I had made the booking on 17th Jan 2016 and was promised 4-5 months, which was later revised to 5-6 months in early April. However, currently there are no updates. I settled for Ciaz VXI+ and will look for the other small car next year.
Woops! Thats tough. We booked a CVT on 19th Jan and a delivery period waiting of about 3 to 4 months. Early April we were told to expect the delivery by April end to latest by May 5th. Got a call on 2nd May that the car was dispatched and on the way. Now awaiting delivery which is expected to be before the next weekend ie 14th May.

The experience with the dealership Nexa Andheri east has been OK so far.

Thanks for sharing this. Was looking at a boot organizer for my cars, there are similar ones available at Amazon for much less price, but with really bad feedback (poor quality of materials). Curious to see how good this one would be. Will see if I can check this out in person, the next time i visit the MASS

The latest MGA brochure has all the accessories covered, which a customer can ever need. A bit expensive, but a very comprehensive collection.

Should I attach all the images that I had taken??

If you could do that, it would be quite useful.

Attaching the images of the brochure I had taken. Sincere apologies for the poor quality of the images- it was taken in a poorly lit area, and attempting to take images with flash didn't help either due to the reflection.

Click to ZOOM for better readability of the part numbers and prices.

After lot of thought process i finally installed gear lock in my Baleno.
I was waiting for the official accessory from nexa. But at last my RM said, sir there is no gear lock as an accessory and asked maruti to remove from the site.
Then i called the Autocop and got it installed today. Now i will have some peace of mind.
Below are some pics

Congratulations, wish you a satisfying time with your new ride. I feel that waiting times are not consistent and MSIL follows some sort of quota system for each dealer/region. Otherwise NCR and Mumbai would have got most of the cars and other regions very few.

Nope bro.

Interestingly, the S Cross Zeta does come equipped with cruise control. Maruti has made some choices this way. S Cross Zeta misses out on leather wrapped steering which the Baleno Zeta gets.

Was getting a consistent FE of plus 16 in MID during the run-in period of my petrol Alpha. (Was driving very sedately in that period, never crossing 2000 rpm).

After the first service, the FE in the MID has suddenly dropped drastically to below 10! I have been driving a bit spiritedly after the first service (within 3500 rpm), but i don't see that to be the reason behind such a huge fall in FE. I have around 2500 kms on the odo currently and the FE is almost same in both MID & tankful method.

Anybody else faced similar FE changes after 1st free service. I know that the first service is basically just a visual inspection rather than a proper service, but i fail to understand the drop in the FE.
