This one is supposed to be a treasure hunt. God knows what it is about. All i know for sure is that there is a 'Free Lunch'. Now I know there is no such thing called a free lunch. So, I really wonder what Maruti is upto with this so called treasure hunt. They have already bagged us as customers and what are they gaining by doing this Promo kinda stuff??

Probably to show that there are too many SX4 customers . Only way to show that is to get all of them and put them on road in one shot.

It seems to be a good trick.

Came across this phrase from a friend "where have all the men gone" - to repair their SX4s'

PS: All Sx4 owners ..take it as a joke.

One of our neighbours which is an all women household bought the NHC over the SX4 because they found the SX4 too manly

Yeah? it is indeed LOUD. i don't know about Manly.. but is not the SX4 tag line like 'Men are back'?
Yeah NHC is something women will drive. Some vehicles "I" found to be unsuitable if a woman (girly types especially). Like the Bolero, Safari, Ambassador, Sumo, Innova, Enfield Bullet, Qualis and SX4 of course to name af few.

I doubt if you can fit parking sensors without drilling holes in the bumper. Dont be concerned about drilling. But ensure that your sensors get fitted with body coloured stickers. Otherwise they stick out like a sore thumb. ALso there are a few types of reverse parking sesnors. TV camera types, rear view mirrror with bar indicator types and MGA type single bar indicator on the A pillar types. So far i found the in-rear view mirror bar indicator type RPS to be good (check out Gopinath's pics for samples).

Yes Anish, Venkatesh is right without drilling the bumper parking sensors installation is not possible (as far as I know). I paid 3,750/- for rvm display, but later I replaced with LCD Panel, I would say its a must for SX4.
