LONGTERMER #3, Vol 5: Proton Waja 1.6 4G18P (A)

 LONGTERMER #3, Vol 5: Proton Waja 1.6 4G18 (A)

In this blog entry, I'm updating my ride, Proton Waja 1.6 4G18(A). This is the 5th update.

Firstly, I managed to parked my Waja at "Podium" parking at my Office in Wisma Genting (see pictures below) on 18 October 2011.

Later, on the same day (18 October), I traded in my stock Waja rims for recond rims taken from Persona Hi-line (see picture below) from "WE Automobiles" in Pandan Mewah, Ampang.
(Picture above: The rims I bought.  Before and after reconditioning.)
Above: Before. 

Above and Below: DURING.

Above: After, Below: The Tayar Shop

I paid RM180 for the rims including Alignment and balancing. While at it, I requested for Oil change RM15 for oil filter and RM10 for labour. The Engine oil, Castrol Magnetec Semi Synthetic, I bought from a Shop in Section 20, Sea Park (the one facing Maybank) for RM93 only.

I accidentally broke the "rear right" door handle. Within 24 hours I bought replacement at the Same Spare part shop in Section 20, Sea park for RM25, painted in matching Arctic blue. Paid RM20 extra for installation = RM45 (see pictures below).

Also, like last month, the Fuel Consumption is consistent, hovering between 7.1km/l to 9.06km/l. This Waja seems to prefer EssoMobil over shell and petronas.

Lastly, my sister passed me her Ambi Pur Car but Without cartridge. I bought a refill "Vanilla Bouquet" for RM10.90. (picture below)

Without further ado, let's proceed to logbook:

Mileage as at 11/10/11: 131,656km
Mileage last month: 976km

Mileage today: 132,646km
Mileage this month: 990km

Worst: 7.1km/l (25 cents) 100% city driving (Shell RON95) 20 Sept


1) Petrol: RM212.60 (Average 21.4 cents/km)
2) Parking: RM60
3) Reload touch and go RM10
4) Car Wash: RM6
5) New recond Rims + Alignment + Oil filter + labour = RM160+20+15+10 = RM205.
6) Castrol magnatec engine oil: RM93
7) Bought and install door handles (RM45)
8) Ambi Pur car refill RM10.90

TOTAL: RM611.80.

Before I go, here's some parting shots:
