Although this is not directly related to this topic but still im attaching the picture.
I had heard a lot about inconsistent panel gaps in TATA cars but yesterday I was shocked to see this, saw this at jail road. This was Indigo Cs.

er, whats wrong?

the fuel filler flap is not curved to match the rest of the body, and hence the perceived gaps.
This is "as designed"

+1 to that .....or have we grown used to looking at it so much that we cannot spot a fault.

What about the trunk lid?

Overall, the fit is BAD.

Don't get me wrong here. If a little care is taken, that lid can be closed leaving a uniform gap all around.

Dear All on this Thread

Well i am relatively new on Team BHP and so also on this thread.

However this thread is very close to my heart as i too had purchased a Indigo CS TDI LS in APR 07 and after the initial euphoria of a new car ( My first) had worn off, i had doubts as to what i had bought

Well after almost an year and 11800 Kms almost all my doubts were laid to rest about this car thanks most to the positive posts on this thread as well as my own experiences

I kept learning something new about the car through the posts here i.e rear view fog lamps etc and this kept the interest on this thread as well as in my car alive

Well I find Indigo CS TDI most pleasing car for the cost paid

Dear Santosh

I am a bit late in offering my regrets on the boulder/stone issue you had, but i think you got away lightly, thanks to the car as well as your attitude to the whole issue

Please keep up your posts. I do look up the same almost every day

Also thanks to the others Trrk, Greenhorn for their valuable insight not only for this car but overall

Bye for now

Nandan, Glad to know you're happy with your car. Just change the oil every 5000km, and the engine will be very happy

My Marina is the second one in the Tata portfolio of cars and the fourth Tata product that I have owned.

None of them have let me down and have been value for money.

I wish you many more thousands of kilomteres in your vehicle.

Thanks Santosh, for allowing us to share your space!
