24th May 2009, Sunday -- NBT (Brunei) Sendirian Berhad held The Lexus IS300 Show at their Lexus showroom today, from 2.oopm to 5.30pm. As a fan of Lexus car especially the IS model, I made my time to come to have a look at the newly face-lifted car.

p/s: The list price is about BND73,532. The selling price is a lot less than this. So, it will cost about BND1000 per month (based on 7 years monthly instalment). Though Lexus IS300 is my favourite car, it is still my dream car i.e a car that I can not afford.

Perhaps, VW Golf GTI will suit my budget. VW Golf GTI (Mark V) only costs a little more than BND50,000. However, VW Golf GTI is also still my dream car status NOT my wishlist status. And I am not easy with the single reverse lamp of the VW Golf GTI has (other cars have two reverse lamps). Why?
