Default Finally...!! i GETZ it

Hello TBHPians,as my thread says "Finally...!! i GETZ it" i bought the Hyundai Getz 1.3L GLS,on diwali 9th november.After going thru alot of members rewiews,and continous PM's with some of our gurus here who are always ready to help and solve the queries i zeroed upon the getz.

Car Dealer: Shreenath Hyundai
Car:Hyundai Getz 1.3L GLS
Colour - Noble White
Costing:Rs.5,39,936/- On road (mumbai)
Insurance:New India Insurance Company
Freebies: Range 1 autocop keyless entry

Well,we had gone to see the car with my family,I asked them for a TD on the 1.3L they somehow managed to get the 1.3GLX for the TD(after waiting 20mins)i had already Test driven the 1.1L so found the 1.3L more peppier and smoother and with alot of goodies and detailings.My family and me both liked the car and we booked it,the waiting period was told about 3-4weeks but i got the car in 15days.No issues/hassels from the dealer.They were very friendly and prompt service.

About the Car:

The car is very smooth to drive good looks,the buttery gear shifting,SOHC engine very silent,and as everyone knows its spacious.The driving is very comfortable,and main benifit is the steering wheel adjustment,a hand-rest for the gear shift,ample of boot space.

I havnt driven the car much so really cant make out any drawbacks on my decision,and yes the interior quality is a bit low in certain areas,like the folds,joints in the consoles aren't that perfect.Otherwise the fit and finish is really good and neat.

The car has done about 106km in a Rs.1000/- fuel leaving quarter tank,so could not calculate as how much FE i am getting.(suerly will post once i find out)

Upgrades done:
15"inch League Alloys
Yokohama S-Drive Tyres 195/50/R15 (filled with Nitrogen)
Wheel Balancing(Total: Rs.23,400/-)
ART leather Fixed Type Seat covers. (Total Rs.8500/-)
Transparent Floor Mats (Rs.350)
V-cool 35% Transparency Film (greenish-grey tint) (Rs.2200)
B-pillars Blackened (Rs.150)
Perfume Bottle (Free)

Upgrades to come:
I.C.E.
Conical Filters or Stock replacement Filters
Under-body Neons/Strobes
Blackened Tail-lights
H.I.D. kit
Blackened Bonet
Body-kit/Mesh Grille
Teflon coating
Shift Light
Some Graphics

Here are few pics i would like to share:







Cheers..!!!
Ramie

Mods please shift to the appropriate thread if i have posted on the wrong thread

Yokohama S-Drive Tyres 195/50/R15 (filled with Nitrogen)
Isnt the right upsize 195/60/R15s? or is just for the swift?

Thanks guys for your response,I guess hardly its 12-15k overpriced which is negligible when it comes to comparison,driveblity and comfort.

@Humyum 195/50/R15 is the perfect upsize for getz have recommended some of our gurus on the forum before going ahead,and trust me the ride is just superb and very comfortable,even on bad roads.

@ramie2400

Welcome to the Family
I bought the same car 2 months ago - got my first service done on Thursday at around 1010km. Took her out for a long drive (500km) on Saturday.
Squeezed nearly 17kmpl (25% a/c) out of her. Normal city driving usually gives me around 12.5.

You have a great car - good choice and welcome !!!

Ravi
