Car Talk / Re: Golf 3 Manual by ziccoit: 4:21pm On Sep 11, 2013

Of course it does. While we're on the subject, the brakes fail, the engines are prone to catching fire, the automatic transmissions explode at highway speeds, the manual gearboxes seize up at highway speeds, the central locking malfunctions, and can lock you in, the steering wheel has been known to come off.

Please, don't buy one.

Mr president watch your back, these people does not want you to contest for 2015 election.

Nonsense. Why GEJ would be prevented from contesting in 2015? Must he only contest under PDP? Last time I check, there are over 40 political parties in Nigeria. Let him move to APGA, AC, NCP etc if PDP rejects him. Has he exhausted his goodlucks and ' I have no shoe' nonsenses.

@Trac, nothing. I just want to have the knowledge.
Car Talk / Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by ziccoit: 7:09am On Sep 06, 2013
Such antifreeze should be nowhere near an MB.

All MB's (at least my generation and a few others before it) use hybrid based antifreeze. Total Coolant is useless and WILL damage the water pump bearings. I addition to that, it doesn't do the job well under extreme conditions. Mercedes Benz's coolant packs a lot of "punches." Expensive though! There is an alternative and approved also by Mercedes. Valvoline Zerex G05! Apparently, it is the same as the formulation for MB's cooling fluid. This is because Valvoline formulated the MB fluid. MB fitted water pumps should go-near two decades of use. This will only be achieved using the correct fluid specification. The bearings will get overstressed with the conventional antifreeze installation. Water-pump "job" is expensive and can only be done one way; the right way. Omitted precautions and cut-corners will require repeat-service(s) till it's done right.

What if Valvoline ZerexG05 and MB coolant are not available? What are the other ways out?

Car Talk / Re: Cotonou Car Purchase Issues. by ziccoit: 5:44am On Sep 04, 2013

So give me a very good reason why I have to go to Cotonou to buy a 1999 Camry for 850k when I can get it in Lagos for 900k. At least I get to drive it the same day if I buy in Lagos and I will also have rest of mind. Trust me 50k is not worth the stress of Cotonou. Been there done that. Sometimes u even have to wait for like a week before u get ur car, only to find out some parts are missing, fears of fake custom papers etc. And if u take out transport and hotel (if u wanna stay there to monitor the processing), then u would have exhausted the 50k. For me its waste of time and energy. Unless one is buying a very old car say like 97 models and below, cars u can't easily find in Lagos that is the only time it is advisable to go to Cotonou.

1999 toyota Camry @op mentioned did not include his commissions. Adding his commission to what you explained above can bring the landing price to close to 950k.

aisha2: When I go for service I notice that most of the Volvos at the service centers some packed for long are s80s.
I also heard from the Mechanic that their parts are pretty expensive.
I prefer S40, S60 to S80, it seems to be the most problematic of the new versions.
It is the flashiest but also the gives the most headaches in my opinion

I see now that those who are against APC are not concerned with politics, governance, or policies, but only with ethnic and religious hatred. Hatred that doesn't make sense because APC is NOT a muslim party.

Here is a list of the Christian (and many Igbo) executives in APC's national party. The list includes their name, former party, state of origin, and current position in the APC national leadership. There are 35 national positions total, as you can see, 17 are occupied by Christians.

1. Otunba Niyi Adebayo, ACN, Ekiti State, APC National Vice Chairman (South-West).
2. Chief (Knight) Tom Ikimi, ACN, Edo State,APC National Vice Chairman, South/South
3. Mr. Uzo Igbonwa, ACN, Anambra State , APC Deputy National Youth Leader
4. Chief Kenneth Kobani, ACN, Rivers State, APC National Ex-Officio (South/South)
5. Mr. Antibass El-Nathan, ACN, Taraba State, APC National Ex-Officio (North- East)
6. Emma Eneuku , ANPP, Enugu State, APC National Welfare Secretary
7. Nelson Alapa, ANPP, Benue State, APC National EX-Officio (North Central)
8. James Ocholi (SAN), CPC, Kogi State, APC National Deputy Legal Adviser
9. Sharon Ikeazor, CPC, Anambra State, APC National Women Leader
10. Pastor BD Lawal, CPC Adamawa State, APC National Ex-Officio (North-East)
11. Senator Annie Okonkwo, APGA, Anambra State, APC National Deputy Chairman
12. Senator Ositsa Izunaso, APGA, Imo State, APC National Organizing Secretary
13. Sunday Chukwu, APGA, Ebonyi State, APC Deputy National Secretary
14. Dr Jok Alamba, APGA, Plateau State, APC National Ex-Officio
15. Dr Anyim Nyerere, APGA, Abia State, APC National Vice Chairman (South-East)
16. Emeka-Olisa Akamukali, DPP, Delta State, APC National Auditor
17. Sir Romanus Egbunike, DPP, Imo State, APC Deputy National Welfare Secretary

Thank you and thank you and thank you.

