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

Today, Mugen is no longer in F1, having vacated the spot to make way for Honda’s re-entry into the sport. Instead, it participates in Super GT and Japanese Super Formula Championship (formerly For

How to survive a car crash? Don't be stupid with your seatbelts

Have you ever come across kids jumping at the backseat of a car, while you’re stopped at a red light? This is one of my biggest driving pet peeves, people not wearing seatbelts whilst travelling in their cars. We have seen countless times, crashes on the road that have resulted in people getting flung out of their cars. Why? Plain and simple, they weren’t wearing their seatbelts. How can something so intrinsically simple to do become such a widely-ignored habit? Sadly, it’s down to both ignoranc
