Sorry for the long story, but this is what happened and my house is just 100Mtrs from Advaith Service center. Still I will never take my i20 there...
We must be neighbors then. I'm in Jayanagar 9th Block, very close to the mini-forest. I also live very close to Advaith S.C, but given what you have experienced, I'll happily stick to Trident A.S.S.

Thanks for the info.

your car looks great in that colour, looks even better compared to white.. 15 inchers would have really bumped up the wow factor of your car..
anyways enjoy the car

Congrats ! Nice wheels and nice colour for the car as well !! Your car looks 'stealth' Here's wishing you many years of happy motoring !

I also want to know the city driving dynamics of the CRDi. Please share when you can.

It is for the set of 5. BTW, I think it is fine to upgrade i20 wheels to 15'. In 15' you will have larger set of choices to pick from. Infact the i20's sold in europe are supposedly with 15'alloys. So better check that...

Not sure on idling after long distance drive? Is idling done to warm up and uniformly run the motor before changing its speed? Pls. clarify

Hey Dash.
I guess i saw your car parked in the PTP car parking today.
I could identify the car because of the Lenso PL alloys.
If that's your car, then let me know we will meet up sometime, im also based out of PTP only, otherwise please ignore might be someone else's car.

Cheers

Hey Dash, I saw your ride as well last weekend or atleast seemed that way in J.P nagar. I remember this coz of those "Honda" type Alloys and the unmistakable "CRDI" badge!! I did not realize that this was actually one of the fellow bhpian's ride!!

Schoudhury, please let me know in case you guys plan to meet up sometime. Would be glad to meet you guys.

Hey thanks a lot for the info on Advaith S.C. Had plans for an i20 from Advaith. Now I think its better if I go with Trident. Kanakpura trident will be a bit of a journey from my place as compared to JP nagar Advaith, but bit of a trouble now will ensure enough peace in future.

Btw even I stay pretty close to JP nagar Advaith. Will keep an eye out for your i20

The top trim in europe version has 16" wheels, so 15" will not be a problem
