From where are you going to get your new rubber? Please let me know coz my santro also is due for a rubber change.
Did you change your stock speakers?
It's a 155 same as Satro's. They should've given the car with better tyres considering the Kappa makes 16BHP more than the Santro. As you have mentioned build quality is good no rattles and squeaks yet.
Haven't decided where to buy the rubber and which one to buy, haven't decided which alloy to buy either. While upgrading i need alloys with a lower ET so as to increase the track by a wee bit. Rubbers would be Yokos or Michelins if they come in 14" 175 or 185.
No speakers are stock as of now..it's pretty good. Will change them but priority is for tyres and wheels.

Mr. Mallya would be very proud. You appear very contented at your decision to buy the i10 Sportz.

Sankar, are you going to change the tyres anytime soon? Where are you going to source them from? TVM or EKM?

Will not happen soon Srijit. Will take couple of months at the most. Wheels and tyres would be bought from Ekm prolly.

Since the day Maggie started dieting i have been trying to compensate for him. To keep the demand and supply chain balanced... to prevent another economic meltdown.

But no it's not much i can still squeeze into my old jeans hehehe...

You must mean the remote controlled central locking.

Very convenient. Works from a distance. Don't have to search for the keyhole in poorly lit / dark conditions.
