    If I have a million dollar car I would take speeding tickets as a necessary evil just like having to pump petrol and service the car. To heck with the fines, unless of course the thing is linked to our driving license , then if you accumulate 3/4 speeeding tickets your license is suspended. In our bolehland anythng can happen. Records can get wiped out ala attantuya. So what is there to worry unless your maker decides it is time for your to go because you have been speeding too much.

    Imagine a light tap on the accelerator and within a few seconds you are in 'fine' territory. How to drive like that? Better to buy the one liter mondeo then.

    I saw this cute car in front of me while driving on NPE this morning.

    I am impressed with the look and the tyre size....

    This Alfa MiTo is fitted with tyres of 215 width and R17 rim... !!

    Such a small car with such big size tyres…

    This 1.4 little cutie beats the 2.0 Japanese car flat in power output.

    One good thing about buying new conti car now is they provide rather generous coverage in after-sales due to competition. 5 years warranty and 5 year free maintenance is coomon. The OEM or car dealer actually buy insurance to cover the extended warranty. So only a small amount of extra costs are shared between the car buyer and dealer.

    Among all the continental cars, I like the present Volvo as I am impressed by their Scandinavian design philosophy "beautifully simple and simply beautiful ". It is just my personal preference as I like minimalist design and Scandinavian is synonymous with that.
    I was looking at the latest S60 spec - really better than those in the same category ! Why is there not many buyers?
