@caroholic1: That was a great upgrades. Seat goes well along with the interiors. The fit & finish of front armrest was not done properly. How abt ICE & Tire upgrades. Mechilins are the best to buy.

Find the link that would fetch your more accessories for GetZ.

Thanks Faithless_1984, Ramsagar & Vijaythacker.
@Vijaythacker- Im getting a mileage of 10.5kmpl in city conditions & 12kmpl(Approx) on the highway. The car has done 13500Kms on the odo & im very happy with my decision of going for a getz rather than a swift(Petrol). The car is extremely comfortable for my daily use & outstation trips too.

The Getz is a very nice car on the highway. Can go quite fast and can eat up the kms like a gazelle. Even on the FE, my dad has been managing around 14 kmpl on the highway since 2005

@Akadian- My car has done 16,400Kms on the odo i used xtra premium petrol for 16000kms & got a mileage of 12.50kmpl max(without AC) & i recently used the normal petrol & got a mileage of 12.33kmpl, so using Xtra Premium petrol hardly made any difference to the FE.

Default Tyres changed!!!

hi everyone,

After driving the car for 18000Kms on stock tyres (GOODYEAR GPS-II 175/70 R13), i finally decided to get a new set of tyres. The car is now running on YOKOHAMA S-Drive 195/50 R15 using the stock steel rims of the ANHC. Guys the tyres are EXTREMELY grippy, better ride BUT do i feel like the car is a little heavy while driving as compared to the old GOODYEAR GPS-II's.

Nice ride! Love the tail lamps!

Honda wheel caps? They do look better than the stock caps though!

Hey buddy,

Nice looking tail lamps there.

Regarding the tyres how is the ride and handling after changing to 15 inchers. I am quite confused between 14 and 15 inch.

Also if you don't mind can you please tell the cost of the tyres and rims. Did you got anything for your previous tyres ?

Hey caroholic congrats on the new tyres! The ANHC wheelcaps look way better than the stock! and getting 15" tyres was a good decision. Now you can upgrade to alloys whenever possible. After driving your car i think 195/50 is perfect in terms of handling, grip and ride quality.

Congrats again
