Both of us being a TBHP member - that sounds persuasive enough!

An increase in power from 94 bhp to 95 bhp (or so they claim)
Company fitted keyless entry
Leather wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob
A badge proclaiming it to be 'Executive'

And absolutely no discounts of any sort (Even loyalty bonus or corporate discounts are not on offer)

I opted for accessories instead of the gold coin.
Yesteday I called Trident Hyundai, they are giving all sort of discount on Executive version as well with the same price tag 4.99 lakhs. 5K corporate discount also they are giving as trident hyundai sales executive explained me on phone + gold coin

However there were no commitments for Autocop, Sunfilm, Body cover etc that you got.

May be because your car color is of black?

Err, Srinivas, small correction here, my wife has bought herself a car, I only helped her decide.
Not that I would mind buying her one though.

Hey congrats on your new Accent. It looks really good in black. Nice photos by the way. Maybe you can add some stunning 14 inch alloys and 195/60R14 tyres to make the car look and handle even better. It's a good car but the seating is low. Not as easy to get in and get out of, as say a Santro or Getz. But as an entry level saloon, it's a good one.

Happy Motoring and of course, do update us with the performance of your car as time goes by.

Warm regards,
Venkat

Guys, we are way off topic here .

Srinivas and Mahesh, my wife is a 'reluctantly' active member here, and by the way, I've overheard conversation of a rival ladies wing of Tbhp to be formed to keep us guys away from the computers.

Default Congratulations

Luke: Congrats on the new addition. The Accent looks stunning in Black. A very good choice of color and car.

We have, in our family an Accent which has done about 75k kms and still running well. The only hiccups that we had was right after fitting an LPG kit. Took some time to sort out the problems. Otherwise, a gem of a car and really handles well on the highways too.

Enjoy your ride. May you have many many tens of thousands of Happy miles with it.
