NBTD.

Boredem is killing me and I'm stuck at work.

Hence this pointless post in "General talk".

What can one do when he has nothing to do and is stuck at work?

I wonder if the 7-speed DCT really is that much better than the current 6 speed

Older slushbox had a lower torque tolerance. Hence the engine had to tuned down to 285Nm to protect it. Wiith the DCT, they can now increase by another 15Nm. Bear in mind this DCT not tuned for performance or fast shifting. There's a discernible pause when shifting. Can expect better highway cruising.

I would say yes because it’s WET. And reviews seems to indicate its better at creeping (programming) relative to shitboxes dry DSG 7 and it can do it better because it’s bathe in oil.

Shifting speed is definitely faster than the conventional auto prior, because that old box wasn’t setting records anyway. The mazda 6 speed is easily superior.

i don’t think I’ll get a new car anytime soon.

Reason is we are at a transition point to BEVs and autonomous self driving cars. Of course BEVs are charger network dependent, and PHEV would make more practical sense.

For the purpose of commuting to work I really enjoy the barge. It’s quiet when I have a charge, which I do most of the time. The power is there when I need it. Going back to pure ICE for commuting is just a step backwards, and the barge isn’t that bad a drive. RWD with extra weight on the rear where I need it.

Ideally I think my future would be a BEV or PHEV SUV, and then the toy I got my heart set on a Lotus Elise or Exige.

Reasons:
1. No power steering
2. Toyota engine
3. Mechanically simple
4. Timeless because it’s like wine. It’s already “expired” but not really.

no itch for a new car at all. I can’t even master the barge and use half of its potential.

Second hand barges with 2 year warranty left are damn good bargains due to the battery fear. Unlike Mercedes the batteries are modular. For the money there’s no better car for the drive or power delivered.

Haha they enjoy seeing other people buy cars.

Had charging issue, one of the electrical board, change under warranty and no more issues. Auxiliary battery failure is common. Other issues not really, see luck. It's not a Volkswagen or Peugeot, problems not guaranteed.

Aux battery is something that can change outside.
So far, in the group only heard of 1 guy exchange the PHEV battery.

Why is so many people treating this restricted movement order as Raya Coronavirus.

All balik kampung. What the duck wei. You’re not cuti, office and place of business closed but you’re still under employment. Company still pay salary, what the duck you think you can balik kampung.

What i've been up to these ROM period;
1.still working. Twice went to office once late at night to do some precaution step to cater should approval is obtained for production to run.

2.Install a divider curtain at home. This does not sound big to some but to be this is huge as the curtain and rail is bought about 1 year ago.

3.DIY clean my car aircond condenser coil. Easy to do on the waja, just remove the grill. Result is so-so.
