Thumbs up How did you get hold of one?

How did you manage to book? I've checked with all dealers in Pune and everyone of them say that production has been stopped and I cannot get it.
One of them is trying to convert it into a i20, but I feel that it's too expensive.

Lucky you, I so wanted that car.
Congrats and Drive safe.

glad to know that the rocket is still available, I heard they have stopped taking orders for the car and guess they (Dealers, Hyundai) are clearing off all the stock they have or is it still available to book???.

I suppose you can also check RD ECU along with Pete's. Make sure u get the alloys with the right PCD else you will face problems.

There is no bloody room for strut bars or braces in the front, please get the body color painting for the ORVM and the handle doen outside Hyundai charge a lot for this, or see if you can get it done as a freebee, dont forget the antirust underbody coat too.

You could book a GETZ CRDI???.

The dealers in bangalore told me that they have stopped taking orders.

Cochin dealers said they will take orders but price is back to 5.45 lakhs ex-showroom. How come you have booked for the 4.99 lakhs offer?

Congrats on the rocket!
I am looking for a tyre which should not lock when braked hard at the speeds at 170+ so i guess nothing can beat Advan neovas to that.

I am transferring mp3 player from my elantra to this so ICE is done.
Seat covers - yes i need to think of it.
Body Colored Bumpers & RVMs - I guess bumpers are fine as there is just one small strip of black plastic.
For RVMs i want to keep it black due to the frequent hit by those stupid bikers in bangalore traffic.

Personally i know many people in hyundai so it was not a problem. Internal information is that there are still 200-300 cars for the whole india.

You are Absolutly right my friend.

- Installing verna sx wood panel - How do u plan to get this done ?
Dealer told that its possible and will charge 1750 for it but lets see how it goes, Will let u know once done.

- Strut bar - Let me know, I'm also interested.
Let me check with my bangalore tuners and will definitely update you.

- Rotors? - Not available in India.
Some of bangy getzies are planning to make mass orders to very well know guy so that he will get the stock rotors drilled in UK, lets see how it goes.

love the way it brakes in karthik kumar swift.

What about a bigger intercooler ?? I'm checking the i20 intercooler for compatability
Once the car is delivered will work on those things.

I heard peter is doing some mind blowing mods to i20... we just have to copy it.
