    Singapore Reckless Drivers Thread VII

    Yup good defensive driving 👍 Travelling on lane 2 will also allow more time to react if really the turning car starts moving, exactly how the video showed

    Nissan new sporty sedan launched

    That's an E-Power Note running on an electric drivetrain. 0-100km/h in around 7.5-8s. Not too bad I would say Nissan E-Power Note 0-100

    If you consider the Mz3 HB had -10k rebate and Civic 1.5T neutral band, they are actually selling at the "same price" 😅 edited : with 60 more horses😉

    Cant judge whether Cam Car turned too fast, but the way he react definitely not defensive driving. By the time he spotted the Mazda he should have release his accelerator and ready to brake. Should have more than enough time for him to stop. Instead he choose to swing left to avoid.

    Yup no doubt the Note going this slow is not ideal, but the cam driver is much more reckless squeezing in , jamming brake (trying to show his displeasure), accelerating heavily and then again cutting in front of the the white van with minimal spacing. Single act with multiple risk of 1. rearing the Nissan Sunny if he suddenly jam brake 2. Rear right fender sideswiping the Nissan Note if he suddenly accelerate 3. Sideswiping the white Hiace Van when he accelerate to move off. All these just to display his unhappiness. 😑

    How problematic is VW's 7 speed DSG?

    Now I know why so many claim Golf 1.4TSI up lorry. Max torque DQ200 only 250NM. Once tuned already

    Moving off the line doesn't feel sluggish at all when i test drove. the small electric motor probably helped abit. At highway speeds that is another consideration

    Yup 10k rebate, the critical factor there. Around 12s to sprint from 0-100 in the hatch for the 1.5NA

    Fine pegged with OMV

    Just stating a fact. Not suggesting anything. 3% to a supercar owner is nothing, but 30% to a B&B car owner is plenty much. And yet you are in the same "queue" in bidding a COE. A supercar might spend most of its time in a sheltered carpark depriving of another B&B owner who actually needs and utilize the car more. But hey our government being a corporation they only care about $$, so who knows they might actually do it. They have 70% of the population "agreeing" with them.

    Cat B COE is a joke. let say 30k COE for a 100k car. Thats 30% of the whole cost. To someone who is buying a million dollar Ferrari that is only 3% of the whole cost.

    D1 Spec Brake Pads - Don't be fooled.

    If stock brake pads can activate ABS, then isn't the tyres the limiting factor instead of the pads? I would think better pads are less susceptible to brake fading? Unless one is hard-braking and going REALLY hard into corners every time i don't see how brake fading comes into play during street driving.

    Honest Review after test driving.. Pros: Everything feels premium, like every other online review had said. The buttons, rotary knobs to the ergonomics is very well designed. Composed and very quiet ride even on 18" Wheels. Even the sound of the indicator, the smallest detail is being paid attention to. One should really go test drive and feel it. Cons: Lack in power? Yes. But surprisingly moving off the line is not sluggish. I guess driving town speeds should be fine, but highway speeds and accelerating to overtake might be struggle. To be fair driving a 1.4T now so honestly is MUCH better than I would have expected. (Total 3 person including me in car) Also the rear is definitely small in size if compared to a Civic. Sitting 3 for long journeys would not be ideal. If one is looking at this Mazda 3 IMO should consider the Elegance Trim. Plenty tech and useful features. Classic too barebone while Astina not worth the 3k upgrade (mainly for the Bose sound system)

    Saw their brochure Elegance trim and above -- kerb weight 1.4tonnes Interesting to see if anyone go for the hatchback with this sort of pricing.

    To me a brand doesn't define premium. Take a look at the KIA Stinger. Premium comes in a whole package and I think the Stinger fits. The thing about this Mazda 3 is they are trying to get B&B consumers buying a "premium" car. The marketing is just wrong. VES rebate of 10k didn't really help either. To be fair the interior and exterior does feel plush. If they really want premium just go all out and get the 2.0L at least. Don't be half-f.
