  1. Honda's a genius in churning out state-of-the-art small cars. Here's why. The 2014 Honda Jazz is 4cm shorter but it offers 138 liters more cabin-space volume and nearly 13cm of extra rear legroom - compared to the predecessor. Here's how Honda engineers eked out extra room in a shorter car. For starters, Jazz's wheelbase has been stretched further apart by 3cm allowing its rear seat bench to move back outwardly by 7.6cm. Next, engineers made the centrally-mounted fuel tank located beneath the front seats thinner liberating more space for passengers but retains the same liter-volume as previous models. Plus, the new Jazz could be served in a hedonic shade of lemonade yellow to go with its packaging.
  2. ? Which one to go for ? Cheap & good.
  3. This is from a 1993 local car magazine. Only Honda's flagship is non-turboed. And mind you, these are only flag ship. Down the line, you still have cars like Prelude, CRX, FTO, 200SX. It was a good time for car lovers then !

    Nostalgic 2 Days 2020

    While on our recent holiday to Japan, I managed to convince my other half to spend a few hours over at Pacifico Yokohama., She was bored, bought a crepe and sat around posting pictures on Instagram about how boring the event was. I was running around fervently trying to get as many pictures as I could and buying what little souvenirs I could get my hands on. Eventually, we had to leave and she went on to buy a Rolex later in the day. (With her own $ of cos) Anyways, here's part 1/5 of the event coverage. Enjoy. This post is separate from the vacay stuff so creating this thread. https://garage36.wordpress.com/2020/03/12/nostalgic-2-days-2020-historic-youth-part-1

  10. Parallel imported cars has been in the Singapore automotive market for decades. They offer car buyers alternative choices other than those selling in authorised dealers, bringing car models that authorised dealers don't bring in, and provide cheaper choice of almost similar models sold by authorised dealers. Although in the recent years, there have been some unscrupulous PI dealers practicing unethical practices of business, however, this only represnts the minority and parallel imported cars still remain a favourite choice for Singaporeans. PI market still consist mainly of JDM models although continental cars forms a fraction of the sales as well. Let us see some of the PI cars imported to Singapore in the past and presently. I'll start with JDMs. 1.

  11. Hi Guys! The Singapore Exotic Car Spotters is organizing it's 5th installment of #MeetTheRides on the 15th of April 2017, 3pm at the open carpark outside Kallang Leisure park! Its sure to be a fun filled afternoon full of cars and petrol heads. There is no need to own or drive an exotic as the meet is for owners and lovers of these vehicles alike! We pride ourselves on the meet being one of the most diverse that we have attended with cars ranging from exotics, to JDM and even a few classics. Do come down to enjoy the beautiful cars and petrol heads who will be present! The event is 100% free and would be a lovely afternoon out either for just yourself or the entire family! I have attached the link to the invite and the facebook page below! We hope to see you!

  12. This thread is for sharing of car model not available in Singapore. It is not necessary that the car must be something exotic, very rare or for that matter, cost you an arm and leg (well, every car here cost us an arm and leg already...) I still remembered in the early 90s (during the pre-internet era), when I made my first overseas trip to Europe, I was like a mountain tortoise, staring at every car model on the street, and spending half of my photo films shooting nothing but just "rare" cars that I have never seen in Singapore, hahaha OK, let me start the ball rolling, and these few are high on my list (and many more to come)... BMW X1 LWB. I am a sucker for LWB model, as the additional leg room in the rear make the car feel a class high than standard wheelbase model. BMW 5 Series LWB. Who will need a 7 Series if we can have this model... 3rd Generation Honda Accord (JDM). I am also a fan of pop up headlight... Honda Odyssey (USDM). This make it a very good competitor to the Alphard and like... Kia Grand Carnival. Another great looking full size MPV... 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir. A direct competitor to the highly acclaimed Mazda CX9...
  13. Hey everyone, So I’m new to the forum and was wondering what builds you all could suggest to go up against (but hopefully crush) the new 2018 gt and ss 1le. The Chevy runs 4.1 to the fords 4.4 0-60 and both run mid 12 second quarter mile times. I understand both cars are around 50k usd but I’m looking to spend around 40-45k usd. I was looking at maybe importing the gt-r bnr 32 but with costs up to 35k usd that eats up most of the swap/mod budget. I’m looking for something that’s obviously street legal, most importantly reliable, and something I’m not going to have to spend half of a year looking for a specific model/year so something easy to to find with abundant aftermarket support. Thanks!

    10 most popular used car posts in November

    Looking for a used car and have no idea which one's cool to get? Or want to know how you can make your car more visible in the sea of used cars on sale? Here's a recap of our 10 most popular used cars posted in November. While some of them are sold, there are still cars out there for sale! Do note that the cars shown here are not ranked in order of popularity. 2009 Honda Civic Mugen RR One of the only two units in town and only 300 units in the world. There are probably more Paganis in Singapore... Only true Honda fans will want one. 1993 Mazda RX-7 Efini One of Japan's all-time greats. Likely to have less than 10 units in Singapore. This particular unit has been spot welded to increase body rigidity. 2007 Mitsubishi Evolution 10 GSR 60 grand worth of parts spent on this blue chrome-wrapped Evo X. Not for those who want to be discreet. 2012 BMW M Series M3 Sedan Here's a good example of how we would do up a V8 M3. A good tune with an Akrapovic Exhaust will definitely make the car a better drive. 2017 Ford Focus RS 2.5M One of the best hot hatches on sale. Enough said. 2009 BMW 1 Series 135i Coupe The mod list on this 500bhp 135i Coupe is pretty extensive. You could say whatever could have been upgraded, had been upgraded. Should be quite a beast to pilot. 1998 Subaru Impreza WRX 2.0M This is a very rare WRC 555 special edition WRX according to the ad. Engine has also been strengthened for a power upgrade. 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution 10 GSR Street-tuned Evo X for those that want a good balance of practicality and driving fun. 2006 Lexus IS250 Luxury For those into the stance culture, this is the perfect car for you. Comes with quite a bit of other mods, too, apart from the air suspension. 2008 Nissan GT-R 3.8A Have a need for speed? With 700bhp, you should have more than enough power for use in Singapore.

