Thad is right. With all the other good to have items Swift LDI would have crossed 6L on the road and it would have outpriced itself.

phew .... a rather long day today. was my last day at philips. what a company! i'd be grateful if i return to this company some day by turn of events. the employee friendliness you got to see it to believe it!

coming to other things, diesel fan, for the car they can always have OPTIONS! who is stopping them from giving more to the users man? after all airbags can always be fitted as in zxi, so no big deal with abs and stuff as well. i would not mind paying 50k more for features dude.

You got me wrong. I meant we should not load LDI with the features but having a high end variant say ZDI shouldn't be an issue.

With that I agree. I would certainly have bought a 'ZDI' --- for the airbags, first and foremost.

you check your tyre pressure once a month? I do it every week. Sunday is the scheduled day for it and each week i see a reduction of 3-4 PSI.

Maruti should take the lead in offering a ton of options. If a person is willing to pay more for more, it shouldn't be a problem. Some things might need factory fitment and might delay the delivery.
Look at Volkswagon, a range of engine options (petrol/diesel) in various sizes are available across different class of cars.

I agree, but that would 6.5 plus lacs for a hatch which doesnt even have a decent boot.

once a month is enough for michelin tubeless unless you ve been driving too much and too fast on potholed roads. in fact i would not have wanted to check even after a month, just that i had a long drive to chennai, with full of potholes and stuff and i felt my front right tyre had lost air a bit which led to some imbalance feeling while driving. so decided to put in 32 again for all tyres.

Well, i am on tubed tyres. Is it different for them? But, i feel the tyres reduce 2-3 psi each week i re-check.

i m really not sure how to answer your query. but i dont think it must be different unless the driving you do and the one i do differ!

but i ve observed with all my other cars, that with tubed tyres often the air goes down week after week. maybe since my tyres are new they are able to hold on even after a month. got to wait and watch how they behave on signs of aging.

Yup Petes box, the details are on the other thread in my signature, costs 29k, and nothing is changed and its jsut plug and play and your ready to go, no cutting of wires, OE wires are all there, very simple install, the best power money can buy for diesels and FE is expected to go up.

If its N2 and predictable running, 1 month is not a problem by any stretch.

And if you're losing 3-4 PSI/week, that's not normal either.

Agree with Mahesh here. The air pressure going down by 3-4 PSI is not normal. My car runs on tubed tyres, and when i go to have the air checked, its more or less the same.
