Our New Mercedes-Benz CLA200 AMG Line


One of my family just bought this red beauty Mercedes Benz CLA200 AMG LINE.  I was approached to help select a car within a budget of $70k.  She wanted a small yet sporty sedan so it is a no brainer to suggest the Klasse CLA from Mercedes Benz.

The car is priced at BND$69900 at Jati Transport (sole dealer for Mercedes Benz in Brunei).  She waited 2 months for this car to arrive because they were all sold out.  This new batch that arrived actually has new interior face-lifted that is different from earlier model.  It also has added new options that is no-cost to customer.

This car is fitted with AMG Line full aero-kits that comprised of the front bumper, rear bumper and side skirts.

It also come with AMG 18" Sports Wheels.

"Diamond Grille", a must feature for all A-Class & CLA-Class Owners

Updated interior with  new steering wheel, new central console design and larger LCD

The user interface is also new to CLA!

It was a rainy day and the owner was too lazy to collect the car so I took the privilege to deliver the car to the owner!

We know its a matter of time when the Lamborghini Huracan will be here in Brunei.  One lucky man took a quick pic of this car while it was been driven to be registered at JPD.   Hope to see this orange bull personally in the future! Thx @axteltong for the heads-up

Toyota City

2015 Toyota Vellfire

Any Toyota fans out there?  My childhood friend recently sent me these photo while he was holidaying at Toyota City.  Yeap, there is a town in Japan that is named after Toyota.  It is located in Aichi perfecture, east of Nagoya.  Toyota main manufacturer plant , Tsutsumi Plant is also located there.  The town used to be called Koromo but due to the strong ties with Toyota they changed it to Toyota-Shi or Toyota City in 1959.

The city population is almost the same as Brunei population with about 400,000 people living in the area serving mostly for Toyota.  These photos were taken at Toyota Automobile Museum by my friend.  I am sure there are a few more models on display but most likely we had already seen it on road already.

New Cars In Brunei - MINI Cooper 5 Door

Just went with wifey to check out the new MINI 5 Door.  Upon walking toward the car I notice there is nothing much to see,  just additional of 2 rear doors.  MINI has been elongated!  I noticed the leg space on the back seats has also increase but still I am having trouble getting in.  This red MINI ONE 5 door set you around BND$45K++ (showroom price)

I like this white MINI Cooper.  Has some cool matching exterior decals on the door, fender, mirror and roof!  This one is about BND$50K (showroom price).  By the way new generation MINI all has turbo-charged engine, in case you didn't know that already.

New Cars In Brunei - Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor Edition

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Red Vapor Edition has landed in Brunei!  This version has glossy black grilles and badges.  The steering wheel "SRT" logo is back-lit!  Such a cool feature.  The interior also has red and black leather seats.  I was told there is an increase of 5hp(LOL!) from the 6.4litre engine.  This particular  Brilliant White SRT sadly doesn't come with ACC (Automatic Cruise Control).  I will post a video on this feature very soon!  Not sure about the price but was informed there is an increase of price due to rise of US dollars.
