Needless to say she's on her i10 after 4 years of driving a Santro!

Getz, I haven't driven but from the reviews and experiences, bad braking and softly sprung too.
Elantra is ok. But, stock availability?
Yes, Verna is a bad handler, a close friend owns one & I drive it very often. But the I TD'ed a Getz CRDi recently & that has a very nice suspension which is actually pretty reassuring & the steering feel is pretty good too. It needs a set of good rubber, a Pete's box & maybe Pedder's/Hot Bits (if you like) and you're all set to go!

accent viva crdi > run 35K kms till date, looks like 25% -35% tyre life left.

i am expecting these tyres to run not less than 55K kms not more, not more at all.

You have Bridgestone S322 ? If yes, then I have first hand experience with them and they didn't lasted more than 40K, at max 45k.

Depends on where and how you drive. Even i have the same tyres on my viva crdi and i expect them to last upwards of 45K. I am at 21K and they seem almost brand new with deep groves

Also, narayan has done 55K kms on the same tyres.

I had done 76k km on stock tyres on my accent and now they are gone. Now i really need a replacement. I had planned to change them when the car had done 73k km. Now at 76k km they are totally gone. will be heading for new alloys and tyres by tommorrow.

thats a lot of kms for a stock tyre. I never heard somebody do so many kms on the same tyre. your lucky to get a life so long from the same tyres.
