I did not find any issues with AC. It chills quickly.
Also hyderabad heat cannot be compared to bangalore's heat. Here its cool most of the days. So i am feeling AC has adequate cooling.

Looks like your cousin is a spirited driver. Others are getting 13+ in city with AC.

Hey DJ !!!

For your spoiler, try a shop called " India Automotive " which is on JC road. This shop is next to Vemkateshwara Tyres ( Diagonally opposite to old Bharath Talkies ).

This guy stocks almost all the types of spoilers for almost all cars. I had enquired for my swift and the price quoted was Rs.2950 but was ready for 2600 !!! but I was not sure that I was going to keep the car, hence just walked away..

Try your luck for your car in this place..

Call me if you are not able to locate the place..

Good luck..

for getz only the O.E spoiler is of good quality. The after market ones do not match up.

The showroom guys are quoting a cool 8.5K for spoiler which IMO is not worth the money.
IMO 4K is a decent price for Getz spoiler.

8.5K is for spoiler with body paint right?

Yes. Trident hyundai is quoting 8.5K where as advaith is quoting 10.5K.
I dont know why a difference of 2K exists when both are authorized dealers for spares.

Did you check braking from 90KMPH? Any wobbling?
I am not going above 80kmph. According to owners manual we are not supposed to cross 60kmp (1/3 rd of top speed) for first 1000kms.

Braking seemed fine to me. Thursday night I was driving back home at ~80kmph and suddenly encountered a unpainted speed-breaker. I braked pretty hard without much drama. Just some screeching sound from tires.

There are two types of OE spoilers. One is mounted between the roof panels and other for which some drilling is required.

Vaibhav, if i remember correctly, manual tells 3/4 of top speed(~200). So you can comfortably do 100KMPH but try to vary speed as possible.

Now the wobbling issue is gone. Just got rebalancing done yesterday.
Brakes are weak IMO. My chevy spark had more powerful brakes.
Since its a new car and after runin of brakes, i think they should provide enough stopping power.

Are you planning for a spoiler right now?

Good to hear that. So it was a balancing issue then. This breaks a myth that new cars don't need balancing.

I want a spoiler but I didn't like the OE one that much. I wish there was spoiler similar to Palio GTX for GetZ.

I think the guy did not do balancing properly after mounting tires on alloys. I told him to check alignment after balancing and found that it was correct.

Can you post a pic of Palio spoiler?
The petrol getz 1.3 GLX comes with a spoiler which looks very good.

You did not update interior pics. Please do that.
