OK guys, updated some pics on my cardomains site. You can check out the Mugen rocker cover, oil filler cap, the bling-bling Mugen shift knob, and the 370mm (out of production) steering wheel. http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/709273/3
FYI car parts get taxed 25~30%, and sales tax = 10%. I ordered the very last 370mm wheel from AAI in Taiwan (Mugen retailer), as even Japan was out of stock. The rest was obtained locally from Amoil and SS Racing.
This weekend, the Cosplus vehicle security gets upgraded to Cobra Thatcham-1 security.
* Battery backup siren (battery contained in siren casing)
* Ignition and Fuel cutoff Immobiliser
* Hyperfrequency interior movement sensor (volumetric protection)
* Perimetric detection - hood, doors, trunk
* Extras - tilt sensor (solid state)
I placed the 'Dont Shift Miss!!' plate on the centre console but haven't stuck it on yet.
As for suspension systems, I seriously feel the aftermarket stuff is not suitable for daily driving on Malaysian roads. They don't absorb bumps properly, and shake your entire car to pieces. You're giving all the bolted on parts - suspension, engine, transmission, dashboard a 'severe' vibration test every day!
One of the Japan GT engineers told me to simply utilise the SiR suspension, and a Honda parts guy who built his own fresh B18C from spare parts also recommended factory shocks (manufactured by Showa). Guess what? The factory spring/damper is the best combination I've driven ever, in cars I've owned.
- Ground clearance
- Firmness (not soggy)
Beats Eibach/KYB gas combo on my brother's TX3 BP Turbo, and that car has THICK anti roll bars front and back. The EF doesn't even have a rear anti roll bar!!
