BMW Malaysia Introduces The Newest Member: The 8

These new Sensational Sports Car boasts outstanding performance, emotion-stirring design, state of the art luxury and exceptional innovation.

Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia with The 8

BMW Group Malaysia introduced The 8, the newest member to the premium automaker’s portfolio of luxury vehicles.

The 8 (7)

 

The 8 (10)

Developed on the race track to achieve supreme agility, precision, and poise, The 8 combines powerful engine with BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system and BMW EfficientLightweight design measures – set to introduce new benchmarks in the luxury coupe segment.

“At the BMW Group, we’ve always had our sights on the future, and the First Generation BMW 8 Series is testimony to that. First introduced in 1989, the luxurious sports coupe was bold and ahead of its time in terms of performance, innovation and luxury. It was the first BMW vehicle to introduce electronic drive-by-wire throttle, Dynamic Stability Control and Integral Active Steering with the use of multi-link rear axle technology. Three decades on, we have taken the future-looking legacy of the BMW 8 Series and we are bringing this luxurious sports coupe into the modern era to set standards for the future.” said Mr. Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.

The 8 is introduced in the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe variant, boasting outstanding performance, emotion-stirring design, state-of-the-art luxury, exceptionally advanced equipment features when it comes to display and control technology, driver assistance and connectivity.

The exterior design of The 8 demonstrates a modern form of sporting appeal with a new styling language focusing on clarity, modernity and emotional engagement. The car’s low-slung design, an elongated silhouette with a slim window graphic and a roofline flowing elegantly into the rear with distinctive ‘double-bubble’ contouring, a long wheelbase and wide track widths are the defining visual elements of The 8’s proportions.

The latest V8 engine with incredible power delivery and acoustics also debuts in the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe, serving prodigious power delivery and an equally impressive soundtrack, which is further enhanced by the flap-controlled sports exhaust system.

A new design language for sporting appeal.

Everything about The 8’s appearance convey pure dynamism and turns the luxury coupe into a sports car brimming with passion and character. Onlookers will be greeted by the trademark hexagonal kidney grille with its elements framed by a single-piece surround. The 8 comes standard with the BMW Laserlight – the slimmest headlights of any BMW model to date.

The side view is dominated by a dramatic interplay of surfaces using sleek character lines to trace the flow of the air exiting the Air Breathers. Whilst the surfaces curve inwards of the far side of the front wheels, they flare outwards again above the rear wheels. This combines with the strikingly tapered glasshouse to create a muscular shoulder line. At the rear, the interplay of horizontal and diagonal lines emphasises the car’s width and low centre of gravity. The LED taillights add to this effect by extending deep into the flanks. Twin exhaust tailpipes with a trapezoidal contour are positioned on either side of the rear apron’s lower section.

The BMW M performance model is instantly recognisable by its exclusive exterior appointments in Cerium Grey, an M rear spoiler and illuminated door sills bearing the model name. It comes standard with an additional front spoiler to minimise the lift that occurs at the front axle at high speeds.

The 8 comes with exceptionally powerful 19” M Sport brakes along with blue painted M callipers. The standard specification for the BMW M850i xDrive coupe also includes 20” M light-alloy wheels in y-spoke style 728 M with mixed tyres. Specifically with the choice of the Sunset Orange exterior colour offering, the option for wheels in the Style 728 M in Jet Black are available.

BMW’s trademark Hofmeister kink has also been updated to a tightly-angled version. Carried over from the concept car, The 8 features the ‘double-bubble’ which mimics the rush of air rearwards along the roof at high speeds. To reduce the aerodynamic drag of The 8’s streamlined body, it has an almost fully sealed underbody, active air flap control with adjustable kidney grille slats and Air Curtains including Air Breathers.

The modern and minimalistic exterior design language is continued inside the new BMW 8 Series Coupe, creating a relaxingly luxurious ambience. All lines point lengthways, automatically directing the gaze to the front and emphasising the focus on sporty driving. All control elements are clearly arranged. A concise surface design lets the high-quality materials really stand out. The use of trim finishers, for instance, is restricted to the sports car-style transition between the centre console and the instrument panel.

In addition to multifunction seats and the M leather steering wheel, the M Sport package include an anthracite BMW Individual headliner, M pedals, M driver’s footrest and special floor mats to inject the cabin with distinctly sporty flair.

The newly developed sports seats are upholstered as standard in Merino leather. The fulled leather trim for the door shoulders and instrument panel is also standard. Thanks to the low seating position of both rear seats, it has been possible to design the head restraints as an integral part of the backrests. The rear backrest can be split 50:50 as standard and folded down to increase the capacity of the 420-litre luggage compartment.

For the first time ever, active seat ventilation is also made available where the cooled air is sucked in from the interior then guided along the body to the seats’ built-in fans for particularly effective temperature control of the seat cushions and backrests.

Formidable power generates supreme dynamic performance.

KOTEX #SHECAN Empowers 4 Malaysia Women To Pursue Their Passions

4 amazing young women were selected from over 240 submissions, following a rigorous judging process.

