Here’s an idea I totally ripped off from my favorite sports blog, Grantland. I call this the Petrolhead YouTube Hall of Fame. Every so often, I’ll induct five new car-related videos I saw on YouTube that left an impression on me. There are, however, some ground rules: first, no videos of irresponsible driving in public [...]
We call them JDM, but in the United States, they call them imports. The term can mean any car make that isn’t American, but when you say the term “import” to a gearhead (the American term for “petrolhead”), they usually think Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Subaru or Mazda. The Japanese makes still dominate the import scene, [...]
A-toy Bodykits showed off their latest M&S wide bunny concept for the Hyundai Genesis at the 2013 Manila Auto Salon.
The SEMA Show is 100,000 square meters of petrolhead heaven. I saw every single display, every car, and took thousands of photos. I normally write a lot, but this time, I’ll let the pics do the talking. First up: my top 5 exotic cars of SEMA 2013. Honorable Mention: Wide body Lamborghini Murcielago Giovanna Ferrari [...]
Preparing for SEMA is a huge part of getting the most out of the show. For most of us Filipinos, a trip to SEMA could very well be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so squeezing every last ounce of this incredible experience is incredibly important. The show lasts four days, so you might be tempted into thinking [...]
The world-famous Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas, better known as the SEMA Show, is a bucket list event for any petrolhead. It’s a giant celebration of all things automotive, as well as a showcase for auto manufacturers, tuners, and parts makers of all sorts. There is a catch: SEMA is not open [...]
Quite frankly, I’d like to say “I’ll take on of each, please,” but that would be a lame cop-out. The debate between the M3 and the 2.3-16v is basically the story of how the 1980′s era Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM for us normal folk) turned into the legendary series it has become. But before I [...]
It’s rainy season, and wet-weather safety is a huge concern for all cars. Our M3 is no exception. Manila has been battered by heavy downpours a lot lately, so you can be sure that’s something that we’re going to address! To start with, here are some wet weather driving tips from AutoIndustriya: http://www.autoindustriya.com/auto-tech-road-safety/driving-in-a-downpour.html If you’ll [...]
