LONGTERMER #1: Update 26, August 2010: Ford Telstar 2.0i4 Ghia

LONGTERMER #1: Update 26, August 2010: Ford Telstar 2.0i4 Ghia Auto

In this blog entry, I'm updating my ride.  The Ford Telstar 2.0i4 Ghia Auto.  This is the 26th Update.  What happened in the month of August? 

Early August, I drove my car to a FRIENDLY Accessories shop in Kg Melayu Subang, S.K. Auto Accessories Air-conditioning and Cushion.  Initially, I ordered UR Racing Front lower 4-point Anti-roll bar from them worth RM250 (paid RM40 deposit).  The, next day, the goods arrived but it WON'T FIT my car.  It's designed for Late 80s Telstar NOT for V6 body.  I then decided to Trade for HELLA Foglight bulbs (RM40). 

I also bought a Fire extinguisher (RM39), A Cupholder (RM8) and fixed my Central Locking gun (can auto lock but cannot auto un-lock).  Paid RM25 for it.

Previously, my boot's in a MESS, Super disorganised.  Thanks to Bonuslink, I redeemed a "BOOT ORGANISER".  Viola, my boot's Organised now (see picture).

On 12 August, I renewed my Road tax and Insurance.  While I'm in the Jaya One, post office renewing my roadtax, the Traffic Police came and issued me 2 summons.  1 for expired Roadtax and another for parking at yellow line. 

Also, Check this out (picture below).  What a coincidence, taken in TESCO Mutiara Damansara.

Over the last 2 weeks, I can hear the KROCK KROCK KROCK....  (Non stop) sound from the back of my car.  At first I taught it's the rear absorbers.  But it gets LOUDER AND LOUDER every day. This morning (30/8/2010), I send my car to the mechanic and upon inspection, my rear disk brake pad gone.  Metal grinding against metal, hence the Noise.  I ended up RM149.00 Poorer (the mechanic also topped up my Power Steering fluid). 

Without further ado, let's proceed to logbook:

Mileage last month: 155,906km

Mileage now: 156,897km
Mileage used in August 2010: 991km
