There are a lot said about this. Does it make a difference if we keep driving the car till the low fuel warning comes up? Post that the car is good enough for another 50-60 Kms generally so does it cause any harm if we keep refilling it when the light comes on?

It is recommended to fill up before one hits the low fuel. More so on Highways. Low fuel puts unnecessary stress on the fuel pump. I think it is mentioned in the Owner's manual as well (page 46 and 49).

It's amusing how your personal preference becomes a car's capability.

My last post on this point.

I am wondering if I should wait for a newer revised version or get the current one.

Checked out the Nexon again yesterday. Getting in and out is a major pain, unless the seat is pushed into a position that's uncomfortable to drive.

Tigor on the other hand was better in this respect. The sloping roof line between the A and B pillars is the culprit here.

I am wondering why you would find Tigor better! Was the steering at a lower angle? or was the seat set high?

I am 5.9ft and 100kg and have never found it uncomfortable.

The roof line of the Nexon is a little more sloping than the Tigor is what I think. That inch or two makes a difference, at least to me.

The SA did get in and out easily but I guess I am lesser of an athletic now.

If its the pure driving experience that you enjoy - get the current one. It has sufficient creature comforts, best currently available certified safety & good fun while driving. It will save you a lot of bucks since there are good discounts right now & the facelift most likely will come with a price bump.

If you are also interested in the number of buttons on the steering and other electronic gizmos - then wait for the new one as it will mostly get more of these.

Yes, there is a way of course. Long press the MODE button on the console till the "0" service reminder starts blinking. I think it takes about 10 seconds or so. After it starts blinking, release the button. Then press it again & hold the same way. After another 10 seconds or so - the reminder will be gone. Hope this helps.

My dear friend Malwett got an incredible after-market touch screen fitted in his XM. Going a bit further, he added these cool 'Transformer Series' alloys - which has indeed transformed his ride.

I've a request to owners of diesel Nexon. Can you please take a clear snap of the firewall and show me where are the grommets located so that a wire can be passed through it from inside of cabin to engine bay? Also to owners of the variants which came without fog lamps who have got fog lamps installed. Can you share the way how wiring has been done? I need to see all this as a non BHPian friend of mine, who owns a top diesel variant (manual) wants to install projector fog lamps and that install has to be done by me. We cannot take the connection directly from the stock wiring as the Nexon fog lamps have cornering function and it illuminates the HIDs when taking a turn. That could damage the bulbs. Thanks in advance.

Here you go. Pictures from my XZ+ D. Apologies for the lighting, no matter what settings I tried, this is how bright it would get. Perils of an underground office parking!

Driver side grommet -

Personally I'd use this one to run the relay switch wire. Its right behind the engine, besides the steering gear. You won't miss it. This will send the wire right in the driver foot-well. I think this is best for easy wiring afterwards.

Pierce a hole in this, run the wire & seal it off with silicone sealant after installation. You can install the switch on the RHS of the dashboard near where the driver's right knee would be. Simplest & convenient installation.

Passenger side grommet -

Its right behind the fuse box. Well placed & any water reaching here is quite tough. But that would send your wire into passenger foot-well & then you'll have to run it to the RHS internally. This is very near the battery though.

----------

Did a quick DIY over last couple of days. A large (relative on Amazon.in) size compass vinyl decal applied offset on the bonnet RHS to make the car stand out a bit in a sea of whites out there. Costed only Rs. 229 on Amazon.in. Very good quality.

Took 15 minutes for install including a quick shampoo pre-wash & drying. Did a dry install as the size didn't warrant a wet-mounting. I wasn't looking for any millimeter perfect line matching and precision anyway. Its an abstract.

Also made the squeegee as a DIY using 4 outdated loyalty/membership cards.

Anyone purchased a Nexon XZA+ recently in Mumbai/Pune? Any idea of the discounts going on for them?

The primary "official" offers applicable for XZA+ right now are as follows -

Petrol -
15k cash discount
25k exchange bonus
7.5k corporate discount

Diesel -
25k cash discount
25k exchange bonus
7.5k corporate discount

There is a lot more to it in terms of better valuation of your old car (much better than cars24 etc. for sure), discount on insurance, 10k odd worth of good car accessories. I know it first hand. But those offers are "unlocked" after you actually make a booking. PM me in case you are looking for a good deal in Pune. I can connect to a good sales rep.

Also - the offers will start fading soon as car makers will start preparing for face-lifts, BSVI engine moves etc. Cars like Nexon don't have any inventory. All are getting "fresh" cars made 1-2 weeks before booking. So TML doesn't have an express need of stock clearance discounts as such on this car.

Maruti in-fact went ahead and said this is the peak of discounts and they'll be pulling back consumer offers post festivals.

Wow, these alloys look smashing on the car. Honestly, I am not a great fan of the alloys on my Nexon but they grew on me slowly. Tata motors has a lot of scope for innovation in this department. Their design with the car is top notch but sub standard alloy designs let the car down. Even the new Altroz hasn't got a great design either.
