Why is the bonnet popped open? Go car viewing for mid life crisis issit? Hahaha


Yah mid life crisis... But money not enough. Actually I am starting to appreciate some classic sport car, and that about it. Owning one would require a deeper pocket, along with a lot of passion and love.

Below is one good example of how the owner have ruined a classic, without giving it due love and care... Really heart pain to see the car in this shape [smallcry]

Lotus Esprit S3 HC
(<3,000 units NA version produced between 1986 - 1987)

BTW owner mod it to look more like the Series 4 variation, but if you observe the details, not hard to see that it is actually a Series 3 instead.

Didn't know Petai (臭豆) cost more than meat! This plate for $4.30 (if I replace the bean with say a meat, would cost just $3.40)...

Ps4 vs ps4st. So they are actually different tyres diff specs hence different weight. Might not have anything to do with country of manufacture.

I recalled someone in forums said that st means silent tuned but i couldnt find any official info on this online. So 1 year ago i enquired michelin about it and this was the answer they gave, as attached. I thought it looked like a comparison between ps4 and ps4s, not st. But they insist it is ps4 vs ps4st. Sorry i did not persist.

Based on what I found on Michelin website, it seems that there are only Michelin Pilot Sport 4 (which is listed as PS4 ST) and Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S (which have a different thread design, and available in only 19" & 20").

And last, the reply you have gotten from Michelin (for PS4 ST) are actual meant for PS4 S...

In all fairness, I can't even see the approaching PMD from the mirror, until almost the last moment before the impact.

Can any of you name some products by Volvo, other than cars, buses and trucks? Plenty of them actually... [wave]

Volvo used to have also a aerospace division, manufacturing engines mainly for military aircraft application, and even into missile development. It was sold to GKN in 2012.
