Nope... honestly... the surface is quite slipper.... and I feel it's going to be more slippery when wet...

But IMHO, it's good to have to "keep" the water / moisture in.... and not "kenna" the carpet which prob cannot be replaced...

Anyway... damage...

Flip key is from a GB here.
32 bucks
Duplicate the key...
20 bucks
Cover...
15 bucks.

Total... almost 70 bucks...

worth it??

Honestly...

If given another choice, I may not have chose to do it because of the price.
Very Happy

But that's only IMHO.

However, some of the rest of the bros here managed to save some money duplicating the key.
e.g.
some bros spent 3 bucks, some... like me... 20 bucks.

When I went to duplicate...

Quoted 20... too lazy to look for another shop... 20... ok la...

Went to MCD on a weekday.... saw the pouch... 15... welll... it's not too bad... buy...

When I sat down to do the math...

Almost 70....

I think probably you get everything seperately and so it doesnt look too expensive initially. Just like 'zhng-ing' the car. Get abit here and there.........and in no time, it might have added up to 10s or tousands.

Anyway, i am also thinking of doing just the flip key because my leather pouch is spoilt. Sigh. Poor quality i guess. Now, the key keeps poking onto my thighs once in a while and it really hurts.

Razz
as for the pouch its more like an accessory lor.. but looks good lah.. and serve like a protection to ur flippy too

Wow.. you are real pro. Actually, I'm only looking for those light and foldable ones that can load into the boot Any idea where to get them? I found a few in Carrefour and Giant but they are still cumbersome after folding and very heavy too. I've ever seen on tv news of a man carrying a foldable bike and he hopped into the MRT.

A bro juz asked me why did I consider or chose this rack...

Here's my answer.

rforte wrote:bro,
i might just get the one like yours.

cheap and prevent the possibilities/risk of driving into mscp without removing.

any reason why you get this bike "saris" brand"? and which shop has got a lot of varieties to review? you mind?

1. It has a great resale value.
*See some of the bike forums and see what I mean.

2. It's adjustable to fit most cars... even hatch backs...
*Even though of recent, most have designed the same but this was one of the first.

3. It folds to a small package.

4. Lighter than most...
*The reliable brands that is...

5. Life time warranty.
Once, the hook had some problem and that part was replaced... no problem.

6. If I am not wrong... it's made in USA.

7. I dropped it once from a 1.5m height... it's still ok.
*Some slight scratches though.

8. It looks cool.

Smile

Hope this helps.

1. Door pockets...

2. Window sill....
Damn nice if you ask me... very subtle, very classy look.

3. Fog lamp garnish...
A little bling for my liking.... does not shout "ME"... but not too bad still.

Now... both sides...

IMHO, I feel that this fog lamps may not look too hot for those who are going for the "sporty" look....

Mine is 8l / 100km.

4 adults, 2 kids. trunk full (Aprox 30-40kg)...

4
adults and two kids???/ u better drive a MPV... why squeeze so many for
the long drive... better take the lux bus.. more comfy..

Not that long la...

100km+ drive 2 hrs including the causeway @ 2nd link?

For me no point getting an MPV cos most of the time, it's only 2 adults and 2 kids...

The 2 other adults were my parents.

2 kids as in 1 - 7 year old who sat in the back middle seat, 1 - 3 year old who sat on an adult's lap.

it
was a little uncomfortable for the lap of the person who my 3 year old
was sitting on... but other than that... my folks were pretty comfy on
that ride.

1 - car was smooth @ 130km/h average.
2 - air cond was cold enough

however... the pick up was horrendous... but understandable considering the total weight on the car.
*Aprox 350kgs total in the car...

Although it's a small town... it's starting to become quite developed...

But never the less... still have to be careful as it's supposed to be one of the more "developed" towns...
*With development.... comes the crime too...

Anyway... here's more info about the place.

http://www.travbuddy.com/travel-blogs/33239/Weekend-Kluang-Johore-Malaysia-1

Try the Dim Sum in the link... cheap and good.

This town is also rewound for their fragrant Hinanese Coffee.
The rail cafe is quite near the Dim Sum place.
But IMHO, the coffee in the Dim Sum place is not too bad as well...

i am a common visitor to kluang. you might want to try climbing the gunung tampak mountain. it has just been promoted to a city from a town.

a word of caution, when you are in kluang's city centre, the people there drive like lunatics, especially the crazy roundabouts. just be careful.
