And welcome to the SX club! lolz. SX best value out there! mine's a light graphite.

Hi all

My personal perference is immobolizer to safeguard the car.

Let's say if the thief wants the car, he can break window, disable the alarm and hotwire it. If your car is really worth it, they can even send a tow truck to scoop your car up and drive off with it.

If the thief wants the cash card, laptop etc, he can just break the window and then get whatever he wants.

I have never had an expensive alarm so not sure if it is worth it but all the cheaper ones I have used can be disabled quite easily.

Of course there are some who link up the alarm to their mobile phones to inform them but not really useful if the thief is going steal your cash card or laptop.

End of the day, advice from a mechanic is that if you really want it cheap and good, your car should have an immobolizer plus a wheel lock and a gear lock to safeguard your car.

I practise that when I drive up North.

Any bros can share more tips?

I think the price may be a bit at the high side. Considering the total repayment with interest is around 60K. Yesterday I saw Chevrolet cruze only selling for 50K+ at IMM. The forte should be somewhere similar or higher a bit with this price.

Why not? My ex car, Mazda 2 SP used for 4 years also without alarm. Current car, I also opt not to have by getting rebate from my SE when he offer to give alarm.

To me mmobiliser plus a wheel lock is good enough.

Hi

If you really want to compare the prices, you need to find out their OMV.

I narrowed my search according to my budget - similar to the cars compared in the current AA magazine issue. Honda Jazz, Latio, Forte and Cruz.

Not really willing to pay so much for the Jap cars so it was Forte or Cruz. Avante was out as the new model was coming out much later.

I went for great design and a lot of great equipment for the price that I pay. Cruz had 6 speed but it has lower BHP and fuel consumption is not great.

Forte's ride quality can be improved (too bumpy) but I can live with it.

I paid 58000 plus for engine start and whether worth it or not, I can't say as it is up to the individual. Those who bought when the COE was very low last year are selling their cars for a profit now or at least zero depreciation. This is because the buyers don't bother checking the COE, cost of car price last year etc. The buyers now buy it based on current price depreciation. Therefore, it is up to you whether you need a car at this present moment.

Have also driven a Hyundai for 8 years. It is very very reliable. Never failed me even going up North. Spare parts are cheap when you purchase from Ming Ghee or other suppliers. KIA has external suppliers as well.

Driven Jap cars before too and all cars are about the same when you reach the 6-7 year mark when everything starts falling apart.

If the Korean cars are not good, the taxi companies would have not have invested in them even though they are cheaper.

Petrol-wise, it is really whether you wish to sacrifice weight, safety over lighter cars. Check the Australian NCAP, Euro NCAP and NHTSA for all your choices. After having been in accidents before, I think that should be the most important consideration.

Take care
D

New Forte SX (A) at $57,999 with BK, 17" sport rims, Solar Film, Bluetooth and car mats

Hi!

$57,999 for SX (A) with BK, 17" sport rims, Solar Film, Bluetooth and car mats is a good deal!

I booked the same model 2 weeks ago at the same price but no BK but with sound cladding, car mat, solar film only. I would say that you have a great deal!

For solar film LTA max is 30% front and 70% rear.

Whatever the SE's give you besides the company's promo is out of their pockets. Their basic is around $300 and the rest commission. However, Forte and Koup sales have been brisk lately and are likely to surpass Avante.

Choosing a Forte or Avante is 100% worth it based on the features alone.

Your friends say ex? Nope when comparing to Corolla which is more ex and much less features as standard.

Enjoy your ride and I will be collecting mine this month end.

Cheers!

Hi,

I also book the car on 7 Mar, with color: Light Graphite. Currently no stock. Next shipment will be in end April. At least tats wat the SE told mi.

Manage to get Visor, 3A car mat, replace the bodykit with reverse cam/GPS n mud guard (Don know for wat purpose ) n TG solor film voucher, $250. As long as from the specs just try to ask. Razz

Is it enough?? But didnt manage to get the COE for this time round..

Hi!


I guess the basic freebies that one should have are solar film and mats.

The COE that C&C Fulco bid this time was $19,200, that's why never kenna. If they bid $21,000 then safe.

For me, I won't go for mud guard and seldom encounter mud on local roads but it's your choice . The reverse cam and GPS is the integrated one on the pop-up console above the sound system right? This one cool as there won't be any wire linking to the power source.

Hopefully, you'll get the COE during the next bidding.

Cheers!

Hi Cyz


I got my COE (my 1st bid) for the Feb 2nd Open Bidding Exercise at $20,340. The SE who is my friend told me they bid at $20,800.

OMV for Forte 1.6 SX (A) is $14,300 compared to Avante 1.6 S (A)at $11,500.

Thanks for your feedback though

Apart from OMV, the car is as good as it gets honestly.
wrt reliability, the comments from my friends who drive in USA just brushed it off saying that we don't drive our cars here long enough for 'reliability' issues to kick in.
