If you think your loud-sounding car is safe from the authorities just because you stay in a private property, you might want to think twice now.

A photo of a Ferrari 488 GTB being inspected inside someone's front yard has been circulating around in most car group chats over the last weekend.

From what we understand, it is almost unheard of for LTA enforcement officers to venture into a non-public area to inspect a car that might be flouting the laws. While we are unsure of the reasons while this particular Ferrari is being looked at, we reckon the reason might be neighbours who are unhappy about the loud exhaust noises emitting from the car.

On a side note, those who are in the know will wonder why the officer is looking under the car when its belly is all covered up...

Check out what neitzens on SG Road Vigilante have to say about this. Let us know if you agree!

Lesson learnt. 

Don't buy loud car. 

Actually, if the car is legal then the LTA can't do anything about it. 

But the owner can give the bao toh kia neighbour a real "treat" for the next few days/weeks/months/years with a nice exhibition of how loud a legal exhaust on a supercar can be. 

I would. Petty? IDGAF. 😂

This is what happens when people cannot be civil and approach others in person to make polite requests and insist on underhandedly and sneakily siccing the authorities on them. At that point, once "blood has been drawn", it's gloves off and even polite requests won't do crap. And CCTVs can easily be installed to deter any petty acts of vandalism in retribution. But it would be sweet to get that guy in trouble for that too, if he decides to take matters into his own hands. 

Of course, all this presupposes legality. Otherwise, no leg to stand on, legally speaking. But that is why I take pains to make sure I remain legal. Legal can still be damn loud, depending on the car.

(As I mentioned in the main forum thread, I am blessed to live in a neighbourhood where neighbours are not only tolerant for the most part, but actually have supercars of their own, so we're all in the same boat). 

Oh and the legal question of whether or not LTA can be refused entry into private property is still open. Good to have an answer on this. They can camp outside and wait for the car to enter public road, for all I care.

Unfortunately, the civil service only acts on complaints which explains why the overall standards are often so low. I won't be too quick to praise them for acting on complaints.

    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!

    Should these people be charged for using these parking lots as well?

    Now this is an interesting sight.

    As we have mentioned before in previous blog posts, the COVD-19 pandemic has somewhat influenced many who are forced to stay home to start working out as an excuse to head out. Hence, when we went into Phrase 2, there was a noticeable increase in traffic at our parks as many still continued to enjoy exercising, leading to some to come up with new ideas to move away from the overcrowding in parks. Check out this clip which has been shared by SG Road Vigilante, whereby the camera car chanced upon this public outdoor carpark at Fort Canning on the 9th of September which has been 'converted' into an outdoor gym. With the carpark almost full, we bet the sight of those using the carpark as a workout area annoyed the camera car driver. What do you guys reckon? Cool or not cool? Let us know!

    Accord driver goes bersek and lets camera car rear end him

    After watching this clip that was spotted on SG Road Vigilante, we can't help but see the importance of being able keep our own temper in control. Losing one's temper is easy and when not kept in check, you might end up doing something you will regret in the future. Shot on the evening of 26th of September 2020 along Central Blvd, a Honda Accord can be seen in the video cutting in from the left of the camera car at high speed before slamming onto its brakes real hard. The camera car, which itself seems to be going along at quite some speed, could not stop in time and crashed into the Accord as the result. While no one can confirm the Accord driver's intention, it is almost safe to say that he just wanted to let the camera knock into him by braking hard to a stop for no reason. As it was a slight bump, no one was hurt. The Accord driver then got out calmly and proceed to take some photos. So guys, what do you reckon? Is this part of a road rage incident which the camera car's footage did not show? Or is it an insurance scam? Or is it a combination of both? Let us know in the comments below!

    Law-breaking cyclists get into chain collision!

    We wonder if these group of cyclists are aware that the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing when they ride in such a large group.. Posted by the people from SG Road Vigilante on 7th of Aug 2020 is a video of a large group of cyclist riding together seriously before a crash causes a chain collision of bicycles. Some of us might find the accident funny while some would be shocked at how dangerous riding on the road could be. We just hope that everyone recovers well from their fall. Of course, such a post will put netizens into a commenting frenzy where everyone will be slamming the cyclists for road-hogging and riding in a group of more than five.  Do you feel that these large gatherings should be stopped? Or do you feel that more and more cyclists are taking advantage of our roads? Let us know...
