Order one from eBay, unscrew (with fingers, no tools needed) old one and screw in the new one.

I am after a shorter antenna too and I did search for it on eBay but unable to figure out which one would be a direct fit for Elite.

The Sparco antenna discussed previously in the thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offici...ml#post3529255 (Hyundai Elite i20 : Official Review) seems to be no longer available on eBay.

Hey Keerthivasan,

Congrats on the booking!!!

Is it possible for you to share what freebies you got, My SA told me the max he could do was get me a car cover, have no use of that so trying to push him for cash discounts instead.

Most probably will be taking delivery next week.

I got a seat cover (Art leather), floor mats and mud flaps. What is your on-road price and what model are you buying ?

There's a solid 60 K difference between the price you are quoting and mine. Have you added anything extra ?

Bangalore road tax is higher than the rate in chennai. Hence bangalore is one of the most expensive place to buy a car as you have to shell out a lot of tax.

Friends, got the delivery of my "Garuda !" the Hyundai Elite i20 Asta-O CRDI (a little too much to identify a vehicle), as promised. Booked it on Monday and delivered on Sunday, and I think this is lightning speed.

The Dealership experience was very smooth, and as mentioned earlier any freebies were an advantage.

The Antenna for Asta-O is not the long one. Or, i think the recent batches come with a shrunk one (I think i also saw a Sportz model with a small antenna).

The AVN is very good. The reverse view is very vivid and more comfortable and clearer than what i saw in the Jazz.

The price difference between Asta and Asta O is 22000, and the only addition is the AVN. I am assuming the OEM cost would be just that.

Default Re: Hyundai Elite i20 : Official Review

Last weekend I did a long drive (approx 700 Kms) in my Elite i20 Asta CRDi and it was raining continuously.

Following are few updates
She has choked 3000 Kms till date.
Car was well planted in wet road conditions tires were Apollo Alnac 4G. The drive was not a boat like, but fun, in fact I enjoyed it.

One thing I observed is that, though the power delivery was linear, I could feel sudden surge at 2250 RPM in any gears. So if I up shift to 6th gear from 5th gear, I have to race it to 3000 RPM in 5th gear and then shift to 6th, to maintain the engine in turbo state. If I up shift as soon as I see the indication in MID, there is some delay in pickup response.

Could BHPians enlighten me on the turbo activation in the Elite i20 it the behavior similar in other cars as well?
Is it legally possible (without hindering the warranty) to adjust the RPM wherein the turbo kicks in?

i20 provides maximum torque between 1500-2750.
If you shift up at around 2500, because of the higher gear ratio, the revs will reduce to around 1700 which will be still in the turbo range alone.


BUT, if you shift up at around 2000 rpm, the revs will reduce to around 1400 and thus it is below the torque reign. So it will take some time for the turbo to get unleashed.


If you need to get maximum acceleration, shift up at 2500 or more than that.

Its raining and dark in Chennai. And here's one question I've been thinking since I got delivery.

We usually ensure the headlights are off, before we start the car.

But with this Automatic lights in i20, I leave it in that setting. Should we turn it off too ? It could be dark when we start the car .. !

Any words of advice ?

That besides, i find the Auto lights extremely useful - particularly while entering the stilt parking or while getting under subways.. !

Leave it in Auto and forget about it. That's what I do.
