Careless thinking from Maruti to discontinue the 1.6L DDiS in the S-Cross facelift. This decision by them has made me look elsewhere.

The next best offering in the market I could think off was the Creta 1.6 CRDi SX (O) after the S-Cross 1.6 Alpha.

Booked my car today

Model : Ford Ecosport titanium optional 1.5 tdci

Colour : Diamond White

Expected delivery : within 7 days

I would be exchanging my first car, a yellow & white Vitara Brezza zdi+, and opting my second favourite.
Out of the 30,000 kms driven, almost 90% has been on highways with kids in the rear seat. As such, I am going for a safer car, most importantly with curtain airbags.

Congratulations SedateMotorhead on your new booking.
And for having your first post on this forum being the one about your booking.

One query, while going through the new Verna thread, i found that Floor Lamination is listed as an accessory - not clear whether it is dealer provided or official accessory.

Would it make sense to go for this via the dealer or do it from outside. The advantage of getting dealer to fit this would be that fitment would be better but doing it outside would mean it would be cheaper.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.
Thanks Ithaca!

Well, floor lamination was not mentioned in the list when I booked the Creta, so I'm assuming it is probably dealer provided and not official accessory.

If it certainly is at the dealer level, I doubt the figment would be any better than one would get outside. So if I were you, I'd do it outside and save a few bucks.

Having said that, here are a few disadvantages of floor lamination which I have experienced when I got it done for my Swift:-

1. The floor mats don't stay still and keep moving around because of the smooth surface of the lamination.

2. After a couple of years, the lamination would tear from the edges and dirt would get in from these tiny tears. It became impossible to clean under the lamination and seeing all the dirt just sit there drove me insane!

3. Fortunately, I never actually spilled any liquids on the floor; Neither did I face any flooding which would make water seep into the cabin. So, basically I didn't really experience the advantages of the lamination
Now I know that is like saying "I bought a life cover, but did not die. Hence, the insurance premium pair was a total waste". All I'm saying is that I wouldn't get it done again because I feel I'd rather get the carpet cleaned or changed once in case I happen to face with any flooding issues, instead of facing the problems listed above, on a daily basis.

Oh and yes, I did get rid of the lamination on my Swift eventually. Its lovely to see the Velcro under the floor mats actually working!

I'd suggest if you can actually see a car with floor lamination, do check it out before taking a decision.

Cheers!
