    Just an update guys, I decided to get the Coolray Sport Limited instead of the T-Cross.. tried both of em but the former totally smoked the latter in my opinion. just want to thank you for all the opinions you shared.

    I wasn't able to test drive the Territory though.. the sales rep is a little "unaccommodating" but he did gave me a rudimentary handwritten quotation. :sneaky:

    although I live nearer to Toyota Makati, I go to Toyota Pasong Tamo (suki). to bring a Fortuner and Rav4 for servicing. I normally set an appointment a day or 2 before. usually takes half a day to for both to be serviced.

    Doc, if you need yokohama tires then they have a distributor in Chino Roces / Pasong Tamo somewhere near shopwise. If Kumho, Roadstar BGC / Makati and S&R carries them.

    I ended up getting Bridgestone, Dueler as always. For some reason, the people at Bridgestone along Chino Roces couldn't get their facts straight, and their final opinion was I had to change the mags for me to be able to use what should be for the Grandia.

    I asked around, and got multiple referrals to Freddie's along Evangelista, they somehow knew more about it. Ended up getting the tires from them.

    Freddie's has been around since time immemorial and has been the go-to tire shop in that area.

    Last year, we've decided on leasing vs owning our daily driver. This our 1st leased car.

    What made you decide to lease instead of purchase?
