Default First service Update and plenty of pics, off course the sunroofs are there.

Finally the car is back from first service. I got the oil and filter changed as advised by the members here. Right now I am back to wife's native[Shimoga], so just a reason to drive you see. I find the car to be smoother now and also sounds a lot better. This time around I maintained a good pace, maintained a pace between 90 to 140, I don't feel any of the light steering issues, I find the straight line stability to be very good, only in the corners I find the car to be lacking in handling. The cars a terrific highway cruiser, a big thumbs up to the engine, the engine at 100+ speeds is very silent.

This time around I kept a warm ThumpsUp bottle in the glove box for cooling, I was pleased to see it cooled, my bro was impressed.

Here are a few pics of the sunroof. Sorry for the horrible composition, it was tough to position the SLR.

This is one thing that I like, the small section in the glove box, I belive Hyundai designed this to keep the car manual.

The glove box is big, here is a snap with three bottles. One 1 litre bottle and the other two are 600 ml bottles.

The car has done 1700+ kms. I will be adding another 300 by tomorrow, as I return back to Bangalore.

Guys how good is the hiker rear view camera? I also read about some rd reverse camera, is it available in Bangalore? Planning to get a rear view camera installed along with the sunfilm.

I have got the 3M sunfilm on the car now. CR70 for the front windshield and CS20 for the sides and back. Total cost was 10,800, I know I paid more but the showroom guy wasnt ready to reduce further, I could have got it done outside for a lot less, but some how I don't trust the outside guys, so did not mind paying the extra bucks, they have done a neat job. The CR70 indeed does help a lot during night driving.

Today drove to Shimoga again, at one point got a feel of the ABS, when I had to brake suddenly from 120+, the cars brakes are just unbelievable, the driver just has to slam the brakes, I could literally feel the ABS at work, as it was trying to avoid the wheel locking.

The car has done 2500+ kms till date.

I have decided to upgrade the pathetic headlights, I have brought the wiring harness with ceramic holders and a pair of Philips Rally 110/100 bulbs. Yet to buy the relay though.

By the way I have got the Auto Locking feature enabled, thanks to Wildon.

Attached are a few pics that I took today, while on the way to Shimogga.

Guys plz dont mind the extra large borders, did not have the patience to reduce it

Hi RBP ,

I really envy you for your i20. Beautiful car. I did wanted to go for that. But the killing difference of price almost 2L higher than my Ritz made me to draw back as well as the seat height was not as high as Ritz. I was a man from Bolero,Indica,Wagon R and to Ritz. So after driving the tall boy and the SUV cars it is difficult to drive the cars like swift and i20. Both are wonderful cars but our habitual mentality did not allow us to go for the sedan.

Cool man, you too have the same beauty but with a diesel heart. You can get the car to auto lock the doors once the speed reaches 40 kph, you can get it done at any Hyundai service center, directly talk to the service manager of the dealer, he should do it for you. I got it done at Sheshadripuram Trident service.

I agree, I too wish the height was a little more.

Sir,

You seem to be enjoying the weekend drives to Shimoga. Hope your bike is not gathering dust.

Nice pictures there. Get the headlight upgrade. Its sort of mandatory for the highway drives.

I always wanted a sun & moon roof- got the Getz CRDi coz for the engine, but your pics are getting me all tempted again

Maybe after 2 or 3 yrs, if Hyundai launches a higher CC CRDi in the i20...

Unfortunately, highways is the only place where I love driving the car, driving in city is a nightmare, always worried as to who is gonna kiss it.

Nothing beats a bike magaa, am still a biker at heart.

Any mech you know, who can do the wiring neatly, i don't want him to cut wires though.

Wish the i20 had come with the 1.6 CRDI that is used in export variants, just think of it, 126 horses and 26 kgm.

Default CRDI with sunroof

@rbp

Great car, great pics and nice writeup. Enjoy the ride. How is the city drive with the turbolag ?

Pardon my ignorance - when do you use the sunroof ?
