No paint changes as of now, and i have alredy mentioned about alloys in the previous posts , i would get them but after the music system.
Hyundai people were a blessing , lots of discounts and they didnt push for verna at all.

Congrats bro.

You have taken the best decision.

Accent is the best VFM in the segment, ahead of Ikon, Indica, Vista, Dzire and lot.

In terms of Overall package.

Enjoy the car.

I am doing the runin right now, could you let me know is it ok to touch the 100 km/h mark in runnin period..?
The first priority is a good music system and then i would go for the footwear and dress...

Congrats man. A very nice buy. I see quiet a few new Accent GLE's around here too.

Get a good footwear. It makes the car standout. Looks really good.

Regarding running in try not to take it above 3000 RPM mark. And i think keeping speeds between 80-100 is safe bet during running in.

Default First Addition

Hi team,
Guys last weekend i took my new baby to a shop for audio setup. The name of the shop is "The Sixth Sense" and its in sec:14 , gurgaon. I told the guy that i wanted the best sound in my car but i wont cut any metal for bigger speakers. I had space for 6 inch(circular) in the rear and 6inch in the front doors.
The Guy at the shop recomended JBL for the front and POLK Audio for the rear(both 6 inches). I wanted to go for Blaunpukt however the guy at the shop didnt preferred that and told me that i would have issues playing scratched cds, so i went with his review and agreed to install Pioneer 2190UB.
So this is what i got installed this weekend:
Head Unit: Pioneer 2190UB
Speakers front: Pioneer S612
Speaker Rear: Polk Audio
Got the setup done and went for a drive to feel the music, Guys the performace was not up to the mark and i was not satisfied at all with the setup. The polk audio costing me 4500 for the pair didnt meet my expectaions where the front speakers Pioneer 612 costing me 1400 were much better than POLK.
I would go to the shop on coming weekend and would get the setup changed , Including Head Unit, probably would get SONY or Blaunpunkt.

Hi Ramsagar,
The model is not CNG and neither i would install CNG in future , i hate the way they decrease the performance and life on the engine.
The love costed me around 5 lakhs on road after all the discount i could get , including the mats, mud flaps and steering cover and God idol.

on-road for 5 lakhs, thats a real good deal Garry. When i was looking for a car few months back the ex-showroom was 4.89 or 4.99 lakhs.
