Yes. Very happy. Talking about the snob value, you are right. Actually during my recent Chennai trip, on the highway many a Swifts, Xylo's, i20's could not bear that a Vista is overtaking them and they would try very hard to come ahead. There was a brand new Swift and he felt mightily depressed that he was not able to overtake. What he did not realize is that we both had the same engine with the same tuning. Seems like he did not see the Vista vs Swift open challenge ads.

About the rev happy part, am not sure as we both have little different engines and I have not really tried to push it hard in 2nd, 3rd gears like I used to in my petrol car.

The engine is the same except for the FGT in your Vista and VGT in the Manza, I am still undecided on wheather i should go for the Projector H:L mod or get a Race-chip for the engine The website claims an increase to 114bhp

Well yours is a 90BHP and mines a 75. Plus the torque is also different.

I had called the Pete's guys a month back and they said that the on the Vista, the power would go as high as 90BHP on P2 mode with a 20% drop in fuel efficiency.

Gaurav, Wishing you many many happy miles in the Vista.

I have been your passenger in this car and its one of the best cars Tata has made. The Vista is the perfect VFM hatch. Lovely color.

Manish. Will surely upload a daylight shot for you. Have not taken it yet. Will do so. The logos are done by them. They do it for all manufacturers.

Work has kept me busy for the last month. Will get a snap tomorrow.

10 k will take some time. There is a 4k road trip (really fat budget)which has been planned, however it's gonna happen after summer. So the car will cross 10k then.

Some nice shots of the Headlights and the Fog Lamps. I call them the "Quadraeyes"

Tata Vista Refresh -Young & Strong - Update - Sold @ 80,000 kms-quadraeyes.jpg

Another nice pic is that of the full centre console. The layout is neat and all controls are aptly placed.

PS: Sorry for the bad picture quality as they are from mobile cam.

car looks good in the in the night with the lights, wish i had the budget to go for this model. I am also planning to buy the Vista quadrajet but would be going for LS model as its in my budget. Also would need to take a call before 15th March, as the dealer has clearly communicated that current price stands for bookings prior to 15th. Post 15th there would be a change in pricing and he feels the cost would go up by 10 to 15 k.
