@vijay - sure thing - will do.

Quick update - After a month, yesterday was the first time I actually took the car at 3 am on a relatively empty highway and it gave me a Fuel Efficiency of about 14 km/l; bouncing up my overall average from 7.8 to 9.9
Good to know that you are getting better FE and A.S.S experience is quite improved too.

She looks awesome. I have booked the same model and am waiting waiting waiting.

Can you tell me if you fit the parking sensors, does it void the warranty?

What is the waiting period right now ?
You can fit sensors from out side, don't cut wires but use couplers to join wires.

And where do I get these couplers? Will the average installer know about these?

Yes yes! They are quite common.

Do avoid an average installer though. Go to a good one. :P

Hi Guys, Am waiting still for my FTA 1.4 E+ to reach Chennai to take delivery. I am having a horrendous time with the dealer and he is not doing anything to make things move fast. It is 17 days since I paid the advance. Hopefully I can drive my car by the end of this week. The parking sensors issue is still not resolved on this thread. Can anyone give clarity on this please. Thanks.

The point is - don't put parking sensors for the moment

..and someone nicked the side view mirrors last night. Realized it this morning and registered a complain to the cops who were quite helpful. One walked with me from the cop station to my building (about 10 mins away). Bummer though!

Anyone know how much replacements will cost?

oops!

Well, since you already made a police complaint maybe you can claim insurance.

But I think each mirror assembly costs 2k or something (not sure).

Yes it will be covered, but you will need to pay 50% of the cost.

Generally, almost all insurance company's have this policy, only plastic, rubber parts, cables, bulbs etc. cost 50% is paid by the company rest to be paid by policy holder.

But painting, glass, metal parts all 100 % covered.

They put locks on the mirrors in such a way that if someone tries to force the mirrors out, the mirrors would break. Nana Chowk, is close to Tardeo and adjacent to Opera House. Opera House is known for its car parts.
