I've managed a 24k discount from OTR price here in Chennai (for all models) & that too after pulling a few strings at the dealer's end.

Do post a pic of your ride once you get it on hand
OTR here is 4.6chillar, might be lower than TN coz of the low tax. We got 23k discount plus few dealer freebies, that's all.

Jay, the Asta model fully loaded will cost a lot more. If not for the leg space we would've bought the AStar ZXI. All the right goodies and fits in the budget. Plus it handles better too, engine is not bad either with respectable highway top speed figures. Features are important but should fit in budget.

Congrats Sankar on the i10 Kappa. I just happed to read in one of your post that you paid 3900 for the fog lamps. Did you go for the OEM fog lamps or were they after market ones. MGF Hyundai in kottayam quoted me 3K for the fog lamps and Trident Hyundai in bangalore 5K for the same. I was just wondering how could the prices vary in different cities. Please do post some pics of your i10.

Happy Driving !!

Thanks jango. 3900 is what was quoted, and i think it's for the OEM fog lamps but i didn't confirm whether those are OEM since i didn't think they would sell aftermarket foglamps at Hyundai. Do they?

I don't think Hyundai would sell aftermarket fog lamps, they have to be OEM but i do see a difference in price across cities .

Do check the price of the OEM foglamp in bangalore by clicking the link below

Trident Hyundai

Yep there is a huge difference Does tax rates between states make this much of a difference? Let me check out the rate of fog lamps at other Hyundai dealers in KL.

Not sure about the tax factor, BTW MGF, Kottyam quoted me 3K. Now i give you yet another reason to drive your i10 to kottayam from Tvl, get the fog lamp fixed from MGF and fill petrol for the remaining 900 bucks

Congrats Sankara. I definitely see certain hidden signs for the future.

What next? An ultra-dark tint, extra-cushioned rear seats and stiff rear suspension for that lesser bounce ? And a "Horn Broke, Watch For Finger" bumper sticker?

Which brand is that man, the ones i saw here are Lumax? Anyways i'm going to point out to them this difference in price! I'll have to find out Cochin rates too just for comparison.

Congrats on the i10Kappa purchase. It's a nice cute car and perfectly suited for city driving.

AFAIC, Hyundai always provides great customer experience be it while buying the car or while maintaining the same.

Welcome to the club !!!

Time to update this thread. We got our 10 the previous Wednesday

1) There's a decent amount of space inside.
2) AC is pretty good and chills the compartment rather fast (compared to our Previous car which was a Zen Vxi).
3) Engine is sweet.. it loves to revv, peppy and powerful for a small car.
4) Ride is stiffer (compared to a Santro) and bit bouncy at the back on bad roads.
5) Handling is better than a Santro
6) Controls are not too sensitive like in a Santro. I felt the Santro brakes are over servoed.
7) Cabin built quality seems very good and no rattles yet.
8) Skinny OE tyres are confidence draining
9) Integrated Stereo and the 4 speakers sounds much better than i thought!! That's a surprise. I was expecting tinny flat noise but it's way better. Much better.
