apparently there's a crack on the chrome on the grill..SS saying they have in stock for $1191 which compares well to prices I seeing online.


If you up North you could check Murchison John, Evans t. St. Augustine (body repair shop opposite the Massy Stores/RBC ) Tel #786-1124.
Good luck.

Happy New year guys.
Got into an accident in October and decided to take the time and do some mods (some bought and some put down)

- I upgraded from the oem halogen headlights to oem HID lights (error canceller was required)
- Replaced the entire front bumper with an aftermarket from kdmholic.com
- Removed the OE fog lights and added on DRL 10 led strips
- Added on side and rear skirts
- Installed a carbon fiber cold air intake
- Installed an Ultra Racing front upper strut bar (rear lower sway bar coming soon)
- Installed BC Racing (BR Series) Coilovers
- Got some white Enkei WRC Tarmac 17" wheels
- Repainted the entire car (black) and calipers (red) and wheels (white)

Just time now to get the coilovers to settle in and adjust to suit.

Besides the point. You said to each their own. No one cares but you. The owner likes his car. The car looks good. The work was done well. As a racedriverpro you should really have more sensible methods of guessing hp though

smooth running all? did 40,000 service at SS came in at $1700. Not bad for two years. Anyone did anything major at SS or elsewhere that ups this service cost as mileage increases?

Hey man. Yeah SSSL prices generally increase as mileage increases. I dunno why. But I ensured they only did oil and all filters. The rest I handled on my own especially brake pads which I fine is a rip off.

My warranty ended in January. So I do the minor stuff on my own now.

Installed extractors on Sunday and got rid of the CAT which is made into the exhaust manifold. Car pulls a lot better.

Hello everyone, I recently bought a used 2015 kia cerato and I must say I'm very happy with my purchase. Does anyone knows the recommended replacement spark plug specification for the gamma 1.6 mpi engine?

Warranty just ended but study when I park my car on a slope with the front facing downhill, and rain falls, water comes into the car from under the right back seat and settles in the front driver side.

I heard the 5000kms service for those vehicles is around $800. What they changing so to justify that? That amount of mileage only requires oil, oil filter and air filter change! That should be $600 max inclusive of labor.
