blogentry-133713-0-49064800-1517564244_thumb.jpgPorsche has created a video explaining why some of its cars are producing brake squeal when driving in normal conditions.

 

While there are no official word on why they produced such a video, it is safe to guess that some of their customers have complained that they are experiencing such a 'problem' and Porsche wants to assure them that it is not an issue.

 

We don't blame the customers though as it is ingrained in every driver’s mind after their first few years behind the wheel of a car that once their brakes screech, it's time to get them sorted out. So to get such squealing noises when their cars are new can be abit annoying considering how much Porsches cost.

 

For those who want to know why high-performance brakes squeal when coming to a stop at low speeds, watch the video below and let the gurus at Porsche explain.

    Is the Audi RS5 Sportback a match for its rivals?

    Looking for a German performance sedan? The Audi RS5 offers plenty of performance with 444bhp and 600Nm of torque. And boy is Idris excited to get behind the wheel in this video review! Wouldn't we all? And as you would expect from a Sportback from Audi, it is quite the looker as well. But this RS5 comes with plenty of practical features as well. Despite offering so much performance, there's space for our usual luggage test in the boot! And being a four-door, you'd expect sufficient space for your passengers as well, and the RS5 delivers. Unfortunately it looks like that touchscreen is a bit of a stretch away when you're seated at the front... And how does it drive? Very impressively it seems! Watch the full video to see and hear more of the Audi RS5 on the road!  You'll want to!

    Mercedes C-Class hogs sheltered driveway while it rains, lady in car behind explodes

    Today on "Things you thought would happen but instead went differently", we have here 2 cars who both want to drop off and or pick up their passengers at some condominium. As some context to the title, the video was taken on 10 January 2021, and the weather has been pretty cool these past few days, slightly chilly even. So you might think the weather would perhaps let people have a bit more "chill" in their daily outlook on life too.   Oh, you naïve thing, you.    If there is one thing we can always count on, is that Singaporeans can almost always be counted on the overreact, grumble and whine about incidents that are perhaps inconsequential to most of us but of utter and outright importance to these snowflakes. So yes, the Mercedes is hogging the pick up/drop off point. Maybe the car behind the Mercedes did try to gain the attention of the Merc's occupants, but the occupants in the Mercedes perhaps didn't realise it. Either way, lady, do you really need to jump out of your car like your seat is on fire, brandishing your phone to record the offending party's "transgressions"? If you listen to the video clearly, the way the lady slams her door with such conviction like she's on a warpath while taking the video makes this writer feel like she's taking this issue a little too seriously. That said, the Mercedes isn't completely innocent either. Yes, we all know that you are waiting for someone to arrive before you go. But if the driveway only has so much space, just make a loop so you don't obstruct the car behind you. Let's be a little more gracious. No one likes getting wet unnecessarily, we all know that, but people don't exactly enjoy being delayed either. Give and take, live and let learn, you scratch my back I scratch yours, do you see where this is going? Also, lady in the Mercedes, your sarcastic tone does you absolutely no favours. Driving one loop to let others alight first burns a lot of petrol, is it. If you can afford a late-generation Merc, don't say you can't afford the cost of petrol.    As Mahatma Gandhi once said, "To lose patience is to lose the battle"   But to the lady who is recording this whole thing. Just, uh, wow. Very mature response there, auntie. Perhaps try talking nicely to people in the future if you want something, even if you are extremely irritated. It also helps if you don't actively try to film the whole incident down like some wannabe paparazzi. People don't like having cameras thrust into their faces without rhyme or reason. If the shoe was on the other foot, how would that make you feel? Also, auntie, please don't go and knock a car that isn't yours (1:28 in the video), people really don't like that. Don't cause more trouble than what you need for yourself because you never know how it could come back to bite you. It's incidents like this that makes this writer believe that no one actually remembers Singa the Courtesy Lion or the message he was trying to push.  Come on people, everything Singa stood for is literally in his name. It can't get any clearer than that. No wonder Singa quit, because no matter how hard he tried, perhaps he just could never get across to the kind of people in the video above 🤷‍♂️. Just chill, everyone. 2020 didn't kill us, and 2021 just started. A little patience never killed anyone. And also it is a little too premature in the year for over-the-top nonsense so let's all just try to get along for now. For now.

