We thought things like this only happens in the movies but as it turns out, there are people doing this in real life as well!

As seen on a Facebook post by SG Road Vigilante, the owner of this red 7-seater BMW 216D Grand Tourer wrote in to the page claiming that another BMW 2 Series in a similar shade of red has been using their number plate, chalking up fines they were not responsible for.

However, this red 2 Series is a 5-seater variant that is called the Active Tourer and it looks largely similar as you can see from the screenshots taken from BMW Singapore's website.

Reproduced below is an extract from the rightful owner of the plate SGX821M that was in SGRV's post.

 

Hi, I was notified that you posted a video back in July on a speeding car with my license plate #SGX821M. I would like to highlight that THAT is not my car. Someone is impersonating us using our license plate.

I drive a 7 seater BMW 2 series while the car in the video was a 5 seater 2 series.

We were issued fines that we are not responsible for. AND my husband literally drove past the idiot this morning bearing our license plate while we were dropping our kids off to school. We couldn’t give chase because we were on opposite sides of the road.

I have lodged a police report and have notified the LTA. We are awaiting investigations.

If you happen to see the car, please help update the police on its whereabouts.

Check out the video of the imposter who was also featured on SGRV before.

This idiot thinks he is smart. He has under estimated the record with LTA.

Singapore laws rarely come down hard on identity thefts.

Is the driver caught yet? See what I mean.

    sgCarMart goes live with Volkswagen!

    Volkswagen is a brand that has undergone immense change in the past year alone, and its new identity is manifest in its new logo that embraces a new digital age.

    So being as curious as we are, we naturally decided to head down to the local Volkswagen showroom at 247 Alexandra Road to host a Facebook livestream for our second E-markdown, as well as to see what's up from a brand that is at the forefront of the many changes occurring through the industry. Thankfully, you now don't even have to bother with putting on a mask or dealing with check-ins to get your hands on the latest deals from Volkswagen Singapore, thanks to our live Facebook event, which allows you to shop for your favourite cars, and ask questions about them, from the comfort of your own home!

    You can catch the livestream, or any other future ones for that matter, simply by checking in or following sgCarMart's Facebook page! Regular MCF members would have also noticed the thread about upcoming sgCarMart and MyCarForum events on the Lite & EZ section, while Facebook users can easily register their interest for the event on sgCarMart and Volkswagen Singapore's Facebook page to get a notification when the stream goes live.

    Make sure you do not miss on any of our livestream events in the future! The duo that you'll recognise from our video reviews first introduced the Volkswagen Tiguan R-line. The SUV got to show off its many convenience features live on Facebook, from its unique cupholder design to its generous rear legroom and electric tailgate, features which are sure to impress anyone!

    To those that are still uninitiated, the R-line cars gives customers the option of adding a little sporty flavour courtesy of the Volkswagen R performance division, which is responsible for the firm's blistering performance products such as the Volkswagen Golf R. 

    So in the Tiguan R-line you get added goodies such as the sports steering wheel, R-line exclusive front scuff plate, and the R-Line exterior styling package, allowing you to deck your SUV with a sportier look if desired.

    Those that commented with their most creative explaination as to they would buy a Tiguan while the car was presented also got a chance to win a $20 shopping voucher! And before we moved onto the second featured car, a brief introduction was also delivered for Volkswagen's new logo, which has been redesigned to be more modern and refined. Want to learn more? The full livestream is still available for those that missed it, so even those that missed it can still learn more about the brand here.

    And onto the Volkswagen Golf, our presenters both agreed on how ubiquitous the Golf is, making it a car that suits anyone, regardless of age or job!

    As with the Tiguan, those that commented with creative comments on why they would buy a Golf stood a chance to win their $20 shopping vouchers as well!

