Deccan Honda has been able to provide a slightly better deal.
So i would suggest you speak to them.
A good idea is to pit them against each other.
You take a deal from Crystal Honda.
up it a little, realistically though.
and then you walk into Deccan Honda.
You tell them you have seen the car, and are there only to talk business, tell them that you visited Crystal. and if they offer you a better deal you are going to give the business to them. Do not disclose your Crystal honda deal details till you hear his first offer.
Voila, watch him magically match the offer and then up it a little.
It's almost like a good game of Poker.
~~~
Anyone else can also use this trick.
It does indeed help in getting a better deal.

As far as a better overall deal is considered, we got it from Deccan Honda. What I mean by 'overall deal' is - discounts + accessories. We really wanted some of the accessories that were on offer, so chose Deccan Honda.

As far as pure cash discounts is concerned, we got the best deal from Crystal Honda, who basically said straight 85K discount and no free accessories. This happened towards the end of our negotiations - when we had pretty much finalized on Deccan Honda. When the game was about accessories between the two - Deccan Honda was better.

What we ended up getting from Deccan Honda was a discount of 65K plus a boat load of free accessories. See my post earlier in this thread.

Good luck deal hunting!

That's correct - our deal was through Deccan Honda. We completed our Pre-Registration inspection on Saturday and the car will be delivered on Wednesday.

There are around 3 of us who are trying to crack a deal for the City. Right now Addis Marketing is doing around a 10k better deal than Apex but still not matching alam86's deal. You can pile on if we finally go for it of course provided we can better your deal.

Also, if we go ahead we would do the deal around the end of the month. Thats when the dealers would be the most desperate.

Cheers
If it is going to be 3 of you - you should get a better deal. See the following post in Charthom's thread - some one posted that they were able to get free leather seats and few other accessories along with discounts when they went as a group:

Hey that's tomorrow. Fantastic! wishing you a great delivery experience.
and look forward to an ownership thread soon.

So you managed to get the full 85K cash discount too. That's awesome.
The after sales service at Deccan Honda Pimpri is really good. Be sure to try it out.

August has all of a sudden turned into the month of car launches. With ample amount of vehicles set to be unleashed onto Indian roads, we tend to forget the awesome deals which await us. Volkswagen will launch the new Jetta on the 17 of August. In order to clear stock of the old model, the company is offering a cash discount of upto Rs. 75,000/-.

Man I don't understand why the Bombay dealers are not matching or even coming close to your deal. Max cash discount happening here is around 80K that too including corporate discount.

Anyway lets see how it pans out in the next couple of weeks of August.

The guy called me up. He said no new discounts from Honda for August. The July offers continue. So basically if in Bombay, get around max 80k off with some small accessories.

Cheers

Is that at the dealership on Bundgarden road? I work literally next door, so let me know if you want a photographer or just meet up
I will take the opportunity to check out their accessories price list!

Thank you mdsaab! Yes - tomorrow India time . I am still on Monday night here.

Will surely start an ownership thread. Will be in November though.

About the straight cash discount - yes, we did get that 85K discount from Crystal but with that, no free accessories at all. With what we were getting from Deccan, it seemed like 20K for those accessories was still a better deal because we wanted them. Had we not wanted the accessories, Crystal would have been the better option.

Since we're buying from Deccan, there is no option but to go to the Deccan Pimpri workshop for the first 3 free services. Glad to hear that they are reliable and good.

BTW, the dealer changed the VIN on us on Friday. We did not really complain too much because we got a more recent car [July make] and Dad did the PDI with a cousin, so no red flags.

Yes - this is the one on Bund Garden Road. Unfortunately, I'm not in India and will not be present for the big occasion

Dad will be taking the delivery of the car.

Would love to meet up when I'm back, maybe during one of those Tapri meets. I missed the Vohuman meet - hopefully there's a meet in November sometime.

Sahakar, I think for straight cash, it will be very difficult to get more than 85K. That is the max we were able to get. You are just about 5K off - so try getting some free accessories.

I'm not sure if the corporate discount really ties into the 'best deal' someone can get. I may be wrong about this, but looks like you can get a maximum discount of a 85K for the City - with our without corporate discount. We did not get any corporate discount in our offer.

If you talk about a corporate discount with the dealer, the normal discount will probably be 85K less/minus your corporate discount.

Good luck in August!

Ok, Apex Santacruz was giving me a deal of 10.12 L, i.e. flat 50 grand off on the VMT Exclusive + 5k for Side Step garnish (50% cost), in all 10.17 L.

From what I understood while talking to the dealer is that corporate discount comes from parent Honda. So technically, its a separate incentive above what the dealer is giving and in no way affects the dealer. But as you know dealers worldwide won't miss a trick to get more money out of you.

Just quoting a post from another Yeti thread thought it will be useful for the folks visiting this thread.
Thanks Guderian!

Now what was this all about ?

Called up JMD. Operator put me on a perpetual hold almost before a sales exec with a horrendous put on accent (special for Yeti buyers only) and gave me the details.
For the Ambient the discount comes to Rs. 1L.
OTR - with Thane octroi- with everything thrown in is Rs 17,02,000/-.
This amount was Rs 21 L in Jan 2011 !

Just thought I'll mention it.