KOTEX #SHECAN FUN RECIPIENT_PIC 1

Women across the world are breaking down barriers every day and sometimes, all it takes is a little financial assistance to give these women the nudge they need to embark on their journey to become the best they can be.

That is exactly what the first 4 recipients of the Kotex® #SHECAN FUND needed to pursue their passion and make a difference in the lives of others. They are now one step closer to achieving their goals after their entries were selected from more than 240 submissions from across the country.

“While women in Malaysia are generally not as disadvantaged as their counterparts in other parts of the world, there are still many who have been unable to take the next step towards achieving their dreams. The Kotex #SHECAN FUND was set up to do just that, to support and motivate these women, to ensure they have the same opportunities,” said Frenissa Lagman, Marketing Manager for Kimberly-Clark.

Kotex® is proud to partner these four amazing Malaysian women who have shown a strong, unyielding sense of courage, determination, passion and grit that embodies the spirit of the Kotex #SHECAN movement that Period or Not, She Can.”

Apart from eliminating period worries, the Kotex® #SHECAN movement has been driving societal change globally to help young women challenge outdated perceptions and misconceptions around period myths and worries by defying gender stereotypes to emerge as champions and to stand as equals in pursuing their ambitions, and to inspire other young women that they, too, can achieve whatever they set their hearts on.

In Malaysia, Kotex® kicked off the #SHECAN FUND in October last year with an annual commitment of RM100,000 to inspire more young women and girls to make strides in areas where women are currently underrepresented, from arts to education, to entrepreneurship and beyond.

The first four recipients the Kotex® #SHECAN FUND who will be awarded between RM7,000 and RM25,000, hail from varied backgrounds with equally varied pursuits. Their submissions detailed their ambition to engage the community and inspire other young women to overcome society’s expectations of them.

They are:

  1. artist, Nawwar Shukriah Ali
  2. aspiring dancer, Aina Amirah
  3. leprosy researcher, Atiqah Abd Rahim;
  4. social volunteer, Nur Adzratull Iffah.

Nawwar Shurkriah Ali, 34, has always turned to her art which encompasses drawings, installations and photography as a form of expression. It has helped her articulate her childhood struggles to show that there is hope and that the good will always prevail. She appreciates the significance of being a female artist and is grateful to Kotex® for funding her first solo art exhibition which will provide a visual insight to mental health issues.

“A person living with mental health problems often has difficulty to hope and find something meaningful to focus on, but I believe art is a positive tool to try to bridge that gap,” she explained.

For 23-year-old Aina Amirah, her faith makes her passion for contemporary dance that much stronger. As a recipient of the fund, this hijab-wearing young woman is now on her way to honing her skills to become a professional contemporary dancer.

“We should not be discriminated against based on our faith or forms of dressing. I am most happy when I’m dancing and I want to share the beauty of contemporary dance and inspire young people who may not have the confidence or the opportunities to follow their dreams and show them that the world truly is their stage.”

According to Atiqah Abd Rahim, 25, her eyes were opened to the struggles and stigma associated with Hansen’s disease, that continue to devastate those who are and have been afflicted with the disease. Following a research piece on Hansen’s disease (more commonly known as leprosy) in Sarawak, specifically in a resettlement village of Kampung Sinar Baru at Kota Padawan, Atiqah realized that age-old prejudices have led to people afflicted with the disease facing significant hardship even though Hansen’s disease is treatable.

“Thanks to Kotex®, I am able to use the funds to publish a book on my findings to highlight the struggles of former sufferers to show there is life after being cured and they too can have joy in their hearts,” she said.

Armed with a burning desire to help others in need, Nur Adzratull Iffah is willing to be put out of her way to do so.

“If you have enough compassion to see where and when help is needed, you are already way ahead of many people,” said the 20-year-old social volunteer.

She will use the funds from Kotex® to become a teaching assistant at a special needs school in Jakarta via an AIESEC Malaysia volunteer programme. Nur Adzratull is thrilled she will be able to pursue her goal to give back to the community and she hopes to inspire others to do the same.

Lagman added,

“We are confident that women are built for incredible things and these four individuals are just the start. We hope to inspire many more women across Malaysia. The Kotex® #SHECAN FUND is the perfect opportunity for women to share your passion with our panel of judges to bring that passion alive.”

Women who have faced challenges in realising their life-changing ambitions can continue to submit their entries for the Kotex ® #SHECAN FUND.

These plans also come at a time when the A&W brand celebrates its centennial anniversary worldwide this year.

Along with this brand rejuvenation, A&W Malaysia’s parent company, Inter Mark Resources Sdn. Bhd. has massive expansion plans on the cards, with plans to increase the number of restaurants in the country to 60 by the end of 2019 and 100 by the end of 2021.

This follows the take-up of the entire interest of A&W Malaysia by Inter Mark Resources Sdn. Bhd. from KUB Malaysia Berhad in September last year.