    At the end of the evening, three lucky winners were also picked as part of a lucky draw from all those that simply typed 'Volkswagen' into the chat and walked away with $100 worth of petrol vouchers! Then you've come to exactly the right place. Over the weekend of the livestream, all viewers had to to do was to key in the promo code 'ILOVESGCM' when shopping at Volkswagen's online store and they would have been able to redeem a $500 petrol voucher and a $500 shopping voucher when you put in your refundable deposit for a car.

    Viewers of the livestream also got to shop for both cars at livestream exclusive prices, with the Tiguan Highline starting at $154,900, and the R-line SUV for just $139,900! (List prices at $139,900 and $175,900 respectively).

    Those more interested in the Volkswagen Golf also got to enjoy massive discounts, with prices slashed to $107,900 for the Golf R-Line ComfortLine, and to $119,900 for the Golf R-Line HighLine! (List prices for both variants are $131,400 and $148,900 respectively).

    Even if you've missed the deals offered through the weekend, the online store prices are still as attractive as it gets, so why not hurry over to Volkswagen's online store to see what deals are still available to you, or better yet, head down to Volkswagen's showroom at 247 Alexandra Road to see the rest of Volkswagen Singapore's full range of cars yourself!

    Watch how egos got the better of both these cars (Maserati crashed!)

    Not happy with being overtaken or high beamed at? Why not try jamming your brakes so that the car that offended you can crash into you?  That's what this Maserati Quattroporte driver did when the camera car behind beamed him. According SG Road Vigilante's post, the accident happened on the wee hours of 5th of Aug 2020 along Keppel Road. In the video, we can see the camera car trying to overtake both the Mercedes Vito and the Maserati but was blocked a couple of times. Both vehicles were apparently friends or colleagues from the same company and once the Maserati managed to overtake the camera car, the Maserati jammed his brakes suddenly, causing the camera car, which we reckon from that turbo flutter and gearshift, an Audi A4, to crash into it. The Maserati's occupants then came out, demanding the camera car driver to get out and "settle things". After some aggressive exchange of words, the Maserati just drove off as if nothing happened. Weird In our opinion, this is just one side of the story as we have no idea what the camera car driver did to anger the Maserati driver. Accidents like this usually takes two hands to clap. What do you guys reckon? Let us know!

    Van lands in the bushes thanks to street racers

    Nothing new here. This is just another case of street racers causing trouble to the general road users. Shared among group chats in Whatsapp is a series of videos that show a Volkswagen Golf GTI mk5 owner being bombarded with hokkien vulgarities. No, we won't be translating what those words mean in case you are wondering... After some digging, we found out that the GTI driver who was being shouted at, and a Mitsubishi Evo X were zipping left and right through traffic along CTE on 9 Jul 2020 before causing a Toyota Hiace to crash and flip sideways into the bushes at the left side of the highway. We could see that the GTI sustained some damage to its front left hence the driver stopped. We assumed the Evo X driver did not stop and continued on its way.   This is not the first time the GTI owner has been caught driving recklessly as you can see from the video above by ROADS.sg. Of course neitzens on facebook are bashing the reckless drivers as we can see from Thelocalsociety's FB page. What are your thoughts on such drivers? Let us know!

    Traffic dispute convinces many that cyclists are getting out of hand

    Are cyclists getting out of hand these days?  We'd say so as more and more videos of cyclists ignoring traffic rules and getting angry with other road users have been surfacing. It doesn't help as COVID has encouraged more people to workout, with cycling fast becoming one of the more popular choices/excuses to get out of the house. According to SG Road Vigilante, this incident between 2 cyclists and the camera car happened on 30th August 2020 at 17:15 along east coast road. As the road is a single lane road, SGRV claims that the camera car wanted to overtake and horned at the cyclists that he/she is proceeding with an overtaking maneuver. Unfortunately, the cyclist wasn't happy and started some 'ah-beng taunting' actions. Do you think the cyclists in the videos are self-entitled? Or do you reckon the driver should have just queued up and drove slowly behind them? Let us know!
