  1. Hi MCFers, I am here to announce another piece of good news to all of you. On top of having the Threads of the Month Contest, we will be introducing the ‘Most Worthy Thread of the Month’ Contest. We’re seeing some really good and quality threads/posts by some of the members here but unfortunately, they’ve come short of winning ‘TOTM’ due to popularity votes. So this is where this contest comes in. Think of it as a wildcard. Let’s cut to the chase. What’s deemed worthy? Must it be car related? Anything under the sun. We’re not kidding. If you’re a wanderlust, it could be your own travel thread complete with pictures, advice, tips on how to travel better, cheaper, and smarter so everyone can explore the world on a budget too. If you’re a hardcore car enthusiast, which is what this forum is all about, share with members your crazy DIY fixes, modifications, latest improvisations etc. Points to note: - There will only be ONE winner for Most Worthy Thread of the Month - It will be selected by the Internal Moderators - It is possible to win both Thread of the Month and Most Worthy Thread of the Month - Winner will be announced by the 15th of every month - No winner will be announced for any particular month if no threads are selected PRIZE: $200 Petrol or NTUC Vouchers So.... First Winner for Most Worthy Thread of the Month (Moderator's Choice) Congratulations to @Vratenza for being the FIRST winner for Most Worthy Thread of the Month – Wheel Spacer Installation DIY http://www.mycarforum.com/topic/2705970-wheel-spacer-installation-diy/?hl=%2Bwheel+%2Bspacer Your effort in making the thread informative and instructional has not gone unnoticed! We will contact you shortly via PM .
  2. Hi all, I've not been to these 2 places. Just wondering which is a better choice for an island getaway for family with young children. Likely to stopover at Putrajaya prior going towards either one of them. Want to catch the smelly tofu at Cheras . In term of parking, which is more convenient at the jetty? since can't get the car into the island. Welcome feedback and suggestions. Thank you very much. Regards,
  3. Received an e-mail from friend and read it with about the different between margarine & butter. Don't know whether it is true or not but no harm reading it. "Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back. It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavourings. DO YOU KNOW..the difference between margarine and butter? Read on to the end...gets very interesting! Both have the same amount of calories. Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams. Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study. Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods. Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few only because they are added! Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods. Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years. And now, for Margarine. Very high in trans fatty acids. Triple risk of coronary heart disease. Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol) Increases the risk of cancers up to five fold. Lowers quality of breast milk. Decreases immune response. Decreases insulin response. And here's the most disturbing fact... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING! Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC.. This fact alone was enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance). You can try this yourself: Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will note a couple of things: * no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something) * it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value; nothing will grow on it Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?" Chinese
  4. Lets say u r in a open space carpark, will you park under tree for shade, or park openly n endure the sun? Be it rain or shine.
  5. So for the last 2 weeks in a battle to select one HB for missus Citroen C4 SX. Decided to go for a new one new as it made more sense as the depreciation is no different from used one. Below are my personal FR where most are conti based made choices with budget below 120k: 1.Opel a. Astra K: Good looking and with most features under 100k but alas, no more selling. Would have want to choose this. b. Crossland: Too cartoon like. Next........ 2.Audi a. A3: Looks handsome but most pricey at 120k. Though FL but profile does look a bit dated. 3. VW a. Golf: The entry golf is just below 100k but features are rather pathetic. Halogen lights and no keyless start. 4.Nissan a. Note: Made in Jap but whole car looks budget and from the 80s. 4. Hyudai a. i30: Looks good with fresh design inside out. But lacked the conti feels although its czech made. 5. Honda a. Fit/jazz: Looks and feels much better then Note and both cars rear legroom is generous. Its an understatement to say its big. 6. Mini a. One: Impressive build quality and cutest of them all with a BMW 3 cylinder 1.5L unit. Drive is good and the handling is impressive that points to everywhere you wanna to. Ride a bit jittery probably because of short wheelbase 7. Seat a. Leon/ibiza/ Ateza: None with build quality that impressed me. 8. Skoda: a. Rapid: As above of Seat. 9. Used (fairly new) wowo V40 a. could not stand the ah pek style steering wheel. Next...... 10. Infinity Q30. almost want to go showroon but was a diesel unit and she travels too little for it. Next.... 11. Pugeot a. 308/2008: rear legroom small and uncomfy. No discount or promotion. What would be your choice and we have decided it, more like i decided for her.
  6. Today's Straits Times got one article mentioning the above statement. They even did a test on Impreza and WRX with different grades and brands of petrol for best power output. With different engine speed (rmp) on both cars, it shows that 95-octane has the best result! Of cos there are many other factors not put into consideration. However, I think this is a good indicator for some of us.
  7. It is one of those freebies when you get to use the credit cards. Need some help to choose between a Traveller's choice 30" 8-wheel TSA Spinner (model unknown) and 76cm Delsey Belfort Plus lugguage bag. I have not used any of these. Appreciate your feedback if you have used any of them before. Thanks.

