I think you have to floor the pedal more to get the power.

If my memory didn't failed me, the ground clearance of the bumper should be 150mm for GLS version. For RX-S is even lower coz they add in the front skirt, i think it is lower by 1/3 by the front skirt.

My house also same as you, got slope for the carporch entrance. I kena with my RX-S when i drive in the car porch at the first day. Crying or Very sad So i had reduce the slope by further add more road tar further away. The problem is solve and nothing happenned until today. Very Happy

Thanks.


I already went for test drive last Saturday, so far they gave me the RX-S version for test drive where i want only GLS version. So far I satisfy with it but acceleration, not so powerful compare to manual, but still acceptable.

anyway, do anyone know what is the height fron front bumper to the floor?

bumper height until it reach to the floor? Anyone know? reason is because when going into my car porch, need to go down a slope...

so far, my friends waja trying to go into my car porch but her front bumper touches the ground and spoilt the whole bumper, crack. So need to change new.

Izit the bumper is same height with iswara bumper?

Noname, the additional kit is made of fibreglass/plastic. The overall weight of the kit should be around 20-25kg. It won't effect the pickup but it will increase the car performance when running in high speed.

ic. im looking into it too but need some contractor to do it due to my auto-gate at my house. afraid later cement it, my door cannot open, thus need make a gap/hole for the gate to swing to the left/right.

ok. out of topic.

anyway, the bodykits look nice to me but i will feel bored when i keep on looking at it. so far on the road, i only managed to see cars... less than 10 cars. one of my neighbour just bought the RX-S version and park outside, not inside due to slope. ahahaha...

According to my SA, KB is only manufactured out 2 Nos. of yellow colour for their management review. But because their management is elderly executives, so they decided not to start manufacturing this colour. I had driven this colour for 2 months already but till now never seen of the same colour of RX-S. So i call him up yesterday and also asking him of this matter. He told me that KB will only going to spary this colour if they received it in some minimum quantities. Till now he still not get any confirmation whether the management had change their mind to proceed this color or not. Wink So my one is still limited at the moment lo. Cool

Oh. Your wife around.. Better dun ask, if asked then Shocked Shocked from your wife already. Laughing
