Would you kindly post some pics of this setup?It will be highly appreciated.

Which one are you referring to? The auto window roll up unit goes inside the right side door pads and the rear view camera display unit is fixed on the rear view mirror.

As for me, the long term ownership report is just round the corner with my car about to complete 50,000 km and I going over 200,000km so far.

I was expecting something like this to come out from Maruti. What is surprising is that they have done this only for the petrol variant and not for the diesel one, which is what Amaze would be directly competing against.

Default Maruti launches limited edition Dzire Regal

Maruti has reacted quickly to the Honda Amaze's aggressive price by releasing a limited edition of the DZire called Regal. The new version also celebrates 5 years and many months on top of the sales charts. The DZire Regal is priced at Rs. 5.6 Lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and can be had only in the VXi Petrol spec.

Name:  Swift Dzire Regal.jpg

The DZire Regal comes with the following features:
  • Serene Blue paint shade
  • Integrated audio system
  • Faux wood finish interiors, and scuff plates on the doors
  • Art leather seat covers and a leather clad steering wheel
  • Silver front grill. Fog lamp surrounds. Body side graphics
  • Silver Wing mirrors
  • Reverse parking sensors

The car is otherwise mechanically identical to the regular Dzire. The DZire has been a smash hit for Maruti (and profitable too), outselling hatchbacks like the Swift and Wagon R in the month of March. The DZire sold 20,078 units last month compared to the Swift's 19,654 units and the Wagon R's 14,681 units.

While the launch of the Amaze poses a threat to the DZire, Honda's limited production capacity means that Maruti would still be able to sell as many as it can make till 2014 (when Honda's capacity doubles).

^^ This is what happens when one reacts without giving things a proper thought.:-


1) Available only in petrol, where as the main competition(as it is evident from the sales chart) to the DZire is going to be from the Amaze Diesel.

2) Somehow Maruti has found a way to make the Special Edition worse than the standard edition. Light Blue + All that gopping amount of Chrome

It smells of "Oh crap Amaze is here" written all over it.
Instead of providing useless accessories, reduce the price. That is what will attract a buyer the most !

Here is another question and I apologize for posting so many questions on this forum already.

I am not able to stick any idols on the dashboard as the dealer had put some polish on it while delivering the car. He told me to wait for 10 days before doing anything, and its already been 3 weeks now and whenever I try o stick any idol with a double side tape on, it slips right off. Never had this issue on my Indica, but the surface is really smooth. What do the experts suggest I do?
