Ok I will bite :-) which better VFM cars than petrol Indica ?

Ajay - regards the filter I think it will help performance but gain on a diesel Indica , I dont know if its really worth it?
anywyas I am guessing most people would prolly run in their car and do performance mods a few monhts later....

Ajay:

Tata Concorde will be rigid in offering discounts. The important factor is that check with them whether they offer free pick and delivery of the car for service. We have taken few cars with VST Motors and happy with the dealer.

If you haven't purchased the vehicle yet & wants contact in VST Motors, pls PM me.

Congrats on your purchase k_ajay. I would suggest another accessory. The sump guard is flimsy plastic in both indica and indigo and positioning is such that its easy to hit the power steering assembly on big rocks lying on roads or flying of ffrom the tyres. So get an attachement to the plastic guard made so that it extends half a feet more. It will protect your delicate parts.

Ajay, congrats. Enjoy your car.

Abhay, VFM is not just a matter of a calculator and paper. A lot of value is also in the mind. But yeah, I will take you up on your offer whenever you decide.

Hey guys... Its the new Misty Grey, which is a lghiter version than the 2004 grey... Its sweet and i'll post the pictures soon... Got alloys and rear spoiler on it, and so it looks sweeter... I don't know how many ppl here might wanna agree with me on this, but the Indica with the spoiler and the alloys is quite a looker when u see if from the side profile... Prolly a pic might make some sense... give a perspective of what I'm talking about...

Anyway, I'm liking it and enjoying the car.... thanks for your good wishes folks.....
