looking forward for a detail review of the entire process
cheers and drive safe!!
Thanks WD! And yes I do like Red but unfortunately in this case I wanted a White car but this was the only shade available. Getting a white one would have meant waiting 1.5 months & that was not acceptable. The process review I'll put up shortly.

Thinking about it, it does make practical sense and looks like you have let your head rule your heart with the buy. It sure is one peppy lil monster with lots of mod potentials for later on.

Sad that the OHC clan is slowly reducing in numbers.
LOL! Thanks SriRam! It's a sensible yet quick choice as the latest pics will show you!

Guys I think, Someone's hacked Ishan's account and have posted a Getz.
Can some doctor on here confirm on here if Ishan has Multiple Personality D?

Nice colour though.

And Congrats. You have a lot of EXPLAINING to do...so i think now is a good time to start.
For explanation please see page 4! And thanks Dan!

OHC couldn't be for life man, after 200k kms I think she had had enough! And it was time for me to move on.

The Getz 1.1 L does not have the 1.1 L logo on the rear - only the 1.3 has it !

I feel this is a Getz CRDi and you are trying to make it look like a wolf in sheep's clothing !!

Come on - out with the actual facts !!
LOL! You caught me man!! For an hour or so I thought that we had done the job too well & maybe nobody will guess about it!

But nice Q car eh??

And I am surprised to see petrol Getz after you having known & driven kpGetz (Getz CRDI owned by kpzen). Have you changed the badges with help of HMP & other contacts? Feels that 1.1L badge has been borrowed from Santro.
Thanks Sukiwa! And your guess was right, it is indeed a 1.1L badge from the Santro!

Anyways congrats for a car with car with H plus Ctrl+I -> H
Thanks Priyank! And no I bought the badges from dealership man!

Wow, nice choice of car, TyreGod.
Have fun on the road with a hot-hatch that is capable of giving even bigger cars a complex.

Come on we didn't expect this from the Tyre bhagwan.
Thanks Vineet! And haven't thought up a name for her yet!

And yes even I'm ashamed to be running on stock rims & tyres but good upgrades coming soon! Patience!

Ha! So you're finally out with it.
After all the fun you had with KP's car, there was no way you would settle with a 1.1.

I don't know much about cars. I know that there is a Getz that has a Verna Diesel engine inside. If this is the case then it will be a bloody fast car.
Now it seems to me that Ishan would get one of those. Then it appears from his first post that he got a Petrol car instead.

OK cool, I thought, he probably has his reasons. Now towards the end I am beginning to see that he has indeed got that powerful diesel version but has put the logos of a petrol car on it so people will think it is less powerful than it actually is.

I have often seen people put powerful logos and numbers on underpowered cars so people will get fooled. Now I see the reverse happening, so people will get fooled.

You guys are all nuts, you know that? Tap, tap tap. I'm outta here.

Oh Ishan, congratulations on the new car! lol

Either ways, that was a quick purchase, and looks like you have taken up long term membership with the Hyundai family.
No Benny, I paid for the badge man!! Thanks! And yeah Hyundai family is good!

If u know of a Getz variant with Verna engine then i must say u know a lot about cars...
If u were trying to be modest then its a different story..

Eh!! Now i gotta run for cover...lol

Damn, I was just going to type that Ishan got the 1.1L CRDi engine for evaluation from hyundai because of his contacts, before being released officially, till he spilled the beans.

NC somehow convinced him to buy 1.1 for FE purpose but Ishan has indeed something up his sleeve. He says this is just a city car and thats why 1.1 is more than enough but actually something else, something big and more powerful is replacing Dhanno.

So just keep your congrats limited to 1.1 instead start bugging him for whats this next big thing!

jokes apart, Congrats. A "sensible" buy, I must say. The Getz is a sheer joy of a car, though I honestly won't say that for the 1.1 engine!
Thanks! Would you say that she's a joy now??

Thanks John! She's a downgrade alright but the best one in the given budget! And MRF's! Sacrilege!!

The Getz is a great hatch. Butttttttttttttttttttttt after the Vtec? Getz CRDi, understandable. But a 1.1

Man, you are growing old or something.

EDIT : Just read some of the comments. I guess I have missed some information in between.

EDIT Part Deux : Woohoo! Common-rail baby! Awesome, congratulations Ishan (notice I didn't congratulate earlier). From a high-revving Honda to a torque-monster crdi. Perfect for the enthusiast in you as well as the high-miler.
