Good choice. You must be a very good driver to park your brand new car like that. I guess HE and H1 interiors are different?

First thought when reading : Wow! What a great journey!

First thought on seeing pictures : Ouch! (Next thought: Great parking skills)

Congrats.

Congrats Jedi.

Looking at the narrow driveway, I would say that's a very RESPONSIBLE way of parking. I appreciate that.
That's how i park on my apartment driveway...and i get out of the passenger door.

Congrats Jedi! Corolla is undoubtly a great Car, only if it was priced sensibly in India!

But you got a whopping 1 lac discount! Good! Enjoy the ride!

Do get the alloys as well!

Jedi, congrats on the Corolla. While many criticize the car on its looks, i feel it to be quite decent, and not overdone. The alloys which came on earlier Corollas looked really good, and would be great if you could procure them for your car.

congrats jedi.Love the colour and the car.But why did you even consider swift and getz while your budget was in the range of a corolla.

and the rims on the car is unique.

Congrats on your new car, always loved the corolla.

I guess the car is parked very close to the wall for a reason, to allow other cars to pass through the narrow lane. I also park my car close to the wall to avoid being scratched by other cars. Better safe than sorry.
