I think red colour is best for spark because of the red colour round tail lamps. Good choice !

How come it has black bumpers? Is it base model without power steering or only top end model has body coloured bumpers?

revhappy-it's the power steering and aircondtioned model.Was going to buy the LS version but my dad's gonna drive it so bought this one 'cos if the bumper gets hit I can simply go in for a new one which just costs Rs.950.00 otherwise would always had do get the colour bumper repainted even for minor scratches.

White Vdi-Thanks even i'm not much fan of sony head units but actually liked this one for the ipod compatbility and the face plate illumination 'cos it can be changed into two colours i.e. blue and green (specially green which matches the instrument cluster at night)

Guys still waiting to get the left hand side OSRVM and body strips which are part of the pacakage deal given by the dealer.

Congrats braveheart_77, did you think of installing the roof antenna for fm radio? I see in the pics that you don't have it- same case as mine. Did the dealer offer you an internal antenna? pls let me know.

I was not offered the roof antenna by the dealer but I've asked him to procure one for me.

Why dont you google for the dealers for GM in mumbai and call them to get the latest update.

GM keep giving huge discounts on spark time and again, so unless you contact them you never know when they start the discount and when they end.

CONGRATULATIONS Man. I have driven this car and is surely a pleasure to drive. The best part is the sound proof cabin and zero engine noise. One can't make out whether the car engine is running or not.

I suppose if I can remember right the indicators are also on the left hand side, unlike the maruti's.
In all Chevys you'll find indicator switch on the LHS. Its their standard.

Congrats dude. Spark is a nice car. Looks cute, ride and handling is good, cheap to own and maintain.
Drive safely and enjoy the drive.


P.S: I also own a Spark LT (Mint Green) bought for 4.5lacs in Sep 2007. Now the prices have come down considerably.

I'm got an average of 13 KMPL on the first refill.

Guptad42 nowadays they are giving ads in all the newspapers,you can try various dealers in mumbai and then you can get the best deal.

Santsharn lhs indicator is standard on all the versions.

You should have waited for one month and in Oct 2007 they had a diwali offer in which they gave a discount of 50K. Real bad luck for you. After that I think customers have become smart and buy spark only when offer is there, otherwise they wont buy it.

Strange GM does this only for spark and not for the UVA, tavera or magnum

If the UVA was available at 3 lacs I wouldnt mind buying it.
