Feel free to ask anything about cars and whatnot in Indonesia

Singapore prices are even worse. A new Mustang GT is S$270,000 or US$200,000. That is 911 Turbo S money in the US. Gas prices are US$6.50 per gallon for premium, and there is a US$4,000 road tax on the Mustang GT every year

In short, the Singapore government really doesn't want you to own cars, which is fair enough -- Singapore is small and traffic is already quite bad. There is also a very good public transport system available, which is often faster than driving anyway

One thing I found with Indonesian mod culture is that they seem to fixate on Top Speed. I have a friend that used to mod his Jazz. It ended up churning over 300 BHP, yet he does nothing towards the suspension, steering, etc

Do a bit of cosmetic works, slap a massive turbo, and hope for the best

It's too broad for me to specify. However, I'll be glad to explain here

For comparison, a Mazda 3 hatch (with a 2.0) here costs around $34,000. Though this may seem expensive, but if you compare it to other SE Asian countries, Indonesia is the cheapest country to buy new cars

It comes at a few costs, though. For one, you can't legally import used cars to Indonesia. It's why, for example, you have a broader selection of used cars in Malaysia
