I am safe brother. Was just shaking due to adrenaline rush perhaps? It was at best crawl speed when i had banged against a pole. Just guessing 5 to 10 kmph. Was just taking out from parking when this happened.

Just worried about the build quality. Imagine if it had happened at 40 kmph. The damage could have been significant.

60000 INR seems to be much on the higher side. Did you get the split up of the quote? I hope a huge part of the cost is that of the projector and DRL unit. Still it is only of one side. There is bumper and the fog-lamp socket. The fog lamp is also a projector unit in Verna. So, that also must be costing high.

I haven't felt any jamming in the 14500 kms I have driven the Verna. Mine is a 2019 model.
And, in any speed till 100 kms, the brake works well too. In unanticipated braking also, in any sane speed, it works fine. Rest depends... I required only one sharp braking so far, and it was fine. But the speed was not much anyway.

Even if there is not much speed, it can cause this much damage. It depends, I think, on how much we keep pushing the throttle after the bumper touches the wall. Does it really speak of the build quality? But yes, in Verna, I felt the panels are of "softer" surface.

I have been meaning to try LED headlamps myself but I was too skeptical of removing the headlamp cluster or getting it done via a mechanic. But if it is as simple as a plug and play, I might want to try it too.

Can you share the link for AliExpress?

LED bulbs inside these projectors are absolutely useless. You need to swap those Halogen Projectors for BiLED Projectors. I have done it and the difference is night and day.

Can you share some pictures of the results? Also, how is the swap done? Sounds like tedious process.
Can you share cost for the same?

That is absolutely true. The primary reason for that is the distance of the filament / LED chip from the base ring of the bulb. If the LED chip is at the same distance as the original halogen bulb's filament - the LED output from the same projector will be good.

But generally that isn't the case. The LED chips tend to be at a slightly different position & the projector lenses simply don't focus at that point. Hence the scattered light all over the place.

Yet to take it on a night highway drive - but for now it looks good.
Start-up time seems to have improved after few initial power ups. It turns to full bright probably in 4 seconds.

Hello Verna fraternity,
I've run into a peculiar issue. Every time I press the brakes while going over a bump or a pothole, something seems to be hitting/brushing something underneath. Have no clue what both those 'somethings' are. Happens only when I hit the brake whilst moving over a bump or going through a pothole.

Have any of you experienced this? Is this something I need to be concerned about ?

Happens with me every time i go over a speed breaker or a pothole while braking at the same time, especially when I am braking hard. I thought it must be the front brake assembly that giving the noise. So did not give it much thought since the brakes were working fine after that.

Glad to know I'm not the only one. I had no clue how to explain it to the service center and they couldn't reproduce the noise either. Ironically, it happened again just as I was leaving the service garage

Do you feel pulses from brake pedal? If yes, it is mostly ABS kicking in. Please try and get used to it because both Verna and Creta (IMHO) are finicky while using brakes on broken roads/loose soil.

I found an open ground with loose soil near my home and went there a couple of times to get used to this ABS pulses

Pardon my lack of knowledge but what is an ABS pulse? Is the phenomenon damaging the brake pads in any way?

With my earlier experience with Honda City to the current experience with Hyundai Verna, the number of times that ABS kicking in while breaking is much higher with Verna.

Not sure if you are feeling the ABS kicking in as something brushing over.

You can try this, go on a decent speed and break in slowly vs decent speed and a hard braking. If you don't feel anything odd in the earlier case and the feel of brushing in the later. Then its ABS and it's absolutely normal. Every one of us should have faced this and this is absolutely normal.

Another check that you can do is, check your disk on both the sides to see if there are any marks of friction on it. Sometime if the brake shoe's are completely worn out or about to, they rub hard on the disk and that sometime given your a brushing feel.

Hope this helps.

Looks like a perfect set-up, good output in images!

Can you share the equipment list, how much it cost you and where did you get this installed?

Did you face any issues in installation process?

Cheers
