Wira Update.

Is been a long time.
After Survey for sometime
I got a shop who can trade in my Auto gearbox and install a manual all in for RM700.

As I get quote from other places without trade in is around RM1.2~1.5k
are they gonna do the starter and meter?

Light weight rims will do wonders.

Good suspension, tyres and brakes will help you corner.

Tint will cut out the bloody hot sun.

A nice hugging Recaro will help you corner faster (I'm not even kidding).

The right bars will do wonders for handling too.

:biggrin:

Good suspension also reduce fatigue on long distance travel. Can feel the difference. Same goes for tint

Once he did the suspension he will felt that the chassis is not up to par and few weeks after that he will ask which bar to install. Good chassis 'tuning' + good suspension + good tint will makes him enjoy the car more.

Few month after that he will outgrew the car and felt like it car handle a bit more horses..

This experience thread will go on for years.

Rim I juz stick back my TE37
tyre I was consider to take advan fleva & hankook ventus V12 & RE003(my jazz using now)

Suspension part I think the set up I done ( Gab spring +kyb excel G, whole set new lower arm) is ok for me now. Had taken to KL once the ride is quite comfortable for me. Brake pad & rotor I had also swap out for a new set so is nice & good for "now"

For the seat part...I think after settle all the things 1st then I only consider to change it. Hahahahahha

Believe me when I tell you a lightweight rims will make a whole lot of difference. Auto or manual also - you will feel it.

Between the 3 you listed I'd go for RE003. Fleva isn't in the same category as RE003 and I don't like how soft the Hankook sidewalls are. They flexed so much in my car last time it made for a scary drive in the rain. But my fault la for driving that fast in the first place - flex + water + corner = bad feels.

As for seat - I just remembered yours is a Wira. Beef up security first. Get those door plates that block off the lock from people using a ruler or hanger to pick your door lock. Add a good alarm, get a good pedal lock set, and find a way to reinforce those locks from the inside so it can't be forcefully jammed out with a screw driver.

good for you.
mine just gave me a surprise with the "Check engine" light on. Connect to ODB and found O2 sensor failure. What will be the impact of the failure? Didn't have time to replace the sensor yet.
