Have a question - Dzire zdi has ABS with EBD and 185/70-14 tires. If i upgrade tires to say 205/60-14, does EBD work effectively?
195/65-14 would be a better option in 14".

Don't drive the Getz now

will tyre upgradation affect EBD.i don't think so.
I am too inclined towards Dzire Zdi.yet to decide.
ya me too had the same calculation as Tyre,Wheel upgradation
Audio System,Security System totally we need to spend around 60+ K
it'll reach 7L.Better buy is Dzire Zdi.
But waiting period will kill us

In Bangalore, as per my enquiry two days back with Advaith Hyundai, Getz CRDI waiting period is 2 to 2.5 months.
I read in one of the threads that the other dealer Trident Hyundai quoted 6 weeks waiting period.

But waiting is worth for Zdi let's think and decide
Karthik,

I have not yet decided. Still confused

I happened to speak to a Getz D owner in Delhi and he claimed to have done a top speed of 190kmph(speedo).

WOW... Thats a crazy figure bro

So its same as Verna.

Overdrive mentioned top speed to be 155KMPH where as autocar said 171.
I think these magazine-wallas are not testing perfectly.

Maybe they are talking about the Petrol versions, 1.1 and 1.3.

If a car can do 190max then it should be pretty stable at 120-150 range.

Braking of Getz at high speeds in a straight line is just fantastic. I can vouch for that..
I have experience of driving the Getz P at 170kmph and with 13" stock tyres the brake feel was just excellent..

I have tested the Getz D only till 150kmph and it was very stable and the poor corolla couldnt go past it.. ( Around delhi the highways and expressways are pretty straight so can't say much about the handling)
