  1. Actually not difficult for the authorities to regulate this. They already have a platform - the annual or bi-annual inspection! If they start to take down the mileage of all vehicles (bikes, cars, lorries, trucks...etc) during each inspection, they would have very solid references down the road. When people want to sell or buy vehicles, this information is readily available on the log card or vehicle details. Of course there will be some special cases with mismatch mileage but that is for them to work out with authorities but the best thing is, buyers can turn away from such deal instantly.
  2. SINGAPORE - A used car dealer found to have misrepresented the mileage of a vehicle it sold last year had been ordered by the court to buy it back and compensate the buyer. But three months after the judgment, Performance Carz, which operates in Ubi Road 1, has not done so. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/car-dealer-who-lost-odometer-tampering-case-still-has-not-paid-up This is a good start but hopefully there will be stiffer penalties in the future for used car dealers tampering with the odometer readings.

    What were your expectations when the WS suggested a change of 1) air intake piping, 2) decat and 3) ECU tuning? Better performance (torque & horses), fuel consumption and perhaps a smoother ride? With that amount spent, did the WS guarantee objective improvements, perhaps via dyno charts? Did they also mention to you the risks and hazards involved? How did the tuner tune the stock ECU? These are the questions you need to ask prior to handing the car over in the first place. I will not go into details on how 1) & 2) can give you CEL but the WS should know better. For tuning, ask them in detail, how they access the ECU and what kind of "custom tuning" they performed. If they cannot give a straight answer, request for a refund.

    If you are still driving the Impreza 1.5, get it reverted and re-tuned back to stock. Get back the $1070 (I wonder what the tuner can tune anyway) and don't think of modifying it anymore. Last but not least, let us know which workshop and tuner.
  5. F1 is coming so Shell has promo now... 20-22 and 27-29 Sept. V-Power at the price of 98.
  6. Could not really comprehend drag races. In most situations, modifying the same car make/model, the cxxk with the deeper pockets will come out victorious. Perhaps bragging rights come when a cheaper modified car can outrun a more expensive or exotic bred, example [modded E9 vs stock F360] or [modded Proton Wira vs stock FD2R]. In comparison, driving on a circuit needs more than just proper tuning and setup of the car. The skills of the driver plays the decisive role. Drag: 90% car 10% driver (don't even need to shift these days?...) Circuit/track: 30% car 70% driver Why not pay $300 and man up at the tracks instead?

    Marbella DashCam Users

    Recently my KR6S begin to have gaps between recordings (normal and event, running in sequence). The missing 10 secs gap (both front and rear videos) was for a near-miss by a car who was tailgating me. Will be looking out for Yi or 70mai dashcams since I seldom drive the car these day. Hopefully some promos during Comex if not will be shopping from the usual online stores.
  8. You use a 15cm ruler, draw 2 perpendicular curves that is same width and length as the ruler on an A4 paper and do a turn with your hand, you will understand.
  9. Got 10×$5 SPC coupons for August to give away. Sorry left 1 day for you to pump tomorrow. Interested please pm me. Collection is at Yishun (tonight at SPC is fine, maybe set 1 timing). SPC Yishun has 18% discount or you can use at AMK for the new sheet (if still available).

    Elderly man killed by falling wine bottle at condo

    https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/man-arrested-after-allegedly-throwing-bottle-from-condo-causing-74-year-olds SINGAPORE - An Australian man has been charged over his alleged involvement in an incident at a condominium in Spottiswoode Park Road in which a 73-year-old man died after he was struck by a glass bottle. Andrew Gosling, who appeared in court on Friday (Aug 30), was charged with one count of causing death by performing a rash act. On Aug 18, Mr Nasiari Sunee, a delivery driver, was at a housewarming party of a relative at the Spottiswoode 18 condominium's barbecue pit area when a bottle hit him just as he was about to eat. The oldest of his four children, service manager Nas Suriati Nasiari, 44, told The Straits Times that relatives suddenly heard two thuds before her father collapsed on the ground with a head wound. They then spotted an intact glass bottle nearby. A relative, who is a nurse, tended to Mr Nasiari before he was taken by ambulance to the Singapore General Hospital about 8.35pm. Madam Nas Suriati said that his heart stopped thrice during treatment and the family decided not to resuscitate him if it stopped a fourth time. "We didn't want to prolong the pain," she said. Mr Nasiari's blood pressure plunged the next morning and he died around 9am. The grandfather of nine was buried on Aug 20. Following the incident, police went door to door at Spottiswoode 18 to look for the person responsible for causing the bottle to fall from the 35-storey building. Residents told The Straits Times that officers showed them a picture of an Italian wine bottle. They were also asked if they had been drinking wine and were willing to provide fingerprint samples. Last year, the National Environment Agency took action on more than 1,200 cases of high-rise littering, and cameras were deployed in more than 1,000 areas with a persistent high-rise littering problem. If convicted of the offence, Gosling can be jailed for up to five years and fined. He will be back in court next Tuesday.

    I believe there will be recycling bins for glass / plastic bottles at the void deck or something. When going to the car park, can just bring along and dispose inside the recycling bin. Leaving rubbish or unwanted items outside own unit is like inviting trouble.

    Parking Rules and Penalties

    Don't think HDB is so strict on the rules you mentioned. 14a. Repairing/ allowing repairs to a motor vehicle in a parking place. ($80 fine) If you go up to the higher levels and do DIY small projects like EO change, brakes cleaning, rotate wheels...etc, they usually won't care much. Just don't attempt to drop engine or change radiator with coolant dripping all over the floor lah. Key words - no complains from members of public. That one GG very fast. 14b. Using a motor vehicle within a parking place for sale or promoting the sale of goods of any kind. ($80 fine) I think they meant opening up the boot of your van/car to sell home speakers or durians. Not some pamphlets or stickers. 14c. Cause/ allow vehicle to be washed in a parking place. ($80) Usually foreign worker will use cloth and wipe then rinse in their pail. No hose, no scoop. To me, I think more "wiping" than "washing".
