Hi mykchuen bro,

$75 per pair is reasonable but not sure which yr of make is your Picasso. The last time i did a MO from Kianhua for the bros here was about $102 per pair for year 2009 onwards as the clip is different. The brand is Valeo

Alittle off topic here, maybe some of the bros here can advise what's the alternative recommended viscosity Engine oil besides 5W 50 that CnC uses ?

Thinking of changing my engine oil on my own, not sure whether 10w30 or 5w30 is applicable. Thinking of switch to Mobil 5w30 EP

hi maz,
try not to use w30 oil. its too thin.
w40 is ok.
the thinner the oil, the better the economy, but it will be too thin to provide enough protection for the engine.

btw, back to topic...i'm quite sure our 1.6thp engines are running on timing chain and not belt, thus we dont need to pay for hefty timing belt servicing cost. Whew!!

THink Maz means the wiper blade not the front brake pad...cause older version use a different blade clip....

hahah....my bad. no wonder the brand Valeo sounded very familiar. Yeah...the Valeo wiper for front pair is $75. Again, uncle quoted me based on my 2008 model.

Their tampines workshop kept quite a lot of items...so either visit tampines or norris...depends on which one is more convenient. Maybe if go tampines, you might get free installation for the wiper.

I have been using Xw30 oils since 0km (new). Its smoother than Xw40.

Actually no difference in local context.
The front number is the viscosity during winter time but our oils are always running at viscosity of the second number due to our hot climate.
