  1. OK, time for a tutorial session. Many have suggested to have a thread to showcase how to navigate and use the carious functions on the new MCF platform. We hear you! I will share what I know here (just like you, I am still exploring things), but seek your understanding that I am not able to post everything over a short period of time, as after all, I can only do it when I have some free time. Aside to @pChou @kobayashiGT @BabyBlade, do let me know if I have shared any incorrect information (especially if a particular function is only available for use by moderators ). For a start, this is how to search for post / topic made my a particular member. Go to the member's profile and click on the "See their activity" tab on the right hand side of the member's profile page.  You will see a list of option on the left hand side of the screen. Click on "Topics" to see threads started by the member Click on "Posts" to see posts made by the member
  2. 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!

    MCF Hangout with Motul x Subaru

    Over 30 MCF members with their loved ones arrived at the Subaru showroom in Leng Kee last Saturday, in the latest edition of MCF Hangout in partnership with Motul and Subaru. The hangout with French lubricant brand Motul and Subaru isn’t a random occurrence. Motul and Motor Image, exclusive distributor of Subaru cars in Singapore, has held a partnership for many years. In 2008, Motul, along with Motor Image Rally Team (MIRT) developed the Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC) Team Racing Oil. 100% fully synthetic, the APRC Team Racing Oil is specially made for MIRT’s cars racing in hot Asian climates. Just earlier this year, Motul and Motor Image announced that it will supply an exclusive line of lubricant products to its customers. Developed in Japan, the new Subaru engine oils by Motul are specially tailored for the brand’s boxer engines. MCF members also got a chance to learn more about Subaru’s range of cars on offer, as well as Subaru’s EyeSight safety assistance systems at the event, too. Member of the Editorial team at sgCarMart, Idris Talib, shared his experience using Motul’s 5W-30 engine oil for his Subaru Forester XT after a service at Motor Image. Idris mentioned that he was previously running 5W-40 oil, based on recommendations from friends and workshop owners. “Many have told me to use 5W-40, as turbocharged engines run hotter and require thicker oil. But upon using Motul and Subaru’s 5W-30 offering, I was getting better performance, improved fuel consumption and never had issues with engine oil temperatures” At the event, Senior Manager - Regional Product Planning at Motor Image Enterprises Pte Ltd, David Ting, shared more on the benefits and abilities of EyeSight Technology. He also answered questions on the technology from MCF members. EyeSight’s Driver Assist Technology includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management, as well as Lane Departure Warning. According to David, these systems can function to alert and mitigate collisions from speeds as slow as 1km/h, up to a top speed of 200km/h. After the sharing session, MCF members also had a chance to experience the safety assistance systems at work with a live demonstration, using a Subaru Forester equipped with EyeSight. Later in the day, MCF members were also treated to a lucky draw session, where three members walked away with limited edition Subaru WRX STI collectible models worth $50.

    MCF Hangout with INFINITI

    Over 40 MyCarForum (MCF) members gathered at the INFINITI showroom on Leng Kee Road last Saturday, to get up close and personal with the new INFINITI All-New QX50. Particularly unique about the All-New QX50 is that it offers INFINITI’s VC-Turbo engine, the world’s first variable compression engine in a mass production car. To get MCF members to know more, Isaac Tan, Product Specialist of INFINITI, was on hand to chat a little bit more on how it all works, including sharing about its other advanced features such as its Active Torque Rod vibration cancelling engine mounts, and the All-New QX50’s safety assistance features. Idris Talib, from sgCarMart’s Editorial Team, also shared his experience driving the INFINITI QX50, and how it fares against other mid-sized SUVs in the market. Aside from checking out the QX50 and the rest of the range INFINITI has to offer, MCF members at the event also stood a chance to win attractive lucky draw prizes. MCF members also checked out the QX80, a large SUV with a lot of road presence. Isaac shared how the All-New QX50's Active Torque Rod works to cancel out vibrations from transmitting into the cabin, with a strategically placed active engine mount. Idris also shared his experience driving the All-New QX50, and how the car offers a spirited drive despite having a CVT transmission. That wasn't all the activities at the showroom. Participants also played a round of Bingo! One lucky MCF member walked away with the grand lucky draw prize, a weekend driveaway with the INFINITI All-New QX50, worth $1,000.

