Got mine changed after running on stock for 94k on odo. I can’t recall if there is any difference or sign of absorber aging and being peculiar and curious, I try my very best to feel for any hardness/sound when the car drive through potholes. Trying to remember almost every feel of it driving (driving over the yellow lines (zebra crossing), cornering, and over those potholes, I thought I could compare what it would feels like after changing to Koni FSD.
The price is quite hefty tho, mid 3k. Finger crossing it’s worth every cent spent. After I got the car, drove it back home and along the way, I didn’t feel any different to be honest. I got quite disappointed to be frank. I thought to myself, this is my last to get a “luxury” mod.
So that was my first day experience with it. Then as time passed, I drove my car like I used to (normal city driving) and at time, I try to feel if it do have any different comparing the experience of before-mod. Probably it’s only short drive or probably like what some have said, it needs to “run in” and only then one could feel the exceptional feature of Koni FSD. Only time will tell.
Only when I found a chance to really put it to full test when my family organized a trip to Genting. I can feel that the car is slightly more comfortable, it didn’t have the “floating” feels. It’s more “planted” on the road. And, the huge difference that I proudly say, it improves alot on cornering. I don’t know how to describe it, but like what posted by some reviewer on the forum, it corners horizontally. Usually when I drive up hill on a stock shock, on every corner I made would make the passengers to move from one side to another. I myself would need to align alittle to better position myself doing the corners. But after the replacement, it’s turns out to be a different experience. I would gives it a thumbs up. Oh and, after coming back from that trip, driving on short trips do makes a different. It’s more comfortable driving the same car except for the abs. Excellent. Wonderful. Awesome. This is it, I’ll make sure to have my abs replaced with this on future replacement (if it’s sustainable like how the normal abs last).

Think about it, you saw a parking spot and you try to reverse in but there is a divider that is at the blind spot and you gave up that parking lot? Or have you ever hope to have a third eye that you could look at the back of your car without even turning your head back and still able to have a view of the rear? Well, it was not so much easier until technology has proven it otherwise.
You probably have got it that the rear view camera or some might have called it backup camera that is being used in most high-end automotive cars that comes in handy and could have just be a standard replacement to the mirrors. It is so much so convenient that you don’t have to tilt the conventional mirror or even having to align you position to reach out the blind spot that you need to look at (especially when you’re trying to park your beloved car.)
And little that I know, there have been continuous improvement on review camera designs and one of it that I find it most useful is that when the rear view camera have the night vision variant. This provides the conveniences of granting a look at the rear while reversing a car at night that has less coverage of light. It’s awesome function if you would ask me, especially myself who are driving at night almost every day. This function is a must (for me and you would have that in check list if you need it too) if I were to get a new replacement of rear view camera.
Sounds like all good with a rear view camera? Well I would say yes, and no. What’s the no, you asked. Well, having the rear view camera would make one concentrating it too much to it where one would have a limited sight of other place. I could not think of others now.
There are many types rear view camera in the market if you actually look for it, different brand, different model and different functionality. Even the installation wise of it could be different like many devices which comes in wireless instead of wired, makes the installation more neat and practical. You would not want all the wires hanging below the carpet after installing the camera and found out one day the camera isn’t working due to the wire got cut?
Head over to rear view camera to read further on the advantages and disadvantages of having rear view camera, as well to help you in deciding if you really need one. I believe gathering more details before indulging into buying it would justify further on the practicality of it.
