The suspension was a bit stiff compared to the vista QJD.

So now it either the vista QJD or the Getz CRDI for me... and before that i need to sell of my 3 year old Turbo Indica.
That is great how long was the TD? Did you get to drive on any highway. The stiffer suspension gives better handling.

The TD was for have an hour. Actually since it was a pre delivery car for a customer : i had a mental block not give it a beating ; so drove carefully. We are in a huge industrial plot here in Pune ; but the roads were broad and wide ; well maintained.

And on top of that the dealer has promised a discount of 25 k overall on the Getz

wow i never knew people gave discounts. That is a good bargain samatre. When i asked for discounts here in bangalore none of the dealers gave discounts. They said "SORRY SIR, NO OFFERS ON GETZ CRDI" .
All the best samatre. If you ask me go for it .

Cheers/Shyam

There is a waiting period for about 4 weeks however.

I do not have a second doubt of the superiority of the verna engine inside. It is a killer ! . The only nagging tought in my mind is the 1 lakh overhead above the vista, the seating comfort, and the suspension - which people say is better in the the vista. Also do I really nead such a powerfull car - when most of the time I am stuck up on choked roads (i.e will the power ever be unleashed ??)

Shyam : could you kindly send me some snaps of your car please... That would be very much appreciated..
