Its funny how you make statements like the one above without having even driven the Getz CRDi even once. Are you being biased against the product without even having driven it just because you don't like Hyundai?

I'm not saying you will like it but before you dismiss something, isn't it fair to give it one chance to prove itself?

I laughed when I noticed this getz was about to become a classic.
But, then I did realise that this has to become a classic here.
Looking at the Palio 1.6, the City VTEC, it tells me we're a bunch of bhp starved gearheads in this country. And so, anything remotely affordable and has a 3-digit bhp figure is bound to.
Best of it, they've even 'closeout' priced this car at 5.5L.
Still, Will never be my kind of a car.

Oh yes i am running the Petes box. Gotta try the RD ECU once.
Wow! 23 is a great #! I am kinda sedate- I dont floor the throttle, rather push it in with the needles' climb. But the prob is I dont stop pushing unless I see the road coming to an end

In that case I'm happy to make you laugh.
Yes, I did mention I'm biased and I just don't like the brand.

To tell you the truth I don't feel like driving a Getz or any Hyundai for that matter.

I just expressed my views that's all.
I don't really want to do any more Hyuandai bashing.
I just don't like the brand that's all. (Really don't know why)
Is it fair ? I don't know, I think not.
Now, can we move along please.

Rather strong views IMO. BTW, did you know Hyundai has the backing of detroit diesel for their diesel mills?

Oh you rather not, I dont want you to change your mind or view and try to TD one..ha ha

No! We can't take part as the track is booked for this (Sidvin Festival of Speed!)

With that suspension, those cars will eat us for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner and more. Besides you will need a roll cage to take part in one of these events.

Vikram, don't you know Korean cars have crappy suspension ? How can they stand a chance against the Jap counterparts?

Neo, let me figure what plan the boys have first and call either John or Vikram. I doubt we will be able to make it for the races, mostly we would want to drop by and say hi if you guys are meeting up for drinks or something.
