I don't have the choice of Autocop. Dealer said, it is not available atleast for a week. Since it is free, they will always fit whatever is available in stock at that time.

After getting Autocop ATS installed on my i10, within a weeks time it started acting haywire. The alarm used to go on at times when i was driving the car for no reason at all.

Sometimes when i locked the car the indicator lights would start flashing and would go on and on . Finally i had to get the whole setup rechecked with the Hyundai dealer and since then i have not faced any issues till date, touchwood.

Finally I got my car (i10 sportz 1.2 Champagne Gold) yesterday morning around 11 AM after a small pooja.

These are the freebies I got at final....

1) 1st year insurance (Rs. 12,676)
2) 3rd year ext warranty (Rs. 02,500)
3) Corporate Discount (Rs. 01,000)
4) Cash Discount (Rs. 02,586)
5) Remote Locking - Hyundai brand with three buttons
6) Fabric seat cover
7) Anti-rust (will be done at the time of first service)
8) Sun Film - Garware (medium)
9) Car body cover
10) Floor mats & Mud flaps
11) Steering cover
12) Perfume
13) 5 ltrs Petrol voucher

OnRoad after all discounts: Rs. 4,52,000

The ride is good but I feel some bumps at patholes. Gear shift is litter harder (1st and second) but nice to engage with very light click sound. Rest of the things are good.

Since now the climate is cloudy, I couldn't see the winshield reflection on my dashboard as others noted here. I will check later.

Only during the reverse gear, I hear the sound but when I lock or unlock with remote, I couldn't hear any sound. Only the lights are blinking. Should I need to check?

I have taken some snaps at showroom during delivery. I will post them tonight. I am planning to take some snaps when going outside this weekend. I will post them later.

if i am getting it right your remote is in light grey color in rectangular shape. i checked it when i booked my i i10. it has silent feature means just lights blink . push both buttons(lock and unlock) simultaneously and hold it for few seconds this should disable silent thing.

Thumbs up

Congrats Vijay. Time for the snaps to flow in.

You seriously make me feel "J" with the kind of freebies that you managed to pull out from the dealer.

Congrats once again.

Thanks JS. Yes exactly the same one. I will try it.

But is the silent feature not for reverse siren? Because I hear the reverse beeps but not the lock and unlock beeps.

Thanks Jango.

It is all inheritance. I was motivated by Mobike who got a good deal with a list of freebies.

Thanks Jeevan.

For fog lamp, I don't have plan as of now (or it is not required in my area as of now).

For alloys, I am sure to have it but it may be after one year or once after I see a good looking & right price alloys . Currently I stick with 175/70 R13 with 13" alloy after the discussion in some other threads here. I am still doing more info collect on it.

I am back after long time. I clocked 25K with my i10 sportz.

FE update:
18 KMPL during my last ride between Chennai and Trichy with 100% AC on.

I think other i10 owners of this forum might have achieved more than this in high way.

Hey thats an update after more than 2 years! Congrats on crossing the 25k milestone. (Or should I say kilometerstone )

18 KMPL with AC is pretty good. I don't think there will be figures a lot higher than that in real world.

I hope the car is doing very well and you are still fully happy with her.
