It's an easy fix. Just align it with the groove along the window glass. See picture.

I've been planning to get the stock speakers upgraded, so I visited Motor Concepts, New Delhi over the weekend after having read good reviews on another thread.

I understand that the stock size is 5.25" and I was told that to install 6"+ speakers inside the door to retain the OEM look (OEM speaker grill with nothing protruding out), they would trim the OE speaker slot.

My question is has anyone tried this and is it advisable to do this? Has anyone faced any rattling or vibration from the speakers due to improper setting in the slot?

Got the car back yesterday after the accident repair. They delivered it 10 days before the promised date which came as a surprise. The total amount (paid by insurance) is a whopping 2.24 Lakhs ! and I paid just 2k from pocket.

The cost of the spare parts is unimaginably high and I would suggest anyone buying a duster to get Zero Dip insurance.

It's the RXL (O). Alloys, Nav system, etc.

Appx mumbai
ex showroom 11,39k
registration 1,41k
comprehensive Ins 41k
zero dep 9k
Cash disc 70k
total 12,50k

They are throwing in some accessories like mats, cushions and stuff.
I'm interested in the front guard of the Adventure Edition.. costs 15k.
Any ideas about that New Rambo guard?

Thanks very much for your reply, are there any discounts running on the RXL+ apart from the ex-showroom price which was brought down under the 10 Lakh tax slab.
I was also given the same price for the guard and on inquiring about the body cladding he said the total price would be coming to 43k with the guard.

I don't think there are any discounts on the plus variant.

Has anyone in the forum bought in one city and did first servicing in another? The dealer chap says confidently that it's indeed possible and is valid for all over the country.

Hello guys, had booked 85ps RXL plus variant white colour last week. The on-road price in Bangalore is 12,05,161/-.
Received the VIN number today - MEEHSRAW5EA074308
It looks like an October, 2014 model
Will take delivery early next week after PDI and registration

Congrats on your purchase!!! Did you receive any discounts for the same.
Did you buy the insurance from the dealer and could you post a breakdown of the price.

Is it possible to switch off the music while still keeping the media-nav on (for the phone or GPS)? I know I can pause it but it switches itself on the moment I do an off-on with the ignition at a long red light or something like that. Any solution? If I take the pen drive off, it turns the radio on by default. What a pain sometimes.
