Sorry Ajay lol...for bringing it up again.......jale pe namak n all that ;-)

BUt I guess what happens is for the best..(atleast we can say that hehe) maybe 3 yrs down the line you will go for a super TDi hatch ......Skoda Fabia TDi or something.....who knows :-)

Of course you can look at tuning your car too in the future ( I read some thread on teh Mods section abt that !?)

Are Tatas planning to sell both the old indica and the turbo charged one side by side? (Am too lazy to go thro' the entire thread to figure that out).

Turbo is DLX and DLG only i guess. the taxi market will lap up the DLS/DLE/indicab without turbo.

Unfortunately pete's are not interested in tuning Tata cars it seems.
According to them Tata engines are not "reliable" and are not worth the risk.
Wake up pete's, leave "reliability" and "Risk" issues for us the end users to decide. It is too large a market to ignore.

Like tsk said I doubt the cabbies will go for this car (only the G and X variants have turbo)....and anyways they go for the hideous trafic signal rear lights indicab.

If Pete comes up with some power enhancing product for the Indica, i'd lap it up asap if the offer price makes sense for the vehicle....

Pete, are u listening... I got a non-turbo one... Help!!!!!

I have been reading these posts and feel so bad for you Ajay. You had booked a Swift if I remember right.... and than you couldnt wait long enough and went for the Indica. And now to find out that there is a Turbo Indica out there is so heartening.
I give credit to Maruti folks, at least they let you know that a new model is coming and give some discount on the old one (trend followed in launching new esteem and new baleno). Did you get any discount on buying the old Indica?

Hey Aseem... Happens, pal... Yea, i got a corp discount of 14.5k, thanks to someone's influence I could use towards the purchase of my DLS... I know I missed the turbo, but i'm kind of ok with it now... I really wonder if I honestly would be able to make use of that 14or 15 extra bhp in chennai's traffik....

Yep, i'd booked the swift initially, and couldn't accept with its waiting period for certain reasons, and I ain't regrettin... But I hope you're enjoying yours pal... Kaisa hai??? Hows that audio booming

Fortunately I managed to get my Swift before the price hike. I dont regret it at all, however had the option of Indica Turbo been there, I would have thought twice before buying the Swift. But everytime I sit in my car, that feeling goes away.
Somehow in my psychie (no offence to anyone), Indica is a cab! And daily I am picked up in an Indica, and the rattles just rattle my brain. Therefore I am not sure how the Indica Turbo would perform, as its just the engine, rest everything remains the same... so just cant help but speculate what might go wrong when it comes to Indica.
Rest the audio just like yours is rocking. Contemplating to buy the touchscreen Pioneer Head Unit with DVD and 5.1 audio, adding a mono-block for the sub, and dynamat for the doors for dampening! Thats all for now.... have spent close to a lakh on the car till now in accesories.

well aseem, yeah its mainly used as a cab but I think there is a huge diff between the indicabs and the upper versions. Also the turbo is not just the engine upgrade but it also gets 14" alloys - Yummy
