I am as well not a great fan of power steerings, especially on smaller cars. Can easily drive the esteem as well without the PS.

Going OT:
One feels 'disconnected' driving a vehicle with PS.
If at all PS is provided, ensure that there is an auto cut-off mechanism at higher speeds. However, AFAIK, it comes only with Electronic PSs, and EPSs are worse at providing feedback as compared to hydraulic PSs.

Does any car come with an auto cut off Hydraulic PS?

Don't think there's any need for a cutoff in an HPS. The Spark doesn't have the cutoff. Lets not deviate into HPS Vs EPS as there's a thread for that too. :-)

Agreed that the manual steering in the Spark is good but for city driving and especially for women it would make sense to have it.

I am also getting car delivery today. I have checked car accessories prices at dealer and as well as at 2-3 car shops. My finding is that it is always better to but accessories from outside.

On Sony Audio System - First, I also decided Sony but BHPians told me that it is not a good buy. I also went to some shops and compared sound quality of Sony, JVC and Blaupunkt. I found that BHPians experience is right, sony is not good.
I have ordered Clarion from US.

Cheers to all you guys buying/driving Sparky!
Spark's a very good car indeed... drove one in goa for 10 days...but couldnt get myself used to the speedo console in the centre... i guess its the years of conditioning of the normal right side console..!
