pras.oct25: Regarding the painting for your bumper, IMHO it is not worthwhile claiming Insurance for such a small expense since you would lose money on the NCB (No Claim Bonus) that is applicable in the coming years. I suggest you go to a good workshop equipped with a Paint Booth and am sure a complete bumper painting would not cost 50% ~ 60% the cost of what has been quoted by HMP to you.

Regarding the H/L Bulbs would advice you to try the Philips extreme vision 60/55w rating and get the headlight focussed as per your requirement. My advice is not to go for the 130/100w with relays for if you check the following post this is what it did to my other car (a Santro) http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...tml#post905418

Wishing you many many miles of happy motoring, from a happy Verna owner.

thanks suren! but will the 60w bulbs be effective for night driving on highways or should i go for the 100w with the entire relay setup changed?
wouldnt going for a paint job outside hmp cause any issues later (im not sure what kind), but how safe is it to have the car worked on outside the dealership when its still under the warranty period?

nice pics - which is the red swift? For a moment it got me confused!

The scratches require full bumper painting.

hey i have no idea where that swift came from! i think someone has uploaded it into my thing? is that even possible?

i went to xenos galleria today. he quoted 5500 for double colour seat covers and 2500 for doing the mats etc for the car floor. alloy wheels were 17k (just for rims, tyres additional) - a brand called glitz. he offered to paint the bumper through another shop that he is associated with at a low price (not sure how much yet). should i take the offer? he guaranteed that the colour will match showroom colour.

I have a Real Earth Verna SX as well... Now 4 months old and done 4k kilometers... Have a scratch as well, but I am trying to ignore it... They will happen on Indian roads no matter how hard you try...

If the paint guy has a paint booth and uses Du-Pont then he can manage color matching. Be sure he does his homework regarding the correct Real Earth Shade (AFAIK there are multiple Real Earth shades in the market and vendors)

Do not even try the com-paint if you are first timer... Unless you want to try first and then come to terms with the bumper painting job!

All the best for the new ride! Have a joyous Verna experience!

well yeah he said that since they install the xenos reverse sensors on the car rear they have the perfect colour to be able to paint over it when they install it. so will find out from him sometime soon

if you go to your workshop and ask them to use some rubbing on the bumper, a major share of marks will go away. do that first and then think about painting the bumper.

^^ Perfect suggestion.
Rubbing compound should remove most of the black marks.

Pras - I have the exact same Verna and I too faced the pulling to the left issue - and IMHO - It does not have to do with the torque steer. Its an alingment problem which can be resolved by the Hyundai *** people.

Regarding the upgrade - again - You do not really need it at this point of time unless you have an excess of Vitamin M! . The tyres with the ABS version are of the 185 tread and is more than sufficient for the car. Just ensure that you have 33 PSI pressure on all four wheels and you will be just fine.

Regarding the bumper repainting, the Kun Hyundai guys at Ambattur are really good with it. Why don't you get it checked. And yes - you can get two different quotes - one - if you getting it doen through insurance and two - if you are paying for it yourself. The former is always expensive as it gives the *** an opportunity to get some extra bucks.

Regarding the headlight upgrade, ask at your Hyundai *** for options - that would be the safest bet and to my knowledge it should not void the warranty as well. I got mine changed from the dealership - however I am still unhappy with the visibility when it rains - however being in Chennai - that should not be too much of a problem.
