Wow, the depth is deceiving looking at the entrance of the houses.

I would recommend the same as Jassi - shake the car vigorously, if it does not help clean all the parts individually until they are completely dry.

Jokes apart, All the Best!!

Same here. I was thinking about ice,spoiler,fog lamps, and what not while buying the car. Now i have almost forgot about all these.
Only upgrade i have done is wheels and tires.

kp, you should upgrade tires asap. I got to drive a getz crdi with stock tires recently, there is a hell lot of difference between those and the pp2s.

Default @ 3800 kms update!!

The car has cruised to 3800kms in no time. Thats fast if i consider our other cars in the past. Baleno has only done 11000kms in 2.5 years..

So far the car has been fantastic. Three days in a week it hits the expressway and does some crazy three figure speeds.
At 160+ kph its much more stable than Baleno. The heavier engine in front should be the reason.
Suspension is hard and rugged unlike the petrol version which is soft and more comfortable.
FE: While i'm driving its 15kmpl(min) which includes crawling traffic (0-10kmph @ Kalindi Kunj ) to 160-180kph on expressway.. AC ON always..
Last week Dad gave the CRDi to the driver and he managed to get 19kmpl...On expressway he didn't go beyond 80kmph and buses were overtaking him...

Its been a pain to keep the beige interiors clean.

Finally i got ICE fitted yesterday without the HU. HU is on a south trip. Should be here in a couple of days

I replaced the stock tires after doing around 300kms. Running Yoko A drives on stock rims.

Loved the first pic with the cloud's reflection (the wire mesh work messed up though )

One still has to wait for months for Getz CRDi?

You still didn't get the HU?
Oops! Then I gotta change my signature.

Seems like you're putting the Baleno on rough waters when you fell in love with the other Korean! Bad Kp, Bad Kp!

So, when do we get to see the ICE? Starting a thread for that?

Not months... but 1 month maybe.

The Getz CRDI club has grown pretty big in Bangy, Iv spotted multiple cars on some days.

Swift D waiting period has given them the deserved boost I think

Default 4800kms update!

The car is going strong without any issues so far.
Yesterday got a tank full done and my Getz recorded the worst FE till date, 13.6 kmpl.

Got the ICE installed last week and since then it has slowed me down.
I can't hear the turbo whistle now, can only feel it
