New Car In Brunei - Porsche 718 Cayman and Cayman S

Here it is people the latest 718 Cayman in both non S and S models.  The grey is the normal Cayman whereas the red is the S model.  To be honest, this latest 718 Cayman looks so freaking awesome especially in red.  Love the new "turbo" wheels design by Porsche.  Very very good looking car as compare to previous generation Cayman.  I think this time Cayman won the best looking round over Boxster.

Car Spotting In Brunei - GODZILLA!

These are 2 classic photos from SHH Workshop.  While looking at these pictures sure bring back lots of nostalgic moment back at old SHH Proshop workshop. The owner coincidentally lived at the same suburb as me during that time.  And yes he is also a friend of mine.  I can't believe it has been more then 10 years.  

This is the first and only Nissan Skyline BNR34 GT-R aka GODZILLA to had landed at our Kingdom! The car is not official Nissan import but thru grey import.  This picture here is when the car is at it's top prime.  This car is a drag racing focus machine with almost 800~900hp on tap!  Owner also fitted it with the first HKS Sequential gearbox in Brunei which you know has since changed hand to my friend Nissan Silvia S15

The aerokit you are looking at is from performance design house, VEILSIDE.  The kit model is called VS-GT and it is original from front to the rear carbon fiber spoiler.  Not sure you millennial had heard of Veilside or not.  They are the top company during the early and late 90s.  You may have seen their orange wide body Veilside RX-7 FD in "Fast and Furious:Tokyo Drift" driven by Han! They have build many crazy top speed cars.  This particular GT-R has since changed to grey color and the front Veilside bumper kit is now fitted on to my friend brothers Nissan STAGEA Autech 260RS.  And yes it is also the one and only 260RS in Brunei.

Porsche Boxster S Gear Shifting Problem!!!

Well, I was half way in my beautiful shower and my wife called me and told me the Boxster is stucked in reverse gear!  I was a bit puzzle when she mentioned that to me.  So I quickly hop out of the shower and zoom straight Sg.Akar roundabout where she is stranded.  Thank god it was just a few minutes from our home.

When I check on the car I realised the gear is indeed stucked in reverse gear.  She told me the gear shift suddenly became "loose" when she was shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear.  So she stop at the roundabout and try to shift to 1st gear which incidentally shifted to reverse gear. 

I called "Porsche Assistance" which then connected me to Porsche Malaysia.  (Yes!  Porsche Malaysia LOL) I explained to the assistance over the phone about the stucked reverse gear.  I was then told to wait for a return call and so we wait around 10mins.  She told us since our car is no longer under warranty then there won't be any free towing.  I was like WTF? come on, my insurance already covered free towing.  I don't care about the free towing.  I just want to know is it safe to tow the car in reverse gear!!!  Apparently the assistance is no help but thank goodness I called up QAF Porsche Service Advisor, Ira, and she contacted her supervisor and advised me what to do during the towing.

What a night!  We waited for the tow truck to arrive and now my lil Boxster is resting at QAF Eurokar Porsche.  Tomorrow I will be going to the showroom and have a chit chat to see what the heck is going on.  Hopefully is nothing major.
