So to end my post on this year, I’m going to reveal to you my petrol budget + maintenance, after a year using Anubis, from Dec 07 – Nov 08. here goes
December 07 = 300
Januari = 350
februari = 250
March = 300
April = 300
May = 300
Jun = 250
july = 550
ogos = 500
sept = 350
oct = 200
nov = 300
total = RM 3950
I maintain my car about month or so. I think RM 1000 total for 4 times maintenance. Repaired the air conditioner for RM 700++ . Change 2 tyres two times.. one on February and one on July. both equals RM 800. And one cosmetic repair = RM 500. So calculate again
3950 + 1000 + 700 + 800 + 500 = 6950
Wow. that high. Okay Anubis is the first Proton Perdana, but upgraded with a Mitsubishi V6 Engine on 2006, but the highest speed limit is only 180, less than Savvy, 200KM/h. I was wondering why the speed being reduced compared to their first engine, at 240km/h. One Lowyat forumer told me that the engine was capped because it was from Japan and during that time before 2000, the engine was capped to follow the speed limits, which is 180Km/h. The car can hit 100KM/h easily when you step in petal for some seconds interval but will cost you a lot of petrol. Very lot.
And while chatting with sabau about this engine during our roadtrip to Edry & Kam’s wedding at Batu Pahat, Johor using his car, sabau hit me with question ” so the japanese speed limit is the limit of the engine? ” LOL. If the speed limit of Japanese was 250, means their car can hit 250??
Looking at current situation, i think I’ll be able to afford a new car in 2 years time. It’ll take that long simply because if I bought a new car right now, this house will have to have an area to store 3 cars, but we only have two drivers, my father and I. since Anubis have been fully paid, so rather than leave it at home unused, better i utilize it first. Furthermore oly when my second brother got his Car-Driving license, he’ll use Anubis.
And I’ll get Lambo :p okay be realistic, perhaps a Fantastic Sports Machine :p . WTH during economic turmoil? Be more realistic, Savvy or Satria could be fine with me. I love compact car anyway.
As usual and like previous years, my new year celebration would be the same. I’m not a party-ing person. Furthermore with the Regime Zionist attacks on Gaza, Palestin, turn off my mood for that. PBB/UN are helpless. The Regime even attacked Humanitarian Aid Boat. Perhaps we need Komander Muhammad Ameen and General Nusaybah that will protect people in Palestin.
Happy new year and Salam Maal Hijrah everyone.
