Woowww, 50000 thats a huge amount of money for a car costing 4L. Thats around 8% or so of the car price.

Have you ever noticed that the first few customers who buy the car..(i also gave my valuable feedback on a 6 page questionnaire from TNS Global on Spark) and paved the way for whatever landmark / anniversary hardly get anything..

Yeah, big time!!

Busa - On 4L a 50k discount is 12.5%

Anna Nitrous Smith - I think he got confused between 4L & 50k & posted 8% as 40k is 8% of 5L!!

Actually i meant the cost with registration + Taxes + Insurance + Accesories = 5L, ok that comes out to be 10%, enough of saving myself, sorry for the maths

Default GM dealers bangalore

If there is no catch to this offer, I might go ahead and take this offer. Which GM dealer in Bangalore is better? TVS or Garuda?

I would suggest, wait till Nov first week. We may see some new offers. GM was already giving 35 K discount but seems did not work well, now they added more spice. Spark still look costly even at this price. They should give 15 % discount as minimum.

Aren't they shooting themselves in the foot? Prospective customers buying the car after those dates will know that GM has an approx Rs.50K margin to play with.

Default reduction is in Ex showroom price

the reduction is in Ex showroom price hence there will be proportionate reduction in road tax( huge in south india) and also insurance cost.

I would say go ahead. It is definitely worth the price. The LS was a tad overpriced compared to the Swift LX, but this is no doubt a gooood package.

This is definitely very peppy and quite spacious/comfortable among the cars in its range. Go ahead!

Hmm...ya thinking on same lines...but I somehow like Palio Stile 1.1 top model better at the price they offering with 40k discount. Only thing is that everyone gives negative feedback for its TATA after sales service and parts availability. Otherwise I cant find any car which can compete fiat in term of performance and safety. Really puzzled for this one...

Ya 35k was there but I dont think it was cash discount. Dont know eaxctly.
I was expecting some discount on its UVA model which is also good car but nothing so far from Chevvy....dont know what kind of marketing strategies ...As per me if they reduce UVA price 30k it can become volume sales model for them.
