I will be booking mine in 1-2 weeks.

BTW, did you ask Hyundai (dealers/service center guys) about ABS? or how about sourcing it from Getz 1.3 and fitting in Getz D?
Wow . I am beginning to see an increase in the Getz CRDi owners in our forum .
I am also expecting 18 on the highway .
About ABS , i asked the dealers and NO way to fit them in. The Best Option is to get a good set of rubber like Michelin , Yokohama etc .

I am disappointed with this part. A set of broad rubbers is for sure!

Anyone knows about after market ABS? Or am I stupid?

There is nothing like aftermarket ABS. It should be the stock one.

I just took the TD of Getz 1.3. They came with that to my office. And when asked abt the 1.5D (black), they are telling that the waiting period is 3-4 months and other colors they can get in 4-5 weeks! so guys from Bangalore, plz confirm abt the waiting period for the Black Getz CRDI! I am confused.

undead,
Good tires can't replace ABS. Wheels will lock if you slam breaks at high speed.

We need to learn how to modulate breaking pressure(thats what ABS does) so that we can prevent wheel locking.

I am not saying good tires are a replacement for ABS , i am saying that it will increasing the overall safety. I have heard people say that good tires improve braking .
May be the word "option" in that previous post might have triggered this doubt in your mind.

@undead: You dont need to change OE bulbs.. They are the best .. get them properly focussed.. That will do wonders..

Also, you need to change the dealer if he cannot solve your "click" noise..dumber doesnt know much about silly issues..!

undead,

Using performance tires like PP2s will reduce braking distance by up to 6% than regular comfy tires.
