  1. Ready for Anything: Goodyear launches Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 Goodyear launches newest member of Eagle F1 family New technology improves dry performance, wet braking and handling EV-ready technology reduces noise and rolling resistance Ready to reassure, ready to thrill Goodyear has revealed the latest iteration of its premium award-winning Eagle F1 range of ultra-high performance (UHP) tires, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6. With new technology to improve dry performance, wet braking, wet handling and electric vehicle suitability, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 is ready for anything. Designed to suit a wide range of cars, including hot hatches, sporty compacts, family cars, luxury sedans and sports coupes, Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 features a number of innovations to build on the award-winning Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5. The result is a tire designed to both reassure drivers with its wet braking and handling abilities and thrill them with its outstanding dry performance and sporty credentials. Improving dry performance1, Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 features an adaptive contact patch and optimised cavity to adapt to load variations. While under standard driving conditions, the tire’s contact patch has a normal footprint, but this increases when the driver makes an extreme manoeuvre. The contact area therefore adapts to the driving style and increases as needed, giving the driver more grip and reactivity to extreme manoeuvres. In wet weather conditions, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 cap compound with innovative new resin system allows the tire to have more micro-contact with the road surface, giving drivers better grip on damp or wet roads2. Technology developed for UUHP (ultra ultra high performance) tires designed to perform as well on the racetrack as the road has been transferred to Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6. In Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6, this technology increases its flexibility to match or be more resistant to road roughness3. This resin system boosts tire grip on the road4. Every tire in Goodyear’s range is EV-ready, but Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 has been specifically designed with manufacturers’ EV requirements in mind. Its noise cancelling pattern results in a reduction of 1 dB, shown on the tire label, while its new compound technology reduces rolling resistance, to help increase electric range5. The result is a tire that is ready for the next generation of mobility. Laurent Colantonio, Regional Technology Director EMEA, Goodyear: “Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 is the latest in our award-winning range of Eagle F1 tires. With key innovations to improve dry performance and wet braking and handling, it is ready for the most demanding performance, simultaneously reassuring and thrilling drivers. We at Goodyear are proud to work with leading OEMs to push forward the next generation of mobility; that’s why Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 suits the requirements of electric vehicles and is ready to take electric mobility further.” Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 will be initially rolled out in 28 sizes in Q1 2022, with additional sizes released throughout the year. By 2023, Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 will be available in no fewer than 65 sizes from 17 to 22-inch fitments. The initial size list for release in January 2022 includes a number of popular 17 and 18-inch fitments, before further 17, 18 and 19-inch sizes are added in February and March. The range will be expanded to 21-inch fitments in April. (1) (2) (3) (4) Compared to predecessor Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5.

  2. Having used top-load machine for more than 15 years, would like to try front-loading ones. I heard that front-loading machines wash clothes cleaner than top-loading units although water usage will be comparatively higher. Also aware that, in general, Asian manufacturers make better machines than European and American companies. And a couple of Asian makers have recently come up with front-loading washers. Does anyone have experiences to share about front-loading washers made by Asian manufacturers? Are they good? Otherwise, what would be a good brand from Europe? Bosch? Appreciate and thank you your contribution.

  4. Sources: https://www.motor1.com/news/675922/michelin-pilot-sprot-4s-vs-continental-extremecontact-sport02/ The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S has long been regarded as the standard for high-performance summer tires. They offer very good performance on the track and work well on the street. Not to be outdone, Continental recently developed the ExtremeContact Sport 02 series and set the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S in its sights. So which one is better? That's what Tyre Reviews decided to find out. The two biggest knocks on the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S are its price and age. Michelin introduced the Pilot Sport 4S more than eight years ago, which is an eternity for tire technology. It's also one of the most expensive performance tires, costing more than $1,700 for a set of four. Knowing this, Michelin also introduced the Pilot Sport S 5 this year, which is not a direct replacement but an evolution designed for today's high-performance hybrid and electric vehicles. But before you dismiss the Pilot Sport 4S as old and overpriced, know that it still wins every comparison test, and if it doesn't, it's in the top three. Right off the bat, the Continental ExtremeContact Sport 02 is cheaper by about $200 a set. However, while that price difference is significant, the performance difference between the old ExtremeContact Sport and the Pilot Sport 4S was always minimal. In fact, the only real advantage the Pilot Sport 4S had in its favor was a better feel and steering response, two things Continental says it improved with the new ExtremeContact Sport 02.
