Does your observation look anything like this?

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Attached photos sorry I could not get a really dark parking to get the view, but even with a lit parking area the "yellow/Blue" tinge looks very evident.

I'd suggest creating a racket closer to expiry of warranty. To me seems pretty ok, maybe just a tiny bit of movement in the LED bulb that is showing the cut off in a different manner.

This is completely normal, as the cutoff shield is prominently dispersing light into several colours.
I wont be able to give you the technical terms behind it, but I can assure you that nothing is wrong with the headlights of your car.
Here are some pictures from the low beam of our 2.4 ZX.

It is not the cutoff shield but the actual projector lens assembly which causes the light to disperse into different colors. The headlight cutoff itself is provided by the aforementioned shield. Unless I am mistake, the Crysta like most other cars uses fresnel lenses as the projector which usually cause a yellowish tinge to appear. My E90 BMW as well as Hyundai Santa Fe both exhibit the same effect albeit with xenon lights.

If you'd rather have just the blue "flicker", you can swap out the lens with completely clear lenses such as those used by Infiniti (luxury division of Nissan here in North America). It will more than likely void the warranty on headlights however the upgraded lenses provide a much sharper cutoff and significantly improved light output.

I actually intended to write projector lens instead of cutoff shield, but made the mistake as I was in a hurry.
Yes, you’re right about fresnel & clear lenses.
The latter even lets the projector perform to its fullest, whereas the former detunes the same.

Any way thanks for the info , I was worried about spares for these limited editions.
Spoke to someone from the dealer and he got confirmation from Toyota as well.

There is no 5 speed MT touring sport any more. All the touring sports are 6 speed MT or 6 speed AT since October.

Looks like the 1800 call center is unaware and Toyota should rectify this. It clearly means there is a gap somewhere. Plus dealers are also confused.

Not that it matters to me any more as I just booked an AT, but any news on when these 6 speed MT boxes will trickle down to regular variants?

I went for the manual because I loved it much more than the Auto. I could not imagine myself driving an Auto Innova which was outright boring, and I wasn't able to connect with the car. Add to that my usage doesnot warrant an Auto as 80% of my driving is on highway. While Auto box is convenient, the FE is bad and so is resale. I don't think the traditional torque converters have an reliability issues and my purchase was based on my need and taste.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

How accurate is the news about 3% increase in Toyota Innova Crysta prices starting January 2018? Is it, 'likely' or 'confirmed'?

Confused, requesting thoughts. Does it make sense to go in for a 2017 model this month or pay the additional difference next month and get a 2018 model? Debating & confused since, there are no new features added or additional colors being introduced for the 2018 models, right?

Pros & cons welcome. Thanks.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Could any of the Crysta owners confirm this? I remember that Crysta has Driver Seat Belt warning along with front passenger seatbelt warning. I usually buckle up as soon as I sit in the car, so I didnt observe it keenly before. But off late, I realized that the Driver Seat Belt Warning is no longer shown on the console, even when I dont put on the belt and cross the 20 KMPH speed. The passenger seat belt warning still works though. Is this a sensor gone wrong? Any one else experienced this?

The warning chime will stop after a couple of minutes of driving, but the seatbelt light will stay on until you/your passenger buckle up.

Correct, which is exactly what I don't see anymore for the driver seat. Wondering if it's any sensor not working. My car's driver seat tracks are changed under warranty and I wonder if it's got to do anything with that.

Dropped the car for 30k service and asked them to check it. I also asked them to check for the reason behind steering vibration while braking at high speeds.

3% increase in price is confirmed and you should just go and grab one with discounts right away. And you are right there are no new features/colors that will be offered in 2018. All manufacturers have increased the price and Toyota will not miss this opportunity. You can get the car now and register in 2018.

There is a cable that comes from under body of the car that is connected to the seatbelt socket near center console. Most probably someone forgot to connect the cable back when they changed the tracks.
