    Brake kits for 2006 Kia Magentis

    The brakes failed me momentarily at a traffic junction yesterday. Heard a loud continuous cracking sound when stepping on the brake pedal. Gotta used hand-brake to stop my car aka emergency brake style. I supposed the cracking sound might be due to rain water clogging the brakes since it never happened again today but I'm not taking any chances. Brake disks haven't been change since I got the car 5 years ago so I'm contemplating to do it now.

    Opel Vectra 1.8 MTA, worth it ?

    What's your servicing cost like ? I'm looking at a used Legacy 2.0R and Mazda 6 hatchback as well, both 07 models.

    <<At this market trend, resale Opel is the best buy. It's depreciation is similar to that of Korean car but u get conti quality.>> Very tempting indeed.

    Ford Mondeo MK3 2.5 V6

    Hi there, my previous ride was a Mondeo Mk3 hatch. 1) Mileage to change timing belt? - It uses a timing chain so no need to change (mileage was 125,000km). 2) Any pro Ford workshop to recommend? - I usually go Stamford Tyres at Tuas for my servicing. But you need to go Regent for major servicing (every 20k km) in order to maintain your warranty status. 3) Anything in particular i need to watch out for? - Look out for engine-mount bushing wear. I was told it's a design flaw. I have fond memories of it cos I mod it quite a bit (Supersprint exhaust, air-bleed device and open-pod filter). Can easily redline on NS-highway. It has excellent handling as well, much more so when lowered :)

    Mit EX VS Mazda 3

    Even the 2.0 manual feels underpowered when I went for a test-drive. Really have to mod quite a bit to get some decent bhp.

    Why Mark-X craze died down ?

    I still remember there was a time where everyone was raving about this car. What happened to the craze now ?
