Make : Maruti Suzuki
Model : Swift
Variant : ZDI
Fuel : Diesel
Booking Date : 29-10-2011
Color : Pearl White
Expected Delivery Date : 27-05-2012
Dealer & City : Bangalore
Freebies : Mud flaps, Floor mats, Idol, Perfume
Others : Was willing to take a booking!

So finally, after cancelling my previous booking for the same car and spending 2 full months taking many TD's on all car from the Figo to the Polo(budget was 9l max) realized the only car which puts a smile on my face every single time i drive, is the Swift! Punto 90 was very close but since i wanted a car mainly for city use, Swift triumphed in the end. The long wait now begins

Is this a typo? 3 years wait for a Swift?!

PS : Even if it is not a typo, I guess I shouldnt be shocked with the way it is currently going.

Congrats. I booked in July and ETA is given as Dec. And yes its the best vehicle ive drive in the recent times when it comes to Diesel hatchback. I got the TD vehicle home today and drove it around20-25 kms and finally decided to go for it.
BTW, there is a price hike next month (applicable to me too)

That's good to hear! So if its december its only a 5 month wait. I had a long chat with the Sales manager at the dealer and even he said if there are no strikes in future the car should come in 5 or 6 months. Finger's crossed

BTW, my sales rep (who booked my swift VDI) called today and informed that there is a red ZDI ready in the show room and If i want , I can pick it up.

As I dont want red and waiting for white, if anyone is interested in RED ZDI, PM me so that I can inform him to block it.

The delivery will be on the spot once the finance is settled.

PS: Im not where connected to the maruthi or sales .

Congratulations. Would you be able to share what the OTR price currently is (I realize it would be more when you actually take delivery in May 2012). I have the opportunity to buy in KA or TN and was wondering about price differences.

Thanks J.Ravi, I apologize for not updating my post after my initial excitement of booking the car :( . I did get the delivery on the scheduled date and will definitely post my feelings and the experience so far very soon (read next 2-3 days). Unfortunately I got caught up in some unforeseen issues due to which I was not able to spare time for this.

Booking Date: 12th Sep, 2011

Finally... :-)
EDIT:

Colour: Pearl Metallic Artic White.

Colour is common, but looks as good as the Torque Blue. Somehow, while i felt blue is stunning in daylight, it looks a bit dull towards sunset/ low light conditions. Moreover, a dark colour will be a lot harder to maintain in Chennai's hot and dusty conditions. Hence, switching to white.

Got a call on 25th October 2011 about the availability of one black ZDi. Other than that, no updates on the waiting period.
