give you more time to think abt it ;)

That's good advice also. Use for a while or until it's time to change. Or until warranty expires, if KM insist will void warranty.

To add on to this idea, personally, I find that rim size is secondary to the rim color for looks. So an option for the interim - can go workshop or diy to paint the stock rims black to make it look much better. The actual diameter of the wheels with KM's 15" rims and 16" rims is almost the same. The bigger rims are just "eating into" the sidewall space.

Perhaps slightly less sporty compared to 16" rims, but will already improve the looks tremendously. Just go sgcarmart and look at pics of the 2nd hand jazz/fit with 14" rims. Compare those with black rims and those with stock rims.

My first choice was go to AD, but after the SA says this cannot, that cannot, plus long waiting period, I bought from PI.

is the warranty for Jazz 1.3 shorter than Jazz RS? 3yrs only?
& this will also depend on one's mileage.
one might even change tyre before the warranty expires.. :s13:

no need to waste money to paint the stock rims la.. :s12:
if you pick sliver, black or grey Jazz, the sliver rims looks nice fitting lo..

True la.. the driver will have problem when picking up speed or turning corner at certain speed..
ie. it will stress more on the 1.3 engine (even is a DOHC) :s13:

hold and try existing rims (on 15" tyres) first. then think about whether to change anot when due. :s12:

I believe KM gives 5 year unlimited mileage warranty. That's actually very good and one of the things that drew me to KM.


Of course, to give that kind of warranty, like iPhone, they don't allow a lot of modifications to protect themselves. Sure will have ppl anyhow mod, spoil something, and try to invoke warranty to replace, or ask KM to fix/support something which was installed at a 3rd party workshop.


Just like iPhone, some owners like it this way, others like a bit more freedom.

Yup. 2018 Fit Hybrid 1.5. 135 bhp.
Existing stock with the color I want - white.
1 bid guaranteed CoE without top up.


Can collect in less than 2 weeks, but I waited 1 more week for bodykit. PI help me settle. Chassis and engine number all written down in contract once you pay deposit. And deposit is simply for the CoE bid.


Default accessories:
- iRoad Q7 2-ch (if dun want, discount directly off car price)
- Chose own sports rim (they help me trade-in for 16" at new tyre price)
- Chose own color leather seats
- 5 year warranty or 130 km
- Pioneer HU with apple car play/android auto support
- Reverse sensor + camera
- Solar film, not the best, but max LTA approved level
- Floor mat (I expected this one would be fugly with huge logo of their company, but actually not bad)


Asked PI to arrange:
- 205/50/R16 black sports rims (so front wheels protrude out side ways a bit)
- 5 pc Mugen style bodykit (which offsets the protruding wheels) and slightly raised height
- Muffler tip
- LED scuff plate
- Auto mirror relay






Final damage is still more than 10k cheaper than the Jazz 1.5 RS as it has 10k VES rebate. After I buy, got other PI go below 70k, aiyah... but still bought at a pretty good price, so I never research whether that other PI can be trusted of not.


So far, best record for fuel economy is 37.5 km/l on 10% city, 90% expressway if I use econ mode and limit any hard-acceleration. B4 I exit expressway I actually hit more than 40 km/l. See already sebei song.


I also like to on the aircon while parking and waiting, even when engine auto-off, aircon still cold coz the lithium battery take over.


Read that the current generation of lithium batteries lasts 15 years, dunno true or not. But even the old generation of battery lasted 5 years. So I prepared to fork out 2k to replace the batteries 5 years down the road.


I know different people count differently, but to me 2k is more or less a fixed cost spread over the 10 years of my car life. $200 per year/$17 per month. I definitely save more than that per month on gas.
And 2k is fixed cost compared to the uncertain fluctuations of petrol.
Plus basically, I can safely hoot RON 95 without worry coz fuel grade makes even less of an impact.

andyhtc 26-12-2018 08:05 PM

The hybrid battery should be about $5k to replace at the moment.
