Hi, I am getting my car in Jan 05 to Feb05, how much you got yr car? How old is yr car and how come the alarm broke down so fast? Did you opt for the leather, cost me another $700, anyway I intend to change the wheel to a more sporty one. What else you intend to add on, radi perphaps as the one they give cannot play MP3 disc..... :(

hie there.. i paid s$49k for it..got it in oct
it comes without alarm so i went to johore(in scudai baru) to install that..
together wif central lockin.i also alredi install uv protection screen for the windows..i also installed hmm mine is a single single disc set.. so far i'm able to play songs which i burn from my pc..
i didnt opt for leather..the fabric they offered for e basic seems good enough.
i'm also considering changin the rims but wearing the orig tires up abit first.
maybe 6 months down the road.
there's a outlet at tan boon liat building in outram
SOON AN TIRES i think
quite comprehensive the variety of rims available.

I paid abt $48k for it but like I said need to wait till Jan 05. Mine comes with leather seat and central alarm installed. How much u spend on the uv protection screen?
Does yrs comes with airbag? Not so bother with the audio system, they gave one kenwood with single disc player (cannot play MP3 though) but is good enough. I also want to change the rim to a 14 inch one straight away, see whether they have any trade in or not.
How are the quality of the JB workshop, can give me the address just in case I might want to do some modding, is the price reasonable?

Your dealership does not have the fog lamps available? Here in Philippines, fog lamps are optional and I paid for it. Had my central lock and alarm installed by the dealer as well. (It costs a bit more, but I will have no problems for sure).

I want to change 14" mags as well, but I will use the installed 13" first until next year (gotta save more money).

how much did you add for the fog lamps? and any idea on the price of alloy mags?

and is it true that the electrical warranty will be voided if you install an alarm and central lock system(even if you get it and have it installed by your dealer)?

this is the reason why I've made reservation in one of the electronics shop in makati. i'll be changing the head unit, install speakers in all doors with amplifier and install alarm with central lock.

I got the fog lamps for 1,200 each and includes the switch needed for the front panel. No idea on the alloy mags though.

As for voiding the electrical warranty, I don't think so. Besides I had the things installed (central lock, alarm) with my dealer and there was no mention of it in the sales contract. I could have it installed in a place like Banawe, but I opted not to, because they might mess up with the electrical system. After all, it is relatively new and not much units are roaming around yet.
