    I don't consider to swap the car because my working environment is really rough. Is a waste if I buy something nice and drive it into a construction site if you know what I mean. Hahahahaha

    Now that's much better looking than with mivec hood. I like this look. Cut out the spotlight holes and put ducts to your front brakes or something.

    I had an auto wira A/B for a good 9 years before I finally swapped to a 5-speed manual and boy oh boy was that the best thing I ever did. My good friend mech even swapped out the dashboard meter cluster to remove the gear indicator.

    I say if you got the opportunity and extra cash - do it. Swap it out.

    How much cost you to swap to a manual?
    The problem I feel for the wira is,it is not enough gear for the car(auto one
    5 speed is ngam ngam for the car,since gear 5 rarely use on small road.

    Yup, that is why even my mechanic last time told his customer, Wira or Waja. These are work horses. Salesman, contractor, construction etc., most of them use.......lol
