The Malaysian government has agreed with proposal for the restructuring of four highway concession companies under Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings (Prolintas) for the reduction in toll fares for the highways involved, said prime minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The resulting reduction in highway toll fares will apply from October 20, 2022 for the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), Kemuning-Shah Alam Expressway (LKSA) and the SILK highway, while another round of toll fare reductions will apply from January 1, 2023 to the LEKAS and Besraya highways.

All improvement works have taken into account the toll rate restructuring, and additional concession agreements are being finalised, said the works ministry in its statement at the launch of the new Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH) today.

This latest restructuring will save the Malaysian government an estimated RM8.8 billion in compensation due to the highway concession companies involved, and highway

1921 Haynes, Cars of 1912

1912 Haynes

Fun thing to think about: 1912 was Chevrolet’s first full year on the market. Now, 111 years later, Chevrolet is still around, but most of the brands seen below are not. It’s odd to think that this gallery is filled with the cars that Chevrolet buyers in 1912 either passed on, or simply could not afford.

Michigan Auto Ad

Excerpt from Michigan ad seen below.

Take special note of the Michigan ad. Until I read this particular advertisement, I was not aware that cars were lumped into categories based on horsepower. Or, maybe they weren’t. The auto industry was still evolving, and comparisons between brands were often difficult to make, as many of these cars were sold regionally, and could not be easily had in every market.

And, reviewing the ads below, it occurs to me that Detroit Electric would make a fine brand to bring back into action.

The 2023 BMW M2's angular faceOn the cusp of the electric car age, BMW is known for two things — extraordinary driver’s cars and exaggerated designs that put off some of the fanbase that loves them.

The famous BMW M division takes everything BMW does and turns it — on a scale of 1 to 10 — a little past 12.

So, if we told you to predict the spirit of the last purely gas-powered M car, you’d probably sketch out something pretty close to this: the 2023 BMW M2.

Teh 2023 BMW M2 from the rear

Extraordinary Performance Specs

Everything M builds from here on out will be either all-electric or electrified (a term that encompasses hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles). The high-performance team’s designers have always been master artists with fire and grunt as their medium. So, you knew their last pure example of the form would be special.

The M2 gets its grunt from a turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine

Electric automaker Polestar today revealed its third product — a sleek, sporty SUV with up to 517 horsepower and a targeted range of 300 miles between charges. The Polestar 3 will start at $83,900, plus $1,400 for delivery.

It will be Polestar’s first vehicle built in the United States, though its starting price will prevent it from qualifying for the $7,500 federal EV tax credit.

What Is Polestar?

Polestar is an all-electric automaker that started out as a tuner shop building high-performance Volvos. The company struck out on its own to build electric cars.

So far, it has offered two cars. The Polestar 1 is a luxury hybrid performance coupe that has sold out and ended its production run. The

Windscreens play an important role in our cars – enabling you to see where you’re going and keeping you protected from hazards on the road. Cleaning a car windscreen is therefore an essential task for all drivers throughout the year. 

Our
guide below takes you through how to clean inside windscreens and outside. Take
a look out our range of external
and internal cleaning products to prepare yourself for tackling the
toughest windscreen grime. 

Begin With A Wash 

Start
by giving your windscreen a wash with soapy water, cleaning with a soft cloth
or squeegee as you go; this will begin to remove the top layer
of dirt from your windscreen. Ensure the wipers are lifted up and pointed away
from the glass as you clean. Wipe in small, circular movements to avoid
brushing dirt away from you. 

Once
the dirty water has been washed away, gently apply rubbing alcohol
