Car Prices In Malaysia

Posted by Syed Akbar Ali
Digest this article, after that, you may need to vomit. What is the Malaysian Govt doing all these while. Ripping off our Rakyat for the last 30 yrs with APs designed to benefit a few  well connected Bumis, the UMNO/BN have robbed millions of citizens in this fiasco, under the pretext of protecting our local industry. The Govt have forgotten we Malays are the largest customers in the country. What is the NEP policy doing ?? Ripping off the Malays (which forms 65% of the consumer base) to benefit a few UMNO politicians !!!   

BMW 535i
sells for RM178,000 in the US
In the United States of America
(a developed country which we are also aspiring to become by the year 2020) a 2009 model BMW 535i Sedan is selling for about USD50,367.00. This is only RM178,000 - about the price of a Toyota Camry 2..4L here in Malaysia .
The same BMW sells in Malaysia for about RM450,000.
BMW 328i
sells for RM155,000 in the US
The 2009 model BMW 328i 2 door Convertible sells for USD44,014 or RM155,36900 in the US
In Malaysia the same car sells for over
This is an untenable situation.
Audi A4 2.0T Cabriolet Convertible
sells for RM142,000 in the US
The 2009 model Audi A4 2 Door 2.0T Cabriolet Convertible sells in the US for USD40,328.00 or RM142,357.
In Malaysia the same car would sell for about RM265,000.
sells for RM85,000 in the US
In the US the 2009 model Volkswagen GTI 2.0T sells for USD 24,039 or RM85,000 only.
In China the same car will cost around RM60,000. Over here the same VW car sells for about RM200,000.
And the 2010 model
Toyota Camry 2.4L sells in the US for USD 19,659...00 or RM69,396 In Malaysia the2008 Toyota Camry 2.4L sells for RM170,000. Toyota Camry 2.4L, 2010 model. RM69,000 in the US
Car prices in Malaysia are about three times higher than the prices in the United States .
We are a developing nation. Our land and labour costs are so much cheaper than the US . Why are our cars so expensive? It does not make any sense. Tak masuk akal.
Then here are some car prices from our neighbour Indonesia
Toyota Altis sells in Indonesia for about RM46,000. The same car sells here for around RM 112,000.Again we are three times more expensive than Indonesia
The Honda Jazz sells here for RM108,000
.. In Indonesia the Jazz sells for RM 36,000. Three times more expensive.
We are paying ridiculously high prices (and actually impoverishing the Malays - who are the largest buyers of cars in Malaysia ) to support an out of date, out of touch with reality motor car policy.

We are paying the highest car prices in the world to support the Proton and other locally made cars as well as support a mind boggling AP policy which only benefits a relatively few rich Malays
. A disproportionately large number of Malays and other Malaysians are
being impoverished to subsidise the wealth of a few inefficient rich.
26 million Malaysians have to pay three times more for their cars just to support Proton and 120,000 people who are directly and indirectly involved in the motor sector in Malaysia and the AP holders. That is a ratio of 216:1.

This ratio of 216:1 is too skewed. 26.0 million happier people can contribute many more votes than 120,000 members of an inefficient motor industry.. 26 million unhappy people can change a Government. (The maths is not really difficult here)

And this outdated policy is impoverishing the Malays more than anyone else.

Here is some news from our DPM Tan Sri Muhyudin Yassin about our car policy. This is truncated:
Muhyiddin assures govt support for automotive parts and component sector
1. KUALA LUMPUR, May 26 - The deputy prime minister said special focus will be given to "facilitate and encourage" the development of the automotive parts and component sector despite the current global and regional economic downturn.
2. "Under the CEPT and Asean Trade in Goods Agreements, Malaysia has agreed to eliminate import duties on all products in the Normal Track on January 1, 2010. This includes motor vehicles, auto parts and components," he said.
3. He pointed out that the motor vehicle sub sector in Malaysia will not be directly impacted because of its heavy dependence on the domestic market.
4. "The Malaysian government recognises the contribution of the domestic automotive industry towards the development of the country."
Para 2 sounds promising but then Para 3 and 4 basically says that the Malaysian motor car industry will continue to be protected. This means we will continue paying the highest car prices in the world for automobiles.
Cuba kita kira : kalau kereta Honda Jazz di jual dengan harga yang sebenarnya (lebih kurang RM36,000 saja) dan bukan pada harga sekarang (RM108,000) maksudnya bayaran bulanan pembeli kereta akan jadi kurang, mungkin sepertiga sahaja daripada bayaran bulanan sekarang.
Jika sekarang orang bayar RM1,500 sebulan untuk beli Honda Jazz, kalau harga kereta lebih menepati harga pasaran dunia, orang kita perlu bayar sekitar RM500 saja sebulan.
Maksudnya tanpa Kerajaan perlu membuat apa pun (merangsang ekonomi, belanja berpuluh billion Ringgit duit rakyat untuk stimulus dan sebagainya) setiap rakyat Malaysia yang membeli kereta yang seharga dengan Honda Jazz akan dapat menjimatkan sehingga RM1,000 sebulan daripada kos sara hidup bulanannya.
This is like giving the car buyer an RM1000 pay rise without incurring any extra costs for the taxpayer, the Government or the economy. It will greatly reduce the cost of living in Malaysia and spur greater economic growth too.
Tapi sekarang, yang menjadi mangsa dulu dan yang menjadi miskin dulu orang Melayu juga. Orang Melayu yang paling ramai sekali menjadi pembeli kereta dalam negara kita. Orang Melayu kebanyakannya makan gaji - tiap bulan dapat gaji tetap. Bila harga kereta naik gila, yang menjadi miskin di saf depan sekali adalah orang Melayu juga.

