Default Malaysia automotive scene : PICS

Was in Malaysia last month and captured some pictures of the automotive scene there.. there are hardly any big bikes but lots of cars with awesome after market exhausts.. infact, while i was staying in genting (a hill station) on the 17th floor of my hotel, all night i could hear cars with tricked out exhausts ripping past the curvy roads of the hills and the sound from the exhausts revebrating thru the mountain walls!

Press the F11 button to enjoy the most

Here are some pictures..

a kawasaki zzr250


notice the exhaust? common in Malaysia


What a hood!


Commonly seen SUV in Malaysia


Some toyota UV.. looks similar to the Innova


Super Luxu buses to Singapore from KL


A Merc SL in our hotel's parking


The E class which came to pick us from the airport. notice the body guard? A 6.5 foot high guy. I still dont know why he came to escort us


Hired this City, with paddle shift gears (at the steering wheel) for around 2000 bucks for 2 days.


The hired city's console


Line up of big bikes (harley, goldwing etc) below our hotel.. taken from 17th floor


Evo.. .number?


Heard this BMW coupe coming my way.. could manage to take only part of the whole car


Low rider..


The Sti.. one of my fav cars


My uncle's S class which came to pick us in KL

Also, that's not an Evo you've caught there (in black). Its a regular Cedia with some nice wheels (which is the norm in Malaysia).

About the big bikes, they are not used for everyday commutes. Catch them on a Sunday morning and there is a huge collection of some pretty tricked out machinery.

I thought as much but wasn't sure about this. The catch could be tail lamps, are they RT?

Headlamps. Evos have straight-top lamps, while Cedias have pulled-back ones.

The Spoiler is also very un-Evo like, plus the brakepads would be painted, plus a lot of other things like the hood. That is very definitely not an Evo of any sort.

Correction, None of the callipers are painted. The yellow thing which you see through the rear wheel is actually a painted section of the road, the speedbreaker to be precise....

Great observation there Salil. I was trying to locate painted calipers but couldn't find them

Actually I was wondering what the driver would be thinking about this Indian dude who is busy photographing his humble Lancer (its a Lancer elsewhere, no Cedia)

That's a Subaru Forester with a WRC-inspired bodykit.

It could also be a STi-spec JDM spec Forester. But the bodykit looks like an after-market one on a normal Forester.
