This looks captivating.

The sole Achilles' Heel of S-Cross is its understated [ and unappealing] design and the facelift seems to resolve it.

Some might disagree with what I find attractive but that front grill hovers around 'love or hate but cannot ignore' style.

I got this SMS today morning.

It is NEXA 1st anniversary and we are privileged to have you as a MyNEXA member - Team NEXA

I am also happy and proud, but what is Maruti doing about it? I thought there will be some get-together, or some free check-ups or some kind of activity on the occasion of first anniversary. After all, both Nexa and S-Cross are supposed to be premium offerings from Maruti. Am I asking for too much?

I too use armour all car wash. It's the best. But 3m wax wasn't able to give a shine like yours. Does wax come off in rains? It's been raining like hell here in Goa. Heard someone saying we shouldn't be applying wax during monsoon.

Yeah I have faced a similar problem. I used scratch out on the front fender to remove a minor scratch and some of it did get rubbed on the black plastic cladding and after that I haven't been able to remove the white marks. It's been a few weeks and they seem to be vanishing slowly.

I don't think applying wax in monsoon is harmful but yes the higher frequency of rains during monsoon may affect the life of wax so the car may lose its shine earlier than in normal conditions. And also I cannot comment about the 3M wax as I have only used Formula1 Carnauba Carwax for all my vehicles and it always gives me good result. I also keep a spraywax parked in the boot of the car. And a few days ago I got a Teflon coating for my S-Cross which has enhanced the shine and i hope will protect the paint.

Maruti Suzuki deprioritize the production of S Cross to make way for Vitara Brezza and Baleno's.

Waiting period for DDiS200 stands at ~ 10-12 weeks in Bangalore.

Here is the latest pricing of Zeta DDiS200 in Bangalore. Minimum waiting period is ~ 8-10 weeks and is dependent on the color too.

Thanks for this Volkman.
On this topic a question in general, does anyone here know how this price compares to pricing of Zeta DDiS200 around this time last year in Bangalore ?
Also the Nexa card charge mentioned here was paid by me when I purchased in Jan and 7 months later I still have not received anything yet. Has anyone recieved a card ? If they are charging for it my guess is they should deliver it. I tried using the Nexa app to raise a request and nothing happened there either.

[quote=volkman10;4023154]Yes, I have it for you

Wow, that was quick. Thanks again Volkman.
This means the price without the corporate discount is approx. 20k lesser now. Surely early bird gets the worm isn't really true in this case but definitely good to know that inspite of whatever changes in taxation post budget the change is still a positive one for the new buyers.

I got a 2015 Oct manufactured alpha 200ddis for 12.4 OTR in Jan this year, and extremely happy with the car. It's done 14 k Kms till date and goinf strong.

My vehicle has come to the yard and am going to check it tomorrow. Can I know where I can find the VIN number of the car? It is an Alpha 1.6, if that matters...

@Arvind, please open the bonnet and look at the panel just below the windshield in the engine bay, you will see the VIN along with the last two alphabets that will tell you the month and year of manufacture imprinted on a metal plate. There are several threads here which will tell you how to interpret the month and year of make from the VIN, a search should get you there. Hope this helps.

I removed the back cap of headlight to check the ballast and projector. Back cap is fixed with a single screw on top.

Ballast is placed inside headlight assembly. It is a 25W Philips Ballast. Bulb is D5S Hid. There is enough space to remove the stock projector from back. I hope new projector (Mini D2S) could be installed without opening the headlight assembly. I need to confirm about this. A projector swap without opening headlight assembly would be just great.

Took a look at vehicle today at the yard. Based on your response, was able to quickly find out the VIN number and the last 2 alphabets were GG which I assume to be July 2016 based on some googling. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Did a quick check and found everything to be ok. Only thing was they had already removed the plastic covers for the car seat. I requested them to put on new plastic covers as the delivery would happen only on the 4th of August. I am not sure if they can put new plastic sheets though. I guess a good vacuuming session before delivery should take care of any dust. Now that I have seen the vehicle, want it to be delivered immediately

Thanks for posting this.

I went for 3rd servicing of my 1.3 with the same clunking noise problem. Initially the Pasco folks could not diagnose it. So I showed them your post, after which a MUL engineer examined and ordered for a replacement of the "dead axle". The part was not available in stock and should be in tomorrow / day after.

Can you post a copy of the bill or share the part number that got replaced in your car ?

Thank You
