Default Interesting Car Related Contests!!

Internet has become a new medium for promotion in the auto sector. Many companies are coming up with contests to catch the eye balls. Have started this thread to discuss some interesting contests u might have come across. One contest i vividly rememebr is of Mahindra Xylo. they were doling out free cars. Another contest which i came across yesterday is on Manza. Wish they had shown the car as well. Just the steering is visible. I filled in my responses.. lets see.
Manza - Look forward to a new level of indulgence

What other such contests do you remember?

I know when Ritz was to be launched, they had this puzzle to be solved on thier teaser site before the launch. It was quite a game for my little one and he had all the fun solving that puzzle.

I like a fool signed in for all the Xylo contests, they did not even bother to announce the results. So I stopped signing up for it.
If you watch their website they have new contests every week.

Default Manza Contest

Hey i got a mail from the Manza team since i had participated in their contest. 'What is my definition of Indulgence in space' is the new question.

I guess two more questions are in queue before the launch.. Did anyone else get the mail too?

Yeah I got that mail too. But what exactly are they looking for when they say 'Indulgence in Space'. I am slightly confused as to what can make an impact.

Any contest run by Mahindra is to capture data for their Club Mahindra telecallers.

Any proof to justify your claim?

^^ I feel that any contest run by any company will have one main motive: To create awareness of Brand /Product. But most of them do use the collected data for targeted advertising.
