Project N.E.S II - Exhaust or Wheels?


Good morning ladies and gentlemen!  Project N.E.S.II is taking another step further.  Although I must admit this project is kinda slow which I did mention when I first announced.

My birthday is coming soon, June to be exact and I was thinking of treating myself and my Boxster S.  So, either get a set of 19" wheels or a REMUS sports exhaust.   Not sure which wheels I am getting as I am still browsing online for all kind of models.  On the other hand, I already decided for Remus Exhaust system if exhaust is what I am getting.  I am kinda indecisive at the moment. Was thinking of getting both at once but that would be too costly as I am on a budget.

What do you guys think?  Wheels or Exhaust?

New Porsche 911 (991) has landed in Brunei!

The newest Porsche 911 generation has landed code name 991! As expected from Porsche, their car design is more toward on revolution then evolution. For the untrained eyes, the car look almost the same as the outgoing model.  For Porschephile like me, will instantly differentiate the differences. The car over shape is retained but there are lots of new facial design on both front and rear! I just love that new rear LED tail lamp.  Looks just so freaking cool!

This white 911 is the only new 911 in Brunei at the moment, and it is already sold!  I am not too sure about the exact price but I recalled it was somewhere above BND250,000.  Porsche 911 is always my big dream to own one.  Gonna work hard!

 Check out the cut out of 911 logo on the side display panel!  This are original display panel imported all the way from Porsche Germany!

The only 911 I got for myself are these two 911 brochures...sniff sniff..

Lizard Killed My Peugeot Air-Con!

When I was at Peugeot showroom 2 days ago to collect my Peugeot due to air-con failure,  the technician presented me a bill with an attached parts.  I looked at the bill and was shocked to see a halved lizard body.  LOL.  I honestly was shocked.  I didn't realise the attached parts is a lizard.

Yes you read that right,  they found out why my air-con suddenly shut down.  It was this poor halved body lizard.  Apparently the lizard was jammed in the air-con fan or something I couldn't remember.  Phew, what a relieve.  I was starting to question the reliability regarding about this air-con problem.  Now I can lay this doubt to rest.  Peugeot rock-on!!!  (Touch wood).  Hehe

Question....where is the other half of the lizard?

Peugeot 5008 Air-Con Problem!

It seem like my Peugeot 5008 cannot get off the headline from my blog this few days.  Yesterday while driving off to lunch, my air-con system in my 5008 decided to just shutdown itself.  I decided to park the car on the side of the road to try and figure what is wrong with it.  I tried restarting the engine, pressing all sorts of button on the dash and still no cold air coming out of the vents.  So I went straight to Peugeot showroom and left the car with the technician.  Hopefully it is nothing major.  Will keep you guys up to date!

FEDERAL 595 on Peugeot 5008

Here are the new shoes for Peugeot.  It cost me BND$155.00 a piece.  All 4 tires were replaced.  In my opinion, it is quieter and has more grips then the previous tires.  In high speed, I can feel the tires bouncing of the road effortlessly with minimal viration inside the cabin.  I would probably stick back to this tires next time due to the quality and price!

Peugeot 5008 getting new kicks too!!!

Guess what readers, my third car also went for full tires replacement too!  Can you believe the condition of my Peugeot is worst then my Porsche.  I didn't even realise there are no treads at all on all 4 tires.  This is so careless of me.  Anyway, yesterday I took the car to WESTIN in Gadong.  I decided to try Federal tires because a few of my friends are using it and they said it is a good tires brand to try.  It is affordable too!  It is made in Taiwan(as long as it is not from China, I am fine with it LOL).

Very botak right?

Getting new Shoes for Boxster S

 It's the time of the year where my ride needs a new set of tires.  Sadly, for my little Boxster S, finding the right size seem to be a problem.  Can you believe the whole of Brunei do not have my rear tires size of 265/40-18"??  I searched Yokohama, Bridgestone, Federal and other top brands and all of them gave me the same answer.  I went to my usual tires shop in Berakas and thankfully the owner of the shop loan me 2 used tires for temporary uses. What a day man!!!!!! Now I need to wait don't know how long for new tires....

Another surprise find of the day is the brake caliper.  It is actually made by BREMBO!  Wow!  Cool isn't it?  I never thought Porsche actually outsource their brake caliper with BREMBO.

Here are the rear tires, very very botak already ! LOL!
