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.

2013 Infiniti QX56 – The Beast

QX5620132

I tried this car the first time around for three days in February, this time around I had a chance to drive the car for exactly 17 days and it is a beast, and I can’t blame anyone for loving this machine. Infinite have an amazing machine on their hands, excellent navigation, simple controls, very comfortable and spacious interior.

Things That I love:

  • 400 Horsepower Beast
  • Looks Like A Whale Or Rhino From the Front, Intimidating Machine
  • It handles and is fast, it accelarates like a rocket for its size
  • Extremely comfortable interior, drove it for 5.5 hours straight without a problem
  • Excellent sound system and navigation
  • Substantially Cheaper then the Lexus
  • Solid Machine, it can handle anything you can throw at it, and I roughed it up a bit
  • Lots of options to control rear seats and AC from the front in an intuitive way
  • Excellent Cameras all on sides and it works great when parking
  • Great Maneuverability, surprisingly fits in amazing places

Honestly I was very surprised how much I liked the QX56, it surpassed my expectations. I am extremely loyal to Toyota because the car just lasts after taking so much torture from my use, but this machine is a beast and I am seriously impressed. I am keeping it in mind in the coming future for an SUV choice. And I wouldn’t buy the Lexus over the Infinite, doesn’t make any sense, its a better car, more options, more powerful, and for a lesser price.

Congrats to Mubarak Al Rumaidhi!

BRK-GR4-Drift

Fantastic job Mubarak and the RedBull Drift Competition this weekend! He came in 3rd place, and the first two spots went to professional racers, so on that scale Mubarak is number one on my scale. I would hope that he could participate in the race in Lebanon but that only goes to first place. Lets hope that Mubarak goes on to bigger and better competitions so he can show skills. Thanks to GulfRun, HuperOptik Kuwait, and Abdulmohsen Abdulaziz Al-Babtain Co fo sponsoring him and supporting him in this endeavor. I hope more events such as these take place in Kuwait, and I hope better venues start popping up in Kuwait for events like these.

Thanks to 7ajieDude for the video coverage! Thanks to HisHersQ8 for the great coverage! Loved seeing the photos!

Lexus LFA vs Nissan GT-R

An epic battle between two amazing Japanese machines, I think this is the question many have been asking, for all the technology and development of the Lexus LFA is it faster then the Nissan GT-R. Luckily MotorTrend Managed to get their hands on one LFA to try against their Nissan GT-R. The LFA sounds amazing and they are drifting it around corners, and sliding into the next, what a machine.

All New Nissan Patrol

Just as the guys over at 4th Ring Road have already posted the new Nissan Patrol is out and a substantial difference of what the machine used to look like. The machine was fittingly unveiled in Emirates as being the state known for off roading and the love of SUVs, its befitting the rival of the Landcruiser to be release here first. Looks like they have made quite a different machine then what they once had, a more upscale look to the machine with a more luxurious interior. Benefitting from a 400 bhp engine a lot of comparisons will be made between the Landcruiser and the Patrol and I’m assuming it will be cheaper as well. Looks like they took to Toyotas formula to change from rugged looks to upscale SUV which is more capable then its predecessor. I’m a huge fan of Nissan and looking forward to seeing this machine on the road, looks like Nissan are going for the same badged nose as all their vehicle lines.

Power comes from a direct-injected 5.6-liter V8 that’s good for 400 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. That engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic and a new electronic four-wheel-drive system with four driver-selectable modes (pavement, sand, rock, and snow). The truck rides on a new four-wheel independent suspension, and incorporates features such as a hydraulic body roll mitigation system, hill start assist, and hill descent control.

Lexus IS-F vs. Nissan GT-R

“The IS-F is as sporty as Lexus can make it without sacrificing one iota of luxury; the GT-R is as luxurious as Nissan can engineer it without sacrificing even a bit of performance. The IS-F is a slightly softer competitor to BMW’s M3; the GT-R is a stiffer, more committed alternative to Porsche’s 911 Turbo.”

 

Never really would think of making a comparison between this two cars, but the quote says it all. I’m looking forward to Toyotas release of the new Supra.
