It was first service so service cost was obviously 0. The tray alone doesn't cost 7k altogether. The side panels of trunk are replaced which cost nearly 2k each (lhs and rhs). Tray individually cost around 3k.

This looks so cheap and good service for you especially since all these inside panels are replaced and final cost is 7k which means they didn’t take any service charges? Since it is not part of first service ideally they could have added service charges to you ( if they want to ) I guess

Received this message from KIA India today. The dealerships will remain closed and hence, Kia is extending the free services' period by 2 months. A good gesture and this should take care of warranty concerns for owners whose services were due in the upcoming days.

Soooo tempted to get my diesel remapped. With a 20% boost in power, it should take it up to a decent 135-140 bhp not to mention all that juicy torque.

There is no 1.4 TDI configuration.

It is either 1.5D or 1.5P or 1.4T-GDI (Turbocharged). I guess you meant the 1.4-T-GDI, right?

Yes I meant TGDI only in Creta!! I just wanted to know if some one already has any feedback on its driving and handling compared to Seltos 1.4TGDI especially since the engine is exactly same on both cars

Has anybody got door damping done to their seltos with bose sound system? While the sound quality in my Seltos gtx+ dct is ok, it still doesn't have the oomph which one would expect from it. Am wondering if damping would make a difference to the sound quality. Also, what about fitting an underseat sub? Not sure if any of these modifications will lead to warranty issues.
