MyCarForum member 'therock' shared with us this week his latest adventure all the way from the U.S.A's Pacific West Coast!

With plenty of B-roads to savour, amazing sights to take in and jolly good food to boot, what more could you ask from a driving holiday?

Here's what I think is the best part of the thread: The drive was done in the popular Toyota C-HR, what a madman! In his own words, therock "wanted to try a car which (he) might consider buying and (he) wanted an SUV so it came down to the RAV4 or the C-HR depending what was available."

Thankfully, the U.S-spec C-HR comes as a 2.0-litre which we imagine must be way better for chewing through those long distances than the local 1.2-litre spec car.

Talking about chewing... the thread has plenty of glorious food porn as well. Cause you know, AMERICA!

    Watch this Alfa Romeo flip along Havelock road after hitting a tree!

    A video from @SG Road Vigilante has been circulating showing an Alfa Romeo hitting the road kerb before lurching to the right and flipping over!   The incident happened along the long stretch of road before the State Courts and the Ministry of Manpower. The car suffered extensive damage throughout this incident. Credits: Mothership It is definitely a well-loved car, with one sgCarMart consumer reviewer, Michaelkoh, describing the car as something, "Under the radar gem. (With) Striking design and styling without the excessive price tag. Definitely a top consideration for those looking for cars in the $100-120k range." After searching on our sgCarMart used car section, we found that there isn't any current pre-owned Giuletta in the market. If you guys are looking out for an Alfa Romeo Giulietta for your next ride, please keep a lookout for one with an uneven sloping roof and perhaps tyres that are painted with "POTENZA" in white.

    An embarrassment to all Mercedes-Benz Drivers, worldwide

    A video of an aggressive Mercedes-Benz driver (who does not react well to being honked at) has gone viral. The video was uploaded on SG Road Vigilante’s YouTube channel and has since gained over 10,000 views in a single day! Here’s the video courtesy of SG Road Vigilante Using the powers of inference The video of the dashcam footage has little to no audio, but it’s pretty clear what’s happening if you use your inference skills. Image by SG Road Vigilante YouTube Channel The Mercedes-Benz C-Class feels like his lane is too slow for his liking and wants to switch lane loyalties. If you notice carefully, he starts his lane change before signalling. Image by SG Road Vigilante YouTube Channel Dashcam driver CLEARLY speeds up when he realises what’s happening and when he does not manage to prevent the C-Class from cutting into his lane, he jams on the brakes and the horn which is super uncalled for and childish. EGO, so much EGO! Does the C-Class driver let this go? Of course not! Men and their ego right? (the writer is a dude too, so it’s not sexist) Image by SG Road Vigilante YouTube Channel Mr C-Class then pokes his head out all angry like with accompanying hand gestures. He then puts his car to a complete stop on a two-lane road to get out of his vehicle to show his displeasure and holding up traffic behind dashcam driver. Image by SG Road Vigilante YouTube Channel He approaches the dashcam driver and disappears from the screen completely for a couple of seconds before heading back into his C-Class. Image by SG Road Vigilante YouTube Channel Thought that was all? Nope. He comes back with his mobile phone this time to take a video of the dashcam driver. Towards the end of the video, you can see part of a video of dashcam driver’s mobile phone. Bro, what are you doing? The kicker comes when C-Class decides to make some derogatory sign to the dashcam driver. Like, what’s the point here? Here’s what he did. You decide. Image by SG Road Vigilante YouTube Channel Want to know what this sign is? Here you go courtesy of Urban Dictionary. Does this mean the dashcam driver was a girl? If it was directed to a guy, that’s just…. weird AF! Even so, this is so uncalled for and rude and vulgar. When you buy a Mercedes-Benz If you drive a Mercedes, you’re telling people some basic information about yourself – You’re used to a certain standard of living, you like to stand out and show that you’ve got class and that you’re a confident and independent individual.   Mr C-Class’ actions show us that instead, he’s a childish and petty person who would be better off walking from point A to point B. Dashcam driver, you’re no better for antagonising  Mr C-Class. Here’s what the people have to say Image by SG Road Vigilante Facebook Page Pretty much split. Image by SG Road Vigilante Facebook Page So wise.

    A woman being a PUBIC nuisance on Middle Road. No, that's not a typo

    You probably have seen a video that went viral recently about a woman removing her clothes in anger on Middle Road. She even went as far as pulling down her panties! If you haven’t, here’s the video courtesy of Roads.sg In the video, you can see a woman taking off her clothes in response to a man (a cab driver) walking away from her. She is believed to have done this to play the victim card and make false accusations that the cab driver was the one who did it to her. Crucial eye witness account An eye witness of the incident posted the video on Roads.sg According to the witness, he saw the lady kicking the cab. She then began chasing the cab driver, scratching, punching and going all bat shit crazy. The driver did not retaliate to her provocation. So what triggered this? There have been no reports (as of yet) as to what led to this behaviour, but theories are being thrown around on social media. Even I would be offended. At least give me $10 What happened in the end In a recent STOMP article posted earlier today, it’s been confirmed that the lady, a 31-year old woman was arrested for PUBLIC nuisance. Yeap, I spelt that one right. You can read the full article here

    This might be a good way to get a new car for free?

    Spotted on the facebook page 'private hire sg cars/partners - grab, gojek, ryde, tada etc', someone posted a photo of a fender bender between a BMW and a Toyota and we were shocked by how much you can claim if you were involved in such a accident. This should not cost too much to repair right? Oh wait till you see the final amount submitted by the surveyor. Yup, you saw it right. The cost of repairs on the BMW E60 5 Series would amount to a staggering $88,000.  To put that into perspective, you can buy yourself a similar BMW coupled with a new 10-year COE and lots of change left for petrol and parking. Others on the post agreed too that this is one really over inflated amount. That said, there were some who thought that the is not the actual amount that was asked for...  Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on who's point of view, that is the discharge voucher which you could say is going to be the actual amount paid out. Of course quite a few felt that this is wrong... Let us know what you readers think of this in the comments below! UPDATE: There are some rumors that the discharge form was meant for a Lamborghini Gallardo and not the two cars as pictured above. ----------------------------------------------- Want to know if there are any more BMW 5 Series you could buy with $88,000, check out our used car pages! -----------------------------------------------
