Hi.

My dealer (Ring Road Honda) says that I will need to pay Rs.2,500/- for temporary registration including number plate charges which is valid for one month. I am talking about Gurgaon.

Is this information correct ?

Temp registration does not cost this much, all dealers overcharge for temp and permanent registration because everyone wants to avoid the hassle. A cheap Number plate costs mere 100-200 bucks.

I have never paid logistics charge and inflated temp registration, i always get the car self registered, believe me its a very easy process.

Registration process in Gurgaon, my post quoted from another thread:

  • Get the complete file(Already prepared by Dealership).
  • Add Address Proof and Pan Card Copy.
  • Get the car inspected outside Secreteriat gate(Check timings, AFAIK it's before 12pm on all working days).
  • Get the file checked at 2nd floor by assigned Police officer.
  • Pay the Fees + Tax at the common counter.
  • Submit the File and take the receipt, the reciept can be used as Registration Certificate until RC arrives.
  • Pick the RC after 15-20 days in exchange for the issued receipt.

If you stay in Gurgaon, the Lease Deed of your apartment will work as Address proof. Ration Card\Voter ID card will also work.

Got the car 3 days back and have covered 100 kms.

Some observations are:

The engine is ultra smooth and super refined. Its quite peppy too but I have not really revved it beyond 3.5K RPM.

Its incredibly flickable and super fun. Turns quite neat, parks at tight spots, handles and rides pretty well.

Front seats are very comfortable and quite comparable with Polo.

Steering is very light and feel is a bit less but for city speeds relaxing.

It comes with a parcel tray but doesn't cover the boot completely from prying eyes.

The biggest disappointment for me is the gear shifts. Its too rubbery and finding the second gear is always hard. There exists a huge difference between Polo shifts and this. Would it get better with time and running? Is mine an exception and should I get it checked? Or am I expecting too much from it and comparison with Polo is unrealistic? No reviews mention of poor shift quality. Other than this one issue, the car is a dream.

Congrats for the car and thanks your observations.

^^ Thanks mukeshgoel. Mine is V MT.

My final OTR was 6.38L. Its a bit more here in Bangalore.

There was an essential pack for which was charged 3k. That includes a car body cover and Floor Mats or Puncture repair kit. I Chose the puncture repair kit coz plan to go in for 3D Kagu mats. It went in for this hopeless offer because I wanted the body cover from Honda.

Hi - I booked my Brio SMT on 10th DEC 2011 and was promised delivery latest by February.

I have been contacting him multiple times since beginning of February, every time getting a promise of delivery within a week. On March 1st SA promised delivery by March 10th.

I called him yesterday and now he is saying that it will be another month before my color (Urban Titanium) is available, adding that Silver is available, which I dont want.
Delay of one more month due to just my color not available is really frustrating.

Can I do something to tackle this situation. I am in US right now and this is a purchase for my parents. This is Amritsar.

Hello,

Honestly little you can do considering you are not in the country, maybe a mail to Honda can help but will in real world do little, but do try,

Also considering the demand as of now is high due to supply issues a lot of cars get poached by others and some using various means of pressures, that's the real world but in reality it would make matters a little easy if you were in the country,

Just email Honda and get a confirmation based on the data,

Regards,

Saw a full page advert of the Honda Brio in a local Marathi newspaper last week.
Looks like the production has commenced in full swing and they want turnaround the fortunes of the Brio.

Guys

Is it true that all variants below S(O) MT have non- internally adjustable OVRMs?

I kind of find it strange. S(o)MT and V MT have electrically adjustable mirrors, but the other low models (S and E), lack even manual internal adjustment ?

Thanks S350L-E240!! I emailed the dealer on Monday expressing my concerns over the delivery dates and the next day they called my father to get the delivery on Thursday. The car is home now in our preferred color.
Team-BHP is always a help
Cant wait to place my hands on steering wheel when I am on vacation in India next month.

The dealers now say that I will have to pay 2% extra due to excise duty hike in budget, even though I will take delivery by 30th march. I was supposed to get the car by mid-march. But now end of march. Due to the delay from Honda, I will have to bear the 2% hike :-(
