Zaks, I didn't do pre-registration check on my car, nor I have heard any BHPian doing it either, I don't think it is required, however if you are really concerned, goto the dealership & have a look at your Car, note down the Engine No & Chasis No etc, to ensure you get the same car.

I disagree. You may not have done it, but many team-bhp'ians do, and it is specifically mentioned in the team-bhp article on buying a car.

Zaks, this is from the thread:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/buying...heck-list.html
"Before Registration:

We recommend visiting the dealerships stockyard and checking your car prior to registration. Once it is registered in your name, there is little you can do. Check the car manufacturing month/year, especially when buying in the first quarter of any year. Fiat India was notorious for selling cars that have been manufactured up to 18 months earlier. Ascertain that the year of manufacturer is current. Also check for any repair jobs / body damage; damage to some cars is inevitable in transit and most repair work is glaringly obvious."

Thats what companies say. They usually use the 'safety' word when people say its a design flaw causing discomfort (as in travelling with ac off)

Bottle and architect have explained nicely. The door has to give way for the wheel arch leaving no space towards the floor! To further substantiate what they have said-

Thanks for that explanation with pics !
I never got a clue why it is so but Now I know

Where should I look for the Chasis, engine number? Body damage-can you please tell me what all I should specifically check other than the exteriors?

Resale of Swift will be better as it has been around for some time as a premium petrol hatchback without any strong competition, later with the Fiat diesel engine it killed indica in the personal car space.Palio petrol 1.1 is grossly underpowered and Palio Sport 1.6 has high power but poor mileage figures that too with pathetic Fiat service from TVS before there was no chance of a good resale value for sure.Everything has changed now with the Palio back in competition with vengeance and a new lease of power with the revolutionary 1.3 Multijet Diesel engine with high power and mileage, all of this backed by the Tata Service network which empowers to indicab and Sumo’s on Indian roads.Swift is beaten badly on space by Palio especially rear seat and boot space, the build quality of a palio is any day superior as you feel very safe inside like a SUV.


Palio lacks the great modern interiors as compared to Swift however for anyone who is a seasoned driver a good engine, great handling and high mileage makes more sense than awesome interiors to show your friends, family and neighbours.





Palio Multijet is the best Hatchback on Indian roads with the awesome power, rock solid road grip and awesome mileage that too at petrol small car prices





Tata Motor dealers and service centers have assured that they got personnel trained officially on the Multijet engine by Fiat India to handle the new technology engines so no need to worry about service now however you may meet your office Sumo or indicab driver there as well if that hurts your status and ego

Go for Multijet

Hmm.. Don't know what to say. That guy from Concorde whom I had spoken to earlier said that it would not be possible to do it yesterday(his promised date) and would send the car for registration today and also that I can come and have a look if I wanted. I called up today and guess what, he has gone on leave for 3 days . So that means he has taken me for a ride. He didn't even inform me that he would be on leave when I called him yesterday. Now I think I had enough and have half a mind to just go and cancel the booking.
These junk heads are totally unprofessional in their ways.
