Anybody got a clue whether the armrest can be retrofitted? Guess they have it only on the top-end models and I have a Magna.

I have gone for an after Market Arm-Rest. You can get it at e-Bay for ~1k or even less. did a DIY with the installation. But you need to drill a couple of holes on the center console You would not be able to use one cup-holder too. Shall take some photos tomorrow in daylight and post it here.

As for the arm-rest the Asta has an integrated seat armrest that can manually go all the way up and parallel to the seat or can be brought down. The cubby hole between the two front seats can accommodate an after market armrest which are available at many car accessories fitment shops!
Skipping out on safety features is not a cool thing by an manufacturer. Looks more like an oversight by Hyundai!

I was quite hoping I could get the OEM look without compromising on the cup holders as well.

Now that it doesn't seem feasible, nettooran can you upload pics of your armrest as well? Would help me decide. Saw a pic uploaded by a member somewhere on the forums about an armrest with a small fold out cupholder at the back (a la Vento). Keen on getting something similar, although I remember reading that it cost him 5k!!

The red circles shows positions where I have drilled. The yellow circle shows position where I intended to drill , but could not since it needed the seats to be removed and I did not have the right sized spanner to remove the seats. At present all screws are fixed towards the rear. since there is no support at the front, I fear that a heavy weight on the from side may break the supporting panel. Shall Do it as soon as I am able to find a spanner to remove the seats.

Hey guys!

No new trips & tricks? It's been a while now.

Btw, I discovered that the power windows work even after the car has been switched off for another 20 seconds or so. Was about to come and post when I happened to read through the tbhp review where they had covered it as a feature!

Not a tip or trick as such, but I retrofitted full LED fog modules after opening up my stock fog lamps!

Now they have a nice cutoff and are way brighter than stock halogens!

If you can get them, you can modify and remove the drls and they can be retrofitted inside the main headlamps! But that'll involved opening up the lamps lenses etc.
It can't be a direct plug&play due to the triangular design!

Currently, I'm exploring the idea with curved drls, but if I ever open my main beams, I'll retrofitted full LED low and high beams as well!

This is for an i Gen i20 that was bought a little before the DRL version was launched. It has triangular fogs like the current ones, but without the DRL's.

For a quick and dirty retrofit, I suppose all you need to do are draw a pair of wires to a switch on the dash or to the parklights with a relay, but wanted to do a more proper install

I bet you can directly retro the drls fogs then! Hyundai techs usually don't know anything about this and they automatically assume it's impossible!
There will be a DRL relay involved apart from the drl fogs or it might even be built into the foglamp housing! You'll have to check the rear of the bumper to see whether mounts for fog lamps are present or not.
Usually the relay will turn on the drls when your car starts and will be responsible for dimming them when your parking or headlamps come on, and will turn them off automatically when you switch off the car! Under ideal conditions, a switch wont be needed for drls!

Question Re: Hyundai i20 - Tips & Tricks

Hi nettooran! I too have installed an aftermarket armrest in my i20. I must say its a very useful thing to have. But I wanted to ask that, do you hear any rattles when going over rough roads? because I am already hearing some rattles from my armrest.

I have a 2013 i20. Whenever I connect my phone (Android 4.2), only the number displays in place of the name, ie John shows as +919829998299(sample, don't try calling this number, you will find no John at the other end! )

Hey guys,

Was just randomly trawling ebay when I found this.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Silicone-Cov...d1b3a2&vxp=mtr

Looked interesting, especially since the SA once mentioned that the flip key costs some INR 8k if damaged/lost.

Has anyone used anything like this before. Any reviews would be welcome.

The only problem I can foresee as of now is that my Magna version has the boot open button as the third button on the key whereas it is the middle one on most of these covers. But I guess that is something that I can live with/get used to.
