    2019 All new Mazda 3

    Official drawings of the 2019 Mazda3 – keep in mind that at this time, we don’t know if it will be sold as a 2019MY or 2020MY in the U.S.A. and Canada. The new “3” will employ Mazda’s latest Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture. The platform is said to be stronger while providing a much better ride quality. But the big news for the fourth-generation “3” is the debut of Mazda’s new SkyActiv-X gasoline enginefeaturing Spark Controlled Compression Ignition. This innovative four-cylinder unit combines characteristics of diesel and regular gasoline engines, using spark plug ignition to “control compression ignition”. In short, it ignites the fuel-air mixture similar to a diesel engine promising to combine the fuel efficiency of the former with all the benefits of a gasoline unit, without the emissions penalty. Mazda forecasts an output of around 190 horsepower with 170 lb-ft (230Nm) of peak torque from the 2.0-liter version. That puts it well above today’s 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G that delivers 155hp and 150 lb-ft (203Nm) and on par with the bigger 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G with 184hp and 185 lb-ft (250Nm). The difference here is that Mazda is targeting at least a 20 percent improvement in fuel economy and up to 25 percent less carbon dioxide emissions over the current Skyactive G engines.

    Perodua Myvi 2018

    Seems like nobody started on the 2018 Perodua Myvi after searching through the folders . Perodua is going to launch the 2018 myvi (3rd generation)on 16/11/2017 The new car is slated to be vastly improved from its current model ,being outdated in terms of safety and specs. However, the new car is going to rectify all those flaws ,making the wrongs right. The car comes in the usual 1.3 and 1.5L engine guise and the tranny options are just a manual 5 speeder shifter or a dinosaur age 4 speed self shifter(yawn) Features in the 1.3L guise 1.3L Dual VVT-i four cylinder (94bhp/121Nm) 1.3L Standard G (Malaysian spec) Four speed auto or five speed manual LED headlamps (auto on/off, follow me home function) Headlight leveling LED tail lamps with LED light guides Reverse sensors 14 inch alloy wheels Keyless entry and push button ignition 8+1 seat configuration 60 : 40 folding rear seats Side pockets on the front seats (mobile phone usage only) Four airbags ABS, EBD, VSC, Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) Five year or 150,000km warranty 1.3L Premium X (Malaysian spec) Four speed auto only LED headlamps (auto on/off, follow me home function) Headlight leveling LED tail lamps with LED light guides Reverse sensors 14 inch alloy wheels Keyless entry and push button ignition 8+1 seat configuration 60 : 40 folding rear seats Side pockets on the front seats (mobile phone usage only) Four airbags ABS, EBD, VSC, Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) Five year or 150,000km warranty Eco-idle stop/start system Other exterior trim (Unconfirmed) Features in the 1.5L guise 1.5L Dual VVT-i four cylinder (106bhp/140Nm) 1.5L High (Malaysian spec) Four speed auto only LED headlamps (auto on/off, follow me home function) Headlight leveling LED tail lamps with LED light guides Reverse sensors 15 inch dual-tone alloy wheels Keyless entry and push button ignition 8+1 seat configuration 60 : 40 folding rear seats Side pockets on the front seats (mobile phone usage only) ABS, EBD, VSC, Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) Five year or 150,000km warranty Eco-idle stop/start system Other exterior trim (Unconfirmed) Front bodykit and side skirts in a dual-tone finish Two tone rear bumper Rear spoiler Built-in toll reader (Integrated SmartTag) Six airbags 1.5L Advance (Malaysian spec) Four speed auto only LED headlamps (auto on/off, follow me home function) Headlight leveling LED tail lamps with LED light guides Reverse sensors 15 inch dual-tone alloy wheels Keyless entry and push button ignition 8+1 seat configuration 60 : 40 folding rear seats Side pockets on the front seats (mobile phone usage only) ABS, EBD, VSC, Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) Five year or 150,000km warranty Eco-idle stop/start system Other exterior trim (Unconfirmed) Front bodykit and side skirts in a dual-tone finish Two tone rear bumper Rear spoiler Built-in toll reader (Integrated SmartTag) Six airbags Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) Pre-collision warning (PCW) Pre-collision braking (PCB) (Low speed autonomous braking) Front Departure Alert (FDA) Pedal Misoperation Control (PMC) Price in Malaysia ranges from RM 44,300 to RM 55,300 Colours available:Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Mystical Purple and Lava Red,Peppermint Green (1.3 only), Granite Gray(1.5 only) For what I think, this car, if it were to be imported, would be a force to reckoned with as it is so value for money that in the high spec guise, shames the Mitsubishi Space Star other than its brand name. If there is anything to add in after which, I will add in here. Moderators, if you all feel that there should not be a all new Myvi thread for the all new Myvi 2018, please kindly transfer it to an old topic. Thanks.

