Default Hello!

Hi All,

Good evening! It's nice to finally be able to post on a forum in which I've been spending inappropriately large number of hours

I'm Abhiram. I am from Bangalore. I'm a software engineer by profession. I've been a very keen car and bike enthusiast since the street hawk and knight rider days of early 1990s. Though my speed and thrill seeking days are behind me, the Bangalore traffic, population explosion and pollution has me itching for long drives. I've never traveled much. I'm looking to change that. So, y'all will probably see me most on travelogue section.

My list of vehicles is fairly short. I own a good ol' Pulsar 150 DTSI and Maruthi Suzuki Alto.

Incidentally, today is also the day I booked my Maruthi Suzuki Ciaz ZXI (O) !!!

Nice to meet you all and see you around! ☺

Cheers.

Abhiram, welcome to the forum and wish you a long and productive stay here!

Congrats on the Ciaz- good to see that you have gone for the full safety variant .

Looking forward to your ownership experience once you get the car. What's the waiting period like?

Thank you. 😊 Good to be here.
There's no waiting period at all. Came as a surprise to me since I've seen many gripes online on the issue. The color I wanted (Sangria Red) wasn't in stock. So they're just waiting for my loan to be processed and have promised delivery with in 15 days.

Hi Abhiram,

Welcome to the Forum!
Congrats on the Ciaz & good choice of colour too.
Have seen that in my person as one of my colleague has got the same.
Great to know that you went for top end variant.
Enjoy your stay here

Thanks Gypsyking. 😊
The gunmetal 16" alloys looked too good on the sangria red to ignore. I don't really care about the chrome inserts but did not want to pass up on the wheels and leather seats for just 15K.

Did not consider vdi as I really wanted dual airbags.

I'll put up a detailed initial ownership thread once I get the car and clock up some miles.
