...going french n italian...merci n grazie

test drive d 308 Turbo. D red unit below is d RM159k 308GT
went French during d day...n go Italian @ nite

It is another 3-day weekend this week courtesy of Thaipusam on Sunday. We test-drove d newly launched Peugeot 308 Turbo at around noon after reading d many positive local reviews on d ride. Personally I think at RM111k, it is d best deal currently based on its level of equipment n safety features. Additionally, d engine is d result of Peugeot n BMW collaboration which was mentioned subtly in d 308 brochure [d same motor is used in Mini Cooper if u must know].

But to bring d price to that low [for a continental car laa], d local dealer made a few changes of course...such as d absence of d projector headlight n d big glass moon roof. Anyway...compared to similarly priced Honda Jazz or even Civic, d 308 should be able to trump them. D same goes for offerings from Nissan n Toyota as well. BTW, if speed is not your thing, then a non-Turbo 308 for less than RM99k might just be your cup of tea. Driving d 308 Turbo was ok but probably I was spoiled by d handling of d Merc. Fuhh...panjang pulak bebelan on this 308 ni.

In d afternoon later, we packed up n shifted to Bt Laut as it has been quite awhile since we were there last. In d evening, we headed to Banting as my MIL is looking for a pair of shoes for her jalan2 trip to KK on Monday. N when we were @ d shoes place...biasa la kan...d kids pun wanted a pair as well...hhmm. N afterward, we just walked few more steps n enjoyed our dinner @ d Hut nearby.
