Here at #MTHRFKNWIN, we are dreamers who constantly update our dream garages. Sometimes, we extend our limits by having an imaginary budget and debating what sports car we’d buy. It has to be realistic; because hey, this would be our first proper sports car and we don’t want to get it wrong. And since we were already dreaming out loud, we thought we would coincide this with our (popular) segment of  Unasked Questions We Don’t Get — what sports car would we buy with a budget of RM1,000,000? We wanted to try and not reveal anything, and since the video’s…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMxNs-HRt-4 During Porsche’s Sportscar Together Day at Sepang last weekend, we had the rare opportunity to drive their latest 911 Carrera S on Sepang track. Although both C2S and C4S lined the pit-lane, we did not get the chance to drive both cars back-to-back. Nor were we given the choice to pick one between the two. We were assigned a car and that was the end of it. We’re definitely not complaining. So, I strapped myself into the 991 Carrera 4S and went for my one lap around Sepang. As these occasions normally go, there is usually some traffic ahead…

My Sunday morning routine started off pretty normal; just headed for a drive up Ulu Yam for breakfast. However, there many more cars than usual, parked at the usual meet up spots — the two petrol stations, on both sides of the road, just before the start of the Ulu Yam route. The only thing I realized at the time, was there was a large number of Toyota 86s around, both old and new. The group of Toyota 86s set off ahead of me and while I wasn’t keeping count, it looked like they had around 30 cars within the…

We’ve had our fill of driving the W205 C-class; with a daily driven C 200 at home and having spent some 3,000 km on a roadtrip to Hua Hin and back in a C 43 AMG. And while I found the C 200 to be a little unenthusiastic, I had secretly fallen in love with the C 43. Now, you may argue that I preferred one over the other simply because of power, but you’d be wrong — take the humble VW Golf as an example; I have driven, and liked, every variant. This time around, we get to drive…

My first time in a Golf was a memorable one; it was a Mk 5 Golf GTI with some performance enhancements done. I didn’t like cars at all then, so when I say it left an impression, what I really meant was that it left an impression of my head on the headrest cushion. Since that night, I have had the privilege to test out every new generation of Golf and in all their flavours (TSI, GTI, R). And irrespective of variant, they have all been a hoot to drive. In fact, I loved the Golf so much that I…

This topic has no doubt been explored countless times before and we would not be surprised if we managed to uncover hardcore proponents from various camps of thought. But let’s look at the question again and try to settle with an objective conclusion Earlier this week, one of our readers stumbled upon a stack of his old car magazines. Most of these magazines were from the early 1980s, where cars were supposedly more affordable. He sent us a few screenshots of car prices from back in the day and we thought it would be a good idea to share this…

Mercedes-Benz have come a long way with the A-Class. Once dowdy looking and unimpressive to drive, the A-Class of early days carried the unfortunate stigma of car reserved for unimaginative people who only wanted to get from point A to point B, all while retaining a semblance of brand image. When Mercedes-Benz pulled covers off their third-generation A-Class, the world was stunned by its rugged good looks and grown up dimensions. The third-gen A-Class was popular in Malaysia, apparent simply by the sheer number of cars you see on our roads. Despite all its pizzaz, it had its share of…

In today’s digital age, people looking to purchase material goods tend to turn to the Internet to get the best possible deals. And why not? When I do my groceries, I try to do some quick price comparisons online before either heading out to make my purchases or, if I am lazy, have it sent to me doorsteps at the cost of delivery and a few extra swipes on the phone or browser. This is the same when it comes to buying used cars on the Internet. While car ads used to be published in newspapers and magazines before, the…
