Get Bosch C3 or C7, i have 4 cars at home, forklift, all used it, damn worth it for RM220. If hard to start hopefully its just not enough electrical power la

Have you tried different ways of starting the car? Meaning like my VR, I start without stepping on the accelerator, but once it ignites, then I dab the accelerator. Like my Hyundai i step slightly on the accelerator, then start.....

once announced EMCO... i charged my power bank battery jumper... ever ready in the car... LoL...
eh.. same here. I don't leave it in the car though, very scared it'll explode from the heat.

I've had this problem before - turned out it was just bad battery connectors and dirty terminals. After I cleaned out the battery terminals and replaced the connectors with new ones all problems solved.

couple of things to check, see if the terminals are loose enough to move without any tools - if yes, then tighten them. Check to see if the contact is corroded or just worn flat or black or something weird looking.

If not remove the connector, use some sand paper to clean the contact points on the connector and the battery itself. Make sure there's no big black patches (oxidation) or weird coloured parts or something.

Thi isn't my picture but mine was very similar to this. Also the contact points inside the connector itself was browning copper coloured. o I just changed the whole thing.

let's see using "Attach files" work or not
I think you need to verify your ZTH account or something to make everything work.

Woo... then it might be just a contact problem in your spark plug cables itself. Got spare cables lying around? Swap them out la. Or find a friend and swap them with him/her for a while to see if the problem transfers

My hyundai had that problem too. Got new cables fitted, was driving fine for a few months then sometimes it gives a little jerk. Next service told mechanic, he check everything seems ok. Then he decided to pull out all the plug cables again and found the main one have sunken in therefore the contact was not that good, after he adjusted everything now ok......

Premium is a new brand that started when the head worker and a few others left Titan and started their own brand based on their experience.

Oh.... Saw their page always doing air sus & coilover for luxury car & supercar. Suddenly came up a lineup for normal car quite surprise. Fully adjustable & serviceable coilover for Rm1.8k. I do consider to change my absorbers to coilover or gab sa + sport spring

Want stiff the ride abit. Always felt on corner & high speed very soft & floaty.

Premium brand is priced very similarly to HWL. Personally I'd go for either of these 2 over GAB.

I juz survey 1st. Hahahahahha
Wait and see other user review 1st and decide.
BC V1 & Ftuned also inside my consideration but need top up 1k+.
BC at Johor you can find alot
But
Ftuned is so rare like finding a Ford Mondeo Ecoboost in my area.
Since they are serviceable I will also consider thr location I can send.

All due respect to Ftuned but don't waste your time with something that's not easily accessible to you. Also their aftermarket service has gotten worse over the years. I've gotten the negative end of their response in my old 4k++ setup so I'll never go back to them ever again. Find a brand that you have easy access to (after sales service, servicing, if you need to change spring rates easily can access, etc) and go buy that brand.

The good thing about Premium, Titan, HWL, Ftuned, RDS and all these specialized shocks companies is you can tune the suspension to the way you like it. The bad thing about these companies is the same thing - the tuners will sometimes insist they are right and tune it the way they want it because they claim to have "years of experience on the track and on the road". If you go there INSIST on a test drive on a similar car to determine what you want from the suspension cuz everyones butt-dyno is different. If you can't test drive then don't buy immediately cuz it's not going to be a cheap purchase and it's also going to last you a long time so you'll have to live with whatever you buy good or bad.

I've sat in cars with all these brands except Premium (but I suspect it's similar to Titan) and I've experienced bad as well as good combos for all these brands. The only brand I've never seen "bad" before is Ohlins - On a FD2R, BMW M3, all are magnificent. But their price also magnificent.

I saw ohlins on Jazz before. The price is around rm12k. Not sure which spec.
SADLY Ftuned & Premium didn't have any shop at JB so cannot try.
I am more interested in Premium part of it is more affordable & support Malaysia product lahhhh.Haahahaha
Still survey on the review and then decide go for it or not.
From the information I saw Premium P6 is a fully adjustable Monotube type coilover. And is catridge type so if need to repair juz swap out.

When buying tires, buy the best u can afford or within your budget limit. That will be the best tire for u. Dont opt for cheaper brand or model when u can afford better brand or model.

U r never to old for a bit of adrenaline rush.

Haiz... Ka-ching $$$... Cooling coil leaking :coldsweat:
Could just be a clog or just require internal cleaning - basically it's just maintenance la. Don't worry bro, it shouldn't require you to potong ur left leg to pay for this fix. Haha!

Ok la. TR1 or UC6 is just high performance range, not max or extreme yet. These are everyday tyres, no such thing as too old la bro. Tyres are critical safety items, don't skimp on them. Unless you're talking about AD08R or RE71R tyres, then maybe you're going overkill.

UC6 is just one rung above entry level CC6. If TR1 is about same price might as well get TR1. If can afford better like RE-004 then go for it. Like bro. Izso mentioned, they are critical safety item. Unker using UHP Goodyear Asy 3 leh.....hahaha

My budget is around rm200 per tyre
PS3 & re004 is too expensive
I was intrested in UC6 is because the wet control & wet braking is better then TR1 (correct me if I am rong
Both I had do a comparison UC6 is more like half perfomance half comfort type that suit my need now.
