  1. Hello. Would like to seek some opinions here. Thinking of respraying my car as the paintwork is turning yellowish and there are paintwork damages (stone chips, dings and dangs) on the bumper. Previous owner also used liquid paper to try to mask up the stone chips. If I were to respray on the current bumper, after refibre/putty+respray, would there be a risk of the paintwork cracking after sometime? Or would it actually be wiser to replace the bumper with a good condition secondhand one followed by respray? I'm keeping my options opened. May be a good time to change new bodykit as well but not exactly familiar with the different types.
  2. Had my front bumper replaced and painted. The result is a terrible colour mismatch. Workshop said my expectations too high. I would rather say their standard too low. Any decent workshop would at least do some colour-matching before applying the paint, and not simply just use the paint code associated with the VIN. Very disappointed indeed.
  3. TL;DR - More road potholes spotted around Singapore after days of continuous downpour, resulting in imbalance of roads and bumpy vehicles. Potholes are just the worst. Watch this 63-second video of different vehicles driving past multiple road potholes. What are potholes? The smallest road flaws can develop into potholes. Due to water seepage and ongoing pressure from heavy cars, these crevices enlarge. A pothole is created when specific sections of the road deteriorate and collapse over time. In general, potholes are more likely to form the more rain there is. A small pothole can get wider and deeper if the traffic in the area is high. Read here to find out what you can do in the event you encounter a pothole that cannot be avoided: https://www.sgcarmart.com/news/writeup.php?AID=579 What happened? If you reside in Singapore, you’d know just how insane the rainfall has been for the past two weeks. The downpour on Tuesday (28th Feb) was heaviest over the eastern and southern parts of Singapore, with the daily total rainfall of 225.5mm recorded at Kallang the highest in 30 years for the month of February. The last time there was such a deluge in February was when 159.3mm of rainfall was recorded on Feb 4, 1995. (Source: The Straits Times) As a result of the continuous heavy rain, the number of potholes proliferated all around Singapore. The video submitted on SGRV showed just one of the many potholes that formed at Pandan Road. Writer’s note: Be mindful driving along this stretch! Online Comments A minute of silence for all the cars that have been lowered… So, if your car has been lowered, please drive carefully and brake early when approaching such potholes - trust me, it’s a different kind of heartbreak when you scratch your undercarriage. And don’t ‘geh-kiang’ and speed. You might just rip out your bumper in the process of acting cool. With the wet weather continuing throughout the whole of next week, we expect to see even more potholes. Thus, please ride safely and be extra cautious especially on the roads! ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  4. Hi everyone, I'm new here. Not sure if this is the correct place to post but I'm looking for a workshop to repair my Stonic 2019 model's front bumper grille above number plate (refer to attachment). Got chipped off after bumping into wall at carpark. Been to a few workshops at Ubi area but all told me no parts available. Was thinking of going back to C&C however the cost should be quite high. Appreciate any advice here. Thanks in advance! 😊
  5. Hi guys, I chanced upon this youtube online and the result of the repair is amazing! My front bumper is quite chui. Do you guys have any recommendation for such repairs? My bumper clips also goyat already. Please help!
  6. Most cars today has rather huge openings and lack of a protective mesh to deflect small stones and debris away from the radiator. Often causing damage to the radiator fins. Although these damages are cosmetic rather than detrimental, it is always good to maintain a clean and good looking car, and not to mention those unsightly dented fins on those shinny radiators. Here is a DIY video on how to remove a car bumper and installing a mesh to protect your radiator. Cost of mesh is couple of dollars from most Handy-shops or DIY stores. Most cars manufacturer uses similar methods on mounting their bumpers, so the video is as detail as possible without causing boredom to you. Hope you all benefit from it.

  7. Subaru WRX D.I.Y. Do it yourself everything in a day ! Managed to D.I.Y. connecting a car camera to a direct-wired power supply drawn from the cigarette lighter socket internally, hidden from view, and still able to have access to the stock cigarette lighter socket. Also, a cool peek on how the WRX owner D.I.Y his own STI Inter cooler mist spray ! Followed with a wire mesh wrap for his lower front bumper to prevent bugs and leaves, debris from collecting at the radiator or damaging it from pebbles and road debris. Next I have a requiem short drive in the WRX around the car park in its coil over suspension. It was comfortable actually ! Enjoy the video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6EeFxcCfVU

  15. A spike barrier is a security control measure to prevent perpetrators from using vehicles to dash through the Checkpoint. It can cause severe damage even to heavy vehicles. According to the Stomper, her friend was then told to file a claim against the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA). However, no assistance was given to the driver nor was he advised on how to proceed. Hence, he is now at a loss as to what to do. Jen, a Claims Officer, said her friend had related the incident to her. She told Stomp: "My friend was exiting Woodlands Checkpoint on Feb 20. Suddenly, the 'Cat Crawler' was deployed without any reason and caused damage to his vehicle. "He was at the ICA office for few hours after that, and all he got was his vehicle towed away and being told to make a claim against ICA. "But there was no indication of who to approach and how the procedure to make a claim should be like. No one was there to advise him. "We call up ICA and referred to a Woodlands Checkpoint officer, who could not even give us a clear direction. She replied that she was not sure as well." Jen added that they are still waiting for ICA's response and as such, the car is still damaged.
