Default My Baker`s Chocolate Ritz LDI delivered!

I got my Ritz LDI delivered yesterday.This is my first diesel car so i am really looking forward to my experience with the car.My previous car was a Wagon R which i bought in August 08 and was sold a month back.I compared the petrol and diesel options for the Ritz and finally bought the LDI since my monthly average running was more than 1500km.Also in my 2-3 test drives i found the diesel handling more to my liking since on really bad roads at moderate speeds of 40 kmph the diesel was well planted with suspension staying planted whereas the petrol was bouncy. Will be posting pics soon!

Congrats Damodar. How is the NVH in the diesel Ritz with the engine bay a tad smaller than the Swift ?

Congrats on your new possession. I guess your the first among BHPians to get a Ritz delivered. Do post some pictures. I suggest you also plan a tyre upsize

How has the transition from the Wagon R to the Ritz been? Please do a comparo on the interior space utilization, as well as drivability aspects.

Congrats Damodar; the first Ritz diesel at TBHP.

Ben; a friend of mine said Ritz was far better seats ; softer and after he checked Ritz, he felt his Swift's seat to be a hard bench type.

ramhyundai had only praise about Ritz petrol; lets see.

Congratulations Damodar. The Multijet dervied DDiS was the main reason for the whopping success of Swift Diesel. Is the DDiS for Ritz any differently tuned?
