Its sad, but today I had to call the Maruti Regional office to check the status of my car and they told me that its still not on the production line and don't know when it will go there. So it could mean anywhere from 20 to infinite days for the car to come. I have already waited 2 months. Am not willing to wait more. So will move to another car. will start a thread for that.

Its sad, but i have to move on.

Same with me :(, I booked Beige ZXi on 11th June and still waiting for it. Last Sunday dealer told me that Beige has longest waiting but White/Silver can managed faster. Actually, one Silver was there two weeks ago but I want to go only for Beige. I'm little disturbed when dealer told me that it might take Aug end but ....what can I do ? When I tried to push him by telling that I can go for NHC or cancle my booking but he said I'm sorry but we are here to sell the cars and our money is also blocked. He also offered me modifed VXi with alloy wheels and integrated stereo but I was not interested.

Don't know what to do ...confused .

I have installed the MGA reverse parking 2 sensor on the Bumper.. it is very much useful while parking in the underground parkins.

Me too in the same boat. I am the next one to get Red color from the dealer, but he told that no car has been delivered from the factory and it may take 15 days to get the car despatched.

You can get it serviced with any authorized service center. Would recommend that you go to a dealer service center - not MASS.

I have installed the MGA reverse parking sensor that has 4 pods in the back. It gives the distance from the object in meters and audible sound that increases as you near it. Found it useful, it confirms your own assessment - which is important as well, since you should not depend only on it.

I wanna know if it is mandatory to get serviced with my respective dealer or can I choose any of the authorised Maruti service stations in Delhi? If yes, then any good and reliable names in South Delhi?

Hey nssrini, how much did you get the MGA parking sensor for? I ask my dealer and they say, it costs around 5K? (not sure if it has 2 or 4 pods) Which brand is it?

Mandrake, I can understand your situation and fury. I had been in the same boat. . Even I wanted a Red/Black color, but after threatening to cancel the booking (after 42 days), I got a White Zxi, the very color which I left out.. and had to be content with it as I desperately needed a car at that time (3 weeks back) and now enjoying every bit of it and quite frankly, I am quite liking the white color. But if you don't see getting it anytime sooner after that long wait, I guess you should do what your heart says. utlimately its just a car. and you will find many other alternatives. all the best

ITNerd - It was "Red Soul" (seems to be a manufacturer in bangalore) - model i think it is RSB4 - around 4K. It has 4 pods. Got it fitted with the dealer along with delivery

City is definitely a better car when it comes to interiors and refinement.
IMHO, if you're just looking at being driven around in the city from home to office and back, city will look better than SX4.

SX4 has a more powerful engine, its much better to drive(better steering and handling/better braking), has more ground clearance. It is also much safer. Safety features are something you can't feel during the test drive (unless you crash :-)), but they are important.

It also has more value per money, considering all the features thrown in. For eg., it has an integrated stereo, stereo remote on steering wheel, etc.,

Add to this the availability of Maruti's service in all corners of India. Now if you're going to stay in the city most of the times, this does not apply to you.

Its finally upto your usage and your liking.

Hi mandrake, Could you give me contact of Maruti Regional office? How do they check the status, is it with customer name or any booking number ? Thanks

Default Fuel and Trunk Spoiler

Which fuel r u guys using in your SX4? Premium or Normal? My dealer suggests premium, what do u guys say...
Also, did anybody put a rear Trunk Spoiler in your vehicle? Does it add a sporty look at all?
