you are almost there. i asked a SE and he also mentioned that the OMV difference is abt $3k. initially also considering EX but seems like the 2k extra is more worthy for the additional stuffs.

but then add another 5k can get the KOUP!! arrrghhh!!! difficult to choose man!

But the additional cost of after market rims basically cancels out whatever savings gained from better FC, no?

bro very easy bigger rims are mainly for cosmactic purpose if u really want fc then u go smaller look at the taxi toyota cedic/crown u will notice that their rims is only 14 inchs for such a big car to improve FC. drag car also use smaller rims for better grip and tyre flex.. =)

Choose whatever your heart/mind wants you to.
If your heart wishes for a Koup, then it shall be a Koup.
If your mind wants a forte, then it shall be a forte.
If your heart and mind cannot agree, then it shall be both

All brakes are effective. It all depends on the speed you are driving at and the response time of the drivier. If the driver is slow, no matter what brake you get, makes no differences...

So, mine is EX. So luan. EX sound a bit cheap. I took EX becoz I like manual. It's responsive. I would rather save that 5k to pay d/payment. Save that 5k and put on something you really like like tv.
When I told my SE I don't need 17" rims (wait till you change tyre), fabric seat, bla... he also sian. Boh tan lui. But pay booking straight away and get the car within a month (almost). Now a proud owner.

Aiyo Aiyo...


If we wanna worry about FC, take public transport....

Seriously, SX is without any doubt better! Don't be penny wise pound foolish... It's just like asking should one get a Point-And-Shoot camera or DSLR for better IQ (Image Quality). The answer is clear...

hahah well EX SX RX or KX or what ever X..

just buy the car to your needs! like me, i do not really like korean car's auto, so i got a manual..

I do think i do not need the fancy pansy gadget i get on a SX eg the aircon electrics... So i got an EX.


I didnt figure i need a 2.0.. So i got a 1.6L

So, weigh in and out, i get the EX lor, then chg to the stock 17inch hehe... but abit regret la cause i am kerb rash prone! Mad

EX - cheaper, SX - more ex. Think SX maintenance probably higher. SE said those opt for auto, make sure you have gear box check before 3 years warranty expire.

I also booked an EX but auto transmission... I think comfort wise, both EX and SX should be about the same, especially if you changed to leather seats like me =)

??? Too dark? It is never too dark in Singapore road... Just take a look at how many cars using HID and white light...

Any way, this is a pretty good feature at night.

Haha... Ok. Anyway mine is an EX so don't have anyway...

I'm more interested to find out if they can modify the HU to have the red background glow lights like in the SX! The EX is the plain white light kind only. Sian. Sad

thinkforte, if you also a car fan like my friend, DIY la. He made his sound proofing to his Mazda2, and sent his meter to have it's light change.
By the way, please check if you car has absorber. Make sure it's new one. Saw few cars at Woodlands checkpoint, kanna no absorber. Everytime go through hump, slow like the car no absorber. What's the point buy new one and don't want to use. Use it while it still there. Use the pickup while the engine still new. Faint!

You're right. I believe the EX now comes with leather wrapped steering wheel but no leather on gear knob. At least that's what the Forte brochure says...

I don't mind DIY-ing if some bro out there has done it before and can show how... Maybe do a DIY session for all interested EX owners or post a picture tutorial of how it can be done. =)
