Spice up the 2020 Nissan Almera Turbo with these accessories!

Here at the WapCar office, some of us are pretty divided on whether the 2020 Nissan Almera Turbo looks better than the 2020 Honda City but one thing is for certain, one has more affordable road tax than the other. Besides, while Honda has released some Modulo accessories for the all-new City, Nissan has also a few accessories of their own. No, they aren’t by Impul or Nismo, for now.

Worth RM 3,500? A closer look at the 2020 Proton X50's accessories package

There's been much ado recently and it's not about nothing - the 2020 Proton X50 has very clearly won Malaysia's popularity contest since its October launch. But popularity isn't the only thing Proton's latest B-segment SUV's got in common with A-list celebrities. As waiting lists extend up to 6 months, the X50 was caught in controversy following allegations that dealers were forcing customers to buy optional accessories. A lot of the hubbub is due to pricing: at RM 3,300 for the Utility Package

Malaysia Boleh – Proton Wira 'Teksi' takes on the Nurburgring

I remember the first time I heard of the Nurburgring was on Top Gear when Clarkson tried to make a lap time of under 10 minutes in a diesel Jaguar. He barely made the time but was outclassed by Sabine Schmidt. Needless to say, I always imagined how fast a Proton would go round the famous “Green Hell”. Well, a pair of Dutch twin brothers did just that with their taxi-liveried Proton Wira! The Gravemade brothers from Dutch DIY Mechanics (DDM), Jochem and Ruben turned a regular Proton Wira into a t

From aftermarket wheels, seats to steering wheels - chances are you can pick out a couple of modified cars just by looking around you. Check when you’re out and about, and you’ll see I’m right. Us Malaysians are a creative bunch, and it’s only natural that trickles down to our cars. Sometimes we get too creative... As much as it’s cool to make the cars we drive truly our own, there are plenty of enthusiasts who go for low-quality, fake accessories. Sure, there are some people who ignorantly choo

Be wary of hidden charges when buying a used car!

Buying a used car can net you quite a fair bit in savings, as depreciation is a painful reality for new car buyers. But ask anyone who has recently purchased a used car and the general consensus is the same – the listed price isn’t always the same as the price they paid. The main reason is very simple; used car dealers have a nasty habit of excluding hidden 'processing fees' from the listed price of their cars. As such, one can expect to pay an extra RM 4,000 to RM 5,000 more when buying from a
