Vabs,

When i asked price of a Spoiler in advaith hyundai, they said 10500 where as trident said 7500. A difference of 3K cannot be digested.

I have booked a Bright Silver Getz CRDi and i am getting remote locking, sun film and leather steering cover as freebies. Asked for a spoiler and man it costs 7.5K. I said its not worth the money. Also fog lamps cost 4200.
Sales guy promptly said to buy these stuff outside for a much lower price.

I will have to wait between 4 to 6 weeks to get my car delivered.
Your pics helped me to finalize on silver. thanks.
I wish i could . But couldnt convince my dad for it. Atleast he said he will allow me to do that after the stock tires have worn out. Guess , i have to drive carefully and maintain at medium speeds till the time comes.

Wow .. you are getting freebies ah?? Thats almost unbelievable. Lucky guy . Make sure you do it in writing and get it acknowledged from the dealer.I took the pictures in bright sunlight just for you to show better. What are you planning for ICE ??

Are those fog lamps really effective against fogs? Only the yellow fog lamps are the best (from my experience) . I need to get extra lights too for highway drivings. Buy a pair of lights and switch 100W bulbs in them with relays and connect them to the light control switch .

Have you given any special reference to get the remote locking? I requested couple of times but all the time it was just mats,mud flaps,sun film (garware), perfume,God idol,leather steering cover.

Thx dude.
I will get it in writing. Thx for the pics.
I have Chevy Spark LT bought before 7 months and the ICE in Spark is:
Blaupunkt London MP37 player
2 front JBL speakers (dont remember model #)
2 rear JBL 937 speakers
Blaupunkt MK3 800W AMP
1 Pioneer 800W Subwoofer
I paid 27K total.

Also upgraded lights to 100/90W Philips rallye with relay and wiring.

Fog lamps are not helpful until it snows and i am sure it never gonna happen in TN(IMO).

This time i want even a much better music system. Will have to decide later.

I am buying tires and alloys on the same day.

I am confused between Yoko S Drive in 205/50-15 and Michelin PP2 but here roads are bad man....
Also having 195/60-14 Michelin XM1+ in mind.

Also i dont know cost of S drives and PP2's. Any idea?

90% of the time i alone will be driving. DVD is dangerous (for driver) for a car like Getz D coz u will have to keep an eye on the road always. Also the speed will be in 3 digit(80%+) when i am driving.

Before 7 months, i had paid 3200 for 937 with 1 year warranty.

Dont know about Yokos as they are not available in my area. Dont reduce the sidewall..MY best opinion is 195/60 -14 , it has more width and more sidewall than stock tyre and you can freely go through big potholes without worrying about damaging the rims...Are you going to install PETE's PSI .??

The braking was good even i stock tires . I did mention that the brakes DIDNOT lock up at 100 kmph . IF it was my ikon 1.3 , it would have surely locked up . I got to check it again in an open road. So , its 195/60 R14 Michelin XM+ , right?. Thats what i am planning to go for too .

Since your brakes are not fully run-in, brakes did not lock up.

My friends friend is a distributor for lenso or league (i dont remember) alloys in bangalore. I will buy from him. He will give at lowest price.

Are you planning for a tire upgrade after 10K KM?

I wish these Stock tires worn out faster ( i think i am the only person saying this )
so that i can switch to alloys and michelins . I am thinking of coming to bangalore for this as we can find lots of models there.

I am sure your tires will last for atleast 20K KM.

Lets meet when you are in bangalore. If i get good price for alloy and tire, probably you can buy from the same guy.
