    Journey With The Hiace

    A detailed write up! I have a few questions, What model is the 4wd one? 206? Is the 4wd version available with the petrol engine? what is your model called the Hiace 206 4wd? or a different name?
  6. Hi all, I'm looking to buy an Audi A3 so in order to do so I have to sell my 2000 VW Bora. I'll list out the details below. 00' VW Bora - Mileage - 198,000km Drivetrain - 2 Litre + Manual 5 speed. Condition - Cosmetically ok (being a 19 year old car it has some scratches and dents here and there, nothing major), Mechanically great. Bought the car for 1.6 million and spent around 370k on repairs because I was planning on keeping it for a while however being a manual and me driving it mostly in traffic is not great hence the decision to get a newer car. Mechanically there is nothing wrong, as I got the car I made sure everything was sorted out before driving it. I even have a spare engine (With 40k) ready to be swapped in. What is the current market for this car? I know it's going to be a bit difficult to sell. What can I do to make selling it easier?

    Looking for a used BMW 730Li / 730 - F02

    There is one (KT numbered) at 160 cars. STAY AWAY from it. I know for a fact that the car has been abused. Also avoid the active hybrid models, they are a pain.

    Insurance

    I have a 2000 VW Bora so it's almost 20 years old. On average the car covers 54,000km per year and It's fully insured. Even though you don't use the car much I would get complete coverage just for peace of mind.

    Toyota Allion 260 Unusual Slow Down

    I had a 2012 260 allion and it behaved the same way. It's because of the CVT design. Quite normal.

    Any Motorcycle Fans Here?

    Hey! I have a Honda CB400 Spec 3, I can answer some of your questions. 1. The XR is air cooled so since you'll be mostly in traffic I would change the oil every 2500km - 3000km or 6 months. Stay away from caltex. Mobil is much better. I use Motul however it can be expensive. 2. There should be an oil filter however I do not know so best to google your bike model and find out. 3. What I do for my chain is, Clean the chain and sprockets well with kerosene, dry it off, Then lubricate with chain lubricant or used engine oil then wipe off the excess. 4. Again you better google that information. 5. The stock compression ratio is 9.0:1 so 92 octane is fine. 6. DOT 4 but check with google again. 7. There should be a sticker on the swing arm with the tire pressure and chain slack. 8. Make sure your brake pads are good. Check your throttle play and cable lubrication. I usually ride my CB every 6 months or so if you're going to store it for a while make sure to keep the battery charged and spray some fogging oil into the engine cylinders to make sure no rust comes about. 9. I use Motul engine oil for the CB however your XR's requirements may be different. I buy most parts from either dilan motors or ebay. Hornet house also has some parts but mostly for hornets.

    Toyota Aqua Radiator fan not working

    Firstly I don't think your radiator fan could fail at 50,000km (I could be wrong). Check if the fuses are blown. If it's not the fuse, it's probably a sensor

    Toyota Vios

    Yup, make sure to change the oil correctly or the engine will sludge up quickly!
