blogentry-133713-0-76399100-1528365175_thumb.jpgWhen the entry-level Model 3's order books opened in April 2016, many Tesla fans went and put deposits for for the all-electric car. However, many have given up since up.

 

With the production issues affecting delivery times, data published by Second Measure asserts that as of the end of April, 23 percent of all Model 3 deposits in the United States had been recalled. For those who are wondering what Second Measure is, it is an analytic tool that takes credit card transactions and analyses them so investors can see where consumers are voting with their dollars before a company’s quarterly earnings come out.

 

As reported by Carscoops, the data also revealed that 18 percent of all Model 3 refunds happened in April, the same month when Elon Musk said the sedan would be delayed between six to nine months.

 

In response to the articles posted online,Tesla claims that the figures published by Second Measure are not in line with its own figures. However, he chose not to mention how many orders had been cancelled.

    Is this a good way to make a small bike look bigger?

    Spotted on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page is this amusing photo of a motorbike's number plate. According to them, this was taken on 1st of July 2020 at Bukit Batok West Edge and the bike in question is a Yamaha Aerox. We have no idea why would someone flout the law to do this. To improve aerodynamics? To make the bike look bigger than it is? Or to make it harder to be identifed by the Traffic Police's camera and Traffic Police wannabes on SG Road Vigilante? What do you all think?

    This is not how you keep your distance from others on the road

    We know that all of us should be keeping a safe distance from each other in such times. But we reckon these guys that have been caught on video might have taken it abit too far. This video, as posted by SG Road Vigilante, shows a slow moving camera car (claimed to be doing 80km/h but it looks more like 60km/h to us) that was traveling on KPE towards TPE chancing upon a bunch or cars that were abit too keen to distance themselves from any traffic around them. Apparently this happened on the wee hours of 16th May morning and from what we can gather, the lead car is a R34 Nissan Skyline that zoomed past the camera car at a speed that seemed to double the legal speed limit of the KPE.  Its hard to tell from the video but other than the Skyline, we could also identify a few other cars including a Suzuki Swift, a Volkswagen Golf, a Volkswagen Jetta (that might have been the same guy that was charged for organising illegal street racing), a Mitsubishi Evo 9 and a couple of Honda Civics. Interestingly, most of the comments were attacking the camera car for being slow. We wonder why. On the other hand, there will always be keyboard warriors that come out with weird and silly comments like the example below... 95563179_890011821514718_986642270115562833_n.mp4

    This i30 driver reckons he is one of Osaka's street racers!

    This video has gone viral among the car enthusiasts community in Singapore.  A white Hyundai i30 has been filmed by the camera car's passenger showing the Korean car cutting across lanes recklessly with signaling along the SLE. Obviously trying to taunt or block the camera car (an Audi), we have no idea what is the story behind this incident as the video does not come with any audio. The video lasts for 30 seconds and could well have been going on for sometime. We hope nothing bad comes out of this road rage incident. P.S. Dear Hyundai driver, maybe you should watch less video clips on Youtube about Osaka's infamous street racers... ef6b0a0d-6339-4962-9dda-e287bb98811c.MP4

    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.
