your car looks a lot better! even better than my friends elantra.

i also like the ride quality but i feel it can get a bit wobbly and floaty.

i was surprised when i saw that elarntra had climate control, airbags, abs ,4 disc, and if am not wrong this car has even traction control too !!!

also my friends car has stock HU with 6 or 8 cd changer and can play mp3!!! amazing. it came with hyundai remote control for audio!

overall very happy for u mate congratulations!!
Thanks mate. Stock HU with CD changer & MP3? May be they updated it with the latter model of the Elantra.

Congrats on the scarlet beast. It's a great car and feels solid unlike most other sedans. Why dont you look at changing all tyres to Michilen XM1+ energy since your looking at comfort?

If i may suggest, do try to change the interior to some dark beige or beige and scarlet ones and it would look smashing.

Like me you too seem to be a hyundai fan. Enjoy your new purchase

Congrats!!!. So now you have one small sized beast (Getz CRDI) and medium sized beast (elantra CRDI). Good luck for adding more beasts of different sizes in your garage.

Default Michelin Primacy LC

Hey Guys, Fitted Michelin Primacy LC 195/60R15 today. Wanted to go for comfort based tires . Definite change in ride comfort when compared to Accelere. On the tire shop i noticed that BS RE88 had a small cut on the inside of the tire and i was driving hard with that tire . Thank god i changed the tires soon .
Went for stock size as I wont get speedo error if i go for TSD rally .
The reflectors seem to be coming to the end of their life. Got to change them in another 2 or 3 months.

Thanks. I have changed to Michelin Primacy LC 195/60R15. Yup , Hyundai fan . Service is good in my area's service centre . Had 2000 Model Santro at first for 6 yrs and i was very happy with the car and service . That made me prefer Hyundai to other service centres.

He is a dealer for some aftermarket products too . Has modified Baleno and Getz CRDi . I got the EBC Brake pads for my Getz from him only . He is also my friend. He uses S Drives for his Getz . Also , tire mileage depends upon the driving style.
