The LTA would very much rather you not even contemplate swapping your engine in the first place. This holds true even if you're swapping like-for-like. But why is that so?
We are not suggesting that engine swaps are illegal in Singapore - they aren’t. But you can only do so if you swap your motor for an identical replacement, and even so, there are many other regulatory hurdles in your way.

Easily identifiable with its recognisable profile and the distinctive golden emblem depicting the bird-of-prey it was named after, there’s little chance that you will be mistaking the Toyota Harrier for something else.
The Harrier has been a mainstay on local roads as far back as the late nineties, when it was first introduced as the Lexus RX. Still need to question its popularity? A quick search online and you are still able to find Lexus RX models from the early 2000’s. But we’re not here today to talk about the Lexus RX, it’s all about the Toyota Harrier, in particular, the Harrier Turbo.

The Clubman has always been the obvious choice for the MINI enthusiast seeking more practicality than what the traditional hatch could offer. But can the JCW-ified F54 put the ‘fun’ back in ‘fun-ctionality’?
There’s nothing questionable about the MINI Clubman JCW (the same cannot be said for my taste in puns, unfortunately). It does all the things you’d want a family estate to do, with a large boot to haul groceries, and decent overall cabin space for four adults. But do not let the practicality fool you, for this car has a far more sinister side.

The MG HS takes the traditional sports car vibe and drenches it with an aura that oozes comfort. The end result? A product that reeks of quality and with premium interiors to match. The HS is the gift that doesn't stop giving, with a superb estimated fuel range and generous boot space for a medium sized SUV.
