You should get a good deal on that one though, end of year and demonetization effect
Just read the maintenance costs in autocar india, you'll get a bill twice that for your swift certainly with that sort of running

Ya. I know!

But the overall ownership would be peaceful over the other car that I initially chosen to replace the Swift!

S-Cross it is? Haha! Glad to know that buddy. Great choice. Remember how much I had tried convincing you for the same over the XUV? :P

Congrats on the 100k milestone.

I remember!

Can't understand why M&M can't iron out issues in the XUV 5OO even after it being on sales from 2011! Beats me!

Initially both engines were available from Delta but End 2015, IIRC, Maruti stopped Delta and Xeta on the DDiS320 variant.

My running is 110 kms a day.
Well, the nexa website lists all 3, delta zeta and alpha still, albeit the delta at a mouth watering price of about 2 lakhs less than the alpha with almost all the essentials ticked except for may be alloy wheels
There's also a limited edition on offer
Do look into the other models of 1.6 as there isn't much by way of safety differentiation, although i found it to be just above elite i20 in terms of outright pick up in lower gears and with much more lag than your swift
P.S had a long 17km td of the S cross 1.6

Website/price list isn't updated my dear.

Check the S-Cross brochure. It has only Alpha for 1.6.

Congrats anurag on a splendid ownership and happy b'day to your Blue Streak

Maruti are not 'The Best' when it comes to fit/finish, paint quality and ageing. Many of my friends Swifts have faded considerably over a short time.

But with folks like you, who know how to maintain their steads, it really does not matter which make.

Quite honestly, I can't make out much of difference between those 2 pics (sans those yellow ribbons), in all those 3yrs time gap buddy

Wish you many more mile munching and drive safe.

A week back at work, while walking towards the car with my keys in hand, it slipped breaking the outer cover making it useless to lock/unlock the car. This was the third fall since date of purchase. With every fall the plastic part that holds the battery in-place was cracking. This fall was the last in the straw!

Somehow holding the battery and terminals together I could open the car and reach home. Swapped the broken key for the spare key till I could get a solution which was replace the key shell either from MGP or aftermarket.

After searching on eBay and PayTm, went ahead and got the key shell (1 number) from PayTm for ₹319 after cashback. Replacement for straightforward though.

Old key - broken

Remember to transfer the transponder chip from the old key to the new one else the car will NOT start

Old vs New Key

Screwdriver set (Needs +1.7 for the screw)

Need to get the blade cut to the right shape so that I can start using it.

Shopping experience @ PayTm: 8/10

Belated congratulations for the 1L km & congratulations in advance for the 1.6 S cross!
Does the new key shell comes with the rubber button for LOCK/UNLOCK?

No buddy. It doesn't come with the LOCK/UNLOCK buttons. It is only the key shell.

Rest all needs to be carried over from the older/broken/damaged key that one is looking to repair/replace.

Hey Anurag, any updates on the headlights? The current 100/90 setup is working fine for you?

Is there any chance of reflectors burning out/turning greyish black due to excessive heat of high power bulbs?

Absolutely fine. No issues at all.

None whatsoever. Reflectors are in good health with no damage or blackening.

I am loving every kilometer of night since with these headlights. Very happy.

I recommend this setup to all who want an upgrade at a cheaper cost compared to projectors.

Hi Anurag!
Would you recommend any specific OBD2 reader/scanner tool for Swift Diesel?! (You've been using one for your Swift if I remember correctly!).We have a Swift Diesel in our family and are planning to procure an OBD2 reader (one of our relatives is returning from the US & we are thinking about asking them to bring it along if better options are available there!)