    Man jailed and banned from driving because of a stomachache

    TL;DR – A man has been jailed for seven weeks and slapped with a four-year driving ban for speeding, running two red lights, driving against traffic and failing to stop for traffic police. In his defence, he had a stomachache and needed to use the toilet. The next time you’re driving on the roads and ‘kena’ the-mother-of-all-stomachaches, the urge to floor the accelerator will naturally creep into your mind. But don’t do it. Just don’t. Video from SG Road Vigilante YouTube Traffic police chase a man with irritable bowel syndrome This incident occurred sometime in March 2019 in the wee hours of the morning. A man left the Marina Bay Sands Casino and drove towards his home in Jurong. He experienced a stomachache and went up to speeds of 180km/hr (while literally trying to keep his S#$% together) A traffic police officer spotted him after exiting the PIE towards Jurong Canal Drive and gave chase, but the man did not stop for them.   What other crap did he do? Pun intended. He ran two red lights and drove against traffic… twice. When the traffic police managed to pull him over, he had already crapped his pants. The police had to line the back seat of the police car with a plastic sheet before he was allowed to ride in it.   The punishment He has pleaded guilty to one charge of rash driving and failing to stop for a police officer. He will have to serve a seven-week jail term and a four-year-long driving ban. He will begin his jail-term on the 27th of January 2021 and is currently out on $15,000 bail.   Some interesting comments I mean, if you’re that desperate, anything is possible. Can you imagine the conversation in the cell? Cellmate: “Bro, what they catch you for?” Man: “Lao Sai” It sounds like you’ll suffer the next day.   Source - Today Singapore

    Food delivery rider goes ballistic and launches a verbal tirade at security officers

    Another day, another, uh, video that showcases the ugly side of Singapore. Welcome to 2021, people. 2020 was less than a pleasant year, so this writer is sure most people would like to leave all that unhappiness behind and start the year on a fresh note, without conflict, anger, agony, and just general headache. Basically, take a chill pill. Unfortunately, we have here one of our first candidates for idiot of the year, 2021 edition. My friend, it is not even the end of the first week of January, and you are already causing such a ruckus over a matter so trivial? Please, do everyone a favour, go back to 2020 and stay there. The matter seems to have risen from the security guards requesting the food delivery rider to park his bike at a less disruptive or perhaps more agreeable place, with the location of the incident being the Marina One building at Straits View. By now, it should be more or less known that the security guards at buildings in the CBD can be a little more stringent than their counterparts in other parts of Singapore. But ultimately, they're at the bottom of the food chain, having to enforce the instructions that have been laid out to them. But still, a little give and take is usually enough for everyone to settle on an amicable solution should one need to stop their vehicle at one of these buildings in the CBD. Talking nicely to everyone helps, too. Well, this guy obviously did not get the memo. Not only was his tone extremely aggressive, he continually raised his voice at the security officers who were trying their best to keep their cool and maintain the situation the best they could. But oh no, Mr Polite was having none of it. If this writer were to reproduce some of the words and phrases shouted out by the raging delivery guy, well, this writer would be in a world of trouble, and then some. Simply put, the security guards were trying to deescalate the situation, calm everyone down, let life move on. But no, Mr Angry just kept shouting, and shouting, and shouting, even at one point disparaging one of the security guard's educational qualifications. Perhaps Mr Angry should look back at what he learnt in driving school, because he continually insists that he is allowed to park on the double yellow line and that "with LTA, there is a grace period of 10 minutes".  My friend, if you bothered to do a simple Google search of "double yellow line Singapore", one of the first results to pop up is from the LTA site OneMotoring with photographic instructions about how there should be "no parking on this side of the road at all times, except for immediate pick-up and drop-off only". I do want to know where angry delivery rider got his information about LTA giving 10 minutes grace because I have never heard of such a grace period. Perhaps angry delivery guy is smoking something real good and distorting all the facts and information of daily life around him. To this writer, the more the delivery guy rages, the deeper the hole of stupidity he digs for himself. But yes, the security guards could have been a little more understanding, perhaps, but if you, rage monster, didn't raise your voice at them and started filming them with your phone, this matter could have been resolved a lot more amicably. This writer also wonders if the angry delivery rider has read the comments, because the comments are all bashing him and his behaviour.  And lastly, at the end of the video, the security guards say "thank you", turn their backs and start walking away. Basically, they are disengaging from the situation because talking to stupid people is obviously tiring. But no, Mr Angry still wants the last word, and starts gesticulating with his hand in various "kung fu" hand positions and continues his verbal tirade. It's a good thing the guards don't bother responding. My friend, this writer advises you to get therapy, because it seems like you need it. Or if that doesn't work, a long walk off a very short pier. 😏
