So finally you chose driving pleasure over additional features of X1
I am sure you will always have a grin plastered on your face when you drive this car. Please share the deal that you got over PM if you don't mind.

Thanks guys!

Have sent PMs to you regarding deal details.

@drmohitg,

X1 drive was not bad. The lack of armrest comfort and leather upholstery pushed me towards 320d. Had a tough time deciding till last minute.

Congratulations. Did you take finance from Audi? Id the discount you mentioned is the one due to lower interest rate offered by Audi finance or over and above that? When I checked it out, they didn't offer much cash discount but the loan interest rate offered was close to 5%.

Thanks drmohitg. This is just the discount from Audi. I have gotten better rates from other banks than Audi finance.

I have been in the market for the past 3 months or so and they offered me a discount of 1.75 lacs till October. Since the OTR would be touching almost 40 lacs, I told them I was postponing the purchase but a potential buyer and to keep me updated if any good deals came by.

Decided this would be the best time to purchase since the prices would be increased from next month and also the upcoming budget might not be favorable towards luxury car buyers. Also there is a proposal to tax the second car in Kerala though I'm not sure if and when that will happen.

What is the rate of interest you got from outside banks? When I checked they were offering around 50k cash discount and finance at 5% interest rate. What was the final OTR for you after the cash discount?

Didnt notice before but is the 50k a subvention from the bank? It must be a franchise/ DSA( direct sales associate ) of the bank? Must be a pretty huge one at that if to offer such heavy discount.

Swift ZDi having discounts of 65k? I cancelled it in March 2012 after 7 months of waiting. How times have changed!

Congrats. Nice choice of colour.

There is around 20-25K discount given normally but I didn't feel the need for any freebies as the car is full. So I asked him to give me more discount on the ex-showroom price.

Thanks to my dad!

The EcoSport was supposed to be delivered by November. However, the dealer cannot commit on a date even now. Plus a price revision is happening soon. So I might just cancel my EcoSport booking as I have now pre-booked a Honda City last week, the details of which are:

Make : Honda
Model : New City (to be launched in January)
Engine Option: 1.5 petrol
Variant : CVT
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : 18th December 2013
Color : Golden Brown Metallic
Expected Delivery Date : March 1st week
Dealer & City : Basudeb Honda, Ranchi
Freebies & Discounts: None
OTR Cost : 11 L (expected)

That is bad attitude from Ford. Why accept bookings when they can't deliver the said. The car may be good but this response from Ford is sending then on the listing end.

I don't know what to say but happy for the Honda City. All the best

After much confusion between the Octy diesel, petrol and Cruze, I've gone ahead and make my (stupid?) decision

Make: Skoda
Model: Octavia 1.8 TSI
Variant: Elegance
Fuel: The sheikh's fuel, petrol
Booking Date: 23rd December 2013
Color: Race Blue/Cappucino Beige
Expected Delivery Date: max 15 weeks from today
Dealer & City: JMD Skoda, Thane
Freebies & discounts: hahahaha

OTR Cost : 21.XX L

My friends are going to flip and call me mental when they find out..."what? that much? wow, you're crazy. At least diesel liya...what??? It's a petrol??? OMFG, you are truly nuts lol"

And to that I say, who cares? My heart will soar with joy, just like the redline and my fuel bills The interminable wait begins...

With the tsi motor and multi-link suspension setup, this was the right choice mate!
