  1. We had so much fun talking about this last year, with supporters and haters of various brands coming out of the woodwork.. Should we fear starting a topic on this? Nah... Like Nike, Just Do It 😉 So which cars will feature in the top ten? How about the brands? Which ones will be top again? IMO, the top brands won't change much: Toyota, Honda, Merc and Hyundai will be there. Who else will be interesting to watch, as the fortunes of the various brands have changed a lot over the last year. Nissan would have been there a few years back when they had the QQ, the darling of the local market five years ago, but no longer so. The Subaru Forrester used to sell very well, but let's see if the current version can do the same too. Come come, send in your predictions, but this is no EDMW, so let's keep it civil 🙂
  2. Do remember to check the medication your elderly at home are consuming. They are the most vulnerable groups. HSA recalls 3 brands of high blood pressure drugs over potentially harmful impurity SINGAPORE: Three brands of high blood pressure medicine containing the ingredient losartan have been recalled because they contain higher than acceptable levels of a potentially harmful impurity, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) said on Thursday (Mar 28). The drugs contain the active ingredient losartan potassium, which was manufactured by Indian pharmaceutical company Hetero Labs. The affected products are the 50mg and 100mg tablets from the brands Losartas, Losagen and Hyperten and distributed by local suppliers Apotheca Marketing, Medicell Pharmaceutical and Goldplus Universal, respectively. About 137,000 patients in Singapore are using the three recalled brands of losartan medicine, said the Ministry of Health (MOH). Losartas is prescribed in public healthcare institutions, while Losartas, Losagen and Hyperten are prescribed at private healthcare institutions. HSA has advised patients not to stop treatment on their own as there is no immediate health risk and sudden stopping of the drugs can pose greater immediate risk to their health. The recalled products were found to contain trace amounts of a nitrosamine impurity, N-nitro-N-methyl-4-aminobutyric acid (NMBA), which are above internationally accepted levels, HSA said. Exposure to nitrosamines at high quantities over a long-term period may potentially increase the risk of cancer. For example, the added cancer risk from an additional six-month exposure is estimated to be less than 0.0002 per cent. “The risks of trace amounts of NMBA are associated with long term exposure. Sudden stopping of the medicines can pose greater and more immediate risk to patient’s health … We have advised healthcare professionals to review the medicine and treatment plans of their patients,” HSA said. HSA said that several losartan medicines have been recalled overseas since end-February due to the presence of NMBA. It tested all locally marketed losartan products for the presence of the NMBA impurity and in March found the three brands contained trace amounts of NMBA above acceptable levels. The other seven brands of losartan medicines marketed in Singapore are NOT affected by this impurity.
  3. Based on my own opinions, these are few brands which I feel have made tremendous improvements and progress to their car making etc. Kia Mazda (since last 5 to 6 years) Especially their new Mazda 3 and 6 are quite awesome. Hyundai Peogeot (their latest series of car are very exciting indeed) Reliable or not, maintenance high or not, still unknown Opel and Renault - their latest models are really heart stealers. Very sleeze and timeless. Reliable or not.. Another issue as I have not tried owning one before. Here are some brands which I think quite disappointing in recent years. Toyota - maybe still as reliable but somewhat losing much of their appeals in terms of their designs and overall. It still cannot do away with the reputation of producing uncle's cars model that appeal to more mature people. My personal opinion. Honda, mobilo, shuttle, grace and even the new civic.. Looks kinda awkward and it seems they are trying too hard but too overkill. The new civic looks overkill and trying too hard, and it does not look very modern and rather backwards.. Personal opinion again. Nissan.. Well as always, they are never the best among the top and always churning out bulky, fatty, mature looking cars that not really appealing to younger buyers. Mitsubishi..their peak was the Glx and ex Lancer era.. After which... It seems really difficult to accept. Maybe they are gg for higher end suv or mpv now.. But their sedan's series is quite pathetic. Suzuki and surbaru... Maybe surbaru are going better but still 2nd tier or even 3rd tier when comes to those mentioned.

