Still running my Wira 1.8EXi(A). It's a SOHC, 16V 4G93c with original
engine and gearbox. Bought by my father in '96 (new) till '04. I bought
it because he's upgrading to V6 and he nearly sell it to used car. At
that time, I still negotiating with a seller that wants to sell his 1.8
DOHC. I straight away bought the car and pass the 1.8 DOHC to my friend
and he bought it.
Car still nice, 197,000km already. Still can run until 190km/h (I don't
dare to push more to protect g/b). Original paint although the bonnet got
cancer already and roof got 12 rust bubble. till waiting to be send for
complete respray maybe next month.
Only a little mod such as K&N drop-in filter and g/b cooler. Still
running with ori AAC rims. Player changed to sony (ori blaupunkt kaput).
Other than that all still running beautifully except for rear blinder
kaput (cable putus).
Facts & Figures:
*Stranded once by roadside (g/b oil hose koyak)
*Once thief got into the car to steal player and smartag
*Highest repair bill to date RM 1,500 to change all the front mounting,
bushes, lower tie end rod etc.
*Maintainence done only by one workshop in cheras.
*Things to change:- shock absober, repaint, front disc brake.
p/s: gathering would be nice. Tell when and where.
