    WHY MALAYSIANS LIKE TO MODIFY THEIR CARS? SHARE YOUR OPINION HERE

    Today, we want to discuss a new topic with you. Why Malaysians like to modify their cars? Let’s share with us and tell us the modification that you have done to your lovely car. It is also the same reason why people wear different clothes. But, for car modifications, you must know the consequences of modifications that you have done. First type of modification that most Malaysians will do is change their sports rim.

    I’m sure that you will agree with me that Malaysia is different with the other countries. In Malaysia, car accessories shops are everywhere. So, it is easy for Malaysian to modify their car.

    Modification also called as “customizing” . It individualizes the vehicle to reflect the owner’s taste, sense of proportion and design. Some people just like to be different than everybody else.

     The body kit of this Toyota Vios look nice.

    Below are some reasons that our readers share with us:-

    1.They want to feel unique, or sometimes for economic of performance reasons

    2.They want their car to have beautiful looks, but have no idea about the consequences.

    3.They can’t afford to buy a new one, so they modify their current one.

    4.They really a car enthusiast, crazy about car and also love car.

    Modified Proton Gen2

     Proton Gen2 looks smart with simple body kit and paint.

    Some modifications you can do on your own. Speakers, audio, TV, rims, tint, paint, all this can be done at your own house and also by a logical person. One must just know the limits of what they can do.

    Other modifications such as body kits, exhausts, wheels, head lamps, tail lights, suspension, engine tuning parts, and so on are legal as long as the car is still roadworthy.

    Exhaust which is too loud or windows that are tinted too darkly should be avoided. Obviously the insurance companies would need to be informed but will rarely refuse to cover such modifications.

    Modification Rank in Malaysia.

      There are a few other reasons why WE Malaysians like to modify our cars:

      1. WE are after all humans. Throughout the ages we are searching for MORE-power, money, fame, recognition, etc and the search to be different, ala James Dean ‘rebel without cause’ personality.

      2. TAXATION-in the context of Malaysian market-If we can afford a Subaru WRX STi or an EVO X or a VW Golf GTi Turbo; why would we like to do anymore modification to a already high performance car? The reason is simple-it being taxed beyond our reach.

      3. LOOKS-cars sold here like anywhere else in the world are catered to the mass market. Which means it is designed for the ordinary Joe.

      4. POWER-all cars have the extra juice stored waiting to be liberated. Example on PROTON cars-A simple bolt on modifications like replacing the original air filter with an aftermarket highflow air filter, cutting the CAT, bolting on a tune length exhaust system can release additional horses. Additional phase of modification includes adding in a S-AFCII or a performance ECU and do a port&polish head and replacing a light weight crank pulleys.

      Having said all that, there is a caveat though…when you want to sell your car to a used car dealer; all the modification doesn’t give you the extra RM…which means you better strip whatever you can before selling!

    2. First off, we want to be special, but somehow can’t afford to have such highly features car, not because we do not have money, but with the insane taxation. Car models here are very limited, and somehow we can’t afford to see such same car of us around.

    3. FTZONE says:

      1. The availability of manufacturer, importers, sellers and installers made modification to the cars easier.
      2. JPJ rules are not so strict in terms of audio, rims size, body-kits & engine bolt-on upgrades.

      I would rank the following on what does a new car owners do to their vehicle.
      1. Windows Tinting, Price Range RM50-850
      2. Carpet, Price Range RM50-200
      3. Sport Rims, Price Range RM1000-4000
      4. Audio, Price Range RM20-1000
      5. Engine Performance Upgrades.

    4. betasub says:

      Niemans has summed up the reasons pretty well there.
      Movies, peer’s influence, hoaxs, extensive ads and promotions from the sellers/distributors probably constitute the other reasons for them to modify their cars.

      People are different, but as an average Joe, I would rank tinted glass window the top since it is important in a hot tropical climate like Malaysia.
      It is not modification, though, but a necessary element in a car these days.

      To each his own.There are many kinds of mod.Some like it VIP style,some racer type.Malaysian are fortunate as the Gov allow them to convert their engine with a limit rules.Here in SG you can do so but pray hard there’s no road block inspecting your bonnet and the seasonal inspection for cars aged 3 years and above.My personal preferances will be just standard modified with power cables,Air filters,Full exhaust systems,Rims,Suspensions…

      Totally wat i can said is interest.For me if modified a car u will feel proud of urself..SPECIAL (UNIQUE).But as Niemans said…if not cause of “gov taxation”..ppl will not go for modified..cant said like that..most of the mits.evo owner also modified their cars even though they buy wit tax. Wat i have to said is interest is the most important reason for them to modified cars.But~~~…interest and RM are in the same position…cause modified a car is not cheap…if its fully modified it will cost u much…that why most of the ppl choose either interior or engine parts to modified…interest put u in the first priority to modified your loving car..

    21. Niemans says:

      Human quest for more power is never enough. Yes I agree with you EVO owners also modify their cars like putting in extra performance parts. I am in view that if the high import duties is removed or significantly reduced more people can affort to own it and the need for the mass people to soup it their ride is not necessary anylonger.

    22. rboyz says:

      tapi satu kena ingat beb, buat apa pun tak apa kan… tapi yang pelik tahap cipannya tukar logo depan pun leh kena saman… sekolah mana aku tak tahu lah tapi leh try tanya JPJ atau polis….

    24. Botak says:

      Kenapa modified kereta?

      a) Senang nak cari masa parking kat tempat banyak kereta (kalau mampu beli yang rupa lain dari yg. lain, dah buat camtu dah)

      b) Senang nak naik bukit / gunung masa bawak family. 80kg sorang x 5 (termasuk drebar) = 400kg + 1,300kg berat kereta, power 2.0L kalau bukan v6, tak cukup ler, kecuali pakai gear 2-3, bawak 40kmh, nak memotong lori balak naik bukit, lupakan jer…. biar pun jln gunung/bukit tu straight betul.

      Pastu, kalu ambik kereta 2nd modified sampai 2.2-2-4L, tak cecah 100 ribu pun (bergantung pada tahun).

      Kalu bukan sebab roadtax, dah lama nak pakai BMW 750 V12 lama. :)

      Ataupun, bleh jugak ikut trend sesetengah orang.
      Pakai keta baru, tapi budget ciput beli tayar, pakai tayar 2nd hand, pastu terbalik masa bawak laju akibat percaya sangat ke idea ‘kereta baru tentunya bagus’.

    25. Comment says:

      Bukan kereta je di modified…tayar pun gak. Beli tayar yang toreh…
      Biasanya selain utk performance, modified just utk nampak kelainan…hobi juga kot.
      Apa2 pun hati pun senang gitu bila memandang…:-)

    26. rboyz says:

      semuanya untuk hobi kan… tak semestinya kita nak g belumba. sepatutnya sites macam ni yang kakitangan awam( jpj & polis) perlu belajar dan tahu kehendak rakyat malaysia.

      For proton car,

      We support proton but their product is not up to our expectation.
      When you get a lemon in proton car what you do?
      When you get frustrated by campro torque dip in 2k-3k rpm what you do?

      Modd lah.. from interior till engine bay modd many many times till you satisifed.

      For foreign make, we modd to get more power at the fraction of cost.
      Let say you buy a GTT for 100k and GTR is like 300k, so basicly you just convert to GTR with let say 80k of cost and get a not-so-ori but working GTR with 180k, still better than paying 300k right?

      Modding make economics sense, but in the hand of crazy enthusiastic modder, it doesn’t :)
