Yes, please consider disabling that unlocking feature. I was once seeing this Amazing cops video (or something similar dont remember the exact name) in AXN where a culprit who was being chased by cops ran over to a car which was parked in a signal, threw the guy out and sped away with the car. This happened in the US and the guy was eventually caught but why to take all that risk.

On the FE, 14.5 is real good. More reason to consider the i10.

Now that you pointed out. I feel totally cheated by the dealer for not giving me that feature free

btw, looks like you and me are doing a hop,skip and jump to each other's thread.

Autocop feature that your car is a menace and a risk especially if you have your laptop at the rear of the car and at signals,someone can open the door and walk away with your laptop...So i guess this should be disabled.
Thanks Ram. Yes, it does seems so. I will be double careful about it and will get it disabled soon.

BTW I remember having this auto unlock feature in my automatic camry in US. It used to lock the doors when the gear shift was put in drive mode and used to unlock the doors when switched to park mode. In our manual transmission I think this better be disabled.

that makes sense, because in an automatic, one need not slot the lever in "P" unless its to park the car and get out.

JK, appreciate a lot your thoughtfulness of remembering to click pictures as you promised.

They look absolutely wonderful on a white. I am going to search for a similar pattern out here. Quick couple of q's. Are they stock tyres? Any idea which brand of alloys they are?

Again, thanks a bunch !

Will check that when I go for lunch

Guess since its similar to Santro, 175 should be ideal.

Thanks Aashish, do check this thread over the weekend when some better snaps come up. Current ones are bad as i was in a hurry.

White indeed looks sexy!

Well, the poor lady almost fainted on seeing the .45 and was singing like a parrot and yes, you guessed right the song lyrics were nothing but, complete list of freebies that i listed in my original post

damn i thought hyderabadi people were nice and sober
ok how did u find the space at rear?? Can two elders sit at back comfortably?
also did u ask the dealers when is i20 coming?
Edit: damn good alloys posted by jkdas. I think they will look great on your car. Also go for better tyres if possible. Say hello to michelins and yokos.

What made you think that? I am the nuttiest hyderabadi around and i am proud of that fact

Rear seat space for 2 people especially elders is really nice and they would feel very comfortable and you have a space to rest hands on either side of the door as well. My mom found it quite comfortable.

Didn't ask about i20 since it was not of interest to me.

Upgrading tyres is something we are still contemplating and haven't decided if we will do it or not.

Judging by the time this response was posted, and the other thread on the drink meet at Hyd, I can imagine how sober you were

Venu, i am hardly ever in a sober state

Btw, i was expecting you to walk out of your home and walk into drink meet venue last night. Least you could have done is to open your bedroom window and hollered out a "Hello" to all of us?
