How can you say that Getz with a 0-100 timing of about 14 secs is faster than an esteem?

spawner - sorry to tell you mate. the getz is slower than the esteem. nad your written about the elantra beating the civic etc. ive been using one for the past few weeks. and its quick no doubt but i dont think it beats the civic. at least not the way you make it sound like. oh yeah and it give me 5kmpl in city.
and theres no way in hell you are beating civics in your accent unless you have an elantra engine in it or the other cars were running in limp mode.

You guys don't know anything. The Hyundai accent 1.6 comes with a 102bhp engine plus a 102bhp gearbox. That makes it a 204 brake horse gear power (bhgp) powerhouse. Obviously it can beat any car on Indian roads.

And I always thought that the engines generated the power, and the gearbox helped in putting that power to the road.
Boy was I wrong.
PS : Blackpearl, stop spending money on these stupid mod-shods, just plonk an accent gearbox in your car and you will have another 102 horses to pull you.

165kmph on bangalore-mysore road, 165 on bangalore-hyderabad road....
since my car is still in the "run-in" period, did not want to go faster than that.....

189kmph in a 2003 Baleno on NH4 mid last year... it just didn't seem to push any more and I had to deal with my wife asking me to slow down :P I top 170 quite often when I drive outside the city.
