Your best option would be to get a Dupont car cover since it wont scratch your car unlike the maruti one.

Also since you bought a Red swift,please please pick up sum car care products like a basic wax polish+vista car care care set.Your car will turn a fugly dull cherry colour if you dont wax it.If possble try to get a paint protection treatment after your third service...it will remove the initial swirl marks,scratches etc.

Guys,

Let me clarify. In no ways am I saying that by carrying out the said Mods warranty will not be void.. Warranty on a vehicle is void by doing most of the below mentioned accessories as well but the whole world installs them. And before anybody says something there are exceptions to all. Even dealers flout the rules and sometimes get a customer into trouble. They scare customers by saying if we do it then you get warranty if you do it from outside no warranty.

1> Head Unit/Sound System change - Electrical Warranty void.
2> Head Light Bulb Upgrade/After market Fogs - Electrical Warranty Void.
3> Alloys and fatter rubber other than OE size - suspension and brake warranty void.
4> Aftermarket conical filters - Sensors and engine warranty void
5> Free flow exhaust - Engine warranty void.
6> Fitting Spoiler/drilling holes - Paint corrosion warranty void.
7> After market Alarm/Security System - Electrical warranty and Locks warranty.


This is not a complete list and there are many more accessories that void warranty.

Default Zeroing in....

Thanks a lot guys for your valuable inputs. This helps a lot for a newbie like me from getting cheated by the sales guys :-)

Based on your suggestions I have decided to buy the following accessories.

1. Xenos security system. (Any particular model number/features?). My budget is around 6K. Any particular shop in Blore? I guess the dealer, Bimal doesn't have it with them.

2. Art Seat cover. Since I had placed the order 1 week back, dealer wouldn't let me cancel this. They say, this is already made :-(. So, I'm not fully happy about losing this 5.5K :-(. I wish I had posted my query to the group before committing on that.

3. Gear lock. I am not very sure about this one. Some people say it'll hamper the "look" of the interiors. Pls advice.
Also, Please let me know how much does it cost and whr in Blore I can get it done?

4. Wax polish+vista car care set

I have put things like sunfilm, Teflon coating etc on hold. Still in 2 minds about Teflon anyway.. :-)

I'll get the delivery of the vehicle trw, from Bimal automobiles Blore. Now the last one, any suggestions on the overall caution I should exercise while getting the car delivered.. like insurance, defective product etc :-) (I went thru the pre-delivery checklist i got from this Forum. That's too exhaustive!)

I agree that I could be sounding trivial about many of my concerns... But pls understand it's my first car and I'm looking up to you, experienced people, to guide me thru.. :-) This forum has been very reassuring for a newbie like me..

Thanks a lot in advance..

my 2 cents... teflon is worthless. you're investing in a good wax polish as i see... that should stand you in good stead. if ur hoping for teflon to protect your car against scratches et all (like they tell u at the shops), you will be disappointed... found that out thru personal experience.

Melody,

Please read the thread on the pre delivery inspection before taking delivery.

Best wishes on your new car.

Also suggest that you buy some cleaning cloth. I suggest 3M sponges.

Regards,

Xenos is a piece of crap... Have been having atleast one problem every month with Xenos remote locking that I have in my car since I bought it sometime back.. and finally it is totally dead now.. Planning to remove it completely and throw it out.... Go for Autocop.

Melody, your thread on Xenos security systems has been merged. Please continue your queries on your new Swift on the same thread.

Guys,

I am looking for extra lights - hella or such which can illuminate the sides of the roads which is extremely essential while driving in hills and highways. Any suggestions as to which model and where i can purchase these given my understanding that there are a lot of fake products in the Bangalore mkt? TIA

Any half-decent accessory shop will have it. But remember that the same are illegal on private vehicles, so if you do get one be careful where you use it, if the thullas catch you you're in big trouble!
