Yeah, no need to go overboard, just check the fluids, filters and keep an eye on the temps.

Looks tidy and should be a reasonable runabout.

It's in for a wheel alignment today. Don't want to scrub those Chinese tyres.

They're Cratos Roadfors - apparently one step cheaper than Supercats. As far as I can tell they retail at about $87 each. For 235/45/17s.
Need some new wheels and tyres I think.

I've got some factory 18" wheels off our S-Line that would like to get rid of. 

Pretty kerbed from memory and no tyres, plus we are in Auckland so probably doesn't stack up for you.

Probably best to stick with 17s - I like the ride on this car. I have the urq for a harder ride :D Well, I will have. Soon.

Yes! Well the CD player does, I burned 6 CDs and loaded them into it this morning. Sounds really good, too.
I haven't tested the tape deck yet.

Be careful using burnt CD's, Mine got radio now has them stuck inside , supposedly pretty common from what I've heard

I'd like to get some sort of Bluetooth link in there instead. The car was available with optional Bluetooth but I suspect retro-fitting would be a pain.

Got the wheel alignment done today. It wasn't far out despite the kerb grinding!

Next bit of fun - find out how bad those ditchfinder tyres are in heavy rain and wind. Wish me luck!

as this will be a city beater...

keep the crap wheels, shiny new ones will just get kerbed again

and get some decent tyres if the present ones prove to be useless at staying out of ditches.

Mine has a aftermarket Bluetooth module plus a USB interface for music in the glovebox, seems to work alright , I'm pretty sure it was installed by ACAP in Auckland

Something like that!!

It's in at the Toy Shop Wellington today for some sparkly new trans fluid and a brake fluid flush and change.
Next job is oil and filters, which I'll do myself. Checked at Supercheap and unsurprisingly none of the filters for this car were in stock.
It takes 6.5 litres of oil!

Check the oil level regularly between services.  Ours sometimes uses a little bit and other times doesn’t use any.

Not talking huge amounts, maybe 500ml.
