Not that expensive. Original PlastiDip is listed 2-3k per can listed on various sites, but the actual price was around 950 MRP in 2013-15 era. Should cost less than Amazon prices if sourced from the original dealers. (Costs less than $10 if someone can send it through). There is Rust-Oleum Automotive Peel Coat, which is around 800-900 per can. DIY sprayable. Mask and spray. Peel off if not satisfactory or change in mind later. Seen many other less known brands at various accessory shops.
@deville_56 - will look out for some dealers for the plasti dip.
The warranty , exhaust issue feel like a never ending task.
PUC got expired and it failed the test when I went Today to get it renewed.
Reason - exhaust leakage. There's no way a petrol car will fail test which is maintained properly.
It's been over a month and I paid 10k for the 5th year warranty 5 days back and they still haven't updated the warranty. When I ask the guy he just says have sent an email to HMIL. That's it.
I sent the failed pollution certificate to the guy handling the matter and clearly told him if I get challaned your service centre will have to pay the challan and if something like this indeed happen I will make sure they pay.
So the process will be something like this. First they will give me the warranty certificate , only after that they will order the part which will take god knows how much time.
Took the car out after so many days, why did I a stone did this today morning.
I called windshield experts and they said it can't be repaired. Will still take the car to them and get it checked in person. Windshield change is not a problem , don't want to waste The garware sunfilm installed.
Warranty issue - service centre did the pollution test and gave me the passed certificate. Part is still on the way, maybe they mad le a fresh order of machines and making a new exhaust just for me will update.
Completed a 1000 km trip last week. The windshield crack stayed the same so I hope there's no need to change the same in the future.
I also saw a sidewall cut on one of the rear tyres , will get it checked.
Now the clutch has started juddering on slopes. Happens very rarely though. The same issue used to happen on my i10 and it constantly increased now let's see what happens in the Elantra. Pathetic parts used by Hyundai.
