  1. Although second-hand cars can save you purchase costs, it is difficult to guarantee the integrity of the second-hand car's performance. I bought a second-hand Sienta before, but after a while I found that its battery was so aging that I had to spend a lot of money to replace it. Regret too much😞😔
  2. More and more people are buying cars, and changes in fuel prices have become a concern for car owners. I found that Autofun can check the daily oil price and share it with you~ https://www.autofun.co.th/tools/fuel-price
  3. I recommend you Toyota Yaris Ativ. Toyota Yaris Ativ is an environmentally friendly car that maintains excellent fuel economy. And it also has high safety standards, enough to ensure your driving safety.
  4. I am a Vios fan and now here want to share information about headlights ranging from LED to Halogen to you. With headlight technology advancing over the years, it does seem archaic to still be comparing halogen headlights and LED headlights. But with most “normal” cars still being offered with halogen headlights, choosing between halogen headlights and LED headlights is still a relevant question for most of us. If you planned on replacing your current halogen bulbs with aftermarket LED bulbs, the LED bulb would have to mimic the OEM halogen bulb as closely as possible. However, some say that halogens outperform LEDs in less-than-ideal weather conditions (rain/fog). How much truth is there to that statement? Let’s find out through a series of questions. Q: LEDs are brighter than halogens, right? A: Yes. We have no doubt on that. LEDs use less energy to emit a brighter light. Q: Does LED light travel further than halogen light? A: This is a matter of light penetration. Whether it is halogen or LED, the light will travel at an infinite distance, should there be nothing to block it (vacuum state). Since we do not live in a vacuum state, light intensity diminishes over distance due to particles in the air. Water droplets could also refract light, causing them to loose effectiveness. For better visibility, you would want a good penetrating light. Q: So, what makes for a good penetrating light? As it turns out, light penetration is affected by the wavelength. Light with longer wavelength is not refracted as much as light with a shorter wavelength. Warm light (yellow) has a longer wavelength than cold light (blue). In simpler terms, warmer light (yellow) penetrates better than cold light (blue). Red light has the longest wavelength, being the colour of choice for taillights and brake lights. If you look at the “Diff. in %” column, you will see that yellow/warm light has better penetration. The drop in lux reading is lower. Even the LED yellow light penetrates better than the LED white light. Since halogen light is generally warm/yellow, we perceive them to perform better in bad weather conditions. Another factor to consider is the light source pattern. Q: How does light source pattern affect penetration? A: By light source pattern we mean either reflector or projector type headlights. Both LEDs and halogen headlights can exist in projector or reflector form. Projector headlights have a more focused beam, thus improving visibility. Q: So, this has nothing to do with “halogens or LEDs” at all? A: Yes. It is about the light colour and the light source pattern. As discussed in our previous article, replacing an OEM halogen bulb with a WRONG aftermarket LED bulb could even reduce your visibility or blind other road users When the right light housing is matched with the right light source, they will work well. Q: But LEDs are brighter right? A: Again, yes. No doubt on that. That's why moving forward, headlight technologies are developed on LED headlights. Q: Do LEDs cause more glare? When it comes to this, it’s about matching the right light housing with the right light source. You also need to check the alignment of your headlights to prevent glare to other road users. Again, this is not a matter of halogens or LEDs. In fact, modern premium cars are equipped with advanced adaptive headlight technologies that maximise your visibility without blinding oncoming road users. Summary So, it seems then that headlight performance in poor weather is affected by the light colour and the light source pattern. For those who don’t know, LED lights could have warmer tones too. LEDs are undoubtedly brighter than halogen lights and use less energy. However, if used with the wrong housing and misaligned, they could actually make things worse for you.
  5. You can check the vehicle identification number (VIN). Every car has a VIN, just like the social security number of a car. Or you can let a professional car repairman inspect it. I asked a profession to check my Mitsubishi Xpander before, and they might find a tampered VIN.
  6. If your wife wants good skin, let her put on sunscreen and avoid the sun. Or you can buy her a car, such as City Hatchback, so that she doesn't have to go to get off work in the sun or rain.
  7. A few days ago, I heard that Toyota recalled Hilux and Fortuner due to problems with brake boosters in many countries. Will Thai cars be affected?
  8. Car insurance is really important. My friend bought the Honda CR-V just one year ago. Some time ago, he accidentally scraped off the paint while driving, and there was a lot of money left in the repair shop.
  9. Oh, that's cool~It happens that I want to buy a motorcycle recently. I am struggling with Yamaha XSR155 and Yamaha Xmax 300. Do you have any good suggestions?
  10. I recommend Toyota Sienta. It has a spacious cabin with three rows of seats. The seats are all foldable, and the space utilization efficiency is extremely high. And the car is also equipped with enough safety systems. In addition to basic safety equipment, Sienta also emphasized the safety of using cameras. The car has a front camera system, rear camera recording, including the installation of a 360-degree surround view camera, whose security system is no less than that of its competitors. In general, it is a family car with excellent performance.
  11. Do you have any specific requirements for the car? Many people around me are using Mazda-6, I don’t know if it will make you like it...
  12. I recommend the cool Ford Mustang, a 4-seater Fastback sports car. It is powerful and integrates modern technology with the engine. In addition, it is equipped with a variety of security systems and convenience systems, which are both entertaining and safe. Your brother will like it very much.
  13. hhh, if you want something young and sporty, you can actually consider Toyota Yaris ATIV 2020. It is an environmentally friendly car with excellent fuel economy. And it comes with a top model of sports design. The storage space is also very large.
  14. The same goes for my Honda Civic. Some time ago, I took the car to a 4s shop for maintenance. The staff wiped the liquid clean and sprayed the developer. I plan to wait and see for a while to see if it will continue to leak.
