Ignis is a new modern platform for sure, safer, and more efficient and will give less fatigue.

Ignis has 4 cyn engine vs 3 in wagon-r.

I've been offered a discount of 25,000/- too. But expected more in the 40,000 range as there is Christmas as well as the year end. Should I wait for the end of the month and then book or 25,000 is the best that they can do? Anyone else getting a better deal anywhere then let me know please. Is it true that NEXA cars cannot be given large discounts as per Maruti instructions?

Ignis is not that fast a seller by usual Maruti Standards, so there is very high possibility that you will find 2016 models even in January-Feb. To make sure, just ask for the current stock and its manufacturing date. Unless you are very particular about the Variant+color combo, I would suggest waiting so that you can get discounts higher than current one.

I'm flexible with Delta and Sigma variants. I visited the stockyard and found about 20 Ignis vehicles over there. Tried my best but 25k is all they are offering as discount right now. Should i try again next week before Christmas or after Christmas? I dont want to show them much interest or they would not offer any further discounts.

You can try asking for the approx manufacturing month. If its anything more than one month old, rest assured and just tell them to call you if they have any better deals. I'm not sure about the dealer situation in your town, but if you can find another dealer nearby, especially one willing to match the current offer, you can surely get a better deal. Since you may be buying a Sigma variant, I'm sure you would end up putting some accessories in it(it is a bit barebones), they may be more willing to discount accesories such as mats, painting door mirrors, music system etc.

Booked Ignis Zeta version. Red and black dual tone. Planning to take delivery next week. I have few questions:
1. Will upgrading the tyre to 195/15 cause issues with tyre touching the body/suspension?
2. Which is the best tyre to upgrade to keeping comfortable ride quality as the priority?
3. How much can I expect for ecopia tyres as exchange value?

My recommendations below:
Q1: 195/60R15 should work fine on the Ignis without touching the body/suspension but IMHO the stock tires are decent.
Q2: I would recommend Michelin Primacy 3ST
Q3: If you are exchanging in Bangalore call and check the exchange rates with Millivisions (Krumbigal Rd, Bangalore) or Sai Iyengar And Sons (Lalbagh Road, Bangalore). These two would offer the best rates in my experience.

Request to owners of Alpha variant,
1. Please take a snap of the location of puddle lamps present on doors and post it.
2. Also post the working, as in a night time snap.

Are they useful?

I have Baleno Zeta and it does come with puddle lamps from factory. Maruti doesn't even mention about them in Brochure .

1. Posted pics
2. Yes, they are useful. I would prefer brighter white led bulbs instead

Thanks. I was asking about it because I'm planning a retrofit in my Brezza. I did something similar but with much better light intensity in my WagonR. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/hatchb...ml#post3712564 (Maruti WagonR over Hyundai Eon? EDIT : Bought WagonR with ABS / Airbags)
So looking at all possibilities and the decide on which one to procure and start working on.
