Okay, I just calculated again. I got a net discount of 74K on the elegance trim. Though the buyback of my old car is not that great since it is MH registered. However I do not want to get into the hassle of selling it on my own. I am also getting the matting, car cover, mud flaps and Teflon treatment free with the car.

As per the dealer, 2015 VIN will be confirmed only once the new prices are revealed. What's your take on this?

I am going in for a Cappuccino Beige, as I like my ride to be understated! Saw one red car in black edition. Car was to die for!

The dealer was J.S.B Auto.
Cappuccino Beige is indeed a very nice color. @Charansuki ( this thread's originator), has gone for it too. Looks understated and classy. However he didn't' go in for black package option, IMHO that would have made it look a bit sportier and pacy.
For me also the color confusion has started all over again this morning. I was sure to go in for Toffee Brown with balck package but today the dealer called & told that black package was not yet available in Toffee Brown :( . So I may also go in for Beige or Silver now. Still going to call Skoda HQ for confirmation.
Also if you are getting such discounts on the 2014 VIN, go ahead as there should be no feature improvements for 2015 VIN. My problem is that our dealer here has no 2014 VINs in stock

Okay, my dealer is also JSB auto. He has one more in stock. Do you want me to ship it across to Hyderabad!

Thanks a ton! Bro, heartfelt appreciation.
I called up these guys they said Skoda does not allow cross selling in other regions where they have the dealership, but he is still trying to find out a way and will call me back if that is possible.

Hi abhjain, could you post some pics of the Cappuccino Beige with black package. I've not seen that one yet. I'm yet to decide between the silver or the beige. Toffee Brown is out of list now since it is confirmed to not have the black package.

I did speak to Praful and he sounded very helpful indeed, but my bank is having some issues to finance the car purchased from Delhi. Tons of thanks for your kind gesture Bro!

Hi Abhi, sorry but don't have any pics of cappuccino Beige black package. I am posting the white with black package if this helps. My personal opinion would be silver in black package.

Abhi_d, seems like we have saved another 40K by booking early. Most manufacturers have increased the prices effective today.

Yes, looks like
Someone from the sales team was telling me that Skoda may not increase the price in January though. Anyways it's better to be safe than sorry.

Last 10-15 posts is like a 1-1 conversation between you both and does not add value to thread ownership. Thanks for your understanding !!
Noted and will be supoer careful. Got too engrossed with the booking process and the choice of colors.

Beautiful! I guess it would have looked better with the black roof wrap.

I have put a gloss roof wrap and now I think i should look at getting the blackened grill, headlights and fog lamps too!

Congrats abhi d and abhjain.

I will also have to wait three more weeks to lay my hands on my rapid 1.5 mt ambition plus.

My car has arrived and is in the stock yard. My elderly people at home have given me an auspicious day after three weeks only.

Its getting irresistible for me till then.