    New BMW M3 and M4 to get manual gearbox

    Thankfully, BMW has confirmed that its upcoming M3 sedan and M4 coupe will be available with a manual transmission. As reported by BMW Blog and Carscoops, BMW M Chief Executive Markus Flasch announced the news when he was asked in an interview whether or not there will be any surprises for BMW fans with the new M3 and M4. It’s a bit early to disclose all the details but something I want to highlight is that we will have a manual stick shift,” he said. “We have already disclosed we will have the option of four-wheel drive. We’ve not decided which variant, which system, but everything that’s on our current lineup; think of the M5; can be made available. The M3 and M4, I’ve driven the pre-production cars already and they’re fantastic.” Flaschadded on, “Manual is very important. The manual stick shift is not a performance-bringer, because an automatic transmission is just faster, you can ask any race driver,” he said. “But it gives the vehicle character and I kind of compare it to people who love mechanical watches; it isn’t more precise and it doesn’t have any advantage at all but it’s a character feature. So is a stick shift.” There is no confirmation on whether the M3/4's all-wheel drive system will have a rear-wheel drive mode like the M5, but we would be surprised if it didn't.

    The all new BMW X7

    The all new top of the line BMW X7, said to launch in 2018. A truly full size 6 seats SUV, will it reach our shore? Anyone interested in this car?
  8. Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo has a go in the new Renault Megane R.S. Trophy-R at Goodwood. Interestingly, he chooses to go sideways up the hill. We have no idea why he did so but instead of going flat out on the hillclimb, Ricciardo choses to go sliding with the handbrake at relatively low speeds. We are sure he is having fun and we are also pretty sure the rear tyres is going to have a few flat spots after this peculiar run. As for the car, it is the current record holder at the Nurburgring for the fastest production front-wheel drive car and compared to the Megane R.S. Trophy, the Trophy-R is 130kg lighter and with 296bhp, the car will complete the century sprint in 5.4 seconds. It tops out at 262km/h and is only available with a six-speed manual gearbox.
  9. Kinda sad that it is hard to find nowadays new cars with manual transmissions. Can anyone enlighten if one can still buy a MIT, MIJ or MIK manual transmission sedan?
  10. We all know the Land Rover Defender is coming and it seems like someone has managed to take a photo of it without camouflage. Leaked online through a number of Land Rover forums before making its way onto Twitter, the photo is actually a photo of the new Defender’s digital gauge cluster. From that digital side view of the new SUV, we can see that it is more modern and rounded than its predecessor. We also noticed that there seem to be a small side window incorporated into the roof much like some of its previous variants. The new Defender will be using a revised version of the MLA platform used by the likes of the Range Rover Sport and Land Rover Discovery, with engines options probably similar to those cars too. The car is expected to be debut globally in September.

