Got the reverse sensor issue solved. ( Sensors would beep like an alarm clock every time I engaged the reverse gear)
I went to Hyundai service centre and they told me that one sensor is not working and they quoted 1900rs for sensor and 1500rs labor[roll]
Decided won't give this car to H.a.s.s ever.

Ordered part from boodmo, 15 days passed and no sign of shipping so I cancelled the order.
Went to local car market , got a used white sensor for 280rs which unfortunately didn't work.

Went to local accessories guy, he had a black one and quoted 550rs. Bought it for 300 and paid 400rs labor ( it should have been just 200rs labor but the bad white sensor I got, confused us and we had to do hit and trial method which took time)

So 700rs against H.a.s.s 3400rs.

Pending work - removing rear glass sunfilm. It has gone bad and it's blocking the rear view. Go for Garware brand eyes closed , i feel it's even better than 3M since Garware isn't costly at all. Don't get any other brand.

Logged in to the forum after 4 years. Nice to see you guys still active and updating the thread! [:)]
My 1.6 crdi sx has completed around 140k km and still going strong. Will turn 10 on valentines day in feb. Did a long trip this week and decided to calculate fuel economy. To my surpirse, it used 35 ltr for 872km which comes to 24.9 kmpl! What a gem of a engine.

Thanks will do. The car has been very reliable and has not required any major maintainance. I get it serviced every 10k kms without fail and always use fully synthetic oil. Apart from that, I think the only work carried out was replacing front suspension links around 130k km's and a clutch overhaul which was carried out around 90k km's.
The current continental MC5 205/55/r16 tyres are kinda done and I am not sure what to replace them with. Any recommendations? Was planning to switch to Michelin P4ST although my experience with conti's has been good.

Meanwhile, santro has clocked around 180k km's and also has been very reliable apart from some occasional repairs which are expected for the car this old.
