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.

After driving few month and the conclusion is.....

I think I really want a manual....Hahahahahaha!!!!
May be is because after working half year at my new job everyday I drove a Manual Nissan Frontier at work and I really get used to manual. Is more driver engaging to me and not easy to get distracted by other thing. Hahahahahaha
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.

all in about 1.5k-2k not including speedometer swap for wira 1.5 manual gearbox with clutch cable. the one with clutch pump is a bit more expensive but not gonna cost u more than 2.5k all in.
