      @MaleCortana i know the feeling. we owned a 4 door for almost 8 years. good car with low maintenance cost. Only issue was leg space and ground clearance issue. Now my brother has increased his budget upto 4.5mil :D

      Well...in that case...

      You do get 

      - Lancer CS

      - Corolla (export variant)..yes..it is a Corolla...but the thing is the cheapos stayed away from it because it did not do 23.567 kmpl. 

      and both you might find one with a decent agent's service history.

      I beleive a Swift (Beetle model) might also be there...

      A somewhat newer option might be a Hustler if a kei car that is somewhat larger is on the table...

      @iRage thanks man. Unfortunately he sold his swift beetle like 2 years ago. that was in topping condition 1 owner low millage car. Now he doesn't want the same one. so looking for other options. Corrolla is also in his list. but most are hacked :( 

  4. Looking for a reasonable place to program a roller gate key ( except three singha) :D

      I've had multiple issues with 3 lions whos service sucks like nothing I've seen before. Elcardo does all the work including programing of keys/remotes but may not be able to give the unit as it's not form them. Very good service, friendly staff, reasonable rates and a hotline. 0716844822.

      Thanks @mazdaspeed i checked with Elcardo. They don't program Three singha roller gate keys due to frequency issues

  5. Is it normal to reduce the KM/L after a tuneup?

    1. HaeylM


      Sometimes the ECU will take some time to readjust to the new throttle body settings and airflow. Hopefully u get better or simillar fuel figures after doing around 30-40KM. 

    2. PerfMad


      have done close to  5-6000 km still its little less. Could be due to my driving pattern has changed. Not driving very fuel efficiently as i used to be.

  6. Found a new Mercedes group (SL) and damn, I can't imagine where these gems were hiding all this time. Unfortunately non of them are selling their beauties.. But atleast starring at them bring a smile to my face ❤️

      Care to share the group with the rest 😁😁

  7. I don't think so. Because a friend of mine is using the car for like 5+ years and is being running on 10w-30 oil and have clocked 130k. Still running smooth. And I was advised the toyota 10W-30 oil is better for GP1
  8. I'm having a GP1. I was using 0W-20 as this is what's been used by the previous owner. But stafford advised me to change to 10W-30 considering the environmental factors of SL.
  9. Sometimes feel like I made the right decision purchasing a hybrid. But there's a part of me who wants something else regardless of all the expenses :D

      fingers crossed..

  10. Thanks for the complement.. well in that case its an easy job. Ya doing it with one jack is quite tiring .. had body aches for couple of days as well
  11. agreed. For a moment i thought the same. But then thought if it goes wrong i might not have enough time to get it sorted since i did it during lock down period and the nearest garage was also closed
  12. Actually I did it during a weekend. You can remove the calipers, but its a pain to reassemble if you don't have proper tools. Instead you can cover every aspect. I had alot of news papers laying around so i covered one side fully including inner covers before spray painting the calipers. Even the brake calipers and nuts, bolts and rubber parts were covered before applying the paint to make sure non of the unwanted areas were covered in paint. So if you prepare well, then less rework after paint job. You can watch couple of DIY youtube videos to get an idea about how to cover up things. Rest is your creativity I did some rendering before painting the wheel caps to see which would suit better and then applied the selected one. Painting the Honda LOGO was the difficult part (as you may have seen how much effort was put to mask it out and get it painted. + even after the masking is removed I had to take a small brush and do few touch ups here and there. If you have multiple jacks, its easier to apply paint at one go. But since i had only one jack, i had to attend one after another. So I had to cover one side per day (including wheels, hubs, calipers and all)
  13. Nothing to be worried. But before you apply spray paint make sure to prepare the things you are going to apply. I would suggest to take probably 800 and 1000 sand papers to clean the dust and rust in brake calipers and drums. Then you can cover the other area and apply 2-3 paint coats (as much as you want until you are satisfied with the job). Make sure to read the instructions and keep 15-20 mins intervals after each spray turns. I haven't personally done the tappet. If its alloy, you might need to use some paint adhesion to make sure the paint stick to it. If its steel kinda material it would be pretty straight forward like the calipers and drums i guess. Even i tried mine for the first time and it came really well. But took good 2 days and another week with some body aches here and there. I would say still worth it Good luck with your DIY. Given below are few snaps of mine.. Please update the thread as well if time permit.
  14. Uber allows vehicles upto YOM 2000 to get registered now. I guess due to pandemic.
