Future owners of Perodua D55L, the Toyota Raize Modellista body kit is waiting for you

This Modellista body kit is designed specifically for the Toyota Raize - aka Daihatsu Rocky - in Japan, but does this mean it will fit on the upcoming Perodua D55L which is based on the Rocky?

Proton tried fighting Perodua with the Tiara and Savvy, and lost miserably

Between Proton and Perodua, it’s easy to see which one produces the rakyats car. Both local carmakers also have a sort of friendly rivalry.While Proton did a decent rival against the Perodua Myvi with the Iriz, its sales were pretty lacklustre compared to the mighty King. At least the Iriz actually sell decently, which is more being said for its predecessors, the Proton Tiara and the Proton Savvy.Exactly what went wrong with the two Proton hatchbacks that both models are dubbed as the wors

Buying used cars: 5 signs a car has been in an accident

A knight in shining armor is a man who has never had his metal truly tested. Likewise, a pristine looking car is a car that hasn’t been driven much. While the former may be an inspirational phrase, the latter is a sign of a good used car.When shopping for a used car, it is normal to see dings, scratches, or the occasional putty. Small damages are good for bargaining, but a used car with major damage is much better avoided. Whether or not to go on with the purchase is entirely up to you. Th
