Is that enough of a hint? Make a booking online by buying the Welcome Kit at RM5,000, which is also your booking fee.

Herbie and Hot Bug come dressed for success: leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, a 5.8" Touchscreen 'Composition Colour' with USB, Bluetooth and eight speakers; and seat trim covers in ‘Pepita’ fabric.
The important mechanical bits are a 1.2-litre turbocharged TSI engine equivalent to 105 or so galloping horses, 7-speed automatic transmission, and maximum torque of 175Nm, i.e. just flex your ankle to accelerate fast.
Herbie and Hot Bug have a 5-year manufacturer warranty and 5-year roadside assistance, just in case you you get hit by a wall or pillar in a car park, etc.
