The stock postioning of the fabia's OE slots for speakers is crappy with the rear slots being obscured by the rear seat when the rear doors are closed.

okay the swifts are cool agreed and they are new too, but samji, dont you think the srv chevy in right color will be a eye candy i mean later on when ever you want to get the next promotional car, its a sports hatch, after palio and stile it surely looks hot and juicy so just thought would be nice to have this jbllifyed srv than the fabia and others!
like the swift this car too has the performance outlook to it doesnt it?

i atleast recently after seeing the car lately, kind of started to like it! the rear looks cool i mean the lights!

Drive it. I am not an engine vengine nut but when I drove it (courtesy of Bharthi Motors on the Western Express Highway) the car felt lethargic. If revved hard it did move but then engine noise obliterated the ICE.

It has a rubbish engine and an even more rubbish gearbox. The only way to salvage the SRV is to put the magnum engine and drivetrain into it.

who is talking about the petrol version, wait for the diesel version its going to be awesome and will surely rock!

remember i am more biased to wards diesels these days! as they make over all better cars, be it engine's performance mods(just one 10 minute pete box fixing), be it maintainance(costs same or lower), be it great mileage and finally resale!cheers:

well just hold on till the diesel launches, the car even handles better than most of the sedans in the same range too!, looks awesome and will let the jbl's racy image they have created with swifts be the way they are!
