Yesterday was Friday which means from 12pm to 2pm all shops have to be closed for the Muslim prayers. So for non-muslim like us who has nothing much to do during that 2 hours break, will ended up strolling around car showroom checking out new models arrival.
We drove pass Chevrolet showroom and this pearl white SUV caught our attention. It's the new CADILLAC ESCALADE! This Cadillac Escalade was never imported to Brunei because it was build for left-hand drive only. So when we saw a right-hand drive version, it sure get our excitement pumping.
I was mentioning to my friends that this car should cost no more or less around BND180,000. That would be the maximum price I would pay for that car. Then we were told that it is selling for BND$250,000. LOL. That price stunt us a bit. With that kind of price you can actually get a used Ferrari F430 for less then BND$215,000. OR a brand new Range Rover Evoque BND$100K AND a brand new Range Rover sports for that same kind of money!
This Cadillac Escalade is the "FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES ONLY" as stated on the front windscreen. I do not know what engine lies under the hood as the salesperson is not in anyway helping. I do know that it is a 6 seaters car, wheels is riding on 22", it has full leather interior, a sunroof, 4 LCDs screen for back passenger, reverse camera, and lots and lots of LED for front headlamps and rear taillamps.
Next up we dropped by MINI Showroom(again!) because my friend need to settle his final deposit payment. OMG, I actually been into this showroom for more then 30times this year alone. Hahah. This particular MINI Countryman S caught my attention. The color you looking at if I am not wrong is Chilli Red. Awesome color!
MINI Brunei finally imported a Countryman S that is fitted with matt white wheels.
Cheapest MINI in Brunei, the MINI One at brand new price $39,990!
The first MINI Roadster in Brunei! Not sure about the exact price but is near the BND$70K zone. This is different from the cabriolet MINI that my friend bought recently. This is a strictly 2 seaters MINI and it's sold!
