Black Beast Mod - New Shoes

In less then one year of ownership I already used up all my Pirelli Scorpion Zero tyre treads! I only put on less then 20,000km and my Jeep SRT is already asking new shoes.  I chose Yokohama Parada Spec-X this time instead of going back to OEM Pirelli tyres.  These 4 pieces cost me BND$1500.00 compared to BND$700.00 a pop for the Pirelli.  The tyre size chosen is identical to OEM which is 295/45R20 and TyrePro took the privilege to help me installed, aligned and balanced out the wheels.

Black Beast Mod - Installation of INJEN Cold Air Intake

Finally took some courage to have this installed into the JEEP SRT last weekend. INJEN is a American company that specialise in air intake system.  I bought this from an online shop a few months ago and it has been sitting in my storeroom ever since.  It was an easy task that took me about 40minutes to install.  Everything is a straight fit so no big drama. There are a few components that came with the kit (as you can see in the below picture).  There were two types to choose for this kit, a chrome kit or matt black kit.  I chose the black kit because I wanted a stealthy engine bay looks.

My Two Shades of Yellow

Was moving my two cars to rearrange my garage parking and took a few quick shots while my rides are parked together.  The Porsche color is called Speed Yellow whereas the Nissan Skyline shade is called the Lighting Yellow.  As you can see Porsche has a more darker shade and Nissan has a brighter and lighter yellow shade.

Mercedes Benz AMG G63 Spotted

American Muscle vs German Muscle!

Spotted a beast recently when I was shopping at HuaHo Manggis Mall.  This is the first time I encountered a G-Wagon up close. It is not any ordinary G-Wagon, this is the AMG G63!  Its has 540hp from a twin-turbo 6.3 V8 German muscle engine built by AMG! Never realise G-wagon can look so good in white too!  If my knowledge is correct, this is the update 2012 G-wagon because of the LED up the front bumper.  The car has a tall, long but narrow body.  The AMG wheels covered up the stance perfectly.

The coolest feature of this car is the side exhaust!

The New Porsche Macan Has Landed In Brunei!

Yeap it is here already!  I know a lot of  people will ask the obvious question, "How much is it?".  Well there are 3 specifications,  BND$98K for Macan, BND$140K for Macan S and BND$180k for Macan Turbo.  These are estimates standard car prices without options!

I had seen some minor spec-up Macan going from BND108K to 118K.  This particular white example in the showroom is a Macan S and cost a whooping $180k fully spec up!!!  Yes you are looking at a base Cayenne price here!  This car is such a beaut!  I felt in love wit the shape when my friend pull off the cover.  The car scream Porsche DNA instantly!

Sorry for the grainy pictures because I am using my old Note 1 for these photos.  Enjoy!
