Shell Helix Power 5W-40 is a new engine oil specially designed for high power & performance vehicles with the added benefit of being carbon neutral. The other carbon neutral lineup is the Shell Helix Power 0W-40 & Shell Helix Protect 0W-30.

Maximum Power & Acceleration

Shell Helix engine oil with Pureplus Technology is made out of natural gas, which is stronger & less volatile at the molecular level compared to traditional engine oil made from crude oil.

What this means to you as the driver is that the Shell 5W-40 is up to 32% better at resisting oil degradation & up to 50% less evaporation to maximize your car’s acceleration & stay that strong for longer.

The Shell 5W-40 is suitable for modern direct-injection petrol, turbocharged petrol & diesel passenger vehicles.

Low Viscocity Engine Oils Improves Emissions

Shell engine oils, together with many vehicle OEMs are moving towards low viscocity engine oil specifications with the following benefits:

Better fuel economy
Excellent low temperature performane
Lower friction
Better engine wear protection

All benefits for the consumer for maximum power without compromise while helping to contribute less emissions to the environment.

What is Carbon Neutral?

As many drivers want to reduce their carbon footprint on an individual level, Shell has launched the carbon-neutral engine oil line-up product to capture the changing demands of modern drivers. 

Carbon neutrality means that emissions must be avoided, reduced or offset across the entire lifestyle of the product. From raw material extraction, packaging, production, distribution, usage & end of product life.

One of the obvious ways to cut down on carbon fooprint is to use recycled plastic for their packaging. Shell manages to reduce the usage of virgin plastics by up to 30% with the Carbon Neutral engine oil line up.

Whenever emissions can’t be avoided throughout the product lifecycle, Shell compensates with carbon compensations projects, such as the restoration & green initiatives:

Wetland preservations
Forest reforestations
Agriculture & grasslands sustainability projects
Blue carbon – Sediments of mangroves, salt marshes & seagrasses
Household waste management

The new engine oil is the first carbon-neutral engine oil made from natural gas & retails starting from RM280 for a 4L bottle.

The perfect product for drivers who want maximum acceleration from their high performance car while choosing to contribute to carbon neutrality on an individual level.

Be on the look out for the “Untuk pasaran Malaysia” logo on the packaging to ensure it’s a genuine product from Shell. 

Free Shell Helix bamboo bluetooth speaker with every purchase of Shell Helix Power 0W-40, Shell Helix Power 5W-40, or Shell Helix Protect 0W-30 four-litre pack at any participating outlets. While stocks last.

More caravans on Malaysian roads soon? are we into it though?

MITI, ECERDC and Knaus Tabbert AG want to kick-start the RV industry in Malaysia.

Apparently, the recreational vehicle (RV) industry has the potential to bring in billions of ringgit worth of investments into Malaysia, which is why The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) and the East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC) are looking into expanding its presence here.

As reported by the New Straits Times, MITI deputy secretary general Datuk Sri Norazman Ayob has said that his ministry is working closely with the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and ECERDC to attract high-quality investments, such as that of the RV industry to provide sustainable growth for the nation.

He said this at the RV Vehicle Type Approval (VTA) certificate handover to Knaus Tabbert AG, a German company which makes motorhomes and caravans which has officially set up shop in Malaysia.

The VTA approval for roadworthiness will allow for the authorised sales and distribution channel of new caravans under its own category, thus easing its financing and insuring requirements.

Knaus Tabbert AG chief executive officer Wolfgang Speck says the company looks forward to working with ECERDC to set up an RV manufacturing facility in the East Coast region. 

For now though, the caravans from Knaus Tabbert will be fully imported, but they are working towards SKD assembly(semi-kocked down) and if there is enough demand, moving on the CKD operations.

“We also look forward to work with Malaysian companies for dealership opportunities and opening more caravan parks in the country to encourage Malaysians to embrace this new lifestyle and take full advantage of the country’s beautiful landscape,” said Speck.

