Mat Rempits are getting more modern than years passed.

General buying guide: 5 must-have features in a new car

It’s 2020 and while we still haven’t seen any flying cars whizzing around, it’s fair to say that the tech we’re getting in today’s cars has improved tremendously. Want proof? Here's a clip from an episode of Top Gear from 2005 featuring an orangutan and an S-Class. Fast forward fifteen years later and a lot of the tech seen in a large German luxury car that cost nearly a million ringgit at the time are seen in regular cars today like the Toyota Vios and even the humble Perodua Myvi.

Is the new 2021 Toyota Vios facelift a better car than the City and Almera?

The B-segment sedan race is heating up for sure with UMW Toyota just only announcing (estimated) prices for the latest 2021 Toyota Vios facelift. Malaysians are pretty much spoilt for choice in getting a brand-new B-segment sedan with rivals like the Honda City and the Nissan Almera also vying to get buyers. However, which of the three would be the right choice? We’ll take a quick look and compare the highest specs (highest petrol-powered variant in the case of the City) of the 3 popular non-nat

Volvo S60 T8 is the cheapest new car on sale with over 400 PS

In a world where a 1,500 PS Bugatti Chiron is allowed to roam freely on the public roads, we have become desensitised to horsepower figures. It wasn’t too long ago (the 90s wasn’t too long ago, right?) that 400 PS was reserved for supercars and super sports cars like the Ferrari 360 Modena (400 PS from a 3.6-litre V8) and Porsche 996.2 GT3 RS (405 PS from a 3.6-litre in-line 6). These days, everything from a little hatchback to a family saloon can pack 400 PS or more. Hence, it’s quite easy to s

BMW 330i vs Mercedes-Benz C300, you might be surprised what a RM 300k car doesn't have

A battle older than time itself – BMW 3 Series against the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Although the BMW 3 Series has been with us for a longer time through 7 generations from 1975 (5 generations for the Merc, from 1982), the C-Class certainly gave and is still giving the 3 Series a run for its money. For a time, the common knowledge when it comes to these two is that the 3 Series provides a sportier drive while the C-Class is a more relaxing and comfortable car to be in.

What to do if your AEB-equipped car has a broken windscreen?

The short answer is that the AEB hardware needs to be recalibrated, which can only be done at an authorized service centre (at the moment, unless there is an independent repairer here that has invested in the necessary tools). You can still have the windscreen replaced at the windscreen repairer of your choice, but after replacing the glass, you need to bring the car back to the authorized service centre to have the AEB camera recalibrated.
