Many congratulations As you would be aware, please do request the dealer to show you the car and do the PDI before making the full payment. Which color did you go ahead with?

So true, Toyota Original Accessories prices are easily 30-40% higher than the market. Given this, would be great if you can negotiate for at least 25K giving close to 10-15K of value.

However, some of these items aren't available with dealers (e.g. fog lamp then with my dealer) and some are priced even higher by the dealership (saying these prices are now obsolete).

I am assuming you are referring to the below link. Just to note, some of the prices in this link are lower than market too. For example 3D mats cost upwards of 6K in the market. I got AutoForm ones for 7.5K. 3.5K from Toyota is on the lower side.

Also please do let me know if you are dealer is indeed offering the TPMS for 3.5K + taxes. Would love to buy one as well. The Blaupkunt TPMS costs upwards of 7K in the market.

Will do that. I have downloaded the TeamBHP PDI checklist.

I am going for the Bronze colour.

Been able to get about 15K worth. Frankly, most of the stuff in the accessories list is chrome bits over an already over-chromed car, and I couldnít find much that I need. And the list is quite overpriced, I hope the quality is better than much cheaper stuff on Amazon.

A Tyre Pressure Monitor and Monitoring Camera were on my must have list, but the dealer does not have these. Will have to search for an aftermarket solution on Team BHP.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Does the Innova Crysta come fitted with ARAI approved anti-theft device?

It has the chip based anti-theft device which is standard across cars these days. However it isn't a device thieves can't break into. A fellow bhpian's Crysta got stolen from outside his house in minutes.

I would strongly suggest going in for a vehicle tracker and also using a brake lock when parking outside your safe campus (read the other thread)

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

This query about the anti theft device came up when I was filling the online form for car insurance.

There is a field where it specifically asks if an ARAI approved anti theft system is installed in the car.

The answer to this is NO, right?

It should be Yes.

The car is ARAI Approved. I don't think you can sell a car in India without it. The Innova does come with an engine Immobilizer which is an anti theft device of some form.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

I got my Innova Crysta Petrol ZX home. First impressions - everyone, (including the four legged member of the family ) is impressed, happy and comfortable.

It maybe a tad too early to start nitpicking, but some observations I had in my first 100 km.
  • The well of the driverís centre arm console is too deep and large. Stuff kept in it seems to get lost.
  • The USB connector for Apple CarPlay was little awkward. Where does one keep the phone? The little slot next to the USB connector doesnít hold the phone very well.
  • The ORVMs do not auto fold when the car is locked. Am I missing some setting somewhere?
  • Couldnít figure how the DRLs function.

I request experienced owners to comment and suggest a solution or workaround to these issues.

Congrats on your Crysta, please do share some pictures of the car .

1. The ORVMs do not have the auto open-close feature on locking-unlocking! Itís available as an accessory.

2. Crysta doesnít get DRLs, they are parking lights (the 4 LED dots that light up in the headlamp).

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

In case if you are open to go without hardwiring, I have done something like this, not so neat but not very ugly either. So in my case it's camera mounted on the dash board and routed without hardwiring. I routed the wire along the edge of the dash and windshield, then along A Panel and finally through the door side and under the dash to the front 12 volt socket.

Used the below wire holding clips, but realised that the Chinese brand had 3m double sided tape mentioned for bottom which I found frequently coming off so ordered the below double tape and it has been working like a charm. This tape is heat resistant.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Dear Owners
I want to understand how intrusive/how irritating are below for Innova Crysta BS6 models.
1. 80+kmph: Is it single beep or continuous beep?
2. 120+kmph: Is it single beep or continuous beep?


I gather from this thread that in Diesel AT one can cruise at 100 KMPH with engine RPM at 1500-1600 and engine sound is barely audible inside cabin.

So, in such cases, how intrusive are the speed beeps?
Has anyone been able to switch it off - either with help of dealership or on their own.

At 100kmph, the engine is barely audible once it gets into the fifth or sixth gear. The 80kmph speed beep is quite bearable since it happens once a minute of consistently being above 80 or every time you cross 80. If the music system is playing something at normal levels, the beep is almost overpowered. The 120kmph beep is louder and more frequent which is annoying. Even at this speed, the engine will still be around 2k RPM and outside noise is pretty controlled. Hence the 120kmph beep is pretty loud and annoying. I am on the lookout for some solution and would really appreciate if someone can figure out something. I am sure it would be done considering the fact that the car is mainly brought by mile munchers who would spend a considerable amount of time on the highway.

The speed warning removal can be done easily. However please keep in mind, this is an illegal action. Your insurance claim could also be rejected if God forbid you land in a high speed accident. There have been cases where authorities have conducted investigations into tuners who have done this.

Also, most countries have a speed limit of ~ 100 kmph for highways and this has been kept in mind while developing this speed warning feature. In our country one of the main reasons for road accidents is over speeding. Encouraging removal of such warning will most likely result in over speeding and defeats the greater good.

Would you also elaborate on how it is done or who does this? I'm specifically interested for the Innova. We have discussed enough about the legality part so I'm not focusing on that part of the discussion.

This is done by connecting a scanner and doing the delete ! There are tuners after market who can do this !
