Default Congratulations AdiJazz!

So, it is a Jazz! Good choice, I would say.

Micra was a pass-over as I've (personally) been disappointed with that car during my test drives. That car has nothing to offer to me in the top variant except a IKey. Looks like it did the same to you. And what better car is there than the Jazz for the exclusivity we want; with its rich features and reliability? So, all in all, a wonderful decision!

If you can afford the price, you deserve it. Even after discounts, it is an expensive buy. But, we all want what we love, so price doesn't matter there. So, don't mention discount again in your future posts. (my request)

There are few threads on this forum which details modifications to a Jazz, or did I miss them? I wish you'd be the one to make a premium hatch a real premium!

Congrats. There's a Jazz in our apartments and I love its different looks. The boot sure looks huge too.

Dude, I can't believe you haven't posted any pics! Jazz being a rare car, please flood this thread with pics - am sure it looks great in White

Welcome to the jazz club adi! post your car's pics soon. Irrespective of the price, its the best all round premium hatch that money can buy. There is a surprise in store for you from my side after I see your pics.

Congrats on your Jazz Adi. After disappointing experience with Micra this is really worth. Take your own time and flood this thread with pictures and initial experience.

Congrats for your Jazz. It was nice to read about your experience. I am also facing the same dilemma at present. Let us see what comes out at the end.

Congrats man. Its always a difficult decision when it comes to Jazz. The way you described the elimination process explains your thought-process very well.

Waiting for Pictures, I am eager to see the interior especially the boot and the back seat adjustments.

Congratulation adimicra! Jazz is a very good car, and your White Jazz looks very nice. I totally agree with and can relate to the adjectives you have used for your search process. I went through the same emotions recently, but for me it was 13 month long process instead of 2 months

Perfect choice and a perfect buy! Congrats. White looks awesome.

I would say somewhat similar to my buying experience.
(Fought against all odds to buy a newly released Fusion in 2005).

Now when I have thoughts of changing, my mind ranges to all sides North and south of the 10L barrier!
One thought says go with Altis-D (spend the money).

But since I am basically sold on hatches, I want reasonably sized rockets. On the size front Jazz and i20 are perfect for me.
But some how I am still not convinced on the power (after having driven a 100BHP, 1.6 for so long).

I am hoping that we get more of Polo 1.6 like vehicles. Seeing VW hopefully Hyundai and Honda
spruce up the performance of their super hatches. 1.6L, 100 BHP Jazz with 15 inch Alloys (or eq I20) would be my ideal choice.
Lets wait and watch, if that reality dawns on us! I am hopeful!


Congrats once again!

Mods, I think he is entitled for a handle change: adjazz!

Congrats buddy on the new car. It sure seems like money well spent.
I had a chance to have a look at the Jazz and I've been very impressed.

I though you the bough the variant with alloys and fog lamps, didn't you?

Cheers

Yeah, wonder what happened! He did mention Jazz select and Alloy wheels.

@adimicra: Congrats! You would never regret your decision of going for the Jazz, given the discounts you got .

Guys,
I will get the Select kit (with Alloys) and the Active kit (shown below) within the next 15-20 days - as promised by the dealer (in written)

Thanks! Jazz is available with 15" alloys. It has got 10 hp less than your need but it is adequately powerful and very revv-happy, though I understand where you are coming from!

Oh Ok, so you will be getting this done with the dealer. I was under the impression it came factory fitted.
Enjoy the ride.

Hey Adimicra,

Many Congrats Bro. Jazz is an excellent allrounder, and white is such a superb choice of color for this beauty.

Wishing you many happy miles with your Jazz.
