haha.. yeah... well, after some time, it will become like the below la... but it will be much easier to wash than the stock caliper due to the smooth surface of the new caliper compared to stock's surface.

I dunno what paint the paint shop uses but I am using normal industrial can paint. No problem with the color and heat. I do not hard brake that much, so normal paint will work.

Reminds me of my AE111 last time, I also used the same paint and was okay till the day I sold my car. Painted it gold last time.

For now, all I wanted to do is to get my engine mounting replaced. With labour, it will cost around RM1700. That is the next to-do thing in June or maybe July.

In terms of performance modifications, I am quite satisfied for now. All I can think of is ICE upgrade.

When I changed my AE111 engine mounting back in 2002, it was already costing me ard 800 plus wif labor. So I guess the price is decent now, 10 years later.

I retuned my ICE last weekend, it seems acceptable to me now, temporarily. Heeeeheee. I also wanted to chg the rim to lesser spokes so I can clean the caliper easier. Now, just too difficult.

Bro honestly. its not difficult to maintain a turbo car. It is more expensive during servicing only. Intervals are about the same as NA cars.

You are right in a sense. Because engine oil will somehow gets into the intercooler piping. But if the engine is healthy, it'll not be too bad. smile.gif I change oil every 5K, using Mobil 1. 4.4L.
