Can't afford a GR Yaris? Then grab this GR bodykit for your Perodua Myvi!

As much as we like to have many, many cars in our lifetime, sometimes dreams remain just that - dreams. Case in point is the Toyota GR Yaris - from RM 286k, it's a bit out of reach for most of us. But a Perodua Myvi though? It's something most Malaysians can afford, with the most expensive variant topping out at RM 52k. Unless several thousand Ringgit is poured into one, the Myvi isn't the closest thing to what one terms as a road-going rally car. But JW Bodykit Accessories will at least make Ma

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

买不起GR Yaris?那就来一套Perodua Myvi的GR车体套件吧!

我们都梦想着自己能拥有各色各样的车子,但有时候梦想也只能是梦。Toyota GR Yaris就是个活生生的例子——标价RM 286k起跳,这已经超出了绝大多数人的承受能力了。但如果换成是Perodua Myvi呢?这是绝大多数大马人民都能买得起的车,其最贵的顶配车型也不过RM 52k。 不过,如果你想让Myvi也成为公路上的拉力赛车,那么你至少也要再花上几千令吉改装。好在,现在JW Bodykit Accessories推出了一款车体套件,至少这款马来西亚“国民超跑”在外观上也能向疯狂的GR Yaris更近一步了。 图片来源:JW Bodykit Accessories 这家来自加影(Kajang)的改装车商近期po出了一张前保险杠原型的照片,让大家十分惊奇。所有的东西几乎都是完美复刻——模制的风刀(还有看起来真的有用的导气槽!)、煞车冷却风道,甚至还有“Functional Matrix”的前脸造型。 尽管改装套件的材料、价格以及其它细节信息都还没有公布,但我们认为套件上身后的效果,应该与Theophilus Chin制作的假想图十分相似。 正面造型看起来十分到位,不过实际套件会不会
