Yes, that is the directive lately but Swift's GC is unladen which has been discussed earlier as well in previous pages of this thread. And that's why the doubt. 163 seems pretty less for Bangalore roads

Really? In that case it definitely must be much better than baleno? Yet to check out in person but this sounds encouraging.

And Maruti won't care two hoots as long as it sells like the Dzire.

I guess people are waiting for the Team-Bhp review. It will surely break the silence.

Please help me with these doubts-
1. Bangalore's road tax is 14%. But every dealer and website like carwale/cardekho are showing around 15.5-16% roadtax+registration charges on ex-showroom price. Any information am I missing?
2. Mudflaps and mats are sold as separate accessories, but dealer is forcing me to purchase additional crap like car perfume, tire puncture repair kit etc compulsorily as a package. I asked for only mats n mudflaps, SA denied.
3. I wanted a spoiler that is there in icreate accessories. Dealership has no info about it. Can I install it after receiving the car anytime?
4. I am aware that tbhp community does not recommend teflon coating. Is there any alternate treatment recommend for exterior as well as interior dashboard plastic?

Hopefully will get delivery by this weekend. Fingers crossed.

Interesting. If a Swift could get excitement to 90 basis points then a M Sport should be what?

OT:Why are Auto journalists part of the Swift Advertisement? Is this not a conflict of interest ?

Maybe we need to open a new thread to discuss this advertisement.

There's a 10% surcharge on road tax, so it's 14% + 1.4% = 15.4% for cars costing between 5-10L. Anything above that amount is the dealer padding numbers to make a buck. Verify before paying up.

Spot on! What next? Aadhar-based mind-reading voting machines for elections?

How is this any different from Honda Amaze having the journalists' opinions on their web page?

It's something new that a manufacturer has tried out. No one's stopping BMW or other car makers to do the same.

Its unethical and a clear conflict of interest. That's why the furore. A journalist is supposed to be unbiased and report the facts. Its a different thing that most of the current lot are far from unbiased and are actually not fit to be called journalists, but this blatant plugging for a company takes the cake.
