The official accessories price list.

Except for the alloy wheel and wheel cover (price for one piece is mentioned on the list), the other accessories are priced per full set.

The prices seem to be alright. The only expensive items are the OE alloys and Wheel caps. Anyways, it is good to know that all these accessories are available.

OT: Sid, does such a accessories list exist for Hyundai i10? i am particular in getting some OE stuff?

The red and white thing is just ugly, absolutely none of the 'extras' are anything I would want, and the interior is a recipe for a bad headache. Horrible.

Could be, of course, that I am just too old for it! Probably is... as it reminds me of kiddies' toy stuff.

Default Mini Pajero!

The leather wrapping on the steering of the red and white Micra seems to be poorly done. About the same finish as some of the after market ones. The whole thing looks Pajero inspired on the outside

Thad, haha! come on the interiors arent that bad when compared to wacky mod jobs that we see on chennai roads (or Indian roads). The interiors look very much retro. Frankly, I wouldnt buy a car with the above combination, but I am sure there would be takers.

So wacky mod job as factory option, eh? Doesn't work for me, but as I say, probably the nearly-60 thing. At "nearly 70" I'll probably be going wild over that stuff!

I don't like the Jazz interior much. The Figo interior is redeemed by there being an option other than red. That I like VW interiors probably says it all about my taste: conservative!

I am 27, and I dont think my taste is too conservative but I did not quite like the red and white interiors, became very uncomfortable looking at them, may be in meat they feel different, hopefully!

I'm remembering red interiors in one of my parent's cars more than fifty years ago! I wonder if the stuff that looked like leather then was leather, considering that it was only a Ford.

There is a saying in English, Mutton dressed up as Lamb --- a cheap meat being presented so people think it cost a lot more. This is what gets to me about this sort of car. This is a small family hatch, with a small engine that does 0-100 in 14 or 15 seconds (I don't know) --- dressing it up to look like a racing car is just wrong, because it isn't and just can't be. That won't stop people putting spoilers on their sedate saloons, and it probably won't stop people buying this .

I think Micra interiors look better in real life than they do in photos, so maybe I'm making too much fuss!

haha Thad, if that is the case how come Hyundai calls one of its i10 trims as 'Sportz'. No one would even remotely call/identify/relate i10 to 'Sports'. It is really funny how companies call their varients.

Indeed it is: I remember, years ago, seeing RSI on the back of car.

Repetitive Strain Injury?

Everytime I see the interiors of Micra, I ask myself Why Nissan Why? Why Nissan's have to be quirky all the time? Why can't they be subtle and sophisticated?

The steering wheel could have looked better had there been a metallic Nissan logo. Cost cutting at work here? The grey shade for the steering IMO looks a bit jaded too.

C'mon Nissan. AC Filter should be standard at least on the top end model. Or is it?
