Default Booked SX4/ZXi - Delivered 14th May 2008

After lots and lots of research, and 360 degree change in mind in last 6 months, finally I settled for SX4.

Vehicle I test drove:

1. Safari 2.2 EX

2. Indigo XL Dicor

3. Ford Fusion TDCI

4. Scorpio LX

All in diesel, In petrol I had only two options in mind City and SX4, so no point trying else and getting more confused when you are already confused to the neck.

As I have written the TD experience of all these vehicles in different threads I will not go for it again, In case you need to ask something specific, please reply.

Took three TDs of SX4 for ride, AC, pickup etc. And drove a friends SX4 once and found very much satisfied. Looks, GC, Features and decent ride had major influence on the decision. Though I will still rate NHC high on ride uality. But in SX4 I get alot for the money and its VFM.

There was alot of drama involved in booking and selling my Indica for Exchange scheme. Will put all in detail later.

Can not wait for my ride....

Thanks EDDY, lets catch up some time.

Its VIPUL Gurgaon, Silky Silver, 7.3 lacs on road. With 12000 Corp Disc, 30000 Exchange Bonus, 4000 worth of extended warranty plus some minor addons.

My Indica(DLS 2002, 98K Km) is evaluated for 105000 Rs. I am not sure if its ok, but total comes out to be 135000 with bonus.

Thanks, waiting time is one week max, but I may get it early as they have one silky silver on transit. I told them very clearly that I will inspect the car before its invoiced to me.

Any idea, if there is a waiting period for it in Bangalore? My dad's friend asked Bimal and they told him that he has to wait for 3 months.

Good choice there mate. Looking forward to a few pics.

In Agra, SX4 is readily available except for the Colour White which has a waiting of 7 - 10 days.

Thats a good hefty discount you have gotten there

Thanks Abhinav, well I am not actually a mod guy, so nothing except seat cover, reverse parking help, spoiler and Sun films. Will think about the tyres.

Yes I will inspect the car with lense :-). I am not at all pushing sale guy for the car as I know it will not be long.

No idea for banglore, but SX4 does not have long waiting time.
