True, I am tired of hearing Hormazd S going on and on about the Logan to every prospective mid price sedan buyer on the AutoShow

Has BS Motoring really been a Tata-baiter?

They were probably the first mag to praise the Safari. This guy Bijoy was part of the Safari team that took part in a rally from Europe to SE Asia in 1998. Bijoy used to contribute a piece about the rally (and about Safari) every week in BS Weekend whose last page was dedicated to automobiles before BS Motoring was launched.

I did not find BS Motoring good and so did not pay much attention to what it said; hence my question.

While I would not say that they have been Tata baiters, they have been sniggering on the sidelines about the Indica platform in general. Respect has come only in the last 1-1.5 years

Hmm, maybe the mags finally realized that the customers have voted with their feet long back, and its time they joined in!

PS: Do we have even ONE tbhpian/friend of ours who has a Indica DLX with airbags/ABS? Any one?

They have been. They are a magazine that have allowed the personal biases of the top guys to flow over into their professional opinions, as a result of which you see them taking positions by the manufacturer, not by the vehicle. Pity, because they write well.

OT: Tatas were supposed to unveil their New Indigo at Geneva Motor Show. But still no news.

we test drove it some time in third week of feb at 5Pm on a Saturday. we were four in the car. we drove it intentionally below 1500 RPM at speeds of 20-35 KMPH with AC. the route was concorde-nimhans-lalbadh- double road-langford town-military hospital-bannerghatta road-dairy circle-concorde.
it was OK. it pulled easily with AC at that speeds in 3 rd gear.

But i think the roof top insulation is not good. it felt like a cloth below roof. just touch it you can feel the roof . it is totally different in my brothers marina. one can not feel the top. i do not know whether it is specific this model/car. check for this.

that day i guy said no discounts and it was 4.93. now within 15 days it is available for 4.6.( part of this 14K may be due to budget but what about 15 K cash discount offered now + additonal coporate discount also mentioned in papers). this i feel is very bad on the part of TATA

overall it is better than our marina with respect to drivability within city

I think that link is for the overdrive forum. Had seen it couple of days ago.
It's just a member claiming that X1 is under production now. No sources quoted.

Yes. It is from that forum.
His comment was also seconded by another user who said that a new 1.5 NA diesel (I remember a scoop pic by tushky in which the New Indica's dashboard had a small sheet of paper saying 1.5 NA) along with 3 other engines (2 petrol and 1 diesel) will be launched and the dealers would start receiving cars from 3rd week of April.
I searched in Tata Motors' Media release but couldn't find any related article (which is pretty obvious, seeing that they don't comment about future models ). Google didn't help either.
