Permaisuri Thursday // E Class on Carlsson

To be honest I used to be rather skeptical towards single-tuner wheels. Sometimes I think perhaps they only exist for the company’s profit-taking sake, as an attempt to make available every single replacement parts for a particular car brand. From bodykit lips to badges to interior handles, and lastly to wheels. A bit too generic to my liking. Instead, I’d …

Velocity // 3037S HKS Evo IX MR from Surabaya

These days two things are definitely true in our car culture. 1) Money can’t buy taste. 2) Money can’t even always buy you the cars. Take today’s case of the Lancer Evolution IX MR as an example. I was quite surprised finding out that the second-hand prices of these older gen Evo’s are comparable to that of the Evo X. …

Achievements Unlocked // DMC Aventador on PUR

I’ve met a lot of people these days who are getting lost in the midst of their own busy schedules. Lives unbalanced, dreams forgotten. Trying to get hold of everything while not actually focusing on anything. Throwing so many darts so fast that none hits the bullseye. Some claim they lack the skills, others don’t even know what has happened. …

Purpose Built // Turbo Civic from Palembang

I could never get tired observing Honda’s generations, especially when it comes to the Honda Civic. Started its life as a practical compact sedan, with subtly sporty looks and huge potential for mods, the Civic often ends up as one of the most preferred base for project cars. Even Honda itself is producing Type R and RR versions on top …