  5. Hi, Anyone used these tyres before and how do you rate them? What tyres will you changed if it's down to these 3 choices? Btw am talking about Europe made ones.
  6. The German brand aims to be the most progressive tire company by 2030. Source: https://www.motor1.com/photo/6120327/continental-conti-greenconcept-revealed-at-munich/ Almost all car brands are on the road to sustainable mobility, emissions-free motoring, and the likes. Even tire companies, such as Continental, have also committed to becoming the most progressive tire company by 2030 in terms of ecological and social responsibility. To serve this goal, Continental introduced its Conti GreenConcept at the Munich Motor Show, amid the bevy of electric vehicles showcased at the relocated Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA). The German tire company also supplied sustainable tires for the VW ID. LIFE concept city car. The Conti GreenConcept, however, isn't limited to just presenting a new tire alone. The concept embodies the goal to minimize resource consumption across every link in the tire's value chain. That said, the tire concept is sustainable down to the very core, including sourcing and procurement of raw materials, even up to the ways to extend the tire's service life. According to Continental, more than half of the raw materials used are either recycled or from renewable sources. A good 35 percent of the Conti GreenConcept also uses renewable materials. Among the bio-materials used are natural rubber from dandelions, silicate from the ash of rice husks, and vegetable oils and resins – all leading to a significant reduction in materials based on crude oil. The Conti GreenConcept also uses 17 percent recycled materials, including reclaimed steel and recovered carbon black, as well as polyester from recycled plastic bottles for the tire's casing. Called the ContiRe.Tex technology, the company will be gradually rolling this out by 2022. Lastly, the rubber used for the Conti GreenConcept tread compound is 100 percent Taraxagum natural rubber, which allows multiple retreading. The green-colored tread baseline marks the transition from tread to casing. Undamaged casings can be reused several times.
  7. Here's a case of bad driving judgement gone wrong. Spotted on ROADS.sg facebook page - this red Bentley Continental blocked by a road hogger on CTE towards the City on 18/4/21. The impatient driver overtakes by filtering two lanes to the left but realises that the lane leads off the expressway. In a flash, the driver signals and swerves back to the right and smacks into the innocent bike on the centre lane. Thankfully the cam car managed to catch the Bentley driver in the act. Naturally, all the keyboard warriors waste no youth blaming the Bentley for the accident... https://www.facebook.com/roadssg/videos/142665334476260
  8. (Image source: Continental) Earlier this year, we brought you the news that Michelin and GM are teaming up to bring airless tyres to the market in 2024. Continental is moving in a different direction with its growth, and the German company has come up with a self-inflating design that says it is "closely aligned with the requirements of electric and autonomous driving"–because that's the way we're all going, obviously. The concept is known as Conti C.A.R.E (standing for Connected, Autonomous, Reliable, Electrified) and the headline piece of tech is the new, self-inflating ‘PressureProof’ system. Essentially, the force generated by the turning wheel acts on a centrifugal pump, which in turn generates compressed air. The air is then placed into the tyre to continuously maintain maximum pressure while you're riding around. Continental states that any surplus compressed air would be contained in an enclosed tank so that you would never slip below the maximum pressures and see a stable reduction in CO2 emissions as well as a small increase in the average fuel economy. Because everything has to be linked these days, however, C.A.R.E tyres would also use a multitude of sensors to feed information on things such as tread depth, possible damage, tyre temperature and tyre pressure to the device. Could this be the end of passenger cars? Will the autonomous car be taking over the road in the near future?
  9. Need to change the reverse sensor and the sensor at the front as well for continental cars. Do you have good and reasonable mechanics in the west to recommend. Which brand of sensors are you using. Thank you.
  10. My current set of Bridgestone RE001 (205/50/R17) has been used for 3 years and it's high time for me to replace them soonest possible. I have checked with 2 tire shops and below are what they have quoted: Shop A - CSC 5 (215/45/R17) - $230 per pc nett. (Inclusive of GST, installation, balancing, FOC tyre repairs & unlimited rotations every 10,000k with purchase of 4 tyres). Shop B - Bridgestone RE001 (205/50/R17) $220 per pc nett (Inclusive of GST, installation, balancing). This shop does not have CSC 5 but quoted me CSC 3 (215/45/R17) @ $265 per pc (High price as this model is NOT ON OFFER). The price of CSC 5 and RE001 quoted by these two tire shops are quite competitive. Which one is the better deal? Your feedback is much appreciated.