    Toyota releases new TRD parts for GR Supra

    Good news for future GR Supra owners, Toyota has released new TRD parts for your car. However, the majority of its parts are meant for its aerodynamics. First seen on the TRD GR Supra Performance Line Concept, the parts include the front carbon fibre spoiler that is supposed to reduce lift at high speed and lowers the ride height by 14mm. The side skirts do the same and makes the car lower as compared to stock by 4mm. We aren't so sure about the side door garnish which was designed to smoothly direct airflow to the rear end of the Supra. It makes the coupe look less sleek with it on in our opinion. Moving to the rear, the carbon fibre diffuser reduces ride height by 24mm, aiming to produce downforce in conjunction with the new boot spoiler. The forged aluminum wheels are new too and are 19-inch in size. These parts are only available in Japan for now and unfortunately, there are no performance parts that would increase its power output yet.
  12. hmmmmmmm sth brewing? @tianmo https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/a-level-results-students-apply-polytechnic-skip-semester-courses-11245456 Singapore A-Level results out next Friday; graduates who opt for polytechnics can skip semester image: data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw== File photo of students at Singapore Polytechnic. (Photo: TODAY) 15 Feb 2019 11:22AM (Updated: 15 Feb 2019 12:21PM) Share this content BookmarkSINGAPORE: The results of the GCE A-Level examinations will be released next Friday (Feb 22), the Ministry of Education (MOE) said on Friday. Students may collect their results from their schools from 2.30pm on that day, while private candidates will be notified of their results by post. The ministry also announced on Friday that A-Level graduates who choose to further their studies at polytechnics can now skip the first semester for more than 100 courses. Currently, most A-Level graduates apply for and enrol in a polytechnic only one year after getting their results. This is because most polytechnic admissions exercises would have closed by the time the A-Level results are announced. READ: O-Level grades will no longer form part of admission scores for Poly grads applying to NUS, NTU from 2020From Academic Year 2019, eligible A-Level graduates can be admitted directly to Year 1 Semester 2 each October for 110 polytechnic courses, up from the current nine. This will reduce their polytechnic course from three years to two-and-a-half years. Advertisement The 110 courses make up about half the diploma courses offered by the five polytechnics, and span several course clusters. “A-Level graduates who are not enlisting in National Service will be able to enter the polytechnics in the same year that they receive their A-Level results. As a result, this group will be able to graduate one year earlier,” MOE said. image: https://www.channelnewsasia.com/image/11245562/0x0/819/511/72007b68a9c769b719a86efa69bb462d/Df/polytechnic-admission-for-a-level-infographic.jpg Source: Ministry of Education Interested A-Level graduates will be able to apply to the polytechnics directly for these 110 courses in mid-August, for matriculation at the start of AY2019 Semester 2 in October this year. More details will be available on the respective polytechnics’ websites by March 2019. 200 A-LEVEL GRADUATES ENROL IN POLYTECHNICS ANNUALLY Places for A-Level graduates will be separately catered for, and there will be no impact on the number of places for O-Level graduates or ITE graduates, MOE said. "The number of places for A-Level graduates will depend on the demand from and quality of applicants, and hence will vary from year to year," it said. According to the ministry, about 200 A-Level graduates are admitted each year to the five local polytechnics – Nanyang, Ngee Ann, Republic, Singapore and Temasek. "These are students who are keen to pursue an applied pathway at the polytechnics, that matches their area of interest or aptitude," it said, adding that the number includes both A-Level graduates who have applied and those who did not apply to the local universities. READ: Better pay, job prospects for polytechnic graduates in 2018: SurveyFor most polytechnic courses, A-Level graduates would need passes in two relevant H2 subjects to receive module exemptions. These requirements may differ for specific courses. Courses which offer module exemption have "sufficient commonalities" between the A-Level and polytechnic curriculums, MOE said. The exemptions are mostly for polytechnic foundational modules, and students would have covered similar curriculum in preparing for the A-Levels. For example, A-Level graduates in Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Diploma in Information Technology may be exempted from the modules on Computing Mathematics and Programming 1 if they have passed H2 Computing or Computing Science, and H2 Mathematics. Similarly, A-Level graduates in Temasek Polytechnic’s Common Engineering Programme may be exempted from the modules on Engineering Mathematics 1, Engineering Physics, Digital Fundamentals 1 and Circuit Analysis if they have passed H2 Mathematics and H2 Physics.

    2019 Subaru Legacy

    The New Subaru Legacy has finally been revealed in Chigago Auto Show last night. Exterior seems more like a facelift but is actually new. Interior takes a huge step forward. Looks premium. And for US, they will get the 2.4 litre turbo. Wonder if the Japan domestic market will have this turbo engine other than the improved 2.5 litre engine when it is launched. Since the Legacy has been revealed and will only be on sale in the States in September this year, perhaps in a few months time, will get to see the Outback. Report and photos: https://www.motor1.com/news/304260/2020-subaru-legacy-chicago-debut/ A preview video of the new Legacy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_OfuWfZh24&t=214s

