Pathetic choices of Wagons in Malaysia, PROLOGUE to...

In Malaysia, the Choices of Wagons / Estates / Touring is PATHETIC.  So pathetic that one can count with your 10 fingers.  Here are the lists of Wagons/Estates/Touring ON SALE in Malaysia:

1) Audi A4 Avant

2) Chevrolet Optra Magnum Estate 1.6

3) BMW 5 series Touring

4) Mercedes C-class estate

5) Peugeot 407 Evente (Discontinued recently)

6) Volvo V50 Estate...

THAT'S ALL!  What a Pity that Malaysian don't APPRECIATE Estate/Wagons cars...  In fact, back in 2004, I had a chat with a Subaru Salesman.  He said it took 3 years to sold off their 250 units of Subaru Impreza 1.6 TS-Wagon (from early 2001 to early 2004), that's how SAD the conditions of Estate/Wagon market in Malaysia.

Second scenario, I walked in to a BMW Showroom (Auto Bavaria) and enquired about BMW 320d(A) touring.  The salesman told me the same thing:  They discontinued the model last year citing "Cannot sell" as reason. He added people RATHER buy BMW X3 instead. Why Cannot sell? 

Let me tell you why BMW Malaysia, your 320d touring you brought in is NOT of FULL SPEC.  Try bringing in the one with PANORAMIC SUNROOF and M-sport version.  Even, their BMW X3 also DID NOT HAVE Panoramic Sunroof (this one can tilt/slide UNLIKE Peugeot 308 OR Smart for  FOUR FIXED type.  The consequence?  

People flocked to Importers like NAZA, MOFAZ to buy Panoramic Sunroof-ed BMW X3 and X5, 5 series touring.  Padan Muka.  What a MORONIC Distributor...

Well, I will TRY TO CHANGE MALAYSIAN'S MINDSET towards Estate/Wagons. Over the month of July, I will Show Malaysians what they missed out by Kicking off this Campaign called:

"Estate/Wagon Appreciation"  Part 1 to 8.

With this campaign, I HOPE I can open the Eyes of Malaysian and change their perception towards Estate/Wagons.  In fact, they rather buy Ugly Boxy MPV OR Pick-up trucks than be seen on Estate/Wagon cars...
