Much cheaper than initial quote. Good job
Yes,I can save up some$$ to change the steering wheel. Hahahahaha
The steering come with the car is quite flat and does not suit my driving position.
My leg is long but my arm is not so always need to adjust the seat to front. For long distance driving is a bit pain in the axs.

Wira Update.

After changing the drive shaft & gbox oil. The car now is smooth no more shaking while driving fast.
Juz a little thing bother me. Last week I go for service and I forgot to tell them to use 10-50 engine oil instead they use 20-50 to my wira.
Okay....the car felt a little bit heavy while accelerating. Might go and diy myself to swap out the engine oil back to 10-50 or 10-40?

If not mistaken, 20w50 comes in SS and Mineral only. 10w50 should be FS........:driver:

Maybe you got strong legs.....

Wira update.

I had bought apair of drive shaft +oil seal=RM290
Labour+gbox oil=Rm150
Total RM440. Yup save a lot of $$$ when you go outside and buy yourself. Hahahahahah
If you know where to buy cheap then yes. Don't kena chop by spare parts shop, in fact make friends with them so they remember you and sometimes they'll advise which brand is good and which isn't.

10W40 or any W40 is good.

OMP Deepdish is better imho. Deep corn doesn't sink in as much.

Another thing I wanna ask.

Do anybody know the nut size for the crossmember? Mine is abit loose.
How do you figure it's loose? Maybe it's time to source a chassis alignment kit from Racetech or that other brand (forgot the name). One shot tighten the chassis, nut and all one go.

DIY lah...just dont turn too much at one time.i suggest doing 1/4 turn then test.
The thread is 'kasar' hence one turn will cause the rod to move in or out significantly.

You need to find the right amount of release you need to launch and of course enough to change gear without grinding.......lol
