Not sure if rubber mats were already present but as you can see in the list, they are also available as accessories. This picture is not from my dealer but he also had a similar list.

You can find similar list on Nandi Toyota accessories page.
What I meant was car comes with mats/mudflaps. I have made 4 purchases in last 4 years and not once in price breakup I was charged for mats/mudflaps. There was handling charges(was waived off couple of times) but not the accessories.
Below is one of old price breakup from Nandi, there is no charge for mats/mudflaps but the car did come with rubber ones. I do remember one other dealer did call out this separately.

Not sure why this is. I saw couple of walkaround videos of Crysta GX in YouTube, they didn't have either mud flaps or mats. I was there for Innova's PDI when the car arrived at the dealership and didn't see them installed in the vehicle. But Fortuner had mud flaps, I only got premium mats. Maybe it varies on the dealership level. Anyways not a big issue to ponder on.

That is a good 4-5 lacs hike on GX variant in 4 years i.e. 15-20% hike.

So in around 5 months, the price has increased by Rs 86000 (ex-showroom) since I bought it in first week of November 2020. The very few things that have changed since I bought - new infotainment, front grill and headlight design

Very valuable advice. I did a self installation and aligned it vertically. Even the LED manual doesn't mention about the alignment of LEDs

Thank you so much for the most vauable suggestion. Though it was a real pain to cancel the order and get refund from Autobahn Technologies. Really dissatisfied with their response and services.

The throw is amazing and it lights up the road supremely well. Even better than my BMW LEDs. Only got it replaced in the high beam and use it when needed as I feel it might be annoying for traffic coming from the opposite direction.

Will share the detailed pictures soon.
Oh Man what a light. Blaupunkt LEDs are super bright. I installed them in high beam. They are so bright that I have to use low beam in most of my drives.


This is the final setup in my Crysta GX AT

High beam: Blaupunkt LED 9X PRO 6000K

Low beam:OSRAM 46211CW

These are a generation old. Gen2 is available offline with dealers. However there was no dealer in my state and response from the company is pathetic.
Purchased them from amazon

They are bright enough and serve the purpose. However the light is pin pointed and does not illuminate the reflector at all. Planning to replace them with Blaupunkt T10 PRO. Have ordered the same and awaiting delivery. The Blaupunkt pilot with LEDs in 3 directions, I believe will illuminate the reflector better.

Aligning the Blaupunkt is much easier than Osram. Blaupunkt has a rubber washer which holds up well after the alignment screw is removed

As a seller I would rate autobahn 1 star or lesser. Why because 1) after taking money for expedited shipping (option given by amazon) they used the slowest shipping ever, and 2) they included a leaflet with the package asking to rate them 5 stars on amazon for warranty to start. So that is how they got mostly high reviews But F5 lights are good, I looked these up and since autobahn was selling it here decided to pick it up.

Very good! Do post some pics from inside the vehicle at night. How is the white of Blaupunkt, is it bluish?

this is a bummer! I booked my Petrol GX AT in January 2021 and the estimated delivery is by end of this month.

Will TKML/Dealer honor the pricing as on booking date, or will I be forced to pay revised prices (which would be very disappointing)?

There will not be any price protection. You will have to pay the price on the day of delivery.

Sharing picture with the high beam switched on and off. The difference is huge and offers tremendous visibility at night.

In fact, the output of Blaupunkt in the halogen setup is better than my X1 which has factory provided LED projectors.

Thanks for sharing the information on the MTM.

Wanted to check if it also doubles up as a dash cam, i.e. storing recorded videos, as I have come across the same in Youtube videos and also no mention about dash cam in your review notes (apologies if I missed that).

If I get the MTM installed outside say for want of night vision camera, will it void the warranty?

I took test ride and I am okay with the ride comfort/quality but was not sure of the long term ownership.

2. Heat Resistant Glass
Curious = Are these really effective? I got the test ride in a rather cloudy day in evening and the car was brought to my home with AC on. So, I could not differentiate.
39000 km in a little over two years on my Crysta ZX MT with 17 inch tyres and no issues at all till now.

I bought my Crysta just before they introduced the heat resistant glass. So I don't know about Crysta. But I do have the heat resistant glass on my Baleno and I find it pretty good.

6. Tax Collected at Source (TCS)
How has been your experience? How long does it take to appear in your Form 26AS to ensure Dealers are clean here?
The dealership threw in extended warranty (+2Y and +50000km) as a freebie after hard negotiation. don't think it is needed with my experience till now. But I think it is good to have just in case.

TCS reflected in my 26AS in less than a month.

I was trying to get updated prices (since Toyota increased prices of Crysta) from the dealer yesterday, and he told me that TCS has also gone up from 0.75% to 1%. Can anyone confirm that?

@raghukodali which dealership did you get the extended warranty (as a freebie) from?

Thanks!
