Finally got my S W I F T
it was a very tough decision.
I had put up a thread for the bhpians to help me decide between Alto, Wagon R VXI or an Indica Turbo.
I knew there was no comparision between them but then after all the reviews I decided to go in for the Wagon R VXI
So there goes.. I called up Vitesse Motors.. the executive came with the test drive car on the decided day.
I drove the car and really like it.. the smoothness.. the space.. everything.
I was getting a very good deal on the car.. was getting 20000 cash discount + 5000 corporate discount + mudflaps, mattings and the body colored spoiler as freebies with the car..
Decided to go with the black color.. paid the token and was set to take delivery next week.
Then comes the moment.. I say to myself.. would the wagon r look good if later on i decide to pimp it.. the answer was a BIG NO.
Then i realised that in hatchbacks.. swift is a modifiers canvas
Then i just had a talk with my dad.. told him that swift according to me was a better buy.. tried to hide that look on my face which said that i am gonna modify it like my OHC
Dad said buy whatever.. immediatly jumped to get the phone and called the vitesse fellow.. told him to hang on and that i was coming to test drive the swift..
went to vitesse the same day and test drove the swift.. fell in love instantly.. wanted to buy the ZXI version but truthfully didna have that lac rupees more as already i had overshot my budget my a lac rupees
booked the swift VXI immediatly.. now came the difficult part.. which color..then I happened to see a pearl arctic white swift in a corner.. saw it and zeroed on the color..
did the paperwork etc.. the car costed me 497000 on road without a rupee discount and got only mattings and mudflaps as freebies.. the sales guy said they dont give a thing free with the swift.. i didnt care much..
the delivery was scheduled a week later..on a sunday.. the sales guy called up on sunday morning saying that the delivery cud be done on monday only due to some paperwork etc..
as i had to go to office.. i cud not take the delivery of my car so my dad went and got it home..
i reached home late night and there she was shining and spanking clean.. took her out for a little spin and concluded that i made a right choice..
in the coming weekend went to install the ICE.. wanted to get the JVC AVX 800 but it was too expensive for my budget. Bought a sony dual din with 4 JBL door speakers.. didna want to install a parcel tray..
I know that the ICE gurus will kill me for putting a sony but i have a decent system in my OHC so its ok for now..
planning to upgrade the tyres and put some nice alloys.. thing of installing 15's with 195 / 60 r 15.. does the upgrade seem ok.. pl advise
so thats about it.. will post the driving review and pictures very soon..

Congrats on your new car. The decision to move in for swift from WR? If you ask me, it is individual's choice. As WR has good inside space and RR seat comfort is better than swift. I owned a WR and have driven Swift. But for modifications, swift is highly recommended. Will wait for your pics. AFAIK, 15" should be a good bet for the swift. Just do a search and will find the answer for this.
