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!

Wanna Ask anyone use Continental UC6 before?
Got quote 195/55/15 rm200 per pcs
Saw the spec sheet is like half performance half comfort type. Quite tempting.
Although I also consider toyo tr1
But I feel I am alittle old for these tyre.
Hahahhahahahaha
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

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.
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.

yes, no more sound... i fitted a Ftuned spring... nicer handling.
also, braided hose for all 4 disc brakes.

BTW, how are you? didn't hear from you for quite a while
I am fine Thx. But sadly my wira is wreck. Hit by a car on the back. The car is total lost and I walk out from the accident with just some minor wound only( hand & head)
