My shock got problems like broken when go over hump gets better after warm up.

Roughly how much to fix? I scared fix local chop carrot. Also got some vibrations on my exhaust think it's just screw came out. So either screw bk or need some welding.

Can go to the workshop at the Shell station at Taman Sri Tebrau. Won't con you. But go early, there is usually a crowd. After leaving your car there, you can go makan brunch. After settling your car, might as well pump fuel and wash the car there.

And they take credit cards too.

Cc5 is MIM. Stated on the wheels itself

Went to swee hing and change my tyres. It's opposite e hawk Tayar at taman sentosa

Tyres r rm220 each for my 195/50 r15. Made in week 48, 2013. Include balancing and wheel alignment. They took my car for a test drive twice. Not sure if that's e usual practice though

Changed from Bridgestone pontenza tires which was noisy.

Tyres feel good. (Which new tyres doesn't?) below 40km/h, there's abt 80% reduction in road noise (especially going over those school zone). Going over rough patches in the e'way and I feel the road noise was reduced by abt 50%

Fuel consumption wise, no comments yet. But I felt more inclined to push the accelerator harder coz with new tyres, it just accelerate easier.

Compared to a set of toyo tyres which I changed for my ex ride, i feel it's almost identical for road noise. Comfort wise, definitely better than my pontenza (already a 3 yr old tyres)

Haven tried in wet condition yet. But for rm220 (sgd88 based on exchange 2.50), I feel it's pretty good

Probably gonna try the Michelin xm2 on my nx ride. Let's c how it goes.

How much does 225/45/r17 tyres cost. Falken or other cheap brands.


How about springs and shocks. Can hawk tayar fix these problems?

haven been to hawk tayar before so no comments.

as for swee hing, they carry dunlop tires. rm180 for the same profile as mine

in the end, i still stick to cc5, even though my COE ending in less than 1.5 years
