It's only been a couple a months since Chris Bangle, infamous for designing what everyone dubbed "bangle butt" on the BMW series of vehicles, left the famed German company. Since then Adrian van Hooydonk has been hard at work slimming the profiles and softening up the lines on their cars.

 

A beautiful example of their hard work is in their new 5 Series. The team has kept the looks of the car in-line with their current 3 Series, but predictably stretched, certainly staying true to how they used to be designed back in the days.

I still like the current 5 series. As commented by someone earlier, this new facelift looks like a elongated 3 series but is 50k pricier.

    Mitsubishi Evo 10 performs a timely pop and bang which literally smoked a salty cam car driver

    In the public's eyes, most often confuse/label Japanese sports cars as an 'Ah beng' car or an ordinary car that has been 'zhng-ed'. In Singapore, it is common for these cars to get hated by the public. Here's one such example: What Happened? In a user-submitted video, the driver/passenger of the cam car can be heard making some remarks about the blue Mitsubishi Evolution X in front of it. The remarks included a sarcastic attempt to mimic the Evo X's noise. Moments later, as the Evo X enters an expressway, it performs a quick launch, resulting in pops and bangs. Thick black smoke and flames could also be seen shooting out of its exhaust.  I must say that the 'smokescreen' was a rather timely response to the complaints coming from the cam car.  Illegally Modified? This might be the first question that pops into your mind for the uninitiated. However, the black smoke, flames, pops and bangs produced from the Mitsubishi Evolution X are due to the anti-lag system installed in the car.  Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the Mitsubishi Evolution X was illegally modified. However, there is still a chance that the car is 'illegally modified' if LTA thoroughly inspects the car.  For all you know, it could be labelled as 'illegally modified' due to heavily tinted windows.  Netizens' Comments Must be because cam car's first time experiencing pops and bangs.  NGL, Evo X is a nice car😍 Every day we learn something new.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Toyota Vios accelerates out of a parking lot and crashes into multiple vehicles

    If you are a regular social media user, you would have seen your fair share of weird or unusual vehicle incidents in Singapore. Well, you can add the following incident to that list. Watch it here:  What Happened? The incident occurred in Hong Lim multi-storey carpark. After waiting for a Honda Vezel to reverse park into a handicapped lot, the cam car proceeded to move off.  Just then, a Toyota Vios accelerates out of his parking lot at full speed, without any warning.  The sudden acceleration caused the Toyota driver to lose control, colliding with multiple cars and motorcycles parked opposite it.  Subsequently, the momentum and impact from the initial collision caused the Toyota Vios to crash into another row of parked cars. After the subsequent crash, the Toyota Vios came to a complete halt. Following this, the driver can be seen opening his door before the cam car drives past him. This has got to be what was on the driver's mind. The Aftermath Thankfully, it seems there was no one in the vehicles involved in the collision then, apart from the Toyota driver. Although it is unknown if the Toyota driver was hurt, no one else seems to be hurt from this chaotic incident. Here's to sending the Toyota driver some well-wishes. It is going to be rather traumatic for him.  Netizens' Comments I am not surprised at all. It is Honda HRV or Vezel, not Honda CRV or Bezel 🤦‍♂️ 👀     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Did the taxi uncle angle the rear view mirror to look at his passenger's breasts or is it a misunderstanding?

    Nothing beats heading home after a long day of work.  Unfortunately for this woman who was on her way home from a night shift, she encounters a taxi driver who she accused of looking at her breast through the rear-view mirror. Watch her as she confronts the taxi uncle here: What Happened? A woman accused her taxi driver of looking at her breast through the rear-view mirror, as she could see her chest in the rear-view mirror from her Point of View (POV). This sparked to a confrontation with the taxi uncle to which she asked in an angry manner, "Why you put on my breast?" The accusation continues for quite some time before the taxi uncle re-adjusted the rear-view mirror to face the car's roof.  Despite re-adjusting the mirror, the confrontation continues.  Moments later, the woman abruptly commands the taxi uncle to alight her at a 7-Eleven by the roadside. Before the video ends, the woman was persistently demanding the taxi uncle for his name. Now Here's The Fun Part, Let's Shed Some Facts! The following was the description she provided in her user-submitted content: Two main points question the reliability and authenticity of the woman's recount. Point #1 The woman stated that she was heading home after her night shift, at around 8-ish in the morning.  However, a simple screenshot of the video at 3:04 shows that the taxi's Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) indicates that it was at 6pm. (Refer to the image above) And I am pretty certain that these MDTs are pretty accurate as it serves as a taxi metre to calculate the total trip fare.  Point #2 Initially, the woman stated in her recount that she was heading home after a night shift.  However, at the end of her description, she states that she is an unemployed mother to 4 kids. Contradictory much? All that said, these two points are sufficient for me to doubt the woman's accusations.  What is your opinion on this matter? I would love to hear what you guys think! Netizen's Comments Sadly, the taxi uncle does not teach physics😪 'Troublemaker' is the word you are looking for! Thank goodness she doesn't drive😰      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Watch how this cam car gets scolded for not giving way in the most Singaporean way possible

    They say that Singaporeans have a unique culture and identity, which can be attributed to our variety of local cuisines and our multi-racial society.  I say we are truly unique by the manner we talk.  Watch this video to see the most Singaporean style argument between two motorists: What Happened? This pointless incident occurred at an unknown HDB carpark involving the cam car and a blacked-out van. The cam car was driving towards the end of a one-way direction carpark, where the driver was supposed to give way to oncoming vehicles before "re-entering" the carpark again.  Just as the cam car was about to turn right, a blacked-out van emerged from the carpark entrance. As a result, the cam car performed an e-brake and exclaimed 'SMLJ?' before venting his frustration by honking at the van.  The van driver then proceeded to stop in front of the cam car before opening the driver's side door. The van driver then made a gesture to ask why he was honked. The argument between both parties went as such: NGL, this encounter is about the most Singaporean it will ever get! An Avoidable Exchange TBH, the honking action of the cam car was genuinely uncalled for.  I see it as an intentional provocation to spite the van driver and vent his frustrations after the cam car was forced to give way to the van.  What do you think? Which party do you think is at fault? Netizens' Comments Dude, what have you been smoking when you were typing Point 3 onwards? That stuff is way too strong.
