    i30 come with 1.4, 1.6 & 2.0 engine, for SG only 1.6. But KMC stop selling it already. 2nd hand market not much also, can only find 9 on sgcarmart.

    Actually different not much from 1.1 to 1.6. But always buy within ur range lor. Higher cc more power, comfort, shiok, looks not priceless, must Pay And Pay... Very Happy

    i agree with you, i was driving a 2.0 car before switching to 1.4 getz. There was a big difference but after a couple of months i get used to it and love the size of the car...easy to park as well.

    Not to mention the saving, now i can spend more on other and i still have a car to drive and the saving is few hundreds buck per month and the money go to my child education and stuffs.

    yup but most people when they are used to higher cc, it abit difficult for them to down size.

    I did it because i rather have more money in my pocket since a car is just a car imho.

    but the down size is when the car is having 5 full grown size with a baby pram behind the boot, the back passenger lap become the storage space.. hahah

    pai seh, my ride is 1.3 not 1.4...always get this wrong....

    good question, my wife was with me when i'm getting my ride that time and she is the one who decide on the 1.3 but i told her i'm interested in the 1.6.

    and her comment go " Either you buy the 1.3 or you can take the train"

    i was like ......

    So this is how my 1.3 come about... ahah

    How about engine? I will strongly recommend u to change the throttle body to BBTB and CAI. It will make the car smooth and lighter to move off.

    no nothing done, except changing of rim to 16" that all.

    If i want to change, i would have change it earlier not till when the car is left with 2 years cycle.

    That is also the reason now 'm wondering if i want to change my absorber as it still working fine.

    talk about fuel, when i first change my ride from a 2.0 to 1.3.

    My FC fare very badly, i think about 5-6km/ltr...it was only after awhile that i found out that it my driving habit.

    It because when i step on the gas, the car don't seem to move and always have problem over taking and thus always stepping more to get the feel.

    But after 4 months, i begin to face the reality and told myself, come on it a 1.3 and i don't expect it to behave like a 2.0.

    hahah...

    Oic. 1.3 FC usually is around 8 to 10. Unless very light footer, maybe can get 11 or 12, with 14" rim then off air-con most of the time.
