Naah just messing with ya buddy! I know that is a typo there - obviously you meant 10 Lacs. But seriously, sounds like a bargain to me especially if you're able to squeeze a few grand more across the table. Hardly anything going around on the Rapid from what I hear.
HEHEHE!
Secretly wish if they would have offered the Rapid in that Price I would have immidiatel booked atleast 10 Nos. One for me and the rest 9 for all the brothers at TBHP
I wrote it with my mobile hence the mistake
The SA is ready to bargain for a small more on the Accesories part

Please do let us know the dealer name who's handing over such a sweet deal on a very competent vehicle, i'd probably guide my friend towards him !!
Hi Prodigy

I am dealing with Nawab Motors in sector 8. I must say they have been giving me the best *** experience till now. I have test driven the car 4 times(and plan to do twice more) but the SA has no problems whatsoever!
If one of your friends really need to strike a deal, Nows the Time. Two cars could together bargain more than one.
Pm me If you want to proceed

Better value than a Vento, very fairly priced when compared with the Fiesta and Verna etc.
100k discount on a vehicle which is generally selling well, is a good deal indeed.
One of the major things that i consider while buying a Car is It should be Highly Value for Money
Till now the Sunny was proving to be the best bet
But with this 75k discount the window is too narrow and rapid is the immediate choice.
Vento is not considered, have a reservation for its styling

Heard that, Skoda is going to change their pricing effective from Jan 1 2013. Got this info from SA.

The prices are definitely going to come down. because VW cant increase their prices. This has already been extensively discussed in VW thread.

I think, Skoda is going to bring down the prices by 50-60 K for their top end models and around 30-35K for their base models. This is the reason why you are getting 1L discount of which 75K is FLAT.

If i were in your place, i would wait and then act. Because,
=> If Skoda really reduces the prices of their cars, you can pick the latest 2013 model. which will have less depreciation over the next couple of years.
=>Skoda Stockyards, already have 2013 model cars ready. they would go on sale effective from Jan 1/2nd week. so you need not wait long.
=>You might, might probably get a more lucarative deal on 2012 cars in jan 2013 as Skoda cars doesnt sell like hot cakes and there is lot of bad reputation around this brand.

So think and then decide. After all, its a Skoda and this is almost December. Every manufacturer is going to give huge discounts.

OT: You may get a 2L discount on Lineas in december they hardly sell 40 units a month. VW is already giving 70K off. Toyota is giving 30K on etios. so the whole market is running on discounts so why not wait for couple of weeks?
Your Suggestion Well Taken.

But As i have heard from the SE, the prices of all the Cars are supposed to increase soon owning to higher equipment cost, Cant correlate on the downfall of prices. Pus the upcoming diesel tax (though i think it will be only on SUV)
We tend to use the car and sell it to indivisual after that, for whom the condition of car matters a bit more than the Age of an extra month over a year
Plus the benefits at this time of the year on the cost will overall suffice for anything that I may lose out, if I sell it to an authorised second hand car dealer

But if there is still something that I am missing out, Please do quote me

Also, was thinking to scrap Skoda 35k insurance and 12k ext. warranty and go with outside insurance. I got a quote of 22k from Berkshire online.

Would like your suggestions on this. Should I haggle more or bite the bullet?
I would really suggest you to go for the Shield
Apart from the extended warranty, it covers road side assistance as well which can be of great help during an unanticipated breakdown

I am a little surprised by this statement. Do you not think that the Rapid and Vento are extremely similar in styling?
If yes, then, apart from the pricing what other purely styling driven reason can there be to choose the Rapid?
If no, then please highlight back to me what you believe is so much different in the Rapid vis a vis the Vento,
To me both cars look pretty much identical.

Any idea what is the best offer on Scorpio in Bangalore? I have been offered a discount of about 25K on the insurance and nothing more, by SKS on Bannerghatta road. I am looking for the SLE Model. TIA

Hi,
Your query well noted.
Coming to the dissimilarity part, I believe both are mechanically same and they are almost same in their road behavior

But it seems that you've been missing out on comparing the most important part in the car- the front fascia

To me the rapid looks like a handsome sedan from the front and the Vento a bit confused ( completely my opinion)

That's an enough reason for me to go for the rapid
Plus the prism cut in the boot panel looks classy as well

Rest both the cars are quite same

I know, I checked out this offer last night
You have an option to go for this package
Or a complete cash discount of 75k

I sensibly chose the latter

Sahil

Wow, an Ertiga ZDi in 3-4 weeks flat . That would be one of the quickest deliveries of the Ertiga.

Actually, less than three weeks. Breakup is,
Ex showroom price: 875544
Road + other taxes (I am assured I would get govt receipts for this entire amount: 136059).
Zero Depreciation Insurance: ~12K (Carrying along my 50% NCB + insurance quote match with other providers)
Incidental Charges: 6750
4 year / 60K KM extended warranty: 11202

Total: ~1041555/- (exact insurance quote would be known shortly)

I didn't haggle much since I was assured of quick delivery and not the usual 6 months wait. However, they have been very forthcoming and accommodating on all reasonable demands (no accessories package, warranty - left on me but I eventually went with it, insurance - quote match etc). The only thing I didn't want to pay was Incidental Charges but they didn't budge from this and I let it go as well.

BTW, I didn't post to the link you mentioned since there was no "offer" here. Take it, or leave it is the case with such high in demand and high wait list cars.

If they had sold most of the 2012 stock, he wouldn't be calling and telling you about the discount. I believe you should bargain harder, you may even get a higher discount since all the dealers would be pressed hard to consume all/ most of the 2012 stock.

true. but since my dealer is in a town rather than big city, his allotment of cars is less compared to other big dealers. he assured that he will provide extra discount if i confirm my booking. But i got to sell my getz crdi first ..
