Build quality means that the car will remain rattle free for a longer time.
Poor fit and finish means the quality of plastics, and the way things are put together.

you can better go for Emotion.
BTW what color have u selected.
The price difference is no longer so marginal. There is a cash discount of 21K on the dynamic pack, while the price of emotion has been increased by 10K and no discounts. So the net difference is over 50K. And 70K with the dynamic + free stereo.

Plus, the 21K discount is till 25th only. Also, the discount is on Dynamic Pack. Nothing on Emotion. So, i will have to go for the Dynamic Pack Diesel only.

PS: Just test drove it again during lunch time. Its regal. I likes it...

wise choice. If you have a budget, and such discount is there, Dytnamic is the way to go. Even active is a good choice compare to other cars in the same price range.

Well, the palio is currently up for sale. Hopefully, it will be around for the photo-shoot.

Do remember to take a copy of the PDI checklist from T-BHP before the delivery.

We will wait 15 days for the pictures before we start pressurizing you!

Got a word from the showroom. The car has arrived at the warehouse. Tentative delivery date is next wednesday.


Woooohoooo.....


One quick question. Has anyone tried to retro fit the driver armrest onto a Dynamic version? I found it very addictive, during the TD's....

Cheers,
Hrishi
