Default Booked New Black Palio SDX

Finally booked the beauty a couple of days back. Dont know why but hardly have any waiting time sales chap at the VST motors here in chennai says I can take delivery by sunday.
I have an important question guys since I have no time at all literally. How important is it to check the car pre-registraton.

Planing on geting an Alpine CDA 9886 and 6k components. Wanted to get the illusions El 6.1 but couldnt find a dealer in chennai.

Cheers...cant wait.

cheers:

Great, One more in the club. Just look at some items in the checklist with your dealer.
Good that you don't have any wait time.

First of all CONGRATS.

I didnt had any issues with the car though its always better to check it before registration. Once registered its all yours.

Are you getting any discounts/Freebies?

Congrats for your decision!

Could you enlighten us with your decision making process?
Which cars you considered before deciding on Palio MJD?
why you chose Palio over others?
and so on...

This morning I saw Palio Stile 1.6 Sport with Red Logo and my eyes lit up. I believe FIAT PALIO STILE PETROL versions come with Blue logo. All vehicles starting Palio MJD come with new RED LOGO.

Has this changed? Has FIAT started putting RED LOGO on Petrol Stiles as well?

If that is the case then I think it's a very good news. If this happens I believe many would consider buying Palio Stile Petrol.

Congrats. Good choice.

It's very important that you go to the dealer's stockyard and check the car yourself prior to going for registration.

Are you sure that was a 1.6 Sports model? Since only the MJD is customized for the new Red logo while the 1.6 and 1.1 comes in the older Blue logo only.

I'm saying this as I got 1.6 Sports this month

And I dont think the red logo was a deterring for people to go for Stile 1.6 Sports

Poor sales, poor A.S.S and psychological effects of the past has contributed for new Palio Stile rare/unique on the roads(atleast in Navi Mumbai/Mumbai)

Congrats sir,
I am from Chennai and have a SIENA 1.2.Really could not resist myself buying a MJD.But now i have come to a conclusion to buy a GP or LINEA(coz they are the new gen world cars for FIAT).BTW you have booked at VST.Who was the sales guy?Kadar Badsha or Hari or someone else.But if it is Kadar do refer my name as Vignesh with the SIENA.He will do the needful.

Vignesh

Thanks a lot for all the replies guys....means a lot.

Freebies yeah the usual mudflaps and floor mats though was told I couldnt get 3M tints free so will be paying for that. Other than these getting a whole tank of fuel..pretty shocked when I heard thought I might get a 5ltr coupon or something like that.

As for my reasons on this car.
Long distances 40kms one way to work not to mention field visits so will be doing minimum 2000kms a month thats why a diesel.
After that fixed my budget and the same cars popped up ...yes u guessed it the swift and the palio. Was initially apprehensive about the fiat but then read on this forum about the positive response and the classy engine.
Also wanted a tank with good clearance and nice ride since the areas I have to travel resemble war torn sudan .
But what really did it for me was the number of swifts on the road.

My sister went to check the car out today before registration. Slightly dusty no visible scratches/damage and Odo: 57kms. Noted down the engine number .

Yeah been trolling the ICE section for almost 2 months now . Problem is it'l take me 3months on this pathetic salary to save up for a nice setup and thats just the initial bit ...looking at an amp and rear ovals/comps long term.

Cant wait
cheers:
