Eric Hong bought the 2012 Nissan Murano in December of 2012. His daughter was just born and he needed a bigger vehicle. Even with it being a Murano, Hong couldn't help himself with adding some modifications to it. "I wanted to try something different than others," Hong mentions, "a slammed SUV was my idea!" The Murano's first setup included RS-R lowering springs with 20-inch Work Gnosis GS1 wheels. With this setup, Hong's goals weren't quite achieved yet. "It's really difficult to find parts for my car as it's not as popular as others," Hong states. An custom air suspension was made from AirREX for the Murano, and by this time, along with two friends, Hong opened Xconcept Motorsport for business and became the official distributor for Avant Garde wheels in Australia and New Zealand. In order to achieve the best fitment as well as promoting their business, Hong chose Avant Garde for his next setup.

The Murano does catch a lot of attention, including unwanted attention from the police. In its current form, Hong mentions that the 22x10 wheels and air suspension has been detected quite a few times from police. But like many automotive enthusiasts, it doesn't stop Hong from doing what he loves.
