Back in May, ripples were made in our little automotive sphere as Eurokars was appointed as the second official dealer for BMW in Singapore. Since then, the team involved have been running at full speed to build up their fully-fledged dealership along the automotive shopping belt. While the flagship store has yet to be unveiled, […]Read more "BMW Eurokars brings a new source of Joy to Singapore"
Welp! Turns out the previous shipment of parts was probably nowhere near the last as another issue cropped up soon after dropping off my Webers. Cue exhibit A: Notice anything amiss? Yup, my brand-new Weber 32/36 will not fit my intake manifold! While this could have been a mistake on my part, it really wasn’t, […]Read more "Project 2002: Guess not"
There is no doubt we are living in rather daunting times, having just pulled ourselves through the worst (fingers crossed) of a global pandemic, we had hoped to see light at the end, but now, saddled with constantly unresolved conflicts around the world and an ever-changing climate upending the global economy and supply chains, inflation […]Read more "Freude am Fahren: Driving the BMW G42 M240i xDrive Coupe in Singapore"
I imagine being an automotive writer back in 1994 must have been quite difficult. After just 4 years since its introduction, Singapore’s infamous COE premiums peaked at a mega S$100,000. Having to continually conjure up engaging and relatable content for paying readers must have been quite a challenge, I know this because that is exactly […]Read more "i For You?: Driving the BMW G26 i4 eDrive40i"
Welp! It looks like this is my final post for my lovely Munich Springtime trip roundup! Whilst admittedly I did not set about doing much street spotting, I still managed to capture quite a few interesting autos just walking around town. So without further ado, here are the cars of Munchen. A lovely pair of […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: Street spotting"
Granted, it has been months since my trip to Munich but I still do have a few more things to share, this one though, I’m guessing, isn’t quite for everyone. So, hands up if you’re a doggo pawrent. Good! Now, hands up if you’re the sort of doggo pawrent who can’t resist visiting doggo-related stores […]Read more "An Auto/inu-Otaku in Munich 2022: Strauchdieb"
Having bought parts for the Toyota Mark II, there was no way I could neglect the 2002 right? Of course not! So along with the brand new Momo black edition, some other parts have arrived for the old girl. Yup, a brand new front strut bar because, why not? If you’re thinking it’s been some […]Read more "Project 2002: Final pieces of the puzzle?"
Well, this was an unexpected one. With a long weekend over the country, my initial plans to sleep in seemed well and indeed thwarted after a couple of friends egged me on to call for a meet on our little public holiday. Figuring that putting the word out at such late notice might result in […]Read more "Summertime madness. Cars & Kopi Summer 2022."
It has been quite a while since I last updated on the Mark II, mostly because I haven’t really been doing anything to it. It’s been driving decently and reliably with little to write about. But with the Yen currently at a very favourable rate, I figured it was time to do some internet shopping. […]Read more "Project Mark II: Overnight(ish) from Japan"
Chances are if you’re an automotive geek, you’re probably into toy and model cars as well right? No? Keep reading anyway. For those who do enjoy collecting or looking at these little miniature delights, I’d highly recommend dropping by Obletter Spielwaren if you’re in Karlsplatz/Marienplatz, the main shopping district. Located right at the very end […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: Obletter Spielwaren"
