Thumbs up One more addition to the Spark's Lovers Group

I just Brought a New Chevy Spark 1.0 model base with Ac.
First i am thinking of getting PS model with power steering. Now i don't regret my decision. The car by default is super Light, so there aren't handling problems.

I brought it from Trump Motors, The only GM dealer in my City.
Here is a deal what i got:
Spark 1.0 Base model Red non-metallic 3,18,000/-OTR

i made some additions to this & got some discountscheers:
  • Body Color Bumper(front and rear), Body color Door Handles, Body color Rear view mirrors for 5,000/-. he asked 6000/- for this
  • Combined discounted price for Parcel Tray + Rear Spoiler: 5500/-
  • Gave a Discount of flat 15% on all accessions. so i brought Seat covers @1920/- with one year warranty.
  • Freebies: GM's Central Locking,Music CD,God Ganesha's Idol, a Tissue Box,mud flaps,steering cover,floor mats, Three year free service.Parts+labour
So the combined Damage was 3,30,000/- appox.
Took Finance from Reliance capital for 2,00,000/- for 60 EMI, which each EMI is of Rs. 4550/-.

All the rest amount goes from my Pocket :(


Please Post a Review Soon, as i get some time to write.

So what you say about the deal?
Please do comment on The Prices.

Thank You Guys!
Please do comment on prices

@smack_himanshu
Under this scheme you purchase your vehicle.
and Gm take full care of it. You don't have to incur any cost apart from fuel itself. rest will be borne by GM.

@Chevy_lover
Not yet, just clocked 110Km on ODO.
Actually, we are being extra protective.
and also, i plan a nice trip of around 500Km after the first service. before that she will be on short city trips.

@ethanhunt123
Yeah, sure will post them soon

Congrats on your new vehicle. GM has announced some anniversery discounts in the paper (TOI) recently. Did you get the vehicle under this scheme or it was purcahsed earlier itself? If earlier, I feel you have lost some money saving opportunity. Do post some pics.

[Update]
I asked my dealer about the current prices.
Sadly, The prices are slashed 2k from the what i got.
Whats more disappointing is, This was done very next after i took car Delivery.

some of My hard earned money gone to last.



are we trading stocks here?
