When buying car, do you guess think long term i.e. drive the car till scrap or at least close to it, or drive for a few years, change new car, lose a little money.

There are no rational terms in sg. Just buy!

Barakian With the current prices of cars and scrap policies, it makes it highly undesirable for motorists, who like to change cars often, to buy new cars.

Let's assume Motorists ABC likes to change his c...

I think it's set to bounce.

Check out this local company supplying bodykits :

12 Jan 2005
Senna Sounds really good, I wonder are those replica or the real mccoy.
13 Jan 2005
initialD Replicas i think...

But they don't have every kit available in the market... have to email them to check.

viper10011 hi

any other places for lancer bodykits?anyone went mcwell ventures?
7 Jan 2006
discoburg I will suggest getting the real stuffs and not replicas. Yea you are paing more but better quality stuffs you are getting. Replica bodykit' surfaces tend to be wavy after awhile.
7 Jan 2006
viper10011 anyone done at project mayhem b4?

saw on their web..wld anyone know if price includes installation n spray?

thks
13 Jan 2006
