    Low Mileage Car

    Been working from home since covid started. At first still have some alternate week arrangement but for the past 6 months totally never step into office. Just realized the following things 1) 6 months travel only about 500km. noticed this when I am scheduling for the next oil change. Wonder if can push the next oil change to a couple of months more. like change a year once 2) 1 full tank petrol can use 3 months. Maybe next time should top just 1/4 tank Any other ideas to save on maintenance for a real low mileage car?

  6. Any decent carwash in the west? I saw there was thread for East but not for West
  7. Hi all, i have a similar question as OP as well. Can't create a new topic as i'm new to this forum, apologies. Thinking of buying my first car, budget around 30-40k and looking for manual cars preferably. With these 2 criteria in mind, i have shortlisted 2 cars - 2009 Honda Civic 1.8M and Subaru Impreza/STI (more out of budget). 1. For my first car, should i go for one with renewable COE (so that i can still sell next time) or just try try for 2-3 years and then scrape? 2. Any other manual cars available you guys would recommend? Quite hard to find manual cars nowadays... Any help would be much appreciated, cheers!

    Enzo car mats

    Anyone using the above mentioned brand of car mats? Any reviews on it?
  9. You are in the right section, since it is about auto manufacturer... It is not uncommon for large corporation to venture into businesses that is not directly related to what they are best known for, such as Fujitsu and Hitachi have gone into agriculture business (high tech farming), or for that matter, Nokia started off as a manufacturer of toilet paper, Geely with fridge, etc. For a start, let make a guess what is this item number for, under VW's official part list? 199 398 500 A (siting right between the wiper blades and lug nuts)? Nope, it is not bumper, headlight, engine oil, key chain or stuffed toy, but something edible. And nope, not the coffee or biscuit you had while waiting for your car to be service, but something that is very much popular in western... ... ... ... First created in 1973, Volkswagen has made its own currywurst sausage ever since, and in the process turned it into a symbol of the company throughout Europe. While it’s a staple of the factory cafeterias in Wolfsburg and other European Volkswagen plants for breakfast or lunch, it’s also sold in grocery stores under the “Volkswagen Originalteil” (German for “original parts”) brand. Dealers in Germany often give five-packs of them to customers as gifts. And it’s a huge hit: last year, Volkswagen made 6.8 million currywursts – more than the number of vehicles the VW brand sold worldwide in 2017. What does the VW currywurst taste like? To an American palate accustomed to bratwursts and other sausages typically labeled “sweet” or “hot,” the currywurst walks the broad space in between. There’s a strong yellow curry flavor, but with a kick from the pepper and ginger in the spices. The actual recipe, as devised by the original Volkswagen butchers in 1973, is an official company secret known only to a few people. It’s typically served either intact or chopped into bite-size slices on a paper bowl and drenched in ketchup – preferably the curry-flavored variety also made to Volkswagen’s recipe. Since its inception, the currywurst has been made in-house by Volkswagen employees. Today, about 30 workers, most of them trained butchers, oversee the process at VW’s flagship plant in Wolfsburg. Three times a week, the plant takes in fresh pork from nearby farms and grinds choice cuts into a precise mix. “Our currywurst has a fat content of only 20 percent. Normally, it’s around 35 percent,” explains Head Butcher Franco Lo Presti, who has been making VW currywurst since 1979. After mixing in the spices and packed into casings, the sausages are dried, smoked over beechwood and steamed for 100 minutes at 176 degrees. The final product is weighed, inspected and packaged for shipping to other Volkswagen plans or retailers, with a typical output of 18,000 sausages a day. For those workers who don’t prefer meat, VW has also made a vegetarian variant since 2010. And VW also made their own ketchup...
  10. I have just seen cases of used car dealers adjusting the mileage of the cars advertised on SGCarMart. Is this against the law? My recent ex-ride is one such case.

