    Sirs, I want to replace the seat covers. Can you recommend a shop where I can buy seat covers, preferably in Mandaluyong?

    Seatmate from Mandaluyong can do the job. They're also one of the reputable shops when it comes to leather upholstering.

    Tamang tama yung basa ko dito, because i just renewed my registration last week and got surprised na 3500 yung mvuc charge. I bought a second hand 2008 toyota altis last year and now lang ako nag renew. Kaya pala ang mahal. how do you have it changed from medium to light?

    try to go to a dealer, and ask/take it from there.
    otherwise, wala kang choice except to look for a surplus unit.

    Just had my first flat tire a while ago. I was hearing a weird sound (di ko maexplain basta parang hinahangin na part ng koche) before it happened and I thought yun mudcard na loose lang. I just passed by Filinvest exit (I'm from Pacita Complex btw) then yun na, nanginig na yun car and I realized na na flat-an ako. Luckily, walang mashadong sasakyan so I was able to pull over sa shoulder and checked yun gulong. Flat nga! Since madilim sa area na yun I didn't attempt to try changing yun tire dun (haven't tried changing tires before as well) and just drove the car sa nearest gas station which is Shell SLEX - Southbound and asked help sa mga Kuya dun.

    Now, I need a spare tire again kasi mukang may tama din pati yun rim since pinilit kong idrive sa gas station. Any recommendations sirs, preferably south area?

    Bridgestone are the best i've tried so far. Toyo brands are also good.When buying make sure you get the latest made one. There's a coded stamp of the date when it was manufactured on every tire. S&R is one good option to buy as they give free balancing including weights,rotation,valves,vulcanizing,nitros during the lifespan of the tires.

    .. you drove all the way to shell? that's quite a distance, for a flat tire.. kaya pala parang sliced doughnut yung gulong..

    that's why, kapag na-flat ang mga puj, dun mismo sa lugar nila ginagawa.. hindi na tinatabi kung minsan.. ayaw nilang masira yung sira-sira nilang gulong o inner tube. "..puede pa yan hanggang sa isang taon.."..

    Better to be safe. Going to a Shell station was a safe decision. But better to buy an air pump, that way when you get a flat just pump more air until you can get to a safer place to change tires.

    well, yes.. i must agree. i am relieved it was not me..
    it is really safer to go to the gas station, especially if owner does not know how to change a flat tire.
    but it does have a price.. about 3K.. for a new tire. i wonder.. did the mag survive?

    .. reminds me of my experience many years ago.. i had to answer this emergency phone call while i was driving along edsa near magallanes.. that stretch is quite wide..i pulled over to the side..
    pues, i still got sideswiped! by a brand new adventure whose driver was racing with another brand new adventure.. they were both being delivered to the casa..
    i pity the buyer of that unit..

    but i am curious... what caused the flat? .. must have been big, as TS could hear the hissing sound..

    i myself had a flat at slex.. the tire had no hole at all. what gave way, was the pito! it was nowhere to be found! and it was noontime.. and i had two slaves with me, to replace the tire.
    heh heh.
