Default Jubilant Enpro to take over Aadya group (Audi & Porsche dealer in Mumbai)

Jubilant Enpro is heard to take over the cash strapped operations of Aadya Group (Audi and Porsche dealer in Mumbai).

For months Customers have been suffering with service standards sub-standard to that of a Maruti Dealer and Audi India and Porsche India have been covering up all the acts of the dealer to avoid public perception of continuous disasters in its network.

Inspite of having public complaints of customers cars being driven by staff at night for a joy-ride and being published in Mumbai Mirror with evidence no action was taken on the company.why??? It's clear that VW is now secretly have spoken to Jubilant group to take over these businesses with a large support to avoid another public fiasco which is becoming a routine with this group.

Thats big news and thanks for sharing. I wanted to check with you if it was possible for you to share the source of this information. It will be of some help to a few friends who are working with the Aadya group. Also, if you have anymore finer details on the subject, kindly share.

This good news. The jubilant group is a solid corporate company(dominos pizza being their main business)and they would only improve things at Audi Mumbai west.

They have an Audi dealership in Bangalore already. I have interacted with this dealership in the past, their management was very professional however they have a lot of restrictions on discounting as their parent company is cash rich which helps them maintain their margin and pricing.

Things are only looking up for Audi in Mumbai, even Audi South is soon opening a state of the art workshop Mazgaon. This will be in addition to their Sewri workshop that will not function mainly for body work repairs.

I am glad Kalina Audi has lost its franchise/dealership. These guys are seriously stuck up and old school. They wasted our time and bull shitted us when we were shopping for a Q7. Not surprised they lost it.

I was in talks with the Audi West showroom for the purchase of a Q3 or A4, and they weren't ready to budge on the discounts. Infact the Sales Consultant even cited 2-3momths delivery time for the Q3, which was surprising because Audi has always been known for their discounting.. Finally booked a 320d from Infinity and the Manager was mentioning some dubious activities at Audi West because of which they would be winding up soon. I found that hard to believe because I was aware of the Saffron Party ex-Scion's 'relative' being a big stakeholder in the company. This news though confirms the rumours.
OT: One of our companies is in the process of supplying equipment to M-Square aka Audi South, for their Mazgaon Workshop, and they seem to be a professional bunch headed by an ex Infinity BMW person.

Well I did hear something of this sort a few days ago. I thought it would only be Audi that is given up and not Porsche too. Surprising news though.

I am a bit surprised. Aadaya also runs Apex Honda and since last few years I have received very good sales/service from them. In fact they pulled out some of their better people for Porsche.

Its got 3 partners, one is possibly a diamond trader who you are referring to. The other is the person who owns 4 Seasons Automobiles in Tardeo, and the third is the Ex GM of Infinity BMW.

There has been a lot of change at Audi Mumbai South managment now, the two partners are now out. A senior sales head from Audi Mumbai West has joined them.

Has jubilant taken over Audi Mumbai West? I don't recall any similar appointment as this Porsche one for Audi in the media.
I stayed away from Audi Mumbai West service center due to their management, if the switch over has happened I would rather send my RS5 to them as their workshop is at a much more convenient location for me.
