Raunchy couple breaking in the suspension of the new VW Golf at MCP

TL;DR – A couple gets videoed getting extremely intimate in the new Volkswagen Golf at a multi-storey carpark. They should honestly get a room.   Video footage of a couple getting hot and steamy at a multi-storey carpark surfaced earlier today (3rd August 2021). Here’s the video for your viewing pleasure. Update: SGRV has removed the video from their FB page But, we've got you fam. Here's a GIF     Isn’t that the new Volkswagen Golf? It d

Cyclist thinks protective gear makes him invincible, bus shows him otherwise

It is always good practice to wear protective gear whenever you are cycling. However, being decked out in protective gear doesn't grant you superpowers or special protection against other road users/vehicles. Watch this short clip and find out what I mean: This incident occurred at a junction along Hougang Avenue 9. A blatant disregard for traffic law The traffic lights were green, which permitted the cam car and Bus 109 (travelling in the opposite direction)

Watch how this Honda Shuttle beat a red light, without actually beating one

What do you do when you are rushing for time (for whatever reason), and the odds are stacked against you? Watch how this Honda Shuttle "skips" a red light by taking a shortcut: What happened? This incident took place along Corporation Road, at the junction of Yung Sheng Road.  In the dashcam footage, a red Honda Shuttle is seen driving aggressively behind the cam car. Moments later, as the Honda Shuttle approaches the red traffic light, he slows down abruptly.

$500,000 GTR with $4000+ worth of parking fines tries to escape $6.52 parking fee

TL:DR – The title says it all. The owner claims that he ended up paying the $6.52 in the end, and the accumulated fines were due to the inability to navigate slopes at the MSCP because of the GTR’s lowered stance.   When you drive an eye-catching car like a Nissan GTR, you’d better be on your best behaviour on the roads. There are digital eyes everywhere! Trying to escape paying carpark fees is not an example of ‘best behaviour’. Here’s the video for a weekend laugh.

Man prowls entire carpark and did extensive research on kerb weights after being denied season parking

That's a really long wall of text, so I'll sum it up for you. The owner of a 2011 Mercedes Viano was denied a HDB Multi-Storey Car Park season parking with the main reason being the excessive weight (more than 2,000kg) of the vehicle.   So what does he do? He proceeded to spend some time checking out the various cars parked in HDB MSCP and came up with a short list of cars that weigh more than 2,000kg. If you look at this excerpt from HDB's website regarding the pa

Mazda 3 driver fails to stop at stop line and pretends to be Singapore’s most courteous driver

TL;DR – Mazda 3 driver exits a carpark, does not stop at the stop line and almost collides with cam car. The driver then proceeds to wave his hands to “give way” to the cam car. Whut?   This incident happened on the 17th of August 2021, Tuesday @ 11.15pm A Mazda 3 driver exiting the Sengkang General Hospital carpark failed to stop at the stop line which almost led to a collision with the cam car that was travelling on the road perpendicular to the Mazda 3.

Childish Shariot driver thinks out of the box on how to manage his anger after vehicle cuts into his lane

TL;DR – A Honda Shuttle makes a super-illegal left turn to block the path of cam car at a slip road. The cam car had initially cut into the Honda Shuttle’s lane and the Shuttle driver was having none of it.   If someone cuts into your lane abruptly, how would you react? Whack that high beam? Sound the horn? Curse the other driver in the comfort of your car and forget about it in five minutes? That’s what I would do. But, in this latest 3-minute video, we have a

Subaru-powered turbodiesel-electric hybrid Army vehicle

The US Army is currently testing a prototype all-purpose vehicle powered by a Subaru turbodiesel-electric hybrid drivetrain. Called the ULV (Ultra Light Vehicle), it is meant to replace the HUMVEE.   Commissioned by the Secretary of Defense and developed by the US Army's TARDEC (Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center), the ULV addresses some of the HUMVEE's shortcomings and serve as the next generation of go-anywhere military truck.   Unlike the HUMVEE's V8, the ULV's

Dumb YP with no driving license, argues about road regulations

An entitled YP passenger of an idle Renault Megane Diesel got into a heated debate with an uncle when he was told to turn off the engine. Here's the video for your reference: According to the Facebook post, a man was sitting at a coffee shop when he noticed the parked Renault Megane Diesel had its engine on for more than 15 minutes. This led him to approach the passenger, telling him to turn the engine off while waiting in the car. However, the man was met with host

Second Opinion - The Toyota Corolla Altis 1.6 and its rivals

Toyota recently launched their 11th generation Corolla Altis and it is a pretty well-resolved car. Since this 1.6-litre sedan category is such a hotly-contested segment, we thought it would be nice to have a second opinion of the Corolla Altis comparing with some of its closest rivals…   Kia Forte K3 1.6 First up, our recent Sedan of the Year winner, the Forte K3. Despite being launched last year, the car still looks pretty darn fresh. No surprises given that the Koreans have been producing

