Thumbs up Hi From Firebird

A big Hello to All gentlemen,

I am fresher on this forum. My interest in buying a car made me subscribe to team-bhp. I am from Mumbai, a software engineer.

There are many things to learn from you all guys. I am sure after reading all reviews I will be able to make a good selection.

till then keep posting.

Milind

You have various options in that range. It depends on what you are looking for in your car; whether you want to drive it predominantly in the city or you want to make frequent highway trips; whether you are looking for a petrol or diesel; lots of other parameters. Do let us know.

hey buddy

welcome aboard team-bhp ..
hope you enjoy your stay
do read the anouncement section before posting further ...

4.5 range swift should be a great buy if you are willing to wait that long for the delivery !Another option could be a Palio 1.2ELX (since A.S.S seem much better in your region)

cheers

Thanks guys for ur valued suggestions.

When I started reading the reviews, I had 2 cars in mind

WagonR VXi and Xing XS. Although I like Palio sport a lot, not able to make up my mind to buy 1....there are A.S.S and FE factors to be on safer side. (palio users can guide me in this)

I will be driving with in city limits....some occasions....express way...
The distance I cover daily is around max 20 km, involves SV road (1 of the main road in Mumbai) and Link road.... monthly not more than 600 km..

So guys this is the whole scenario.....

Hi Buddy....nice to have you here. Now that you have come....enjoy yourself and learn a lot from the big guys(not that i am 1). You have a budget of 4.5lakhs, its surely got to be a Swift.

When I took the first look, it didnít impress me. I really don't like the outlook of the vehicle & decided this is not the car that I love to own.

But on repeated visits, my heart slowly went for Swift especially for the bigger tyres, gigantic side view mirrors, cute steering wheel & gear lever, sexy headlights and so on. Positive Reviews on Swifts and suggestions from senior members added fuel to the fire, which made me to decide for Swift. Now mine has completed 1000 kms & gives a mileage of 14 kmpl and the drive is very smooth.

Iam just putting you my experience, which you can consider before deciding. TEAM-BHP will give you samples on all varieties to taste before you decide.

ps 1: The waiting period is real pain

ps 2: If Iam not wrong, even the new members can post in what car section, why not continue the discussion there
