Hi Sriky,

I felt copper looks stunning. Surprised to hear that it is in less demand. Are you sure?

lies lies, my NHC never gives more then 13 on mumbai-pune express highway (5 people+ luggage) (speed around 100kmph). its overall average for me is 13.

svel,

less demand? i never used those words. in fact copper is in most demand. but according to some other sources, they say white and silver are moving fast. black too. everyone has his own opinion (the dealers that is!) i ve seen copper on ndtv shown somewhere in rajasthan and its awesome to look at no doubt. but grey one is also good, and you can further spice it up with say stickers of fire blowing out in yellow that would look really cool on a grey car.

Yesterday I saw Beige SX4 going in front of me near dairy circle around 11am (first SX4 I ever saw on road, other than mine ). It looked fantastic especially in sunlight. I thought of going next to it to see who he is and to "Join the SX4 club" , but it went fast. Was it anyone in this forum?

That said, I suggest those who are waiting for delivery, Beige looks very good on road, you can consider this if not in list already...

Post some snaps of other colors as well, I am keen to see - bored with looking only my grey one .

Hey, I came to know thr' my friend that MUL has taken back 2 sx4 from the customers(after aaj tak report) about that AC is not cooling properly for shorter duration and for long distance travel it is much better than city.. MUL is analyzing the reason....

I will keep u update....

PS:- I am also waiting to get SX4...

I'm a anew member in this community...I booked a SX4 ZXi with Leather at RNS Yeshwanthpur, B'lore on 21st May. Color is Beige. When the booking was the done the guy at RNS told me that the booking period is 1 month. A few days back when I called up, he said the waiting time is 2 months...I'm surprised as how come from 1 month the waiting time has gone upto 2 months....Can somebody help me in getting a faster delivery....

@santosh - forget your car for one month buddy. after that they will call you automatically. mine is nearing one month, and i ll be getting maybe a grey by another week max. i missed the first grey, but this time i ll take whatever comes in.

@sudhir - 2 months is bulls*** unless there are more customers than you before you on the queue. why dont you ask mclaren's or memo's help on this forum to know the exact status of your delivery?

mclaren1885 seems to be knowing GM of RNS, ping/PM him...But, he must have been flooded with such requests so far, you can join the club.

Please refer my thread, http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ry-issues.html (sx4 delivery issues) - where you can find some known tips to track your delivery.

Key things you must do are: keep visiting them, shout at them, call them, go to escalation levels (manager of sales rep, etc) and so on - this seems to work pretty well.

Also, lodge a complaint in MUL's website, they would get back to you. Call their toll free (guess, 1800 1800 180) and complain.

Keep shouting at them, otherwise they will forget you.
