Cheers!
Amazon says no warranty on these products :-(

What is the link of the higher wattage bulbs for the boot? Is it a direct fit?

Is there any guide to changing these bulbs? Or can you guide me?

@balachandran -

I found these bulbs on aliexpress - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4pcs...999.264.qcKuZ0

But they are 32mm, will these fit?


Also these are 4.5W, will these be too bright?

Since Philips has discontinued those products the warranty also not valid I hope. But no issues those bulbs long life, even the brightness also will last long.
With respect to cheap Chinese LEDs the quality and brightness are issues, some lights will produce very less brightness in couple of months. Might turn to yellow that is less kelvin. Get good make product.
Cheers!

32 mm will fit no issues, you have to squeeze a bit to fix.
4.5w will be too bright I think that much is not necessary. Even driving with that brightness will be a bit problem for our eyes to see road.

Also can you share the link of 10W bulb for the boot?

Dear All, I have booked an Elite i20 Asta (O) CRDi in Phantom Black color. After putting a few dealers against each other, got a discount of 25k and should be getting the delivery by this week.
As mentioned in some of the earlier posts, Hyundai has added projector headlamps, speed sensing auto door lock and 6 airbags in the top trim. I could also see height adjustable seat belts mentioned on their website although havenít seen it on any of the i20s so far.

I believe it is going to be the first black Elite i20 on this forum .

Any idea if we can add speed sensitive locks in earlier variants of i20? Or have they added a new system for this all together.

Oh, and congrats for the new buy.

You can check about the activation of the speed sensing locks from an authorized service center, at least it can be done for the previous generation i20s, not sure about the Elite i20 though. As far as I know it is disabled by the software.

Hi All,

Wanted to know if the plastic mesh type cabin air filter in elite i20 can be changed to a paper based filter, similar to a pollen filter.

The reason behind this is that the current filter lets through a lot of dust and the ACC blows this dust allover the cabin. Felt like a pollen filter like filter would help to reduce this.

Thanks in Advance

Yes you can. In fact i changed to paper filter in my last service. Its a little expensive but does the job better than plastic one.

Thanks for the info . Is it a genuine accessory available with Hyundai or you had ordered it from elsewhere ? How much did it cost ?

Also, updates on my car - The left side low beam filament conked off after 6 months of usage. I had upgraded to Philips Extremevision plus bulbs 6 months back. Had to change immediately and since only Osram nightbreaker unlimited was available i had to switch to them. I see that low beam is much better than Extremevision plus but the high beam is not really as good.

The other issue which I was seeing lately was a rattle coming from the driver side door, (sounding much like metal hitting).Kudos to Hyundai as this was the first rattle in 35k Kms and about 2 years time. This was mostly during acceleration and braking and not over the potholes. Figured out it was due to the door getting misaligned. Tried to get it fixed at the service centre to no respite. Today, I managed to get rid of the sound with a small hack - taping the contacts for the doors with a electrical tape. Small hack but works well, all ratting gone for now !!

Below are photographs for the same, kindly excuse low quality; had to use flash due to complete darkness.

Yes it is a Hyundai Genuine Part. Costs around Rs. 600.

Thanks for tip. I have the exact same rattle from the same door.

I'm not sure whether I can post this query here. Mods : Please remove if inappropriate

One of the Hyundai dealers has offered me a i20 Asta (O) (petrol) with dual airbags for 8.3L (without insurance since I wanted to take it from outside). I was looking at the Sportz version and for a difference of 50K (OTR is 7.9 and I've been offered a 20K cash discount), this seems to be a VFM deal considering the fact that I get alloys, touch screen HU with navigation, projector headlamps, start/stop button.
Though the features available in Asta (O) is not something that I was looking for except the fact that I wish Sportz had alloys, they seem to be good-to-have options.

Your inputs on this? Should I go for Asta (O) or stick with the Sportz variant?

Prices:

OTR chennai

Asta (O) with dual airbags was 8.81L
Asta (O) with 6 airbags costs 8.96L
Sportz : 7.9L with 20K discount

TIA

If the features of Asta (O) dont appeal much to you and you only miss alloys on the sportz variant, then get sportz variant and buy alloys from outside or the dealer himself. 4 pair Alloys would cost you around 20-22k if bought from the dealer.

Don't buy with multi adapter which can be fitted in almost all cars since the wires might block the light.

Hey, can you share a picture of the 10W bulb in the boot?

Doesnt it get too bright?

Also can the wires handle that kucht load?

What is the link to the product you bought?
