Oh boy, the discounts you have got is way-way less.
Some of the accessories that you have mentioned like the mats, perfume, fabric seatcover(you have art leather) would be free of cost with lots of bargain and saying that one dealer is giving this, what else extra can you give. You should have got in touch with few of the team-bhp folks for the better buy. Neverthe-less you are getting a nice car, yeah the Cute one.
Pamper her with the alloys first that you have mentioned in you first post.

The gear box of the Estilo's seems to be having a inherent design flaw. My dad had the issue with the gears not slotting in properly. Initially, we thought it might be due to his driving skills, or lack of it. (He is used to driving a automatic for the last 6 years while in Sharjah). But when that was ruled out, we thought it will get rectified with 1st service.

No luck. So raised all hue and cry and mails to Maruti support and 1 weeks at the dealers the box itself was replaced. No issues since.

My dads vehicle was purchased in the first week of Jan 2007.

I guess that was the problem with first few batches with Zen Estilo,which Maruti-Suzuki rectified after it was pointed out.Nowadays I havent heard or experienced any problems with Estilo gearbox.I have been driving one since May this year,as I have pointed out in my previous post.Lot of people had earlier complained about gearbox being 'rubbery with difficulty in shifting' ,but it was corrected in subsequent batches of cars.It still isn't as nimble as Esteem or Hyundai gearbox,but not that bad either.

I just read your other post where you had mentioned this. Yes, seems like they have rectified the issue. I have not come across many Estilo's owners and hence did not get any latest update. So, till now, I was still with the last know information.

Nice new car you are getting there. I got the Estilo for my wife last month. Ours is Lxi, in that context the discount rate you have got is same with ours, give or take 1K. The car has done 800 kms only but no gear problems whatsoever.

How much you are paying for those alloys? Nice ones. I am planning for the same.

Congrats on the new car.
Can you let me know how you managed to have the alloys at the maruti showroom. Did you buy it ahead and bring it to the showroom or bought them from the showroom acc. guy itself.

Good choice of alloys bglsrini,but I would rather do alloys with minimal spoke,because of ease of keeping it clean and also getting it less damaged on bad roads!
The first two pictures looks like your car has the lowest profile tyres on T-bhp

PS: Better pictures wanted srini with the tyres on next time!!

@ bglsrini:
if you have not bought these alloys then try to get alloys with 4 holes and right ET and PCD values.

Thanx Bouncer,I did not negotiate the rate for alloys seperately.I negotiated it as a package.

thanx RAC,
I first negotiated the rates as a package and then,I gave them the design of alloys. They got it and on my approval,they are fixing it.

my loan with axis bank is rejected. They are not giving proper reply. They have committed 12% rate of interest.

But,the show room people are saying they will organise loan but it will be 13.75%.

Can some one give me contact details and the best loan available in the market.I am now trying through HDFC bank.
