Something about Audi dealerships and August end offers! Come to think about it we formally completed our A4 booking with the dealership on the 29th and the car warranty period was activated last year on 31st August as well

On that note heartiest congratulations mate. The A6 cabin is extremely tasteful without going overboard. Keen to know what exterior and interior combination did you decide on?

Re: The "NEW" Car Price Check Thread - Track Price Changes, Discounts, Offers & Deals

Starting to wonder if we would again witness the "crazy good" Audi discounts that many of our fellow BHPians had secured last year during the festive season?
Time will tell..

The discounts have only been increasing month on month basis (though lot less compared to 2021) and I believe the stock availability situation too has improved quite a lot! The Kolkata dealer now has 5-6 Audi A4s in ready stock at the showroom.

I just realised that I finalised my A6 by mid august for a delivery before 31st Aug. There is indeed something about Audi and August.

And @Manson- Hearty congrats. And super glad that you got the EW and Service Packages too. Itís such a peace to the mind I tell you. Youíll enjoy the machine. Be a little conscious on the overhang/length of the car during turns. Such a fab machine.

Same with me! The car was billed on 30th August and insurance and all was activated on 31st August.

Another Audi in August! BTW, waiting for your A6's review. After reading your Udupi travelogue, I sure it's going to be an interesting read.

Re: The "NEW" Car Price Check Thread - Track Price Changes, Discounts, Offers & Deals

Hello fellow travellers, I recently found this particular forum topic and have been glued to it ever since.

I have finalised BMW X1 sDrive20i xLine (Petrol Top Variant) in Bangalore.

Final price, after discounts, on road in Bangalore quoted as follows:
- Rs. 50.75 lacs w/ three years of BSI+
- Rs. 51.66 lacs w/ five years of BSI+

I am considering choosing with 5 years BSI+ option for peace of mind.

Any thoughts? Thank you.

New generation X1 is coming next year in India, maybe wait for it? Or wait for current gen to get even more discount.

Would you mind sharing the dealer/sales advisor details. In Hyderabad, I'm getting an offer of Rs.52 Lacs on X-Line but without any BSI.

Is this offer for Petrol or Diesel? My offer is for Petrol. I got similar offer from both Bangalore dealers, they are willing to match offer.

Mine is for Petrol too. It is only a verbal offer (KUN BMW), 52 Lacs on road (as against 56.67 otherwise) for X-line petrol. When I quoted your offer, they were adamant that it is not possible, 50 Lacs + will be without adding insurance, which could be charged separately by the lease provider.

At this rate, BLR dealers might offer Sport X variant at 48 odd lacs.

Re: The "NEW" Car Price Check Thread - Track Price Changes, Discounts, Offers & Deals

Asking for a friend -

Is it true that Mercedes Benz pricing is now handled by the corp office and dealers don't have a leeway in offering discounts etc.? We are looking at GLC and there are supposedly no discounts (except some nominal corp/professional discount). We don't have much experience in dealing with the Luxury segment, so wanted to make sure that we aren't being taken for a ride.

Also, what's the forum's view on:
- Extended warranty - Available for 4,5,6 years for approx 1.7, 3.4 or 5.2L respectively. Inclined to take this.
- Service package ranging from 1-10 years for upto 9L. Since we are unfamiliar with the sevice costs in this segment, I'm not sure of the value this brings.

In other words, request inputs from folks who have evaluated extended warranty and service packs on their mercs.

Thanks in advance!

I have received the exact same response 2 weeks ago from Delhi Silver Arrows dealer, no discounts at all on any car unless you are a doctor(and some other professions) or loyalty discount for being existing merc customer.

That's correct. Mercedes now follows a fixed price model. Here is the forum discussion:

Hello BHPians!,
I know KIA cars are in great demand, but is there any scope of negotiation or discounts from the listed price of the Kia Sonet on Kia's website.
I am thinking of getting the insurance myself and getting 5 year/ 120,000 km extended warranty instead of unlimited km warranty as well as 5 year My convenience package. I am not inclined towards the basic accessory kit of Rs,20,094 but will choose accessories as per requirement.
Any scope for negotiation or discounts here or any perks or addons I can get from the dealer?

Thank you! Its been almost a year and over 16000 kms since we brought our A4 home

I bought the 2+3 year extended warranty a few months into the ownership but haven't opted for the comprehensive service package as I feel it would cost the same to service over first 5 years.

This is about ~5-6L discount right? I would definitely opt for the 5 year package over 3 year so there is peace of mind. I'm assuming this is inclusive of insurance. Insurance is one place there is huge markup so do compare with outside vendors.

With supply chain issues and new model of how these luxury brands sell, I'm not sure if there would be too much inventory when the new one launches to expect deeper discounts.

You can check the new X1 here:
https://www.bmwusa.com/vehicles/x-mo.../overview.html

It looks much more premium from inside but at same time, looking at other recent launches, there will be a big jump in pricing and might go out of budget if you are already on the edge.