Knaus Tabbert AG recently received VTA certificates for its Sudwind 500FU and KWE-Sport 500 Q caravans by the Road Transport Department (RTD).

Based on RTD data, there are a total of 742 RV vehicles registered and driven on local roads as of today, which includes, 500 caravan, 115 motorhomes, and 67 trailer caravan.

What do you think? can the RV industry boom here? are Malaysians interested in caravaning?

5 Kereta Sports JDM bawah RM150,000 – Masih boleh buat loan!

Bagi peminat kereta sports untuk pasaran domestik Jepun atau JDM, tahukah anda dengan bajet sebanyak RM150,000, ada banyak kereta sports JDM terpakai dan recond yang boleh di dapati melalui

Meskipun dunia sedang bergerak ke arah elektrifikasi, model kereta sports JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) masih mempunyai peminatnya yang tersendiri di pasaran negara ini.

Kenapa Kereta Sports JDM Disukai Ramai?

Kereta sports JDM masih mempunyai tempat di hati rakyat Malaysia atas beberapa sebab, antaranya adalah kerana rata-rata kereta ini menggunakan enjin yang padu dan berkuasa. Daripada RB26DETT hingga 2JZ, SR20DET hingga F20C dan pelbagai variasi di antaranya, enjin prestasi Jepun memang terkenal dengan kehenatannya. Tambahan pula, kebanyakan enjin ini boleh menerima kenaikan kuasa secara besar-besaran dengan agak mudah.

Selain itu kereta sports JDM ini juga hadir dengan pelbagai jenis pacuan dan kedudukan enjin seperti pacuan roda belakang, pacuan semua roda, enjin di hadapan dan enjin di pertengahan. Pendek kata, ada kereta sports JDM untuk semua orang.

Berikut merupakan 5 kereta sports JDM yang boleh dibeli dengan bajet RM150,000 ke bawah dan masih boleh dibeli secara pinjaman melalui bank:

2016 Subaru Impreza 2.5 WRX A Line – RM145,900
2016 Toyota 86 – RM150,000
2018 Suzuki Swift Sport – RM120,000 (Recond) tapi baharu hanya RM140,000
2016 Mazda MX-5 – RM135,000 – RM150,000
2014 Honda CR-Z – RM57,000 – RM70,000

2016 Subaru Impreza WRX 2.5L


Enjin:  2.5L Turbo
Output: 300 PS & 350 Nm
Transmisi: Automatik 5-kelajuan
Pacuan: pacuan semua roda (AWD)

Subaru Impreza adalah model JDM yang pernah menggegar dunia automotif pada suatu masa dahulu. Model eksport ini biasanya menerima pacuan semua roda, namun pacuan roda hadapan juga tersedia di pasaran domestik Jepun.

Sejak siri generasi ketiga, sesetengah pasaran telah menggunakan nama singkatan Subaru WRX untuk varian berprestasi tinggi ini. Untuk model terpakai tahun 2014, model ini boleh didapati pada harga RM145,900.

Apa yang kami suka
Apa yang kami tak suka

AWD sebagai standard
Sistem audio yang kurang memuaskan

Enjin dan handling yang mengagumkan

2016 Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ 2.0L


Enjin: 2.0L NA
Output: 200 PS, 205 Nm
Transmisi: Automatik 6-kelajuan/manual 6-kelajuan
Pacuan: pacuan roda belakang (RWD)

Model seterusnya merupakan model yang sama seperti Subaru BRZ, iaitu Toyota 86. Di Malaysia ia dikenali dengan Toyota 86 berbanding GT86 di eropah dan FT86 untuk konsepnya. Model itu adalah pengganti kepada AE86 hachi roku asal, sebuah Corolla coupe pacuan roda belakang tahun 80-an yang dipopularkan oleh aksi drift dan Initial D.

Model ini sering dilihat menjadi pilihan anak muda yang mahu berjinak-jinak dengan sukan drift. Pada awal pelancaran kereta ini di Malaysia, harganya dijual pada RM249,000. Kini model ini boleh dibeli pada harga RM99,000 lebih murah, iaitu pada harga RM150,000.

