Prices were higher, but I need to have all this stuff ready in the car before I set off on my drive to Goa and I have hardly any time to prepare .

I have no idea what colour the lamps are coz I just asked him the wattage and that is 100/90 (So I guess it's plain Jane white light).

The power socket is already there, but the lighter doesn't come without a power socket - essentially I will have a spare socket and nothing to do with it, so I figured I could get it set up in the boot a-la Zxi and plug in my friend's Maruti Fridge in it on occasions that call for some revelry (No driving after that, of course) cheers:

ICE is going to be pretty lame compared to the stuff that other people on the forum have set up - so don't expect anything extraordinary there, will be fairly basic until I save up enough for a second upgrade (first upgrade will have to be the tyres)

Thumbs up Finally - An Update!

After a bit of a fiasco and a lot of confusion between the showroom and their warehouse, I was called up yesterday afternoon with a very excited Salesperson saying "Congratulations!! Your car has been unloaded at our warehouse". With a mile wide smile on my face, I set about getting my documents together for the RTO formalities. A little over 15 minutes later, I got another call apologizing for the incorrect update and that only one of the trucks dispatched from Gurgaon had reached and my vehicle was in the other one!!

Anyway, after a brief period of disappointment, the undying optimist in me awoke and I was content in the knowledge that if 2 trucks leave Gurgaon for Pune at the same time, their arrival will probably not be more than a day apart. Sure enough, I got a call from the dealer today morning that my vehicle has been unloaded at his warehouse - YIPPEEE!! cheers:

Got my papers together and asked the salesperson to collect them from me at the office (having a terribly busy week, no time to go and have a look at the car at the warehouse). Told him to get the registration and accessories in place and deliver the vehicle to me by tomorrow evening.

So one more night of dreaming about my "beast" (I prefer beauty, always tend to think of a vehicle as a 'she' - all apologies to the Pulsar and SX4)

OT: Found that the dealer has a White Swift Dzire ZXI (Petrol) available off the shelf. If anyone in Pune is interested in the same, PM me for the contact details of the dealer.

You missed out the "as soon as I save up enough" part , that's quite an open ended statement - so my company knows best dialogue will continue, at least for some time.

Thanks! I intend to do just that - took a printout of that as soon as the dealership told me that it's here .

Got the info from another source - the sales guy was clueless about it. I passed on the info to him and told him that he dare not give away this vehicle to anyone, or else..

You're right - I'm probably working too hard, it's bad for our (IBMers') image . The money part - true, for any average individual, I unfortunately have slightly expensive tastes (Single Malt only from the Glen of the deer, please).

Talking The Beast Arrives in Pune!!

My dealer wanted some more documents for the RTO process (God knows why, I already gave him a big enough sheaf to serve as toilet paper for 15 dysentery prone monkeys for a month) and I thought it would be a good opportunity to have a look at my baby. So, after cancelling a meeting (thanks Eddy for your inspiration ) I went off to the dealership to have a look at my brand new car.

Went straight to the parking lot and was surprised that it wasn't there, so caught hold of the sales guy and asked him to find out what the hell was going on. Finally found out that the vehicle had been driven to his workshop 3 kms away for the underbody coating and was on it's way back. Anyway, the car was back in the parking in about 10 mins and I had a chance to finally lay eyes on her.

Took a few pics with my pathetic phone camera (will take a proper digital camera when I take final delivery, hopefully today evening - so hold on for better pics).

Understated and shiny - just the way I like my women.
(It was still not washed yet and I was surprised that it still managed to look reasonably clean)

The silly sticker I paid an extra 20K for. Before you start chiding me for underestimating the safety applications of ABS, let me clarify that I'm just kidding.
You can make out me and the sales guy in the reflection. (Sorry about the terrible image quality)

The Beast!! I was a little unhappy about the oil patch near the nut at the top of the plastic engine cover, was told that they'd clean everything up in the washing before the delivery.

Congrats BBT. So happy to see yet another person getting a VDI with ABS. You are one of the few lucky people to get a VDI with ABS. So the Beast that you have got is something to cherish and a valuable possession, as not many have it

The Azure Grey looks great for the Swift, especially the rear end as it matches very well with the Red Tail Lamps and Fog Lamp.My Beast is a Bright Red one, and the rear end is the most unnoticed part, as the Tail Lamps are of the body colour

Get her home soon!!!
