Your loot of the day

Need to cure for 3 days. 

It's what's provided by the prc sellers. Haha I guess I will update if they drop off after some time. 

Just whitish epoxy paste in small 5gm squeeze tubes. 

I'm most worried about the towel bar. Cos that is one solid piece of metal. It's supposed to be a dual option adhesive vs drilling one, but I can't for the life of me understand how to mount it. These chinese don't like to provide instructions. 

@Lala81 

if they don't bond well, or show signs of losing grip,... try Wessbond glue .. they have many types for different purposes, go to any hardware shop 五金店, they will recommend a suitable one.  Each cost less than $5, they bond longer that your accessories.    I used one  tube to glue a 10kg Ikea Lettan mirror 1m by 1m to the wall tiles in the bathroom twice, the first one lasted more than 10years... I had to changed it as the mirror became rusty.  So last year or beginning of this year, bought a new mirror, used the same glue, guarantee, confirmed & chop will not drop . .  .

Bought this OEM xenon bulb from China on Shopee at <$40. Cheap!!

Left side is ~5 year old original bulb when I got my car, right side in this OEM bulb. Really nothing to complain...

@Fitvip Wah, you have very solid memory!! I edited some details so as not to expose my identity here.

For my back issue, it was mainly due to poor ergonomic when I worked part time during my school days. Nobody taught me that prolong carrying load at wrong posture can cause long term harm to my back. Then during army time, the strenuous training also added some degree of insult to my spine and all issue starts to show up after I have a slipped disc 3 years back... [:(]

@Carbon82 Doesn't look like there is any difference.  Why do you change the bulb?

One of the bulb blown. So I did my trouble shooting by swaping both bulb around and confirmed it was the bulb issue (my previous car had PCB issue which is more costly to rectify). 

So started searching for replacement bulb online (local shop / store sell the exact same thing at >$120 and can be as much as $180 for 1 piece). Compare the product details carefully and eventually bought from this seller as all details match the original one from my car.

Original bulb from my Sharan

Replacement bulb I got from China.

The only difference is HBI vs CLC (might be colour code), but the colour look almost the same to my naked eyes. And don't forget I am comparing a brand new bulb with a 5 year old unit...

The only difference I can see is the "cup size" 🤐 It could be due to the alignments, driver side is normally adjusted away from oncoming traffic.

And thanks for the edit. Hahaha. I think only old birds from A1M Forum might notice it!

1440p is better, you can futureproof your set-up!

better dust off your CPU and maintain it properly. if you don't have intention to upgrade, cause the GPU market now is crazy! hahaha. Must take good care of it!
