Porsche Built 300,000 Boxster/Cayman!

It was 15 years ago the very first Porsche Boxster joined the Porsche family. Last week, with its sister model Cayman, Porsche had produced 300,000 Boxster/Cayman. This is a success history for Porsche itself.

The No.300,000 Porsche Boxster Spyder(above pic) will be going to a lucky owner in Germany. That also means that I am 1 of 300,000 people in the world that own a Porsche Boxster :P

Peugeot 5008

Good morning!
I am sure my readers already knew I bought a Peugeot 5008 as my family rides. It's being like 2 months since I took ownership of the car and is time to talk a bit about it.

This car was officially imports by T.C.Y Motors(Local dealer for Peugeot, Audi, Victory Bike, Ssangyong and Chery). There are currently only two Peugeot 5008 in Brunei. A black one and a Vapor grey which I am driving.

The price for this car was set at $62k++, it was on offer at $58k++ but we got a good deal lower then that price. The salesman who handled my car was Syful. Highly recommended if you are looking for a Peugeot.

These pictures here were taken at old T.C.Y Motors showroom before we took ownership of the car.

Our Peugeot 5008 parked next to Peugeot 108(a re-badged Toyota Aygo)

Me and my wife were here to inspect the car

The "test-drive" car. Syful drove the black one from the new Showroom for me to test drive. I have this habit of not testing car that I am planning to get. Why? Well, I would like to have that "first feel" of the new car by using my own new car. Secondly, since I already confirmed the car I don't see the point of testing it. LOL

Re-Fresh ER34 - New ER34 3-Pods Gauge Holder

Remember the problem with my gauge holder in ER34? Well, that method didn't work. After one month of repairing, it finally gave in as shown on the picture above.

I was damn disappointed because I couldn't save it and I only had it recently wrapped in 3D carbon sticker. The worst part I was worrying in my head was where the hell am I going to get a replacement? I did ask for a quote from SHH-Proshop and ended with a $300-$400 price range for a brand new gauge holder.

I was going to go for it but did a quick search on the Internet, and guess what? Thanks to the Web, I managed to get hold of a spanking brand new gauge holder from a local dude who is trying to sell it. He lives in SERIA and thank goodness he still has the item when I called. The price he was asking? Only $160.00 and is brand new. He also own a 4 door ER34 but ended up never using the gauge holder.

I must say this is the only lucky thing that has happened this month. Check out the new gauge holder :")
