    6th Gear
  1. I didn't sense any sarcasm there. Perhaps you are too sensitive? What you are asking of the ambulance driver is probably more than that capable of an average driver. Actually i would very much like to see you practice what you preach. From a distance of say 40 to 50m where the merc became visible, do the maximum retardation at 30m (to account for reaction time), then release your brakes, stabilize the vehicle and finally do your avoidance action. Better still, rent a van and video it. Show us all here how it should be done.
  2. Need to wonder meh?
  3. Shows that they work. Next test is a big truck or bus.

    Seems like good deal if you're looking for this size. Bridgestone Potenza RE003 225/40R18 (Set of 4 pcs) for $499.https://www.lazada.sg/products/bridgestone-potenza-re003-22540r18-set-of-4-pcs-i223961286-s341155491.html?spm=a2o42.flashsale.sale-1.50.76e87aa7IBq02I&search=1&mp=1&c=fs

    2015 Forester 2.0

    My previous 3 cars all had factory fitted sunroof, never leaked up till the 10th year before scrap. Simple reason is even if the rubber did not seal properly (never happened), there is an internal drain channel that drains water out of the car.
  6. Is that a very old car? I thought there was auto-levelling requirements for cars with HID many years back?
  7. Actually this is a good enough reason to change. Don't believe just got watch some youtube videos of the importance of curtain airbags even in front collision (e.g. IIHS small overlap front crash test), and that of ESC, ESP or what not. And Elantra should be compared to Civic or Corolla. City is one level below. Lastly those who say Korean cars drink more, aircon not so cold are still living in the 90s.
  8. Probably demand matches supply.

    OBD/aftermarket HUD (heads up display)

    Online better. Local sellers will usually charge at least twice the price. And they also buy from the same online sources.

  11. Read the facebook comments. Apparently this guy is famous for F&F in school zone everyday. Lots of people buey song him.
  12. https://www.onemotoring.com.sg/content/dam/onemotoring/pdf/Car_Cost_Update.pdf Gross margins can be seen here, and they do look very healthy. >10 years ago, my car was bought only for a gross margin of $5k. Those were the days.
  13. They do. But if it's high profile enough they will act quicker.
  14. Actually it's not feasible to punish the company for indiscriminate parking of their users. If you rent a car and commit traffic or parking offense, it's the driver's fault and not the rental company. Setting up designated bike parking lots goes against the whole dockless bike sharing idea, no wonder they chose to throw in the towel. Looks like bike sharing is doomed to fail here due to over-regulation.
