GTO mentioned about 10 days back that official review was around 60% complete. It will be out in late December(as per GTO)

In my case, I had visited the stockyard and I could do only inspection from outside. They did not allow me to open the car and check inside.
Don't know if this is the norm everywhere.

The vehicle is going for registration today and in couple of days I should be receiving her.
Yes, I did the complete inspection prior - they did and should allow pre-delivery inspection for the complete vehicle both inside out.

So my querry is, where can I buy KIA module. If I can't will I be able to link KIA app with OBDC devices available on amazon.
Please continue using without module. Kia modules are not available for now, and I don't think it'll work with generic modules available on Amazon. I would advise, please don't take a chance.

The crash results are very impressive. I'm waiting for the actual NCAP ratings. Why can't they rate the cars before releasing them into the market?

I heard somewhere that NCAP tests are done by the organisation on their own. I mean car companies do not provide free cars for that test, they rather buy the cars before tests. Not sure about this. But it seems true as most of the tests were done on the cars under 15 lakhs. Someone please confim.

I guess it is. They are basically governed by many trustees or multiple organizations (charity foundations). Each of these member companies usually sponsor/decide on the car to be tested.

As for my next question, I see the UVO app allows remote unlocking for example. Would I be able to leave my keys in the car and simply use my mobile to unlock the vehicle and start up (with or without the keys in the car) My SA was never able to give a clear answer for this.
Congratulations on the upcoming new car!

The door sills are available as a accessory, I got them. Mudflaps will come pre-installed.

if you leave the key in the car, I am guessing anyone pressing the request sensor can unlock the car.

I received my delivery of ivt last week. Mine is a pearl white colour and am pleased to see that KIAs white shines quite similar to any metallic colour, may be due to the pearl nature of the paint.

Can someone please advice on the paint protection part? KIA is offering protection by Horizon. They say that it is standard in Hyundai group. Seeing old Hyundai cars, am not too impressed with the quality of coat and protection. Haven't found many Cretas to be shining once they are old.

On the contrary, my Red Punto shined even after 10 years, thanks to the paint quality and teflon coat that was applied soon after the delivery.

I don't want to spend upwards of 10-15k. None of the 3M products have appealed to me till now. I am rather confused with the variety.

Thanks so much. Unfortunately the car is going to be delayed by a couple of days due to loan processing (realized too late, that we didn't have enough cheque leaves) Anyways it's scheduled to be picked up next Wednesday, and the time seems to move too slow

Reason I asked about the door sills were, I was a bit partial to a carbon fiber finish on on aliexpress but looks like it is a sticker as opposed to a solid chunk of plastic or metal. Might as well go with the Kia sills on sale by the dealer

Is this price in Bangalore ? Any recommended Michelin dealer near Marthahalli / Bellandur area ?

We upgraded my friends Selto's Diesel GT Plus Goodyear tires, immediately post delivery (Hyderabad). Up-sized to 235/55 R17 ContiSportContact. I guess this is the perfect upgrade, as the diameter difference is 0%. Paid 35K after exchange, in total. Apart from the size & quality upgrade, the load and speed ratings are better than stock too.

The clutch on the manual transmission (diesel) has a bit of a kickback and causes the car to jump ahead. It takes a little getting used to. This is probably what happened to the car that crashed.

The first time I started my car at the time of delivery, I almost bumped into the car in front of me while trying to get it out of a tight parking. But within a few minutes of driving the car I got used to it.

The car that was crashed was an automatic transmission.

The Disk brake Calipers are painted in Red for the front and White for the Rear calipers. Is it a design pattern or something else.

Which color would be ideal for Steel Silver Car with Gun metal color alloys?
