HI VMG,

Good to see the red cedia sports pix. How about some pix of dash board and interiors? I also did my first servicing this sat, but yet to do a serious photo session of mine.

Have you considered painting the front grill black?

I have the same model and I changed the color of the front grill to black. It has improved the looks drastically and now the front looks more aggressive and stands out more prominently than before.

Yeah agree with maibaa. Black front grill looks terrific. Originally cedia use to come with black front grill, but with this updated version, HM guys have changed it to body coloured.

I got it done at the cedia dealership in Bangalore for 2K. It may be cheaper if you get it done outside.

I had the choice of going for dull black or metallic jet black. I chose to go with metallic jet black.

I do not have a picture but I will post one soon.

Hi VMG

Good to see ur cedia's pic.

As you have got cedia,,that too sports...and that too in chennai.

I m planning to buy Cedia Sports - with ALPG option in Aussie yellow color.

i m currently having Accent Viva -1.6 DOHC

Points to get from you

- mileage after 1st service
- Howz the interiors when compared with select/spirit
- what u feel about aussie yellow in sports?
- howz the drive inside city traffic(mean bumper to bumper)

This will help me understand things better

1. Since I have done only 50KM after the first service I don't about the milage. I may get 1 to 1.5 km more in city i think.
2. I don't like the wooden finish in select/sprit model. I like the dual finish in sports.
3. I like M-Red but yellow is also good. more unique in our city.
4. City driving is good. I can drive 25km in third gear and 30 in 4th. it is amazing.

Overall, I am very happy with my car. This car can be driven in city as well as outside city where roads are may not be good. I did this and no issues with GC and ride also good.
I have decided Cedia aganist Civic in the last hour. ( becasue of price, GC and suspension problems - lot of reviews about this in this site)

Go for Cedia Sports and enjoy driving.

Deepan, the yellow color is a very good choice. Even I was tempted to go for the yellow. Took a long time to decide on the color before I settled for red.

The pictures in the previous post show my Cedia in red. If you want more pics, I will post some soon.

Good to see Cedizens enjoying. I have done in mine 2000 kms and it looks to me that the FE is improving after first 1000 km. It sure gives me >10 in Chennai's City driving, in the same area as you withint the City as well as a bit of suburb driving, but traffic is the same. it takes about 1 hr from T Nagar to my home at Pallikaranai in the evening around 6 pm (thats peak). And I do most of my driving to office and back. Yet to take mine on highways.
Congratulations again and a warm Welcome to prospective Cedizens...
