Maybe it's me, but the white stripe kind of spoils the upholstery.

I would have gone with beige because the whole car interiors are beige.

Stanley's stitch & fitment is great btw...

Hello HV,
Where is your workshop in Mumbai and what kind of work do you do?
Currently I have a City and a Civic, if there is something to be done I could come to your workshop if you don't mind.
Regards

hey mate, that isn't white but silver stripes. Only if you could see it in person you will really like it .I do agree that beige would have looked good, stock was beige fabric.The only thing is, Beige gets dirty soon and I opted out only because of my usage pattern

Hey congrats vish buddy,

Superb is simply a superb car & I ope it serves you well.

One question though, didn't you check the Cruze when going for laura coz IMHO it gives a stern competition to Laura.

But kudos to your choice & congrats once again

I did td the cruz but me and dad both found the driver seating position very uncomfortable.
Also the back seating is way too cramped . Me and dad are above 6 ft and did not want to compromise on interior space

Stanley costed me around 46k and warranty wont be an issue because the wiring was a socket to socket fit and not cutting of wiring was done.

Dude I understand what you are saying, but this area was once part of our private parking, which was taken as a part of beautification project and now in this stretch only building owners are allowed to park their vehicles..
