Default Re: Bought a LHD Maruti Swift AT in Costa Rica!

Hi again! Just to update the thread. Blue Maruti is just under 3000km. Still a joy to drive as ever. Went for the 2000 km service , basically a quick check up, no oil change yet (until 5K).

No complaints about the car at all. Upon reflecting I guess the only wish I would have is for it to be a little lower. Are lowering kits available in India or are the illegal? I guess comfort would suffer. I just get bothered somewhat by those huge wheel wells which are not present in the japanese Swift (due to 16 in wheels and lower stance).

I have been also looking at navigation units, for which I see 4-5 options in Amazon (gps, bluetooth, reversing camera, etc) for arpund 350-500 USD. They all state that they are for Swift 2011-2014. So I wonder if 2014 JP Swift dimensions are compatible with 2015 Maruti Swift dimensions.

We completed our first trip outside the metro area with Blue Maruti, a 2 hour drive to Poas volcano and sorroundings , up the hills we went and the car response was fantastic! No shame here, those high revs work wonders and we were leaving behind all kinds of cars.

I am starting work on my first travelogue regarding this trip. I leave you some preview pictures, also showing how I fitted my mother in law's wheelchair and of one of our other volcanoes: the Arenal.
