maverick030581,
A sweeeeeeet looking car. Just a suggestion. Before you change the alloys all together, how about trying them painted hyper silver or matte black first? That can be lighter on the pocket if results are good. And 4.5 for such a good specimen. Darn! Destiny does seem to have played a role.
cheers

@kb100-Thanks mate,all the best with your search and hope you find a great car soon !

@bharti22shresth - I am not very keen on replacing the OEM alloys anyway,I'll definitely try and see if I can get the alloys painted.Good suggestion.Thanks.

@kailashnj - Wish I could help you out there buddy.I was just too lucky finding the right one on my first try I guess Do check and see if you can get one under the extended 4 years / 80k kms warranty,that really helps in getting a lot of stuff replaced for free.

very well maintained car. Go for bigger tyres with nice alloys. Also post some pics of the interior.

Congrats on the car - please upgrade the footwear from those ZV2Ks asap. Then think about putting a tuning box.

Default Update-Getting some more work done

Update :

Have given the car to the Hyundai service centre again.Getting the water pump,front suspension linkages,bushings and front brake pads replaced.Not really necessary but I'm making full use of the warranty
Water pump and suspension bits will be replaced under warranty.Cost for the rest :
Front Brake pads - 3k approx
Bushing - 800 approx
Total Cost should be around 5k I guess.Small price to pay to feel secure in the knowledge that the car is getting what it deserves and for my peace of mind.

Warranty is till May,I think by that time I'll have replaced the suspension completely It really is a boon.

Cheers
