TIB480E, TIB610Y, and TIB612S had their original front EDS replaced with spare Lawo Luminator Europa (now LAWO) ALUMA units that were then being installed on Volgren rigids and Habit units. Their controller units and side EDS equipment remained as it was. They can be recongized by its individual flip-dots being illuminated at night. The entire EDS set for TIB480E and TIB610Y were later replaced with Mobitec units.

Notably, TIB612S was also the only unit in the entire O405 fleet to be fitted with foldable seats near the standing area. This is now a standard feature for new buses delivered to SMRT Buses since the introduction of SMB136C (except SMB137A and MAN A95).
