I have completed ~20,000KMs / 1 Year and the tyres are as good as new. No signs of ageing / wear and tear. I do not think the tyre needs the kind of verbal abuse it faced on many online forums.
Agreed!!

I am also running on stock tyres. These tyres have good off road grip and decent enough on roads. I just find the tyre noise on higher side. And Yes, I can definitely live with stock JK tyres. Even my SX4 had stock JK tyres and I had issues after 75 percent of tyre wear.

Putting rest to speculations of pessimists thinking MS will axe the DDiS320!

Maruti Suzuki resumes imports of the 1.6MJD engines, speculated to make debut in India in Vitara ( Grand Vitara) too. More to come

Wow ! Thanks Volkman10 for this piece of information! Its good that such a fabulous engine is given fitting treatment by Maruti Suzuki. Engine is set to roar further with blasting performance!

This will allay market fears and hopefully sales of 1.6 would pick up due to this.

Wow!!! Good news. Maruti will not give up easily and succumb to the pessimists

They have made a somewhat successful entry in the higher segment of cars and if they discontinue the very first product (320DDiS) in the first year itself, that goes as a sour point in their track record.

I said "That is exactly what it was. What about my Nexa card? How long should I wait for it" Then he says "Sir, I forgot to add your details into the system for the card. I will do it right away. Sir, next time please call me directly for any concerns".

And then I received the card in 6 days at home. So much for a premium service.
Has your experience been bad all round or just in the case of your NEXA Card? Mine has always been the same be it the car's registration to changing the number plates and also for the RC card. Seems all the premium-ness is limited to the pre-sales period.

Folks, is there any confirmation on whether maruti is updating the ecu software to reduce turbo lag in 2015 models of 1.6?

Very good move!! Finally after 9 months, Maruti has resumed import. Few posts back I had expressed my opinion about why Maruti is not importing the engine even with surge in sales for 1.6 S-Cross.

Maruti exports S-Cross to Indonesia. Do they get 1.6 diesel also?

Nope. Indonesia is a petrol driven market. S Cross 1.5L (P)is launched there and we will get it in 2017.
Same is the case with Vitara Brezza petrol variant.

Hi Dr.Naren! Take a look , my zeta with Team BHP sticker !!

Had a 200 Kms trip yesterday on NH-1. Car sprints nicely and has superb braking. I also think that in this car during drive I feel more sleepy compared to my Alto K-10 car with all health parameters remains unchanged . Is it due to S-Cross comfort? Also I missed the cruise control so as to keep maximum possible legal speed otherwise speed keep varying 5-10 Kmph easily manually.

Hi Sip,
Yes. S-Cross is much more comfortable to drive as well as in backseat. My wife used to have very terrible headaches whenever we used to go long drives in our Alto K10 (2012 model). But, it was not the case even once after switching over to S-Cross.
We had quite a number of long drives in S-Cross (Twice Bangalore - Mumbai, Bangalore - Thrissur and Bangalore - Mookampika). I also never felt the tiredness in any of the long drives.

By the by, is your registration number a temporary one? It appears to be a different pattern as a third alphabet (T) before the number.

Your car looks awesome with the stickers.. Me too have the TBHP sticker (Got BHP?) in the same position

Nice buddy!! LTD sticker is meant for 1.6 S-Cross. I used that sticker on my other cars before I bought S-Cross .

I too had Alto K10 ( Old model). I liked that car only for performance. S-Cross feels effortless on highways. Driver would be enjoying the Humongous Torque and rear passengers feel home at back seat, thanks to well reclined seats and mature suspension setup.

I have used cruise control only 3 or 4 times. Never got many chances to use that feature on our roads.

Would love to have TBHP stickers. Where to get them? Seen a lot of these but never asked where to find them. The adhesive must be really good on these, I assume.

It's a set of 13 stickers, but I got 14-15 stickers in the set

I have April 2016 S-Cross 1.6. According to my SA, Maruti has fine tuned the map in my car/recent batch of 1.6. I asked a service guy today if there is any update for old batch and he said did not receive any circular about it. I wonder why Maruti can't provide it to previous owners. Also those who have got 1.6 recently have said in this thread that they do not find turbo lag a big problem.
