  1. Hi guys, First of all, my apologies for the lack of participation in this forum, due to my overwhelming work. I had two technical questions relating to regenerating in diesel cara. 1. my understanding is regenerating is to burn off the soot particles. under what circumstances would regeneration happen, ie does it happen regardless of the driving pattern and mileage? 2 one of effect of regeneration is dilution of engine oil. I was told regeneration may be successful or not successful depending on the parameters, does the dilution of engine oil happen regardless of the outcome of regeneration process?
  2. not trying to fan the issue here, but I have to say I don't really have positive post sales experience to speak about. I had an issue (servicing light indicator pop up every 2000-4000km, despite driving on highway 70%-80% of the time), since 2015, and till now, after 5 workshop visits (each visit at least a week long, with the longest being a month long), nothing conclusive yet. To be fair, the service executive who attended my issue since the 3rd workshop visit, had been trying his best to minimize the inconvenience, but at the end of the day, I don't think its something that the frontline staff can really resolve. XFS, not sure if you have access to upper management, but if so, I would really like to 'escalate' this to the higher level, even though I was assured that the management is aware of my issue.
  3. this happens in local developer too except maybe the quality control is slightly better. bottom line, never trust what's said during a sales talk. 20% truth, 80% dream (lies may be aittle strong)

  8. hi, how do you know that your DPF is full and needs servicing? is there a warning message and if so what does the message exactly says?
  9. Previously I think I could get 800-850km/tank, after upgrading to 19" which is lighter than stock wheel, fuel consumption seems to have dipped slightly, 750-800km/tank. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. Sorry I can't rem. It was quite awhile since I do it. Usually only doe it when I change my suspension, but recently I have seen some uneven wearness on my front tires so I may go back again. Think should b in range of $80-100 (not to be mistaken as on wheel balancing) Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  14. My choice of workshop for Tyre alignment will be CK Motor at Ang MO Kio Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. Getting a reliable shop to install for you would be most important. I personally recommend Nam Huat from Toh Guan, but pretty sure there good installers elsewhere. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
