This why he is called crazy.About 50k difference from i20 asta and 6 months of waiting against ready delivery, should not be that difficult to make a choice.

i20 was one of my choices for its looks and equipment list, but I would be doing highway runs regularly, and was keen on a better ride/handling package. :-)

@Aurum, Beast_within, funkyp, Mas,

Congratulations for the car bookings, waiting for the ownership reviews soon with lots of pics. Except for Funkyp's petrol rest all diesel?? Is the latest price hike the reason for so?

Funkyp - must admire you for bucking the trend.

Thanks! petrol was not an easy choice with the price differential, but with my limited running, i decided to take the plunge. love the free revving smoothness of petrols, especially honda. The excellent space and feel good factor of the jazz was an added advantage

Congrats guys on your rides. many kms of safe and happy motoring!

Thanks, Ghodlur. It was either a Jetta or a petrol. I chose the Jetta. To be honest, if they had offered the Laura Tsi (petrol) in the Jetta with an Auto, I would have jumped for it. I'm not partial to diesel. In fact my running of around 15-20k kms a year doesn't justify a diesel. I like the smoothness of the petrol as well.

@Venu,

Congratulations on the Manza booking. Dont worry you have chosen a good vehicle. I hope you will be doing the T-BHP checklist which will further instill the confidence in your buy.
I hope you will comfortable in the diesel ride since the previous one was a petrol one.