  11. 2018 Bentley Continental GT Is Sleeker, Slimmer, Boasts 48V Mild-Hybrid System https://www.autoevolution.com/news/2018-bentley-continental-gt-is-sleeker-slimmer-boasts-48v-mild-hybrid-system-120061.html For the third-generation Continental GT, the British automaker decided to make the four-seat longer and wider. The front axle sits 135 millimeters further forward, thus creating the impression the hood is longer and the car is more hunkered down to the ground. All in all, these visual changes are made possibly by MSB, the platform Porsche developed with the Panamera in mind. With Porsche know-how, Bentley decided to mild hybridization in the form of a 48-volt electrical system. The reason? Dynamic Ride System, which uses electronic actuators on the anti-roll bar of each axle. Not only does themild-hybrid system improve handling, but the new Continental GT promises superior ride comfort. The interior is, make no mistake about it, just as impressive as the exterior. For starters, you’re asked to choose between 15 carpet options, 8 handcrafted veneer plus 4 dual-veneer options, as well as 15 upholstery options. 21-inch wheels come standard, with 22ers also available. Despite the fact Bentley offers a mind-boggling 17 exterior paint colors and 70 finishes in the extended range, customization is infinite provided the buyer’s pockets are deep enough. Compared to the 2017 model, the 2018 Bentley Continental GT relies on a dual-clutch transmission with eight forward gears. The fast-shifting tranny makes a great team with the revised W12 engine, a twin-turbo behemoth with 635 PS (626 horsepower) and 900 Nm (664 pound-feet) on tap. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph)? 3.7 seconds, thank you, on to a mind-bending 333 km/h (207 mph)! Bentley refused to confirm if the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 from the Panamera Turbo S will be added to the range at some point in the future, but chances are the synergy will happen in order to make the Continental GT attractive to a wider audience. Slightly lighter than before (2,250 kilograms or 4,960 pounds), the Continental GT further brags with body panels that are made out of aluminum crafted using Super Formed technology. “We are the world leader in luxury mobility and our products and services define new luxury in the automotive world. The new Continental GT encapsulates our desire to innovate as well as celebrate our heritage and take the Bentley ownership experience to the next, unparalleled level,”declared Wolfgang Durheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley.
  12. Dear all. All new Continental Sport contact 6 launched. But think targeted at 19 to 22 inch. Maybe just launch. Wonder when will arrive in our shore. http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/Continental-Sport-Contact-6-First-Drive.htm The Continental Sport Contact 6 is here, and it's fantastic! Launched 1st September, the new Sport Contact 6 replaces the Sport Contact 5P as Continentals maximum performance summer tyre for sports cars. Initially available in 19 to 23 inches, the Sport Contact 6 pushes the tyre towards the segment the Michelin Pilot SuperSport currently occupies, and while it's not quite as track orientated, it should give the Michelin a little competition for those who enjoy fast road driving. Already ProvenWhile the Sport Contact 6 is new to market, it's already a proven tyre. The Sport Contact 6 is the OE tyre for the new Honda Civic Type R, which recently destroyed the Nurburgring FWD record, setting a 7:50.63, only 10 seconds slower than a Porsche Cayman GT4! To further prove the capabilities of the new tyre, Continental invited TyreReviews to Bilster Berg Race Resort in Germany to learn about, and test the Sport Contact 6. DevelopmentOur biggest criticism of the outgoing tyre has always been steering feel. The Sport Contact 5 and 5P were never short of wet grip, wet or dry braking performance, or even good levels of comfort, but for a sports tyre they felt sluggish, soft and frankly, unsporty. The engineers at Continental have worked hard to address this. They've designed the tread pattern with "force vectoring", which helps transfer the forces more evenly through the tyre to give a stable cornering force, and added a new "Aralon 350" belt to the carcass, to give the tyre structure higher stability at speed. We'll cover both these technologies in detail over the next few days, but the simple version is they give the tyre a 14% better steering precision over the Sport Contact 5P and 11% better dry handling. When combined with 7% better wear (another weakness of the outgoing tyre), 7% less noise and 10% higher high speed stability, the result is a very capable tyre. Our TestingSadly at the launch Continental didn't provide the previous tyre to directly compare against, but what they did offer us was the ability to run on the tyre in both the dry and wet, on various vehicles. In the dry, on a VW Golf R, the tyre was impressive. Bilster Berg might have a new surface with a high coefficient of grip, but the tyre was still monstered the lap, giving plenty of lovely feedback right to the limit, and a nice progressive slide past the limit. The same was true of the tyre on the Porsche Cayman GTS, Mercedes A45 and Audi RS3 in the wet, with the Sport Contact 6 harnessing the all wheel drive nature of the Audi and Mercedes to provide quite astonishing traction, and when using the RWD Porsche in torrential rain, still providing incredible grip, communication and balance. ConclusionContinental simply don't make bad tyres, and while the Sport Contact 5 and 5P never really excited us, they were nearly always best in class when tested. Now with the Sport Contact 6, Continental have produced an exciting, world class sport tyre. Tyre tests in 2016 are going to be extremely interesting! If you're interested in the technical details we'll be publishing a technical report on the Sport Contact 6 over the next few days, otherwise be sure to leave a review if you buy yourself a set.

