Regarding the immobilizer, when i switch the ignition (without starting the engine) the immobilizer light comes up and when i start the engine this light goes off.. so wanted to confirm if Sportz version some with immobilizers or not.

As per my earlier understanding none of the variants of i10 had an immobilizer. I just double checked the i10 website. Under <Safety & Security> , there is no mention of immobilizer.(Refer the snapshot below)

I am wondering if this is something that they have silently added lately in response to iCATS of Maruti.

Regarding the red button, i today checked my car which was purchased in May 2009, I do not have it.

Regarding the pics posted by prince my car has beige interiors & beige boot, so i guess i was the one of the last persons to be with this car. i also think that my car is not equipped with immobilizer.

But, overall i m happy with the car. But, one doubt that creeps up in my mind that why hasn't hyundai updated it on its website. also, after may 2009 the discounts increased by about 7-10k on i10. Shouldn't hyundai increase the price or lower discounts if it added a valuable feature like immobiliser.

@prince85,
I saw in your garage, you have mentioned that you have changed the headlamps to "Philips Rally 90/100w Halogen Bulbs" and "Roots Headlight Relay Kit". I was of the opinion/heard that i10 headlamps cannot be upgraded. Could you please give more details on this. Cons, pros and costs, etc.

Guys,
I assume that we all are in the same boat with regards to the stock headlamps in i10 which is very bad, so i thought would bring this up in this thread.

The issue has already been extensively discussed in this thread. You can use the <search> option to look for it. Link to one of the post in this thread that might be of interest to you is (i10 kappa sportz - 1 year/16K kms ownership report)_

Well i got the original Roots Relay kit which includes a headlight relay, complete socket-to-socket kinda wiring including heavy duty holders. This entire kit cost me around 700 bucks. I got Philips Rally 100/90w halogen bulbs in H4 for 300 bucks and all got done for 1k. The difference is surely there to be seen.

I have P4 HID's in the headlights(50W) as well as fog lamps(35W) of my SX4 and the daylight kinda vision it gives me at nites is insane. The philips rally in my i10 obviously doesn't give me the same sorta feeling but then its way better than the stock i10 setup by a mile.

I'd say go for it!

My buddy who got his car couple of days back has an immobilizer equipped model.

So when exactly did Hyundai start putting immobilzers in i10?

Yes, I know about using Osram or Philips but i did not know about using the Root Relay and increasing the wattage itself. Because I was of the opinion or rather i was told by the service guys that we cannot upgrade the wattage in i10 because the holders. In fact this was news to me.
But i have decided on going in for Philips Xtreme Power and would be changing it this week.
Your ownership reviews are so good and i have been following it right from day one and will not afford to miss each post on your thread.

@prince85,
Thanks for the info and i have decided to try the philips xtreme power right now.

Hi,

I got my i10 in the month of June and at that time I got some news that they were going to put the immobilisers in i10 ala iCATS in the Marutis.

I asked the HMP guys about this and the showroom (HMP Chennai) told me that was I was correct but I would have to wait for atleast a month to get that model since they had just started production of those models (with immobilsers). While I was wondering whether to wait for that since when they tell a month it may go on to two or more than that, they offered to put in a remote key lock with immobilser (NIPPON) as a free accessory to compensate for that.

I thought what the heck, anyway I am getting a immobliser (a genuine Hyundai accessory) so I went for that offer.

So my guess is all the i10s that are coming out of production after the month of Aug or Sep should be having this. But don't know for sure.

When you go for refueling and go for tank full, you would have noticed that the machine/nozzle keeps on filling the petrol and eventually stops when it gets a feedback that the tank is full. That is called auto-cut meaning the fuel supply is automatically cut off sensing that the tank is full. Normally, you can put more fuel even after the auto cut has happened eg till you start seeing the fuel overflowing( not a nice thing to see ). Thats the actual tank full
Guys! An update. Finally my i10 managed a mileage figure of 14 kmpl in the city with 100% AC!!

So the baby, after 1.1 years and 9038 kms finally attained the figure. Last fill had returned 12.5 with HP Power. This time it was HP normal. But the factors responsible for this mileage, i feel, are
1) Was hardly involved in bumper to bumper crawling traffic in the duration of measurement.
2) Changed my driving style i.e., consciously followed all the advice given in this excellent thread! Thanks a lot guys. This thread definitely teaches one and all, how to get the best out of our i10 kappa!

Figures:
Auto cut off fill to Auto cut off fill distance travelled: 339 kms
Total filled : 24.22 litres
=> mileage of : 13.99 kmpl

Glad you made that choice. Personally, I am very skeptical of adding additional relays etc i.e playing around with any electricals impacting the standard specification.
Do update us on the results and your experience with the same.

I am so happy to hear that. Given that you have just achieved what fellow owners would also be looking to do - why dont you sum up the exact changes in driving style that you adopted which you believe led to this benefit. I know that there are posts in this thread either by me or other fellow owners regarding this subject - but a consolidated post listing the same would be really useful for one and all. And it would be no better than coming from you who has just seen some +ve result