Enjin: 1.4L Boosterjet
Output: 140 PS, 230 Nm
Transmisi: Automatik 6-kelajuan
Pacuan: pacuan roda hadapan (FWD)

Ini merupakan model generasi ketiga dan bukanlah model biasa Swift kerana ia versi Sport atau versi prestasi tinggi. Kehebatan sebenar hot hatch ini bukanlah pada output horsepower, namun lebih kepada tork yang tinggi serta kereta yang ringan untuk dikawal membuatkan ia lincah.

Enjin K14C 1.4 liter turbo Boosterjet memang enjin yang jauh lebih padu kalau nak dibandingkan dengan enjin Swift terdahulu yang menggunakan M16A 1.6L NA. Walaupun perbezaan kuasa kudanya tidaklah begitu tinggi, namun anjakan tork kereta ini menyaksikan peningkatan drastik lebih 70 Nm tork. Untuk harga recond kereta ini, ia boleh didapati pada harga RM120,000 untuk model tahun 2018.

Walau bagaimanapun, jika anda memiliki bajet RM150,000, anda dinasihatkan untuk membeli sebuah Swift Sport baharu yang tidak jauh beza harganya, iaitu berharga RM145,900 sahaja.

Output: 160 PS, 200 Nm

Seterusnya, jika anda tidak begitu gemarkan Toyota 86, mungkin boleh pertimbangkan Mazda MX-5 recond tahun 2016. Untuk perbezaan, model baharu MX-5 ini di Malaysia dijual pada harga mencecah RM264,000 manakala model recond hanya dijual pada harga RM150,000 sahaja.

Sebagai kereta sports convertible dua tempat duduk terlaris dalam sejarah, MX-5 telah dipasarkan secara global melebihi satu juta pengeluaran pada awal 2016. Model generasi keempat ini telah menerima beberapa anugerah seperti Anugerah Kereta Terbaik Jepun 2015-2016 dan Anugerah Kereta Terbaik Dunia 2016. Di samping itu, kereta itu adalah asas untuk Fiat 124 Spider dan Abarth 124 Spider.

Transmisi: Automatik 7 kelajuan/manual 6-kelajuan

Banyak sebenarnya kereta sports JDM yang boleh diperolehi melalui dengan bajet di bawah RM150,000. Walau bagaimanapun, anda dinasihatkan untuk mencari kereta yang belum mencecah usia lebih 10 tahun untuk memudahkan proses pinjaman bank.

Jika anda mahu membuat pinjaman, anda digalakkan untuk membeli kereta recond berbanding kereta terpakai kerana pinjaman kereta anda akan dikenakan caj faedah yang lebih rendah, seakan kereta baharu berbanding kereta terpakai.

Bagi mereka yang membeli kereta yang sedikit berusia, anda dinasihatkan untuk mempunyai sedikit simpanan untuk menambah baik spesifikasi kereta terbabit mengikut piawaian kini. Bukan apa, ianya demi keselamatan dan keselesaan anda sebagai pemandu juga. Setiap komponen kenderaan mempunyai jangka hayatnya yang tersendiri. Pastikan anda menukar dan membaiki komponen tersebut sebelum terlambat!

Warranty Kereta Terpakai: Warranty Smart

Salah satu kelemahan membeli kereta terpakai adalah kebanyakannya tidak dilindungi di bawah waranti pengilang.

Warranty Smart merupakan perlindungan pilihan untuk sebarang pembelian kereta terpakai di bawah umur 10 tahun.

Perlindungan bermula dari RM848 setahun. Baca lebih lanjut mengenai Waranti Smart di sini.

2023 BMW 3.0 CSL unleashed – the last BMW 50th anniversary ‘hurrah’ for 2022

BMW is capping off its BMW M 50th anniversary year with the launch of the new 2023 BMW 3.0 CSL.

