they are giving basic acessories like mud flaps, saet covers,car cover, casette stereo free.
Color: Just go by what you and family members like the most. Totally a personal choice

Discounts: Although I dont know the current deals etc on the Stile, I would suggest you bargain for cash discounts instead of the stereo, seat covers etc. You will get them cheaper outside and will get more choice also.

Congrats Dr Aryan,

Another convert to PALIO Club. You will enjoy the european build quality and a big car feel in a small car price. The Palio actually improves the quality of the roads you drive on. There will be occasional service related pangs even with Tatas. however Fiat Spa is coming into India in big way with TATAs next year with Linea Sedan and Grande Punto. So it should only improve. However when u do have such doubts consider the value the Palio gives u.
Only thing I would like to caution you is that most probably it will be phased out next year. In that case Getz 1.1 becomes a better choice.

Some more confusion for you . Cheers

also is it useful to go for top end model for 20 k more with additional features like tachometer,brushed metal ac fabia., 6 speaker(not 4),floor console with coin holder, 2 rear power windows(also),body colored door handles and rear mirrors, rear wiper and washer and defogger, waist line moulding, digital clock!

You have mentioned you will keep the car for 5-7 years. I suggest you Go for the high end one with all bells and whistles that are on offer!! Atleast you wont regret it later. Some accessories like defogger etc cannot be installed at a later stage too. If you dont have budget constraints for another 20K I suggest you take the plunge. To me, Rear wipe/wash and defogger would constitute a 'must have'

Dont go for any cassette players. Decent cd players are available for 4-5K. Ask them to give you a cash discount on cd player (or bargain hard for cd player itself)

Also check among all dealers and do a comparison.

Good luck!

well best way to bargain is take one quotation from one dealer and ask other to match it ( in that u can tell him couple of thousands less ) eg u r getting a deal of 3.85 from one dealer tell other u r getting deal of 3.82 or something
it really works as i just did for my nhc and difference from 1 quotation to last was 29k + accessories list of 9 things
but i would advice ask them for cash and not accessories
and it is better to go for high end coz after some time u will feel sorry for all that things

Dr Ayan,

The model which you are going to buy mostly has everything.

Ask them to fit original palio mud flaps

Insist on carpet mats or else they'll put rubber mats

Ask them for a boot mat (rubber/synthetic)

car perfume

The good discounts might be due to quarter end. But I think they will continue well into the festive season till the end of the year. The best buying time in my opinion will be first week of Jan08 for a december 06 car. You will get fabulous discounts.

A friend of mine got 40 K extra disc on the Santro last year in the same situation.
