Default The Prince - Tata Indigo Manza QJD Aura ABS

Guys glad to inform you that we bought The Prince - Tata Indigo Manza QJD Aura ABS in Dew White, after TD'ing so many other cars in the market this one filled the bill completely for our requirements of diesel sedan and after getting obsessed with plenty of space in Tata Safari which other car would give us so much sa=pace in the sedan segment.

The earlier war horse Indian Merc - Maruthi Esteem Vxi was sold on Feb 22nd and The Prince was booked on the Feb 18th, we took the delivery on March 21st and this shows how hot this car is in market waiting for 1 month.

The initial ownership report will be written by my brother(kdeepakk) who actually took the delivery along with our family as i was banging my head to the wall sitting 4,800kms away in Singapore .

There are other twists and turns in the buying process which shall be put in later as of now i would like to introduce The Prince -

Now the picture part below -

Congrats on your Prince. I'm in the market for a sedan and have now decided to buy a Manza. Since I'm on a business trip outside India, asked my wife to do a TD. She loved the car and is insisting that the color should be Dew white - now I know why !!

Congrats gowda79. I'm seeing a lot of Manzas on the roads these days and the white really looks hot.

Please do post an initial ownership review.

Also a suggestion: If you can, avoid the use of the perfume that is in your photo. It is prone to leak and can give a hard time to your plastics.

Do I see a BS4 sticker in one of the pictures? I did not notice this is a few other Manza(s) seen either on the road or on the forum.

Also, in the last few pics taken in the evening/night, the white colour of the car has a satin / silky effect - looks lovely.

Gowda,

Congrats on the buy! Looks a charm in this color!

Pearl white, dew white - what the hell? Do you plan to get into politics after coming back? All that will be missing is a white towel, as seat cover, and you are set to play the role!

Congrats mate!

Now, out with the experience write up.

And, have a great time at Singapore! ( )

Default Congratulations!

Congrats on your new purchase! Also wishing your family many happy kms of ownership of the Prince!
Am thinking there is going to be a royal battle between you brothers to claim the driver's seat in either of your cars, on your next trip home .

Congratulations on the Prince, the 3rd White one on TBHP.

+1 to the comments above.
1. Battle Royale for the driver's seat between brothers (safeguard your assets)
2. Chennai-indian lost his car to his wife

IMHO, the 1 month waiting is good considering that the demand will increase a little in this period to take advantage of depreciation and also the new BSIV norms.

Does anyone have the WL on the DZire? Hope it has come down form the ludicrous 6-9 months for the DDiS when I was looking to book the car in November 2009.

Congrats Sir,

The white Safari and the white Manza are making a strong case for themselves.

Manza with a nice set of alloys will look even better.
