I think the USB port can be fitted yes. Car techies can throw some light on this.
Same goes for the boot and engine bay light. Can be done by any mechanic with less fiddling of wires since these are small bulbs.

I didnt notice the X had a boot light! did it??
Yes, it did and I was surprised to see it as Honda is not advertising it anywhere for the X variant - this is a small but an important feature nonetheless.
If you get any info on the USB thingy, let me know. I will enquire in the dealership about these things but I am not sure I will get a convincing answer

Anyone know how much does a pair of OE fogs and OE Leather seats(with the embossed Jazz logo) for the Jazz cost? I am trying to find out if its cheaper to get it installed by the dealer or otherwise.

Can some of the Jazz owners here comment on comfort for passengers at the rear? How would you rate the suspension and the ergonomics (under-thigh / back support)? Is there adequate shoulder room for 3 passengers and will the 3rd (seated in the middle) feel comfortable, especially during long trips?

spindoc passangers at the rear have a huge space and can are comfortable. Suspensions are bit on a harder side but not to case any kind of discomfort. Ergonomics will be able to provide my feedback after 2 weeks as planning to do a weekend trip on 29th Oct. There is enough sholder room for 3 persons at the back. if required 4th person can also be accomodites for a short 20 kms drive without issues (Already did that).

I am sorry if i missed out on the details, but i always thought the Jazz Base and Select currently only come with the Euro III engines. I believe the only Euro IV engines in the honda line-up is in the ANHC.

Or maybe i am amiss here

Apparently not. I got my Jazz delivered a couple days ago and it is a Euro IV spec.

The suspension is a little on the stiffer side for sure, it does not absorb bumps and potholes like my OHC. Back support for the rear seats is good, not the best though - once again if I compare it to my OHC. I would like to mention the middle passenger seat hump is a little annoying and can get in the way of comfort for longer trips. Otherwise the Jazz is just too perfect to complain about.

Can you please check and confirm if your car is registered as Euro IV? As far as i am aware all Jazz except for XMT are Euro IV compliant but not registered as Euro IV cars as they are manufactured before March.

I verbally confirmed with the dealer if the Jazz I was getting was a Euro IV or a Euro IV compliant and they did mention I would be getting a Euro IV spec.
Also I just figured out my car is actually manufactured IN March. Before March = Euro III, IN March = Euro IV I suppose?!?

I'll reconfirm the same yet again with the dealer. Any way of knowing the spec from the car engine?

I am not aware about knowing from the engine no. My car is also a March manufactured but had checked with all the dealers in Mumbai and everyone confirmed that i will get a Euro III car only. If you have received your RC book and check on the RC book.

Haven't yet received the RC book. So can't be too sure. But before that, this is an open question - How OKAY should I be with a March manufactured car bought from the dealer in Mid October?

@scrooze - thanks for the insight. Look forward to updates in your ownership thread, after your long trip.

4 people at the rear!?

Thanks much. I was thinking about how comfortable it would be for old folks. I can see that your Jazz has completely bowled you over, and rightly so!

The Jazz has been Euro IV compliant since its launch. Check GTO's post here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1340927-post6.html

There's a coinage being used by Honda which says it is 'compatible' - which does not necessarily mean it is registered compliant. Maybe it is a Euro III engine, but can be fueled with Euro IV petrol.

But frankly, how much difference should it make either ways? Really!

Now that is exactly what I would like to know too. How and when does it really matter if the engine is a Euro III or a Euro IV ?
