Car Spotting In Brunei - Subaru WRX STi Type RA


I spotted this ultra rare Scooby WRX STi Type RA while travelling to work.  A lot of STi Ver.6 used to be roam the street of Brunei.  Nowadays spotting one is as rare as spotting a R34 GT-R.  There were only 2000 units(sedan) produced worldwide by Subaru.  Another 500 units were made for the wagon version.  Majority of the Type RA went to Japan, Australia and Asean markets. Type RA has unique body aero, interior features, special colors and others as compared to normal STi.

This is the top of the range V8 Lexus IS-F.  I have never seen a white unit before.  There is a blue one running around and I always thought that was the only unit in Brunei.  Last week this beautiful white unit was parked near my office.

The Day I Test Drove A Subaru Outback

Good evening people!  A family member just added this rugged Subaru Outback into our garage.  This car cost around BND$49K O.T.R.  She brought the car immediately to CERAMIC PRO in Kiulap to have the body paint properly sealed.  She even went for the Platinum package which cost a whooping  BND$2K++!

I took the car for a drive immediately when it was done coating after 2 days.  The car is fitted with 2.5litre boxer engine.  It came with 6 speed CVT and has 175hp on tap.  The car is extremely quiet. Being a new car everything is very very fresh especially the new car smell.  Everyone loves new car smell!

The car also comes with Subaru own 6.2" infotainment touch screen and also 570watts 13 speakers Harman/Kardon sound system!

Car is good for daily as it is easy to maintain and Subaru BOXER is truly bullet proof.

Car Spotting In Brunei - Nissan GT-R (Extremely Heavily Modified)

As you can see this week is all about the NISSAN GT-R a.k.a Godzilla.   This one here belong to a friend of mine.  This is currently the most powerful GT-R in Brunei.  Many of you may have read HYPERTUNE magazine as this car was featured in their front cover last year.   I spoken to the owner when I took these pictures to share with you guy.  He humbly mentioned to me that he has not used the high boost yet on his car as it was very very scary to propel down the highway with this much insane power.   This car is currently pumping out insane 4 digits horsepower and required 3 freaking fuel pumps.

Apart from the obvious wrapping, the car is fitted with Fiogiato wheels and aero-kits.  Not sure from which company but that wing is goddamn huge!!!  The interior is also fitted with full roll-cage for safety protections.  The ECU is run by MOTEC and also comes with MOTEC Dash fitted right in front of the central instrumental.  Those who are not into tuning world, MOTEC is one of the best or the best engine management for after market tuning.  It ain't easy to tune so someone need to be very specialized and knowledgeable in MOTEC tuning in order to fully utilize the ECU mapping.  Hopefully I can ride shotgun in the future if owner permit.
