Gear locks for i10....I am still unable to find "made for i10" gear locks [:(]

Some1 asked for the price difference between Era and Magna and about its worth.

The difference between ERA and MAGNA is around 25K and MAGNA and MAGNA O (without sun roof) is another 76K.
The extras being offered for extra amount being charged are worth each penny( I am feeling this after owning ERA)

Chopra,

I have driven only 300 kms so far with my i10.I am pretty sure that i am getting a mileage hovering around 14-15 with a/c in moderate traffic conditions.Suspension is pretty hard and does ride over the potholes very well.And regarding the Hand Brake issues, i have had no problems at all.My only grouse is that First Gear is not getting engaged smoothly.But this is not always.

When i asked the dealer about the Hand Brake issue,he confirmed me that there was some problems in the initial batch (07 make) of i 10's and not in 08 models,Mine is a 08 model.

Hi Chopra,

I did go through the features list. I am still wondering if Rs. 28K difference between Era and Magna is justified. I've booked Magna yesterday. But having after-thoughts now and wondering if Era will do.

By the way, there's now a corporate discount of Rs. 2000 on i10 effective 3rd April.
