Friends Rides - Porsche 911 Targa 2 (964)

This black beauty belong to a good friend of mine.  In case you are living under the rock Porsche air-cooled models are highly sorted around the world and are actually appreciating in value especially the 964 and 993.  

My friend is trying to finalise some small issues with the engine and once it is done I will be taking it out for a spin!  Can't wait to try my very first rear engine, rear wheel air-cooled Porsche!

Car Spotting In Brunei - Audi TT

Three years ago I saw this beautiful ride at AUDI Showroom at Beribi.  Today I get to see it again at Kiulap.  What a beautiful car it is.  The color might not be everyone taste but the different bumpers and spoiler sure have it stand out of the crowd!

Car Articles - KUHL Racing Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R/GT-T

What do you guys think of this aftermarket performance aerokit from KUHL RACING from Japan.  Last year KUHL RACING presented a gold engraved Nissan GT-R R35 and won the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon Custom Car Contest.  This year in 2016 they decided to transform the R34 as you can see here.  The kit can be fitted to both R34 GT-R and R34 GT-T.  Not sure about the price but it got my heart pumping to swap a new kit for my aging GT-T.  What do you guys think?

Car Articles - KIA STINGER

The KIA Stinger finally here ladies and gentlemen! I had been following this model from its conceptual design in 2013 to full production model as seen here!

This is KIA take to compete with the BMW 4 Series.  Just look at it!  My jaw literally dropped when I saw the video on Youtube.  If you didn't know I am a big fans of KIA models.  I really love their take on design to compete with the top.   If you look at it the car also screams tons of design cue from the Germans.  There is a bit of Mercedes, BMW and Porsche in it.  The interior at one glance you would had thought it is a Mercedes Benz model interior. LOL!

There are two engine choices, a 255hp 2.0litre 4 bangers and the almighty 3.3 V6 with 365hp that sprint from nor to 62mph (100km/hr) in 5.1 sec!  That is the same time as my Porsche Boxster S!

So the big question here is, will it come to Brunei?  I certainly hope so but there are several models from KIA which are not sold in Brunei.  Hopefully KIA Brunei will see the potential of this model and bring in to compete with the Germans.  As for the price I am guessing around BND50K to BND60K.

Car Spotting In Brunei - Porsche 911 Carrera (997.1)


This is the Porsche 911 Carrera S (997.1).  This model is quite rare to spot in Brunei as there is not many 997.1 in Brunei.  My guess is probably 5-8 units exist in Brunei.  This one here is a "S" model because I noticed the red caliper from the picture.  Non-S model caliper is usually painted in black colors.