    Question on general PPS

    1. Does pps just make washing easier or it offer significant advantages? 2. Can frequent manual waxing achieve the same result as pps? 3. I understand frm one detailer, dust n dirt can penetrate wax and might damage the paint but not pps. 4. I understand frm one detailer waxing might damage clear coating whereas pps protect it. 5. I understand from my thread here ppl claim pps protect against fine scratches and swirl mark 6. The avg price of high end pps reach 800 to 1k. Is service available for remove and respray of clear coat.? If yes, what's the avg price. If similar, won't respray be a better option?
  19. some time back was doing alignment for the old car, was talking to the alignment guy and he said some new cars (certain models/brands) alignment is off... wonder if its true
  20. Azizul Hj Tandek, managing director of Enggang Keramat Automobile, told paultan.org that the company will be launching a new Malaysian car brand called SAF – named after the arrangement of Muslims in prayer – in April this year. The new lineup will consist of rebadged versions of models from the Chinese brand Foday, namely the Lion F22 pick-up truck and the Landfort seven-seater SUV. The two vehicles will be badged as the SAF Striker and SAF Landfort respectively, and will look identical to the Foday models, albeit with SAF badging. Both models will be built at Oriental Assemblers in Tampoi, Johor, the same company that also assembles Chery models in Malaysia. Only one engine will be available from launch – a Mitsubishi-derived 4G69S4N 2.4 litre petrol engine delivering 134 hp at 5,250 rpm and 200 Nm of torque from 2,500 to 3,000 rpm. Five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions are on offer, as is a choice of either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive (Striker pick-up will be 4×4 only). The Striker is expected to be priced below RM100,000, while the Landfort SUV is slated to cost less than RM150,000. Exact kit has yet to be decided, but both models should come with dual airbags and ABS with EBD; no stability control on offer, however. Enggang Keramat is looking at an initial run of 100 units for each model when the brand is launched next month, available at 20 dealers nationwide – all 3S centres – in both Peninsular and East Malaysia. http://paultan.org/2016/02/29/new-malaysian-brand-saf-to-launch-april-striker-pick-up-and-landfort-suv-to-be-based-on-foday-models/
  21. Well.... I drove my Mazda 3 SP for a good 10 years. Scrapped it and finally got a new car. Stay in HDB with an open space car park Based on experience, new cars always end up getting scratched. I knew it will happen soon. Just didn't expect it to be so soon..... Though I'm annoyed, I'm at the age where I feel for the culprit. He must have felt so sick in the mind to do something like that and to do it so quickly within a few hours of me getting the car. Just for the record. The car was perfectly mint when I collected it. So don't point finger at AD. God have mercy on him/her.

    2nd hand tyre vs 1st hand tyre

    Hi guys and gals, Do you all prefer to change to a 2nd hand or insist on 1st hand? Regards, Michael2828
  23. good news indeed that our earth has some hope, read on to know more. cheers! New 'Mutant Enzymes' Could Solve Earth's Plastics ProblemScientists accidentally created an enzyme that can break down plastic. But is it any better than recycling? You might call it a happy accident: As environmentalists urge the world to address the plastic pollution crisis, a team of researchers has unwittingly engineered an enzyme that may, one day, literally eat our troubles away. Biologists at the U.K.’s University of Portsmouth were studying the structure of an enzyme that can break down polyester when they found a way to tweak it. The result, according to a study published this week in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences, is a “mutant enzyme” that can degrade plastics 20 percent more efficiently than its original form. The enzyme comes from a bacteria, Ideonella sakaiensis 201-F6, which was discovered in 2016 by Japanese researchers, who subsequently found that it could completely break down a thin layer of low-quality plastic within six weeks. Structural biologist John McGeehan and his team have now taken that enzyme and genetically engineered it so that it can begin the process in a matter of days. That kind of discovery is cause for excitement: It takes centuries for polyester, scientifically known as polyethylene terephthalate or PET, to degrade naturally. All this is just the beginning, though. McGeehan told the Guardian that his team wants to speed up the process even more, and find ways to scale it for industrial use. More importantly, the team imagines that the research can help prevent more plastic from entering the market in the first place. “What we are hoping to do is use this enzyme to turn this plastic back into its original components, so we can literally recycle it back to plastic,” McGeehan told the Guardian. To grasp what that would mean for the environment, just consider this startling statistic: 1 million plastic bottles are produced each minute. Roughly 10 percent of that gets recycled; the rest ends up in landfills, oceans, and parks. What is recycled often gets used in textiles, like clothes and carpets. Very few actually become bottles again. So, in theory, if McGeehan’s accidental discovery proves successful, the world could see a future in which we no longer need to dig up more oil to make plastic bottles. https://flipboard.com/@flipboard/-new-mutant-enzymes-could-solve-earths-p/f-a69394c522%2Fcitylab.com

  25. Guys, my nine year old Sylphy is giving me problems so I need to get a new car asap. I am looking for a reliable and cheap to maintain car for my family, two adults two kids. Don't care how it looks or how the drive is. I usually service with the authorised dealer so servicing is a concern too. Budget is flexible but looking at the cheaper models unless the more expensive one is very fuel efficient or reliable. I am thinking like Toyota or Honda. No more Nissan due to bad experience with Sylphy. Toyota Corolla or wish? Honda city? Going down to the showrooms today. Any suggestions is appreciated
