Too bad. I missed the change by a few weeks. I thought I was lucky that the dealer offered MUL stereo free.
Is there something i can do? CAn I ask the dealer now? Will i look stupid if asked them to give me the BC Mirrors and handles free:(

I saw the SX newspaper ad in Deccan chronicle, but nowhere it says MGA free accessories. In which newspaper you saw it.

AutoCar India. It's probably a typo anyway.

The only music I enjoy is the sweet neighs of the hundred odd horses under the hood.
Good luck with your delivery. Are u getting the Zxi? ensure you get Mats that fit the car and not some baleno/esteem stuff thrown in.
The Stock ICE fits so well in the dash that many wont have the heart to throw it out. Anyways, its your money . Good luck

Venkatesh,
Which mat did Khivraj gave you, esteem ? Because they gave me SX4. I was not sure whether it was SX4, but in one of the mat there was a label mentioned as "SX4"

For the convenience of enjoying the car by taking delivery within 10 days of launch, I think this is the price we pay - mats not fitting in.

Anyway I don't mind spending on it since it is worth. Did you guys buy it (if not free) from dealer or outside? How much did it cost?

I was given free mats. Was not even asked to buy it. The sales guy said.. dont worry about Mats we will give you those by default. Naturally I did not. It is only normal to expect to be provided mats that fit. I did not expect anything more than smelly rubber mats. But evn that did not fit.
God only knows from which cars these come. THe only imprint is on the boot mat and it says Maruti 1000 !!!!!
The rest dont have anything. Given their large sizes only two Maruti cars qualify the esteem and the Baleno. All said and done my first service is due and am getting ones that fit.
Here is another question. The sales guy told me not to do Under Chassis 3M rubber coating as the car comes with this by default and i can do this after two y ears. Is this so? My gut feel says the guy is bluffing and Maruti does not do U.C rubber coating by default. What say you folks? I have peeked at the chassis and its all whitish not blackish like when it has a coating.
only the wheel wells have some kinda coating in the areas not covered by the plastic skirting
I did a body polish and am not happy with it either. I'm going to do a proper 3M job U.C and body protectant finish this time around . What say you folks?
