Default Verna Xi vs XXi

hELLO GUYS,

I haveshortlisted the car Hyundai verna to buy.
I will be buying the petrol version.

There are two models in petrol: One is Xi and other is XXi
The difference bw them is:
1. Alloy wheels
2. 2 din stereo system (Kwnwood)
3. Climate conrol
4. Two tweeters

There is a price difference of 60k bw both the models. I believe that is too much for the things they are providing extra. and moreover i dont like the stock alloys ( too ordinary).

What I am thinking of is buying the Xi model and adding all the feature (excluding the climate control).

First question: Is it advisable to get the above mentioned things from the market or Get the XXi model and just upgrade the alloys!!

Now for that please suggest me alloys.
T ones on the verna are 14" .. I want them in the range of 15-25k, Ill use the stock tyres only. (so the alloys would be just for the looks).

and please suggest me a stereo system ( 2DIN). The Xi model cumes prefitted with 4 speakers. I want to know about subwoofers and things which i can add to the 4 speakers. I can spend upto 20k on the system+ speakers (remember the car already cumes with 4 speakers and i wont replace them. so tweeters or subwoofer or watever that can fit (YES I AM A BEGINER!!))

PS: I can go for tyre upgrade if it helps the handling is someway. and also because i have heard the tyres are undersized for the car. So please suggest on that also.

and any1 please tell me the mileage of the car. The 9.5 mileage in the test drive section is insanely low..(verna petrol owners)..

I would suggest you go for the lower model. 60K is too much for stuff offered. After market stuff would best suit you. You can get good 14 Inch alloys in that budget.

Then you just need to install a Decent Amp Say 10K a subwoofer say 5K and then HU Say 10K. So atleast 26-28K will definately go out of your pocket.

WHy 2Din? I dont get it? Why are you willing to waste the extra space you get by installing single Din. These days its best to install Touch Screen HU if 2din. But that costs around 25K (just the HU).
You can have a look at Clarion 2din HU. Just in case you are okay with the Brand.

And ya be careful as to whom you go for accessorising your car. Its very Important to go to a Good Installer. Other wise these people can seriously Screw your new car. Since you are Bhpian now. Always take our advice before going to an Unknown Shop.

OKay thanks. I went to a nearby car accessroies dealer. He told me some Neo alloys for around 16k .. the design was good. what do you say about the company?

Would i need an amp also ??
i asked abut the stereo, he quoted 9500 for the black market price of this sony model
WX-VX55S : Xplod™ CD Receiver : In-Car Entertainment : Sony India
Xplod™ CD Receiver - WX-VX55S

Is this good??

My main requirement is a flashy looking stereo with a good screen. and i would buy 2 din only as the one din looks too small ion the verna.

An Xplod woofer or watever was quoted 2800 bill rpice .. he said its 1300w
Subwoofer - XS-L82P5

XS-L82P5 : Subwoofer : Xplod™ Speakers / Subwoofer : Sony India

.. I am a mere beginner to it. So please tell me the exact models or things i should get.
I dont want to spend more then 50k (max60k) for both alloys and stereo (2din)

Well I would suggest that you stay away from Sony. Head over to the ICe section and you will get to know about much better amps and woofers which can be had in your budget.
There are quite a few threads about kitting the verna with good quality audio equipment. Just do a search

Yeah Go to ICE section and try Searching. I would suggest Mods to Move this thread to ICE section. Audio guru's can help you better.
Bro Stay away from Sony as far as you can. Sony is for Mass population not for quality diggers. I would suggest you Get a DVD Head Unit (Pioneer, JVC) Maximum 30K, Then Amp 10K (Ofcourse you need amp to run a SUB and bring speakers to life), Then Woofer go for something with box 6K, Then wiring 2-4K.

This is the best I can suggest you in 2DIN. You can reduce above configuration by 20K if you plan a 1din install. Have you seen Latest pioneer 1din? Good enough with Nice display.

I came across this two Din pioneer HU. Dont Know if it is avialable in India
Here are some Choices you should consider
Pioneer USA - Premier

This is what I would suggest you in 2din.(Have a Look at [COLOR=#0000ff]AVH-P6000DVD[/COLOR] , [COLOR=#0000ff]AVH-P4000DVD[/COLOR]) I assume older models in this series can come for 30K These must be expensive but you can get an Idea what I am talking about.
Pioneer USA - A/V Receivers

Go for the higher end model only if you badly want climate control or if you plan to sell the car soon.

Okay I'l help you in your budget. You can Go for JBL subwoofer with JBL amplifier. Must come within 15K. For your Head Unit. Search for This Pioneer 2Din HU
Pioneer USA - Premier Has BT, USB. Pioneer is Decent brand. It must come with 15K.

Pioneer, Alpine are okay brands to look for when we talk about Head Unit. best of Luck
