You just needed to scroll back to some posts earlier in the thread. The number which dealers provide is the 17 digit VIN stamped on the window. The correct (and full) 19 digit VIN number is stamped on a metal plate below the driver's seat. If the car is available at the stockyard, go and make a note of it. Or ask the dealer to do so. Only the 19 digit number can give you the month of manufacture.

Ahoy folks,

I see that there are a lot of people in a similar conundrum about the new infotainment system on Elite i20 as me. Booked the Passion red Asta (Petrol) on 4th July with 51k token. My loan was approved in a couple of days and I've just kept Pramukh Hyundai (Prabhadevi) on hold till now.

Given the hype on all websites about the magical date of 8th July, I thought it'll be better to stay ready with approved loan on the 8th and get ahed on the waiting list (already 35/40 days).

I don't mind waiting, but

Any insider news? Creta has the new 5" display and they've just added a 4.3" to Elantra.

You are not alone in this case. I feels the same. Maybe it is downloading the phone call history. Also, is there any way we can browse through the contacts via our steering wheel buttons? Or should I be rotating the knob on the HU?

Thanks. Yeah, the list cannot be scrolled using buttons on the steering :(. Maybe Hyundai can fix this thru a firmware update.

Hey Guys,

I have booked the Elite i20 CRDi Asta Passion Red with Kothari Hyundai, Pune and about to get delivery by 20th July. Had a couple of questions which I was hoping you guys can help me with:

1. Which is the best place to get the seat covers in Pune? I am not going for the seat covers which the dealer has in their accessory shop as they donít have much options and is quoting 8000 + VAT(PU Leather) for the skin fit types. What is the difference between normal fitting and skin fitting of the seat covers? I enquired with a few accessories shops and they say that the skin fit types are better cause they are fitted to take the shape of the OEM seats and lasts longer. There is a price difference of about 2 to 3K as compared to the regular ones.
2. I wanted to get the LED scuff plates on the car but strangely one of the accessory shop owner said that we actually don't recommend LED plates as it involves splicing of the wires at 4 places and they donít last long enough. Instead he asked me to go for the regular scuff plates without LED as they will last longer. Is it really true? The dealer is offering LED scuff plated for Rs.900/- with warranty.
3. Wanted to upgrade the horns to Roots or Bosch trumpet horns (Skoda/VW type), but the dealer does not have them. When asked if I can get the horns from outside and they can fit it, they politely refused saying that itís not allowed and it may cause warranty issues. Is this really the case??

Thanks in advance for your inputs!

Skin-fit covers also look much better than normal fabric ones, hence they charge you at least 1,000 bucks for fitting of the same. Go for PU Leather covers from Autoform - they last really long and have good quality stitching + material. Get a matching steering-wheel cover for the set as well.

Get this done from the dealer. Ensure they don't cut the door wires completely, but just tap into them. Harnesses and clips are available for this, and the wire is not actually cut. Ask your dealer for more details.

This is just crap which the dealer is feeding you. Get horns of the same power-ampere rating as the stock ones and there won't be any trouble at all.

Good luck, and congratulations in advance!

The dealer usually does not give you too much trouble for a horn change, if you want to be safer just replace the stock horn with the replacement horn of the same amperage so that no additional wiring is needed.

Dear all,
My friend recently bought i20 Elite magna and I have been using it these days. I just wanted to ask you all if there is anything I can do to stop the horn-like sound whenever I use the remote central locking.
Thank you for your help.
Regards.

As far as I know, there is no way to disable the horn when using the remote for locking.

What you CAN do, however, is not use the key fob at all!

Key in pocket, walk up to the car, press the request sensor and the car unlocks. No horn!

Key in pocket, stop the car, kill the engine, get out, close the door and press the request sensor button again. Car locks.

No Horn again!

Hope this helps.

My VIN ends with 24*A. what could that mean?

Thank you for your response sir. The magna version of elite i20 does not have request sensor. Unless we use the key to open and lock the doors, we have to use the remote central locking which gives out this honking sound- embarrassing in quite places.
If anybody else have any ideas, please help me turn off the sound. In the other car, I have an after market remote central locking system installed. There was a beeping sound in that system too. The mechanic unplugged a cable the sound is off now. Can a similar thing be done to the i20 magna?

"A" as 19th digit in a Hyundai represents the January month.
