In that case, are there any vestigial lights ( like we have in the current indica GLS/DLS models) ? Since I see red lights above and below the indicator/reverse lights, and i guess all marinas use the same cluster

OT: Not as illegal as higher wattage headlamps, dear sir. The reasons why some morons do this must be the same as mentioned by you.

I agree that rear fogs in normal weather are annoying, though.

I don't think I have seen the red ones below the reverse / indicator part working as I do not have rear fog lamps

Pavan, tell me something. From the looks of the interior dashboard pic that you posted, the plastic trim used looks more dull grayish with a lighter colored (almost whitish) panel in the middle.

Is that really how it looks? My idea was that the interiors now use a proper beige colored trim. Something more like this...

It looks exactly as posted in the First Picture., It does'nt actually define the beige, its more whitish beige and lightish brown.

Quite possible. Many people wire them as brake lights. But then there are already more than enough brake lights.

And I frankly hate the people who drive with their rear (and front) fog lamps in conditions with no fog!

Please correct me if i am wrong but IMO the light colour on the dash would reflect bright objects at night. like street light reflection etc. alsocould reflect direct sun light and be very distracting if not dangerous??

Fresh updates.

The Vista goes in for its First Servicing

Kms Done : 1050 kms
Average FE: 14.50 kmpl
Servicing Costs: Rs.46/-

The car was neatly checked for loose nuts/screws/bolts and some fittings all over.

A/C was checked, tyres balanced and rotated.

After a thorough wash, delivered by afternoon same day.

The Vista looks fresh as ever, and the engine feels its just opening up, Asked my cousin to do the basic ECU resetting.

Congratulations on your new ride Pawan.

It indeed looks great. Nice decision on going for Vista. Nothing beats the space inside an Indica and the new model is worth applause. Hope your ownership experience stays as bright as the car is.

Yes Pavan true, it has a more lighter tone to it and the beige in 2nd pic seems more similar to the one in i10.

The clutch on my sister's vista has this irritating rubbing feel to the foot when you take a decent pickup. The sevice guys haveent fixed though it was brought to their attention on both ocassions. Have you observed this or do you have any idea about this.
