I guess you get safety features as Airbags and ABS in ZXi. Then Climate control as a additional comfort feature. They are worth every money you spend.

What about the more important stuff than alloys and seat covers... the airbags, ABS, climate control and driver seat's height adjuster?

I was deciding for about one month between vxi & zxi.
i feel my budget would have over-shot by about a lakh over and above the OTR price of ZXi, had i gone in for a zxi.

in the end its about making a trade-off between features and pocket-size.
i feel all the above-mentioned features are necessary but just not necessary enough for me.

and anyways guys, the black civic i plan to get next has only 1 version and is loaded to the gills.

happy motoring to one and all

cheers

Good Call.Even I wouldnt take a higher spec model just for its alloys,seat covers or music system.But if it is ABS or Airbags,thats a different issue.

i guess if he had the combined moolah to go in for the zxi and the expenses he has made till now, he would have.

well on second thoughts, i would have too.

well, on third thoughts, who wouldn't have?

so crafty, dont let it weigh on you too much.

you've made a sensible decision. and when is the midnight black hawk civic coming

Hey maan.. Nice ride.. If I am not mistaken you stay in Shekh sarai Phase 2 right. I saw this sexy sx4 with another zen with nice rims parked there today. By the way I have the same ICE except for 6950 instead of your 7950 and different Amp.. Good too see you at team-bhp maan..
