Welp! It looks like this is my final post for my lovely Munich Springtime trip roundup! Whilst admittedly I did not set about doing much street spotting, I still managed to capture quite a few interesting autos just walking around town. So without further ado, here are the cars of Munchen. A lovely pair of […]

Granted, it has been months since my trip to Munich but I still do have a few more things to share, this one though, I’m guessing, isn’t quite for everyone. So, hands up if you’re a doggo pawrent. Good! Now, hands up if you’re the sort of doggo pawrent who can’t resist visiting doggo-related stores […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Spectacular, spectacular. That’s pretty much how I’d sum up the massive Mercedes-Benz museum. Spanning nine levels, 16,500 m² of floor space and over 1,500 exhibits documenting not only the history of the marque but of the automobile itself, the beautifully curated Mercedes-Benz museum is an automotive otaku’s dream come to life and worthy of an […]

Back when I was researching for things to do or places to go (other than shopping) for my short stay in Stuttgart, I came across a couple of blogs and vlogs about a little wine-making medieval town not too far from the city centre by the name of Esslingen Am Neckar.