    MCF China

    I noticed that there are a few MCF-ers here who have left our sunny island and gone to the Motherland, for work or other opportunities. To tell you guys a secret, I am now also one of them. I started a new job in January and am now based in Shanghai, It's been quite an interesting experience so far living and working in China (although Shanghai is not very much diff from Singapore, other than the cold winter weather) I'm guessing this can be a thread for all of us who are based in China, to gather, talk cock, chit chat and share tips. Not sure if this is the appropriate place to put this though.
  7. The most modern technology used in internal combustion engines currently is Variable compression ratio engine ( VCR ). As the name suggests, the motor may alter the compression ratio under operating circumstances. The technology had existed as a prototype for the previous few years. Currently, Infiniti (the luxury brand of Nissan) is prepared to display its VCR engine, the first ready-to-produce VCR engine, to be exhibited in the 2016 Paris Motor Show. 2016 Paris Motor Show by Maxime Joly, on Flickr Why need a VCR engine? Generally, a traditional petrol engine makes more power from a specified engine size using a turbocharger. In a Diesel engine, Turbocharging's approach looks excellent, as they operate heterogeneously injecting more fuel into denser air. On the other hand, petrol engines do not have the flexibility like diesel engines; a petrol engine's mixing power impacts engine efficiency. Detonation and knocking prevail when the turbocharger boosts over specific concentrations as the general compression ratio rises (piston compress + turbo-added pressure).The first solution to the issue may be to use a reduced engine compression ratio so that more dense air can deliver to the turbo. However, the downside is that lowering the percentage of compression can affect the economy of petrol. Hence the designer must trade-off some Compression ratio for power and rest for the economy. A variable compression ratio engine The main characteristic of the engine is to use a compression ratio of 14 at the lower throttle and low speeds while cruising. So you can achieve the highest fuel economy. The compression ratio of the cylinder falls to about 8:1 during acceleration or high-velocity acceleration, this is also the case when the turbo kicks in. Turbo, therefore, rams more air into the engine, making it more powerful. Infiniti patented such systems at the end of 2001. It is also possible to operate the VC-T (Variable Compression Turbo) motor on Atkinson cycles. Currently, the VC-Turbo engine is paired in INFINITI QX50, a luxury compact SUV that can rival the likes of Lexus NX, Volvo XC40 and Mercedes Benz GLC. "It's currently one of the most affordable premium mid-sized SUV in the market right now" - Julian Kho, Editor of sgCarMart.

  9. Don't worry, we are not making it compulsory for all to adopt a dog, or crowdfund to build a bridge, but just something very simple, and doable by most, if not all MCFers. Of late, it have came to our attention that makan thread has been showcasing non-edible stuff, hobby thread slowly transforming into an advertising platform, piak piak and vulgarities becoming a norm in almost every other thread, and even cat fight going on in a thread created for pet lovers.

I would like to remind you that MCF is an open forum for members from all walk of life to share their knowledge / experience, raise meaningful queries, and be engaged in healthy discussions.

    MCF MarkDown with Skoda

    More than 75 MyCarForum (MCF) members, together with their partners and family, gathered at the Skoda showroom at 26 Leng Kee Road on Saturday for yet another entertaining MCF MarkDown with Skoda. It was during this time when everyone present got the opportunity to get up close and personal with the comprehensive range of Skoda cars, such as the Octavia and the Karoq. Given that young families and several enthusiastic fans of MCF MarkDown made up the crowd that morning, it was natural to see them so eager to learn more about the cars from the Czech Republic carmaker. sgCarMart Editor, Julian Kho, also took this opportunity to share with the guests his experience with the Skoda Octavia and the Skoda Karoq. More importantly, he gave his honest opinions about how he feels about the Octavia. “With its well-engineered and well-thought out development, the Skoda Octavia may have discovered its own spectrum of remarkability. It’s the sort of car that’s made by the common people, for the common people,” Julian said. More excitingly for the guests, they were given the opportunity to test drive a number of Skoda models, such as the Octavia 1.4, Octavia RS245, Karoq, Kodiaq and even the Rapid Spaceback - all done to allow them to have a personal touch and to let the guests have a feel of the cars themselves. Skoda has proven to be a suitable brand for families. Needless to say, like all MCF Hangouts, guests were treated to a mouth-watering buffet spread, as well a variety of activities to spice up the day, including quizes. Guests also took back a goody bag to remember the event by.

Along with test driving the new 1.3-litre and 1.5-litre Perodua Myvi, guests were also treated to an extensive buffet spread, as well a variety of games and activities to spice up the day.

