Thank you manson for a detailed review of the xuv5OO (note the O's used instead of the 0's )
Reading it was almost as good as getting a test-drive myself. Reacting to GTO's opinion of the front design, I too feel that it is a wee bit pretentious for a SUV of its calibre/grade. However, I did not dislike it. Thanks again!!

My vehicle is expected to get delivered on 20th April, so I went to dealer and try to get the quotation for completing the financial formalities. I was quoted a whooping 54K (for W6 and 56K for W8) for the insurance and it was from Bharti AXA. I immediately told the experience executive that it was way too much and I would like to take it on my own. For which he agreed without any hesitation. I immediately requested a quote online with Bajaj Allianz as I have my current insurance with them. Since I can transfer my NCB to the new insurance. The Bajaj Allianz quote me a price of 32K for the IDV value of 10,90,000 odd, but I couldn't increase it any further online. I wanted to know some facts as to understand what is Zero Percent depreciation. Is it the IDV value should be same as that of ex-showroom price. Also I received the call from BA head office in Pune and executive told me that if you get me the new vehicles Chasis No. and Engine No. he can negotiate more with his supervisors to get me the extra discounts as well. I just wanted to know whatever premium I am paying is for the right IDV value. What should be an ideal IDV value for a new W6 in Hyderabad, please help

The first IDV should be same as ex showroom price right? And even if you take a different company insurance, you STILL can carry over the NCB! I suggest you two things,

1. Get the proper break up prices for your car from the SA - pass on the ex showroom price to the BA guys.

2. With the break up details, call up two more private insurance guys and get their quote.

3. Pitch them against each other for really competitive rates.

I too got the insurance for my XUV outside the dealership, from TATA AIG.

I called atleast 3 agents (for 3 different insurance companies) and all three told me, even for brand new vehicles, the IDV value is 5% less than the ex-showroom value.
I did not opt for the Zero Depreciation option as the policy said, for brand new vehicles, for first 6 months, 100% of IDV will anyways be covered; for the remaining 6 months 95% will be covered (brand new vehicles). I thought i will consider Zero Dep option from 2nd year on.
I too had 50% NCB (from BajAllz) carried from my previous vehicle that any other Insurer should consider. I opted for TATA AIG as they had a 'NCB Protection' add-on (for a small extra). This means, even if i claimed for damages this year (only once across the year), my NCB will not be affected during renewal. The catch is, i will have to renew next year with TATA itself. This seemed interesting to me as a i carried a 50% NCB. For an IDV of about 11.5 Lacs i paid premiun of about 22.6K including NCB Protection add-on from TATA AIG.

When I got my W6 delivered - Showroom guys told me to have normal Diesel only. They were against the use of "Premium" Diesel.

Any reasons ?

Simple: its a waste of money

Go with the normal one, dont need to spend extra for premium where you are not sure if it actually is a premium diesel or its just the sticker at the pump.

Some times, premium diesels cause a lot of black smoke and hence they suggest normal diesel. I guess it's something to do with CRDi tech, not sure of the technical reason. If you notice, irrespective of the brand & price of the car, all CRDi engines are suggested to be filled with normal diesel. A boon if you ask me!
