Sounds interesting, any chance of checking it out?



Mine is '10 model, took delivery in Aug 2010.

So far I find it ok for spirited driving, but you got to play with the gears. Somehow feel the gear does not kick down fast enough for pick up. So usually I need to engage 3rd gear before overtaking.

Engine sound above 3k is harsh very much like Korean cars, below 3k rpm it is on the quieter side.

But does remapping the ECU void the warranty and how does it affect FC?

Currently I am getting between 12.7 to 13.2km/l for mixed driving.

I find the paintwork to be easily chipped by flying pebbles or stones and the Sunlight Copper colour is not forgiving with this regard.

Overall I am satisfied with this car, at the moment done 11k km.

Bigger & much more comfortable than VIOS, more to Civic / Latio / Corolla class.
110BHP is not bad for it's size and quite economical.

So far only normal cost for the routine service, nothing exorbitant.
