    Giving for hire - Legal agreement

    As the owner of the vehicle, you must also take precautions to ensure the driver does not commit any offences using the vehicle. You can request the driver to submit a police report or the driver could give you a written letter that he was not involved in any crimes previously. There are some specific laws (like section 40 of the Forests Ordinance) which result in automatic confiscation of the vehicle. Using the vehicle to transport drugs, firearms, explosives or to commit offences under the Prevention of Terrorism Act are likely to result in the seizure of the vehicle. The owner will then have to go to Court and satisfy the Judge that he took all reasonable precautions to prevent the commission of a crime. If the owner fails, the vehicle will be confiscated to the State. The owner will end up without a car and under obligation to pay the balance lease. Sorry to present a bleak picture but this is how things happen in Court. It would be better if you consult a lawyer to decide what precautions you need to take that will, if brought to Court, to prevent the commission of a crime. A legal agreement drawn by a lawyer between the owner and the driver will enhance your credibility when investigated by the authorities.

    Thanks. 1/2 socket set would be more useful it seems. Yeah, digital torque wrench like https://www.amazon.ca/ACDelco-ARM602-4-Measurement-Adapter-4-147-6-Feet/dp/B004VYURT0/ref=sr_1_1?crid=17XI02TO6A5MU&keywords=digital+torque+adapter&qid=1558321468&s=gateway&sprefix=digital+torque+%2Caps%2C193&sr=8-1 would be a good pick. I am not sure it is available in Amazon Asia

    Honda Insight 2019 vs Toyota Premio 2019

    There were 3 grades for 1.8L version of the Allion; A18,A18 G package,A18 S package.1.5L; A15, A15 G package. Easiest way to identify them is the meter cluster. G package has the optitron meter cluster(illumination dashboard what they call here😅) and the base version has the ordinary meter cluster(just like the Axio 141 X grade’s meter but with tachometer and multi information display at the middle).According to the catalogue the A18 has the 9 leds. I have driven the A15 G pack but haven’t inspected the 3rd break lamp. Mine has 9 leds being a 1.5L, but from 2013.

    1. SAE or metric depending on your vehicle. Isn't it? 1/2 would be the best in my opinion. 2. Doesn't it depend on the torque range you need? There are digital torque meters with a range from 8-500Nm. Looks versatile. I don't have one to test the accuracy. Also, is there any place that hires torque wrench? I'm planning to invest on one. A set of quality torque wrench costs a fortune.

    Allions which have 9 LEDs in their 3rd brake lamp are A18 which come with 1.8L engines. Rare to find in SL because of people's fobia of bigger engines. Also I have not come across any 1.8L premios of 260 era either. Axio Luxel (144) which has a 1.8L engine also has 9 LEDs in its 3rd brake lamp.

    Honda Insight 2019 vs Toyota Premio 2019

    From what I’ve seen, the vents for rear are available in the highest grade of the 1.5L Premio/Allion 2013 and above models for sure. Premio’s F-EX package(what they call g superior in SL) and Allion G Plus(It’s properly called atleast😅) are equipped. I checked two 2010-2012 F-L package cars(which is a grade below F-EX) and they didn’t have those. But both of them were rebadged as G Superior. Maybe the real F-EX packages might have those vents. I think your Allion is a middle tier edition(I can’t remember the names of the grades of 2007-2009 Allions). Best thing is to check whether your 3rd brake light(mounted on the rear parcel shelf) has 9 led lamps.Top tier versions had 9 leds instead of four.Also the leather stitched steering wheel is another fact for the top spec version. If yours not a one, the we can guess that the top version might have the option.Anyway it’s not much of a great deal, but does make it nicer for the rear passengers.

    Yes. It dont have any relay. Your relay suggestion is good and seems practical. Deeply thinking about it. About flexi tubing : The hardware guys call them as flexible hose and I already planned to use those. I will update here once done. Regulator : Yep, thinking to attach some dummy wires to it. Now it have only 1 and seems isolated.

    Suzuki Hustler/wagon r Vs Demio

    Hands down Demio is a much better choice in every possible way. My first car was a 2009 Demio and I had sheer amount of fun driving that. Sad to let her go☹️..