This Hiace driver is a hero Singapore did not ask for but definitely a hero we need on our roads

Not all heroes wear capes; some of them drive a Toyota Hiace. In this video, a cam car and a silver Hiace were waiting to turn right at a junction. As the green signal came on, both vehicles started to make their turns. A silver Prius suddenly charges straight through the junction out of the blue, clearly ignoring the red light signal on the road.  The front of the van almost swipes the side of the car as it rushes past both vehicles. Unimpressed

Renault Megane RS tries to outrun a Mercedes-Benz GLA45 and fails

TL;DR – A Megane RS shows us how its 6-speed manual transmission can't outshift the GLA45s' 7-speed DCT transmission   A user-uploaded video on Complaint Singapore features a Megane RS and a GLA45s drag racing from one traffic light to the next. Here's the video for reference:     Where? The 22-second video takes place in the CBD area of Singapore, along Central Blvd. It's not a Hyundai The caption of the video states that the car racing t

Oil change scams, sounds familiar?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-avpx8UTakIHave you ever visited a workshop just for a normal service or oil change, and ended up spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars? Can you trust someone else to take care of your car?   These guys went undercover to investigate, and revealed being ripped off at a popular oil-change chain. They are going in for the advertised US$19.99 oil change, but wait till you see the charges all 3 of them ended up paying. And was the work even done? Watch the

TRD releases customisation options for Toyota C-HR

The dust for Toyota's new small crossover has barely settled but Toyota Racing Development (TRD) already has some upgrades for it.     Starting with the aesthetics, TRD has split its lineup into two separate collections, namely the Aggressive Style or the the Extreme Style. To put it simply, road warriors will want the Aggressive Style, where the car will be dressed up to look more erm, aggressive. The full set of bodykit includes new front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and a small

Singapore’s very own version of Street Fighter: Bonus stage level

If you’re familiar with the bonus stages in Street Fighter 2, you’ll remember whacking the crap out of a car to get additional points for a high score. We have a Singapore version But unlike Ryu and Ken, this guy uses a motorcycle helmet on a taxi. Here’s the video. The incident happened at Keat Hong Close, Bukit Batok, Singapore. And another angle Why so triggered Based on the video, it’s unclear why the 90s Ah Beng look alike got so h

Do you need to warm up your car before driving?

We are sure most of us have been told by 'automotive experts' that one should always wait for the car to be warmed up before driving off. Is it true?   According to Jason Fenske from his YouTube 'Engineering Explained' channel, cars with electronic fuel injection do not need to be warmed up before lightly driving off. This is because almost every vehicle built over the last quarter of century has fuel injection, which in turn compensates for the temperature changes as the car gets warmed up.

More photos of Audi R8 V10 Plus

The Audi R8 V10 Plus. What a memorable experience. Not having driven a supercar before, I was intimidated by its width at first but soon enough, i gained confidence and boy oh boy, it was a lovely drive. This is definitely ranked pretty high up there as one of my all time favourite drives. I say so because I found myself missing that V10 note, the very responsive gearbox, the security of the quattro system and yes.. did i already mention the V10 note?   Anyway, here are some unpublished photos

Leicester City players awarded a BMW i8 each

Leicester City players were awarded by their chairman with a brand new BMW i8 each after their historic English Premier League win a few months ago.   According to Carscoops, the club's chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha is said to have forked out almost S$2.70 million to buy 19 BMW i8s. Not that the chairman's wallet would hurt, as he is worth more than S$4 billion. Four players from the he championship squad didn't receive an i8 as one of them has moved to Chelsea while the three others were

This SMRT Bus has a new proximity sensor - a honking Mitsubishi Eclipse

A bus driver fails to stay in his lane and swipes the side of a Mitsubishi Eclipse. The video starts with the cam car approaching a traffic junction as he drives down MacPherson road.  The driver promptly stops right behind a green SMRT bus in the middle lane. On the right lane, a red Mitsubishi Eclipse patiently waits for the green arrow indicator to light up. As the light turns green, both the bus and Eclipse start to move forward into the junction. The

Understanding Singapore's COE system

Certificates of Entitlement (COEs) give Singaporeans the right to own a vehicle. COEs are integral to the Vehicle Quota System (VQS), a landmark scheme implemented to regulate the growth of vehicle population in Singapore which, due to land space, is unsurprisingly among the densest in the world.   The VQS determines the exact number of vehicles allowed on the road. Other measures to curb vehicle growth like raising taxes and fees do not have the advantage of knowing the exact increase needed

Good afternoon Singapore! If you’re in a van and fancy a quickie, maybe go to the back of the van first?

TL:DR – A man and a woman engage in an act that requires head bobbing (and tissue) in the driver seat of a van. In broad daylight. For the whole world to see.   Remember that whole incident about the couple testing the Volkwagen Golf suspension last year? We have a new 2022 version with a different couple, different vehicle but not as vigorous compared to last year’s incident. Watch the 34-second video here   Skills +10000?