    Evo Owners

    Good day brothers and sisters.. It's been long since I last appeared here in MCF.. I'm just curious.. Just got a white EVO 9 GSR not too long ago.. Just renewed COE for it.. Any other EVO owners around here in MCF? Will be nice to learn from you guys..
  17. Hi, I would like to reach out to all of you who owns a JDM sports car meet, like how our neighbours have it. Even if yours is not a sport car but of rarity, please include yourself in too. We could mass order parts which would be cheaper to buy and ship from the same distributor in Japan, US or UK. TUNING? Aim is to bring back the nostalgic sports car meets back in the days of Kallang Carpark. Drift outings or practice Autox, Gymkana at our neighbours or safe location. Which may have a food destination. If you are feeling charitable we could organise something for social welfare as well. Is an open discussion and I would like to start the ball rolling. It also would be interesting to see what gems we have in Singapore as well. If your car is not in there like Daihatsu or Datsun, kindly include. Honda Mazda 1. Mazda RX-8 Type RS - Sw20 Mitsubishi Nissan Toyota Subaru

  19. President of Japan's auto maker Suzuki Motor, Osamu Suzuki (right), poses as he introduces the company's new mini sports ulility vehicle (SUV) called Hustler at a press conference in Tokyo on Dec 24, 2013. Suzuki Motor Corp had little idea that the name "Hustler" for its new, boxy minicar aimed at outdoorsy Japanese customers might cause mirth among English speakers for its association with an adult magazine - but it's not alone. Plucking words from foreign dictionaries without checking how they might be received by native speakers appears to be a habit at Japanese companies, which have produced countless products with unintentionally unsavoury names. The name Hustler was chosen to conjure the image of agility, as well as invite nostalgia from customers who remembered an off-road motorbike released in 1969 called the Hustler 250, said a Suzuki public relations officer. Foreign visitors might instead recall the sexually explicit magazine started by porn magnate Larry Flynt as competition to Playboy, or associate the word with obtaining money through illegal activities or vice industries. The Hustler follows a string of other Japan-made cars to bemuse speakers of foreign languages, such as Daihatsu Motor Co Ltd's Naked in 2000 and Isuzu Motors Ltd's 1983 Bighorn. Spanish speakers were taken aback by Mazda Motor Corp's Laputa, a derogatory word for sex worker, while Mitsubishi Motors Corp sold its Pajero model as the Montero in Spanish-speaking countries as the former is slang for sexual self-pleasure. Japanese confectionery often yields a chuckle from foreign tourists, too. A tubular chocolate snack called Collon and an isotonic sports drink named Pocari Sweat, for example, bear unfortunate associations with bodily functions. While many brand names around the world don't translate across borders - the Iranian washing powder Barf, which means snow in Persian, or a Swedish chocolate bar called Plopp, for example - Japanese companies often use foreign words for how they sound, with little regard to their original meaning. This is partly due to foreign words having an exotic ring, much like how Chinese characters are seen by Westerners as poetic or profound choices for tattoos even if the results don't make much sense to native speakers. But Japanese firms often fail to check if a name 'travels' because of historical reasons, marketers say. "Japan really is an island nation, and was historically closed for a long time. Also, the domestic market is so big that companies can be successful without thinking globally," said Masamichi Nakamura, executive director at global marketing firm Interbrand's branch in Tokyo. But Japan is far from having a patent on unintentionally salacious brand names: websites like Engrish.com revel in strange uses of English across Asia, including neighbouring South Korea's snack maker Lotte Confectionary Co Ltd's Crunky Ball Nude.

    CX7 / RAV4 / Murano / CRV

    Hello everyone, I'm currently driving a Nov '05 Optra and wishes to upgrade to a SUV. I have done my sums and have shortlisted these 4 '07/08 models: 2007 Mazda CX-7 2.3 Turbo with Sunroof 2008 Nissan Murano 2.5 with Sunroof 2007 Toyota RAV4 2.4 with Sunroof 2007 Honda CRV 2.4 with Sunroof Please give me your honest feedback as to which model I should pick. As I am looking at about 7 year old rides, I am more concerned about their reliability. Fuel economy is less of a concern for me as my fuel bills are paid for by the company that I am working for. My brain tells me to go with RAV4 or CRV, but my heart prefers Murano and the CX7 for their added amenities. Thank you in advance for your kind advice! (:
  23. Hi Any bro can advise where to get a used jdm Camry headlight at good price?
  24. HI all Can any Toyota Camry JDM owners ACV40 confirm if the location of the oil filter is at the front of the Engine bay as shown in this image below (see attachment). I've seen that in that the US Camry the oil filter is at the bottom. Do you need specialise tools to remove the oil filter?
