Gemi - the extra money is not going to run away. He will get it back when he sells this car 5 years down the line. Also diesel version gives a FE of 18+ so he will be saving much more. OVER and ABOVE savings the DDIS FUN is PRICELESS.

oh yeah. i love the way diesel swift drives. i am yet to do enough driving to see the average but i am pretty sure it would not disappoint me. i am just waiting for the first 2000KM to get over so that i can take it to its limit. i am currently driving it below 2500 RPM.

Shushubh, Congrats on the second Swift - great VFM car! What color - post some pics.
Sorry to hear about the scratch. That's life!

Now that you have got the car, you may want to request the mods to change the name of the thread to a more appropiate one.

Great buy pal, Congrats man !! You ll love that aero feeling when the turbo actuates at 2000 rpm. Try flooring the accelerator pedal on second gear till around 2000 rpm and you ll love that feeling. I still enjoy it on my VDI even after covering 25k kms Please do post some pics dude.

Are you sure the dealer is not taking you for a ride pal?? i doubt.. If you are really getting a swift VDI ABS in 10 days, please do share the info, how? it will help many people on the forum.

Any way, Red and Silver would look great on a swift other than white. You are lucky if you get it in 10 days.

Get white, dude. Either white, or the drak metallic blue-grey that they have. White looks best, IMO. Slap a gorgeous set of alloys on it, and you're good to go.

A Red with 15" Silver-black alloys is the best IMO.

Or a Blue with Silver-Chrome Alloys

If no alloys, then you are better of with the plain jane colours than the bright ones.
