Any complaints or issues so far? I had none.

I am also waiting to get the collars installed. The service rep told me that presently they dont have the item in stock and he will call me when it is available.
Good to hear that there is a considerable improvement.

The collars that were installed for my vehicle were the last pair in stock at that time, I'm glad I gave the car for service at the right time.

That is great!
My dealer guy has no idea when it is expected.
He is only telling me that "we will do it as soon as we get the parts".
Anyway I did not find it as an irritant during my drive over rough roads.

This is a normal thing working with the dealers, as they just don't have any idea of the good's coming form the company. Communication problem.

Yes, completely. They do not know when a booked car will arrive, or the parts, or anything under the sun.

They better start hiring an astrologer for their showrooms. At least he would be able to give some hope.

Some fresh update for all you guys! I am upgrading the ICE in my LT baby (something that is a challenge in this variant).

Got the speakers purchased from Bangalore. Will be getting a Sub and Amp soon. Watch this space people!

The Main reason I avoided the LT was the terrible stereo! I do miss some of the finer features and the dash finish!

Looking forward to the ICEed story!

I have got my best friend in Bangalore who has purchased on my behalf, Boston speakers for dash and Polk speakers for the rear.

Am doing research for a good 10" Sub which would go under the driver seat cos I dont want to sacrifice boot space. Currently thinking of the Pioneer shallow series Subwoofer.

Will you void the warranty if you change the stereo? Also I thought its integrated into the dashboard. Is it possible to change without damage?

I wont be changing the stereo nor going to touch the head unit even. I will be working out a way where I will upgrade the stock speakers and install an amp and sub without hampering warranty

Is it just bangalore that dealers are not giving freebies?
hope this is not a cross post.

Dont worry about the visibility if you're 5'9".You'll have no trouble at all.Also it's definitely more fun to drive than the petrol figo.diesel is another thing altogether.
