    Hi there... if there's anyone out there looking to purchase a mint conditioned yellow F360, do drop me a tinkle.

    Thanks

    Hi Jez,
    That sounds like Alfred Tan's car, owner of Hong Seh who also co-owns Next Car (ex F dealer in Malaysia) as the family owns many cars across the two countries but could be someone else's (there aren't many 512TR). If you have the handbook, there's a page where there's a dealer's delivery stamp & signed by the workshop manager. Let me know what you see & I can ask for you.

    Dear fellow bros, with a heavy heart. I have to break this sad news to you that Vinesh, our Fchatter from the Malaysia chapter has passed away in an early morning accident today. He was in his beloved metallic grey Megan RS near Genting. I don't know exactly what happened but likely due to wet ground.

    When we first met here many years ago, he was a student and an aspiring pilot which he finally got into the flying training school, passed the exams and has been flying for MAS with two bars on each of his shoulder. His dream was to own a Ferrari. He is 22 and from Johor.

    A good mate. May he pursue his dream on the other side.

    I saw the news this morning on Facebook & could hardly believe my eyes. An absolute tragedy for a young man who had his whole life ahead of him. Having known Vinesh for many years I always kept abreast of his achievements & felt proud of the way he held himself and remained humble. My thoughts & prayers are with His family & friends.

    Yeah, he's a nice guy, what a tragedy. My first time logging into FChat after so many months just to read this.

    Drive safe all, esp during this festive season where traffic is heavy.

    RIP

    Coincidentally and sadly enough, his last post here was about 2 years back, on an accident involving a yellow Megane. His friend did not survived that accident too.

    Sorry guys, Vinesh was 27. 1989-2016 & last picture of him was wearing three stripes instead of two.

    He had a female passenger who is still in critical condition.

    Incredibly sad news indeed. Many will remember Vinesh as an awesome friend, and I had the privilege of finally meeting with him mid of 2015, after many years of exchanging messages on various forums and on Facebook. I remember us talking about the yellow Megane in Langkawi; it was a common friend of ours and also a pilot.

    Just before he purchased his Megane, Vinesh caught up with a few of us and we all told him the RS250 would be a good buy. When he finally pulled the trigger, the car belonged to our mutual friend. To an extent, I feel a slight twinge of guilt.

    I hope he is in a better place now.

    Very sad. One of my friend who is also a pilot, knew him well.

    Drive safe always boys and girls.

    Hei Bikz

    All the Malaysian chatters are busy driving their exotics, so no time to be here. You still have your 348 or you went for the slantnose P? You know of a place to get an aftermarket cat? I believe the cat under car is meowing the occasional slowdown light.

    Regards

    harmesh,

    around 2k++ for annual oil change at NI.
    besides that, keep aside another 2k for misc. you might or might not need it. this misc amount can also vary drastically depending on the condition of your car.
    the 360/430 forum here is your best friend.......anything and everything you need to know is there.....get a PPI done...check on the clutch wear and compression of the cylinders.
