The smiles of the students’ faces 🙂

During the month of Ramadhan and Syawal, Brunei Shell Marketing Company Sdn Bhd (BSM) and its staff held a donation drive in efforts to put smiles on some 50 selected underprivileged primary school students in Temburong District.

Today, BSM handed over the donations contributed by BSM as well as its management and staff. The contribution included necessities such as school and daily supplies. Present to handover the donations were BSM Managing Director, Pg Shamhary Pg Dato Paduka Hj Mustapha and members of the leadership team.

BSM also took the opportunity to celebrate Aidilftri with the students and their family as well as its stakeholders and business partners. This has been a tradition by BSM since 2014 and these events were made possible by the commitment and partnership between BSM and the Department of School (Cluster 1) under the Ministry of Education as well as Temburong District Office and the Rataie Village Council Consultative under the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The event took place at Mukim Bukok Community Hall in Kampong Rataie, Temburong recently.






Audi A4 Black Edition

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in audi, Social News


The 1.4 Audi A4 Black Edition is available for test drive

Yesterday I had the privilege to have a short test drive of the sportier look of the Audi A4 Sedan Black Edition. Yes, yes. The colour of the Audi that I test drove was in blue but the Black Edition was referring to the new Black styling package where the front radiator grille, the side sill trims, side air inlet and front spoiler and also the sporty rear spoiler are in gloss black finish. It does look slicker in the gloss black finish and matches the royal blue colour of the Audi A4 sedan. Though it’s not an S Line version but you will enjoy the S Line exterior finishing touch to give the 1.4 Audi A4 a sportier feel.

The Audi A4 that I test drove is the 1.4 litre spec. The features inside have been upgraded where you will appreciate the inlays has a piano black finish to give a classier feel. The base features for the A4 already includes such premium equipment such as Drive Select, Virtual Cockpit digital display and Navigation plus with additional Side Assist blind spot detector.

The 1.4 Audi A4 comes with 18” exclusive Audi Sport cast aluminium wheels in 10-y-spoke design in gloss black.

The price is quite reasonable if you ask me. The driving experience, though a short one, is still a great one (Wish I could spend more time with it to get the full experience). Despite being a 1.4 litre engine, the horsepower is 150hp and you can feel the difference when you step on the accelerator.

Do test drive the 1.4 Audi A4 Black Edition and get the feel of it.



A quick test drive on the 1.4 Audi A4 Black Edition but I craved for more

It does look sportier with the gloss black finish on the grille

The sporty rear spoiler is also in gloss black

This is the previous base model of the Audi A4 Sedan. You can tell the difference in the grille and such.

Now the quattro (high spec) version of the Audi A4 Black Edition


This look similar to the 1.4 Audi A4 Black Edition. Just that this is the high spec edition, the quattro Audi A4

If you want much power hungry version of the Black Edition, then you can go for the 45 TFSI Audi A4 Black Edition (quattro). This is the higher spec with a horsepower of 252hp, enhancing the driving experience even more. Unfortunately, no drive test edition for this one.

The pedals and footrest are made of stainless steel. The seats themselves are sporty and in leather. The rims are slightly bigger, 19” exclusive Audi Sport 5-arm-rotor matte titanium look. Let’s not forget, the driver and passenger will enjoy the Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system too.

All Audis in Brunei come with 5-year or 150.000km (whichever comes first) Extended Warranty. Do visit Audi Showroom in Kiarong to find out more. Follow them on @audibrunei on instagram and Facebook too.



Check out the 19” rims complemented by brake callipers in red

In the high spec, you will enjoy the leather finish on the seats

You will get use to the new numbering system by Audi. The 45 stands for a 2.0 litre engine.


In the high spec, you will also enjoy the high quality speakers from Bang & Olufsen