  5. Hi Guys, Like to find out from you guys that which battery brand is the consumer's choice. Kindly share with me the battery you are using and maybe why did you choose that battery! (:
  6. I came across a brand of rims called 'Forged'. Very literal. Not sure if the rims are actually cast or forged. Very curious about this brand as I cannot find anything about it online. Is there anyone who knows any info on this brand of rims?
  7. Came across this international web article which I find should make for an interesting discussion thread especially when discussed in local Singapore context This thread is meant to be light-hearted and for many of us to share our own observation and preconception towards drivers of certain car brands on our roads. ============================================================================================== Car Brands vs. Personality Traits of Men Give a man a car and he’ll act like a kid. Give a man his favorite car and he’ll love you forever! All men dream about is having their own car since they are little kids, but as the years pass them by they start having daring dreams which are getting renewed once they get the car of their dreams. Like Owning a type of car corresponds to the verge they’ve reached in their lives. In the same way the pets resemble to their owners, by analogy, men choose their cars depending on their preferences, congeniality and, of course, according to their personality. Men’s ego must be satisfied by the brand and the car’s performances. We’ve analyzed five car brands to show you what kinds of men own such vehicles. Ladies might want to be attentive! Audi Owners The first thing that comes in mind related to these kinds of men is the fact that they are very impulsive, extremely enthusiasts and care about their car more than anything in this world. If you’ll ever ask them to choose between a woman and their car, they will definitely go with the car. They love spending time driving and they are extremely agile and seem like they are always in a hurry. They take great care about their car and if it has even the smallest scratch, they will instantly take it to the car service. They love the tuning and want to own a vehicle with as many options as possible. If you were to be a car, you will definitely have to be an Audi in order to have a caring owner. BMW Owners Related to their personality, the BMW owners are nice guys, friendly and jovial. They love to brag about their car and to stand out in every way, even if that means turning the music up. On the road, they are respectful drivers, they give priority and they have adrenaline in their blood because they enjoy the speed very much. They can’t stand having a scratch on their car but if it occurs, they wait patiently to solve the problem. BMW owners are extremely proud of their acquisition and this thing can be noticed by anyone who sees them. They can often attract the antipathy of the others because of their attitude. Mercedes Owners What we can say about them is that they are some very friendly people that want comfort and the acceptable level of luxury. They are practical men, often undecided and they are not the best drivers on the road. As for their temperament, they are friendly people and very voluble but they always succeed to maintain the necessary distance with the people around them. They are tempered and respectful drivers, who prefer to avoid confrontations than provoking them. Volkswagen Owners This type of men belongs to the category of the people who are very full of themselves, who are very aware of their value as persons and who give the impression of being very sociable. They enjoy driving their car and they are very reluctant when it comes to borrowing it to someone. They are very good drivers who take into account the traffic rules and who love traffic order, preferring to avoid the agglomerated areas. These men love to make promises without keeping them and like to excessively brag about their car and life. Opel Owners They are the men that are part of the reserved category of people. They are proud of their vehicles but they keep the feeling for themselves. This type of drivers is respectful and they take into account the fact that they have to avoid trouble in traffic. They love off-road driving and they feel very relaxed and worry-free when in their cars. They are ambitious people who love to dream about more than life can offer them. http://glamgrid.com/car-brands-vs-personality-traits-of-men/
  8. Hi, I am thinking of changing my tyres on my Estima. Current I am using Dunlop (225/50R18) but few months back it hit a nail so I am contemplating to change it soon. The current model as I have checked with many shops are hard to replace (ie such models are not common in the marketl) so it's best to change all 4. I have been reading that certain brands have their pros and cons. In my previous ride which is a Toyota Wish from BM, I used to always use Yokohama (stock). I am not into tyres so basically safety is the top prority and I do travel to Malaysia quite abit with my family. Any brand of tyres to be recommended for safety and fuel efficency? Thks.
  9. Can anyone think or funny names for these brands ? BMW Bring Me Worries AUDI ?? Benz ?? Fiat ?? OPEL ?? GM Got Money ? Toyota ?? Honda ?? Mazda ?? Ford ??
  10. hi there ! Just discovered that the front/rear left tyres of my 2002 Renault Classic are nearly botak on the side. But the right set is still quite good.

Current set is Continental EcoContact while i'm thinking of getting 2 new BridgeStone GR80. appreciate if anyone know of good lobangs for the wheels too. Thanks !

    Maximum Badge for Minimum Cash

    If you are reading this blog entry, then you are probably one of the members who spend hours on mycarforum and myautoblog every day. And hanging out with other car enthusiasts, you would probably know at least the basics of cars; maybe more. When you buy a car, you more or less know what sort of car and kit you are getting for your hard earned money. But you would be in the minority. Most Singaporean car buyers couldn't give a damn what is under the bonnet, the figures or even if the car was rear wheel drive. What they do give a damn about though is the badge stuck on the bonnet and boot of the car. Who cares about how the car drives so long as the badge is fancy enough to impress your next door neighbour, your relatives and your friends. The car badge is literally worth more than its weight in gold. Anyone remember those fake Lexus Harriers running rampant in Singapore several years ago? And unsurprisingly, the premium car marques in Singapore have caught onto this propensity for flashing wealth. And so BMW brought in the 1 series as an affordable and attainable way of getting on the premium car bandwagon and then the 320i and then the 318i. Well guess what? Now there is an even more affordable way to lay one's grubby Singaporean hands on a snobbish German badge - the Audi A1! If one can put up with the small size of the car, it represents the most badge for buck! Imagine the 4 Audi Circles for $126 grand thereabouts! With COE prices as they are these days, this sum isn't all that steep (relatively speaking). This has got to be my top pick for maximum badge for minimum cash! So, just in case, if you happen to be in the majority (i.e. you have some snob in you); and are in the market for a premium car, you should head down and plonk down some cash for an Audi A1 right away. No test drive needed and don't even bother with the car reviews. It won't matter to you anyway. You get all your money back the next time you pull up alongside your neighbour's VW Golf. Well, at least until the Aston Martin Cygnet goes into production and your neighbour gets his hands on one. PS: If you were ever in doubt, this was a review of the new Audi A1 and it told you all you needed to know about it. And no I didn't have to drive one to write this.
  13. Used to be low/mid range models made by BMW, Merc, or maybe even Audi, but nowadays if you shut your eyes and throw a coke can, you will hit at least half a dozen of them!! :D So what are the new generation Hao-Lianers'' preferred brands/models now??

    What brands are over-rated?

    I will start with MacDonalds. IMO they serve the worst burgers but their sales is the best because they have good marketing that can make consumers go crazy. Starbucks is like the MacDonalds of coffee in that their fame exceeds their quality. I know people will sure bash Toyota for cars but what about Honda or other Jap brands? Is German engineering really that fantastic? For football, it has to be England. Anymore over-rated brands you can think of?
  24. on hand can only think of RM. Which brand is better ?
