thanks pal, 3.65L is the final price! no more cash discounts apart from what was initially offered! however, they are offering the standard freebies like, Mats, Car Perfume, etc! He has also promised a surprise gift at the time of delivery as well, he refuses to tell me what it is though!

Very nice dealership experience so far i must say! am quite impressed!

I too learnt driving on Santro and immediately after getting DL, bought Spark. Within a week started going on long drives and so far it's been a great experience.

I wish your parents-in-law have a great time with their Sparky
Thanks a ton buddy!

Congrats on booking Saprky.
I booked blazing red LT variant after doing lots of study on new/used cars available in the market. Expecting to take delivery by end of this week.

i would recommend a PS or lower variant with the stuff you need like foglamps retrofitted.
Might work out cheaper

they were only particular about the body colored bumpers, and because the LS came with it along with a few more features, they went for it! (get your point, would've worked out cheaper for sure! and I would've done that if i were going to use it, but because its their first car, wanted minimal or no complications at all!)

Well the spark is a very good car to drive around the city.Amazing pickup,good steering,easy to park.But the milage is not that great with the A/C on specially comapred to the other cars in the same segment.Well till what i have herd that maintanence cost is pretty high after the first 3 year package.Have clocked around 3000km on it till now.

My SPARKY has arrived at dealership, went there yesterday and did the PRC and payed the balance amount. It will take another 2 days to clear the check. Most prabably I will get my beauty on friday.

@Raamki there is some additional discount available on Spark now (5-6 K ). Have you discussed with the dealer on this. Even I do not know how to deal with it. When checked with the dealer he told since the booking is done few weeks back there is nothing much he can offer now. Can someone guide us on this.

Discount was not available at the time of booking but available now.

You can try asking for it. But no guarentee.

If it was other way, meaning if the price was increased, then it will be recovered from customer. If its discounts, then the time of booking matters All dealers are same.

@raamki,

Congrats on booking the Spark. Please do post some pictures as soon as you get your car.

I heard that the spark has indicator switches on the left and wiper switches on the right. Do you know if it is still like that ?
