    Matipid na yan BR-V mo, no need to worry. Italian tuneup wala yang magagawa.

  • Query lang sa LED headlamps, anong locally available brand ba ang may mataas na CRI? Been using Novsight, 6000K color, kaya lang not satisfied sa night driving, medyo washed out yung kulay at mahirap makadistinguish ng shapes pag malayo. Tried to go back sa halogens, though mahina ang liwanag, pero distinguisable ang objects talaga during pitch-black countryside driving.

    anong specific model ng novsight mo? heavy/tinted ba windshield mo?


  • Ito gamit ko sa honda mobilio ko and so far okay naman. Big improvement from stock halogens. Ako na lang din nagkabit. May free pang T10 bulbs yung pinagbilhan ko. GInamit ko pamalit sa park lights.
  • @statix,

    35% VLT windshield tint ko, using F06. Maliwanag naman siya, kaya lang, pag around 150m siguro, medyo mahirap na madistinguish yung objects since they tend to look like whitish/greyish washed-out outlines. I'm not sure if its the color temperature, pero parang wala din namang available na 3600-3900K na LED na similar ang temperature sa halogen. Meron si PIAA na 4000K pero can't find reliable data din about it's CRI.

    @xMaJox,

    I did a bit of googling sa model na yan and some sites say na >70 CRI siya, though not sure kung reliable yung information, but if its true, then it may be suffering the same case with my Novsights.

    Tatlo lang kami papi. Weight wise, dalawang tao lang nga kasi ako, wife at baby ko na 1.5 years old. Tapos kargado lang namin na extra bigat yung stroller at car seat.

    @Uninvited
    Thanks boss, nakaka-revise narin ng expectations. di pa naman final din yung 11km/L kasi di pa ulet ako nagpapa full tank. Hinahantay ko pa yung next roll back.hehe. kaso baka umakyat nang umakyat eh. Bahala na. Buti talaga, naka fleet card yung office car ni misis.

    I am driving a Mobilio which has the same engine as BRV, usual FC is 13KM/L for mixed city-highway use for the past 12 pandemic months. Nag Baguio kami last April, 14KM/L paakyat and ikot sa Baguio, 16KM/L pababa to Manila.

    @statix,

Maliwanag naman siya, kaya lang, pag around 150m siguro, medyo mahirap na madistinguish yung objects since they tend to look like whitish/greyish washed-out outlines.

    expected ko kasi N37 ang gamit mo. ok naman ang reviews kasi ni N37.
    anyway, sa color temp nga yan paps. big factor din ang wind shield tint. 6500K is white/daylight kasi kaya yung mga dark colors like asphalt mag mukhang washed out talaga.
    4000K ok na yan which is somewhat closer to all weather halogen bulbs na. meron 4300K and 5000K si KS pero sobrang OA naman sa presyo. magkano ba yun PIAA @ 4000K?

    eto gamit ko ngayon, wala pang 1 month. walang tint windshield ko so ok lang naman ;


  • ^, medyo pricey din si PIAA, kaya gusto ko sigurado ako before biting the bullet. Windshield tint is another topic — so far yan ang lightest ceramic tint na available locally na neutral ang color, higher ones, yung 60-65% VLTs are either blue or green shaded, so that's where I settled (35% VLT). Ayaw ko din kasi mag-bare sa windshield kasi I'll be obliged to use those dash covers para lang mapahaba yung buhay ng dash ko at hindi mag crack agad due to UV exposure.
  • Speaking of dashcam, i use capacitor type and removable para kapag nakapark sa arawan madaling i-manage and long life kahit maarawan.
  • Guys, kailangan ko bang ifully-deflate(from 34psi) yung tire pag mag palit ng valve stem?
    pwede din ba kahit sa flatland lang(wala kasi akong pang jack ng car)

    Issue: sa shell station kasi ako laging nagpapahangin(monthly) kaso kahapon error(ayaw mahanginan nung front left tire) baluktot kasi yung valve core


    pero pag uwi ko ginamit ko yung portable tire inflator gumana naman (maingay at sobrang init kagad after 5mins/5psi) kaya bihira ko lang gamitin
