Nice. Mine is a duck tail style.
During lockdown time I juz clean both of my car engine bay since the jazz for my dad & mom shopping & go out makan car is still clean and neat.

But the wira.... Yes,there is a lot of dirt,sand and those oil stain that had in the car for don't know how many year. Took me some time to clean. And also clean the throttle body with throttle cleaner.
The accelerate feel for smooth after the cleaning.
Yours more the normal spoiler, the other like EVO type.....:driver:

remove all seats and do thorough vacuum to get all dust esp under the front seats and between the seat and center console.
man... overkill much? hahaha.. I suppose you jack up your car, remove tyres to clean arches?

haha... almost bought the seat cover. But it couldn't come on time. Else I will remove all and do what you suggested.
If u can afford it go for proper re-wrap of the seats. Seat covers are just there to cover the original seats. My BLM is using such covers for RM280. Its black with red stiching. Looks good enough for me compared to the dust gathering original seat material. Once the rubber strip holding the covers loosen up, the cover will looks ugly. If u daily your car and always carry passenger this will comes quicker.

I use the black moon car seat cover. It does not cover fully but it does not heat up hot under the sun

I need to have an impact gun otherwise I wouldn't do it. Anything that takes more than 15 minutes to do for one wheel means I won't do it.

Not daily car. A dinosaur exhibit only. From the day bought the car... it only occupy 2 front seats. Rear seat still looks like new. Firm cushion. Was thinking to wrap the seat... an accessories in Puchong is asking for RM480 for all the seats. Ok price?

Dear forumers and sifus here,

Just want to ask on this matter. I'm hoping for soem good advice and opinions especially from those who have done cross-drilled/slotted rotor in a machine/engineering shop. This happens to be the trend as it is cheap and looks cool.

1. Does it have any benefit in daily drive/track?
2. Does it have any bad effects such as reliability issues?