    MCF Hangout with Jetabout Holidays

    Over 60 MyCarForum (MCF) members gathered at CoSpace Park, at Science Park Road to attend the latest MCF Hangout with Jetabout Holidays. The event proved to be a learning opportunity to MCF members who want to head for self-drive holidays and tours in Tasmania. Jetabout Holidays is an established travel agency that provides various well-priced and all inclusive tour packages that include self-drives and group tours in and around Tasmania. For self-drive packages, it includes vehicle rental, too. Tasmania is known for its beautiful landscapes. Despite being Australia’s smallest state, it is geographically diverse with over 40% of land area reserved for national parks and wilderness areas. MCF members who attended the event also received goodie bags from Jetabout Holidays, and one lucky draw winner walked away with a $200 travel voucher. sgCarMart Deputy Editor, Nigel Yong, was on hand to share his thoughts on driving overseas. As shared by Nigel, a Singapore driving licence is recognised in Australia. For other types of driving licences, as long as the driving licence is in English and you have over a year of driving experience, it will be recognised. According to Nigel, driving in Australia is very similar to Singapore, and drivers are courteous. But he did mention that speed limits, as well as the usage of seat belts for drivers and passengers are regularly enforced. During the event, Jansen Chua, Associate Instructor at the Canon Imaging Academy, also shared some tips on how to capture great photos. During the last Tasmania self-drive trip, holiday makers managed to capture a glimpse of the Southern Lights. Fiona Lee from Tourism Tasmania was also on hand to share more on what one can expect from Tasmania's vast geographical diversity. The event ended off with a food tasting experience. MCF members had a chance to taste food and drinks that is unique to the region, like Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey.

    MCF Hangout with Citroen

    80 MyCarForum (MCF) members and their loved ones gathered at Masons at Gillman Barracks on Saturday afternoon to celebrate Christmas with Citroen Singapore. Aside from a sumptuous brunch, the event was an opportunity for MCF members to learn more about the Citroen brand and its latest range, in particular its C3 Aircross, which is in the running for sgCarMart's Compact Crossover of the Year 2018. During the event, sgCarMart's Deputy Editor Nigel Yong shared his experience driving the C3 Aircross, which he describes as 'a quirky-looking compact crossover that's highly practical'. "The C3 Aircross, with its pudgy proportions, slatted rear quarter glass and animated two-tier headlamps, is so unorthodox that you can't help but love it. And thanks to the PSA Group's PureTech 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine that powers it, supplying 110bhp and 205Nm of torque to the front wheels, there's enough spirited performance for zipping around town. More importantly, the amount of storage bins and cup holders on offer meet the standards of its class, while its 410-litre boot is big enough for a family's needs," he said. Dave Wong, Senior Manager Sales & Marketing, Cycle & Carriage France, continued by giving the guests further insights into the rest of Citroen's history, technology and range, which currently comprises the C4 Cactus and Grand C4 SpaceTourer, too. At the same time, guests had the opportunity to test drive the full range of Citroen models, while those who were waiting for their turns enjoyed quizzes and a round of Bingo. Of course, in the spirit of giving, some lucky MCF members also walked away with attractive Christmas hampers. All smiles behind the wheel of the Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer! sgCarMart's Deputy Editor Nigel Yong shares what he likes about the C3 Aircross. Guests learn more about the Citroen brand and its products from Dave Wong, Senior Manager Sales & Marketing, Cycle & Carriage France. Tummies have to be filled! Fun and games for guests of all ages! In true MCF Hangout tradition, everyone goes home happy! Those who have graced the event, and have yet to pen down their reviews of the Citroen cars they drove, can submit one here!

    Richest man in MCF

    It's a boring Friday........and since there is a star award going on.......let's have some fun in guessing who is the richest guy in MCF.........those old Farkers who always compare income tax I think you guys outdated liao..............i just saw we have a new kid on the block.............he can buy 40 BMW F10 in cash............ @throttle2 pay cash just got a whole new meaning............ come come............let's guess the RICHEST MAN IN MCF.............
  18. Is it just me or is MCF really becoming quiet like a ghost town? Where we used to have a few hundred viewers viewing a hot thread (max I have seen was 1000 at TDON thread), we now have less than 50, and that is also rare, mayb COE threads get that number on those closing days, I saw like 30 over at the exercise thread. Not only viewer rates is down, members participation rate is also down, where we used to have a few thousand posts recorded in a day, I hardly see more than 500 posts recorded now. I remember if you post less than 50 in a day, you cannot even see yourself on the top 20 posters list, now 10 posts get you onto the list, and 50 usually make you the top poster of the day. Anyone knows what has happened or what is happening? Many ppl left? no new members? no interesting topics? replaced by technology? Or is MCF outdated? Any one notice anything? or doing anything about it? or we just let it carry on until no post no view and do an al lang syne?

