Quite the contrary. A LED based headlight setup would produce the lowest heat when compared to a halogen or HID based setup.

At the same time I found this link where any and every technical information for Hyundai cars is available after free registration.

The owner manual is in separate sections though.

Did you get them changed? I am not at all happy with the performance of the stock halogens during night drives. Can we get them changed at the ASS? I do know that ASS guys change to Phillips extreme vision and Osram Night Breaker bulbs which are direct replacements but they are halogens. Please let me know if you have got them replaced. I will also check with my SA on the bulbs you mentioned if they can replace it. I think that halogens produce more light than the LED bulbs.

Last week, I too started getting a kind of karkar/chuiiichuiii noise (mine is a 2017 asta(o) diesel that has run just 2100kms) and this noise used to come after driving for some time. Initially it used to come only when the steering was moved towards the left (slightly at a particular position only) and slowly the sound then started coming whenever the vehicle went through a rough (ups and downs) kind of road. The sound was coming when I was on my way to the ASS to show it to my trusted SA. He then took me on a test drive to produce the noise (he adjusted the driver seat before moving off) and the sound was not reproduced at all when he was in the car. Neither has the sound occurred since then. Could the seat position have been the culprit in my case (maybe a particular position was causing this?). I have taken the vehicle on 50-60km drive in the city over different road surfaces and the sound is not coming anymore. strange!

Yup, the noise is not constant. Maybe that's why the service centres can't figure out how to fix it.

That sound from my car was coming from the seat. I moved in the car when it was switched off and the exact same sound came again. Took it to my SA and he got the nuts bolts tightened and greased. Have been on ~100km drive plus daily 50km office commute. No sound whatsoever.

Hight or fore/aft. I will also try it before going to the ASC.

Interestingly, got a mileage of 13.6 kmpl in the last run. After the survey from Hyundai two weeks ago about mileage and other stuff, i decided to follow the gear shift indicator on the instrument cluster, to check the effects. It was a bit difficult at first, and i found that i was actually shifting before the ECU asked me to. Then sobered down a bit for a week and started to shift whenever i found the indicator on the panel. From last week's mileage of 12.4 this new 13.6 looks good, will try to continue it now.
Downside? Traffic jumps past you at the traffic signals, while you wait for the rev and the up shift indication 😀
Not much of a problem, and I'm finding the actual 3rd and 4th drives smooth and elegant.

Well it wasn't adjusted for height or length. The nuts and bolts were tightened and greased. I'm a bit on the heavier side so may be that was the reason why the sound was coming as the nuts bolts might be rubbing against the frame on which the seats are fixed whenever I adjusted/moved in the seat.

Just try getting that adjustments done and check. To be honest I own an i10 and my cousins own Hyundais. We've not encountered any steering related issues till today. Could something similar (like my case) needs to be tightened in your car? Sometimes the most confusing of problems have the simplest of solutions

I have a Asta VTVT (O) December 16 and was following the gear shift indicator all these days. But, I never got the mileage more than 10+ till today i city driving and I was filling petrol only at BP station at RR Nagar. This time I went to Shell pump and surprisingly I got the mileage of 11.4 (Full tank to full tank). Let me try two more months and will update back. During long drive I am getting around 16.

Saw the stylish steel wheels in the new Asta up close. It has a glossy silver finish which makes it look very much like a alloy wheel.

All due respect to your view Torino, but two things here buddy:

- Those actually are 'Alloy' wheels, and not steel wheels if I am not wrong.

- More importantly, they look a lot more 'Cheapish' than 'Stylish'

Well, Hyundai calls it the 'Stylish Steel Wheels' as per their website and brochure. As the name suggests, it is supposed to be made of steel unless Hyundai wants to confuse everyone.

One of the main features which made me fall in love with i20 when I was searching for car, and made me jealous after I bought a different one was it's awesome alloy wheels. Not jealous anymore. Why did they do this? Cost cutting?

It is only the base Asta variant that gets these 'stylish steel wheels'. The Asta (Dual tone) & Asta (O) still has the diamond cut alloy wheels. Yes there are three Asta variants right now.
