@lionheart: Congrats! That's a sexy looking Getz you have there! The alloys and tyres complement it perfectly. And we all know the crdi can MOVE!!
Enjoy your babe, but drive safe... the power this beast generates can be addictive

Am looking forward to seeing the spoiler you choose. Go after-market... the Hyundai one looks very tame!

When you say this, do you mean fitting an ABS aftermarket kit of some sort? Are these available? And if so, reliable?
Or is Hyundai agreeable to retrofitting ABS in your car (I don't think the A.S.S people do this though)? How stupid can they be... offering ABS with the underpowered petrol variant and not even making it optional on the beast in the stable

Right these guys should be kicked for not including abs in the crdi package! Morons!

I was told by the Hyudai sales guy that I could get the ABS and rear discs fitted for another 25K to the OTR price. I suspect this, but would be great if its true.

He also said I coudnt get the rear wash and wiper installed in the car at all. that sounded strange, since the petrol and diesel models share the same body, I presume this is also possible.

Do you really thing budget would be an issue? Else where in the forum I read that the Verna gives 12 to 14 in city when absolutely ripped. That sounds very good mileage to me. I would expect the same from Getz too...

The other Getz CRDi owners on the forum are also quoting good mileage. Lets see what figures you achieve.
