Project : W210 [ Engine & Electrical - Fuel Pump & Fuel Filter ]

[ Engine & Electrical - Fuel Pump & Fuel Filter ]
Fuel Filter - $28.00
Fuel Pump - $59.00 

Finally my fuel pump has arrived after a long 3 weeks wait.  I bought this fuel pump online for BND$59.00 including shipping.  A genuine or OEM will cost about BND$200~BND$400.00

The white box is the fuel filter made by MAHLE.  A German brand that also manufacture OEM parts to all the major car manufacturer.  This particular part I bought it locally for BND$28.00.  Now, I need to arrange another time with my friend to get these two parts replaced.  Hopefully these are the last things I need to do to get the car start!  Will update more again in the next post.

New Car In Brunei - Mercedes Benz AMG GT

Last weekend, JATI Transport Autohaus launched the AMG GT and a very prestine white GT was on full display.  I was planning to drop by and take a closer look but as you can see from the above the car was not available for public to sit in.  So thanks to my friend, Axtel Wong, for sharing these pictures with us.

The reason why the car was blocked because it was already sold to the same guy who owned this matt grey AMG GTS you are looking at below!!!  As I always said, one is never enough!!! Salute to this new owner!

New Car In Brunei - KIA Stinger

Last week was the launching of KIA STINGER performance sports sedan.  I pop by just to check out this particular model, the 3.3litre V6 Twin-Turbo 365hp, the most poweful KIA ever produced.  The standing start performance figure 0-100km/hr is quoted at 4.9sec.  The interior is very well build with lots of options as standard.  My favorite part is the carbon fibre all round interior.  It also comes with Heads-Up Display (HUD).  There are three STINGER models for the Brunei market.  This red one you looking here is the big daddy with and cost around BND$73K+++(O.T.R), a bargain if you ask me for that kind of performances.

Car Spotting In Brunei - BMW 3 Series (E36)


Spotted this tastefully done BMW (E36) 3Series in Kiulap.  This here is how an E36 should be done.  I love how the owners go for the full M-Kit treatment  It is then coupled with the famous front and side white indicator made famously by BMW in the early 90s.  Those cross-spoked wheels finished off the car beautifully.  My only negative about this car is that M badge on the kidney grille. Wish I can see how the interior was done in this car.

New Car In Brunei - Ford Focus RS


While people are talking about the launching of Ford Mustang, Premier Motor has a little surprise for hatchback fans.  This is the Ford Focus RS one of the hottest performance hatch to ever land in Brunei.  This car was hidden away from public when it arrived together in Brunei with the Mustang. 

 The Ford Focus is a 320hp turbo charged AWD machine to compete directly with hot hatch such as Audi S3, AMG A45, VW Golf R.  The car was highly praised by many journalists around the world as a pocket rocket.  It comes with a DRIFT button feature! Not sure about the price but expect it to be around VW Golf R price range.

New Car In Brunei - Ford Mustang (MY2015) **Updated with prices


Here are the photos from today launching of 2015 Ford Mustang.

And here are the exact prices for all of you that have been wondering...

Car Spotting In Brunei - Audi TT Gen.III


I spotted this beautiful grey Audi TT Gen III at Kiulap area last week. I think this is the Audi popular Nano Grey or it can be the Monsoon grey.  Any how AUDI TT sure has slick body line.  Hopefully someone got big wallet and import the Audi TT-RS to Brunei!
