Premium brand is priced very similarly to HWL. Personally I'd go for either of these 2 over GAB.
I juz survey 1st. Hahahahahha
Wait and see other user review 1st and decide.
BC V1 & Ftuned also inside my consideration but need top up 1k+.
BC at Johor you can find alot
But
Ftuned is so rare like finding a Ford Mondeo Ecoboost in my area.
Since they are serviceable I will also consider thr location I can send.

All due respect to Ftuned but don't waste your time with something that's not easily accessible to you. Also their aftermarket service has gotten worse over the years. I've gotten the negative end of their response in my old 4k++ setup so I'll never go back to them ever again. Find a brand that you have easy access to (after sales service, servicing, if you need to change spring rates easily can access, etc) and go buy that brand.

The good thing about Premium, Titan, HWL, Ftuned, RDS and all these specialized shocks companies is you can tune the suspension to the way you like it. The bad thing about these companies is the same thing - the tuners will sometimes insist they are right and tune it the way they want it because they claim to have "years of experience on the track and on the road". If you go there INSIST on a test drive on a similar car to determine what you want from the suspension cuz everyones butt-dyno is different. If you can't test drive then don't buy immediately cuz it's not going to be a cheap purchase and it's also going to last you a long time so you'll have to live with whatever you buy good or bad.

I've sat in cars with all these brands except Premium (but I suspect it's similar to Titan) and I've experienced bad as well as good combos for all these brands. The only brand I've never seen "bad" before is Ohlins - On a FD2R, BMW M3, all are magnificent. But their price also magnificent.

My VR with rebuilt original front and new HL (Top perfect now called HWL) was rebuilt-ed 2 years back. Brought them to their factory, and they were able to rebuilt them in a few days. They were 19 years old......lol

I saw ohlins on Jazz before. The price is around rm12k. Not sure which spec.
SADLY Ftuned & Premium didn't have any shop at JB so cannot try.
I am more interested in Premium part of it is more affordable & support Malaysia product lahhhh.Haahahaha
Still survey on the review and then decide go for it or not.
From the information I saw Premium P6 is a fully adjustable Monotube type coilover. And is catridge type so if need to repair juz swap out.

When buying tires, buy the best u can afford or within your budget limit. That will be the best tire for u. Dont opt for cheaper brand or model when u can afford better brand or model.

U r never to old for a bit of adrenaline rush.

Haiz... Ka-ching $$$... Cooling coil leaking :coldsweat:
Could just be a clog or just require internal cleaning - basically it's just maintenance la. Don't worry bro, it shouldn't require you to potong ur left leg to pay for this fix. Haha!

Ok la. TR1 or UC6 is just high performance range, not max or extreme yet. These are everyday tyres, no such thing as too old la bro. Tyres are critical safety items, don't skimp on them. Unless you're talking about AD08R or RE71R tyres, then maybe you're going overkill.

UC6 is just one rung above entry level CC6. If TR1 is about same price might as well get TR1. If can afford better like RE-004 then go for it. Like bro. Izso mentioned, they are critical safety item. Unker using UHP Goodyear Asy 3 leh.....hahaha

My budget is around rm200 per tyre
PS3 & re004 is too expensive
I was intrested in UC6 is because the wet control & wet braking is better then TR1 (correct me if I am rong
Both I had do a comparison UC6 is more like half perfomance half comfort type that suit my need now.

Hi,

Currently im using GAB HA Hi-Lo suspension. The spring rate i'm using right now is front 5k rear 4k.

It seems very hard on humps and bumps. Wonder if any TITAN spring can into my absorber?
i want it to be a bit softer than what i having now.

Thx.
