Bro my car is around 18 months old, iam running GOOD YEAR eagle F1 tyres they are amazing even the handling has improved, thou i just brought a new verna VGT, the new ones have improved handling already, well i suggest all verna owners upgrade their tyres as they get the car. In my new verna i put 195/60/15 good year tyres i only trust good year tyres, even in my civic i put good year, i have been putting good year since indica days, did try michelin, but those got worn out very early ( too soft ) in my indica

I am not really sure about this but i think Hyundai A.S.S guys use Asian Paints so checking there owuld probably give your better results.

Yep , about the estimate , door painting alone is Rs 2.8k + labour but i had tinkering and then teflon coating to be redone .... so i guess unless you have a bad dent you wouldnt need 6k for repainting.

Bumper repainting is done at Rs 3k at Tirdent A.S.S

Maybe i shoudl check at other A.S.S in Blore befrore getting my ride patched .

I had got my car doors repainted some 5 months back. Had scratches on both the front doors. Took it to Trident, Bangalore who gave me a quote of 12000/-. They claimed that the doors had to be repainted in its entirety.
I eventually got it done in Kotayam Hyundai A.S.S. They claimed the same and had to pay just 6000/-

IMO, such kind of bodywork should always be done outside with reputed bodyshops, unless you have had a bad accident and mechanicals have to be changed along with the paintjob. You will enjoy the cost benefits without compromising on the quality.

Anyways even most A.S.S send it out for the paintjob.

Completly agree with that my friend , i got an estimate of Rs 4500 /- for correction of the dents from good painter who is associated with Pitstop , Bangalore and one part of the work is done today , the tinkering work is over the painting work will be done tomorrow and then i will post pictures for your evaluation. Both dented and corrected ! I saw some of the work he has done and it was nothing short of sterling , could not eveb make out from the OEM finish .. . he does the pianting in a paint booth that he has access to .

If all goes fine my car will be completey dent free at the end of this excercise !

Sajan what updates how did the work go ?

Hey sajands, your review was very helpful. We have booked our Verna SX with ABS, just waiting to take the delivery of the beast soon. But Isn't the 2 din stereo which comes in the SX a Kenwood?

Hey Sridhar,

Congratz on your new car, welcome to the Verna club. Waiting for your review and pics.

I am not sure about that as what i have seen is most of the verna's had a Panasonic double din player.

Regards,
Sajan.

Sajan The SX comes with aKenwood Double Din system for sure and not a Panasonic. The one's you have/had seen could be after market fitments?
