Default Finally Got My Dream Diesel (Swift Vdi).

Hi all.
Finally got my Swift VDi on 25/10/08 (Dhan Teras). waiting period was awful. almost 3 months. I am supposed to get the car on Dushera. but dealer didnt get the white colour.
Coming on to the car. I am just in love with Diesel. I didn't feel that I am actually driving diesel car. My preivous car was 98 OHC. So this is totally new experience with diesel.

Few Accessories that I have finalized.
MGA Mats
MGA Security System ( ZXI one)
Garware ICE -COOL 50 Tints.
MGA MudFlaps


Mods. List

Carputer :
RV-070BY VGA Touchscreen - 12,142
SB-160D Automotive Power Supply - 3,900
Cases & Enclosures arrow Extigy-Al - 2,787
Intel BOXD945GCLF Motherboard - 3,700
Transcend 1 x 2GB RAM ( its not overkill for sure) - 1,600
Seagate 2.5" HDD 160 GB - 2750

I am yet to decide on ICE Setup. Max budgate for ICE is 35K. Inputs would be Appreciate.
Thanx.

No freebies. I insisted for mudflaps and mats. but dealer refused to give anything.
Overall experience was Good. Staffs are knowledgeable.
