You are not alone buddy :( . I'm right there with you.

I dont know if it's only me, but I felt the steering feels more weighted in the CRDI version than the normal 1.3 petrol. Anyone else feels this way?

Greaky, you have an amazing car! Take care and drive safe. Good choice on the tyres too. Only one thing worries me a little. You say the bolts were modified to fit the alloy wheels. Can you elaborate more on this?

Yes, its feels more weighted than the petrol variant and also the Verna. The car is far more planted at high speeds than Verna thanks to the beefed up suspension. Wish it had better brakes and ABS.

Thanks

Yes it does feel heavier than the Petrol version (my friend has a 1.3 GLX)
The bolt I was talking about is the one which holds the spare tyre inside the boot. the dealer extended it for me..which I think was a very nice touch

Hi Greaky,

Stumbled upon this post while searching the forum for Getz.

Am booking my pocket rocket tomm.

I just LOVED the seat covers that you've gotten. I am not a big fan on Art leather / poly vinyl. But really liked your car's covers. They look really NEAT!!

Will try and source something similar for my car. Am getting a white one too

Congrats in advance, I am sure you will enjoy driving it. I can't get rid of the grin on my face even today when i step on the gas

I am planning to post an update soon (15,000 KMS).

Drive safe and enjoy the little monster.
