Default 67000 kms Service Update

Done my next Service at 67000 kms . It has been around 1 year and 2 months after purchase and i have done 26000 kms approx . At the same time my Getz CRDi also did around 21000 kms in the same period. Getz is to play with power , and Elantra is to give a comfortable long journey and some fun in top speed. Elantra has touched 190 kmph many times. Details of the service are as follows.

Hmm! 10.5k for the Getz CRDi @ 47k, and 6k for the Elantra CRDi at 67k! Who would have thought that?!!! But yes, I do realize that the Getz had the steering problem looked on too- but the parts are apparently costlier for the smaller rocket (Fuel filter: 860 vs 1275, for example).

Also what is the that emblem (for Getz)? A new mod, or did something fall off the kutty rocket?

Hey Undead, Did the service guys clean only one of the fuel injector or what? Did you go for a Timing belt change during the 67K service? I thought Elantras require a Timing belt change at 60 K service. I have done 15K in the last 1 year of Elantra ownership.

Ya. Even my friends were shocked at the cost of Getz service compared to Elantra. Brake pads and Steering problem are the main things which costed me . And the ST and VAT itself is more than Rs.1000, thats what i hate most.
Well , if you had seen my Getz thread , i would have made a lost of animals which we encountered on the roads recently, when my dad killed a dog , the emblem flew off. My next mod for Getz is magnaflow exhaust and for the Elantra - fitting Hella 500FF which i bought today . Wanted to put the same setup as in Getz.

Wow a Hella. I have been thinking about this for quite some time. The problem is that the Hella has to be placed outside the body (before the bumper). In chennai traffic this will be a problem, escpecially when you park in T nagar where some moron might back up and hit the lights. Thats why I am holding back the idea. Whle placing the lights please be sure that the placement do not affect the flow of air in the front grill. Please post a picture of your car when hella is fixed.

Well, you are right about the safety stuff while parking TNagar. But driving at night will be little easier. If you had seen my Getz thread , i will be connecting this Hella to High beam switch directly with relay.

Please take care of the smoke or it will kill the turbo. Hyundai CRDi engine parts are very expensive to replace.

Nothing to comment . You need a change NOW!

I'd prefer 215/55 R15 over 205/60 R15 for the Elantra. The sidewall height of:

195/60 is 117
205/60 is 123
215/55 is 118.25 (closest to Stock).

Good to hear that your Elantra is otherwise treating you well. Drive safe.

GTO , are you sure the 215/55 will fit in my stock alloys?? I thought 205/60(width) is maximum. Also i choose 205/60 as i wanted to increase the sidewall height to avoid scrapping speed brakers in my town , as usually i go with fully loaded .

Default Re: Scarlet Beast - Hyundai Elantra CRDi 72000. EDIT: Pete's Tuning Box Added

I had 205/60 R 15 Yokohama db on my Elantra, they had a very good balance of Grip, Silence and Comfort. Since your car has pete's box go in for 215 section tires.