    It doesn't have a headlight relay right? And the rated power for headlights is 35/50W? Maybe the sealed beams are of a higher power. Might be the reason for blown fuse. I suggest you add a relay. Even the 35/50 would be brighter with the relay due to the decreased voltage drop. You can even upgrade to brighter lights later. When you repair the wire harness route the wires through flexi tubing. Electrical wiring shops have something called flexi / flexi tubing. A corrugated flexible PVC tube. Get some black color heavy-duty ones and run the wires through it. Added protection from rodents and elements. Looks neat too. Especially useful for exposed wires in the engine bay. I just finished repairing all the wires in my project car. Assembled everything as it would be on the car with all the switches, lights and motors, and made sure all worked. Used the flexi also. Unfortunately I don't have photos of the whole setup on my phone. Alternator is a worthy upgrade. Clean the gunk off the voltage regulator and attach some wires to keep the looks! Cheers Varotone

    I own a Hustler The demio is better than the hustler in every way other than fuel economy. Reliability maybe equal

    BMW e90 vs Audi A4 B8

    diesel: You would be looking at common rail engines in case of BMW. Audi introduces common rail only after 2008 models. Until then they had the pump injectors driven by cam shaft. Not many mechanics know how to work on these, and ask where is the diesel pump(which doesn't exist) both diesel and petrol:The afore mentioned BMW engine problems(timing chain tensioner issue and turbo vanes breaking and going to the intake) did not affect all engines and would have come up already and been fixed now if the car was affected . Second hand market is also better. But the rubber hoses(coolant, air) in the bmw engine would be developing cracks at this age. Audi is a VW inside, with cosmetic and other mods to make it more luxurious looking and feeling.
  20. Guys... I am thinking of collaborative effort to assemble a list of DIY tools for day to day vehicle maintenance.....Many thanks for your contribution..... 1. 1/2 in socket set -and ratchet Concerns: SAE or Metric? or both, what is the range of socket sizes, whether 3/8 socket set and the ratchet will be more useful? 2. Torque wrench (depending on the choice of 1) 3. Vehicle stands and a Jack 4. Breaker bar list to be completed....

    Most wires released from the clips, rolled and kept under the dashboard. But your suggestion seems better. Unfortunately tinkering work finished before your suggestion . Also the previous owner said head lamp fuse burning time to time. So willing to check complete wire harness by removing all insulation tapes and check each wire for damage in the rewiring process. Voltage regulator : A alternator (3 wire) fixed already and the dynamo removed. The alternator should have a built in regulator which I dont need to worry about charging. But willing to keep the regulator as it is to have vintage look. Some history : My father had a Austin lorry (a one like below) which had a dynamo. So I know the headache of charging. That is the lorry my father taught me driving. No serve brake, no power steering and the starter motor not functioning well because of that poor dynamo. Still remember that nice time period.🤠
  22. Can you help me to compare Suzuki Hustler vs Demio. 01. Acceleration I think demo is better. But is there so much noticeable difference when overtaking? 03. Fuel Consumption 04. Reliability 05. Comfort I read a lot about the demo in Autolanka. But there is less information about a hustler. I like to know from someone who has experience with both cars. Thank for your time.

    Honda Insight 2019 vs Toyota Premio 2019

    To be perfectly honest this is a rather new car so no one really knows too much about it : having said that there was a bit of uncertainty when the new civic came out as well in 2017 - 2 years later it's a relatively popular car. All depends on your requirement and the type of person you are, what stage of life you're in etc. Last year I was out looking for a car and one of my relatives strongly recommended buying a Premio/Allion (used ~2013) I actually looked for a few just to see what the big deal was about - and it was an OK practical car but it jusn't wasn't my type of car maybe if i was 10 years older and hit my 40's with Kids and stuff I would have gone for it but I didn't . So the best thing is for you to figure out your priorities. If you want a reliable car that will get you A-B with minimal fuss then you might consider the Premio - if you are more of an enthusiast, a bit of a car guy and the whole process of driving a car powered by the latest technology excites you then the insight. Actually that will be a waste of permit - cos the 1.0 T engine has one of the lowest Taxes - the permit allows a maximum of 3.6 Mil tax free but the tax for a turbocharged 1 Litre engine is around 1.8 M so that's a loss for him
