just a general question about ECO light.. other than it lighting up.. what other functions does it provide? I lazy to read the manual. lol

I believe it serves more purpose than just a green light.

The Eco light up is telling you that you are driving in a fuel saving mode and less fuel will be burn as your car Cruise along with less rolling resistence. Meaning you save more fuel in a longer run. Its more suitable if you are on Expressway and let the wheels roll on thru its forward momentum with Eco light on and less pressure in depressing your accelerator.
Whereas in the city start/stop traffic condition, if you tried to apply the Eco light. You will be crawling like a tortise speed. Wahaha...

Hi guys,

Came back last nite from Melaka, travelled almost 600km. We left early morning of 8 Nov to avoid jam, so have plenty of time to drive over to Melaka, hence decided to do some experimenting with FC over 2 legs to & from Melaka.

For 1st leg, travelled with cruise control most of the time on NSH btw 90 to 100 km/h & observed that FC improved from original 8L/100km to 5.6L/100km max. If I ventured over 100km/h, FC doesn't improve at all.

For the return leg, travelled btw 110 to 120km/h & observed that FC deteriorated to 6.2L/km. Hence, best possible speed within which we can achieve Elantra's best FC is btw 90-100km/h. Very Happy

No worries, mate. Tks! At least there was this opportunity for me to try out our cruise control on an extended journey where the speed can be kept constant without the start-stop nature of S'pore driving, even on our Expressways. Very Happy

Bro check with SE what rims they have and the how much to top up. Different rims and tyres have different price.

Re: Tyres and Rims for your Elantra

Post  chua on Mon Nov 28, 2011 1:23 pm

Hi all,

Do u think is a good idea to top up $500 to upgrade from 16'' to 17'' rims through Komoco?

Know that there is better and more rim choices outside but the expensive portion is the tyres.

Hence, can just change the rims only in future after finding the rims that i like.

Is it more worth it?

Please advise.

If you wanna change, change it to 17 inch rims. Else just stay with your stock 16 inch rims. It pointless to change back to outside brand 16 inch rims and its a waste of $$. I rather you use the $$ and change it to 17 inch rims for better handling.
2011 Elantra deserve much more and a 17inch rims is more appropriate & compliment for this ride. Cant really understand why Komocco shove a stock 16 inch rims and that really put 2011 Elantra to shame. With the body Fluid design and Aerodynamic, shoving a 16inch rims in it is practically a joke to the design of the car. Thats my honest opinion..........

But still better than Altis extremely cut cost stock rims. 16" was not bad already but if change to 17/215 or 225/45 Rim and tyres then entire handling feel will be different.

The original rims no value but the tyre yes. I can recommend u Leong Seng as they give me the best and so far did asked a few tyre workshop, their trade in price and buying price for the 17" rims could't match Leong seng. Remember choose the right tyre for ur driving setting.

Well said.

Remember to choose lighter rims of 17" and make your ride lighter too.
My original 16" rims is more heavier than my new current 17" rims.

when u want to go down? We can go down with u and see if u really still want to change to 16" after seeing 17".

But if u really change to 16" than maybe u use back
The tyre and than pay for the rim than. Price is hard to discuss, I top up to change 16" to 17" with the trade in of my tyre yokohama. The rims not really worth much. Normally they can sell tyre to others and ask the party to see if they will to take the rims for free. But sometime nobody wants or maybe toouch, they just simply sell to their manufacturing to melt the metal.

Take our advise, change to lighter 17", you won't spend more than 1k. But also depend what tyre you taking.

Daniel is the big brother. Tho I did not eventually bought my rims from him, I find his service good. Just happen that they didn't have the color I wanted for the specific design I chose. Don't need to rush, see around first Smile