    New car discount/price/promo

    What I notice when i go Merc/BMW/Audi showrroms is that their price on price list is so high but actually there is huge discounts almost all the time. For merc is often in the form of overtrade. So I thought I would share some discounts that I know. Of coz it is updated all the time so maybe the bros here can share what you have heard so it is easier for ppl to have an idea before heading down to the show room. I shall start first: CLA: 173,888, 8k overtrade and 3k service credit 520i business: 242,800, 10k overtrade E-class and S-class got 10k COE discount or high COE rebate at 76k VW Jetta: 118,800
  12. This poll is inspired by a car i saw earlier today, and also the recent announcement by HDB that there is no longer a need to display the season parking RFID tag any more. Some may think having too many decals and stickers is an overkill, but others may like it and do the same on their own car. For me, i have a few decals but dont like to overclutter... As some of you may know, i have MCF sticker too haha... Do post pics of the decals and stickers that you are proudest of! cheers!
  13. Hi all, new potential 2nd hand car buyer here. Looking to get a 2nd hand car in the near future. Browsed through sgcarmart and I have shortlisted a few models of car. 1. Audi A3 Sedan 1.4A TFSI Ambiente The cars i shortlisted are roughly the same in terms of age (3Y8M left) and price (50k) 2. Ssangyong Tivoli 1.6A I personally like the way it looks. However, I do not really see much of this model on the roads and was wondering if there is a particular reason so. Years left is decent (4Y8M) , price (56k) I have also looked at Kia Cerato as well as Hyundai Elantra. Would like to seek your thoughts on which would be a more worthwhile car and if so, what other cars would be an alternative? Really appreciate the help and all advice in advance!
  14. Anyone bought car parts and accessories from taobao and care to share their experience? Been looking around and prices are really affordable for many things likes accessories and even service parts. Of course I am concerned about imitations but seems like some items are genuine but made for their local market. Currently, I am looking at stuffs like car door visors, windshield wipers and diy soundproofing rubber strips.
  15. Paiseh paiseh, totally forgotten that COE bidding exercise started this week. Community Service brought to you by MCF Good Luck to all vested! 3 useful links for our dear MCFers: Real Time COE Bidding Results Check Your COE Bidding Status Latest COE Prices and Trending The details of the June 2021 1st open bidding exercise for Certificates of Entitlement (COEs) are as follows: Tender opens: Monday, 7 June 2021, 12 noon Tender closes: Wednesday, 9 June 2021, 4.00 pm Tender results: Wednesday, 9 June 2021 (Available on the www.onemotoring.lta.gov.sg website) The total quota available for this tender is 2,753 for the following vehicle categories: NON-TRANSFERABLE CATEGORIES Category A : Cars (up to 1600cc & 97kW (130bhp)) => 858 Category B : Cars (above 1600cc or 97kW (130bhp)) => 815 Category D : Motorcycles => 626 TRANSFERABLE CATEGORIES Category C : Goods Vehicles and Buses => 195 Category E : Open Category => 259
  16. If you buy a COE Car and have $3K to spare. . . This is an assumptive thread where I will go and fish some of the COE cars in sgcarmart and share with you all, If I were to buy these cars, what are the things that I will spend on and why I will spend on these items. I did buy a COE car, and I spend quite a fair bit in modification, But that's my hobby. For those who are considering buying COE car or those who are driving a COE car, please come and share with us your maintenance and pro tips to preserve a COE car. To start off with the first car, I have chosen my own car model. 2007 Honda Accord Euro R. So, if I put aside $3,000. What will I spend on? The car itself is in a very mint condition, Only like some exterior wear and tear I will complaint, other than that I think the car drives very well so nothing much I would like to do to the engine, Just to make it a tad bit better for daily driving. Innovative Mount - $500 + 300(labour) I bought the engine mount online at ebay and went to install. Skunk2 Short Shifter - $90 Alpine Type-E Series SXE-1750S Car Audio 6.5-Inch Component 2-Way Speakers ($60) PAC RPK4-HD1101 Audio Integrated Installation Kit 2003-2007 Honda Accord ($400) I think this is one of my best value buy. instantly make the car modern again! Now Euro R comes with Apple Carplay and Android Auto! Sony XAV-AX200 DVD Receiver w/Bluetooth - ($350) The reason why I choose this headunit is because of the volume knob. I am very analog and anal when comes to these things. So this fit the bills. Momo 350 Monte Carlo Steering wheel ($130) Brought Second-hand at Japan Yahoo auction. They say airbag save lives. But unfortunately, the Honda Accord Euro R had a recall for the airbag. And I would like to preserve the original steering wheel in good condition, so when I sell the car, I hope it helps to fetch a better price, so I bought a momo steering wheel to replace. Haven't install yet, will update the photos when installed. Fluidampr performance damper ($700) Also Yahoo Auction. Since I upgraded the engine mount, the rattling of the dash is quite significant, yes, the drive is more responsive. But also a bit harsh in daily drive. So after some research, I came across this damper to help absorb some of the vibrations and also give a smoother delivery on low RPM. A full spray exterior spray painting. ($900) I have sent my car for a refresh since I might drive it for 10 years. Best decision ever! For those who want lobangs can check out MCF Marketplace for lobangs! Summary Innovative mount - $800 Skunk2 Short Shifter - $90 Alpine Speaker - $60 PAC Kit - $400 Sony XAV-AX200 - $350 MOMO Steering Wheel - $130 FluidAmpr - $700 Full Respray - $900 Total = $3,430 Over budget abit. I think Steering wheel and short shifter can be excluded if want. 😄

  20. Hey guys, do u know any good and cheap experienced Lexus specialised workshop for me to service and overhaul my lexus gs? Thanks for all the recommendations and help!
  21. Hi guys I cant seem to find reviews of the above. Does anyone have any clue? Personal experiences please share.
  22. Singaporeans spend so much time rushing here and there, living hectic lives. Sometimes, with everything that's happening, you neglect your own safety, and, in this case, you get put to sleep by a higher power. If you watched the recent Mortal Kombat movie, the way the jaywalker flew reminds me of this scene. But I digress. Let's get right into the video. It's a sunny (風和日麗) afternoon along a 2-lane road. The right lane is congested. The cam car navigates his way to the left lane (I would too to escape waiting). The cam car speeds up on the empty left lane and "Mr Ronaldo" (I'm going to call the jaywalker Mr Ronaldo) dashes out of nowhere into the path of the cam car. "Mr Ronaldo" 👇 BAM! Ouch! What an impact. It looks painful, doesn't it? The impact is so strong that it even sends him flying and flipping before crumpling to an unconscious heap on the road. The driver does not look like it's going extremely fast as he just started picking up speed not too long before Mr Ronaldo jumped in. Think of Mr Ronaldo like a tennis ball and the cam car as a tennis racket. That's rebounding at the maximum velocity right there. Here's the full video. Your-Facebook-Video-fbdown.net.mp4 While it does not look life threatening, I wish Mr Ronaldo a quick recovery and please watch out for traffic when you cross the road! Even better still, don't jaywalk!
