Congrats!

BEAT looks good in almost all colours, seen few BEATs on Bangy roads.

How about white alloys for your new white machine?

What you HAVE missed out on, and should be handed an infraction for, is pictures of your car

I felt the car pulls well enough after 2K rpm. Below that its kind of very sluggish. Please let me know what you feel. since i also have booked the car.

Hi..

The power delivery in the in lower RPM's is not up to the mark.. once past the 1500 RPM the pull is strong.. I guess you can live with it.. though guys in Swifts will breez past you..
I have mentioned the IVRM to be useless as it reflects 1:1 and does not cover enough of the view.. over all it is a great car.. I have ono regrets buying it..

Hi.. no point in showing the boot..! it is tiny!

Mafia, she is a head turner. This is the first white beat that I am seeing. I love the double (split) grill. How is the visibility with the seating arrangement? I see that this car seats pretty low compared to your front bonnet height.

Congrats Mafia..! The Beat Looks absolutely Fabulous in White.
Does the LS variant have an Immobilizer..? For such a awesome looking cutie..maybe its needed.

Did you have a chance to enquire about tyre upgrade at the dealer itself..?

Please let us know about the dealer experience as well. More pics please..!

Folks, Question on the dealership. There is a Trident Chevrolet as well now in Bangalore. Does that mean, these guys are dealing with both Hyundai and Chevy?
