I’ll have to admit, there’s going to be bias. Not just because I love everything MIni but also because I have some amazingly fond memories of driving a John Cooper Works Clubman from Frankfurt, Germany, through the Netherlands towards The Hague before we loaded up onto a Ferry to conclude our journey into the UK […]Read more "Gentle Monster: Driving the F54 Mini Clubman JCW LCI"
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"
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."
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."
First and foremost, this is, sadly, not a Cars & Kopi meet. While the ongoing restrictions brought upon us by the Covid Pandemic have been relaxed to quite an extent, there is still a legal limit to the maximum number of participants an “unofficial” event like a car meet can have (10), but considering that […]Read more "Chill Cars: #Notcars&kopi"
With the BMW iX and iX3 both having made their maiden debuts last year, it was only a matter of time before BMW’s first-ever i4 (and first-ever EV sports sedan I might add) arrives on our sunny island to cater to our local market’s recently re-energised push to get drivers into the seats of more […]Read more "The first-ever BMW i4 lands in Singapore to a warm sunny welcome!"
With the arrival of the BMW U06 2-Series Active Tourer and G42 2-Series Coupe, BMW Singapore has now completed their local lineup of 2’s which quite interestingly also means that the 2-Series now has the most versatile mix of cars on offer. With a choice of a front-wheel-drive 4-door sedan with the Gran Coupe, a […]Read more "2’s company: BMW Singapore’s 2-Series lineup now complete with the 2-Series Coupe and Active Tourer’s arrival"
A little over half a year has gone by since we last took the BMW iX3 out for a drive. Though fresh it might still be, with the introduction of BMW’s “Life Cycle Impulse” updates to the entire X3 range, it’s time to say hello to a newly refreshed iX3. In its pre-LCi form, the […]Read more "Recharged and ready: Driving the BMW G08 iX3 LCi"
Blackpink’s addictively catchy Boombayah introduced the world to a revolutionary Korean-pop group whose popularity would soon rocket towards the stratosphere, a strong synth-heavy dance track filled with hard-hitting bass notes, rapid-fire lyrics and ground shaking choruses. And as I felt each and every pulsating drum beat reverberate through my body with 560 watts of power courtesy of […]Read more "Boombayah: Driving the BMW iX xDrive40"
