My lowered spring is mid level. Not so Low. Think 3 finger GAP front and rear only. Yes to Low not good how to go thru custom so many humps.

Yah lo sian la Wife nag say why keep go the Carclick, say always very Long and ask me doing what for the car.

Got one point angry me ask me stay at CarClick to work as mechanic better.

3 fingers is good. Only down side to lowering springs is that you won't be able to adjust the damping rate, so you gotta go really slow at humps. If it's not good enough, you can add in those spring cushion buffer... although not really recommended

Wah CarClick is already the fastest workshop liao! My wife don't like me to go Sheng Auto cuz take very long, but she's ok with CarClick

I just did with carlicks 2 months back. around 120rm for honda original ATF.
its pretty standard for replacement of ATF. hard to go wrong.
120rm for the entire job .... or just the labour ?

Did you see how it's done.... just drain and refill or a proper flush?

Appreciate

Agreed.
Came across few workshops in JB/SG, the bosses suggest dun do flashing so often.
Any toyota owners here know how often should flush ATF ? 50K, 100K ?

Toyota Allions are not exported model so no owners manuals or any documentaion in english...

My last flush was 70K done by comfort delgro.. good job.

I frequent this aeon Bukit indah usually after visit to CarClick. Go there eat

Usually I park near the lighted area where people pay money for carpark.
There is this 2 huge parking area far away from the mall but still inside the gantry area.

Very dark at night and dangerous to park there.

Seems like they feel a hassle to steal conti car then normal Toyota wish
Are cars with keyless entry and start/stop easier to steal ??

Anyone knows if the keyless "key" to enter and start engine is encrypted ?

I'm on Toyota 4AT and I do an ATF change (not flush) every 30k. My ATF WS cost around 30bux.

I think Axio & Allion CVT gearbox is quite "sensitive", if CDG does the flush well then maybe you should go back there.

Yes. Especially after market ones.
New Honda civic also kena at Tebrau Aeon. The thief just walks to the car, use special remote to unlock and drive off as if he is the owner. Got video on YouTube. Go Google.

Best is to get a steering wheel lock for deterrence
