A Modern Classic BMW For Under RM100k

A Modern Classic BMW For Under RM100k

In this week's show, we discuss a driver's journey in a Tesla Model 3 from Singapore to Penang, tourists charging their cars, and a brand-new Automotive Hi-Tech Valley launched in Tanjung Malim. In Part 2, we go through the car launches, starting with the oddly-named and underwhelming-looking Smart #1 (pronounced hashtag-1), the newly-launched Mercedes-EQ S SUV, and the arrival of the RM1.1 million Lotus Emira in Malaysia.

Finally in Part 3, Daniel brings up what's sure to be a modern classic BMW: the small, spicy and twin turbocharged 2007 BMW 135i (E82). With over 300hp, a six-speed manual and a rear wheel drive platform, it's a true driver's car that's extremely hard to ignore (and find in the used car market), and for RM100k right now, it's a perfectly reasonable buy.
