Default Exotics I spotted in Malaysia.

I visited the BMW showroom and the Jaguar showroom.

First, the pics of the BMWs.

This showroom had bikes and cars on display. They were also selling Minis but in a different showroom just outside the BMW showroom.



This was the view from my room overlooking the BMW/Mini dealership.

A pair of gloves at the dealership's bike section costed close to 22k. A riding jacket with kevlar at the shoulder, back, chest and elbows costed close to 35k !!

There was an M3 (the red coloured car) on display as also the M5 (white). Apart from these, there were a few Z4's in the parking lot. These were used cars being sold secondhand. There was also a 7 series and 2 3 series(one was a highline version and the other was a standard one).

The bikes were really awesome. K1200RS, R1200 ST, R1200RT, G650X, K1200S, they were all on display. there were also some aftermarket exhausts on display. Also, some jackets, gloves, helmet visors (4k per helmet visor !!) and other accessories like bags, etc... were on sale.

The Mini showroom was also pretty nice, but no variety :P. Obviously. They sell just one car. I did see one Cooper S in the poarking lot. The red one standing outside with the bonnet scoop is the Cooper S.

Now, the pics.

Now, the Jaguar showroom. They had only 3 models on display. I was rather hoping they would have the XF on display, but they had only the X type, the XJ and the XKR on display. The X type and the XJ werent that exciting. They are very old cars and look pretty sad (apart from the front bonnet). The XKR though was a completely different story. That looks gorgeous !!

Nice pics there nikhilb2008. Just couldn't get my eyes off the spanking red M3 and the M5. the Jaguar XK R is a beauty.
But what the heck the pair of gloves cost 22k thats crazy man.

Some more I spotted while walking around....

1). Some vintage car which I could not recognise.




2). Range Rover Sport.



3). Maserati Quattroporte.






4). Merc S class. There were loads of S classes. I saw way too many of them. It almost became common !! the Ritz Carlton hotel was right next to our hotel and they had a fleet of S classes. Most of them were the new ones, but they also had a couple of old S-classes.






5). Nissan Skyline GTR R 34. Godzilla.

Insane. I know !!

It was 1750 ringgits. Multiply by 12.6.

Crazy stuff, but for rich people who own these bikes, it must be a small amount.
