Certainly looks classy. *___*
But close to 25k. Isn't it on the higher side? Plus you'll be charged some amount by the customs also, which will again pump up the cost.
And do check how reliable this is.

I have been thinking of retrofitting the OEM touch screen for a while now. Have you enquired about that. And a few more questions that comes to my mind which you might look into.
1. How about the integration with steering controls, phone mic, Aux input socket, reverse camera?
2. What is the cost advantage over the OEM touch screen
3. What about the car warranty. Will it get affected.

Hi, it sure is expensive considering its made in china. However i feel its a reliable product if bought from a Top Rates Seller. we have a few members who have installed similar units in there polos. Please have a look.

I think its very simple to integrate everything, the seller has mentioned that on his page.
2. What is the cost advantage over the OEM touch screen
i am not sure about the cost advantage, since i have no clue about the price of the OEM unit. But i feel its a better option then OEM since its an anriod unit, you can have a lot of apps installed which is not possible in the OEM unit.
3. What about the car warranty. Will it get affected.
it will not affect the warranty since its a direct fit. there is no cutting of wires required.
i think the following post will answer you questions better.http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/car-en...lo-gt-tsi.html (Android Head-Unit in my VW Polo GT TSI)

We got 28 k discount (18 Consumer offer + 10 k Corporate discount)
Saving additional 10-12k on insurance
Our vehicle is sent for registration. Hopefully, it will be delivered tomorrow or the day after.

Look at the date. It's a one month old article. Apart from this one, I couldn't find any other report from any reliable source. Doesn't it look just like a speculation or imagination of the reporter?

Can you post the pic of the smart infotainment... Need to check if we can upgrade the existing head units to the new car play.

Did you mean 2015 manufactured Ciaz? 1.2TSI7DSG also should have got 2015 vehicle. What I heard from Maruti dealers is that, manufacturing plant was shut down from Dec 2nd week and they will start dispatching 2016 vehicles only in January second half.

Please pardon me if I misinterpreted your question.

Mine is a 2015 manufactured Ciaz (Dec 3, 2015 to be precise).

It the same as that was launched in Sept 2015. No changes wrt to it.

Some photos- pardon the poor quality of some cell clicked pics at the time of delivery

I got my Ciaz ZXi on Wednesday.

It was ready for delivery in December last week, but postponed for January registration (It doesn't make much difference. Still, at least let the date of registration be in 2016).

Installed nomad mats, PPF and front windscreen CR-70 at 3M. For further pampering, already got Jopasu combo pack

Still haven't got a chance for any long drive or highway trip. Only short drives of 5-10km within Bangalore city traffic. So far, everything looks good.

Attaching a pic (sorry for poor quality)

Hello team,
I drove Ciaz Diesel recently. I own SX4 diesel which has same 1.3 multijet engine. Performance is decent and car felt little faster off the line compared to my SX4. Rear legroom was better than SX4, but I found rear seats of SX4 more comfortable with better under thigh support. Also Suspension is softened for Ciaz and handling was neutral compared to my stiffly sprung SX4.
