    BMW Z4 as decoration?

    I think it is pretty cool to use an old car for decoration. 😍 Thoughts on this?
  3. Lo and behold! sgCarMart kickstarted its very own SGCARMART REVIEWS on the 3rd of November with the new Mercedes-Benz CLA with Julian from the Editorial Department (some of you may find him familiar from MCF events) and cool kid James from Marketing. We're now on episode 2 with the Skoda Octavia RS 245! We're still new at this so don't forget to show some love! Like, subscribe and leave your comments on our Youtube channel! Let them know what cars you want them to review next. 💟
  4. This is probably one of the most luxuriously decorated bus stops in Singapore. The video showcases a bus stop decorated with potted plants, statues of white elephants and, get this, a yellow BMW Z4 Roadster. Yep, you read that right – a yellow BMW Z4 Roadster just sitting there as part of the decor. I don’t even know where to begin. Whose car does this belong to? Why is it just sitting there? Does LTA know about this? How did the owner come about with this idea? Where exactly is this BMW located? Sitting at 3 Chin Bee Avenue, the yellow car decoration is thought to belong to the company P’art 1 Design. According to the company’s social media pages, it is responsible for providing display lights for different festivals and events throughout Singapore. This includes the Hari Raya light display at Geylang Serai, the Deepavali light display at Little India and Christmas displays for malls. While this Google Street view screengrab did not feature the BMW (as it is taken in July 2020), the white elephant statues indicate that this is the exact location that is featured on the viral video. Netizens’ reactions Honestly, as long as it’s legally okay for the owner to place his vehicle there, I don’t see the harm in using this car as décor. It's obvious that it's not in use anymore and it certainly brings more vibrance and life to the area by being a cool statement piece. -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  5. Look very sleek and just like a mini 7 series, minus the controversial monster size grille.. The car's shark-like front nose appears to be sitting lower compared to the current model to lend the 5 Series an angrier look without the odd split headlights of the next 7 Series, X7 facelift, and X8 / XM. A subtle spoiler integrated into the trunk lid can be seen as well, while the dashboard appears to be fully camouflaged. It's likely a sign the cabin will be completely revamped, possibly by adopting the dual-screen setup with a 12.3-inch driver's display and a 14.9-inch infotainment as seen in the iX and i4 electric models running on iDrive 8.

  8. Hey guys, i'm contemplating whether to renew one of my company's BMW 523i F10 Highline. Below are some of the mods/upgrade i'm intending to do if i eventually get the car. Assuming the car is in 100% stock condition, i'd like some advice on the dos & don't from fellow tiong chia hia dis. 19" M sports Rims (What is the best tyre profile?) Shock Absorbers/Suspensions LCI Headlights ( The squarish headlights instead of the stock round ones.) Keyless Entry + Electronic Push Button (Not sure whether it comes with it?) M Sports Steering Wheel Chip tuning (Increase Torque/Bhp. Understand from some friends need to change Air Intake or something like that.) Quad Exhaust (LTA Friendly?) Interior change to Maroon (Any Idea where can find for this 10 Year Old Bimmer) Brembo Brake Kit (No idea what is 4 pot or 6 pot and which is sufficient) Key FOB (Any idea if can use the latest gen G Series Keys to Sync on an F10 Key?) Upgrade on display I'm also intending to do my own servicing + changing of filters. Need some advice on the type of EO and Filters for better performance.

    All BMW owner thread

    Hi everyone, I'm starting a thread for all BMW owner. So we can share everything inside here. I'm currently driving G30, cheers and have a great weekend!
  12. When you are driving/riding and someone is in your path, you give way or slow down right? Well...not for this guy. Watch this 10-second clip to see his hazardous riding: The incident took place along Sims Avenue. Cam bike's intentions backfired The cam bike submitted the video above, intending to shame the elderly pedestrian for jaywalking. However, things took a turn when netizens started calling out the cam bike for his dangerous behaviour, and some even roasted him. What happened? The cam bike rode along Sims Avenue at a relatively fast speed (compared to the other vehicles around him). After he rode past a lorry, an elderly pedestrian in striped clothing can be seen crossing the road from afar. But instead of giving way to the jaywalker, the cam bike rode extremely close to him ON PURPOSE and gave the uncle a rude hand gesture. Netizens' comments Self-owned, nuff said. Motorists like the cam biker should go to hell. Straight-up facts. It doesn't hurt for cam bike to slow down or give way to the elderly pedestrian. Also, can you imagine how shook the uncle was at that point in time? If it were me, I might have to change my underwear. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  13. Here's a rare occurrence - A BMW driver actually using his signal when changing lanes! Maybe it's because of who's behind him? Watch the full video below to find out more! The incident took place along Paya Lebar Road, at the junction of Arumugam Road, before Caltex station. A rare occurrence A BMW 116i can be seen in the video, using his signal lights, and changing lanes from lane 2 to lane 4 to turn into Caltex. However, behind the BMW is not just one, BUT THREE TP ON THEIR BIKES. NGL, but the sight of TP bikes on the road somehow cause anxiety to road users (Touch your heart, don't say they don't). Definitely a head-turner As the BMW hatchback changes lanes, honking from disgruntled road users can be heard. You can see all three TP officers staring and observing the BMW. Luckily for that BMW driver, he wasn't stopped by any of the TP for his actions. It must have been one stressful drive. Wouldn't want to be in his shoes. Netizens' comments LMAO NGL the BMW driver is either ignorant or not experienced enough to "chu pattern" in front of three TP behind him. 100% Agree, being gracious and courteous goes a long way. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  14. Volkswagen, BMW fined $1 billion for colluding to make dirtier cars. https://www.theverge.com/2021/7/8/22568356/volkswagen-bmw-daimler-emissions-cartel-fine-audi-porsche-eu "Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler spent years illegally colluding to slow the deployment of cleaner emissions technology, says the European Union, which is dishing out fines as a result.... ...The scheme described by EU authorities is separate from the Volkswagen Group’s massive Dieselgate scandal, in which the company installed software on its diesel vehicles that helped fool environmental regulators into believing they were compliant, when in reality, they were polluting far more than the legal limit. Dieselgate ultimately led to nearly $40 billion in fines, buybacks, and legal fees for the Volkswagen Group. Daimler also installed software on some of its diesel vehicles to cheat emissions tests and has paid billions of dollars in fines. BMW was careful to point out Thursday that, unlike the other companies it was caught colluding with, it had not cheated emissions testing."

