You need to shift from 2nd to 3rd while accelerating, and from 5th to 4th while decelerating, right? I was thinking of those scenarios.

Wink Guess am the 8th one then

Hi Guys count me in too.. Got myself a Passion Red Getz CRDi this sunday

Been so busy that could not post earlier and also did not want to start a new thread for the same as there are going to be many I guess on this forum atleast.

Well here goes about Red Beetle (thats what I like to call it).. I got it from Hyundai Motor Plaza Delhi on road price 6.1 Lacs. I have upgraded to Michelin Pilot Precedas 195/60/R14 on stock rims and a Pioneer 3090 Headunit alongwith Infinity 6.5'' reference speakers.

Thats all I have folks as of now, will add photos soon.

Btw - Congratulations Kviv for the GetzD - it surely puts a smile on my face each time I drive it

Passion red? You sure like this color right? IIRC, you have a Passion Red Safari

He's using one to pull his Zen & the other to pull his Baleno. Saving on fuel costs you see.

Welcome to the Getz CRDi club @dragonov. Go easy on her during the first 1000kms. How is the ride quality after you changed the tires ?Can you give us the cost of those tires ?

Congrats Dragonov! Welcome to the GetzD club. My GetzD is also Passion Red.
(Hyundai should have thought of a nice acronyme for GetzD, something like GTX...)

I also didn't start new thread for this same reason.

@ undead - Thank you ! Yes I am going easy on her as of now, havent really taken her up even upto 3000RPM and max 70Kph. As of now it has just done 150Kms and yes the ride quality is much better than stock tires, they cost me 3800 a piece.

@vabs78 - Thanks and same pinch ! I agree on the acronyme part, but guess 'CRDi' says it all
