    Mitsubishi ASX

    1. Better choice would be a 2.0 turbo charged ASX! Now that would be much faster than the current ASX. We can only dream on! 2. Not many ASX on the roads is good for us ASX owners, the ASX becomes more "exclusive". U do not see an ASX everyday. Unlike Vezel / HRV or Forester, which u can see everyday.

    Have been told that lots of ASX users are on the Facebook page. Do not know of where you can do modifications on ASX, normal shops should be able to work on the ASX. Just shop online on taobao or aliexpress to buy ASX accessories. Lots of things available, but all made in China. I top up about 50-53 liters each time, I don't wait until refuel light starts blinking. When range is about 50 km, will go to top up on petrol. Drive mainly in city, so poor FC about 8 - 9 km/L. Can get about 12 - 13 km/L on highway.

    Another factor to consider is the size and weight of the vehicles, given the smaller car park lots around: ASX: 4295 (L) x 1770 (W) x 1615 (H) Forester: 4610 (L) x 1795 (W) x 1735 (H) ASX: 1375 kg Forester: 1519 kg The Forester is a lot higher than the ASX and longer/heavier too, also slightly wider. Not surprising that the FC for Forester will be higher as it is AWD. As it is, parking in some car park lots, already find it difficult to get out of my ASX without hitting next car park lot car door. Also, have hit the side mirrors on beams a few times while reversing into narrower parking lots, but fortunately no damage. So it is something to consider as well.

    1. Read that there were some problems with the 1.2T Qashqai model. You need to check the Qashqai discussion forum. I test drove the 2L Qashqai, did not like it as found it too bumpy with its huge 19 inch wheels. 2. Most S'poreans may not like the bigger 2L engine as Cat B COE / higher road tax. Also it is a really old model due for complete change very soon.

    Normally, you can collect the car 2 - 3 weeks after securing the COE. Strange that you did not book a CX-3 or CX-5 as those are Mazda SUVs.

    Agree that C&C Fulco is a smaller set-up compared to Tan Chong. But there is no point in speculating on the reasons for it. To the consumer, we do not really care about this, only want to get our COE. C&C Fulco already lost "Lawsteady" as a customer, he already bought a Mazda instead of a Mitsubishi. And some ASX owners here have managed to get their COE on the first bid. That shows that C&C Fulco can do it if they want to.

    Lawsteady, on 06 May 2017 - 2:50 PM, said: C&C Fulco is super lousy for COE bidding, CMI. Got my COE in 2016 only after four COE bids. Really slow, my previous cars (Nissan) all secured COE on the first bid.

    LED bulbs are not approved for use, if the car head light housing was not designed for LED bulbs. It can cause glaring and dazzle other drivers. And when you go for Vicom inspection, it might fail. Have changed my headlight bulbs to Osram "Nightbreaker Plus" halogen bulbs. It is brighter with longer throw and is LTA legal. But the life span will not be as good as the original halogen bulbs. You need to do your own research first.

    If you bought a new Mitsubishi, better go back to C&C for repairs and maintenance as still under warranty. Not sure why you would want to send to outside workshop.

    Getting about 9 - 10 km/L, mostly city driving, using Caltex 98. Normally about 450 km to 500 km before refueling. You can get 11 - 13 km/L if u drive on expressway more often. Just enjoy the ride and don't worry too much about the FC! You can buy the boot tray from taobao, aliexpress , ebay. Got free boot mat, so did not buy the boot tray.

    Is a subwoofer necessary?

    Yes, agreed, have stopped next to cars with booming thunderous subwoofer. Can feel the killer drum beats radiating through closed car window! Noise pollution, very annoying indeed. That is another reason why I am not getting it.

    After securing COE, should be able to collect car in 2 - 3 weeks time. Was given a definite date by my SE and car was delivered exactly on that date.

    Booked at Ubi Fulco back in Feb 2016, got my ASX only in late Apr 2016. Three rounds of unsuccessful COE bidding before securing the COE at the 4th bid. And that was after I spoke to the SE about it. C&C COE bidding CMI, for all my previous cars (Nissan) always get after 1st COE bid. You need to speak to your SE and 'pressurize' them, otherwise they think u r ok with waiting. Personally think that C&C is not that keen on getting more Mitsubishi cars on the road. For C&C Merc, my friend said that he always get after 1st COE bid. He pays much more, so he should get faster lor!
