    Errm. Might be possible. But i believe, their only pride left is on Lexus. Haha. Japanese hate to lose face. Especially to their biggest rival Honda. Honda over took them in sales.


    The new Altis was not a big hit like the previous one. Engine the same. The much awaited 5 speed gear box variant was not brought in by Borneo Motors. Many paid extra and go the Honda civic instead.

    Given the branding and Qc of lexus, they probably have to ship a couple of senior japanese engineers to thailand too

    But I once heard that all lexus cars are 100% inspected on all the parts of the car by senior engineers? Anyone knows if its true?

    Sometimes buying a car in Singapore needs to be practical. I'm not looking for a car above anything more than 2.4 Litres. Maximum if i have the cash, i'll take a 3.0 Litre car.


    You may be able to afford the car. But don't forget about the ROAD TAX and SERVICING. Many Singaporeans buy big cars to show off, but later get stuck, being unable to pay for the instalments, road tax and servicing. Buy something that is practical, useful.


    Cars around 2.4 and above are usually for long distance like in Europe or bigger countries. For Singapore. I think a 1.6L to 2.0L car is good and decent enough.

    No impact leh, bumper swee swee one, dun even have any scratch....

    Like i said, Japanese are crazy over their pride. What you said above is true. Just take the Nissan GTR. 1 engineer assembles 1 engine by himself.

    Honestly, their plant in Thailand is not just about assembly... It's about cost cutting. Hence, some parts are not sourced equal. fyi.

    Haha. Then it's quality fault. Any way, as long as it's under warranty, it'll be fixed F.O.C. If it's really a persistant problem and Toyota cannot fix it within the warranty period, i believe when you send the car for servicing, you still can ask for it to be fixed. It's part of after sales customer service.

    True True. Not to say that they are not equal. They are similar, just not equally good. Haha.


    Lexus is still made in Japan. If that too goes to Japan, then i've nothing to say anymore. I don't want something that is cheap and horrible. I rather pay a little more to get something better.

    Oooh nice. He's rich i guess. Haha. Even if i could afford one, i wouldn't drive that. The Nissan GTR owns every single major sports car manufacturer big time. It's track records are just fantastic. Even beating the Porsche 9-11.

    If you can get close to the little sisters like the C-Class or the E-Class, just purchase the AMG sports kit. Exactly the same, just the engines are different. Haha.

    Actually the robbers have upgraded themselves. They stole so many cars, and they have a fleet of E class AMGs. Scary right. Thanks to Singaporeans who ride them over to show off, but don't know how to FLOOR the pedal when someone is chasing you behind. Haha.
