Total Cost including Tyre change, Accessories, TBHP Stickers came to about 5,98,204.

I got the insurance myself, so saved nearly 5K there. I will give the complete breakup tomorrow.

Finally, i am posting the break up of the price:

Cost mentioned by the dealer was 5,99,013.
I got 20,000 cash discount. So the final total was 5,79,013. I had paid 10,000 as booking amount.
The dealer insurance quote was 14,506. So i decided to get insurance on my own for 9638.
So, totally, i paid 5,64,507 to the dealer.

While taking delivery, i was told that i have not opted for extended warranty. So took it also for 4995.

Accesories:

LLumar Neutral 20
Door and Bumber beading
Reverse sensor

Total for accessories was about 10780.
Also, while tallying the cost at the end, there was a difference of 534, which i also paid.

I paid 7500 for 5 Michelin XM1+ tyres at Sai Iyengar.

I paid about 250 for TBHP stickers

Overall, grand total was : 5,98,204

I got Car cover and dealer equivalent price of sun film, which was about 650 for Garware, as free.

Will upload some more pictures with TBHP stickers this weekend.

Congrats on the buys Naveen (once again!). Earlier I did greet you in your TL!
But one I felt other wise on your comment on i10 and that you felt it was cramped. I though it was much more than Swift, Any comments.

I have both the i10 and Ritz in family. i10 AT (wife) and Ritz LXI (dad).
On long drives the Ritz wins for me handsdown. The more I drive the more I like it.

Congrats once again.

I am starting to like the Ritz more and more. I have driven about 950 kms so far. I haven't really pushed it too much yet. But its the completely opposite with Swift.

Yes my comment about i10 was in comparison with the swift. But i still feel Ritz is more spacious than i10. At least at the front, from my experience so far. I am about 5 ft 11 inches.

Bangalore is so expensive!

I think the OTR in Pune is 5.5, with a 15 k discount. Atleast it was when I was looking out for a car. Even the equivalent Swift is cheaper by almost 10kif you dont consider the extended warranty.

Karnataka has really crazy tax structure. I if am not mistaken, Karnataka is the highest as far as road taxes are concerned. So if the case with fuel also.

Default First Free Service Update!!!

Completed the first free service last week. True to the word, it was indeed free. Was given a bill for Rs.0 /-. Service was done at Bimal Service station in Indiranagar. It was mostly an inspection followed by water wash.

In addition to these, they gave few scratches near the left hand front door handle

After pointing out, they put some sort of white paste and rubbed it. They are sort of masked now!

The water wash was just ok. Old water droplet marks were not removed. The space by the door was not cleaned properly. I would rate the service as 6/10.

The car has now done about 1500kms and feels butter smooth. No rattles also!! Will be changing the light bulbs tomorrow to Hella. And also the much needed steering cover.

Haven't checked the mileage. Will do a 'tankfull to tankfull' calculation soon.

Put some tbhp stickers. I am uploading the photos.
