    i am unhappy over the guys who replaced the oem altis radio, with another brand.
    it doesn't light up along with the park lights.
    this was before i purchased the car.
    apparently, the previous owner wasn't too OB-C about those things.
    i am passively looking for a good surplus oem, to get it back to original dash.
    naku nakaranas nadin ako nito. ayaw mag dim ng radio kasabay ng parklight. pinuna ko installer at pinabuksan ko uli. nung malaman ko iisang orange na trigger wire lang naman pala ang dapat i-tap. sobrang katamaran? i mean binuksan na at lahat kasama naman sa harness ng radio di pa magawang ayusin yun trabaho. kesyo yun iba daw ayaw nag di-dim yun stereo. duh?! wala pa akong nakikilala na ayaw paganahin yun dimmer ng stereo.

    it takes major engineering to shift from RWD to FWD.
    does the shift to front wheel drive grant the car owner distinct advantages over rear wheel drive?
    is the shift from RWD to FWD to the manufacturer's advantage?
    seriously, i do not know the answer.
    heh heh.

    Well, mas maganda ang power delivery ng fwd at mas fuel efficient daw kasi hindi na kelangan ng drive shaft to transfer the power to the rear wheels and mas cheap din because of lesser parts. Pero prone din ito sa undeersteer kasi bukod sa turning wheel na ay siya din yung running wheel. Mas ramdam pa yun pag mas mabigat ang sasakyan. Kaya siguro hindi ideal pagdating sa mga van pero suprisingly, may mga van na fwd like yung nissan nv400 na meron sa ibang bansa.

    seriously,
    why replace HUs?
    is it because the original HU wasn't local-situation-compatible?
    may tax breaks yata kapag ang unit will require "further" assembly here sa Philippines, yung HU ang isa sa mga yan na pwede nila gawin locally.. or yung seats configuration..

    kaya minsan sa brochure, yung orig HU naka install, pero sa actual unit, local HU na madals AVT ang supplier..

    yung MB100d ng ssangyong.. front wheel drive.. ang laki ng mga kasukasuan sa harap nun kasi nga FWD... hirap lang sa matarik kasi madaling dumulas yung harap, pero ang luwag sa loob.

    i remember many years ago,
    they would import CBU sans wheels,
    and install wheels once they get here.
    huge tax brakes!

    after so many years,
    they still haven't carved the practice?
