“The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.” Serendipity, a single word that quite aptly, describes how it came to be that someone from Singapore could have one of his most amazing automotive experiences ever, halfway across the world, with little to no prior planning whatsoever. It all began […]Read more "Freude am Fahren: Driving the Bavarian Econs BMW 2002 Prototype"
Yes, everyone! The rumours are true. In what has come as a great surprise (or even a shock) to us, BMW Group Asia has appointed a second official BMW dealer for our small sunny island, Eurokars Auto. Set to open its doors in October 2022 at 11 Leng Kee Road, this latest addition to Eurokars’ […]Read more "Two’s Company: BMW Group Asia Appoints Eurokars Auto as Second Official BMW Dealer in Singapore."
Ahead of us lay hundreds of kilometres worth of driving, across vast liberating stretches of the Autobahn, around the lively meandering hills of the Bavarian countryside surrounded by the Alps and even a raucous blast thundering through the Jochpass mountain pass, Germany’s most winding road. And in our hands are two keys, each equipped to […]Read more "The Grand Tour(ers): Driving the G07 X7 M50i xDrive and the BMW G16 M850i xDrive LCI"
I know, I know, if you think it still looks pretty much the same as before, you’re right! While not that much has progressed since my last update, there is some good news in the fact that with manpower issues slowly starting to resolve themselves, work has once again restarted on the ’02. While it […]Read more "Project 2002: Coco be wear"
If you were wondering why I didn’t show any Minis from my previous post, it’s really because of a rather special Clubman I spotted immediately as I walked by. This, everyone, is a Mini Clubman Untold Edition. Launched just a month or two ago as part of a trio of (yet again) special edition Minis […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: Big love from Munich/Mini"
With our quick tour through the BMW museum over and done with, it was naturally time to cross over to the BMW Welt for some additional automotive sightseeing and shopping at the BMW Welt store. Unfortunately for us though, we stepped into the store just as it was about to close for the evening, but […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: Back in the Welt and its shop"
It has been quite the weekend for automotive lovers, hasn’t it (but also, not without incidences)? A day right after our Cars & Kopi gathering, a fellow automotive enthusiast had another morning meet right after with a more focused showcase of old metal. While this meetup brought out some of Singapore’s most interesting cars, the […]Read more "A cavalcade of cars. Classic cars morning."
Is it really happening? Are we really towards the tail end of the pandemic? While we really hope that is the case, what has definitely happened for us in Singapore is the relaxation of rules pertaining to casual meets and with limits of group sizes no longer a concern, it seemed like a good time […]Read more "A long time coming. Cars & Kopi Spring 2022."
Having already visited the BMW Museum a couple of months back, it wouldn’t make much sense to once again run through the halls for another full tour, given that most of the exhibits have remained pretty much the same. That is not to say it was an uneventful visit though because this time around, we […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: A quick tour through the BMW Museum"
Normal travel is back! Or, that’s sure how it looks like a week ago judging by the sheer number of people in the airport when I had the good fortune to once again fly over to the beautiful city of Bavaria for BMW’s launch of the new 7-Series and i7. Full flight service seemed to […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku heads back to Germany"
