3 taon na pala akong nagmamaneho sa maynila. akalain mo yun?
3 taon nakikipagbuno sa mga jeep, bus, motorsiklo, at pedestrians. thank goodness i’ve come out unscathe… but i did nearly burn or blow-up the car. that was something. 😀
and yun lang ang maganda sa bagong kotse: wala gaanong sakit ng ulo. di kagaya pag 2nd hand, bigla na lang may lalabas na problema, kahit na well-maintained siya.
maybe advantage din ang nagagamit siya for both long and short trips… i get to periodically check the basics (BLOWBAG) and i know how to change a flat tyre. 😛 and ngayon, tag-ulan na naman. and napansin ko na the wipers have started skipping and streaking. manufacturers and experts “recommend” changing wiper blades annually (i.e. more money for them) but i didn’t bother. i just maintain them by cleaning them regularly. but having these symptoms and 3 years of use, i think it’s about time i replaced the wipers.
instead of replacing them with similar stock wiper blades, i thought it’s a minor ‘upgrade’ that Percy could do. also, i want to try something else, something different from the default wipers i’m already used to. so i saw these ones on Lazada that came with a free umbrella! Bosch is a known brand for car parts, but not exactly wiper blades. at least not to me. the other option was the upgraded wipers from the stock wiper manufacturer but they were P600 more with freebies (sun shade) which i really didn’t need. i chose the more practical route and bought the Bosch branded ones.
installation was a breeze. the fit was perfect (knowing that the wiper lengths needed were 24″ and 14″) and i have this giddy feeling, like a satisfaction that i have something different from other Vioses (is that the plural of Vios? or is Vios collective? LOL).
anyway, since i installed them it hasn’t rained yet. pretty sure they’re just fine with the wiper washer fluid but the real test is when i’m on the road. 🙂 we’ll see how well this ‘upgrade’ works.
