Contilovers.com started off as a spontaneous idea between two friends who are mad about European cars. It all began right after the launch of the Peugeot 308 VTi and 308 Turbo. They realised that thanks to the decent pricetags of Peugeots (Nasim), Volkswagens (VW Malaysia) and perhaps even Fiats (Torino – read Bravo GT test drive review), some decent European cars were beginning to be more accessible to the more common folk.
European car drivers are usually more passionate about their cars as they are relatively harder to maintain so you’ve really got to love your European motoring to put yourself through that! They also wanted to have a place for potential European car buyers to seek advice and read REAL ownership experiences instead of just listening to the coffee shop talk about how European cars will kill you with outrageous spareparts pricing and various electronics gremlins.
Anyway after even more spontaneity later, the forum had their first and soon after second Teh Tarik session. After hanging out at Kayu Nasi Kandar in Aman Suria and having a blast chatting about our favourite cars and fussing over a mysterious Maserati-lookalike car, they convoyed to another location for a photography session.
There was a total of 11 cars that day and it was quite difficult to snap some decent photos of the cars all together in the dark. There were some really nice cars including a rare Saab 9-5 Aero. Sadly no Audis, though I was told some of the attendees wanted to recruit a certain “appealing” Audi driver on the spot at the mamak! ;)