  10. This seem to be a bit of weird size, not many choices to choose from... Have 2 model in mind, Michelin PS3 (too bad this size not available) so the next is RE001, anyone tried RE001 in this weird size?
  11. In Singapore driving context what is your choice of auto-transmission? CVT or DCT/DSG or AT(torque converter). For those who are lucky enough to have driven all three types, what are the pluses, minuses or quirks of these transmissions when applied to driving on Singapore roads and conditions. For noob like me who only has driven AT only, it would really give a good insight. (ok...I know I can google the different types but I just like to hear opinions those who really use them on our roads) Thanks for input.

    Toyota camry tyre choice

    hi bro and sis my camry due to tyre changes. first time change, no idea which tyre brand better for camry. can to give some suggestions ? also heard from fren that michelin not bad, dun know true or not haha currently using yokohama 215/60 R16 95H ... great if can recommend good shop to change near west area, and also indicative prices ... thanks
  13. Ok, thats it. I have seen just too many such Audi drivers, not to make this statement. Today just 20mins of driving, have met 3 reckless Audi drivers spoiling for a race which i will not bite. S5, A5 and A4. Seems like it is the current ah beng reckless drivers' top choice becos of the following reasons 1. Cheaper more affordable hp for hp compared to BMW, Mercy yet somewhat in the same prestige segment 2. Higher prestige than VW, VolVo and Saab 3. Turbo charged engines for many models makes for easy upgrades and mods Driver is usually a fairly new entrant to the Conti scene (less than 5 yrs) Driver always trying to prove a point, iwonder why? Inferiority complex? I dont get that from BMW drivers generally. Never from Bentleys. Occasionally from some C Class drivers which i write off most of the time anyway. Hardly from GTRs, once from a Maser. So can someone second my observations? Maybe Audis have just gotten too common in the last few years? Can these idiots just leave me alone to enjoy my Family car? Pwui!

    Free Choice for NS Vocation?

    http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/nsmen-may-get-to-choose/857398.html By the way, Switzerland citizens who have served in the army get to keep their rifles. Singaporean NSmen also can? I think got a lot of people going to chiong for Storemen liao!
  16. Despite the Government's push to get more motorists to switch to public transport, the car is still their preferred choice, a new study has found. Even if a commuter lives within a 10-minute walk of a train station, his average train usage drops by 15 per cent when he has access to a car, researchers found. Younger respondents also said they preferred driving, even during peak hours. Some 37 per cent of 16- to 24-year-olds indicated they prefer cars, compared to 26 per cent of commuters aged 35 to 54 and 18 per cent of those aged 55 and above. During off-peak travel, the figures were higher - to 43 per cent, 32 per cent and 21 per cent respectively. Even though most respondents recognised that cars are the main culprits of congestion, they would not be willing to ditch their vehicles. These were among key findings of a study of 1,500 people carried out between July 2012 and last month by Dr Pallab Saha of the National University of Singapore in collaboration with the Land Transport Authority. The findings were shared with delegates at the inaugural Singapore International Transport Congress and Exhibition yesterday. Dr Saha said people here are still too reliant on cars, despite the Government's efforts to beef up the public transport network and tighten vehicle ownership. Almost one in two Singapore households owns a car. "The car becomes aspirational because you've to pay (in excess of) tens of thousands of dollars for a car and the COE," said Dr Saha. "It is something that one can use to project social success." However the study also found that nearly two-thirds of motorists would take public transport if it becomes more costly to buy and use a car, and if there are fewer parking spaces. Eight in 10 said they are likely to make the switch if they are given accurate information of arrival and departure times at bus stops, more areas are accessible by bus and train routes, and public transport capacity is increased. Dr Saha said there is a need to change motorists' mindsets to wean them off their vehicles - like creating awareness of projects such as car-sharing schemes. He said these are "more about getting access to a car, not so much owning one". Source: http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/singapore/story/car-still-preferred-choice-new-study-finds-20131008
  17. Personally I think this writer is a bit daft. Maybe he is very rich or still studying
  18. If yes, how and why? For me, I think it's important for young ones to be in the right company of friends.

    E36 316I - Good choice?

    I'm toying with the idea of getting my all time favourite beemer model E36 since i sold my RAV4. Anyone had any knowledge on this car? I saw a '93 model 316i manual, and 2 newly renewed COE '96 316iA (manual and auto) Is this a good investment or am I heading for more trouble? Else, I might just settle for a AE101. Trustworthy engine, comfy ride, and plenty of spare parts. _________________
  20. Okay supposing your regime is to change oil at 5k and have to choose between - Mobil 1 0W40 (gold bottle) fully syn at about $90 for 4 L - c-----e's 0W30 fully syn at about $35 for 5L with a can of free oil addictive, which would you choose ? What if OCI set at 10K ? Also, how would Prestone 5W40 fully syn compared to the above (price and quality) ? Driving is 60/40 (60% city), short to mid distances (5 to 20km)
  21. Driving schools use certain models in their fleets. Does it mean that these are modes suitable as value-for-money, no-frills, tough-as-rock choice for buyers who want to buy a new/used reliable and low maintenance car? There must be some reasons similar to above why they are chosen by driving schools.
  22. Just curious...with the recent launch of the Honda Accord...which is your choice?still the bulky camry or the high tech accord?
