There has been a lot of talk in the media about how Malaysia’s car culture is dying. This refers to the subculture of Malaysians who own, drive and modify their vehicles according to the tribe they resonate with, often accompanied by their family, friends, and other people they know and associate with. These automotive cultures have been around for decades, and it is not going anywhere soon, contrary to the famous saying about this culture dying phenomenon. Some factors may cause this subculture to hang on a little bit longer and thrive back to its glorious day in the future.
Malaysia’s car culture has been almost killed thanks to the pandemic. Many people have been trapped at home, others decided not to go out, and some couldn’t even buy food or groceries. But now that the lockdown is over, we can see life back to normal again. Early last month, we had one of Malaysia’s most significant automotive show events, The 1oth Annual Art of Speed Malaysia 2022, held in MAEPS, Serdang. The Driwego team was there, and we had a great time admiring the custom-built vehicles and talking to the automotive enthusiasts. When the phrase “Custom Built” comes to mind, you can be sure that it has been built by someone who knows what they’re doing. This event showcases what can be achieved when a talented person and his vision come together to create something unique. Whether you are looking for a new vehicle to customize or admire the talent and innovation that goes into the cars, this is a one-of-a-kind experience you will never forget.
With the abundance of information today, it’s challenging to sift through all the information to find what you need. Automotive has always inspired us, and we have curated a platform that provides access to experts, cultures, and resources. Whether you are into custom culture, drifting motorsport, or performance, there is something for you on Driwego. There are almost every part and service for everyone with every budget for you to compare and decide. The automotive industry is constantly moving, with new innovations and technologies being created daily. It’s a fascinating world that never fails to surprise us with its constant innovation, so we wanted to share that passion with you. That’s why we created Driwego – an online marketplace where you can find everything related to cars in one place.
While technology evolves, and we can see countless innovations in the automotive car industry, automotive workshops are some way still operates traditionally. They play an essential role in maintaining the car culture, especially in car modification. Nonetheless, the car owners are still wondering where those cars they’d seen on the road got their ride modified. The ever-evolving car workshops are looking to offer their expertise to the passionate car owner to work on their beloved car. The car culture is developing rapidly, and many enthusiasts are looking for the best automotive workshop to modify their vehicles. The market is filled with generic workshops, but a few stand out from the crowd. These automotive workshops offer expertise in changing cars according to their owner’s specifications.
I personally think car tribalism is a big part of Asian culture. Cars there are more like a tool and only necessary to you than something you own. We love them so much here because it means something to us. The community is strong, and people get together for events like Art of Speed. We got to see how people from different parts of the world can share this passion for cars and be accepted by each other, no matter their language. It was a great experience, and I hope to see more people come out of their shells and share this passion with us. We’re all here for the same reason, and we should be able to get along without any problems.
So, yeah. I don’t think car cultures are going anywhere soon. Kids with Myvi and Kelisa are still visible on the road with their creativity in modifying their cars into something they are proud of. Despite the capabilities and specifications of vehicles, their creativity and uniqueness still hold a special place in the hearts of many people. There is something about modifying vehicles that makes our kids so interested in them. Even in age 40s, my love for car culture remains strong through those brilliant minds that make some changes to them by adding parts such as wheels, seats, and other accessories.
