Maybe I too couldn't express my views correctly. Being a software engineer, I know very well that tools are good but people who use these tools and create amazing things are legends. If we don't know to use Photoshop, its no use for us and we can't draw a line with it.

Credit goes to artist only.

PS: Work with the tool is amazing. It means work is amazing not tool!

The rumor regarding the swift sedan has really picked up with a few auto-analysts even confidently saying that it would be launched with a diesel option as well.They say it would be launched immediately when maruti is able to clear its capacity constraint problems for the moment.

Even maruti is saying that rapid launches of new products is the way out in the slowing down Indian automobile market.

Isnt that the Louvre? Oh there is a car in front of it! Sorry missed that one!

No offense to Ram for his effort with the Paintshop (fabulous job at his end), however I think it'll be one hell of an ugly looking sedan if thats how it'll come out!

Waiting for pics! Can't wait to see how they make a hatchback out of the Swift! If they can, hats off to Maruti!

Would be very interesting to see how maruti price the Swift Dzire especially the diesel variant.Would be very difficult for them to match the esteems pricing so maybe the esteem will still continue,also unlike the baleno not much info about discontinuation of the esteem.

I think the major issue that Maruti is going to face is capacity to meet demand.

I strongly believe that they should hold on to the Dzire until they have sufficient capacity to deliver. Any update on swift waiting period??

One of the dealers in trivandrum says he will deliver the car within 20-25 days. My friend is booking the car tomorrow!
