Just did a little research firstly live2drive pointed out that the VGT stciker is missing from the left fender and not the left flank of the boot and secondly are you guys sure that VGT sticker is there on both the fenders?

Yes, the VGT badge is present on both the fenders and not on the boot.

@gourav
Congrats on the great buy! Welcome to the verna crdi club! Just today morning I was thinking that its been a while since I saw a new verna owner on tbhp, and surprise surprise your the new entry!
The new colour looks awesome, and the rear spoiler has always been my favourite. Will mostly get one for my verna too sometime next month if all goes well!
Sad that hyundai doesnt offer a better sound system. I had to get the aux in cable attached separately for a further 100 odd bucks.
Apart from that, and the lousy suspension, it really is a dreamy little car. Any other mods planned? Tires etc?

How much did the spoiler cost you? Any holes drilled to install the same?

I noticed that the VGT badge is missing on the Left Fender. It is supposed to be just above the repeater light. Improper PDI or it might be very well a case of a repainted fender. Do check regarding this with the concerned dealer.
Checked with the dealer, the new Verna only has the badge on one fender only on the right side.

Also yes holes were drilled , two on both sides for installing the rear spoiler.

Check with our brethren in Hyderabad or Bangalore, where it is 13%

Congrats Gourav! Be careful, you've got a monster under the hood. I'm sorry but I did not like the color. But, you did! And that is what matters. Congrats again mate! Enjoy yourself to the fullest.
