Longtermer #1, Update 21, March 2010: Ford Telstar 2.0i4 16v Ghia

In this blog entry, I am updating my Ford Telstar i4 Ghia. This is the 21th update.

What's up in the month of March?

As I am typing this, the Telstar covered 889km. Now, 151,955km. Previous month, it's 151,066km.

This month, I changed my Front Shock Absorbers to HITACHI TOKICO Gas type.  Paid RM165 per absorber.  I then drove to nearby tyre shop in Paramount where they charged me RM50+15 for alignment.  Total: RM395 poorer. According to the mechanic, my rear absorbers also KO already. But I have no money to change at moment.

Without further ado, let’s proceed to Logbook…
