  1. Spark have turbo here but with Diesel engine, not for gas. I am not sure if that can help you some way. Just to add, GM have shut their shop for domestic sell so getting direct from GM may be difficult. P.S. Spark was sold as Chevrolet Beat in India.
  2. Great work Aviran. I don't know why they made 4x6 grill, possibly this is most difficult to get same, atleast here in India. I can see Kicker and good brand 4x6 now available on Amazon but very costly due to high import duty. I too got stuck with this 4x6 speaker grill. 1st owner put 6inch speaker and electrician did horrible job. The rubber ring is pushing against frame and apparently both speaker are gone now. I tried with some paper stencil but not getting proper results. Do you have its 3D design image, if you can share? I don't have 3D printer, so will get it done on wood.
  3. I am not using Android auto as now a days driving very less. But with my Bluetooth headphones I frequently using OK Google Service. I have noticed that after google have launched the Google assistant (more formal OK Google Service) this problem is increased many folds. Didn't find any proper solution but when it occurs I just wait for some seconds and try again. One thing you can try for the app permission for contacts etc. And possibly if you have changed some privacy settings in main Google account.
  4. And neither our subject matter experts!! I respect to you guys, especially Bobby Msme and Retired old gearhead who brought us million of miles experience through the forum.
  5. He he.. this is possibly, magical wording reply each owner of production car wants to listen.
  6. Update - Ok, so finally last week tried clearing the fault code and these not returned after that. Another thing noticed, 2 days back battery was out of juice, reason, it was sitting idle for last 2 months, although I keep engine running for 5 min in every 7-10days. Just a doubt, if low voltage from battery can generate such codes, as a side effect.
  7. Hi, After my recent cleanup, I put it on idling as I am not driving it much. Just plugged OBD2 adaptor and this time it gave 2 error code (1st time in 3 yrs). P0132, P0138 - O2 sensor high voltage (sensor1 &2). I am worried as I am not good with engine and transmission part. Just to add, for last 2 -3 weeks when I idle it, it smell like gas for while and when I checked in bonnet nothing found or smelled. Can someone suggest me what to do next? And if, this is minor or major issue?
  8. I have 2010 LS 1.2L and I driven it fully occupied (3 adult, 2kid and bags in trunk, ~300kg) for 500-550km without issue so looking at your 1.4L engine it must be able to handle. Suspensions & tyres could be a thing. Since all load be in trunk so rear tyre could be touching the well area or gap will be less. Option, put some bag in rear seat area.
  9. This could be a perfect answer to GM/other car dealer who says any modifications outside will void warranty. (This is specially for India, my chevy service advisor marked LED bulb I fitted in parking lamp. Another one, when I went to buy VW Polo, they said aftermarket remote lock in base variant will void warranty).
  10. Confirm with them, if they have installed the GM accessories/optional part. Since GM must have covering GMA parts as well. Unlessthat's could be a complicated one.
  11. Only option, I can see, is to tap the speaker wire and connect to the sub. If you want to retain OEM head unit.
  12. Hi, anyone tried taking steering wheel out? I have some plan with the mentioned space on wheel. I am not afraid of airbag, as I don't have one. BTW mine is Chevy Spark (Beat in India) 2010 LS, also known as matiz creative.

  14. Hi, I guess your spark too have antenna on front roof. Can you share some pics of shark fin you added, I am little concerned about look of shark fin on front roof? And also, how's reception after replacing it, since bigger antenna have better reception? Actually, I want to replace my whip type antenna with internal one but found no dummy piece which can cover the hole in roof so thinking to put a shark fin antenna.
  15. Hi, I am having a old model and not sure if you're asking for inside or outside handle liner. Since it holds when stretched so you can try putting double sided foam tape suitably thick to fill the gap. As I remember, mine have fixed moulded handle inside to pull down the hatch.
