  1. so after reading so many bad reviews about the civic hybrid and several good reviews about the pirus i'm wondering if 100% electric cars will be a good move in the near future, if the battery can withstand our sunny temperatures anybody got any experience to share? what is the lifespan of such batteries? the civic groups complain a whole lot about their batteries but the people who own the piruses seem to be very happy with their cars, so it does seem like a split down the middle
  2. Time for a new thread. Part 1, click here. Part 2, click here. This highly customised model is so cute, look just like a life size hot wheels toy car! Volkswagen Dune Buggy Not to be confused with the Australian built Country Buggy, the dune buggy (a.k.a beach buggy) is a recreational motor vehicle with large wheels, and wide tires, designed for use on sand dunes, beaches, roads or desert recreation.
  3. Noticed more and more cars on the road and in carpark lots that at first glance, looks like some model (usually higher performance of the range) but ultimately gives the game away with a lack of attention (or funds) to the details. I am not censoring out the VRN since I believe that anything that is on the outside of the car do not belong to you and if you dare to fake it, don't be afraid to flaunt it. Let me start off with this particular one I saw... Mods itself, I will say it is ok but why on earth will you put the ///5 badge there? Even putting just the /// badge beside the 535

  5. TL;DR - A horrifying accident involving 14 cars occurred along Bartley Viaduct just two days after Christmas. If you happened to drive along the Bartley Viaduct on 27th Dec, you would have witnessed a rare (not to mention expensive for those involved) occurrence. It's not every day you get to see 14 cars collided into one another in a straight line. There's even a bird's eye view of the incident! Watch this 56-second video to see how it looks. What happened? A chain reaction collision involving 14 cars occurred, leading to a long pile-up on the rig
  6. TL;DR - Two cars were seen beating the red light at Jurong Gateway, clearly intentional from the way they slowly inched out bit by bit over the stop line. GOAT stands for Greatest of All Time. As the name suggests, GOAT is an internet slang initialism used to compliment an honorable mention. But not in this case. Watch this 63-second shocker to know what I mean. What happened? These two drivers were seen not conforming to the traffic light as they budged out of the stop line. As long as you have a bit of common sense, when the traffic light turns red and a
  8. Watched a repeat of TopGear (episod in china) and the 3 men condemned whatever cars made in china. I think today, china's cars are not really up to international standard yet in terms of safety, performance, etc but since these B&B cars are for their domestic markets where the majority of buyers dont really know anything better, china car makers will continue to churn out millions of mediocre cars yet still find buyers queue up, end of the days making tons of money. Is there a incentive for them to make better cars, to match the quality/performance etc of say VW etc, let alone th
  9. Hi, Would like to know how many will consider buying a EuroIV diesel car instead of the normal petrol car? The first consideration is of coz diesel car gives better mileage and maybe cheaper daily running cost. While car uses petrol is kind of rather standard on the cost of daily running. Your comments and thoughts plzzzzz...
  10. At every car show or new model introduction, auto manufacturers would always come out with a long list, stating the unique features of their cars, but many a times, these features might just be forgotten over time, or simply taken for granted. These features may be a real technology break through (e.g. engine, gearbox, safety, etc.), or mechanical / electrical (e.g. spoiler, door opening mechanism, head / tail light, etc.). To kick start, anyone still can recall the following terminology? - Twin Door - Bi-Modal Trunk - Waku Waku Gate Sounds familiar? or are they aliens to you? or yo
  11. Time for a Part 2 as the original thread has clocked >10,000 posts (10,100 posts to be exact). Kudos to @Theoldjaffa for starting the thread and allows many of us to have a glimpse of unusual / rare car models on our road, or even overseas! OK, this is a definitely an unusual car in BMW history. Look closer, this is NOT a normal E30 320i Convertible... For those who still catches no ball, it has a fixed B & C pillar! Yes, this is the BMW E30 3 Series Baur TopCabriolet. The convertible came courtesy of a Stuttgart-based coachbu
  12. I am wondering, with COE being so high, should gov give COE rebates to households with 3 kids or more? Cars being a limited resource now, doesn't it make sense for a car to transport 5 people around vs 1 person on the road? If that one person cannot drive, all he adds is 1 person to the public transport load. Plus it helps to encourage kids which I feel is one of the biggest problems we have as a nation. Example, if the household rebate is 20%, you pay COE of 80% of prevailing price. If you scrape the car early, you will only get 80% COE rebate from remaining COE. When you sell

  18. SINGAPORE - Retiree Steven Chia placed an order for a Mercedes-Benz GLB from authorised agent Cycle & Carriage last September, and waited seven months for it to be delivered - more than double the usual time. Mr Chia, 62, said: "I was supposed to collect my car last December or January this year, but I was told that because of the Covid-19 lockdowns and the war in Ukraine, shipment was delayed. I finally got my car on April 23." For motorists looking to buy a new car, be prepared to wait - possibly as long as Mr Chia, if not longer. Carmakers reeling from supply chain disrup
  19. Volvo Cars bets on electric vehicles Volvo Cars is only going to sell electric vehicles by 2030, the Swedish firm has said. It will phase out all car models with internal combustion engines by then, including hybrids. The carmaker is also planning to invest heavily in online sales and simplifying its products. It is trying to capitalise on growing demand for electric cars, including in China, which is already one of its biggest markets. Carmakers are also responding to pressure from governments around the world to beef up their electric car plans. New

  21. JOHOR BARU: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has announced that the Government has decided to implement the Vehicle Entry Permit fee for all foreign vehicles entering Johor. Najib said that the decision was made following a request made by the state. "I have discussed the matter with Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and have also informed Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Wahid Omar of our decision. "I have instructed him to inform the Road Transport Department (JPJ) so they can work out the details before the VEP is implemented," he said during a
  22. Taking this off the 2020 thread, who wants to predict which cars will sell well in the current economic climate? IMO, if the economy isn't doing too well, the brands with larger margins like the conti premium marques will fair better. The up and coming cars with a higher price tag will have to fight with the traditional best sellers. Budget buyers will opt for lower cost cars from the more peripheral brands, as well as the PI cars. But for those opting for PI cars, make sure your T&C is watertight. With COEs diminishing in quantity, the cost will go up and if the deal looks

  25. Anyone has passion for classic cars? Do you like them, hate them or indifferent. I had 2 previous experience of driving old COE cars, 70's registered. Only car I could afford then, but it was really fun. Had a Mini Clubman and a BMW E21 before. Likes - simple engine, any mechanic also can fix - no such thing as fuel injection, carburretors. Very few of the same cars on the road. Even sports car drive pass also look. dislikes - rust, high road tax, take loan must pay football money. I like best the Triumph spitfire, Ford Mustang, MGB and Alfa spyder.
