The 2014 Mercedes Benz C250 Coupe

 Last week I had the pleasure of trying the 2014 C250 Coupe from Mercedes Benz, an elegant luxurious Coupe with enough power under its hood to keep you happy. 

Mercedes Benz C 250 Coupe

The particular one I had, was equipped with sexy AMG rims and high profile tyres, as well as a Panoramic Sunroof and DRLs. Quite sharp exterior and its front end makes the car look even more aggressive.

The rear, looks similar to any C-Class from Mercedes Benz, its when you look at it’s side profile that you notice the beauty of not having a second door on the side!

The door is not too long like what you would have with many coupes, and provides ample space if you will be sitting in the back area.

Driving the C-Coupe was a new experience for me, the turbo charged 1.8L 4 Cylinder engine was able to sufficiently power the car, although it takes 7.0 Seconds to get from 1 to 100 km/h, once you’re moving you utilize the turbos and the car literally flies, the only downside is that it feels like its needs a small push at 0 Km/h and there’s a slight lag in accelerating from a stop (even with Eco mode off – since engine shuts off in Eco mode)! Took it on to quite an empty road, and loved every bit of the journey!

The AC was cold, cold enough that I caught a cold afterwords lol. Taking photos in the heat of day and jumping into the C-Coupe to cool off had its toll on me, but was worth it!

The driving experience was beautiful!

The Interior was spacious and electronics bucket-like seats were very comfortable both for the driver and passengers, the console was easy to navigate through, and the HUD was also clear in day and night. Although a little plain, it had everything you might need and the AC vents gave good cooling to the passenger and the driver. 

Just remembered the Trunk area!

Could comfortably fit a travel bag and other gear along side, very spacious!

The starting price for this beauty is 15,500 KWD. Available at Mercedes Benz Kuwait (Contact Details in Read More)

Formula 1 Race car burns out Kuwait`s Gulfstreet!

Redbull Racing 68.jpg

In fact this weekend we’re not the only ones between a car and a hot place. While we’re sweating, Infiniti Redbull Live Demo Team and Carlos Sainz Jr have been giving the RB7 another canter, this time around the fabulous Kuwait Towers in Kuwait City, Kuwait.

Redbull Racing 16.jpg

Carlos got the crowd of 20,000 jumping with a tyre-smoking repertoire of donuts, burn-out and speed runs around the famous landmark.

“Today has been a great day, I really enjoyed my time,” said a beaming Carlos, who this year will be contesting the World Series by Renault FR3.5 Championship for the DAMS team in the seat vacated by the F1-bound Kevin Magnussen. “Every single run was special. We made the engine roar and burned some rubber which made fans extremely happy. Thank you Kuwait for this great experience and I hope to come back one day.”

As with all the Live Demo team’s street runs, the event was entirely free to attend and also included entertainment from Abdo Feghali, the Middle East Hill Climb champion and holder of the Guinness World Record for the longest drift, who pulled out all the stops drifting his Nissan 370Z in ways that frankly defy explanation. And for those who prefer two wheels, four-time World Stunt Riding Champion Chris Pfeiffer deployed his full range of tricks.

We’ll be off on our own Middle East adventure next weekend as we go to the Gulf for the Bahrain Grand Prix – though by then the Live Demo team will have laid rubber and headed out for who knows where…

Special Thanks for Yousef Amin and Faisal AlSabti from Kuwait Hummer Team for helping me taking the pictures.

Pamper Your Ride with @washtime_kw

A few days ago I decided to try out a car cleaning company that’s been around for almost 2 years now. They use the latest cleaning compounds and chemicals as well as really looking into the quality of the work they are providing. They have a mobile van that comes to your home and cleans your car on your door step, without you having to take your car anywhere.

WashtimeLogo.jpg

 

They were very prompt in timing and took almost 5 hrs 30 mins to complete my car which for me was too long, but also made me re-assured that they wont try to cramp everything in a short 2 hour session. 

 

Here are a Series of Before and After Shots I took when they worked on My FJ cruiser.

Giving the Latest Blackberry Z30 a Shot!

I have the full conviction that nothing beats Blackberry Handsets when it comes to the area of a Business Phone. Email, Email, Email, both my iPhone and Samsung put me in a tight situation when emails were delayed or sometimes never arrived until I refreshed, attachments were a disaster to view and sometimes never open up. 

Unfortunately the Z10 wasn’t a great success in the ME region, due to the fact that it lacked the support of major app players in the market such as native whatsapp and Instagram, and that just pushed people away from it big time!

Email support was great, the keyboard was great, we covered the launch event last year in Dubai (click here for post), If only Blackberry waited full app support from Instagram, whatsapp it would’ve been a great success. 

The Z30, another story, a great device with such great potential but killed due to the Changes and the political situation with Blackberry. The processor was just right, the screen size a great 5.5″ Super Amoled display, 2GB of RAM, 16 GB internal storage space and support of up to a 64 GB MicroSD card, the camera 8 MP, and the carbon fiber back cover gives you that unique luxurious feel to the handset. The main advantage to it now is that Android APK’s can now be installed on the BB, therefore getting all those apps that you are used to using on all your Android handsets.

The 10-Port Charge Everything Charger

I’ve tried all sorts of chargers for my Gadgets, but finally settled on something very basic yet more comfortable to use than any other charger I’ve used so far. 

The 10-Port USB charger, I found this while browsing around at blink.com.kw, I bought one for 7.5 KD, and then chose to buy another 2 one for home and the other for my home office. 

  • I currently have I-Dapt chargers everywhere, but they lack in 2 major areas : 
  • I have the i-dapt – 3 which has two top sockets and one USB cable entry – Which means you’re limited to the amount of devices you can charge simultaneously. 

To put your device on charge, means you can’t use it while it is charging and its sometimes difficult to install your phone on the adapter (especially MicroUSB sockets), and even more when its next to you on the night stand and you can’t see because its dark!

Having socket USB chargers work fine, but then again your phone will be further away from you and you wont be able to comfortably use it, with the 10-port charger, you simply have that near you and then you can charge all your gadgets and have them all charge at the same time, not sacrificing one on another!

The 10-port charger from blink, has 8 USB 1 Amp Chargers and 2 2.1 Amp chargers (for Ipads and large tablets). 

What more can you ask for ? It also has very clear indicator lights to show that everything is running smooth, would be nice if the indicator would tell you if your device is fully charged or not! I’ve been using it for a week now and I couldn’t be happier, I don’t need to sacrifice a device from charging I can charge them all, and leave the i-dapt if I ran out of charging cables .

The only downside is that you need cables and in an office environment, charging cables can go missing pretty fast!

10 port carger 10Pport1

Even better, the price dropped from 7.5 to 3.7 KD! why wait when you can buuuuuuuy ! 

:D