Labelled as the brand’s ‘most exclusive model the company ever produced’, the BMW 3.0 CSL embodies 50 years of the brand’s racing history and passion and those who know will quickly go back to the 3.0 CSL Hommage model introduced back in 2015 and prior to that, the BMW 3.0 CSL which competed and won in the 1973 European Touring Car Championship plus more.

Only 50 units to go into production

BMW will allocate three months of their time to produce only 50 examples of the BMW 3.0 CSL using a team of 30 specially qualified and experienced technicians. Nicknamed “The Batmobile”, the coupe comes with some juicy wide wheel arches and a set of lovely aero bits which include the front spoiler, air bars, roof spoiler, and rear wing.

The new BMW 3.0 CSL shares a lot of pointers from the BMW M4 model, but you won’t be able to tell straight away thanks to BMW’s efforts to make this a unique coupe. It was successfully done using a lot of carbon fibre and aluminium for the body parts and a dash of glass fibre-reinforced plastic.

1,270kg with 560hp & 550Nm of torque

Featuring BMW’s most powerful straight six-cylinder power unit ever used in a road-legal BMW M automobile, the BMW 3.0 CSC comes packing with a 3,153cc straight six-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, the BMW 3.0 CSL registers a very promising 560hp and 550Nm of torque. All that power is sent down only to the rear wheels, baby.

To make things even more interesting, the BMW 3.0 CSL will be offered with a six-speed manual transmission with shift assist and an Active M Differential. Handling all that power is done via a set of Adaptive M Suspension, M carbon ceramic brakes, and forged light alloy wheels (20-inch front, 21-inch rear). The result is a true-performance road car that weighs only 1,270kg. Power-to-weight ratio? 2.9kg per hp

Classic racing-style paintwork & interior

Finished in Alpine White, the BMW 3.0 CSL is also dressed in the BMW M GmbH iconic colours of blue, purple, and red. All the parts that come with the M stripes (22 in total) are applied by hand and the carbon components are painted by specialists which will take up to around six days to complete.

As for the interior, the lightweight theme continues with M carbon full bucket seats, more carbon fibre-reinforced plastic trims, black Alcantara surfaces, M seat belts, and more. If you’re lucky to even get one booked under your name, be prepared to pay a huge sum for it – an estimated figure of over RM3 million a pop.

Audi e-tron GT is Coming to Malaysia in Q2 2023 – Performance EV

Those who are interested to get their very own Audi e-tron GT electric car might not have to wait that long for its imminent arrival.

PHS Automotive Malaysia (PHSAM), the official distributor of Audi here in the country, previously announced that their range of EVs will enter the local market starting with the e-tron SUVs early next year. We’re guessing that the Audi e-tron GT models will follow suit within the second quarter of 2023. Oh, what joy.

Audi e-tron GT quattro or RS e-tron GT?

As far as EVs go, the Audi e-tron GT selection is certainly fine-looking masterpiece on wheels. There are two variants that might land on our shores next year – the e-tron GT quattro and the more manic RS e-tron GT. In essence, both variants share the same setup of dual electric motors, an all-wheel-drive system, and an 85kWh battery pack that offers up to 487km.

The biggest difference is the power output as the e-tron GT quattro produces 476PS and 630Nm of torque whereas the more powerful RS e-tron GT kicks it up to 598PS and 830Nm of torque. Not bad at all considering that it’s actually the cousin of one of favourite EVs yet, the Porsche Taycan.

Pricing how?

There’s still no indicator of the price range for any of the Audi e-tron EV models that’ll enter Malaysia in 2023. Looking at the current prices for the Porsche Taycan should help draw in a more sensible price range for the Audi e-tron GT models.

Currently, the Porsche Taycan base model starts from RM540,000 and it goes up to six different variants. The one sitting at the very top is the Taycan Turbo S which is priced from RM991,000. More details will be released as we enter the new year. One thing is for sure, the Malaysian EV scene is booming, and it’ll continue to grow rapidly in 2023.

In the meantime, check out our review of the 2021 Audi A5 Sportback below.

