Nicely detailed buying experience. Sorry about that scratch - but I guess you were yet to come to terms with your car's width, thus the scratch.
Enjoy your drive, and post your experience.
Get the following to enhance the looks+comfort:
1. Wider tires
3. Seat covers
4. Sun film

The i10 is quite a handy car for the city use. Its got good quality interiors except for the dashboard reflection which can be irritating at times.

240 kms update
11 days after driving the beauty home, the Odo now reads 240 kms. Here are my opinion about my first car:
I have driven within city limits only, and had not yet gone out on any long drive. The overall driving experience is very good. If I have to say one word about driving i10, it would be 'comfortable'. I have not found any significant stand-out drawback about this car.
- first gear pull w/o accelerator seems very less, it just rolls, need to push the gas a bit, but need to be careful not to rev it high, as it is still in run-in period
- The clutch lever is a bit high for my comfort, and there is no dead pedal. The clutch itself is very comfortable though.
- boot-space is just about sufficient for daily usage, not suitable for big luggages
- The ride is little bit bumpy
- there are tire noise, may be solved with better rubber
- the dash-board reflects on wind-screen, and while moving from light to shade it is very disturbing. Are there any dark dash-board cover for i10?
- The engine is super smooth and very very silent. The only time I hear it is while passing a high wall with windows rolled down
- The AC is good enough to chill front passengers very quickly even in noon. The rear passengers also did not complain about heat
- Though the car looks small from outside, the seating space is very comfortable. It is surprising how such a small car can have so much space. 5 people (one of them above 6') have sat on my car comfortably.
- The drive is zippy 2 gear onwards. Have not gone beyond 65kmph due to run-in
- seats ate comfortable overall, though under thigh support is a bit less.
- the steering is very light and ideal for city. This is my first car, and I had drove just 200kms, even then I can operate this on single hand, with one hand on gear knob

Also do update your performance details, any more observations soon !
what fuel, what tyre pressure, feel on longer drives,
Do you observe any tick-tick sound at idling?
<not from inside the car, but, try listening to it from out side, front, near the bonnet.>
there are many i10-ers here !
We can form a i10 group
