FEATURE: What On Earth Happened To The Skoda Brand In Malaysia? We Reminisce In Light Of The New Skoda Skala!

When even the official local website for a bona-fide carmaker – not some fly-by-night kit-car – returns an Error 404 message, you just know something has gone terribly wrong, somewhere. And that’s a shame because I really like Skoda cars. A Google search fares no better, the last search yielded an Autoworld  (<–link) post from back […]

VIDEO FEATURE: Could You Really Use A MANUAL Transmission Daily? We Find Out In the Best One Available, The Honda Civic Type-R! [+Video]

Manual gearbox. Three pedals. Stick shift. Call them what you will, but they’ve been dying a slow and painful death locally. It’s no big secret that Malaysians – thanks largely to our traffic conditions – are understandably only buying automatic cars for their daily needs these days, opting to let their left leg do absolutely […]

THROWBACK THURSDAY: KLIMS 2018 – Why The KL International Motorshow Is Still Very Far-Off The Mark [+Videos]

The venue was a LOT better this time around. Okay so I thought I’d start this article off on a positive note, and one of the things I’m happy to say is that KLIMS 2018 chose a much better venue than the PWTC of past shows. MITEC, while still not ideal, was a much more […]

FEATURE: We Tested The New BHP Infiniti For 1,000kms Right Into Another Country!

Now driving more than 1,000km just to test fuel might sound like overkill to some, but I’m definitely not one of them. You see in this line of work, some might think that we have more than enough of driving, and as such a roadtrip like the one recently organised by BH Petrol from KL […]

Following our previous report on KLIMS or the Kuala Lumpur International Motorshow, we attended the Press Day on 22nd November 2018, and right-off the bat, it’s safe to say that the new venue for KLIMS at the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC) outside downtown KL is definitely a better location, not just in […]

KLIMS Is Back – The KL International Motorshow 2018 Starts On 23rd Nov @ MITEC! [+Links]

I’ve never liked KLIMS. No, really, to me it was without a doubt the worst motorshow of the region. Badly organised, always in a shambles and no-one (especially the media) knew what was going on and when. But the biggest, most obvious error in judgment was its physical location. The PWTC or Putra World Trade […]
