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 is

This is why there's still no confirmed price list for the Proton X50 yet

Bookings for the Proton X50 are opened but the obvious question on every prospective buyer’s mind is, “How am I supposed to book for a car when I don’t know the price?” Proton dealers nationwide are ready to accept a RM 500 booking fee for the Proton X50 but you can’t view the car at any showroom yet. Instead, Proton is organizing closed-door preview sessions to selected customers but if you are not on their preferred customers list, you’ll have to wait longer. With no clear indication on when w

Does the Perodua Ativa (D55L) come with a spare wheel?

Although spare wheels are no longer offered in many premium cars (replaced with either run-flat tyres or tyre repair kits), spare wheels are still important for consumers shopping at the lower-end of the price spectrum.

BMW Malaysia updates price list for 2021, BMW 320i cheaper by RM 1,911

BMW Malaysia has released the updated price list for 2021 with a few notable changes. Prices have fluctuated for some models while some remained the same, like the BMW 218i Gran Coupe and BMW X1 sDrive 18i. Here’s the interesting part – the prior 5-year warranty and service package is now optional; standard is a 2-year warranty without free service. This means prices have dropped across the board with the standard 2-year warranty, but goes back to the same price as before should customers opt fo

Proton's Adventure in the BTCC Part 2

This time, things are looking a lot more different for both Proton in the UK and the BTCC as a whole. No, Petronas was just a sponsor here.

5-year waiting list for the Suzuki Jimny in Indonesia

With talks of the Suzuki Jimny being locally assembled in Indonesia, Autonetmagz mentioned that the waiting list for the Jimny has reached 60 months or 5 years. It is estimated that orders for the Suzuki Jimny have exceeded 3000 units, and Suzuki Indonesia is only able to fulfill 50 of them per month due to import restrictions (the Suzuki Jimny is currently imported from Japan). This gives a rough calculation for the waiting list of around 60 months or so. To refresh, the Suzuki Jimny is powered

The Geely Haoyue's dimensions compared against the Mazda CX-8 and Hyundai Santa Fe Dimensions - Just how big is the Haoyue again?

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 credit Many buyers are up in arms because of this, grumbling that carmakers are shortchanging them, or putting more expensive solutions in place. But let's dig deeper and ask ourselves, is this a valid argument? D

Is RM 124k a fair price for the Toyota Corolla Cross? The Subaru XV and Proton X70 are cheaper

You've been waiting for it, and now it's here. The compact SUV segment in Malaysia just got a whole lot more interesting with the arrival of the Toyota Corolla Cross. You've probably read and digested all the specifications and features, gone back and forth through the brochure. Established players such as the Honda HR-V, Subaru XV, Mazda CX-3 (and the Proton X70 to some extent) have had this segment of the market pretty much licked for years, especially after Toyota's own C-HR was pulled from t
