goswami ji, points taken, all said, palio1.6 is bang for the buck. and even if it costs 1kpl lesser, that means he spends like maybe 500 bucks a month more for performance of a car several lakhs more (in initial purchase and later maint/repairs) - not to mention savings on loan.

Vidushak saab, so are you all smiles with the 1.6 now?

@Vidhushak: You have only posted that you are going ahead with the deal? What are the final terms? When is the delivery? Do you have to pay for the price increase?

AFAIK, neither do you. So what makes the statement more authentic?

Guys, its not a what car thread. He has decided on the car- and its a Palio 1.6!

Final terms remain the same as I have negotiated while making the payment, 4.8 on-road. The so called price rise will not be applicable to me.

The documents would be submitting to Shaman on the morning of Monday for octroi and RTO registration formalities. I will personally do a test drive and PDI on Tuesday. Car will go for registration on Wed and number will arrive following morning.

Exactly a month of long wait, 19 Jun eve would be the delivery of the car. I have my fingers crossed.

Default Took her home

Taken the delivery of the beauty on Thursday.

I was planning to do an extensive PDI using teambhp check list. She was parked outside in the corner and looked stunning. In the morning, did a quick scan and small test drive around Worli sea face due to important meeting lined-up in the afternoon at office. No doubt she is the one you want to take home and spend rest of your life. Everything looks to be in proper order except the odo read 80 km. (Explanation: Car been driven from Panvel godown and for registration at Andheri) Gifted the sales guy with a real expensive pen; he got little embarrassed and seems happy.

Later in the eve after documentation, pooja and tank-fill; started for home @ 7.30 pm. She handled the stop-go traffic with ease. After spending first evening with her, i believe the wait was worth it.

We are going to do a very short trip over weekend visiting my parents. Hope they like her too. More to come later as we get to know each other.

Cheers

Congrats after being so much pained with the dealership experience...It was a right choice in the end however in all i've heard till now....Shaman are quite better than Fortune and Wasan in Mumbai/Navi Mumbai.

Can you please pen down the complete details of your purchase and also what all freebies you got along with it?

Thanks n cheers!~

@vidushak:
Congrats!!!
Now that the bitter part of the FIAT experience is behind you, I guess you should look forward to some real good motoring with the 1.6.
Happy Motoring!!!
