A week ago, I received VIP Invitation from Mercedes Benz Kuwait inviting us for SUV test drive day event. Wednesday morning, I drove down to Sahara Resort. In the main entrance of the resort, there was registration desk to take your personal details and to choose any of the SUV’s cars. So from all of the SUV’s I chose Mercedes Benz G65.
Around 5 minutes, one of the crew took me to the car and explain the main specifications. Myself and one of the crew drove own the main roads nearby, to test the car power.
From the driving experience. I disliked the interior and the comfortability of the car. I liked the exterior design and shape. But, I thought I’m driving a truck and not Mercedes Benz SUV. At the end, I event were organized professionally to test drive your dream Mercedes Benz SUV car.

Around 3.00pm I arrived to Kuwait International Fair main entrance and saw huge traffic in the entrance. So I tried to find a parking close to the event location. At that day, the weather is so sunny and hot. So I arrived to the guests entrance, I forget to bring my invitation car with me, so the entrance staff refused to let me in. After minutes, their were another lady holding a guests name and thanks god our blog name is listed.
I stayed standing around 20 minutes looking for a place to sit but it is so busy, hot and terrible to sit under this pressure. So I enforced myself to leave the event because first of all the place should be only for guests/VIP and everyone is entered, their should be extra places to sit, the organization of the event is not that good and the weather didn’t helped me much. So I had to leave back home.
Last year’s event Redbull Car Park Drift 2012 were much better. It is much organized and the event started at night were much helpful. If you need to find more about the event, check 7ajidude’s event coverage post.
I passed to Toys R us store last week at Mall360, get birthday toys for my nephew. So I passed to the cars section and saw some interesting toys cars. I remembered 20 years back when I buy these car objects and decorate them with a colourful exterior design. As well, I sit for hours painting them at our home garden and keep it for a day to make sure the car is dry.
After that I play with them and place it at my home cupboard. I lost most of the cars when we moved from home to home. So I thought to buy one of the cars and start decorate/brand it with Q8Path theme.
What a wonderful days!
First time since 2006, GMC Yukon Denali is fully redesigned with extreme changes in the interior and exterior designs. I haven’t founded any official specifications of the new GMC Yukon 2015 online. But this what General Motors Company released recently.
Last week, was my first time to drive Mercedes Benz SUV cars. Mercedes Benz GL500 2013 was the first SUV Mercedes Benz car I drove in my life. Well my first impression was good, but the vehicle is large for me to drive down the path. Anyway, the GL-Class is full of character and you can see at a glance that it is a sports utility vehicle. It brings together expressive design, a high sense of perceived value, generous spaciousness and excellent ease of operation to form a powerful presence. It is a futuristic interpretation of a modern SUV.
The rear position lamps have remained two-tone (red/light red and red/clear white) and are also two-piece, comprising sidewall and rear door lights.Fibre-optic cable has been used in the taillamp, and LED technology in the indicator.
The new GL will win you over with its spacious, ample interior dimensions, which can be clearly felt even on first getting into the vehicle thanks to the huge legroom, headroom and elbow width available. On all three rows.
Both at the front and the rear, getting into the vehicle is an easy, comfortable process, thanks to the greatest possible door opening angle and generously-sized adjustment ranges for seats and steering wheel. The EASY-ENTRY system on both sides and a high roof edge are features also worthy of mention.
Overall, from my driving experience I don’t find any different from driving with Mercedes Benz SUV’s and saloon cars. The car is perfectly comfortable and built-up with advanced safety technologies. Recommended for families or for dessert trips. I rate the car 06/10.
Mercedes Benz GL500 is available at AbdulRahman AlBisher & Zaid AlKhazemi - Local Mercedes Benz distributor with the price tag starting from KD30,000.
Actually, I was really disappointment and haven’t thought for Nissan as an automobile firm to innovate a smart-watch. This watch is designed for drivers of Nissan Nismo model variants, currently encompassing the 370Z, and GT-R. By using the Bluetooth connection the watch gathers data from the car, including speed, along with efficiency information, such as fuel consumption. Nissan says the telemetry data will show drivers their track performance.
Watchband appears to connect around the wrist in one, solid piece, encasing the actual watch mechanism. That style looks designed to prevent damage. Charged through a Micro-USB port, Nissan says that the battery will last for 7 days.
Still the watch detailed information haven’t disturbed yet, but it will be presented on the upcoming Frankfurt auto show.
Enjoyed test driving the new Chevrolet Impala 2014 offered by AlGhanim Automative Company. I was impressed with the car magnificence exterior design and shape. I can say the Impala is made of superior materials with crafted advanced technology. The car is completely redesigned by Chevrolet. Power-dome hood looks like the Chevrolet Camaro to me and the overall exterior design looks fabulous and totally renovated.
The car I got is full option built-in with high technology and safety features. Such as navigation system, camera, wheel steering full control and more. What I really liked in this car is the comfortability, simplicity and total finishing materials. All of the interior and seats materials are made professionally with exquisite French stitching accentuates the premium textures of soft-touch and leather-appointed surfaces. At night I enjoyed the lovely LED ice-blue ambient lighting.

In general, the test driving experience with Chevrolet Impala 2014, were absolutely comfortable. But their are two points I disliked during driving the car. One of the points is the car not strong enough during driving one high speed. What I mean is the steering wheel is not stable on high speed u-turns. The second point is you can hear the engine noise on high speed also, which can be annoying when you are listening to any audio or calling someone.
Overall the car is superb and recommended for businessmen, small family, men and women. I rate the car 08/10. Chevrolet Impala 2014 is available at Chevrolet exclusive distributor – Yusuf A. AlGhanim & Sons Automotive Group, with the tag price starting from KD8,495.
Many reports came up last year about the luxury cars in London Documentary Film Suffering From Gulf Youth Cars In London and Gulf Cars in London. This video production came up with tons of the luxury expensive cars founded in London streets by Gulf people during summer. Spending these money for showing off is really absurdity to me.
