dothan,

none taken.
the only reason i can think of is that it is much cheaper and sufficient
for a cheap car like wira with a underpower 1.5 EFI engine.........

with its engine power, there is no need to have OD, can't even redline
the current ratio ......

nonetheless, if you have enough skills, you still can race with BMWs and
2 liter cars in city drive.......

My wila quite powerful in the city ... but got problems overtaking on
highways and when climbing hills. If you drive around the city...you
probably don't need OD... anyway...you think I bought wila because it is
good and powerful meh? Because gahmen make other cars so expensive... no
choice lah... otherwise i would have bought the old Honda City.....

And one thing about the Wila, the front and back cannot stand any
collision. Sure kemek teruk one.... Iswara seems tougher...

hehehe...wira front back cant stand collision? got what car can? its just
that the degree of damage is different lor. if u take one G2 and colide
with wira, i think G2 damage will be greater lor. just my 2 cents lah...no
actually experiement conducted to prove my hipothesis.

ranii,

yup, me love the iswara steel bumper too......
ppl buy wira not for power, coz they can only afford this car which looks
better and more spacious than iswara..........

can't find steel bumper for wira until now....

mmm..neutron, G2 is designed is such a way that the front and back portion
of the car will compress alot to increase the collision time so that the
impulse acting on the passanger is lower.

Plastic not necesary lousy, at east it just drop but other part of the car
not affected, if u see G2, i think the bonnet and body will kemak...this is
what the engineer there told us lah...it was designed to be that way.

dothan,

i'm using wira 1.5A now... the reason i bought the car in the first place
is because that's the only car i can afford with the budget i have...and
i'm not willing to buy iswara cause i don't like the look of iswara...

so end up buying wira...

to say underpower, it's only if you want to race with ppl...in my humble
opinion lar... and also if you wanna panjat bukit...then also can feel
not enough power...otherwise, normal city driving, very good...once you
know the technique, pick up and potong cars also not really that teruk...
can accelerate...

but i've been driving my car...one thing i can say...wira quite smooth
and steady also...at least that's what i feel...not really that noisy
also.... so overall, quite a good car for normal driver like me...
