Filmed this 2005 Proton Waja 1.6 yesterday!
The Waja, which debuted in 2000, represents the first car that Proton designed themselves, both inside and out. However, the platform was still borrowed from Mitsubishi. One interesting fact is; this said platform was co-developed with Volvo, and it was used in the European market Mitsubishi Carisma and the first generation Volvo S40. Early versions of the Waja used either a Mitsubishi-sourced 1.6 I4 or a Renault-sourced 1.8 I4. There was even a stretched Waja named Chancellor that used a Mitsubishi 2.0 V6. From 2006 onwards, Proton's own Campro engine was made available. The Waja was given a facelift in 2007, before being replaced with the Proton Inspira in 2010, and eventually production ended in 2011.
This Waja is finished in Galaxy Grey with beige cloth upholstery.

Saw this rare X5 today. This thing is cool! It's a 2010 xDrive40d M Sport. And no, it's not a local model. It is in fact a UK-spec car.

Apart from the usual badges on the exterior of the car, the G01 X3 also has a lot of random X3 and X badges scattered around the interior of the car, kind of like 'Easter Eggs'.

The new electronic gear lever that this X3 uses is actually quite nice to use!

Filmed this all-new 2018 BMW X3 today!
The G01 X3 debuted in Malaysia back in April 2018. While this particular car, other test drive cars, and the media cars are all fully imported (CBU) units, cars that buyers will get in Malaysia when deliveries begin in July 2018 will be locally produced (CKD) units. However, no matter whether it is a CBU or CKD unit, the specifications are the same, and only one variant will be offered for the time being.
