i know a few friends who have ordered it online. it comes with new set of tires too. they all claim its 30 to 50% cheaper than buying it here.

That is correct

Rims is also a very personal preference. Difficult to see photo to decide. you have to be there to see it and the feel it gives you its different from photos. Also different quality, material, weight and design cost different price

If you really really keen? Go to Batu Pahat for rims shopping. I brought a convey up before just to change rims lol. Its a rims supermarket when you go to the various tyre shops, see until cannot decide.

Range too huge for rims. You need to go see and compare by yourself.

Bigger rims will drink more petrol.
Low quality rims can be dangerous

Use a good window glass cleaner to clean the window (careful not to spray on your paint work), then rinse thoroughly (best is to wash your car after that before you recoat. No normal washing of car won't help, you gotta clean it properly

Use mama lemon or magic cleaner(green) to wash the windscreen. Problem settled

As for wipers, I usually buy from taobao high quality wipers around SGD$3 each or go Johor MR DIY RM$9 each.

Use mama lemon with water and newspaper to remove the RainX on your windscreen and it will be fine. Be careful not to apply the mama lemon solution on other parts of your car.

Hope this helps.
