hrag you can change the OVRMs of the new indigo with the old one but changing the tail lamps is not a direct fit as the new ones are bit bigger in length.

Thanks D.V.R. That's a shame because the older tail lamps looked great.
I'm almost decided on the Indigo CS but if I do go in for the Indigo LX, I will keep your point in mind.

I'm not very sure since the design "looks" different. I did fit the (oldest) Indigo non-motorized clear lens headlamps on my Indica at the 82K mark.

Default Indigo CS - TDi vs DICOR

I have heard from many people (including some Tata mechanics) that Tata's TDi engine is much better than the Dicor. As far as i understand, Dicor is supposed to be the more modern and better engine (CRDI).

coming to Indigo CS, is it worth paying around 50K more for the Dicor LS, esp considering that the rest of the car is same as the TDi LS?

Can anyone here throw light on the major differences in parameters like cost of maintenence, FE, NVH, torque etc of the two engines?

this is just my opinion its for you to take it or leave it,

the TDi engine is less complex, simpler and is just a turbo addition to the previous engine that has been around for so long, and tata has had time to rectify all the problems all these years on this engine and is way refined now.

the dicor is yet to go through all this and can turn out to be any way good or bad, so if you want utility and less hassles go the tdi or try the dicor.

I don't know if this will answer your question but I am not considering the DICOR option for the Indigo / CS because:
1. there is no substantial difference in power and torque figures to warrant 50K extra
2. my trusted service advisors at Concorde Motors, ECR, Madras, tell me not to consider the 1.4 DICOR. If they give me a go-ahead, I would probably start looking for justifications for 50K extra.

My only "situation" may be reversing with a foggy rear glass but I'll have to manage the way I do right now. Thanks again.
Glad to have been of any assistance. Go for the CS-TDI and put the 50K difference to use by opting for power windows, alloys and yes - good ICE!

Sorry to disappoint you but my enthusiasm lies elsewhere. ICE will be transferred from my current Indica to the new car. Definitely no power windows as after market fitment. Alloys - yes, this is a good suggestion.

50K buys a lot of diesel.

Hi Hrishi,

> not considering the DICOR option for the Indigo / CS because:
> 1. there is no substantial difference in power and torque figures to warrant
> 50K extra

The DICOR turbo boost is available from about 1400RPM itself and is much more driveable in town /city conditions. But the turbo kick of the TDi is absent in the DICOR. It is much more linear.

The XL that I drove certainly was noisier than my TDi at all speeds.

The TDi would be much more cost effective to maintain than the equivalent DICOR. The TDi definitley would be much more tolerant to the different grades of diesel dispensed by the various pumps.

DICOR is supposed to be one up on the TDi on the mileage front, but no personal experience. The XL was giving similar mileage as my TDi for my school runs, If I remember correctly.

Looks like Tata Motors has hiked prices in the last week. When checked on August 11th, ex-showroom Bangalore for LS TDi was 4,41,630.00
Today it is 5,07,957.00

The Indigo LX costs 5,47,431 ex-showroom Bangalore now compared to 5,45,986 on August 11th.

Making hay while the sun shines?

Edit: at today's prices, the Indigo LX is suddenly making more sense to me. 40K extra for the bigger boot, rear defogger, power windows and central locking. The last 3 being factory fit.

Mods - sorry missed the 20 minute mark

Indigo prices Bangalore

Indigo
GLS-BS III Rs. 4,71,728/-
GLX-BS III Rs. 5,01,707/-
LS-BS III Rs. 5,07,957/-
LS DICOR-BS III Rs. 5,35,202/-
LX-BS IIIRs. 5,47,431/-

Indigo CS
GLE BS III Rs.374,004.00
LE BS III Rs.413,584.00
LS BS III Rs.507,957.00
CS LS DiCOR BS III Rs.535,202.00
GLS BS III Rs.393,322.00

Why would anybody buy the CS when you get the Indigo diesels at the same price? I think there is a bug in their site (FIAT collaboration ).

Hi Peets, If you really don't need the boot, maybe you ought to try out the fabulous looking Indica Vista? Take her for a test and post your updates.