  21. there is something unusual in MCF? The admin and moderator team has been very quiet in the past weeks. - Winner for HTOTM has not been announced (usually within 1st week of the month) - Winner for MWTOTM has also not been announced (we are less than a week away from a new month) - No response with regards to security concerns in MCF and other SPH site - No response to the feedback provided in the newbie and feedback thread - Last but not least, a few requests I have made to MCF's 3 (@pchou @babyblade @kobayashigt) was not attended to... I hope I am just being overly sensitive... Long Life MCF!!!

    Faces of MCF: Up-and-coming newbie kdash

    The love for cars transcends all boundaries. Just the other night when I was washing my car, a little nod of acknowledgement turned into a conversation that could've passed for one between two long-lost friends, between a 37-year old Toyota 86 owner and myself, who have never met prior. My other half struggles to understand this. How can people from different social, geographical and cultural backgrounds, of different age groups, get together and talk for hours on end about metal boxes on four wheels? But cars are more than that. Cars are special things that can unite mankind better than any religion in the world. The love for cars can begin from as young an age as one, till the day we die. And thanks to the availability of online forums, car enthusiasts have a place to pour their hearts out, whether it's advice for the next mod, best makan places to drive to, or anything under the sun, really. One such forum is MyCarForum (MCF), the official forum of sgCarMart.com. And one rather special member is Mr. Zhou, better known as kdash. A 30-year old civil engineer and a father of two, kdash's love for cars began in the 80s. "I am a sucker for manual 80s and 90s cars from the time when I was growing up and also 'pop-culture' cars such as the DeLorean DMC-12 (Back to the Future); the Toyota AE86, the Mazda RX-7 FD3S and the Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 (Initial D)," he says. As a relatively new car owner who's on his second Toyota Sienta, kdash joined MCF to learn more about cars and at the same time, to make new friends. After joining, he was encouraged by some forum members who responded positively to his 'newbie' questions and that prompted him to continue being active in MCF. He believes that MCF provides an excellent platform where people can ask questions, learn about a particular subject or two and browse through previous posts to find the answers they seek. A big draw for kdash is the many experienced car enthusiasts active on MCF who are ready, willing and able to answer his questions and share their personal opinions on new cars, car maintenance and the car industry in general. "There are also threads on other non car-related topics, and MCF members are generally quick to help and give advice. The various opinions and views shared on many topics also help to give me a broader and more balanced view of the issues discussed." Of course, in return, he also does his part to contribute positively to the forum as much as he can. With MCF, kdash found a community of active forum members who are friendly and ready to accept newcomers like himself. The MCF members actively discuss the various hot topics of the day, and are always ready to share a joke and not take things too seriously. In his daily surfing of MCF so far, there are always funny, interesting and encouraging posts, which make his day and compels him to come back day after day. Like many, kdash is appreciative and respectful of all the views of senior members and most importantly, he likes that everyone knows when to be serious and when to relax and joke around. "I believe that as time passes, people will be able to get a glimpse of who you are by what you post, and that fosters the friendship and familiarity, which I see in MCF currently for the regulars. I feel that I am generally accepted in the forum, and encouraged to find and meet like-minded individuals here." That newfound friendship, however, is not limited to the web. After two months of joining MCF, kdash managed to make friends and got involved in some of the informal activities like meet-ups, lunches, and even a running group. "It is always good to be able to put a face to some of the members and get to know one another better so that we can better understand the context when someone posts in the forum," he says. With all the interactions and interest in MCF, kdash hopes that MCF will continue to be around for many years to come, and hopes to also be able to contribute positively to that effect. Like the Toyota 86 owner I met while washing my car, kdash and the other MCF members prove that the love for cars transcends all boundaries. And judging from that love, you won’t have to hope hard, kdash.

    Will SPH Retrenchment impact MCF

    With reference to: http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/sph-starts-retrenching-staff I wonder if MCF will be impacted since the main cash cow is SGCARMART and not us. Will MCF be shut down or be sold-off?
