FVD in Kuwait – Every Performance Part You Want From One Place

FVD

Finding the right automotive performance parts supplier is always a difficult process. In my case I’m always doing something with my M6, and a good supplier is always a difficult task to go through since you don’t trust them and slowly keep increasing orders.

About 10% of online automotive parts retails are crap, you get a bad apple once in a while and I have dealt with a few. During GulfRun we got informed that FVD Brombacher is opening up in Kuwait and I was excited because this is a German parts supplier and its always good to have more in Kuwait, FAST is also a good supplier from Audi in Kuwait, and Kromozone from Chevy as well.

But in my case I have a German car and recently ordered several parts from FVD Kuwait. Complete new brake system from Brembo through FVD Kuwait, he sorted out the details and including shipping came out cheaper then the online parts seller in the US, which shocked me. Also picked up DOT 6 Brake Fluid through them because of how much I abuse my car I want to make sure my brakes last. I was looking into some other performance parts but he convinced me not to get it, it takes a great supplier to tell you not to get something which will affect him negatively but he won a customer for life.

They provide the parts but don’t install it, in my case I take it to the dealership for installation at BMW, they have a few good guys. A few dealerships do installs like Audi, Chevy, BMW, and Porsche they each have their specialty.

If you are looking for any parts for any European or Japanese car, these are the guys to talk to.

GULFRUN – Fun On The Track

Watching this video makes me want to go outside and race someone, seriously it gets my blood pumping and is a hell of a lot of fun. I can’t wait until GulfRun in Jan, nothing left, it’s around the corner. As usual the car show is in 360 Mall which is going to be a lot of fun.

Exotics Racing – Las Vegas

When in Las Vegas one of the top things on my list to do was to go to Exotics Racing. The best choice of high end vehicles to drive all in one stop and for a relatively cheap price for what you could do with these machines. Have a choice of several super cars and for a bunch of guys its like a kid in a candy store. I have always wanted to drive a Scuderia on a track before since I have heard that it’s just an amazing machine to drive. Then there are so many other beautiful machines, and you have these amazing track instructors with you. There is also a drift ride in a Corvette Z06, and they go through 10 sets of tires a day for that corvette. Honestly the whole thing was a hell of a lot of fun for a cheap price.

You get in the car you chose, you get about 5 laps per car and you have a combination of vehicles if you want. In my case I only want to drive of the Ferrari F430 Scuderia, some of my friends took the Ferrari F430 F1 and the Lamborghini LP560. The is endless, you have all these vehicles on the track: Lamborghini LP640, Lamborghini LP560-4, Ferrari F430 F1, Ferrari F430 Scuderia, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Audi R8, and Porsche Carerra. The only thing they were missing was a Porsche GT3 or Turbo, but they have every thing else you could imagine. You jump in the seat and the trainer gets in the car with you, you would think they would tell you take it easy, but in my case the guy made me floor the gas and turn hard, and at time I thought I was going to spin out but it held on. I was loving every moment of it, the only thing I wanted was a bigger track to enjoy some more high speed turns then this short one. All the driving range from $200 to $500 which depends on the car and combinations, I would recommend it for anybody going to Las Vegas and they are supposed to be opening in Los Angeles soon, I’m just hoping its going to be very soon.

Benz SLS AMG vs. Audi R8 V10 vs. Porsche 911 Turbo in Vegas

There isn’t much I can say other then watch the video, it is everything a man can dream of. Motortrend take the three new supercars to the twisting roads of Las Vegas for some head to head testing. I just love the sound of these machines, the R8 does seem to have the best engine, I do love the Gullwings of the SLS AMG, and the new 911 Turbo is just out of this world.

XBow in Kuwiat @ Bike World

Got a call from BikeWorld that they have a surprise waiting in their showroom, I had an inkling but wasn’t sure. I headed straight over only to find the beast sitting on the showroom floor, the infamous KTM X-Bow right in front of me. I was impressed when I first saw this machine on the track during GulfRun 5, but seeing it again made my heart skip a beat. Luckily this machine is also fully street legal, so you can drive on it on the streets but I would prefer to drive it on the track. Words can only describe the ferocity of the machine, powered by Audi 2.0 liter turbo FSI four it can fly down the road since its frame is made out of carbon fiber. The engine is mated to an Audi six-speed manual with military precision design. I like how it looks and the best part about it is the minimalistic design. One of the key features that I like about this machine is that its serviceable by Audi and you can tune the engine from any manufacturer who modifies Audi engines.

I knew this is an expensive piece of machinery, I have been asking about it for over a year now and it I kept getting pricing between 41’000 to 45’000 KD from the Emirates or Qatar. There was no budging on the price and it was too much, and this wasn’t even for the Superlight version, with upgraded brakes, modified suspension and lighter body. This KTM X-Bow at BikeWorld is selling for 34’995 KD which is barely above cost, its insanely cheap for an X-Bow, cheaper then the used ones online. I know this isn’t a machine for everyone but who ever gets it is someone who will love it dearly.

MTM Audi R8 GT3-2

The Audi R8 is an intriguing machine that has taken the supersports by storm, amazingly handling and powerful machine, but it just needed a little tweak to make it that monster on the street. That is why there are successful German aftermarket companies such as MTM around. They have turned this V8 R8 into a different type of creature on the road based on its many modifications turning it into the GT3-2.

The modified 4.2 Liter V8 has been done but the modification to the drivetrain is something new. The Quattro since has been changed to a pure rear wheel driving machine, changing the driving dynamics of the machine behind that Audi steering wheel. Carbon fiber aerodynamic parts, large front and rear brakes, adjustible suspension, Bilstein adjustable suspension, MTM’s Bimoto forged wheels are some of the changes made. For the most important part being the modified engine bringing it to 560 bhp and 428 lb-ft, a little more pull then the R8 V10 and a different driving experience.

ABT Audi R8 GTR

The Audi R8 is one of those cars which are nearly perfect, and Audi just keeps improving it, but it takes someone specialized to take the machine to the next level. ABT have squeezed the power it wants out of the V10 as well as skimming most of the fat from the car. They have engineered the car to be at optimal level to serve as a race car and a drivable day car, its no easy feat to take off 100 KG from already highly race ready machine but they have managed to do it perfectly.

With all the modifications comes a nice amount of power to compliment it, with the 5.2 FSI V10 modified to 620 bhp from its stock power. With the weight reduction and power increase this car becomes lightening fast with a 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 9.9 seconds, and a top speed of 325 km/h which is insane. ABT has limited production of this specimen to 25 vehicles, and I haven’t seen a price announced for it yet.

The Fast and the Furryious

This is one of the funniest car rental ads I have seen, the best part are the costumes. Seems like a new luxury car rental agency has opened up in Los Angeles, as the dream goes if you have a nice cars then the girls will follow and these guys are living their dream. The best part of the whole thing are the bear suits, beating the crap out of each other with the suit on and then driving back with them is genius. Renting the Audi is ridiculously expensive in the states, I was surprised to see that it was more expensive then the California.
