For installing some of this has blown my pocket to the tune of nearly 45000 extra which make it now a 6 lakh on road.

Looks like the poor comfort provided by the seats is showing up for those with back problems. Even GeekSrik reported the same, and has been complaining a lot about it.

Yes this time it has taken up heavily wherein I had to just sleep 10 days nothing to do. I had got a angular tear in disc. The main problem in seats in there is no adequate lumbar support. Hope so that is rectified while designing swift sedan.