Jaguar E pace 2. Bmw f10 3. Merc w221 is there any other model that have this same annoying fan sound?

  18. Here's footage of a camcar unleashing his fury onto a probationary BMW driver after he was recklessly cut off while making a left turn. According to the video, the incident occurred on Saturday night (July 10) at Bugis (Middle Road) in the wee hours of the morning. The video starts with both vehicles turning left, with the camcar being in the middle lane and the BMW being on the extreme left road. As the camcar turned, I noticed that his vehicle had eaten into the left lane, which elicited a honk from the BMW driver. After the camcar had adjusted back to his lane, the BMW suddenly switched into the middle lane recklessly, which angered the driver and led him to hit the horn. The bulk of the video comprised the haughty exchange between both drivers. The camcar driver was verbally bashing the BMW driver for his turning technique, and the BMW driver defending his actions. Even though it was wrong for the BMW driver to perform that reckless lane change in a fit of rage, the camcar driver was not entirely in the clear as he did not correctly turn into his lane at the start. Netizens’ reactions The internet was divided on this issue, with a majority asking for the camcar driver to share more footage from the incident. A few bashed the BMW driver for his recklessness. . . while a small minority focused on the cyclist on the right, who appeared not to be wearing a helmet and was on the wrong side of the road. TBH, all of this could have been avoided if both drivers would chill and talk things through properly. Also, with a P-plate, the BMW driver should have known better than purposely creating trouble on the road. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    BMW CE 04 Electric Scooter

    Source: https://uncrate.com/bmw-ce-04-electric-scooter/ BMW's futuristic CE 04 electric scooter is no longer a concept — it will enter production in early 2022. Nearly unchanged from the concept, the CE 04 sports the same forward-looking design and a 42 horsepower electric drivetrain. Made for urban commuting, the CE 04 will have stability and traction control, antilock brakes, and a top speed of about 75 MPH. Range is estimated at 81 miles. A 10.25-inch TFT screen offers navigation and smartphone connectivity, along with a vented USB-C charging compartment specifically for your phone. Expect the CE 04 to arrive at dealers in mid-2022.
  21. hi all. I'm looking to buy a COE car. my budget is $40 to $45. I don't mind getting a car with a few years COE left and then renew it for another 5 or 10 years depending on the durability of the car etc. I was hoping to get advice as to which car I should purchase and what should I be wary of. If you were me, which of these 5 cars would you consider buying. If you have a preference out of these 5 cars I've listed below, please also state what changes I need to do to the car and the rough pricing for them at the workshop. If you feel that there is another COE car either Audi, BMW or Lexus on sgcarmart that I should look at instead, please provide the link. I am open to suggestions. Thank you all. 1) Audi A4 2.0A TFSI (COE till 10/2024) https://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=914799 2) Audi A3 Sedan 1.4A TFSI Ambiente https://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=933358 3) Lexus IS250 https://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=940232&DL=1000 4) BMW 3 Series 320i (COE till 12/2023) https://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=936256&DL=2349 5) BMW 5 Series 523i XL (COE till 10/2022) @$29,999 https://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=942128&DL=3804 @RogerNg_185295 @Victor68 @MarkHotchner @Qaz20 @bearbearbear @No_worries @Hamburger @Blueray @Samlimlp @Rickster @CloudWan @Passion @M3ngl4ng @inlinesix @Bjory @Fatfatpanda @littlecar @kobayashiGT

