Project Airtrek — The First Service – Part 2

After the first major 2-part service I thought I’d be all good, after spending RM6100…I thought I’d be ready to go! But no, the car was smooth and powerful now but the idle was very lumpy, there was jerking during WOT (wide open throttle) and it STILL kept stalling. This was the part where things […]

I Drove An Aston Martin V8 Vantage In Malaysia!

And no, it wasn’t in my dreams! I’ve always been a huge lover of Aston Martin, a proper homegrown British luxury car marque. Although it’s debatable if Aston is still really British or not (partially Kuwaiti owned now). The actual car I fell in love with was the Aston Martin Virage Volante convertible. Anyway a […]