“These are exciting times indeed for the fast food industry, and we believe the time and market conditions are ripe to revive the A&W image in Malaysia to modern consumers who can look forward to a fresh new experience at our stores, in line with our expansion plans,” said George Ang, CEO of A&W Malaysia.

With the new opening at EkoCheras Mall, A&W is all set to chart a new course for the brand in Malaysia and it certainly looks like Malaysians are set to create many more stories and memories at A&W, truly making the brand a taste to remember.

PANTENE Inspires Woman via “Braids of Strength” Campaign

In the third phase of the #WANITABESI campaign, Pantene encourages women to stay STRONG, stay BEAUTIFUL and stay in SPORTS

In Malaysia, female participation in sports is also much lower than male participation. Data from the National Sports Council of Malaysia (NSC) revealed that in 2018, Malaysia only had a total of 1,844 female athletes as compared to 2,483 male athletes who participated in sports.

Realizing the need to help women to unleash their strength to stay in sports, Pantene proudly presents Braids of Strength.

Braids of Strength is the third and latest instalment of the #WANITABESI campaign which aims to champion inner strength and confidence in women to achieve their goals. This campaign aims to give voice to women in embracing their passion and inspiring them to stay in sports accompanied by the perfect hair braid, which helps them to feel confident and comfortable while playing sports. This campaign was announced in conjunction with the globally celebrated International Women’s Day.

Keeping an active lifestyle is vital to the success of the next generation of Malaysian women and based on the data from the NSC, Pantene decided to dive further into the issue. Pantene embarked on this campaign to better understand the relationship between women and sports in the country.

Here are the results from the poll:

● 52% of respondents believe that sports make women less feminine. This indicates that personal image is a huge barrier for women staying in sports.
● However, 80% of respondents believe that girls who play sports grow up to be stronger and more confident women.
● Over 86% of respondents felt that women deserve an equal chance to become a professional athlete.
● In fact, 83% of respondents believe that women can be the ones to bring home Malaysia’s first gold medal at the Olympics.

Through the research, Pantene also discovered that women often feel like they could not continue to participate in sports because they feel uncomfortable with how they look after each strenuous activity. Their hair will be messy and sweaty; making them feel very conscious of how others will perceive them. Pantene aims for every woman to be strong and beautiful; and to look good with the perfect hair as they play sports. It is as true about hair as it is in life: strong hair can handle anything.

Anggia Pulungan, Haircare Commercial Director of P&G Malaysia said,

“At Pantene, we are rooted in the belief that strong is beautiful. For a woman, her hair is both a personal and a public matter; it is a big part of her confidence. Through Braids of Strength, Pantene wants to encourage more women to embrace the #WANITABESI spirit, pursue any sport of their choice to boost their inner strength and eliminate their worry of self-image. By showcasing the perfect way to braid their hair, women get the confidence boost they need to look good. Using the right shampoo and conditioner will also help to solve the problem of bad odour, frizz and hair fall based on scientific data.”

The team of researchers and scientists at Pantene have developed a uniquely engineered braiding technique to keep hair both strong and beautiful. The unique style for braiding increases hair strength and reduces friction by immobilizing the hair strands which prevents it from rubbing off on the clothes. It also prevents tangling and creates interlacing points to provide blockage from sweats to be further distributed down the tip. Women no longer have to worry about self-image and they can continue to engage in any sporting activity, for as long and as much as they wish as they can now have the perfect hair from using Pantene’s superior range of shampoo and conditioner coupled with the perfect hair braid.

“As a sportswoman, I have had my share in facing harsh negativity and criticisms. Sportsmanship is tougher when you are a woman, and it is an added pressure to prove your worth and that you belong in this industry. I am immensely proud to be the campaign ambassador for Pantene’s Braids of Strength and share my experience in overcoming issues of societal expectation of women in sports. I am excited to help girls and women everywhere to overcome all their personal and professional barriers to Stay Strong, Stay Beautiful and Stay in Sports. It is time to show everyone the strength we are made off!” says Farah Ann Abdul Hadi, campaign ambassador and national artistic gymnast.

National sports shooter, Suryani Taibi who was featured as part of the Braids of Strength campaign video added,

“Embracing our womanhood through sports is at times, challenging but ultimately rewarding. I had my fair share of this experience when I was competing in the 2012 Olympics. At that time, I was 8 months pregnant. I powered through the training and still represented my country. It was a tough choice as I made my way into motherhood while participating in a prestigious sporting event, but I believe, as with women everywhere, you are stronger than you think. It is an honor to be a part of this campaign along with strong, aspiring women of #WANITABESI so we can show both men and women that it is possible for women to achieve great things in sports.”

In conjunction with the Braids of Strength campaign and to encourage women to take up and stay in sports; customers who purchase Pantene products in TESCO, GIANT, AEON and AEON Big will receive a golden ribbon.

The golden ribbon can then be presented to any Celebrity Fitness/Fitness First outlets in Malaysia where customers can redeem a free 14-day pass to the gym. The promotion is valid until 31 March 2019.
