You could give the part number to the authorized hyundai service center in your area and could procure the alloys. Alternatively, the alloys can also be brought from the Hyundai Mobis distributor in your city.

Thanks
Thanks! 99rpm is currently not delivering Hyundai parts, I have checked with them. Let me check them out with the Mobis Distributor. thanks!

Also: if anyone is selling their asta alloys, do feel free to PM me. Thanks.

I want to install an aftermarket shark fin antenna in my Grand i10. This will be a DIY. I am not much worried about the reception since the FM radio works great in Bangalore city limits even without the OEM antenna (with only the antenna base).

Now, my question is will it void the warranty by any chance? Please suggest.

Have you tried getting them through your local Hyundai dealership? I have seen a few Gi10 Magna and Sportz cars with Asta silver finish alloys, I assume the owners got those alloys through the dealership.

Hi guys,

This is my first post (excluding my introduction) on Team-BHP.

My mom always drove when we were back in the US. She drove a Toyota Sienna and then a Chrysler 300S. We then decided that we will move to India. She said she wouldn't drive in India due to the roads and traffic and stuff. After 6 years, I started pushing her to drive as I had to now catch an Auto-Rickshaw if I needed to go to tution and school. She reluctantly agreed and got her driving license. We then started looking for a car. My mom said if it wasn't an auto gear, she wouldn't drive. It had to be something compact so we decided on a hatch. My mom loved the Jazz. We went to Peninsular Honda to look at the Jazz. We were about to book a V CVT but the SA insisted that we get a Brio AT and he was trying to discourage us from getting the car. My mom hated the Brio at first site. Then came the Grand i10. It was love at first site. We didn't even take a test drive. We got in the showroom, booked the car and came out in about 15 minutes. Then the wait began, the SA from Ajith Hyundai was very helpful and he said it would take about 20 days for the car to arrive. We got the car in about 6 days. Paid the full amount, took delivery and drove her to the temple to offer prayers.The car is AWESOME to say the least and I will soon be putting up the ownership review. The car has run about 300 kms(thankfully ) and to say the least, I Love It. Whoever has a grand i10, can you guys tell me when the first service is due and what the ASS does to the car?

Thanks in advance.

Does the AT come with airbag & ABS. I am considering an AT for my wife but ruled it out due to the absence of ABS & Airbags . The sad part is that its not even available as an option. The other point i feel is that a 4 speed gearbox will not be fuel efficient compared to a 5 speed available on the Brio. Another shocking point i noticed is that only Hyundai does not provide extended warranty for it AT versions, all other manufacturers do provide the same.

Your feedbacks are welcome in this regard.

No, ABS & Airbags are still not offered even as option. FE of Brio (14+) certainly better than Grand i10 (9+) in the city conditions.

This is indeed strange - I had bought 3rd and 4th year extended warranty on my 2009 i10 AT. I clearly remember the price was a little higher for the AT model than MT models.

I have checked for the Grand i10 AT, Xcent AT, Verna 4S AT none of them have extended warranty for the Automatic version while their manual versions have it. Looks like Hyundai is certainly not confident on the reliability of their AT versions. Not giving Airbags & ABS even as an option is not accepted at all

Another thumbs down for Hyundai AT models then.

They were one of the pioneers of small car AT once (i10 AT, i20 AT) - but IMO going downhill with using the old 4 speed box on newer cars, not having ABS+Airbags on AT variants, and now no extended warranty on AT models.

The competition is catching up (and in some cases have exceeded), and AT car sales are on the rise for all segments. Hyundai should make a note of this if they don't want to be the laggards in the niche segment they once dominated.

Hi Satan's Valet,

Welcome and hope you have a wonderful experience on team-bhp. Congrats on your new Grand i10 automatic.

The grand i10 automatic is indeed an excellent choice for its looks and driveability. Where the grand i10 auto loses out is on the safety front where abs and airbag is not offered at all- even as an option. Also the four speed torque convertor is a letdown compared to the competition which inturn compromises with the fuel efficiency.

Regarding the first service, it is due after one month/ 5000 km whichever is earlier. The first service is a free service & no charge included. It consists only of a general checkup of the vehicle and a full body wash & interior cleaning. The service advisor at the workshop may try to push on extra paid services like underbody coat, teflon paint coat etc which you may avoid.

Thanks

I have a query regarding syncing of contacts on the car's system. Till a few months ago, I had a Samsung S3 which was rooted running Cyanogenmod 11. It used to sync contacts and call logs seamlessly. All the contacts were displayed by name on the car's screen when making/receiving calls and while scrolling through the call list.
After changing to an S5 (Stock Lollipop), I am able to sync logs. But only by phone numbers, not by contact names. I really want contacts to show up by name. I am unable to sync contacts either. Has anyone else faced this? I have tried syncing with the car multiple times and by trying to sync only device contacts, only google contacts etc.

Try this: Reset the system by switching off the master fuse switch from the fuse box. Wait for 20 mins (preferably 30). Switch it back again. The clock and sound settings will go back to default mode. Set as preferred.

Sync your phone again.

This worked for me when i faced a similar issue.

Hi,

The first service for my Grand i10 Diesel was at 1200-1500 KM or 2 months from date of delivery. See below.

Is it different for Automatic or Petrol ? I don't think so as the service check list behind this coupon is common for Petrol, Diesel & Petrol Automatic.

Guys, I have a question.

I have tried opening the boot with the remote button, it does not work. Is there a problem with the car? I'm going to ask about it at the first service but I thought I would ask here first. Does the boot open with the remote-button on all your cars?

Thanks in advance

The boot is linked to the central locking. If the car is unlocked the boot can be released by pressing the button in boot below the 'H' logo. Unlike the boot in older i10 which gets released by pressing the boot release button from inside.
