Now juz step by step making the car nicer to drive 1st.
I had 2 choice
1 take this package rm3500
2 4g93 sohc lantai rm4500 but haven't tambah installation fee hahahahaha

might as well take the option 1if I still want to pay rm90 roadtax.Hahahahaha
wow. price went up eh for 93 sohc. lantai sumore. last time can get complete with gearbox for that price. swap fee usually around 700-1.5k depending on the parts needed to change. i advice bring a mech to check the engine lantai if you're buying that. or best just go search on FB groups for better offer.

however, i would still advice u to save up and wait for a 4g92 dohc non mivec or 92 sohc. save roadtax, a bit more mod than the 93 but definitely can make same or more power. also the 92 block stroke is shorter so u can up the rev cut higher. hehehe.

remove all seats and do thorough vacuum to get all dust esp under the front seats and between the seat and center console.

haha... almost bought the seat cover. But it couldn't come on time. Else I will remove all and do what you suggested.
If u can afford it go for proper re-wrap of the seats. Seat covers are just there to cover the original seats. My BLM is using such covers for RM280. Its black with red stiching. Looks good enough for me compared to the dust gathering original seat material. Once the rubber strip holding the covers loosen up, the cover will looks ugly. If u daily your car and always carry passenger this will comes quicker.

I use the black moon car seat cover. It does not cover fully but it does not heat up hot under the sun

I need to have an impact gun otherwise I wouldn't do it. Anything that takes more than 15 minutes to do for one wheel means I won't do it.

Not daily car. A dinosaur exhibit only. From the day bought the car... it only occupy 2 front seats. Rear seat still looks like new. Firm cushion. Was thinking to wrap the seat... an accessories in Puchong is asking for RM480 for all the seats. Ok price?