  13. I was recommended these toyo tyres for continental car. I am looking for tyres for ordinary family usage. Comfort will be the priority. I hardly drive in rainy condition and even if I drive it would be about 80km/hr. I was told these are made in Japan. Would welcome any comments and recommendations.

    AGM battery

    Looking for AGM battery 850 amp for a continental car, 2000cc turbo. How much should I expect to pay for a reasonably good AGM battery. Any brand you used before that is good. Thanks.
  15. Any in-depth reviews on this tyre? Supposedly better than CPC2. How's the sidewall compared to CPC2? Still as soft? It appears that they are still selling CPC2. Don't think the CPC5 is a replacement for it. http://www.continental-tires.com/www/tires_de_en/themes/car-tires/summer-tires/contipremiumcontact-5.html
  16. Hi all japan and continental car almost same (or some of them cheaper continental) price now, but why ppl still buy japan car? example: honda civic 1.6 vs renault megane 1.6. the price cheaper megane(correct me if i'm wrong) interior : megane sure win engine : maybe honda win ? stream/ wish vs opel zafira/ citroen grand c4. the price -+ same !!! (the most only diff 1-2k more expensive continental car) interior + space: sure continental win engine : maybe japan car win ?

  17. Driving a Toyota with COE expiring soon... Have started shopping for a replacement car few months back but to no avail. Have also read postings of some cars shared in this forum. The more I read, the more I'm at a loss. No car seems to have a perfect fit into the so-called "ideal" car. Hence, hope the forumers here could help to shortlist a car that best fits the following criteria: a) From AD only b) Budget - Not more than $160k c) Type - 4-door sedan preferred (will also consider SUV) d) Make - Continental or Japanese e) Capacity - Between 1400cc and 1600cc f) FC - No less than 12 km/ ltr (highway 60% + urban 40%) g) Output - Prefer a powerful sedan (no lag up slope eg. Novena Square/ Ngee Ann City multi-storey car park when fully packed with passengers) h) Reliability which can last for 10 years with no major hiccups like gear box problem, oil leaks, overheating, etc. (normal wear and tear ok) i) Servicing/ maintenance costs (by AD or credible workshops) - Not more than $15k over the 10 years ownership Understand Toyota will be a value-for-money option but this time round, hope to try something different. Certainly appreciate constructive suggestions as I would like to complete the purchase by this year. No flaming please. Thanks lots!
  18. Anyone has tried on the the above? I have read up tyrereview and tirerack and couldn't come to a decision. I am currently on CSC3. Initially I was set on PS3 due to its handling better than CSC3 tilll I saw the results on Assy2. The thing tt won me over was the braking distance in both wet and dry. Not only tt, it has lower rolling resistance than PS3. http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/2012-...raking-Test.htm This I thought is quite applicable to our climate. Anyone has any encounters with the sidewall crack on GY Assy2? Thanks for your inputs.
  19. Hi all, I am interested in a 1007S. Anyone has driven one before and some feedback pls? Personally, I have test driven one before and nearly bought the vehicle. Deposit paid and loan approved but my brother decided to back out of the deal. So basically, the vios I am driving is going to the scrap yard in march. Thought of getting the 1007S and renewing COE. Any thoughts on this? Thanks
  20. any brothers have tried either tyres? like to hear your experience or if there are any writeups comparing the 2
  21. I'm just curious why Ford is categories as Continental car?? Isn't it a American ride?? Manufactured in Germany doesn't meant it is a Continental car right??
  22. Hi all, Does anyone know of a local parallel importer that brings in continental cars? Thanks
  23. Hi Bros/Sis, Anyone knows any workshop that currently carry stock for Continental Comfort Contact for 185/55R16 ? Have called a couple of workshops I was recommended to but they didn't have stock. Thanks.
