Advise on new car
I am buying the new esteem vxi (black) and needed some advise on the following points
Do you guys recommend taking an extended warranty for the 3rd and 4th year ? what does extended warranty cover ?
I am staying in Mumbai and would like to know is antirust treatment is a must for the vehicle. If yes, which one? I have a choice of Fucot, Dinitrol, and some kind fibre glass coating. Lastly how much is it gonna cost ?
Simlarly what film do i put on the car ? garware? Vkool ? or any damm local make ?
I am told v-kool will set me back by 12,000/- bucks (minimum) whereas the local one can cost as less as 500/- any advantages of putting v-kool/ garware over the local make ?
Is teflon coating recommened ? doesn't is come off after a few months ? is it a one time process or has to be done every few months ? how much does it cost ? I always thought that normal wax polish was the best option.
Lastly as vxi comes with kenwood stero, how much does a compatible Cd-changer cost ? Im more keen on the capability to play cds rather than a CD-changer.

Congrats on your purchase.
Polishing your car once every three months is recommended, though there are some Team-BHPians (including myself) who do it more frequently.
Hope that helps

congrats on your new car,
i agree with GTO on the teflon issue.but there are other products like Amazing Glaze,Valuguard and 3M which are similar but differnt products.
i had coated my silver zen in 2001 with amazing glaze and now my car definitely looks better than newer cars.it is 3 yrs old but still looks better than one year old cars.
dunno if it is because of that treatment that i had done.but i wax it regularly every 2-3 months.i use a turle wax emarald series wax paste costing 975rs.for the interiors u can use STP Son of a Gun costing 160rs.for the tires u can use any tire shine foam from either STP or Turtle wax....
also invest i a good garage cover .uy can get one for ur esteem from maruti asa MGA.
and yes go for the extended warranty.

i had my cars teflon treated but now after the monsoons its back to turtle wax and maybe ill go pick up a machine to do the honours ..............
faraz congrats on your purchase .......
apart from the body treatment buy everything else from outside ........
an indash player is a good option but if u can fit a 2din player then go for that as that also allows you to play cassetes.
in mumbai you can go to opera house .....
u can put garware sunfilm , the good ones are for 900-1200 bucks ...................
