So I took the delivery of the car yesterday as promised by Advaith Hyundai, so props to them for sticking to their timeline. I took along a friend of mine who's well experienced with cars, and he made sure everything was good. The guy at the showroom walked me through all the features and do's & don'ts of the car, even though it was just to cover the bases as I had read almost everything about it here.
Signed the paperwork fairly quickly and was greeted by the staff to fanfare and sweets, which I must say made me feel nice. I rated my experience with them 10/10.
I drove the car for a bit after that, and I loved it a lot until I actually got onto a trafficy road. Since I'm still a newbie, I have a tendency to stick to the left, which turned out bad cos a bus came too close and scraped some of the paint off of the right ORVM corner. It's hardly noticeable, so I'm not too worried about it. I've already prepared myself for a bunch of scratches and dents, so it's OK. After that incident, I lt my friend drive just to be safe, and also to get his opinion on the car, and he just loved it! He said the car was smooth and a real pleasure to drive and control. He drives a Swift, so it felt great to know that.
After that, I drove it around my neighbourhood, and I love the car too. I'm gonna have to practice with it to get a hang of it, but I'm sure when it's just a matter of time. I'm getting used to the sharp brakes, so my initial fears no longer exist, although I do end up jerking the car due to sudden braking once in a while.
Here are some pics from yesterday. You can see the Hyundai leather seat covers in some of them. They look and feel great, although they only say "i10" on it. Not sure if that's a good thing or bad, as I would've liked to see "Grand i10" instead. Can't complain, as they're free.
EDIT: As for the experience, I'm liking it so far. After adjusting the seat and steering wheel, I feel very comfortable driving it. I love all the little features and luxuries and I'm happy for what I paid for.

Congrats Ankur. :D As far as the Asta variant is concerned, it is possible to unscrew the antenna. I'm not sure about Magna, so I suggest you call your dealer/sales rep and check with him. If not, I'm sure there's something about removing the antenna in the user manual too(it's funny how we never think about it).