My predictions: GEJ will fail to secure PDP ticket for 2nd term. He will either fail or voluntarily drop the intention to rerun. The Atiku's group will go back to PDP. A Northern Muslim will clinch the PDP Presidential ticket. APC too will feed another Northern Muslim as her presidential flag bearer. The SSner and SEner will be at lost as to who to support now that their GEJ is out of the equation. Their elders would be bought and used to crumble any kind of resistant from those region youths.
If GEJ now insist on maintaining the present scenario, APC and the Nigerians will laugh last by 2015. Either way Mr GEJ is a goner.

PapaBrowne: Is it any surprise that all the names are from a single region in the country? Is it it evident already that it is the same born to rule mentality that is driving their decisions. Only Amaechi and his 2 senators are non northerners.

The same people who intensified Boko Haram just to make live to their promise of making the country ungovernable. Now Boko Haram is literally over and they are beginning to show face one by one.

Just one word: As they gathered together in 2011, so shall they gather again in 2015. A sthey were beaten in a landslide in 2011, so shall they be shattered again in 2015

Most of you people are liers. Why don't you try and face the fact as it is? Have you forgotten how this started? Let me remind you? It was started in 1999 when an agreement was reached in PDP to start rotating power between the South and the North so that there would be peace. In 2007, Ya'adua kicked started the North's turn in fulfillment of the agreement. His 'premature' exit paved way for Mr GEJ to complete what he started with his boss. He was expected to leave so that the North would come onboard only to turn around acted as if there was noting at stake. He purportedly reached another fresh agreement with the Northern governors again to rule for a single term only. Now that he knows power is sweat, he wants to take the Northern leaders for another ride, despite the lackluster performance , and cajole them into running for second term.
Now, how can you blame them for asking Mr GEJ to honour yet another agreement he reached with the Nothern governors 2yrs ago?

austin4real: Hi peepz in the house, i wanna know more abt this vehicle highlighted above. Purchased one a few weeks ago, and took it to the mechanic for servicing and i gotta admit, the review the mech gave me abt the vehicle wuz quite scary... he told me the vehicle always ends up having brain box issues, he advised me to change the radiator from single to double cell, and he also told me to remove the thermostat and stuff like dat. wanna know if anyone has more knowledge abt this vehicle..

It is laughable when an ordinary roadside mechanics is proving to know better than the group of engineers that build a car. He should have joined them if he knew better. Don't ever listen to the destroyer. He is only asking you to destroy your car by changing its factory specs. I want to even advise you not to patronize him henceforth. Take your destiny into your own hand by grabbing your car's owner manual and digest all the available information and follow them by hearth. Join an online community and start equipping yourself with necessary info. Preventative maintenance is the key.

Wishing you an happy motoring.
Car Talk / Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by ziccoit: 1:13pm On Aug 27, 2013

You are welcome my dear; thats exciting news, infact you've spore me to share my own testimony with you too though i was waiting to have 3 successive readings before i could come up with these, probably opening another thread for it-but let me let the cat out. However,If you remember my mpg posting and observations overtime now at one of the threads by Sienna, you would notice that i have not been so much impress by my mpg in Port Harcourt city, but that has changed stupendously now for the better.

I now achieve 20mpg in that city, its something you can hardly do with a 4 cylinder overhere (remember i use to do 13mpg, then 14mpg then 16mpg) though i could achieve 23 mpg in Calabar City. I did a some work in the performance of this old lady(w202 Benz c180) and have return it back to factory new performance/mpg; and now i can hardly stay at home at weekends and free hrs because it now drives like a good 6 cylinder machine.It's fun to always drive this ride; the lethargy underperformance of a BenzC180/BMW318 gone; even with an ac loaded over 99 percent of the time, i could almost stop and continue swiftly with gear 3 without having to downshift to gear 1 unlike before; no more strand of hesitation and underpowerlessness at hold ups etc

Boy! i've got to give this a new thread for my brothers out there to help turnout their old cars(especially Benzc180/beemer318 to new at performance/mpg dont need a new ride because of these factors, because your old car can still perform like new if not better than. See you in my new thread coming soon, let me just tidy up up some very busy schedule over here. Cheers!!

I can't wait to read up the proposed thread.
