Three lucky motorists experienced a rejuvenating experience for their cars and themselves as Grand Prize winners of Shell Helix’s #cleanmyengine online contest.
The three – Faudzina Khamis, K’ng Choo Wei and Noel Kuppan – each won a premium auto detailing package worth RM1,500 at Regal Valet in Bangsar, a 3¼ -hour Sultana Hammam spa package worth RM550 at Hammam Bangsar Village and a 4-litre pack of Shell Helix Ultra 5W-40 with PurePlus Technology worth RM235.
For product planner Faudzina Khamis, 42, doing online research on possible reasons for the coarseness of her 12-year old MINI’s engine led her to discover the online contest on Shell Malaysia’s website.
“I have always left the decision on motor oil to my regular workshop. I then decided to learn more about the subject and now understand how a good oil makes a whole lot of difference, especially one that can clean as well as the Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology. The experience has been so rewarding as both my car and I now feel spanking new!” she said.
Winner K’ng, 35, a Penang-based doctor, was represented by his wife, Lee Woei Lin. “My husband chanced on the contest online and participated as our family are Shell users. I am glad he won as both our family Peugeot SUV and I were rewarded with a thoroughly pampering spa experience,” said Mrs K’ng.
Self-employed Noel Kuppan, 37, a frequent visitor to the Shell Malaysia website, was impressed with how a sophisticated lubricant could be produced from 100% natural gas and submitted a creative, rhyming slogan. As a result, his trusty, well-used 12-year old Proton Saga Aeroback regained some lustre, especially in the engine compartment and the interior after a 5-hour detailing session.
According to Shell Helix Brand Manager Joanna Lean, the contest succeeded in reaching out to discerning car owners and amplified the superior cleansing abilities of the flagship Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology 5W-40 fully synthetic motor oil.
“We wanted our contest winners to experience something akin to what a motor oil with Shell’s revolutionary PurePlus Technology would do to a car engine. Imagine a motor oil made from natural gas that is so pure that it cleanses your car inside out so that you can enjoy an optimum driving experience,” she said.
Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology is tried and trusted by some of the world’s leading engine makers. The product has received OEM approvals from manufacturers including Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes, VW, Ford, Honda, GM, Chrysler, Hyundai and the new partnership with BMW.
