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"

Produced since 2014, and to the chagrin of every hardcore traditionalist BMW “fan”, the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer twins were a pretty quirky and strange addition (some might say, experiment) to our (my) favourite German marque’s range of cars. A friendly and compact front-wheel-drive MPV created to introduce new customers to the […]Read more "Family guy(ing): Driving the BMW U06 218i Active Tourer M Sport"
What if I told you that tucked away in Forstern, a little town within the district of Erding, Bavaria, is where one of the most impressive automotive body shops I have ever seen or heard of resides?
