@ barcode - dont worry pal , paint matching is a science now a days and the A.S.S guys usually does a wonderful job of it and if its as good as new then i dont think it will affect your cars re sale value. Just make sure that you dont sign any papers for doing the work on your cars insurance coverage.

Jeetu444 i just upgraded my tyres to 195/65/R14 Yokohama A Drive and the are really nice and the added 4mm GC has been of immense help in my long highway drives....while i realise that you have upgraded to 16 inchers , it was my choice to stick to 14 inchers to ensure that there are no adverse effects in the vehicle dymanics and ride quality . the A drives being conmfort based tyres they have essentially provided me with a world of differnce from the OEM MRF ZVTS and i have a marginal mileage drop of about 1 kmpl thats all

Sounds good... I have continued the thread here... I decided not to hijack your thread beyond 2 posts

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...new-verna.html (Hyundai Motor Plaza dents my new Verna)

The damage is very minimal, and the Company Owned Workshop guys say they would "repair the dents on the fender and bonnet and repaint the them both fully" I hope this mechanism is fine...

Sorry for being a total pest!

Thanks a lot for that, I too own a Verna CRDi. I done 20k.With Stock tyres BS 175/70/14 i changed to Neo Alloy wheels 14’’ ( Titan SM). All most my tyres are 65 % gone. May be another 10 to 12 k at max I am expecting .This time as you said I prefer to go for Yokohama. Can you please check out who hold the stock in Hyderabd if possible. Please expect a PM from regarding Head light updating .

Ok now thats the tricky part , yokohama a drives 195/65R14s are very difficult to come by but its worth the effort i woudl say , i dont have the yokohama contact persons number with me but i will send you over PM , the guy is based out of mumbai you can give him a call and he will direct you to the right person and give you a correct update about the stock.

........

About the headlight updating part ... lets dicuss this on this thread or on the headlight upgrade thread so that everybody can benefit ....

This has happened to me once. Most probably , its just a jammed cable , they would open the boot from inside the car and grease out the release and locking mechanism and you will be good to go...

Hellstar,
When I observed by removing the cap of the two levers, down to that dickey opening lever there was a spring laying there with one end intact and broken. I am sure this is the problem. Hope replacement of the spring will solve the problem .

@Hellstar - Did the tyre change help to improve the overall handling?

@ kruzader i am really sorry for the delayed response , and yes the answer is a big big yes .. the vehicle is now extremel;y well planted and the nervousness at high speeds have decreased to a large extend, without any major impact on the mileage.
