Here i would also have to mention that the FORD showroom staff at Vizag were pretty damn professional as well and gave us a very good demo and test drive experience) and also considering that scross is infact a segment higher than ecosport, we booked a 1.3 ZETA in white.

Im looking at paying about 7L downpayment and take the rest 5L on loan. NEXA says SBI is the best bet which i might want to agree on.
That is exactly what I meant when I told you that after TD-ing both cars, you would automatically go with the S-Cross for all the reasons you mentioned. I would like to also advise you to go for the Alpha variant if your budget allows for it. With bi-xenons, leather upholstery, auto-headlaps & auto IRVM you would be getting all of your money's worth. It is next to impossible to replicate the feel of Alpha's leather-steering. I drive a Zeta and would have gone for the Alpha if I could stretch my budget. Also, your math seemed to be a bit off there. The 1.3 Zeta costs 11L OTR instead of 5+7 that you mentioned. 😁

Sunejarahul. India is not Delhi alone.

There are many places in India where 1.3 Zeta costs close to ~12 Lakhs. One among them is Bangalore. It all depends on the regional road tax and other levies.

ZETA 1.3 is coming around for 11.7 on road in vizag. (ex showroom 9.93L)
While the alpha 1.3 is coming around for 13.2L onroad due to having more than 10L ex showroom price which is attracting 14% tax plus Tax at source as well.

I would have gladly extended for the 1.6 Delta which was at 12.8L OTR if only 1.6 still came out in lower variants.

For 1.3 alpha, extending by almost 1.5L for auto wipers, headlights, irvm and leather wrapped steering wheel did not make sense.
Also, NEXA promised me seat covers at a low price anyways. i would probably get the auto irvm as well sometime later if i really do need it.
Auto headlamps and auto wipers arent my thing anyways so wouldnt be missing them.


Projectors though yeah. but cant be spending 1.5L just for them.

Hello guys,

I have installed XP Micro projectors in S-Cross and have written a thread about it.

Update on the squeaking sound from the driver seat base. Kept the seat height adjustment to the minimum and checked. Sound totally disappeared in all the conditions of sharp turn / running over bad patches / speed breakers. So, the culprit is height adjustment mechanism.

Now need to check whether the sound comes only in the max height position or any positions in between also.

Thanks for the update Dr. Naren. Incidentally, based on your reference, I spoke to Rajat a couple of days back. He mentioned that you have picked up a pair of micros for your S-Cross

I've narrowed down on the Mini D2S 4.0 Square, which along with the classic, can apparently be retrofitted without having to drill any holes or cut wires. I was given to understand that an S-Cross Zeta was recently fitted with a Mini Super V2.

Planning to speak to Shyam later in the day. Xenon Planet is offering a stage-3 kit (55W ballast) at a discount for a limited period.

I have S-Cross Alpha variant and was not very comfortable about opening headlights for replacing stock projector. XP Micro was the perfect upgrade for me and I have got a very good high beam now.

Mini D2S 4.0 with XP 55W fast start up ballasts would be really good. It has very good build and well centred hotspot which results in a very strong high beam. Looking forward for your S-Cross with new eyes .

Dr.Naren, what is the cost of the upgrade. I will be getting my 1.3 Aplha soon. How does this affect warranty and what is additional load on the battery?

There is no cutting of any stock wires and warranty would be intact. It doesn't need much power and wouldn't put any extra load on battery.

XP MICRO full kit with XP 35 fast start ballast : 16K

I went for regular ballasts and saved around 2K.

My wife called the white car "a blank canvas", you can customise the exteriors very easily if the base is white. So, since white is not your preferred colour, push the dealer for more discount, and put the money aside for 2-3 years later when you can blow it all up for some fantastic custom paint job.

The final discount the dealer is offering for a White 1.6 is 50 k (30 K Cash + 20k accessories). For an Alpha variant, I don't see any useful accessories apart from rear spoilers. So I asked the dealer to give me a 50k Cash discount .

The RM mentioned that he can push for 40k cash discount and 10K worth free accessories.

Meanwhile, based on the VIN number, the vehicle is August manufactured. Do three months in the stockyard a deal breaker?

3 months should not be a big problem. Just check once thoroughly using the PDI check list and you should be good to go. Which NEXA is this? You can probably look at getting the car cover and the illuminated door sills, the door sills are something I wanted but it slipped my mind during delivery.

Or see if instead of the 10k accessories, he can give you extended warranty for at least a year, if possible two, free or at minus the 10k cost

I have a good collection of Songs in my 120GB Ipod as well as a separate collection in my USB flash drive. Connecting both into the USB port in S-Cross was an issue as the car came with only one port.

Received a 4 port USB hub today and now I can connect both flash drive and ipod together without the pain of removing one and connecting other.

Thanks. I was planning to do the team-bhp PDI. The offer is from NEXA OMR. I am already getting the Tyvek cover and non-illuminated door sills as part of the basic accessory kit . Also, I am a not a big fan of illuminated doors sills and prefer them to be muted and not flashy.

Extended warranty is a good option . I had initially planned to take the extended warranty along with the first service and can probably push for it instead of accessories.

Was there any oil leak from shock absorbers? I had similar problem in my SX4 and Maruti replaced rear shocks under warranty.
