Counterfeit vs original spare parts: How to tell?

On the surface, the air filter and spark plug you bought from your neighbourhood spare parts shop look just like the original item, except that you’ve paid just a fraction of the price you would have otherwise paid at an authorised service centre.But little do you know, the spare parts you just bought are in fact counterfeit items, not original as what the shop owner told you.Counterfeit spare parts have been floating around in the market for the longest time, but how do you identify which

Here's why having a spare wheel won't do you much good

An increasingly prevalent practice for carmakers nowadays is to sell buyers a car that comes without a spare wheel (wheel, in this context is tyre + rim). In its place could be run flat tyres, a tyre pressure monitor system, or a more agricultural solution like a tyre repair kit.Image creditMany buyers are up in arms because of this, grumbling that carmakers are shortchanging them, or putting more expensive solutions in place. But lets dig deeper and ask ourselves, is this a valid argument? Do y

Although Proton has yet to confirm when the Proton X50 will be launched, we are pretty certain it will be within the month of October. Some sources have even provided us with a very specific date – October 15.The October timeline is easy to understand because Proton desperately needs the X50 to close the gap in its annual sales target (MCO not helping).

Hyundai-Kia占据市场80%令韩国政府担心,而大马却对Proton/Perodua不闻不问

2021年的头两个月,Hyundai汽车集团(HMG)在韩国的国产车市场份额(包括Kia)达到78.5%。如果将进口车也计算在内的话,Hyundai和Kia在韩国的市场份额合计为65.4%。2015年,当韩国国内Renault-Samsung、韩国GM、Ssangyong等其他厂商的竞争还较为激烈时,HMG当时在国内的汽车市场份额仅为66.5%,低了12%。由于目前韩国国内近八成的汽车市场都仅由一家公司控制,韩国政府以及一些学者和行业顾问都对此所带来的影响表示担忧。你或许会以为,韩国作为世界上最受保护的汽车市场之一,对这样的发展是持乐观态度的。在98年的亚洲金融危机之后,Kia被Hyundai并购了实际情况其实与我们看到的相反,韩国汽车市场的竞争是十分激烈的,认为这是一个受保护的汽车市场的看法已不成立。韩国现在是一个自由化的市场。国产汽车和进口汽车的税率相同,不过在尾气排放和燃油消耗方面还存在一些非关税的保护政策。在韩国的汽车市场中,经济车型领域由Hyundai-Kia占据了主导地位,而豪华车市场则是各家高端品牌在激烈竞争。韩国是Mercedes-Benz继中国、美国、德国、英国之后的
