  • Used 5-year old F20 BMW 1 Series for under RM80k - How much to maintain and repair?

    The BMW 1 Series is somewhat of an anomaly to the BMW range in Malaysia. The 1 Series is envisioned as an entry model to the rest of the BMW range, but with prices almost nudging those of the seminal 3 Series, the 1 Series found lesser popularity amongst Malaysian buyers. Moreover, as opposed to BMW’s sedan and SUV models, the 1 Series doesn’t quite conjure the same X-factor rating as buying a 3 Series (or an X1 for that matter) as your first BMW. It doesn’t help too that, it goes up against est

Without further distractions, let’s pour out a little motor oil for these fallen models that were killed off in 2020.

  • BMW 128ti coming soon: i30N, Golf GTI rival with 265 PS, 8AT, FWD

    2020 is not holding back with surprises so what’s another, right? The jack-in-the-box this time is the BMW 128ti, BMW’s new hot-hatch that’s ready to pinch sales from the VW Golf GTi. The Bavarians are also looking to cure a Hyundai i30N-sized headache. BMW going up against Hyundai? Wait till you hear what's next... It’s front-wheel drive (sorry, purists), but wait, it’s far from humbug. There’s a four-cylinder, turbocharged 2.0-litre mill putting out 265 PS paired to an 8-speed Steptronic (auto

  • 2020 Mercedes-AMG A35 vs 2020 (F40) BMW M135i – Which hot hatch is spicier?

    When the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic (RM 366,785 OTR 0% SST) was launched it only had one competitor and it is the out-going and no-less fun Volkswagen Golf R. We all know that with the dated features the Golf had to offer, it doesn’t come close to the A35. But come July, with the arrival of F40 2020 BMW M135i (RM 355,646 OTR 0% SST) to our shores, the A35 now has a worthy competitor. So, how do these hot hatches compare in terms of specs? Exterior There is no denying that the BMW M135i cuts th

  • BMW 1 Series for Malaysia will be CBU-only, no more CKD

    The outgoing F20-generation BMW 1 Series is the only generation of the 1 Series that was assembled in Malaysia, as the all-new F40-generation 1 Series is imported from Germany.

  • Buying a BMW is so easy, you can even do it while drifting!

    The COVID-19 outbreak has taught us many things - that it’s safer to just stay at home, avoid converging in groups and buying cars while drifting is entirely possible. Wait, what? Apparently that’s what BMW wants you to know. Firmly on the global bandwagon of selling cars through the internet, BMW has introduced BMW Anywhere, a platform that allows their South African customers to configure and order their cars online and have it delivered, er, anywhere. That’s pretty much the focus of the video
