1)Fog Lights

3)Body colored door handles and ORVMs(freebie)
4)remote keyless entry( freebie)
5)leather steering grip, under body coating, art leather seat cover

I am almost certain on following basic ICE setup for the time being:
1) Pioneer HU (the one with USB support) I dont remember the model no.
2) will keep the stock speakers and add JBL GTO937 in the rear.

Please pour in your opinion. If you feel I have missed on accessory/ICE thingy.
Great deal. I wish you go for autocop or other keyless entry items if the one you are offered is from GMs accessories. It is JUST a basic remote key. It dont have any feature like theft alarm, reverse music, auto lock of 4 doors etc.

I suggest you go in for the Autocop with Engine cutoff. Its approx 4700/- and is genuine GM accessory.

You may also add the following:-

A good toolkit (the one with the car is very basic). This may include a spanner set, a hammer (small), Insulated pliers, Nose pliers, Screwdrivers flat (-) and philips (+), Insulating tape.

Also add a length of Nylon rope approx 10m. Can be very useful in emergencies.

A full first aid kit to include:- 15 Rs worth cotton, Betadine tube (antiseptic tube), Bandaids and large sticking plaster, Gauze Roll and a crepe bandage.

Hey It has arrived. I drove it for some 100 kms over the weekend within Mumbai. I am a new driver and didnt want to be too adventurous but would head out of Mumbai this weekend for sure. I found it quite smooth and comfy. However, a bit sluggish around 1500 rpm in 2nd gear. I wonder how i will complete the run-in. Any suggestion? I usually try to keep it just above 2k rpm.

Below are some snaps I took in IIT. Will post more as soon as I take more during my outing. Any suggestion for a trip outside Mumbai over the weekend

Congrats & welcome to Aveo family

Excellant color. the sunflim makes it look even more attractive.

Please do visit On owning a car - Team-BHP

There are clear details on how to maintain and instructions for the run-in etc. Will be very useful.
