Thank you,

Come-on, it is just matter of changing the wheel size in OM gear and that thing must have been taken care of my Maruti. Don't worry.

Default SX4 zxi Leather Option

Hello guys... has anybody bought the leather version? If yes, please can you comment on the quality of leather supplied by MUL? Also wish to know the color of leather seats as I believe that will be beige but someone on a different forum said they are supplying grey color as well!!!
I booked black zxi and grey seats will not match it. My sales agent is a big dumb and has no idea what color mine will be
Anyway, it's been 5 weeks so far since I've booked...

After long waiting of 3 months, yesterday I got my SX4 ZXi beige . I'll try to post few pictures and my experience very soon. For now only one word for SX4- Awesome. At the time of delivery odometer was showing 28 KM. Got 5 liter petrol free with it. Somehow sales person succeeded in selling me extended warranty of 1 year for Rs. 4K, not sure if it is really worth it or not. Today, I'm planning to checkout the seat covers ....I'm thinking of art leather, last month Bafna [Ghole Road] was quoting around 10-12k (Stanley PU ) + 1500 (fitting).

One tip for guys who are waiting for delivery of their car.
Fortunately I knew that waiting period could be long, so I did not clear my loan amount till I got chassis number and engine number, which you get once your car is allocated. I would strongly recommend the same to all buyers "Do not pay anything other than booking amount till you get Chassis and Engine Number".

I believe, silver and white should have faster delivery period. Dealer offered me silver once after 2 weeks but I denied.

Actually, VXi is available off the shelf (except some colours like Black, Beige, Azure Grey). The coveted colours are available in 3 weeks. The zxi is has a 3 month Waiting period.
There is a lot of bull given by the dealer. Before you put down the booking amount, make sure you befriend the sales person and ensure that he gives you a pragmatic picture. Ensure he wont cut you a raw deal by giving your car to someone else (they do all kinds of nasty stuff to make a few bucks more).
Good luck

Default took delivery of SX4 ZXI today

Hey All,

I've been following all the posts on this related to SX4 and they really helped me decide on the car. This is my second car. First one is 2002 Maruti Zen Lxi. My initial options were Hyundai Verna XXI , Maruti Suzuki SX4 Zxi and Ford Fiesta (Petrol) SXI.

Ordered SX4 ZXI (metallic supreme red) in the first week of September and got it delivered today (Around 15 days of wait time).
I bought it under my company lease plan. I had to constantly pester the finance team and the LeasePlan guys to get the wait time reduced.

Got Redsoul parking sensors installed (cost: Rs. 4950). Bought this from Mandovi Motors (JP Nagar). The dealer gave me floor mats.

The reading on odometer was 42 when I took the car.

Next on my list of accessories
Sun Control Film

Will update more running details/FE etc soon...

Thanks again for everyone who shared details and opinions about SX4. It definitely seems to be an awesome car. Can't wait to go on a long drive

Thanks,
Kiran
