Product Review - RAIN-X Wipers!

 Just bought these sets for my Nissan and Porsche.  I was planning to get the PIAA wiper but decided to give RAIN-X a try.  This cost me BND$12.50each from any HuaHo Department.  I bought two 21" for Porsche front windscreen and one 18" for Nissan rear screen.  

These wipers were easy to fit and took me less then 1minute per wiper.  After the installation,  I did a test run on all wipers and works just fine.  Now we will see how long these wipers will last.  I had PIAA wipers installed on the front windscreen of my Nissan ER34 and it lasted more then 8 years! 

The rear wiper I just replaced is actually the original wiper from Nissan factory when I first got that car.  LOL and that was exactly 13years ago and it was never needed to be replace till now.

The Display that Caught my attention!

When a car caught your attention, you cannot stop thinking about it.  You will go online or showroom and research as much as you can.  This particular Jeep Grand Cherokee 2012 on displayed at HuaHo Manggis Mall back in June was the one that caught my attention. While my wife was shopping at a pharmacy, I was wondering around nearby shops and noticed a car on display just outside the Mall.  I walked toward it and noticed it was a Grand Cherokee.  At first glance, it wasn't love at first sight nevertheless I asked my wife to check it out when she was done with her shopping.  She agreed it was a very nice SUV.   On the same day, I went home and do a quick research about the Jeep Grand Cherokee online.  This is when I came across the new facelift Jeep SRT 2014 edition.  The more I read the more my interest for this car grew.  The next day I called up my salesman who I bought my Dodge Journey from and asked about the price.  And this is how I ended up buying the JEEP SRT!

MINI Saved by Run-Flat Tires!

Last week, my wife had a flat on her Countryman's.  Thank god the car original tires are fitted with run-flat tires.  So instead of me going over to her workplace for wheel change, I had her drove back the car from work.  The car even instruct the driver to drive cautiously and no more then 80km/hr.  Once I got the car and checked the condition, I found out the front left tire had worn from the inside and created a big hole hence the puncture.   The following day I drove to one of my favorite tire shop and had two very worn tires changed!  The new tires doesn't have run-flat though. Why? Because are damn expensive to replace!

Mercedes Benz 350SL

I was at Jati Transport last week with my friend.  He has to drop his car off for part replacement.  This beauty caught my eye when I was strolling in the showroom.   This is the latest SL from Mercedes-Benz and this here is the SL350(lowest engine spec).  Those of you who has deeper pocket can go for the SL500 or SL600.  For those who has even deeper pocket can go for the AMG SL63!  This particular model shown here cost $206,000 showroom price!  For this price the car does come loaded with features and options.   I was kinda disappointed with the interior space though.
