    Default Santro modification/upgradation; help!

    Aoa all.. I have a santro prime that i wanted to sale to buy atleast a 1300 but as the prices are too high its not possible now and have to stick to santro.. want to modify my car now for more comfort ( and not for speed/racing/looks etc.)


    I need suggestions.. areas that I feel are problematic in my santro:





    1. Steering; too hard


    2. Rear seats; too uncomfortable


    3. Gear and clutch; too hard


    4. Suspensions; like any 1000 and less car ( except for 'Vitz' ofcourse), too jerky


    5. No power window..





    The progress I have made so far:


    Only Power window installed.. in Rs. 8000. Corolla 88 motors, working fine.


    Suveyed for power steering; costs round 20k for the executive one; 14k for electric power steering of Daihatsu Mira.. need suggestion , which one to go for..


    Took to Hyundai 3s regarding clutch and gear.. Changed clutch cable, no improvement or only a slight one.. He advised to change pressure plate and clutch plate.. How is a 'Value PHC' one as even on 3s they say they are directly importing some Korean clutch and Pressure plates and that they are genuine, its not being manufactured or imported by Deewan directly.. Can it be modified, like some hydraulics applied to it instead of wire..


    Can the Shocks be changed.. or preferably any add on Shocks, not to have off drive or bumpy feel but comfort..


    Any suggestions regarding rear seats ?





    My Santro is prime model; 2007, 50k done..


    Thanks in anticipation.. Saqib.

    2. There is yet another sound from I dont know where when at speeds greater than 80 I press the trottle further.. it occurs on petrol only ( or is probably very slight on CNG)

    I think for all your problems should contact authorized showrooms for repairs and modifications as deemed appropriate. I also have Club and was fortunate enough to avail warranty of two years to the fullest. I got my rear seats replaced, head lights because of fog and indicator and wiper control box on steering under warranty claims which Hyundai honoured. At the moment I ve one case still pending with DEWANS i.e rear speaker rack which got deformed due to sun heat etc. I would again advise u to visit authorised showroom in your city and haqve all the problems sorted out.

    Thank you for your advice.. I really appreciate.. actually I am not really having problem in the sense of things broken or something.. I just want more comfort out of a normally working, not a very comfortable small car ( just like most of 1000 cc cars in stock).. I am otherwise very much satisfied regarding overall performance of the car.. engine power, pick, speed everything is really good ( did have a cultus and an alto in home before, its way ahead of both in terms of engine and esp AC performance). I just want modifications to make it more comfortable, which is not something supported by authorized 3S dealers..
    so basically need expert advice for modifications, which one to go for and how and which one to rather avoid..