2023 Nissan Serena Japan Launch – Up to 315Nm Torque From RM90k

The all-new 2023 Nissan Serena has been unveiled in Japan with two fully-revamped powertrains and safety features.

Ever since its launch back in 1991, Nissan’s family MPV or ‘minivan’ is now more spacious paired with the brand’s latest driving aids in the form of the ProPilot 2.0 advanced driver assistance system.

2.0L NA or 1.4L hybrid?

The new 2023 Nissan Serena will be available in two different powertrains – a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated engine that produces 150hp and 200Nm of torque and a brand-new 1.4-litre hybrid e-Power model with 162hp and 315Nm of torque when combined with its electric motor.

The 2.0-litre unit will be offered in either the all-wheel-drive or two-wheel-drive versions that are paired to a CVT gearbox. More emphasis is placed on the new second-generation e-Power system 1.4-litre hybrid unit which is said to be more powerful in terms of numbers paired with smooth acceleration while being a much quieter unit compared to the previous gen.

Another highlight is the world’s first energy management technology which ‘controls when the engine turns on and off in accordance with vehicle speed, traffic conditions, and the navigation system’.

ProPilot 2.0 with hands-off driving, park memory & remote park

The range-topping Nissan Serena hybrid model will be available in the Luxion grade which offers hands-off driving for single lane use on a highway at speeds of 40 km/h or above to help reduce driving fatigue, particularly in long-distance travels.

Other highlights include the ProPilot Park with memory to help record and recognise parking space lines (first for Nissan) as well as the ProPilot Remote Park. There’s also the steering assist feature with forward collision avoidance, which is also a first for Nissan.

Enhanced comfort for all occupants

Nissan went to great lengths to ensure that the new 2023 Nissan Serena is quieter and more comfortable for all of its occupants. Things like enhanced insulation as well as methods to reduce motion sickness were all incorporated into the new MPV.

These were done by including a wide open view for the driver and passengers, new seats that can dampen occupant movement, rigid steering wheel for better handling and stability, enhanced vehicle structure with better aerodynamics, upgraded suspension for reduced body roll, plus more.

Other additions include:

All LED lights
Switch-type gear shifter
Water-repellent seat material
120mm additional driver legroom
Dual rear doors with hands-free function
Optional 100V AC power source (to power electronic devices) + more

Prices start from 2,768,700 yen (around RM89,900) for the base 2.0-litre models and 4,798,200 yen (around RM155,700) for the hybrid e-Power Luxion unit. The base models will go on sale in Japan in December followed by the hybrid sometime in the second quarter of 2023.

Below is the review of the 2020 Nissan Serena:

Ipoh Congestion Solution: Jalan Tingkat Taman Ipoh 12 to Become One-Way Street

It looks like Ipoh’s Tingkat Taman Ipoh 12 will become a one-way street as Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh(MBI) has given the green light to give the one-way system a try.

According to The Star, a city council spokesman has said the proposal to turn Tingkat Taman Ipoh 12 into a one-way street has just been approved.

“Hopefully, this will resolve the congestion issue there. Road signs will be installed along with additional parking spots,” he said. He added that work would start in the middle of next month.

As reported by The Star, many shop owners along the street are happy that MBI will be turning the road into a one-way system, as they believe that the road is too narrow for it to be a two-way street.

With people parking on both sides of the road, the street has practically turned into a one-way system anyway, so it’s just a matter of refining it to ease congestion in the area. 

Tingkat Taman Ipoh 12 is a victim of its own success as many frequent the area to visit the famous eateries, beauty salons and child activity centres.

While this might sound like a great idea, there are some cons to having a one-way system as they can affect pedestrians. 

One-way systems tend to be unfriendly to cyclists and pedestrians as vehicles tend to stop less, and because they do not stop, vehicle speed tends to be higher, which is a safety issue for people that are walking or cycling around the area. 

To be a complete success, MBI needs to think this through, or else it’ll just be another one-way system that might be a complete failure, ultimately affecting business on the street.