In absolute numbers, the Malays are suffering the most because they are the most in number among the fixed income people who also buy cars.

Some folks said the other day that Proton has 150 major component suppliers, dealers, distributors and about 500 other parts suppliers too. Of the 150 major component suppliers, about 15 of them are listed companies. In total they employ about 120,000 people. The Proton supply chain is a mix of bumiputras and non bumiputras. But here is a sad fact : none of them are operating at their level best efficiency.

Our motor car policy is forcing Malaysians to subsidise Proton so that Proton can sustain major inefficiencies in the Malaysian economy.. This is not a good thing at all.

We have to unwind this situation. Set a target of 18 months from now to unwind all protection for our motor industry. Remove the impoverishing AP policy also in 18 months. Let Malaysian car prices reflect world market prices for the same makes of cars.
If a BMW 535 sells for RM178,000 in America , it should sell for a little less here in Malaysia (our rentals and salaries are cheaper). Fw: Car Prices In Malaysia
The Ministers continue making pronouncements about the car industry as though nothing has happened. I hope everyone will please wake up. The Government has a real chance of getting thrown out of office in about three years. The people will not accept inept answers anymore.
The ridiculous car prices in Malaysia is an issue that is just beginning to get more attention and publicity. It is going to become a really big issue in the near future. Be forewarned.

Subject: Treatment For Urid Acid And Gout


(Green papaya cubes with green tea :  cure for urid acid)

Uric acid sufferers who drink green tea with green papaya cubes have enjoyed very effective improvements.

Three years ago, my cousin brother has tested this formula and discovered that his suffering from uric acid has improved significantly and recovered finally.  And now he is only drinking it 1 - 3 times a month as maintenance course.

Those who suffered from gout also found this tea effective.

Professor Lai (from China School of Pharmacy)'s new treatment :

- cut the green papaya into small cubes.

- boil the papaya cubes

- add these papaya cubes to your green tea

- take it regularly

Rende Township, Tainan County's mayor Liu Qing was suffering from gastric pain for many years, after taking green papaya drink for a month, he was surprised that he has recovered. Some of his family members also recovered from gout problem after drinking this tea.  Drinking papaya tea is not taking medication, Liu, therefore plants a lot of papaya and distribute the papayas to the sick relatives, friends and folks.

According to Mr Liu, the best choice of Green Papaya (round fruit with large capacity), cut the top of papaya (to be used as cover when you are making the tea), discard the papaya seeds,  dig a small opening by the side (to allow the vapour to escape), put the tea leaves into the papaya, pour boiling water into the papaya and cover back the papaya by using the cut piece.  Tea is served.

According to the local farmers,  papayas will take about four months to mature,  when the papaya is ripe, thenutrition value will be much lower. Green Papaya harvested about three months or so contains high papaya enzyme, and vit.B, good to make drink with green tea, you can also boil and cut into small pieces, cook with pork ribs, or  fry with garlic and serve as a dish on your table.

FW: Rape-aXe: The Anti-Rape Condom

This is so brilliant ! An anti-rape female condom invented by Sonette Ehlers

A South African woman working as a blood technician with the South African Blood Transfusion Service, during which time she met and treated many rape victims.

The device, known as The Rape-aXe , is a latex sheath embedded with shafts of sharp,inward-facing microscopic barbs that would be worn by a woman in her vagina like a tampon.

If an attacker were to attempt vaginal rape, their penis would enter the latex sheath and be snagged by the barbs,causing the attacker pain during withdrawal and (ideally) giving the victim time to escape.

The condom would remain attached to the attackers body when he withdrew and could only be removed surgically,which would alert hospital staff and police. This device could assist in the identification and prosecution of rapists.

Fwd: Bubble Tea

Dear All,
I will roughly translate this articles which is in Chinese.
Bubble tea (pearl milk tea) brings alot of sweet excitement to our taste buds but it is also very harmful to health.
Milk essence is the main ingredient in bubble tea. Ten cups of fresh milk cannot match the taste of
of a teaspoon of milk essence. The main ingredient of milk essence is hygrogenated vegetable oil,
a type of transfat. Experts says that a glass of 500ml of bubble tea a day far exceed the allowable
limit of transfat for any person. It will lead to heart  and blood vessel diseases.
Milk essence gives the bubble tea the fragrance and make it tasty. The fragrance and tastiness derived
from a type of chemical. This chemical has trace of arsenic, lead, copper and many harmful minerals.
Long term consumption can lead to heart and blood vessel disease, cancer, asthma and other health
complications. It reduces the IQ of children.
Consuming the black bubbles is equivalent to consuming plastic. Normally these bubbles were made from
casava (tapioca) powder. This alone does not give the rubbery texture. To make it more rubbery, millet
protein is added. Some "black hearted" businessmen felt that this is still not rubbery enough. so, an artificial
plastic powder is added. This type of artificial plastic material will never be digested and absorbed into the
body. It will remain in  the body and cause havoc to our health. You can imagine what will happen to your
health after prolonged consumption of transfat and plastic!!!!


專家指出:每天一杯500 升(?mL)珍珠奶茶中反式脂肪酸含量已超出正常人承受極限,飲用者易患心血管疾病。
吃 ” 珍珠”等於吃塑膠?珍珠奶茶正因為這些黑色的小顆粒而得名,我們一般叫它為珍珠粉圓,公開的主材料是木薯澱粉。然而,單純的木薯澱粉並不能讓珍珠彈性足,如今比較通用做法是在其中加入小麥蛋白。即使如此,有的商家也覺得彈性還不夠,為了讓珍珠有“嚼頭“,於是再添加人工合成的高分子材料。
Don't drink any more!
