The Skoda Superb Laurin & Klement, a truly superb choice of car

The Skoda Superb Laurin & Klement, a truly superb choice of car

For this video review, it's the Skoda Superb Laurin & Klement!

In case you don't already know, Laurin & Klement are the surnames of Skoda's founders, and the brand pays homage to them by labelling the top specification of certain models with Laurin & Klement, to reflect the slightly special status of that particular car being the top trim level. And Idris will be showing you how superb the Skoda Superb is.

And yes, if the words Skoda Superb ring a bell....

If there's one thing Skoda has really gotten right these past few years, it's how increasingly handsome their cars have become. To this writer, the attractiveness of the front fascia is balanced and not all in your face "look at me, I'm handsome". There's a certain amount of restraint and this writer certainly appreciates it.

And like mentioned above, any Skoda with the Laurin & Klement badge is the top trim level of that particular Skoda model.

Yes, it's pronounced "schko-da", not "sko-da"

For a car in its class, the Superb really has a superb amount of boot space, 625 litres worth. That should be more than enough for an extended run to the supermarket with a detour for even more shopping.Screen-Shot-2021-01-13-at-5_29.38-PM-1024.thumb.jpg.183be015f1cb757bf7dda9db168749b3.jpg

At Idris' height, look at the amount of legroom he still has. That really is generous.

Trickling down from the higher echelon brands in the Volkswagen Audi Group, the virtual cockpit, which initially debuted in Audi models, has now made its way to Skoda.

In case anyone is wondering, Julian is the editor of sgCarMart. And this writer agrees with him, ventilated seats are very nice indeed. There is just something so pleasing about having cold air blown at your back and backside while you sit, and getting out of the car without a slightly sweaty back. Especially in our climate, ventilated seats are a must. Pity not many cars have them still.

And yes, Idris has said it. Want to find out more? Watch the full video to find out all Idris has to say about the Skoda Superb!

    Is the Audi RS5 Sportback a match for its rivals?

    Looking for a German performance sedan? The Audi RS5 offers plenty of performance with 444bhp and 600Nm of torque. And boy is Idris excited to get behind the wheel in this video review! Wouldn't we all? And as you would expect from a Sportback from Audi, it is quite the looker as well. But this RS5 comes with plenty of practical features as well. Despite offering so much performance, there's space for our usual luggage test in the boot! And being a four-door, you'd expect sufficient space for your passengers as well, and the RS5 delivers. Unfortunately it looks like that touchscreen is a bit of a stretch away when you're seated at the front... And how does it drive? Very impressively it seems! Watch the full video to see and hear more of the Audi RS5 on the road!  You'll want to!

    Man jailed and banned from driving because of a stomachache

    TL;DR – A man has been jailed for seven weeks and slapped with a four-year driving ban for speeding, running two red lights, driving against traffic and failing to stop for traffic police. In his defence, he had a stomachache and needed to use the toilet. The next time you’re driving on the roads and ‘kena’ the-mother-of-all-stomachaches, the urge to floor the accelerator will naturally creep into your mind. But don’t do it. Just don’t. Video from SG Road Vigilante YouTube Traffic police chase a man with irritable bowel syndrome This incident occurred sometime in March 2019 in the wee hours of the morning. A man left the Marina Bay Sands Casino and drove towards his home in Jurong. He experienced a stomachache and went up to speeds of 180km/hr (while literally trying to keep his S#$% together) A traffic police officer spotted him after exiting the PIE towards Jurong Canal Drive and gave chase, but the man did not stop for them.   What other crap did he do? Pun intended. He ran two red lights and drove against traffic… twice. When the traffic police managed to pull him over, he had already crapped his pants. The police had to line the back seat of the police car with a plastic sheet before he was allowed to ride in it.   The punishment He has pleaded guilty to one charge of rash driving and failing to stop for a police officer. He will have to serve a seven-week jail term and a four-year-long driving ban. He will begin his jail-term on the 27th of January 2021 and is currently out on $15,000 bail.   Some interesting comments I mean, if you’re that desperate, anything is possible. Can you imagine the conversation in the cell? Cellmate: “Bro, what they catch you for?” Man: “Lao Sai” It sounds like you’ll suffer the next day.   Source - Today Singapore

