i got 10.xx this around with ac on and off. with ac i think 9 is decent for this. 5500kms on the clock now. starting to open up. i love the car a lot. too much of a attention grabber. kind of like fiat 500. people are facinated by the roof surely. i have had more people ask about this car than anything i have owned in my life. going to start modding it now in parts and bits. from ice to some mild engine mods. i want a K&N filter for my car which one to install stock or conical and what prices /?

Maybe they left out the technology that improves the mileage so that they could pay Mr. SRK his advertising charges :P

Very true mate. I have just got the i10 Asta AT Oyster Grey delivered on last Friday. Took it to office yesterday and almost everyone at the place were staring at my car. Stopped the car for a u turn and people stormed around to check the sunroof and the interiors. I wanted to showed off a bit today, so kept the sunroof open while driving into office.

Nice thread jesal- devoured it all in one go. Was amused to see a statement from you saying you only buy Honda, Toyota, Hyundai - guess that changed when the German lass arrived eh?

I saw a white i10 with great alloys and a young girl with her head and half her body out of the sunroof in Pune couple of weeks ago. Wifey remarked how great it was and I was like - that's dangerous!

My little one loves the concept of a sunroof as well- have put it down in my list for the next car purchase!

Keep posting.
