The Autolock feature is enabled at the service center and 40kmph is the minimum speed at which the feature can be set. Check the following thread for more information, Hope it helps You

6000kms completed, still going strong! The car has nicely opened up post 5K kms. There is a slight rattle coming from the plastic piece below the MID, have to get it checked.

Btw Here are some pics from one of my recent trips to vagamon.

Wow!! What pics. Amazing quality. IMHO, they look better than the Hyundai ads

What camera are you using? Also, you seem to have a keen photographer's eye. The shots and positioning are v nice indeed.

Thanks! Glad you guys like it. Believe it or not, these pix are taken with my Nokia N82!
@blackasta, they are pseudo HDR's. I couldn't do a proper HDR, since these are phone cam pix.

Wow.. nice pics there JayD. Wagamon looks more tempting than ever in your pictures. Can you please update the FE you have been getting.

Yep! Wagamon is a beautiful place, not commercialized like munnar and ooty.The roads to wagamon are even better!

I've been getting around 14.5 in the city. Highway varies between 17-21.

JayD, what a great narration of your i20 experience.
Thinking of going for an i20 myself and enjoyed going thru all the 11 pages on this thread. Yup, I have a few more questions .
Firstly what fuel are you using normal or high speed.
Second, were you using the a/c also during the FE test.
Third, did the steering give more feedback during high speeds, most elec power steerings have more assist at slow speeds.

I wonder whether a rear spoiler would adversely affect road feel through the steering by putting more on the rear. Slightly wider/stickier tyres could also help I suppose.
I have a Suzuki spoiler on my ZXI Swift tail and Potenza GIIIs on my stock alloys. I have yet to come anywhere close to this combination's max adhesion and braking, including tearing thru the hills and doing 150plus in the rain on the golden quadrilateral and the East Coast Road.

I am using 195/60s as any other size would change the tyre circumference and hence cheat the ABS processor.

195/65s that should read.

Hi tectrac, i use only normal fuel, and never switch off the A/C, unless i'm in some hill station and the sunroof is open!

The steering needs a lil getting use to at high speeds, but within the city its a dream. once you drive it for a few days, u'll have no proplems at high speed either.

The spoilers for these cars have little use other than looks. I was tempted to go for one, but backed off since i'd have to drill holes to mount it.

Thanks p;arth! I have not put any seat covers as o now, but am tempted to go for stanley leather, as these seats are quite hard. I wonder why most new hatches(punto and i20 especially) come with such hard seats!

The only thing which is stopping me from putting the covers is the airbags in the seats, the stanley guy said there is no problem, and cars like VW's mercs which have the same, all have seats done by them. What is your opinion guys?

Welcome to the asta o club sohail! Glad i could inspire one more to get the o variant! Sparkle blue is indeed a lovely colour, the dealer didn't have a car to show us in this colour, so it was ruled out!

P.S: I completely agree, the latest nokia phones have awesome cams!

I too want to put on seat covers, but since the manual clearly states do not put seat covers I have had to back off.

The roadrunner finally got tints, got Garware Dark Natural Ash on the sides and rear. Its dark enough during day, yet light enough for night! In the sun, it has a metallic shade to it. Wanted to get the B pillars blackened, but it was late that day, will do it some other time.

Here are some pix of the car with a friends punto.
