Same quesion here, how did the arm rest fit? is it on cup holders?

And where did you get it fitted? I am looking for similar thing for my Xeta but it seems Pune accessories shops do not have one. Is it specifically designed for i20?

This Arm rest has small cylinder under the visible part, which perfectly fits inside the cup holder and touches to the bottom of cup holder where it has been fixed with four screws. For Arm rest I need to forgo one cup holder.

Thanks Wildon. I agree with you that those seat covers do not have aesthetic value, but as explained earlier I do not wanted to have leather seat covers as it causes sweating (if you are in Delhi or Mumbai where it takes some time to any car aricon to cool the car it really matters). Also, it may be appears bad in photographs but in reality it do not. This is my personal experience and opinion.

No, as mentioned earlier it is universal stuff can be fitted in any car. I am trying to get model name and manufacturer, will provide those details once I get them.

Thanks Ramsagar. If you think of comfort it provides, then you will not find 3K on higher side. Yes, on highway it will be very useful. Infact, it has more utility on highway than in city drive.

Hi JayD,

On 1st page (bottom) I have posted some pics of arm rest and the explained on 2nd page on how it is fitted. Please let me knoe if I am missing anything. Further, any one who wants imported one (from uk) you can check this link Hyundai TeamTorquesteer.co.uk cost has been mentioned as 79 pounds. Yes I was also wanted it (I tried for Santro as well but the space is not enough in Santro to have one) and therefore did bit of research and asked car decor shop mentioning that it is available in UK. One thing I found that this shop guy (in Noida) is more enterprising than one I used to deal with in Mumbai.

Hi all i20 owners,

I don't know somehow I feel bit heavy now compared to when I got the car. I am not sure it may be just psychological, I mentioned it to service guy at the time of 1st service also at the time of free check-up camp but both of them said it's fine. Does anyone have same experience? Can it be because of Nitrogen gas inflated tyres?

One more humble request to all of you for posting updates of your experience with i20(please ignore who has already been done).

Anuj

Anuj, bhidu, congrats on the new purchase. Looking at the thread title, I thought you got an Onida LCD TV free with the i20.
Don't mind but the seat covers are not going thaaaat well with the interiors. My outlook purely.
And the avtaar pic near your handle is simply amazing. Truely Mumbai.

The armrest is a very good installation - but it does leave the car effectively with just one cup holder. And the rear seats lose what is their only bottle holder. I think I will live without the armrest for that reason.

Team-BHP mates.

I am a regular reader of this forum, I get all the information I need here and I took this opportunity to thank each and every one this forum contributors and the hosts.

Congrats! Anuj your car looks great! I am also thinking about joining this i20 owners club, I am looking to CRDi model with 1.4 ltr capacity my doubt is being a diesel engine and more moving components will it be a good option to go for this? as diesel engines have been prone for higher maintenance costs?

I travel daily about 50-60kms and felt the need for a diesel hatch as I live in chennai it will be a better car to handle the space constraints. I would like to go for your suggestions before making my payment.

Also I am planning to go for DSC hyundai chennai...any feedbacks on this dealer please.

Thanks

Thanks Prince. There are no discounts / any thing with i20. Yes, even Wildon didn't liked the seat covers, planning to go for leather seat covers (though I am still skeptical about sweating).

Sawyer, I agree with you hat due to arm rest we left with one cup holder, you are not using another one for ash tray then probably two. In arm rest there is one cup holder for rear passenger (you can not keep Mineral water bottle but Pepsi can or other soft drink bottle). In my case comfort while driving was more important than cup older, I experience the need of arm rest during my both long trips. Its individual preferences and priorities.

Thanks Thehummerguy and welcome to Team BHP. With regards to your query about maintenance cost, the modern diesel engines are very refined and hence do not increase maintenance bill. The old diesel engines use to vibrate lot and hence maintenance cost use to be high not with modern engines. The CRDi is proven technology. Further, JayD has i20 CRDi 1.4 you can ask him also your queries in his thread.My verdict, if I had patience I would had gone for CRDi any day, it has amazing engine.With regards to DCS Hyundai ( I am not from Chennai) I read on Carwale forum one user has faced some issues, please check this link Hyundai i20 Asta User Review : DSC Hyundai Chennai sucks! - A Review on Hyundai i20 Asta by Brian - CarWale.com. But, I will suggest you go to more dealers and then make decision, one persons experience can not be generalised.

Hi All,

Planning for head light upgrade, shall I go for Philips HID kit or Philips X-treme or 100/90 watts? any suggestions?
