Greaky, a few questions for you!
1) is that a turbo-charged pug?
2) is that the same pug that comes in the vodafone ads?
3) have you tried a pug vs getz crdi drag race yet?
4) Is it not a very photogenic pug? It only seems to be looking in the right direction in one snap. Or is it just shy? ( - totally)
Congrats on your pocket rocket! What a coincidence that I got my pocket rocket with a boot(the verna in case I wasnt clear (once again )) on the same date as you did. Yeah I think that fake wood finish on the verna looks a lot better then the one from the getz, and yes same feeling about the ABS as well. That engine really needs it! I like the seat covers too. Did you get them from hyundai itself? How much did it cost you?
Happy and safe driving!!

Hey greaky,
Congratulations ! Getz CRDi is the only 'hot hatch' in India.

Have a same one bought about 9 months back for Dad, and it is absolutely superb even without the ABS and Airbags. I call it 'White Rocket'

@wood panels - if you get anything better to replace them, do let me know. They desperately need to be changed IMO !

Same for the spoiler - the one's I had seen were not suiting the car. Drop me a PM if you find one !

Car looks great greaky. There has been a rise in the Getz CRDi ownerships in the recent past on the forum. I like white cars and those alloys match the colour perfectly. Any plans for Petes?

BTW you car is nice but your pug is nicer Somehow shes getting more attention than the car itself. You should head to the Pets thread pronto.

Great ride. I have beena fan of Hyundai's all my life.

I have a Santro and more recently bought an Accent.

I did consider buying a Getz, only I found my love the Accent

Congrats on your CRDi GETZ . Its a driver's car.
The seat covers goes well with the interiors. A nice audio setup too.
I agree with you on adding safety features and updating console in GETZ.

Congrats!! The Getz CRDi is a brilliant car. Hyundai should be doing a lot to add value to it. The diesel Getz should have got all those airbags and ABS brakes that they gave to the fully loaded i20. The fake wood on the console looks...er, fake. If you are looking for an OE style spoiler, best buy the real thing. It's going to be expensive, but the cheap imitation ones look cheap or will do so after a few months in the sun.

3) have you tried a pug vs getz crdi drag race yet? - that would only be possible if you get her off the front seat lol
4) Is it not a very photogenic pug? It only seems to be looking in the right direction in one snap. Or is it just shy? ( - totally) - she just knew it too well that this particular photo shoot wasn't for her lol

Thanks ! Of course , personally , I like the front AND the back AND the sides AND everything in between ! I think the problem is the Logan has a boxy butt to begin with.. you add a bigger/wider bumper..beauty goes back to the eyes of the beholder ! Hey but at least I took the plunge

Wiring Set - 800
Fiting - 500
Total : 3,500

and the salesman who sold me the car still maintains that original fog lamps cost 6,500 !! guess you should never believe them

thank god I did not find some ill fitting after market fog lamps after all..

Thats a pretty kewl pug! Maybe hyundai should get it to advertise their cars instead of vodafone. And she sure seems comfy on your front seat. I hope she is toilet trained! Any idea if she has any more distant cousins? I would like to have a pug myself!
I thought kpzen has petefied his getz? I'm not sure if its his car or someone elses. Look around tbhp.
4800 is decent for the seat covers at the dealers. Is it cheaper for hatches? They were quoting some 8k almost for verna seat covers at the dealer here. I got them done outside. Now on the lookout for a spoiler for my car!

congrats mate, white getz surely looks damn good, love to own one, though i hate that fake wood finish on its centre console, but your seat covers makes it look better. As all said this rocket lacks ABS and airbags which shall be atleast given as optional from hyundai.Keep updating and drive safe.CHEERS!!!
