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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Having covered both the BMW Welt and museum with plenty of time left for the day, I figured a quick pop into the gift shops wouldn’t hurt since I wasn’t in any rush to go anywhere. Whilst the museum also has its own little gift shop, it is as I mentioned, on the small side […]

With quite a number of exhibits within the vast halls of the BMW Museum, it’s not easy picking a favourite, or even a few favourites. For me, this showcase of retired racing legends is one of them. The cars in this hall might be the same as my initial visit four years ago, yet they […]

For most people, I’m pretty sure a visit to Munich wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Hofbräuhaus beer hall. Personally,I reckon your holiday to the Bavarian capital wouldn’t be fulfilled until you paid a visit to the BMW Welt. And that visit to the Welt? Well, that’s of course not going to be […]

Considering it takes over 13 hours to reach Munich by plane from Singapore, it always makes plenty of sense to add in a couple (or more) of days of self-exploration whenever there’s an opportunity to travel to Germany. It is a lovely country with beautiful scenery, great (though with disproportionately large amounts of) food, lovely […]

For the casual visitor, a trip to the BMW Welt will probably be a nice way to experience Munich’s ultimate exports, but for fans of the marque, no visit is complete without heading next door into the BMW Museum. If the Welt is a propellerhead’s dream, the BMW Museum is probably their Heaven. It is […]

The Bucket list, we all have them, for most automotive enthusiasts, our list can probably stretch the entire distance to the Moon and back. I think it is safe to say that for a BMW fanatic, making a trip to the Welt is probably something that is on their list and should be done at […]

They say, good things come to those who wait. While it does seem like a very sensible principle to abide by, i’ve never really been a very keen follower of that philosophy, until recently. An email appeared on my inbox with an invite to Munich, the BMW M Festival and to the 24hour race on […]
