It would therefore make good sense for Petronas to open shop bear the border. What's holding them back, if that is the case ?

politics n economics

why should they sponsor sg drivers petrol, its a financial loss to them , from a govt p.o.v, their subsidized petrol is for msia folks

btw msia palm oil all export, not local consumption (more valuable)
they import crude to refine

Actually I'm not fully sure (given the tidy bonuses my friends in oil and gas are getting) if petrol is highly subsidized up north or highly jacked up here in SG

Subsidies for one commodity must come from taxes from the people in another form. Chinese saying - sheep's wool grows on sheep itself.

Has anyone who has done 60k advise me the items that have been changed pls. Thanks!
Collected the car this morn. Oil was clear (not murky).

Air filter, a/c filter,ATF, fuel filter were changed too.

Engine/gearbox mountings were changed too (FOC) under warranty (complained to excessive vibrations).

What bothers me is that the steering feels 'loose', whenever i am off the throttle, the front end seems to slide (slippery). I thought the tyre pressures were off, so drove into a station to balance it up. Still the same.

The steering wheel was off centre too, so I drove to Kenny's who sorted it out for me FOC.

In addition, the front undercarriage seems to have something loose. hmm. What could be the issue here?

I duno, I think something is loose. It was ok during my road trip to Penang.

Now something feels loose, abit of rattle, steering seems unsettled and the steering wheel is very off-center.

They must have done something to the undercarriage to result in all this.

Grr...and I thought it was the last time I will be gg to C&C.
