I decided to visit Titan on Saturday 16 Oct coz i happen 2 b around the area. When i reached there, neither Richard (has gone out for lunch) nor Stanley (the secretary said might not b workin) was around. So i decided to wait for Richard n after 15 min. he came back.... He was extremely helpful n actually explained how suspension is all about.

Heres the best part.... The Cefiro test ride... simply awesome!! Long wheel base car n taking corners really really hard!!! "Oh shit!!! Over!!Over!!" :huh: :o :blink:

Suprisingly the car wouldnt oversteer one bit eventhough taking the inside line doin quite close to 90 deg turns. Theres the feel of near to "0" body roll!!! Onli me n my wife sliding on the backseat left to rite.... Hard braking n hard acceleration wouldnt lift or dive the mighty titaned cefiro!!! N mind u again itz a long wheel base car.... He even demonstrated by driving onto the grass by the side of the road.... Feels like a dream.....

I m sold!! :)

Tell u guys the truth.... i hav heard all this while Titan's r good but overrated at times!!! But after goin for the demo.... "They Walk the Talk" ..... n definitely worth the money!!

PS.... Stan, juz to let u know i will bring my car in most prob after the 26/10 coz car still in workshop.... can set my car similarly like the cefiro?? ;)

Foowhaarr .... Nice!

Review will sound something like this...

Date xx/xx. Time 8xx am
Today, just chew up a xTI for breakfast while taking the Jln Ampang Corner to Jln Sultan Ismail. Suprisingly, felt a slight slide but still still far away from the Monorail kerb. No problem, xTI is like a few cars behind during corner, cant even keep up on the straights what more at the bends.

Time 1xx pm
Went for lunch, brake late with the twin pots and out corner a ExOVII going out to Federal .. those bumps along old klang road, What bumps??

Time 2xx am
Send GF back home. WOW, damn short skirt she wearing, my eyes and Ku ku chiao almost pop out. On way back took the Semantan corner turning to Parliment at 150kph, car was going sideways, scary but need to send blood to somewhere else than between the legs.

............................. :lol: :P

heres my first reviews (mind u, my titans was fitted but not tuned yet bcoz i had a drive shaft problem)

the ride was firm, not hard nor bumpy....... the car felt more planted even wif my 20% left silverstone ftz sport tyres............. ok la.... botak tyres lah....

it takes the weight of the car very well n for once in my car's dinosaur life (c my car la in pg 2, 20 years old..... no shit!!) it handles like a mid-sized car (some what like a eg civic)......

it may sound exaggerating to u but i can honestly tell u these coilovers really do wonders..... i wouldnt say its perfect but for RM2.8k its close to it...... (u can actually compare it with great brands like tein or hks, dont b suprised it could b more to your liking)

initial part when it is fitted, dun expect it to b to ur liking but u will instinctively know its a great improvement. this is where u hav to feed back to uncle richard on the setup of your preference once the coilovers has set in...... the rest is for u to experience......

for now this wat i hav experienced!!! the final review is soon to come after my tuning session with uncle richard....


Note : These reviews are my personal views n not in any way biased/influenced by any1 else. I m also a consumer who wants to ensure my hard earned money is well invested into upgrade parts which is to my expected outcome.

At last!! The long awaited review which i owe some ppl...... :)

I matched the Titans wif a set of Neovas (Good riddens to the FTZs), the feel n road holding performance is simply outstanding!!! Now that the springs has runned/settled in, the ride is not so bumpy but instead has a very firm feel quite similar 2 those continental makes. Partly thanx 2 the softer compound tyres.

Take it hard into corners n to my suprise it had the feeling of practically no body roll at all!!! Jalan Cheras is notorious for road patches, bumps, holes here n there. Of course u feel it but its the way the dampening works...... it flies over bumps (not terbang like Air Asia la!)....... i dunno how 2 describe the experience but it feels great!!! never felt so confident in my car b4..... previously on the OEM suspension, it sucked big time liked a cheap overloaded sampan on rough seas!!! (my frens describing my car...sigh!! :( )

Honestly 1 of the best coilovers i hav experienced in!!! U can buy extremely expensive coilovers but not many sellers/dealers will take the effort to tune up to your liking........ Most of them would say, "these coilovers r like tt la or hav to wait very long wor coz hav to send back to Japan la.....!!!"

Of course money wise, RM2,800 sounds quite a bit but if u r lookin for quality stuff wif after sales, Titan would b a good bet.... I m not promoting them bcoz i bought 1 set....... but bcoz it made a BIG difference for me...... i always believe good products deserved to b mentioned...... of course some might disagree which is everybody's right........... no harm payin them a visit n maybe they might hav the solutions u r lookin for........ ;)
