BMW General Discussion
Sponsored by: AutohausAZ.com
Talk about BMWs in general. Post official news, Bangle flames, or anything else related to BMW.
A Singapore man who earned S$250,000 ($136,000) a year and drove a Lexus car, was jailed for nine months after stealing a S$130,000 BMW car, the Straits Times reported.
Chia Cake Han, the director of an investment firm and a former scholarship holder, admitted in court on Jan. 4 that he stole the BMW in October at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore, after finding the car's valet ticket by chance in the lobby restroom, the report said.
Chia tried to drive the BMW to Malaysia, but was stopped at the border, after the car's owner realized he had lost the valet ticket and reported the theft, the paper said. Apart from the jail term, Chia was also fined S$1,000 and banned from driving for a year for driving the BMW without insurance coverage.
Yea, "Suxass" is Toyatas' luxo car line like Honda/Acura etc... Jap crap in a fancier wrapper. (even though the Japanese do build tight rides) When someone asks, "as compared to US built cars" - I always reply - the US is building cars? Since when?
There hasn't been a decent US car built since the '70s. The US used to be the leading car mfgrs in the world. Since the mid 70s they've been playing "catch up" and using other mfgrs techknowledgy to produce cars. Then they dilute the market with 10 body styles hung on a basic frame/eng pkgs and wonder why they're cars are boring. Even the new Vets & Vipers are lame. US mfgrs can dress them up with some looks, bells & whistles but quality is built not assumed. If you get a chance tour a BMW factory or better yet (if you ever get the chance) Ferrarri factory and you'll see quality being assembled
