new kid in Sg Bravo Forum - [b]chinalim...[/b] says Hi! ",

Post  chinalim on Mon Apr 14, 2008 12:26 pm

i'm new to the forum & certainly new to the fiat owners club.

i'm a 1st-time FIAT owner & previously drove a Mit Lancer GLX. extremely glad to own this jazz blue Bravo T-jet that comes with full panaromic sunroof... (my son loves the view mostly ",) so whenever u see a blue SGY....E that's me Cool

ever since getting my hands on this Bravo.... my average speed is 120km/hr on highways & 90km/hr on regular roads. kana booked once for speeding but i'm quite 'heng'.... because of connections with 'high' places ", haha but i still have yet learn my lesson.... driving hard driving strong

i stay in yishun & work in tuas

getting the new FIAT 2007 Bravo T-jet has been a great buy (thanks to Jeslin Teo, TTS Eurocars). reason for this buy:
1. super stunning looks
2. super fast (for this price range)
3. super solid (front survived after kana hit-&-run by a lorry reversing... only scratch paintwork ",)
4. it's manual drive (means wife drive lesser ",)
5. good fc
6. lower road tax (compare to any 1.6cc cars)
7. driver centered (thanks to FIAT design center)
8. mini Maseratti/Auston Martin in disguise
9. received a very nice reg number ", (again thanks to Jeslin)
10. reasonable servicing rates (i think....)
11. too many good pts vs bad ones

so, if you're in the area i'm staying or working in tuas... do contact me for a meal or kopi anytime.

my real name: david lim (china) tiong kwok
which explains why i use 'chinalim'

keep up with me on the roads ",

lol!

as i said... i love to 'loot' (hokkien ar) or floor the pedal when i need to overtake people ",

i generally get 13.8-14.5 when running 100km/hr along KJE to work when on full tank. it drops to 12.8-13.5 on the second day... my average fc is 12.2-12.6 before next top up.

when driving along expressways, i use push & drift method... push to 110-120km/hr then release accelerator & let the momentum/ inertia force to drift. that's how i improve my fc. u see... if you floor the pedal to get the same distance that's wasting petrol.

remember this push & drift method is for leisure driving ", if some f#Q@$%#$ bastard wanna challenge me then it's a different story Razz haha

Bravo can run on 95, it is stated in the manual. There was an article last time on this, end of the day, not much difference (except pay more) between 98 or 95 if your car can run on lower RON.

But if your Bravo is "upgraded" then go for 98.

Hmmm, JB jam depend on timing, so far 11plus am should not be a problem or u can call 68630117 to check on the traffic flow;) Malaysia Vpower sure got difference, if not the price also wont be so so cheap. (top up 50litres only cost me ard SGD45) for this i even apply the Maybank Families and Friends credit card becos got 5% off at all malaysia petrol station Very Happy
