The hood can close but I suspected the terminals touch the hood. Because my battery flat very quickly. As a solution, I place a rubber mat covering the terminal and my battery lasted longer.

Still a bit more cosmetic to do... upholstery the seats and change MOMO Daytona steering... my brother complaint still seeing too much rubber... will swap in a 16 inch too. hahaha... itchy hands
At one glance the rims looks like 16 inch.
Suggest u check the availability of the tire model u want before getting a 16 inch rim. Not to many choices out there and u might end up with seeing too much rubber again or worse still sees too much rubber and the car stood higher.

I used the UHP Federal RSR 205/50/15. Fantastic tyres!



@vr2turbo according to Federal website it's just a UHP!
Under UHP category, but under sub category is Extreme performance for 595RS-R, 595RS-RR and 595RS-PRO. Then for model 595, 595EVO and 595RPM is under performance series......https://www.federaltire.com/en/products.php?class=UHP

when I bought the car the car came with Hankook tyre and is rubbish at rain. Steer a little bit hard the car start sliding side way.
On dry is ok. Now I was consider to buy toyo tr1 to my jazz and slam my Jazz re003 to my wira.
Why not RE-004, since you know what RE-003 can offer already.....

Wira update

Is longggggggggg time since I update my wira status.

My muffler is broken long time ago. One time my muffler bracket patah and I ask my technician to hlp me weld back. Since then I juz forget about it.
When I saw some guy selling a new muffler (max racing brand) for a cheap price so I went and ask turn out his family won't let him install so he had to sell it cheap. If I am not rong this muffler is around Rm300+on the website.
Inlet 2inch out 3.5 inch.
After some discussion I get it for Rm150
Went to shop and pasang Rm80
The sound is same as the old dunno why hahahahaha,but nahhhh it didn't make any bla bla bla sound while down shifting in low speed is ok to me.

Happy Nee year to all

Another Tyre man introduce me alliance 030ex
A sub brand of yokohama. 195/55/15 cost around Rm195
And is made in Japan. Quite tempting.
I wont call it 'quite tempting' when RE004 is just an additional RM 45 a piece away which is additional RM 180 a set away. The performance difference will be night and day...thats the difference which u have to live with for 3-4years down the road.

Re004 is quite pricey survey a lot of shop
195/55 R15 all around 230 & 250

Since my jazz I only drive on sat & sunday only so get something like Toyo Tr1 is ok ?
Still considering....
The jazz mostly use by my dad now daily commuting only.

Nah, better off with TR1 then. That 030ex pattern look at it also is like entry level only. And at RM195 is not cheap......

That metal hook welded to the exhaust, by right should weld to the end joint, not on the exhaust body. Exhaust body very thin sheet of metal only, that is why rust through already.....