    [Spyshots] 2022 / 2023 BMW X8

    This Coupe styled SUV is suppose to be even larger than the X7, and come with an unusual tailpipe layout... The first sighting of the sports activity vehicle to slot above the BMW X7 happened last year, basically confirming that the biggest of the X models is indeed coming. However, Bavaria hasn't confirmed its arrival yet nor has it confirmed that it will indeed be called the X8. Expected to become the new flagship BMW SUV, the prototype here was spotted at the Nurburgring. Despite the bevy of claddings and concealment to hide its design, there are several cues here that tell us that this isn't the facelifted version of the X7 that we saw recently. The front looks flatter than the X7, while the bonnet has prominent lines and the lower intakes have been reshaped. The headlights are positioned lower than the current X7, though this aligns the alleged X8 with the upcoming X7 refresh in terms of headlamp design – albeit the X8 isn't showing any sign of a split-headlight design. And yes, the massive kidneys found on the X7 will likely appear on the X8 as well, given the spy shots that you see here.
  24. Three very different men of different ages decide on their favourite BMWs to suit their backgrounds and lifestyles. What are the BMWs that they’ve picked BMW’s ‘Power of Choice’ strategy offers customers the opportunity to choose the powertrain of their choice, from petrol-powered BMWs to plug-in hybrid or fully electric ones. For those who still prefer internal combustion engines, BMW’s wide range of models means that we get to pick the best car to suit our needs. While the more traditional choices include the 3 Series, 5 Series and 7 Series, you now have BMWs in all shapes and sizes. These include hatchbacks, coupes, MPVs and SUVs. But what would be a great start to the BMW range? I took my two colleagues to find out. And as cliché as it sounds, it was as easy as one, two, and three. The 1 Series – Young and professional In the working world, image is almost everything. And in my late 20s, there are many around me who want an identifiable badge, and they look at the BMW 1 Series for such inspiration. After all, being the 1 Series, it is the introduction to the world of BMW. It’s a hatchback, so it’ll appeal to those looking for an easier car to move around town. But for me, it isn’t about the badge. It is about having a car that’s pretty complete in features and driving quality. And the 1 Series delivers. It has safety assistance features such as Lane Keeping Assistant and Blind Spot Detection, and even added connectivity features such as wireless charging and wireless Apple CarPlay. And with its turbocharged 1.5-litre engine offering ample power along with a well-tuned chassis, it is a joyous drive when you throw some bendy bits of road at it. Mind you, this is the 116i variant of the BMW 1 Series, making it a Category A COE car. That means more savings, and yet, it still delivers a complete package. The 2 Series – Style and substance But hatchbacks aren’t for everyone. In Singapore, at least, sedans are still the traditional choice. And Desmond, now in his early 30s, is a stylish sort of man. But in a professional setting, having a car that’s a little too quirky isn’t exactly what he needs. What fits his needs, then? It is the 2 Series Gran Coupe. It is a practical four-door car, with a sloping, coupe-like silhouette. There’s style, substance, and big boot(y) practicality to the mix. What’s not to like? And talking about that boot, it is 430 litres big - more than enough hauling capacity for a family. That is of course if Desmond ever plans to build a family. But the 2 Series Gran Coupe effectively offers what’s available with the 1 Series and more. You get the good road manners and plenty of safety and infotainment features to justify its price tag. And in this 218i trim, you also get a higher dose of power, at 138hp and 220Nm of torque from its 1.5-litre turbo lump. And not to forget the generous dose of style the 2 Series Gran Coupe offers on the road. For a stylish man like Desmond, it is the perfect fit. The 3 Series – Family professional The 3 Series has been the staple in the BMW range for over seven generations, making it the oldest name amongst the other two. And currently, it is one of the best executive sedans out there. The 3 Series is not all about suits and ties. We’ll all look good in a 3 Series, but it does offer that stately age after being in the business for so long. Thus, for someone like Julian, a family man of two kids, you just cannot go wrong with the 3 Series. When the family is involved, comfort tends to be one of the priorities. As for ticking the right boxes, the 3 Series is now bigger, so there’s plenty of room to spare. While all three cars have air-con vents at the back, the one in the 3 Series has climate control. This allows Julian’s passengers to adjust the temperature to their liking. Which is quite a big deal, because this is the 318i – the introductory variant to the 3 Series here in Singapore. And with it comes a slew of standard features for Julian to enjoy. From BMW’s Intelligent Personal Assistant, which recognises voice commands, and a Reversing Assistant that takes control of the steering to trace the last 50 metres travelled, to the Digital Key, enabling Julian to set up his car key on a compatible iPhone and share it with up to five friends. Not to forget wireless features comprising charging, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto - the whole nine yards. And when you want to have some fun behind the wheel, that taut and agile chassis we’ve all known the 3 Series offers is still there. Does the complete package exist? Julian sure thinks so! Easy as One, Two, Three As you can see, the 1 Series, 2 Series and 3 Series are perfect choices for us in the Editorial team. All three cars are comprehensively packed with the latest features and equipment, comfortable to ride in and practical for couples or families. But more importantly, when it comes to dynamic driving abilities, you can bet these BMWs will put a smile on your face, every single time. What more can you ask for in a car that can proficiently serve as a means of transport and deliver spirited driving in spades? Choosing your first BMW? It is easier than you think. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car. We’ll even give you $100 cash if you find a better offer elsewhere!
