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"
What’s sleek, filled with bleeding-edge automotive tech, can’t be bought and just covered 1,202 kilometres on a single charge? If your answer’s not the Benz EQXX, you’re wrong. First unveiled earlier this year, the engineers at Mercedes-Benz reckoned their (already record-breaking) initial 1,007-kilometre test drive could have gone considerably further so just a week ago, […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: Studio Odeonsplatz by Mercedes-Benz and the Vision EQXX"
If you ever do find yourself with some spare time in Munich after visiting the BMW Welt, I’d highly recommend hopping onto a train towards Motorworld, it’s not that far away and for the auto-otakus in us, there’s always something to interesting to see. Even though I was here not too long ago, I thought […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: Visiting Motorworld München (again)"
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"
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"
Now that I’ve finally compiled my Bavarian drives of the sublime BMW M240i xDrive Coupe and excellent M440i xDrive Gran Coupe, as well as my educational visits to the Munich Motorworld, the BMW Welt, the BMW Museum, the Porsche Museum and the Mercedes-Benz Museum, in addition to my side trips to BMW Group Classic, the […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2021: From Munchen with 💖, random city sights"
As impressive as the rest of the museum is, there is one hall in particular that I’d reckon for those of us who live and breathe cars, is simply jaw-dropping. Filled with automotive legends and magical machines that have triumphed in competition, the hall of the silver arrows. I’m pretty sure that on any other […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Stuttgart 2021: Visiting the Mercedes-Benz museum Part 3"
I’m sure we have all played this game a few times in our lives. The dream car garage game where you’d be asked (or you would ask yourself), money notwithstanding, what 3 cars would you have in your forever garage. Whilst the third car on my list has constantly evolved as I got older, I’ve […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Stuttgart 2021: Visiting the Mercedes-Benz museum Part 2"
