Hello All,

Great, last 2 months 4-5 Yetis addition on tBhp, I am sure the discount and the recent launch are making people appreciate Yeti more, does this mean if Skoda reduce the current price by 1.5L will it be selling more in market? I believe not, the price drop changes the perception of the people and make them think there is something wrong with the vehicle and that's why price drop, I have not see any vehicle sales picking with price correction!

I bought mine from Giriraj and there is a guy called Kaushal Tyagi there who heads corporate sales - you can get in touch with him and give my reference (Sameer Dass). We bought both our Yeti and Laura too through him.

All the best!

Thanks a ton - will do. By the way, is your Yeti's number HR26 XXXX-4601? Just a couple of hours after this post yesterday saw the Yeti on the expressway with a TBHP sticker...talk about coincidences...

Delivery promised within a week. But I am in no hurry. Will probably delay it by a few days. May visit the stockyard to inspect the vehicle either on Saturday or next week.

Any suggestions on which sun film to put on the Yeti ? And costs ? Narrowed down to vkool and Blaupunkt. I understand from google search that vkool interferes with gps signal any insights ?

Regards
Faraz

The chennai dealer has a 2011 model but only offering 75k off. Other dealers are offering minimum 2L off for 2011 models.

Yes it does, because it's a metallic film. Personal experience with VK70 on my Laura.

Get 3M's CR70. It's ceramic based and doesn't interfere with GPS.

Congrats and welcome to Skoda family.

Congrats! 2.25 discount is very good (pretty much the same I got). regarding sun film, I got CR 70. They are pretty much transparent and do a good job in rejecting UV rays and heat. Will recommend to look for it.
