Default SBT Asianet Auto Expo 2013 @ Cochin

Asianet TV is organizing an Auto Expo at Kochi in January 2013. The news is getting flashed through the group's news channel today. This would cover the entire gamut of auto manufacturers, OEM suppliers and other manufacturers of auto accessories and would be held at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium Ground, Kaloor. This is being held jointly with the state Bank of Travancore by Asianet.
This would be an event which the Kochi petrol heads would be looking forward to as an automobile exhibition of this magnitude is happening at Kochi after a gap of several years. There used to be a regular fare of this kind at Kochi earlier, being conducted then regularly by the Cochin Auto Two wheeler Association.

I googled immediately and located the website for the expo.

If it is anywhere near the standards set by Auto two wheeler Association organizes Auto Shows of yesteryears, it ought to be good. But organizing such a show needs lot of efforts.

SBT Asianet Auto Expo 2013-2014

This was much hyped on the internet which made me curious to know what this had in stock for me but i ended up with a bunch of everyday cars and that too a couple of them.South India Largest Auto Expo? On what Basis? What a LIE.
There was some interesting bits too but it lacked content.

Check this out. I had earlier today been there and it is quite good but by no means close to the delhi expo or any other expo.I still can't believe that this is south India's largest expo.

No way you are going to get alloy wheels and electric mirrors on a taxi version. The car shown is ZDi

It looks like a painted (granite grey) bumper to me going by the reflections on the bumper. May be the original bumper got damaged in the last minute and they swapped with whatever was available to put the car on display!

It is certainly a swap from grey Ertiga. Usual black bumper on lower variants can not be this glossy.

Looks like someone tried for a change or replaced against a damage.

That's a ZDI variant with a sloppy paint job.Guess what they said there was no waiting period for any of the ertiga variants.
