blogentry-133713-0-20021200-1536377465_thumb.jpgWant to keep your classic car looking period correct but still want to have some modern functionality? Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) can help.

 

Newly-launched, the Classic Infotainment System comes in a few variants. If you have a Jaguar XJ40, XJS or a XJ Series 3 sedan, you can get the system in chrome or black finish faceplate and is designed to fit in the DIN-1 compartment.

In fact, other makes and models might also be able to use the system with some custom work done.

It also comes with Bluetooth, an incorporated microphone and DAB/DAB+ digital radio capabilities.

 

Prices for Classic Infotainment System starts from around S$2,200

    Construction on Jurong Region Line to start next year

    Construction works for five stations on the new Jurong Region Line (JRL) are expected to start next year and slated for completion in 2026. The five stations are Choa Chu Kang, Choa Chu Kang West, Tengah, Hong Kah and Corporation, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said yesterday. The authority has awarded two contracts worth $739.5 million to construct the five MRT stations. The stations will form part of JRL, Singapore's seventh MRT line, which is set to open in three stages from 2026. Comprising 24 stations, the line was announced last year to improve connectivity in the Jurong area, with the aim of boosting the area's transformation into a second Central Business District.

    The 'Teh Tarik' or Plastic Bag Hook as standard equipment

    The cabin of the cars we drive are something that needs lots of thought during the design stage. It is quite necessary as this is the place that most of us spend during commutes. It is also the space where we use to carry our carry items like our shopping and small goods, if we are too lazy to pop the boot that is. The cabin is also the space where we put our take-away meals and drinks. We have our cup holders for our Starbucks coffee and other storage space to carry those burger boxes too.   However, in Asia, especially this region we carry our food and drinks in the ubiquitous transparent plastic bags tied with a plastic string (very plastic indeed). These bags do not come with a flat base for putting them flat and if you fill it up with our local favourite, the 'teh tarik' (something loosely translated to pulled tea or milk tea) then you need someplace to hook it.   These days most cars do not have the pop up door locks as it is safely located at the door handles instead of up where the door sills are. And you cannot use the coat hook that is usually located at the grab handles near the roof of the car. Imagine hanging a plastic bag filled with hot tea up there. What you need is a proper hook located somewhere where it is easy to reach and safe to carry the hot the tarik bags.   Some cars like the Malaysian Proton Exora MPV and some variants of the Perodua Myvi come with these hooks standard. The Proton Exora has one up front on the dashboard too (the main picture above). Proton even acknowledges this as the 'teh tarik hook' as quoted by a veteran Malaysian journalist. Volkswagen has this as an option to be used for those with the car's head rest supports, which is quite forward thinking for a European brand in order to cater to local markets.   While you can buy these 'teh tarik hooks' really cheap at any car accessory shop, I think these hooks should be made standard on all cars sold in South East Asia. Manufacturers, do take note. -Proton Exora seat hook - VW snakey option

    Fuel shortage in North Korea

    As things get a little heated up between North Korea and the United States, drivers in North Korea are feeling the effects with fuel shortage.   According to The Washington Post, drivers in the Pyongyang, the capital of the country, have been hit by fuel rationing as petrol stations have began closing down while those that have petrol have long queues in them.   It is reported that one Pyongyang gas station was even limiting sales to diplomats and international organizations.   Petrol prices have been reported to have risen by double to around $2 per litre.   It is speculated that China has cut fuel supply to North Korea as United States President Donald Trump has been pushing China to exert pressure on North Korea's Kim Jong-un in an effort to get him to abandon his country's nuclear weapons program.
