It the PPT preso an official preso or something that one of the TBHP members has suggested based on various inputs. The AC knobs are a serious difference between the snaps and the PPT.

The second one is good. That's a nice photoshop work buddy.
Probably you should send this to TATA for them to have a look. I personally feel the ligh colored seats would gets soiled sooner and may look ugly in due course.

The AC knobs are the older looking ones.
I spoke to Amit Sagar from the Marketing office at Tata motors and they confirm that there would be ONLY 4 alloys - the spare would be a steel wheel

Also there is no Bluetooth connectivity in the music system AND NO USB too

When you are looking for VFM - this is what you get ...

I am persisting with the wait though ...

That's funny, bluetooth was present in the 10th aniversay edition, so why drop it?

4 alloys is fine, even the merc and other lux cars do not come with the 5th alloy.

I saw this Vista 1st Anniversary Edition. Its quite expensive! at Rs. 5.80 Lac OTR (Hyderabad) compared to what they are offering.

Interiors looks good with the Tan Leather & Black Dashboard, but I seriously doubt its maintenance. Especially the Ivory Colored Leather Seat Covers, they don't gel with the interiors of the Dashboard & Doors. Plus they are EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to maintain, Brand new vehicle with all the polythene sheets covering those seats still, they were dirty & catching stains very quickly.

Simply TATA's should have maintain the same Black & Tan 2-tone theme for the seats. As suggested by someone here with the Photoshop Images. I think majority will agree to that.

What was SHOCKING to me was missing of Bluetooth Phone connectivity to the same Music System that was on 10th Anniversary Edition.

And as for the AC control Knobs go they are not the new ones as seen in MANZA, but the same old ones.

Over all it didn't appeal to me, mostly coz of those Ivory Colored Leather Seats.

But I should appreciate the quality & feel of the Leather, its quite impressive. Especially the Seats.

I think waiting for the Latest Version "Vista Ignis" expected sometime in Jan'10, most probably to be display at the Auto Expo 2010 at New Delhi. makes sense than going for this Limited Edition.

Addition to Aura it had the ABS & Air Bags.

It got Black & Grey 2-Tone Dashboard with new 4-Spoke Steering with Audio Controls.

Also had the Bluetooth Option on the Music System.

Hope that one doesn't miss out on Alloys.

TATA guys are you listening!!
Bring in at least two new Color Options, current Vista Colors are not at all Vibrant, except the Pearl White which started with the 10th Anniversary Edition.

Default Booked Vista Quadrajet Aura White

Waited for limited version vista and checked it at wasan chembur yesterday (26th oct). My bro didnt like the black dashboard though it was done with the leather thing. What i didnt like is that the audio system didnt have the solt to plug in the USB pen drive. After using that for music in Linea it would be a nightmare for me not having it in vista.
So finally booked the aura version. A weeks time is what wasan claims to deliver the aura white.

Concorde Motors confirmed that USB slot is there in the Limited edition where as the car at Wasan didnt have the slot.

Further can someone clarify as the dealers are also confused regarding the wheel size for the petrol version limited edition, Is it 13" or 14" Alloy.

Is it even possible that the dealers at their end are bringing the default features of the Limited eddition version down and moving part to other cars at an extra cost.

Half the features mentioned at the start of the thread have disapeared. Does anyone have an official brochure of the variant?

I have checked the car for myself. There is no USB pen drive in the music system. I was expecting that and blue and me like feature as well. this was one of the reason i didnt book the limited edition n finalised aura.

Donot trust the showroom sales guys coz they know nothing about the car more than what is there in the brochure/ the 1st page of this thread. I was told by the guy at Wasan, Marine Lines and Concorde guy, Prabhadevi that the car is available with usb as well as the blue and me feature of the punto. The car is yet not available with them and they have no clue when they are going to get the display vehicles.

The rims are 14" on both petrol and diesel btw.

The features promised like blue and me, alloys, leather interiors, etc seemed really very good for a premium of 30k odd and was a bit hard to digest. Finally we have things fall in its place by seeing many of the promised features absent which include even small bits like the manza ac controls.

At this rate we'll soon have a Tata Limited Edition every year! It would lose it's charm if they overdo it.
