There is no provision to access contact list. However if you press the green button the last dialed call gets redialed.

Please check if your phone is in the top priority list. In my case the contact gets displayed (IOS 6.0.1) or may be there are multiple numbers saved with the same contact name. As this kind of bug was there in Nokia symbian phones

Has anybody gotten a software upgrade on their i20 Diesel, I have a June 12, i20 Crdi and I heard that their is a upgrade available for the uphill acceleration for the diesel variants.
Upon connecting the G-Scan, I did see 2 upgrades, but the service center guys apparently didn't have a password required to complete the upgrade.

Has anyone ever got a upgrade done through the G-scan, if yes can you please narrate the process?

I went in February this year to the service center for a scan and did not see any upgrades on G-scan. Since when these upgrades are available for i20 diesel?

Came to know about it recently, but it has been there for a while.

When they connected the G-Scan and went to the "ecu" section, it did show up 2 updates. However, remember its only for the 2012 cars, the 2013 cars already have this.

Congratulations!! I have the same model. I bought the March 2014-i20 Asta CRDi model and it's awesome. I have traveled 1600 km till today all within the city in the 2nd and 3rd gears only and the 4th gear very rarely. Of this, I had traveled 350 kms on the highway and even then I was able to use the 5th gear and never the 6th gear. Must be my driving skills (or the lack of it! ) And every km was with 100% AC. I didn't want the dust to enter into my new car. I checked the Fuel consumption today and I seem to be getting 17.86 kmpl. I am working on a detailed ownership review.

I got the Amber Grey color and loving it!! Which color did you book?

Hi Vara, I took delivery of my Ember Grey Asta on Friday Jun 6, drove down to Madras on June 8 and drove back today. I used all the gears on the highway, and got around 14.71kmpl so far. My car has done 800 kms as of this evening.

Cheers

Cheers!! I used to get about 13 to 14 kmpl initially too. The figures I provided (17.36 kmpl) was an average of since the first fill and the latest fill. So, I probably should be getting more since it is an average I have taken of the values right from the start.

I am planning to take a trip to a nearby city and I should get to use the 6th gear on the highway....

Hi Guys,

i have been a proud owner of an i20 magna opt petrol model for the last 1.5yrs
recently a pmt bus dinged the rear quarter panel of my car.

now the sa is saying that they would cutout the entire quarter panel and replace it with a new one. my apprehension in doing this the impact to the structural integrity as i am not sure they would have the same quality welding machines at the workshop as they have in the factory.

the second concern is with the procedure the sa is proposing. does he really need to remove the rear quarter panel? there are scratches and some rusting . i have attached a photo of the quarter panel for reference.

the third concern is cost. the cost quoted for replacement of quarter panel is 15k approx. with insurance i pay approx 5k and lose no claim bonus.

do let me know your thoughts
thanks
gaurav

You dont need to do any of those. I have had the same experience in Pune itself with our i20 and gave it to a private garage in here. He repaired the dent and repainted it. All in within a range of 3k to 5k.

The damage looks pretty bad. I had a similar damage on my car, and gave it for repair in the HASS. The dent wasnt even as bad as yours, yet they billed me 7.5k. That's after discount, as they had to repaint the quater panel and also a part of the bumper. So its going to cost you nearly the same.
Outside will be cheaper. Its your choice now.

I am getting my delivery of I20 Magna(O) sometime in the next 2 weeks. I quite like the DRL on the sportz variant. I understand that such a fitment for the Magna would cost me around 20K. Are there cheaper options. I am not inclined to fiddle around with the stock wiring.

I own a 2012, iGen i20 Sportz CRDi, BS IV.
I would like to know what kind of Diesel after treatment this car has?

Is it DPF or EGR + SCR?

Thanks in advance!

Posting this query on behalf of a friend.
Introducation:
He owns a 2013 model hyundai i20 asta. Car usually shuttles between Bangalore-Mangalore as well as used as a daily drive. As every owner of this model knows, the suspension is very bouncy. It's like a carnival ride especially on our fly-overs. We did test drive the new i20 elite and the suspension in that is just perfect.

Query:
How to make the suspension more stiffer?
Can the old damper be replaced by the damper's of the new i20?
Or replace the dampers with an aftermarket one?
If aftermarket, which company's product is suitable?


Don't want the car so stiff that it feels like i'm driving a rally car on J Anand's
Should be stiff and comfortable enough, like how we say "Best of both world's!"
