hmm, i dont think the 1.6 has lost. it has its own charm, just that it doesnt fit my requirements here.

@finneyp:: I know this seems absurd, but can i join the next Palio convoy to Nandi Hills in my UVA?

Maybe i will have to start one hour earlier so that i reach up there along with u guys!

EMD, you seem to peek into PUG!

Well, you are welcome to our Meets if you don't mind being the odd one out!
Then, we can rip your U-VA too!

yup, i already planned to get the K&N air filter fixed on the car. Enquired on phone - it costs about 4.5K it seems.

The sales guy told me i'd get upto 4-5% of better FE and a peppier engine.

i think this is affordable indulgence. Not sure if i should get it done at the dealer itself or outside. Also dont know whether i should get it done rightaway or later (after the first service)

Aha - so you swung the swift diesel way eventually eh my friend? Congrats. I believe there is a Swift Vdi + ABS option too btw... and i also read about this in the swift diesel experience thread....

Btw i especially like the logic u put "its after all a good old FIAT engine".
Have fun mate and thanks again for the 3 TD reports.

Thanks Gemi, Zoom, Finney, Sithon and Radek - congrats to you too..

And thanks to all the others.. Kamy, Geek, Moral and host of others who helped in this.

reg the colour for Spark... if you like red go for it as EMD says the big tail lights get camoflauged. I like the platinum metallic.Even icy blue was nice.

@ Sithon - so I guess I become a bhpian!! Thats cool. Nice forum and as me and EMD were discussing.. the best thing that has happened to us!!

Well watch out for the ownership reviews and stuff..
Hey Nimz, i havent made my decision yet as i have yet to TD the U-va.

and yes - Excellent place to be - this forum.

Hey EMD, so all set to go with K&N already eh? Have a check on this though - i have read that you would lose the warranty and you may want to wait. i'll let some of the T-BHP experts confirm here.

Slightly OT :
To all the blr dudes who were in the Test-driving, discussing and buying scene in these past few months , i say we all should definitely meet up with our vehicles along with others from T-BHP at some meet. Just a thought - lets get this idea going in next month in the meets section.
Oh - of course i need to get my vehicle too ... lol

Congrats to all and Thank you too!. I'm going to post my U-va findings in next few weeks for other potential buyers comparing these cars.

Hey Sithon, I guess you are the only one left to finalize on the Car.

Since now we have Spark, U-VA and Swift D, for variety sake you go for the Palio Stile 1.6!

finneyp. wish it was that easy!

Actually in my heart i want to .. but i will let the TD for U-va make a decision for my head.
But then i think it maybe palio 1.6 retro vs vs U-va or Swift VDI (price for vdi and top end u-va is almost same i believe).

Offtopic:

@ EMD - not too sure about the K&N filter. There are other threads here which talk about the actual benefit of K&N filters and I guess you need to clarify that part about warranty.

I have heard people remove thier K&N when they give it for service and stuff so that the warranty does not become void. Maybe more experienced BHPiand can help out here.

Default OTR in blr for U-VA and Spark?

So EMD and Nimz
When are you getting your vehicles? Hope to see a report in the owners section soon.
Btw, for benefit of all, could you please list the OTR for the U-VA and Spark, (err - for all variants if possible ) and any discounts/freebies that you are getting?
TIA dudes.

No discounts on the UVA and Spark. Selling like hot cakes so no one is really bothered.

Spark LS - 4.23 Lakhs onroad.

Others I need to get home and send it.

What you can alternatively do is gang up with a few like minded ppl and buy together at one dealer. IN that case you may get some discounts.. but again nothing great on these cars as of now. But something is always better than nothing wot say??

Default was it vdi vs u-va LT?

Thanks Nimz, do put in the u-va figures too when u can.
i wish i cud have joined u guys - but i have other (non-car) priorities to take care of at the moment. hmmm....

Hey Sriky - for the basis of this thread discussion, so were your choices finally between the u-va top end and the swift vdi?
I am assuming you went for a diesel finally since the u-va top end was costing around the same as swift vdi...
And yes - i guess the agony is put to rest by the fat aunty diesel eh? .
Enjoy mate.
