Some of the readers may recall that I blogged about a Toyota Camry which was parked in such a way that the bonnet was sticking out of its designated parking lot by a fair bit. Recently, I saw a BMW 5 series which was the complete opposite of the Camry

This is what I call a considerate driver . I always did that too.. But base on this photo , it seems to me that the issue lies on the carpark lot. The maroon car next to it was also very near to the wall. I already saw quite a number of inconsistent sizes of the carpart lots..

Everything has been increasing , but service and product quality has decreased . .

Wheel stoppers. The two little "kerbs" per lot that stop your wheels. I park against that when available. New HDB car parks have them now.

5 Series is quite long...I used to drive a E34...first couple of time I park, I will use my wing mirror and the parking lot marking as a guide...you would be surprise if I park until my car nose is in the lot....how freaking close I am to the wall. Some idiot can't park to save their live....I have a Jag at my place who park nose in...but his car is forever at an angle and part of the backside is out of the lot....then there are those who reverse park with half the car sticking outta the lot...I near bang into one Sunny the other day after turning off the ramp...secretly...I was hopping that someone would bang the stupid car.

i will never park my car this way even if my car's front is sticking out of the lot but i'll be sure not to park near the carpark ramps so that it won't cause too much of an obstruction

    Watch how egos got the better of both these cars (Maserati crashed!)

    Not happy with being overtaken or high beamed at? Why not try jamming your brakes so that the car that offended you can crash into you?  That's what this Maserati Quattroporte driver did when the camera car behind beamed him. According SG Road Vigilante's post, the accident happened on the wee hours of 5th of Aug 2020 along Keppel Road. In the video, we can see the camera car trying to overtake both the Mercedes Vito and the Maserati but was blocked a couple of times. Both vehicles were apparently friends or colleagues from the same company and once the Maserati managed to overtake the camera car, the Maserati jammed his brakes suddenly, causing the camera car, which we reckon from that turbo flutter and gearshift, an Audi A4, to crash into it. The Maserati's occupants then came out, demanding the camera car driver to get out and "settle things". After some aggressive exchange of words, the Maserati just drove off as if nothing happened. Weird In our opinion, this is just one side of the story as we have no idea what the camera car driver did to anger the Maserati driver. Accidents like this usually takes two hands to clap. What do you guys reckon? Let us know!

    Buyer goes for a test drive and makes damm well sure the safety features were working!

    Last weekend saw Singapore going into Phase 2, whereby almost every industry could become operational again. With showrooms closed for more than a month since the start of our lockdown, naturally this weekend also saw some decent traffic. Unfortunately, one test drive in particular went bad for this particular Honda shopper at Leng Kee... We don't have details on exactly what happened but it does look like this Red Honda Jazz that was probably going through a test drive, isn't going to be sold as a new car anytime soon. On the bright side, we can be sure that Honda's safety features sure work very well. 

    P.S. We reckon with the upcoming all new Jazz's Honda Sensing safety suite, this accident could have been avoided.

    This is why power is nothing without control

    We always hear the phrase "power is nothing without control"  In this latest blog post, we now can show you exactly what that phrase means. Shared furiously among many Whatapp chats is a video of a recent accident involving a Nissan R35 GT-R losing control in one of the tunnels of the CTE. The matt silver GT-R which does not look stock at all, should be producing quite a bit more than the stock 480bhp (an remap will easily bring the power figures near 600bhp). It can be seen barreling along the tunnel on 11 July 2020 at quite a high speed before losing it all and smashing into the rear of a Mercedes-Benz CLS350.  What did you think made the driver lose control of his AWD GT-R? Could it be a case of malfunction on the car that caused the car to go bonkers? Let us in the comment box!

    Two jokers trick the internet into thinking their Fiat Doblo did 200km/h

    In case you're wondering what a Fiat Doblo looks like. It's a goods vehicle. Why is this information important for this story? Take a look at this latest viral video But, I don’t understand Malay! Don't worry! We translated the whole conversation for you thanks to my malay colleagues!  Sounds similar? I think they made this video in response to another video of two guys doing 180km/hr on the expressway in a Suzuki Swift Sport. We wrote an article about that just yesterday btw (blatant backlinking opportunities should not be wasted). You may click the link below to check the story out. https://www.mycarforum.com/blogs/entry/6008-someone-is-keen-to-show-that-their-swift-sport-can-do-180kmh-on-the-cte/ On top of that, the person who uploaded the video included this in the caption It's a good laugh If you didn't realise, they weren't actually speeding. The speedometer of the vehicle seems to be faulty, and these two funny guys thought that they could have a bit of fun with it. The driver's laughter made me lol more than once. That’s for sure. Don't need call polis please and thank you!