    Food delivery rider goes ballistic and launches a verbal tirade at security officers

    Another day, another, uh, video that showcases the ugly side of Singapore. Welcome to 2021, people. 2020 was less than a pleasant year, so this writer is sure most people would like to leave all that unhappiness behind and start the year on a fresh note, without conflict, anger, agony, and just general headache. Basically, take a chill pill. Unfortunately, we have here one of our first candidates for idiot of the year, 2021 edition. My friend, it is not even the end of the first week of January, and you are already causing such a ruckus over a matter so trivial? Please, do everyone a favour, go back to 2020 and stay there. The matter seems to have risen from the security guards requesting the food delivery rider to park his bike at a less disruptive or perhaps more agreeable place, with the location of the incident being the Marina One building at Straits View. By now, it should be more or less known that the security guards at buildings in the CBD can be a little more stringent than their counterparts in other parts of Singapore. But ultimately, they're at the bottom of the food chain, having to enforce the instructions that have been laid out to them. But still, a little give and take is usually enough for everyone to settle on an amicable solution should one need to stop their vehicle at one of these buildings in the CBD. Talking nicely to everyone helps, too. Well, this guy obviously did not get the memo. Not only was his tone extremely aggressive, he continually raised his voice at the security officers who were trying their best to keep their cool and maintain the situation the best they could. But oh no, Mr Polite was having none of it. If this writer were to reproduce some of the words and phrases shouted out by the raging delivery guy, well, this writer would be in a world of trouble, and then some. Simply put, the security guards were trying to deescalate the situation, calm everyone down, let life move on. But no, Mr Angry just kept shouting, and shouting, and shouting, even at one point disparaging one of the security guard's educational qualifications. Perhaps Mr Angry should look back at what he learnt in driving school, because he continually insists that he is allowed to park on the double yellow line and that "with LTA, there is a grace period of 10 minutes".  My friend, if you bothered to do a simple Google search of "double yellow line Singapore", one of the first results to pop up is from the LTA site OneMotoring with photographic instructions about how there should be "no parking on this side of the road at all times, except for immediate pick-up and drop-off only". I do want to know where angry delivery rider got his information about LTA giving 10 minutes grace because I have never heard of such a grace period. Perhaps angry delivery guy is smoking something real good and distorting all the facts and information of daily life around him. To this writer, the more the delivery guy rages, the deeper the hole of stupidity he digs for himself. But yes, the security guards could have been a little more understanding, perhaps, but if you, rage monster, didn't raise your voice at them and started filming them with your phone, this matter could have been resolved a lot more amicably. This writer also wonders if the angry delivery rider has read the comments, because the comments are all bashing him and his behaviour.  And lastly, at the end of the video, the security guards say "thank you", turn their backs and start walking away. Basically, they are disengaging from the situation because talking to stupid people is obviously tiring. But no, Mr Angry still wants the last word, and starts gesticulating with his hand in various "kung fu" hand positions and continues his verbal tirade. It's a good thing the guards don't bother responding. My friend, this writer advises you to get therapy, because it seems like you need it. Or if that doesn't work, a long walk off a very short pier. 😏

    Driver forgets there's a bicycle on his car, gets stuck at MCP entrance

    Watch this video posted by Singapore incidents, and you find this Skoda Kodiaq who is ferrying his prized offroad bicycle on top of his roof rack got stuck in the carpark gantry in Midview City at Sin Ming. So here's my suggestion for the forgetful driver. 1) Use a rear bicycle mount. Just remember to go to your nearest accessories shop to get an extra car plate to hang after you mount your bicycle. 2) Get air suspension for your ride     MCFers remember your car surrounding when you are driving to avoid an awkward situation like this!
