If you can please give the final price with breakup. The most important factor in making or breaking the deal.

At the time of booking the Creta 1.6 SX+ petrol mt the price was 13.37L on road. Break-up is:
11.85L (ex-showroom), 97k (registration), 3.5k (essential kit), 50k (insurance).

No discounts, loyalty, exchange bonus, freebies was offered.

Additionally there is 1% TCS on ex-showroom applicable and a price hike of ~15K around the corner.

Booking amount is 25k. (Booking amount and wait period seems lto be higher for the black colour)

Hope this helps!

Edit: I just realised there is no handling charge in the quote. Has Hyundai done away with it altogether now?

Make: Ford
Model: Aspire
Variant: Titanium
Fuel: Petrol
Booking Date: 12 August 2016
Color: White (Wanted to go for red but it had one month waiting period. White was the only one readily available.)
Expected Delivery Date: 21 August 2016
City: Pune
Freebies: None.
Discount: Titanium variant ex-showroom price dropped by Rs.91000, so no discount.
OTR: 7,10,983

I was planning to book the car last month. Delayed it as I was confused between Zest and Aspire. The confusion saved me Rs.91000.

I was informed yesterday that a Wagon R VXI AMT Option (ABS + Airbag) in Passion Red colour had reached the dealers yard. So much for the myth that the option variants from Maruti are non existent.

Anyway today I went to do my PDI. The VIN Number ended with GG indicating that it was a July 2016 piece fresh off the assembly line.

But rejected it as it had scratches on the front bumper which exposed the black surface of bumper at multiple places and rear right door near the weather seal, white paint spots near the same area and had done higher mileage than most other cars in the yard.

You are one lucky guy, arent you? By the way, a Ford aspire in titanium trim for 7 lakhs is a steal! Congrats!

After a hunting for a automatic petrol sedan for a while, finalized the VW Vento TSI and booked it yesterday. After the hunt, realized that the choice is pretty limited in this segment.
Only other decent alternative being the City CVT. How I wish S-Cross had an automatic.

Make : Volkswagen
Model : Vento
Variant : Highline TSI
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : 13 Aug 2016
Color : Toffee Brown
Expected Delivery Date : ~ 23 Aug 2016
City : Bangalore
Freebies : mud flaps, didnt opt for the floor mats and negotiated that into the discounts.

The Vento on display had JK Vectra
I seriously hope that my car will come with Apollo Alnacs, otherwise planning to get them changed to Michelins immediately after the delivery.
