How about 16th Motorised Division? Its reconnaissance battalion was the German unit that advanced furthest east and so presumably got closest to Malaya.
What is more, it was the only German division to be promoted through all the steps from infantry division to panzer division. In 1939 it was 16th Infantry Division. In 1940-42 it was 16th Motorised Infantry Division. By 1943 it was 16th Panzer Grenadier Division and in 1944 it became 116th Panzer Division.
