  • same engine as Vitara, but tuned differently.. apologies bro hotnyh, i'm not aware of the wiper length as i've yet to make any change since my wipers are running fine.

    planning any modification?

  • I've changed them already. The driver's side is 24" and the left one is 19" though I fitted a 20" one there instead.
    Mods? I thought of changing to a 2 DIN DVD/GPS head unit but I think I'll leave things alone.
    I've fitted a Nanopulser to the battery as I have had it in my previous 2 cars. Not sure if it actually works but I get a half price battery if I ever need to change it- have done it once already for my old car.

    Thought of LED cabin lights but not rushing to do anything at the moment.

  • yes, a 2 DIN DVD/GPS unit was in my mind but unfortunately Inchape for some reasons couldn't bring in the original 2 DIN cluster despite Suzuki AU selling it as part of accessories.. take a look at Suzuki AU site and you can see how much we are missing..... this is something i simply can't understand, and i'm really toying the idea of making a quick trip to Melbourne, pick up the accessories i need and fly back to SG..

    there is DRL for Kizashi in Australia!

  • But you can easily order the 2DIN panel with the appropriate steering wheel control connector off ebay...

  • i'm aware ebay has the 2DIN panel, but i've also gathered that such panel is likely to be made in china... there were posts in china car sites about the poor quality and fitting of such panels.. buy at own risks!

    as for control connector, the most reliable brand in my opinion is PAC, and it fits well with Alpine units.

  • I noticed the DRL too. Different from the halogen DRL in the USA cars.
    Not worth installing a 3rd party one for me.. as I don't want to run afoul of the LTA. Especially when one of the top guys in the LTA enforcement side is a good friend and I see him nearly every week!

  • the DRL is cosmetic, nice to have but not a must... i'm more towards safety and handling, hence the BBK i've invested and looking forward to the front strut and rear sway bar at the end of the year..

    btw, Inchape is packaging the external add-ons seen on K-sport for the early batches of Kizashi in SG.. unfortunately the price is a killer and i don't see much interest if Inchape is going to be a tough nut on prices..

    Hmm, I should go pay a visit to the Pandan workshop. Probably need to register as the new owner of their manager's car! The add ons are- the front bumper, side skirts and door protectors and the tail spoiler? The lowered suspension not included I guess?
    The DRLs seem to replace the foglights...

  • yes you should get yourself re-register... the proposed add-on from Inchape excludes the front bumper you've mentioned, the bumper is sold separately, same for the suspension and that alone cost $2000++!

    i can forward the prices if you're keen..

    separately, ran into this white kizzie in SKD plate.. changed lane without signal and we were only inches away crashing! what a f**king dickhead!!

  • Probably he was excited to see another Kizzie and came for a closer look.
    Someone cut in front of me and braked on my way home. Idiotic driver. Sometimes I wish I drove a M1 tank... I wouldn't have bothered to brake for him then.

    Yes, please send me the list if you have it. Can send it [email protected]il.com
    Thanks.

    Actually I'd like to install mudflaps for the car as I notice a lot of spray on the car just behind the tyres.

  • ok.. forward to your gmail..

    the mud flaps are in black and personally it look awful, not sure if it is really effective but i've to admit the dirt especially on my rear bumper are getting really hard to clean...

  • I'll check.. if they don't have it I'll ask my friend in Melbourne to bring me a set when she comes back for a visit. Hopefully it's not too bulky.
