I don't get around these parts much anymore as I have been off doing PSoC designs; however, I just got in a couple of TFT GLCD color 128x128 for testing last week:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/310876068105
and was having some issues with the PSoC 4200 so I figured I would back-up and work out the signaling with the Arduino first.  I did a quick scan in Advanced Search and did not find anything here, so I thought I would post this information; all credit to sumotoy on http://forum.pjrc.com/threads/25862-ILI9163C-128x128-TFT-driver

The test code (zip) is by sumotoy as is his TFT library:
https://github.com/sumotoy/TFT_ILI9163C
You will also need the Adafruit GFX libray:
https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-GFX-Library

- Compiled under 1.0.5r2 for Nano running at 3.3V (yes, out of spec.)  

- I placed a solder-bridge (jump) across J1 on the rear of the display carrier to effectively short the IC regulator (65Z5) although the test unit did work without the solder-jumper at precisely 3.3Volts.  

- Note that the LED backlight on this display has a 10 Ohm resistor on the display carrier board that I received... double-check this before connecting the LED power pin to 3.3V.

Note: as my intent is to use this display with the PSoC 4200 and since the source and libraries were NOT changed, please do not expect me to respond to assistance requests - I am simply posting working code and heading back to working out my ARM issues.  Use this thread to state your experience or request forum members assistance.  Thanks.

Working fine,
but it is not possible to send a color bitmap with this library !!!

So, is the lack of this capability critical? (Rhetorical.)  If so, your quest for a cheap color display must continue OR you can start downloading libraries and try and document one that works with an SD card bitmap.

Personally, since this inexpensive TFT GLCD does not incorporate a SD card on the breakout board, I do not think there is any issue here... match the library to the hardware selected to satisfy the needs of the project.

Of course, that is just my opinion,
