Good going Hitanshu but stop treating it like a two wheeler!!! One of these days, something bigger than a fog lamp mounting may give way.....which will cost a tad more than 50 bucks!

Hitanshu

this shade is called "Sunlight Copper" ? I am a bit confused now as the Swift brochure displays it in a orange shade.

And only other red shade left is "solid Bright Red"

Please confirm the shade name.

Thanks

Happy with the tornadoes overall. Though wouldn't say that the driving experience is as fun as it could've. Maybe a Getz D at the offer price would've been better!

Ha ha. I forgot that a 5.5L car is 100X more frail than a 0.6L bike

Sigh. The original target was 35k km. I forgot that consultants get no leave!! I only tour on second saturdays!

But the car may do only 28-29k km in a year. Got some expiring award miles to encash and bike touring to catch up.

Bhai, there was a shade change. Maruti is lazy in updating its brochures (costs money you see!). My car's color is the sunlight copper you get today!

Go ahead. Buy it.

But be ready to pay premium since this is the most delayed (and wanted) shade!

Yeah i am a bit worried now about the Delivery Period and which dealer is good in NCR ?

Its been almost 5 years since i bought my Zen from APRA and knew the Sales Manager personally so no hiccups at all.

this time i am not sure which dealer to go to ? Maybe you guys can help.

UPDATE: I denied a stupid suicidal biker's death wish but an Indicab slammed my rear bumper.

There goes my weekend.

Any dealer is decent. Apra, Competent, Pasco etc. Just find the one with the least delivery time, or where you have jugaad.

Congrats on the Quarter Century. Thats decent mileage in 10 Months. Read through your entire report. Very informative and to the point. Lists out the pros and cons very well. I guess this comes naturally being a consultant

BTW Do you travel by car outstation on work? If the mileage is achieved driving majorly in town, then you must be really vella
