Proton Waja converted to BMW 5-Series M5 custom bodykit

At a glance, this looks like a E60 BMW 5-series. However, the lights and bonnet gave everything away. The owner has managed to kept everything clean and tidy, which is definitely a plus. Unlike most cars with custom bodykit, this Waja convert BMW isn't all show and no go; powering this car is a Mitsubishi 4G93 turbo GSR from the Lancer CMA5A, with Toyota supercharged pistons and port & polished engine head. It seems like everyone is trying to look like a BMW; we have a BMW E36 that tries to look like a E46, a BMW e36 coupe with a E60 custom bodykit, and previously we also have a Waja with a BMW custom bodykit

BMW 3-Series Modification - E36 Convert to E46 Body Kit

At one glance, you would think this is a BMW 3-Series E46. However, upon closer inspection, this appears to be a BMW 3-series E36 modified and converted to a E46 look. This conversions is so comprehensive, it literally had the whole E46 front bonnet, fenders, headlamp, and bumpers replacing the E36's squarish body parts. The rear of this E36 is also fully converted to a E46's; from the E46 tail lights, bumpers and an E46 generation AC-Schnitzer ducktail spoiler. From the side though, you could clearly tell that it is a E36, as the squarish profile remains unchanged. I personally feel that if he wanted an E46 so badly, he could have just sold his E36 and use the modification fund to buy a real E46 3-series. Maybe he wants to be different? What do you guys think?

MK7 Volkswagen Golf (AJK8033) in Cloned Car Case Abandoned in Kota Damansara?

Abandoned cars up for grabs? Apparently this one is a spanking good looking red Volkswagen Golf MK7, not some old beat up junk. One would wonder why would such a nice car be abandoned if it were not a stolen car used for high speed getaways. What is even more worrying is that these cars may have been resold or re-purposed, somehow acquiring roadtaxes or legitimate number plates.

One of our dear readers, Mat Cendana reported that there was a red MK7 Volkswagen Golf that looks strikingly similar to the one involved in the AJK8033 Volkswagen Golf cloned and duplicated number plate case.

Great that you have written a post about this. It also offers me the opportunity to add the following. There was a red VW, almost similar to the one on the left, that was left abandoned off Jalan Camar, Kota Damansara leading to the Villa Damansara/Sierra Damanasara housing area: http://s1294.photobucket.com/user/MatCendana/media/Social%20Media/VW1_zps5f4e003b.jpg.html It was left there from early this month, if I'm not mistaken, and only taken away some days ago. I had suspected that it might have been involved in a crime and was abandoned there, with the number plates taken off. I'm surprised the residents' associations here and the authorities didn't do anything immediately, until last week. Is this the same one as in your picture? If it isn't, then I'd bet there are a number of other similar VWs, and that there is an organised syndicate using this tactic of multiple number plates. The media and authorities need to investigate how serious this problem is, and who are involved. - Mat Cendana.
