It had to happen today - on the 22nd day, an errant auto-rickshaw grazed past my Swift, luckily the damage was limited to a few scratches, nothing more serious, even that hurts.
I tried to touch it up with some polish, and now it is not really visible.
My request to new/ novice drivers like myself - stay away from autos, public buses, two-wheelers, etc...if you love your vehicle give them a wide berth, atleast for now!

Hi Blwetorch,

Congrats for the New purchase, hope you are enjoying the car, wanted to ask that the parking sensors which you have mentioned, are they a Maruti Genuine Accessory or a dealer provided one ?

Do treat us with some Interior pics of the Car !!

regards,
Sanjeev

congratulations on the swift blwe...

the swift looks really sharp even though she has been around for a couple of years and she has a really nice set of engines in both petrol and diesel.

when we were upgrading the palio, the swift was very firmly in our radar as a no nonsense, good looking and cheap car to maintain and own. it all went out the window when the linea finally arrived though!!!

enjoy her and stay sane.
cheers mano

Well....I have been talked into buying only those accessories which are covered under Maruti support/warranty, by the Sai Service, Deccan, Pune.
Normally the parking sensor is not listed under Maruti Genuine Accessory, as per my knowledge.
I am visiting the dealer tomorrow, for my first service. I shall try to get some more information on this.

Yep, it looks sharp and it seems to be easier to maintain. It is still early days for me though, and tomorrow is my first service( 1100 kms). I did my initial market survey while zeroing on the Swift(Petrol).

The Indica Vista, Chevrolet UVA and the Chevrolet Spark( on a different segment) looked very, very impressive. Hyundai i10 too looked very good, but a bit too pricey for it's class. And ultimately, it was Swift.

Congrats on your new Linea! It is in a different league all together!

Well, I had one just today, unfortunately. Somehow I managed to scrape through, suffered a few scratches on the right-hand, body-bumper corner. Applied some polish to soften it up.

Thanks man.
I just wanted to get an idea of the power window and fog lamp installation cost.Thats why i asked you.
ME too have a REd swift lxi (2005) with me.Well the power windows price hadn't change that much since 2 years,coz i had enquired the MASS about the cost and they quoted me the same price as you did.)

As some one said above,the front sides and rear sides will be most certain parts to get scratched.Happy to hear that you were able to polish away those smal scratches.

Anyway enjoy the ride and drive safe (though it is difficult in this awesome peppy car.)

Thanks jithu! The messy traffic situation in Pune, as in most other Indian cities make driving a night-mare! One always yearns to get out on to the high-ways!

Hi...thanks.
Had my first service today. They replaced the Engine oil and the oil filter and generally cleaned the car besides some other activities.
Today being a sunday, not many sales guys were around. The only one who was there, told me that the MGT Parking sensor is part of the Maruti Genuine Accessories list, although, it doesn't come pre-installed on any of the models.
I must mention that my AC is working very fine.
I am posting some more pictures of my latest family member.

Hi all, today I had a problem with the front-left power window, once again.
The Sai Service Stn, Deccan, Pune guy although, arrived quickly enough and had it repaired. some faulty wiring issues.
Otherwise the vehicle is performing very well.
