Dodge Journey R/T

Good morning readers! Today I would like to formally introduce to you guys my new ride, Dodge Journey R/T.  If you are an avid readers, you would already knew this car was a replacement for my Peugeot 5008

The car was purchased from Daha Auto Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of GHK Motors.  They are the sole agent for Dodge Brunei and is located at the newly developed area at Sumbangsih Bahagia at Beribi.  

I am a big fans of Dodge and when there is a need for a replacement on our family vehicle, it is a no brainer for me to look for this brand.   The car is priced at BND$49,990 on-the-road.  And here is what comes with the car:-

  • 2.4 DOHC 4-cyclinder
  • 175hp
  • 4-Speed Automatic
  • Front Wheel Drive
  • 19" Aluminum Wheels
  • New Dodge Emblem
  • New Face-lifted Front Grille
  • New Face-lifted LED Taillamp
  • New Face-lift Front and Rear Bumper

  • 7 Seaters Full Leather Interior
  • Soft Touch Interior
  • 8.4" Uconnect Touchscreen In-car Entertainment
  • 9" Rear LCD with Wireless Headphones
  • ALPINE 380Watts Sound System (6 speakers and 1 subwoofer)
  • Reverse Back-up Camera
  • Keyless Entry
  • 3-Zone Climate Control
  • LED Interior Lightning
  • Child Booster Seats

 8.4" LCD with Uconnect

Third Climate Control Air-Con with 9" LCD

All round LED interior lights

 Rear boot with third row seats(folded down)

Reverse camera with Parking assist

 I don't think there will be any modification done to this car at the moment.  I am very happy with the capability of what this car is providing to our family. The only thing I regretted was choosing the exterior color in white instead of black. Maybe in the future I might have this car wrap in black or matt black color that will have big chrome wheels to go along with it.  We will see how.

Anibal Automotive Design - RUSH Speedster

I kinda knew this is be coming, remember the previous post on RUSH?  Well, here is the Boxster version!!!  Called the RUSH SPEEDSTER!!!  I wonder how much this full kit conversion will cost to ship to Brunei?  Every panel of the original body will be replaced judging from these pictures.  Oh I just found out Anibal Automotive Design is based in Montreal, Canada.  Interesting!

Random Cars/Bikes of Brunei

I took this picture recently in Qlap roundabout, I always wonder whether they will be bothering replacing a proper rear window?  Seriously,  it is an eye sore looking at that piece of plastic taped around the rear boot.

I checked a few online MINI shops, these items will cost roughly $300-$450.  I am grateful that Virginia gave these to us for free.  I am definetely going to buy another MINI from her, that is if we ever going to get another MINI :p

Freebies from MINI Pt.1

Good morning Readers,  here are some freebies that was given to us when we were collecting our car last Saturday.  We received a nice MINI umbrella and a "CONFIDENTIAL" document from our salesperson, Virginia.  You also can see a pair of MINI keys on top of the MINI owners manual.

I was laughing when she presented this "CONFIDENTIAL" document back in the MINI showroom.  This thing is HUGE!  I thought it was some kind of top secret mission for me.  When we went back home and opened it, we then realised it was only a windscreen blind.  LOL!  Talk about dramatic.

Which One III? Part 6 - Collection at MINI, Mabohai

Woohoo!  Finally the car was ready for pick-up!  Big thanks to Virginia, our salesperson for handling the JPD matter professionally!  She had a bit of trouble registrating the car because of the wheels which was not in the specification. Cut the story short, she managed to get our car registered and engraved!

When we reached the showroom around 3pm, our Countryman S was already sitting in the delivery garage waiting to be deliver to us.  I took some quick shots with our Boxster S.  Now we have two "S" models in our garage!

Behind my wife while driving home~

More update on our Mini Cooper S Countryman in my future post.  This will also be the last post for "Which One III?".  Thanks for reading!

Which One III? Part 5 - The Wait

Today, I drove pass QAF to check on my MINI Countryman S.  As you can see from the above picture it is sitting there together with other BMW that is also awaiting for delivery.  I was told tomorrow is the day where my car will be register and I pray that everything will be fine and smooth.  

The car had been cleaned up, polished and waxed as you can see from the below picture.  The new registration number is also up.  All it needs now is the key to be handed to me and I am officially the happiest man for this week.

Another visit to Porsche Showroom

I am having some trouble starting my Boxster S lately.  I am not sure what it is but there is one moment I have to sit inside for like 5 minutes trying to start the car.  It happened like once every fortnight.  I went to Porsche showroom to get some answer.  So as it turns out my Boxster is low on voltage. So time for a new car battery!  

Here are some pictures I took from the showroom!  Two brand new Porsche 911 Carrera (991).  Price if you must ask is BND$325,000.  LOL!
