Motorshows are often associated with displays of new and futuristic models of cars and while these are certainly the highlights, such events also have other displays such as accessories and car-care products for the aftermarket sector which will be of interest to visitors.

At the KL International Motorshow 2018 (KLIMS’18), there will be a number of companies offering various kinds of products for motorists to make their cars look nicer, more powerful, more efficient and safer.

“Malaysia’s automotive industry players extend beyond vehicle marques manufacturers, franchise holders and distributors. The aftermarket sector making and selling parts, accessories and care products comprises a major sector in Malaysia. Participants from a spectrum of the automotive industry have joined KLIMS’18. Visitors can check out a wide range of automotive products, fuelling their automobile possibilities from vehicles ranges, vehicle enhancements and modifications, to a glimpse into future technologies and styling of cars,” said Datuk Aishah Ahmad, President of the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) which has been organising KL International Motor Show since the 1970s.

With growing interest in vehicle customization, both interior and exterior, in the ASEAN region, many global aftermarket companies are beginning to raise their presence and one of them, which will be at KLIMS’18, will be 3M. The company has been a regular exhibitor at KLIMS and has capitalised on KLIMS to highlight 3M’s total innovative solutions for the automotive industry’s mega trends in safety, aesthetics, performance and energy.
