Nope, has inbuilt parking lights.
The bulbs for the fog lights are also 55w H3 bulbs; will post a picture of the lighting in a day or two.

Yup but they are different assemblies. One with integrated parking light which I have in my car, the other being the fog lights with angel eyes. Not on the same fog light.

Default SX4 Update!

Hi guys, there has been a small update to the 2009 spec SX4 (in addition to the flattened rear seat center armrest and rear-headrest mod which i have already mentioned about earlier in this very thread).

This small update is something to do with the keys of the car! Yes, now the SX4 ZXi variants come with remote central locking buttons integrated in the keyfob itself. Here are a couple of pics of the keyfob of the new SX4.

The one in top part of the picture is my 2008 SX4 ZXI key whereas the one below is a 2009 SX4 ZXI key!

Cheers

that's great, is it possible to get the same for existing key. I wish it was like the Fiat key which looks like a flash drive and the key can be retracted.

I am sure the remote buttons cannot be integrated into the old key! But one can always order a fresh set of keys from Maruti by submitting a written application saying that the original keys have been misplaced and thereby requesting them to make a new set of keys for your car by providing them the key number. And at the same time (i am not sure if its possible) you can request them to make the new keys just like the ones that come in the 2009 SX4/DZire etc with integrated remote buttons on the Keyfob itself.

I will try for something like this shortly. In the mean time do let me know if you manage to procure the new set of keys

Cheers

Whats wrong with Maruti? They have made changes to a model and aren't shouting about launching the "all new SX4"?

That is done only when there is a bumper style of a new sticker available. Features are not covered under 'all new' shouts!

The key fob is same as the ones available with the Dzire VXi,ZXi,VDi,ZDi models. Probably they are making the key design uniform for these models (which come with stock remote locking)

Doesn't the new key fob for the SX4 have a button for opening the boot, as in the Fiesta sxi?

I parked the car on thursday night at about 9.30 pm on the road outside my friends house in Kharghar. I come back at about 11.15pm and see this sight:

Car was given to Ratan Maruti today morning. They will put a new fender. Approximate cost at the moment is about Rs.7,500 to 8,500.

Sorry to see those pics, Amit. Do you know what caused it? To me it looks like some nitwit rammed your car while reversing---but hey, that dent is pretty high up---could it be a truck?

Oh My God..!!! that's bad, some drunken bugger must have done that, it hurts boss.

Hope there are no damages to the driver side door.

How much time they have quoted for delivering the car back ?
