  1. Just received calls from my friend - Wira 1.3M $39,988! Looks like now more and more car price moving below $40K mark
  2. Hi to all current or ex Wira owners, I have noticed that the power delivery during top 3 gears for wira 1.5M are rather unresponsive resulting in slow pick up. But from 4th gear onward, the power & response seems ok. For an old model like wira, my FC is often 12km/l or more. Is wira a high revving car, dun get me wrong...I dun relate this to a civic vti..wat I mean is could the max power be designed to be at higher engine revs thus mey need to rev it to obtain the max power output. I ask this qn because I have driven many cars that pick up speed much faster than my wira but when they reached 130km/h or so, their response seems to be slower. However, at the same speed, when I tap the accelerator of the wira & the response still comes pretty fast even thou I could feel the lightness of the wira. What is surprising is at 130km/h or so, the accelerator is only depressed abit, does that explain the frugality of this car? Last qn, I realised when engine is cold, my top 3 gears shifting are often not smooth. I consulted mechanic and he explained that it could be due to something called synchromesh which quite a no. of cars also experience this. This feeling will go away only I have driven for a longer time in a day (example: covering at least 30 or 40km), and the gear change would become smooth. Can anyone here shed some light? To those if your reply is going to be unconstructive criticising a make or model, pls dun post anything at all cos this is a genuine discussion. Thanks! Cheers...

  4. Hi all, Does anyone knows how to dismantle the Wira Speedometer for repair? My brother's Wira's speedometer isn't working most of the time and the odometer (mileage) is confirmed not working. Even if that day the speedometer is working, the odometer doesn't increase already. The mechnics suggested replacing the whole speedometer S$300? But i did a quick check online and saw alot of ppl complaining about the same thing. Speedometer sometimes not working but odometer dead. But someone managed to take it apart and reassembled it and it worked. So I guess this could be because some of the parts inside is loose or fell out of place. I think I might be able to help him find a cheaper speedometer in JB but I worry this is a chronic problem and keeps coming back. Maybe all the used spare parts shops need to do is reassemble them and resell it again. I've also done a quick check in MCF but couldn't managed to search for anything. Appreciate some advise. Thanks.
  5. Can somebody who understands bahasa explain what is going on? Do they always chase this hard and cuff all speedsters now, or are these cars on the wanted list already? I swear I only speed on NSHW when it is safe to do so.

  10. I have a friend looking for a budget ride and he is considering the above mentioned Wira at 41k or Getz at 40K His budget is tight as he is only earing 4k and needs a ride to get to his workplace in Boon Lay (lives in tampines) We all know the following 1) Resale value for both i think non existent 2) Wira probably more powerful 3) FC Getz slightly better than Wira 4) Power - Getz really have a problem here 5) QC - Wira sucks big time here while Getz most probably way better 6) Which one is a nicer drive ? 7) Maintenance - Wira most probably cheaper as abundance of cheap parts and mods across the causeway 8) looks subjective but i think getz looks ok whereas wira need to put bodykit for it to have a slightly fierce look 9) Getz seems more spacious in the front whereas Wira has a boot and more passenger space behind He has considered all the pros and cons and is having a hard time deciding, just want to get a feel from general opinion to get a better gauge. one more thing he is taking full loan so most probably will stick with the car for at least 5 years.

    New WIRA???

    MCF folks especially Gadgeter... New Wira A Star Attraction Some manufacturers just can't help showing off. Why else would a car that's not due here for nearly a year be taken on a jaunt to France with only a bit of tape to hide it? The ticket booth at the Eurostar terminal is hardly a secret location either! The car is the Proton Wira replacement, which our sources say could get a new name. It was snapped by Peter March-Smith of Southwood, Hants, who said: "It was one of two waiting to board the train. The other was black and looked decidedly conspicuous." The car was in the hands of Lotus - owned by Proton - and is now undergoing final testing. Meanwhile, Proton is said to be planning a small sports coup

    Wira's Grill

  24. Hey guys.. just wanna find out the locations in JB where I can change the brake pads of a '04 Wira 1.5. The car belongs to my gf's dad. Noticed some burning smell and had to press harder to brake since yesterday. He doesn't have the intention to replace it until the next servicing date and I'm gonna replace it for him for safety reasons. I understand that it will be much cheaper to do that across the causeway. Any fellow proton drivers here willing to shed some light on some reliable garages? Very disappointed over the QC. Less than 20k mileage and the brake pad's already misfunctioning.
