Congratulations to the lucky winners - Mr Lee Min Foong from Perak who won a brand new Toyota Prius 1.8L Luxury and Mr Poopaladurai Selvadurai from Melaka who is now the very lucky owner of a brand new Honda CR-Z.
On another note, about 302,700 people attended KLIMS 2013 over the 10 days it was open. Not too bad at all.

The limited edition Aston Martin Vantage N430. Recently launched at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and built so that customers can buy into the heritage and pedigree of the Vantage's race history especially at the Nurburgring 24Hour race as well as the 2013 win of the Vantage GTE in the FIA World Endurance Championships.

My friend Firdaus has pointed me to another great prospect on mudah.my. What we have here is marketed to the buying public as a Nissan GTR. Yes, you motorheads would know it as a bloody fast car but not in any way like this. This one surprisingly looks like a truck. It is a Nissan nonetheless.
Of course putting 'GTR' in every Nissan adds some sort of mileage or marketing stunt. Or so one thinks.
The original advert is here (until mudah takes it down of course)....ad details are below:
Lori nissan 2.0 manual petrol.
Tahun 2002 .
Untuk di jual segera.
Call zh automobil ent.
In defense of: A local REBADGED Tiger from a Diamond instead of a Toyota or a Honda or any B segment Car
2.0liter variable valve timing 4 cylinder engine, 148hp (150ps), 197Nm, 200km/h, 0-100km/h in around 10.5secs or faster, multi-link suspension at the rear, CVT (with optional pedal shifters), fully equipped cabin and all for around RM90,000 (and Japanese technology too). The Toyota Vios pictured above has a 1.5liter vvt 4 cylinder engine, 105ps, 141Nm, 180+km/h, 0-100km/h in around 11secs, beam axle rear suspension, ancient 4 speed automatic, even more plasticky materials in the cabin for around RM90,000 if you're crazy enough to buy the TRD specced Vios at RM93,000 or RM88,000 for a G spec model. Madness isn't it? Why are you buying this??????

There is a Facebook group that was started by a group of Malaysian Volkswagen owners who are extremely disappointed (to say the least) by the supposedly appalling after-sales service quality over at Volkswagen Malaysia. I am not surprised as I have written a couple or so times as regards how unreliable VW cars have been in recent years. you can have a look at the group here.

Geneva 2014: Subaru Viziv 2 Concept - Subaru is showing us again how their future will NOT look like
Here is another concept car from Subaru. They've been showing us the Viziv Concept last year and now this one is called the Subaru Viziv 2 Concept. This concept showcases "environmental friendliness and driving pleasure" as well as "design and utility" at the highest level. What this plug-in hybrid crossover vehicle actually tells me is that THIS IS WHAT SUBARU WILL NOT BUILD FOR US IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
Why am I saying so?

I love how Rolls Royce is marketing this new Ghost Series II. They are claiming it to be an "an oasis of calm in a frenetic business world". Of course, this may be quite true in every sense of the word.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars UNVEILS GHOST SERIES II TO THE WORLD AT 2014 GENEVA MOTOR SHOW
2015 Audi TTS
The Geneva Motor Show 2014 is on-going at the moment and automobile manufacturers are quite busy previewing new cars over there. Audi has decided to use Geneva as its place to unveil the all new Audi TT. Although this is the all new and improved TT, people who aren't car people may think it is the same car.
Like recent Audis, the TT has a evolutionary design (which in my opinion needs a little bit of a shake up as it still looks similar to the outgoing one and to other more bread and butter Audis out there) which features the usual large hexagonal grille and LED daytime driving lights (with optional LED main headlights too this time around). The only difference is that the four rings Audi logo now resides on the bonnet instead of on the grille. Ooooo...Audi, what prominent changes you have made to the TT.
There will be an all new Honda Civic Type-R for all those Honda tuning fans out there. Photos of the upcoming car has already been leaked prior to its official launch at the Geneva Motor Show tomorrow. The car has been confirmed to have something all Honda fans (read as fanatics) have waited for..an official turbocharged Type-R. It's based on the 2 door Civic hatchback and no sign of a 4 door version by the likes of it.

This photo is for Satria Neo owners to dream about when thinking of what the heck should they try to aim for when trying to modify their ergonomically challenged hatchback.
