The event featured a presentation by sgCarMart Senior Automotive Journalist Nigel Yong, who shared about his own personal experience as a Volkswagen owner, from ownership to the servicing experience at Volkswagen Centre Singapore. MCF members were given a tour of Volkswagen Centre Singapore's facilities, and got a chance to experience and understand better Volkswagen's range of models in Singapore.


Along with test driving the various Volkswagen models, there was also a lucky draw, with prizes such as exclusive official Volkswagen merchandise, as well as the grand prize of the 3D2N test drive of the Volkswagen Tiguan.









Participants got a chance to check out the latest Volkswagen models before the programme started.

So did anyone pop the hard question? Likely not. Same like Singapore. Controlled and tight lip.

    BMW Alpina B5: Comfortable Cruiser

    Who says performance cars need to come with a sporty ride? Last week we tested the BMW Alpina B5 to see if Alpina's take on the performance saloon is a viable alternative to the BMW M5. So what sets this Alpina apart? Firstly, the interior has received a host of luxurious touches to set it apart from the regular 5-series: The digital dashboard in the B5 has its own Alpina-specific design and colour scheme, for example, while the handcrafted Alpina steering wheel is made of Lavalina leather (the same leather used in Rolls-Royce cars), and features blue/green stitching. But what truly sets this car apart from the rest of the performance saloon pack is what is underneath you: With a suspension designed to deliver comfort and refinement in spades, the Alpina is not just comfortable, but sublimely comfortable. Adding to the comfortable cruise is the fact that the B5 is joyously easy-going to drive, with the lightest of pressure on the accelerator sending the car wafting rapidly down the road. With the abundance of humps and rumble strips on our local roads, would Alpina's take on the performance saloon, with its effortless and classy character, be a better suit for your everyday commute?

    China's Elevated Bus might be a scam

    China Xinhua News has reported that the Transit Elevated Bus (TEB), born to help China deal with its huge traffic problems, is a scam.   Dubbed the "straddling bus", it recently started trial runs in Qinhuangdao, a city located in the north-east of China. Jinchuang Corp, the company which built the bus, created many questions which they could not answer.   One of the main downfalls of the bus was it did not simulate real traffic conditions, as the TEB traveled only about 300 metres, without mimicking real-life traffic conditions. More shockingly, the authorities in Qinhuangdao city weren’t even aware of this trial.   The height of the vehicles that can go under it was also a limiting factor as only vehicles measuring 2.1 metres in height could pass through while the height limit for vehicles on the road in China is 4.2 metres.   To add on to the problem, Shanghaiist wrote that a few media outlets claim that the bus is a fraudulent peer to peer (P2P) investment project aimed at scamming investors. Many government departments have refused to acknowledge their relationship with the project, including the municipal development and reform commission in Qinhuangdao and Shanghai Jiaotong University.



    Toyota transmission plant to resume output after Hokkaido earthquake

    Toyota said on Monday its transmission factory in northern Japan was preparing to resume production some time during the night shift, after a powerful quake halted work last week.   The shutdown of the transmissions factory in Tomakomai on the island of Hokkaido halted production at 16 of Toyota's 18 domestic assembly plants on Monday. Toyota said it would decide in the next few hours on production plans for Tuesday.   The 6.7-magnitude quake in Hokkaido last Thursday killed dozens of people and temporarily cut off power on the island. Power was restored to Toyota's transmissions plant on Saturday and production facilities are being checked for a restart, Toyota said.
