I am sorry I am not much technical in the car. I have done 1100+ Kms.

Surprisingly they have told my driver to use normal petrol and not the special petrol in the car. They say it will help in the pickup and average both.

I have driven some 3600km and used both the premium petrol initially and now use the normal petrol and i do not see the pickup improving its the way it was so not sure how is it improved in you case other than if you are keeping in high rev band. High rev is the only way you can get a good pull from Beat. Else we'll have to wait till the 2nd and 3rd service and I'm not hopeful even after that.

In my case, I got a considerable amount of increase in FE while using IOC Xtrapremium. Performance wise, there was no difference. I got close to 17kmpl last time with Xtrapremium. Will be checking it next time.

Here is a whole new world of Beat specific accessories(Source-Korean website):
SupeRich Motors | Car Accessories | SUV Accessories | Truck Accessories
I would like to see them in India as well .

you know what I think would be a very useful accessory? A button/switch that allows you to lock/unlock the doors. I'm sick and tired of having to turn my body to unlock the door just because someone wants to get out. Does anyone have a solution?

@Salbin, really nice set of accessories!

@bbyf16: You can get the remote lock by GM. I've bought this along with the car (at some 2.9k) and it includes a button for locking/unlocking doors. Is that what you're asking.. or did I misunderstand your problem?

It is possible with any of the remote locking systems available in the market.
The remote can be used to open the doors when you are inside the vehicle also.

Otherwise wait for any of the TBHPians to come up with a DIY stuff taking inputs from the illustration given in this link:

Chevy has a huge list of accessories themselves. Just checked their website now. They have everything from sunroofs and door sill plates to indicators on the ORVMs!

Do you think this is worth going for? My showroom also told me about this, but I didn't go for it yet.

You can expect 5000Rs for maintainance in any car per year. Engine oil, oil filter, air filter etc. So 13500 is quite reasonable. Worth looking into. Also you can get complete peace of mind.

Why can't the person who wants to get out just unlock whichever door he is using to get out?

I got Autocop Guardian for 3000/- Rs. I got the price list from the dealer and in that one, the GM remote lock costs
3525/- Rs for 2170 CDL
and 3875/- Rs for 2170 NCDL.
I don't know the difference between them.

How did you get it for 2.9 ?

use your right hand else let others unlock themselves!!! Each door can be individually unlocked and opened so i'm not sure why do you want to do that for everyone.

I got Autocop remote lock for Rs.2700/- from Reliance AutoZone.
The only difference you can find in the GM remote lock is the Beat specific wiring harness connectors. So if you go for GM remote lock, the wires need not be cut during the installation.
I came to know from the dealer that GM accessory is also made by Autocop.
Since the price difference between 2170CDL and 2170NCDL is only Rs.350/-, I think the first one may be for the vehicles with central locking and the other for non-central locking models.
I dont think we can get the shock sensor version for additional 350 rupees.
Correct me if I am wrong.
