Final price is 4.73 L (Model i10 Magna) on road for metallic color in Pune with Octroi.

Is it a good deal?
Pretty much. Anything less than this would not've.
However, don't pay for the stereo, ask them for it free.
Also ask them for free 3m polishing.

I tried hard for the free stereo but not possible. Will ask for 3M polishing now. Thanks for the help mate

Default Price hike for VW Vento diesel from 1st July

Volkswagen to hike Vento diesel variant price by up to Rs 20,317 - The Times of India

So is the rise in input cost for real or VW just trying to cash in on the ever increasing rush for diesel cars? I guess others can be expected to increase prices too.

So how much does a 20K increase in cost increase the time/miles to recover the extra cost?

3M polishing as suggested. Or if no for that then atleast a full car cover.
Seems like a good deal you have got yourself there.
even if you can't squeeze them for more it's quite a sweet deal already.
Take the Bite!
Drive Safe!

Any particular reason for this?

Volkswagen to hike Vento diesel variant price by up to Rs 20,317 - The Times of India

(Apart from the - "rising input costs", of course)

With the petrol prices where they are, sale of diesel cars is/will picking up. Seems like bad timing for the hike.

If there is rise in input costs then that should be the case with petrol model too. VW is trying to cash in on the huge demand of diesel cars now days. On the contrary they are offering schemes like 7 % interest rate for their petrol model which isn't selling well. Not a good move if they are just trying to maximize their profits. If it is due to input costs then other manufacturers also should revise their prices as 20K is a big amount

What are the cancellation charges for Maruti? One of my friend had booked Dezire couple of days ago and paid booking amount of 2 Lakhs. Though I insisted to pay only 10k but he didn't listen. Now due to some unforeseen circumstances, he has to cancel the booking.
I talked to few people in Tata and they said that cancellation charges may go upto 20% of the booking amount .

In Bangalore, cancellation charges for Dezire is ~500 to 1000. not sure about NCR though. However, 20% of 2lacs is not a realistic amount that can be demamnded for cancellation.

When we bought the I10 1.2 Magna in Dec 2010, the car dealer had also told me that insurance is Rs 15K. However, a friend who is an agent for Tata-AIG mentioned to me that the I10 insurance is actually around Rs 9000 and that, the dealers generally inflate the amount. Check out with an Tata-AIG agent to confirm this.

Also, please opt for Zero depreciation package from Tata-AIG (called "Pearl", if I am not mistaken), if possible. In my I10 I had to pay Rs 2000 extra for this, but it is really worth the offer, as nearly all damages not fully covered in the normal insurance is covered under the Zero depreciation package.

The other freebies are quite good. But if possible, push for a cash discount and obtain these accessories from elsewhere. The rates (car seats, filming, etc) are much cheaper at car shops elsewhere in the market.

Also, do check up my I10 thread on sprucing up the I10 on three major fitments not factory-fitted on the I10 Magna. They are:

1. Intermittent wiper switch
2. Luggage lamp
3. Back door close switches

All these three modifications were carried out at the dealer itself and the results have been excellent.

I booked a Ritz Zxi in August 2009 with MSIL dealer "X" (B'lore) by paying 50k booking amount. Found later that MSIL Dealer "Y"'s CEO is a family friend so decided to move booking to Dealer "Y". Dealer "X" returned the entire booking amount with zero deduction.

Don't know if they have started deducting some now.

What I heard that they deduct very nominal charge of Rs 500/1000 against the file charges only.
May be when the dealer had placed an order with company and received vechicle and then customer decides to cancel the booking, then dealer wants to deduct absurd amount of money, but I am not sure though.

Honda is also offering 6.99 % rate interest on Honda Jazz and Honda City for a period of three years. This advertisement is from today's Delhi time’s newspaper though this advertisement was published last month also.

Is this across all models or only the high-end?

And if possible please let me know which dealership?

So that I can directly approach that dealer. I am dealing with one really cunning Sales Rep who wants to outsmart me

Thanks in advance.
