So without further ado, here are the cars of Munchen. A lovely pair of […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: Street spotting"
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.

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.

“The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.” Serendipity, a single word that quite aptly, describes how it came to be that someone from Singapore could have one of his most amazing automotive experiences ever, halfway across the world, with little to no prior planning whatsoever.

Ahead of us lay hundreds of kilometres worth of driving, across vast liberating stretches of the Autobahn, around the lively meandering hills of the Bavarian countryside surrounded by the Alps and even a raucous blast thundering through the Jochpass mountain pass, Germany’s most winding road. And in our hands are two keys, each equipped to […]Read more "The Grand Tour(ers): Driving the G07 X7 M50i xDrive and the BMW G16 M850i xDrive 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.
