Also read the following post from another thread.
this is also similar to buying a house vs renting. Lot of ppl will tell you that its cheaper to rent than buy a house for self-use. but we still buy the house.

Default Black and with 7 Seater: An Innova E Series? I Saw one

Is an Innova E Series available in Black and with 7 Seater?


I see everytime (with matt black bumpers) parked at Begumpet Airport on my way to drop my wife at work.

Actually I want my innova with the following with the mods:

E Series Diesel
Power Steering (After Fitment)
Single AC
7 Seater (After Fitment?)
Plush Velvety Seat Covers (Toyota) (After Fitment)
Sun roof (After Fitment)
Black Color (Spl Order)
Long lasting and Effective Foggies
Beige Dashboard
After Market Power Window (Only front doors)
Matt Bumpers (Becos I take my car everywhere)
15" or 16" Alloys with wide tyres (as wide as Merc C Class ones) Pls suggest specs... will it be 195/50/R16 or 200/55/R15 or something?

I dont want ABS, Rear wiper, Defogger, OE Stereo etc.

Pls guide on costs.

Bottomline... " Given my perf for not wanting ABS, Rear wiper, Defogger, OE Stereo, colored bumpers etc., will I be better off not buying the V Series?

Look at the g1. I dont think you can get power steering in the e. If your not gonna have people in the back seats then you dont need the dual ac. For 15k you will only get a basic sunroof so be prepared to spend more. In my opinion only the g4 and the v are value for money. You should personally sit in all the models and them see what features you need and dont need and make a decision.

Will turn out costlier then how much a G version would cost you.

Quote:
7 Seater (After Fitment?)
Will cost around 60k

Quote:
Sun roof (After Fitment)
40k for the automatic one.

Quote:
Black Color (Spl Order)
Toyota doesnot take special orders. I wanted white in V, they dont make and so they wont make.

Quote:
Long lasting and Effective Foggies
Stock Toyota ones will be long lasting and effective, around ~18k

Quote:
Beige Dashboard
Aftermarket will cost around 10-40k depending on what exactly you want

Quote:
After Market Power Window (Only front doors)
Xenos makes, around 8k

Stock C Class comes with 225 nowadays, whats the relation of Innova having tyres as big as C Class or something? Stock Innova comes with 205/65/15, putting the above mentioned will hamper suspension. Also no tire comes in 200mm. If you want to upgrade to 16", then ideal upsize would be 225/55/16 or 225/60/15(i have these)

ABS, Rear Wiper, Defogger are for safety? You dont care about safety?

E is available with PS. It cost 7.5 L Ex-Delhi. Dealer will charge 40K for AC and 15k approx for body-colored bumpers and handles etc.

So approx total = 8.05L

I strongly suggest G1 instead of E, because G1 has already got few MODs you would like to do, buying G1 spec. you can save money instead of E.

About tyres stock tyres are good but if you need upgrade buy 225/60 R15 beyond that is not ideal for vehicle like Innova.

One should buy Innova for family/practicality rather than making it fancy/driver/racing specific car.

Converting between 7 and 8 seator would cost above 50,000/- if done at toyota showroom thats what they told me too, we should buy based on what we need instead of customizing.

Even I wanted V spec with White color or G1 or G4 with ABS but I waited for 2 years to realize Toyota is not going to come up with such options and settled for G3.

Regards,

Ravi.

Hey Tirthankar,
1st and foremost i would like to ask what purpose are you planning on buying an innova for?
If it's for daily driving and only you and your wife then i suggest you dont go in for it.
It is a wonderful car and almost sedan like to drive but Parking in a city will be a hindrance.

Anyways, awaiting your reply for it's usage pattern

Hi btirthankar,

> So, Does a Self Driven Innova really need a Double A/c Vent?

No.

> Inviting Comments...

Here goes!

I have had two vehicles which had double ACs - Safari and Innova.

I run all my vehicles with the AC on all the time. I don't even switch off the AC for that matter. In both the vehicles, the cooling without the rear unit on takes longer to cool optimally as it would have to cool all the volume inside the vehicle. The cooling with both the units on is distinctly better.

After a minute or so after the AC starts, I can make out the diiference and look for the rear AC switch.

Default Much Needed Toyota Innova Accessories that we dont get in India

Sharing some photos of Much Needed Toyota Innova Accessories that we dont get in India

Esp the Front and Rear Bumpers as show here. I am sure our accessories manufacturers can make one of these.



See the Rear Bumper Guard and Extended Tail Gate


See the Climate Control

These bumpers also have a step on rubber surface so don't get scratched. Can we locate one in India?
