^ The group I got it from was theorizing it might be a case of SUV drivers feeling invincible in the rain because 4wd.

Whatever the case that looks like a nasty impact. Side hit that concentrates the force onto a narrow section.

Haven't tried them but they have a pretty good (4.3) rating on Facebook. Thinking of getting my next set from them.

Just got tires from them. I highly recommend the place.

haha. when I first got my truck from the casa, nasa 50 psi pa yata. kaya ang sakit ng likod ko.

35 matalbog na eh pero mas matipid sa diesel kesa pag 30 lang

Everyone is officially cheating!

Mazda, the last bastion of manufacturers who haven't cheated on fuel economy and emissions, found to have been cheating on fuel economy and emissions:

haha. everyone cheats

Buwisit itong pauso ng MMDA na single driver ban sa EDSA. At 6am, I'm usually on EDSA for 30 minutes only (QC to Makati). With this scheme, I'll be (and thousands of other cars) on the road (side streets & c5) for an hour or more clogging up these already congested roads. Is it time to get manyak tints?

Wow! This is a Grade-A way to handle a recall. Well done, Subaru!

re: HOV EDSA

I have a feeling that the MMDA knows that this OA scheme will not work but it is not their main objective. I think ultimately they want to push again for the HOV lane (innermost) and Dark Tint ban.  But to get the people to agree, they want the public to volunteer the idea. Parang lalabas nakipag compromise sila o pinagbigyan tayo.  that's my conspiracy theory for the day.

they're not that bright to do that. (just my 2cents), you're just over-analyzing it, they just wanna shove anything that comes to mind so to distract the people to the actual problem which is the public transport is awful (in terms of driver behavior and the how people want to take them instead of bringing a personal ride), and they can't do anything about it, since their pockets are tied to them

fortunately, i travel around 6am, and before 5pm, I don't have to think about it when I travel on edsa

Ok sana yung contactless apprehension. Pero paano in my case, my kid is still young, he's not allowed to sit in front during long drives. And when he sits in the back, he wants someone sitting next to him. The HD CCTVs only captures the front seats, not those seated at the back.
