Congratulations on your new Chevy Beat. Nice review and pictures.
The only grouse i have with my Chevy is A.S.S. That apart it has been a clean sailing experience.
I hope Chevy A.S.S. doesn't let you down.
Happy motoring !!

Sweet looking car.

Please post your mileage too.

For seat height, you can try using a firm flat pillow (the ones used for chairs).....other option is to put spacers under the front seat and raise it by 1/2 inch or so.

Congrats for the beauty and welcome to Beat Club.

I own a Petrol Beat LT and I would say the horn is very louder. You please stand out in front and ask someone to press the horn. No idea if diesel have a different horn.

Cheers!

Congrats mate and welcome to the club. Nice photos and do keep updated. Also share your experience with the dealership and service in Bangalore.

Alloys will change the entire stance of your car, consider an upgrade.

Beautiful pictures! Beat looks very good in this color and your pictures are just superb. Since you takes pictures so well, we would love some more interior snaps - especially of the dash and backseat!

If you like it, nice seat covers can break the grey monotony inside the cabin - my friend had a good set of contrasting seat cover and it enhanced the looks inside, the cabin felt airy/spacious.

Love this car. Happy driving!

Congratulations. Great pictures. The car is looking real good.

Had a test drive of the car a few days back and as you correctly mention the OEM speakers were a big let down in the LT version. Would advise you to go for a better set of after market speakers, that would surely make the music sound a lot better.

During this visit to the showroom , saw a LS model in the showroom which had super cool alloys, set of great speakers and the roof rail attached and to be honest the alloys gave it a much bolder look, so in case you plan for an upgrade do consider a set of alloys.

Thanks Ambat. I ven't found any good looking ones to my taste. But if I find something impressive, sure will change it. Some how i like these discs as they look different and that's why I never had any thoughts. Now that many have asked me, I should consider. I like the OEM ones too.
