GDi - Gasoline direct injection with Turbo and intercooler, just use normal petrol which is RON 91, just what the engine needs. The fuel additive`s money can be used to fill more fuel and go for a drive instead

Avoid. If you must try, fill higher octane fuel at the pump and see if it makes a difference.

I've tried higher octane fuel on a Fiat 1.4l Turbo, a Subaru 3l flat six engine and on a 1.7l Mercedes NA engine. All cars may have put out a little more power but I could not feel any difference, or the way the engine felt. Higher RON fuel may help in terms of cleaning some of the engine internals such as the fuel injectors, valve guides etc. Other than that, I doubt if there is any benefit to using them, on cars like your Kia. Stick to regular gas.

Thank you. Dealer says he will get a forecast by first week of February on when I can expect my car. I guess February will also pass by in an agonising wait.

As per local dealers in BLR, the waiting period quoted is anywhere between 12-18 weeks. Check with your dealer which booking date allotment is going on currently, should give you a fair idea of timeline.

Any idea about waiting period for HTK+ D AT in Bangalore? Does it vary as per dealer? Any dealer recommendation other than Epitome motors in the vicinity of Whitefield/ORR?

Recently faced a problem with the AC. While the fans worked fine, the AC stopped working and there was no cooling. Took it to the service station the next day and the mechanic clicked on some buttons on the AC to find error code 18. He said that this was a common problem reported for 2019 manufactured cars and will be fixed within warranty. I had a similar problem with my i20 which was fixed.
Ours is GTX plus 1.4 manufactured in late 2019 and purchased in early 2020
Has anyone faced the same issue?

Somewhere in the range of 12-16 weeks, waiting period slightly less than HTX+ / GTX+ Diesel variants. You can try out JSP, Kadubeesanahalli Outer Ring Road. Can share SA details if you need.

Mine too is a 2019 model. Yes, looks like I had this issue once and it never reoccured. The problem occurred when I switched on the car and the AC was dead as it is, no cooling tried all the buttons, it was just the fan. I tried driving it for a km or so and then switched off the car and then restarted and everything was back to normal. I also mentioned this during my service, and I remember the service folks checking for error codes and it came out that everything was normal.

Does anyone know whether 360 camera can be fit on lower model (HTK+ model to be specific) as an aftermarket accessory? If yes, what would the cost? Will it void any warranty?
