Nice car. Very tasteful choice of rims. If going for graphics try not to make them too loud.

I will go for a FFE after some months let the ride become a little old,currently i am planning for a Body-kit.Momo replica Steering wheel and I.C.E.

@ramzsys i feel the ride is very light and the tyres are soft and less of vibration,even when i take it about 60-80km i guess its because of the the tyres or the tyres inflated with nitrogen.For the first time im my life i am using Upsize with tubless tyres,for suerly it feel great to drive and less of bumps.(Till now)

I am going for a very light kind of graphics,like some good Decals or some minimilastic stripes on the sides especially only at the rear wheel.

I tried Installing this after market Steering Wheel,but my bad luck after the installation my fingers were touching the Light/wiper control switch :( but it was fun riding the car with this and looked really awesome with NOS style Horn press-switch.

Ramie,

Congrats man, I would say Rational buyer would go for Getz over Swift because of good things it has. Smart choice. I am glad you didn't bought into Euphoria of Swift being better,VFW etc etc.

Enjoy and have fun,

I am happy to see your enthu as you have changed steering wheel.

Cool man,,


Cheers
Anju

@ramie2400

Where did you get the steering wheel installed?
Just curious - since it also controls your wiper/light/etc. surely some rewiring was required.. If it wasn't done by Hyundai you have then effectively voided your warranty.. ???

the steering wheel dosent control the wipers etc. when it was installed it was very close to those switches and his hand probably touched them. and no the warranty wouldnt be void.
