sunfilm- 3M, Rubber mats, seat covers,2additional rnd
6" JVC speakers at rear, waxyol paint protection
coating, roof rails-yet to be installed, God's Idol, car cover. +tata
indica walky connection worth 2k.

Other features - Driver seat height adjustment, Tilt steering, tray under
in Aura front co-driver seat, 60:40 split seat at the rear. Rear
wiper, Fog lamps- both front and rear, all power windows
child lock, safety lock, body colored bumpers and door

I tried to be comprehensive in my coverage but might have missed some points. pls excuse.

I also managed a minimal few thousand's discount on the ex-showroom. I cant explain but reson is we have done the final assembly and paintshop line for the new indica plant and also have some of our other machines installed in K block. Which means i got real good contacts in the Bombay house.

Congrats on the new car buddy. Looks smashing in RED! I used to drive a Blue Turbo a few months ago. It was a pleasure to drive and fun to fill (savings galore!!!).

Again thanks one and all for all your wishes.

here are my new observations @ 450 kms

1. a queaking noise coming out from one of the joints of left front seat. esp when a 70+ kg person sits there. no noise when my wife or my sis sits there.
2. left front window recoiler motor giving problem esp. during putting windows pane up.
3. A thud from the boot whenever i brake suddenly. i heard someone else complaining about it.
4. the lock of 0.60X part of the seat is not functioning well.0.4X is fine.
5. and finally the real thing FE @ 15.89 kmpl-tankful to tank full at the same petrol pump (Shell Kharadi)-totally driven in city- 90+ % of the time with a/c. out of 450 kms the a/c was not used for a lil less than 30 kms.
