I'm considering a set of 17" rims, the offset is +45mm, so it's mounted 5mm more outboard than stock ones, just worried that it will be sticking out.

Hi Tiny, no problem will take a picture for your reference asap. Actually, my rims do not stick out of the bodyframe when i checked it carefully yesterday.

Thanks Saturn, I did checked the stock 17" at the showroom, the rims already look quite flush with the bodywork, that's why I'm worried if the +5mm would cause it to stick out. Hmm if you say it stick out of the bodywork, I think I'll probably go and put downpayment for the rims first. hehe

Bro..the offset of my rims is +45mm..just now in the office i took a close look carefully..actually it did not really stick out..can say just nice..i wanted to use my hp take pix but shit lo hp spoil!Touch screen cannot press!!Sony Ericsson sux man!!

Yes bro..1.9% too slow if i'm using 215/50/R17..den speed will be slightly different..for eg..if i'm travelling 100km/h indicated on the speedo, the actual speed is 101.9km/h..

Can i just double check on sumting..normally when we turn on the engine..there's this blue engine warm-up indicator light that is lighted right?
Is it we have to wait until the light turns off then we can start to move off?
Will it have any long term side-effect on the engine if we just drive off without waiting for the light to turn off? Coz i realise that it really takes quite a while waiting for the light to go off..

Hi People

Can i just double check on something..can the coolant reservoir last until 10000km without having to top up coolant? Coz last week i did a basic pre-drive check and saw the coolant level drop to half and abit more and my next servicing is 5000Km. Just wondering after 5000km servicing, the next is every 10000km, will the coolant level drop to empty, therefore we need to top up ourself? Or we do not need to worry at all about topping up the coolant reservoir?

Not normal for a new car to have this problem. Do top it up to the required level asap and get it to CnC or ur favourite autoshop for a quick look. Something is causing the coolant to disappear(a leak, or some unsecured joints). U sure U read the coolant level correctly?

Try driving with no coolant, can test whether your engine light lights up or not haha.(Just kidding)
