Hey congratulations Arkin , your i10 is looking great in white color. And your HU is looking cool! Yeah please post pictures with the sunfilms and the spoiler!

And regarding laminating the front windshield , even if you don laminate it the glass does not break into pieces injuring the front passengers. Its useful only to cut the rays of the sun and avoid headlight glare of oncoming vehicles.

And finally welcome to the Hyundai family and am sure you will be happy being a part of this family![thumbsup]

@CoolDhaya. Thanks! Now we both are mutual members of the Tata as well as Hyundai families.
@Aman: Thanks. Yes, I color is really catchy. The HU cost me Rs 1500 more than the one I opted for 1st. And it is definitely worth it.
@Raj & Everyone:
Here are the pics. There was some problem in uploading them.

Awesome car man! The pictures are really nice. I am sure, every one in your family will enjoy its smooth ride! Interior finish, as expected, is excellent compared to some of the rivals.

awesome. the colour looks great, the comp mountings looks nice.

i just feel the spoiler should have been without the LED brake lights. Also, an amp is needed for the boston comps.

I think the car is gonna be used by his grand dad , so I assume they may not keep high volume and not much intrested in perfect clarity! so i hope the present set up is fine without a amp! !

Later on when you grow up to drive , get one as raj says!! till then keep busy through the windows!! :tongue::lol!:

Thanks Shynish! Yesh, tge ride is quite enjoyable. And yes, interiors are great too.
Nice car there arkin.Boston comps is a good choice.
Thanks. [:)] I wanted to in for JBL Amps (I don't know about component brands), but Satya at EVO told me he would fit Boston Amps which are way better than JBL
OMG! You are roaming without a registration number. Good keep it up.[clap]
Well, we have got only a temp. KA registration, and will get an AP registration ASAP.

Thanks. The Amp. might be added later. Yeah, now we have 2 brake lights, not one! I'll get the OE one disconnected later.

Yes, Ilango, you're right. Though the car is presently at my disposal, even if I turn up the volume, my grandad gets irritated.

We had not one but 2 accidents[frustration].
The first one was partly my dad's fault. He took a wrong turn, as he got confused while following the GPS instructions. He then got puzzled, and slowed down. An OHC at high speed, over took us, and brushed our front corner end.
The result:

The 2nd accident, in Anantapur:
We were turning into our street from a "main" street which has makeshift road blockers. MY dad had switched on the indicator over 1/2 a minute before turning. Then these rascals on some neolithic bike come out of no where to our left, and "ram" into the door, shortly after braking. We weren't able to put down our windows, as the car had been tinted yesterday. Before we realize what these bumpkins are up to, they lift their bike and zoomed off. Had they tried a few seconds later, I would've got out and stopped them, and get the police to do their job. The L-R door got a dent around 1" long. We will have to shell out for both the repairs as I don't want to lose our NCB. This is the problem in this great place "Anantapur"
People on mobikes and driving these hilarious "Share" autos. Zoom out from anywhere, and the people like us, who follow the rules are at the recieving end.
Sorry if this respresentation of what happened is a bit, er, unprofessional, my regular Win 7 notebook is infected with Virus.

The first dent is more visible. The second one can be noticed only on close inspection.

Arkin just ask them to do touch-up job with paint that is enough! Don waste money changing the entire front bumper and doors. The first thing they will tell is we have to change everything completely which will cost you around 15-20k.

IMO both dents are small.

I won't replace the Bumper and door, come what way, I'll get the cheapest and best tinkering job done. ie- Flatten the bigger dent, paint the scraped parts.
