The MITSUBISHI Concept-cX


Tokyo, July 30, 2007 — Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and its European unit Mitsubishi Motors Europe B.V. will unveil The MITSUBISHI Concept-cX* at the 62nd Internationale Automobil Ausstellung (IAA; commonly known as the Frankfurt Motor Show) in September. Held at the Frankfurt Messe Complex, the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show will be open to the public from September 15 through 23, with press and media pre-viewing September 11 through 14.


The MITSUBISHI Concept-cX represents a new-generation compact SUV, realizing an ideal balance between environmental and everyday practical performance. The concept car uses a new high-output, high-efficiency 1.8-liter clean diesel engine, featuring a variable geometry (VG) turbocharger for optimum boost control and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) with diesel particulate filter (DPF) in the exhaust system for compliance with Europe's Euro 5 emission standards. Mitsubishi's new Twin Clutch SST (Sport Shift Transmission) adds superior power transmission efficiency for a powertrain that delivers nimble performance alongside excellent fuel economy and low emissions. Among the number of new environmental technologies applied in the Concept-cX is the extensive use of interior trim materials made from Mitsubishi's own Green Plastic — made from bamboo and other plant-based resins — in a step to stop global warming and slow the depletion of our oil reserves.


MITSUBISHI Concept-cX offers a number of proposals for better utility and road performance. Its high seating position expands the driver's field of view, providing the drivability expected in a SUV; the 4100 mm compact body makes for easy maneuvering around town; and the split tailgate — already well received on other Mitsubishi models — makes for easy loading and unloading of luggage. In the performance department, Concept-cX uses Mitsubishi's electronically controlled 4WD system driven through large 225/45R19 tires to deliver intuitive handling and outstanding stability on all road surfaces.

Toyota Vios at 150km/h


Very poor handling and light body which is the the causes of the shacky body and floating wheel. Without changing any suspension and strut bar, do not attempt to speed ur vios. Because I do think many people can handle it.
Good pickup but losing power at the end, low rpm at high speed a good sign for further room of more speed, but it take too long before the speed can go up further. Basically after 120km/h, Vios totally lost the end power...
Vios a only 100 meter runner.

Honda Civic 2008 or 2009?




Honda Civic concept cars has been shown in the shows lately in Japan. Sooner it will become the next generation of the Honda Civic estimated in next 2 years time, after the current Honda Civic which a bit 5354... haha
5354 means non sporty look and non family car looks, but looks more like a old fat man crawling on the road. Hope the new Civic can replace this 5354 soon.

Review of Mitsubishi Lancer GLX 1.6 at 200km/h



Stock Mitsubishi Lancer GLX 1.6 Litre running at 200km/h picture sharing to all.

Machine is noisy but the sound is still solid, unlike toyota vios which the sound like the engine wanna to jump out. Toyota Vios become unstable at high speed because of light body weight. See what had happened to the poor guy running Toyota Vios at 160km/h.

Lancer GLX stable and still managable to control at that speed. Of coz the steering will become shaky but not to forget that the car is still in stock condition.

Remember ! Dont speed. Speeding Kills.

Portable DVD at car

Portable DVD
I noticed that the DVD player selling in Car ICE Audio shop is much expensive as compared to the one selling at Sim Lim Square or Best Denki.

A normal 7" TFT portable DVD if you buy at ICE shop, it may cost you S$400 above, with installation. Autobac is selling the NextBase 7" at $399.00.However, if you purchase the DVD at Sim Lim, it will cost you only $150 and above.

A decent Philips portable DVD player which come with dual screen only selling at $399.00 at Best Denki, and a 8.5" Shinco only selling at $215.00.

No doubts may be the brand carry the price and nice installation work done by the shop, but to me, a double of the price is way too expensive.
