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)"
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"
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"
