Congrats on the i20. Cool car, cool alloys and cool color too

I have the younger sibling in the same color and i am sure you will enjoy its ownership. Even i am waiting for the verna engine to be plonked in this car. Then it will rule the roads

This is a good enough reason for prospective i20 owners to have a smile on their face. BTW, how comfortable it would be for a 6' 2" guy, actually my friend was planning to buy a car and he was almost finalized a Palio MJD SDX. But then for his height that car will not fit as he touches the steering wheel even if you push the seat last slot. Palio does not have tilt steering. So he is back to square one. Your comments on i20 to address this issue would be a great help!

Thanks and congratulations for nice looking car, please go ahead and post some interior pictures too

Every morning since the past 4 days, the first thing I do is log in to t-bhp and have a look at your car's pictures! Such an eye candy.

I checked the online tyre size calculator. 195/55 R15 is a perfect upsize over the stock 185/65 R14 with almost 0% change in overall diameter, the final diameter being 596mm for both. You mentioned that the S-drives are noisy. How would you rate them in terms of comfort, handling, steering feel over the stock Apollos? Any issues w.r.t the rear tyres touching the wheel arches?

@roms...other than the noise the tyres are perfect!! the ride (not bumpy at all) and handling has improved, and what it has also done is tightened the steering wheel a bit (i found the steering too loose)..all this is at low speeds (max 80kmph)
dint drive too much with the OE tyres and wheels, swapped it as soon as i got the car! :-)...and no the tyres dont touch the arches even with four adults.

Saw your car in BTP. First thought was, sure this belongs to some BHPian. And right I was.
Also, does your Palio sport a TBHP url sticker on the rear glass? Asking 'cause I dont see that car in the parking lot now-a-days.

Thanks for that feedback anoops. Do give a feedback once you take it at higher speeds and on the twisties . Enjoy your lovely ride.
