  1. Hi guys, My tires are due for a change soon, and so I am doing my research for pricing and tire models at tire shops. My back tires have about 1.5 - 2mm of thread left before the wear indicators and the front, maybe 2 - 2.5mm. I know the wear indicators are there for a reason - when the tire wears to a point where it is flush with the indicators, it's time to change tires. But how close before it's time to change? Completely flush? 0.5mm? After visiting 1 or 2 tire shops, I'm tired of getting all the same sales pitch on how it will be sliding around like a fish once it rains, and unsafe etc. BTW, I drive an XC90 so there is AWD...may be less slippery? Looking forward to your input. Thanks

  8. Hi, Usually when we change the timing belt, we will change the water pump since they involve the same labour cost. But what if the water pump is leaking when the car is almost 4 years old at 40k, do we change the timing belt because we are changing water pump? Or is my friend mech trying to earn more money?
  9. I made my trip last week to JB to change my set of tyres Michelin 195/65R15 XM2 4pcs Made in Thailand 2016 tyres at RM240 per piece. The tyre performance was really great and I got saving of atleast RM500 as compare to changing to Singapore (Saving from Tyres & Petrol). The cheapest price I could get in Singapore for this particular tyre was S$120/piece, and thus the discount is at least 50% as compared to changing tyres in JB. You guys can check it out this seller at Carousel @ https://carousell.com/p/66822027/. The service was great and I enjoyed a good Bak Kut Teh at Taman Sentosa

    Tyre size changing.

    hi guys. My old tyres were 195/50/15 and i downgraded my rims to 14 inch. What size tyres should I use? I used the convertor and thought that 185/60/14 should be ok. But now the tyre rubs whenever i do a full lock or a sharp turn. Can someone please help me out? Cos the famous tyre shop that I bought from was so helpful when selling me the tyre but totally f*** care me and give half hearted answers when I question him about the problem. Somemore I wasnt even demanding a exchange, I mad eit clear I was just enquiring about the correct size so I can trade in mine and top up for the correct ones. But he simply just doesnt believe in after sales. I should have listened to the bros here and not got that shop.

    Changing of steering wheel

    Hi guys ... Is it possible to swap a non multi function steering wheel to one with multi function type.. from this type of steering wheel : http://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=735685&DL=1000 to use this type of steering wheel https://www.ebay.com/itm/232115494956?ul_noapp=true
  12. Just a quick check-in with your guys. I went to one of the shops listed on this thread today. The guy quoted me $80 to change my key to a flip key type. He said no need to cut new key, he can transfer the old key over. IS This possible ? Also, he said I needed to bring all my car keys (total I have 2 keys) and re-program all the keys at the same time. Does this make any sense ?
  13. MY current situation is abit complicated. So I just want to know if the options I'm considering is it feasible. Due to personal issue, I need to change my current car, which is quite new. Problem is I don't want to fork out too much for the new, so I'm considering a downgrade. Current drive, Honda Vezel 1.5X petrol. Less than 3 years old. Out standing loan around 30k. Market valuation is 64 to 69K. Wish to change to either New Kia K3 at 73,999 or 2nd hand MPV of similar value (E.g Wish, Sienta, Etc). Main issue is because I need to change ownership of current car, and can't change unless loan is settle. So only way is to change the car to clear current loan, and get another new loan. Is this move feasible in terms of monetary means. How much do I tend to lose from doing such move?
  14. After I updated my profile, my time settings becom screwed up. The time now reads as 11.35am SGT, when it's now 7.35pm GMT +8 (Singapore time). Can anyone advise how do I switch the time back? I tried exploring Edit Profile but there's no option for me to change. Thanks!

    Changing of car

    Dear all, Need some opinion on this. I just changed a car to a new one. The dealer did a full settlement on my old loan and took a new one. He also took my ic to go lta to do e transfer. A week later, which is now, I received another tax invoice from my old loan. I called GE and it told me no full settlement was received. I then called LTA and they told me no transfer was done. LTA told me that if ic was brought down, e transfer is done immediately. I called the dealer and he told me admin off, so can only get back to me on monday. Brothers, is this normal for e transaction to delay? This is my first time changing car, so I duno if this is normal. Advise?

    Any one changing new ride RIM?

    Looking for owner wishing to change their 16" P X 100 sport rim.
  20. Hi all, I'm thinking of replacing the current stock audio unit (of my Hyundai Veloster) with Alpine ICS-X8. Problem is - While the switches for the Auto A/C climate is separately located, the "DISPLAY" is integrated into the stock audio head unit :angry: I was trying to find out more, by googling, to over-come this issue but it seems that it's either not an issue or nobody seems to be talking about it. Hence, I was wondering if anyone here encounter similar issue and had overcome it (or had given up) ? Will I be losing the ability to display the Auto A/C Climate if I insist on changing into 3rd party head-unit ? PS: Hyundai Service Center's technician are equally clueless.... Sigh.
