The website only mentions 4 colours (Silver, Black, Red and White) on the TUV300 Plus, with no Dual Tone options. How did you see a Red and Black Dual Tone TUV300 Plus, it may have been the <4m TUV300 and not the Plus model?

I am confident that it was the Plus version. The rear spare wheel was mounted right at the center, rather than the off-center mounting that the sub-4m TUV has. And, I did eye the extra room in the 3rd row's quarter glass area.

Maybe the TUV Plus' owner got an aftermarket dual-tone paint job done on it. A couple of accessories shops have offered to make mine a dual-tone car too.

Which is a pity! The RWD/RE Nano was, in my view, probably the most engineer-centric car to have come out of an Indian design studio. Almost all the others are clones of each other - FWD hatch-backs of one kind or another, apart from some of the SUVs (not the wannabe hatches-on-stilts-&-steroids). I've said this before, that small RE/RWD runabouts appeal to the deeps in many of us - one reason for the longevity of the original air-cooled beetle.

I think this is a logical place to mention that I've had to shelve - at least temporarily - my plans to buy the 300+. And go in for another Eeco in Lucknow (we have one in Mumbai) instead. It was a painful decision at the time but budgetary constraints (an expected windfall has been delayed) decided the issue. I've told the sad story at length in the thread "Maruti Eeco: Quick Test Drive".

My neighbour just bought a Red TUV 300 Plus P6. I saw it today first time under sunlight while I was washing my Aspire.

I am simply stunned to see the poor paint quality. Bumpers lack the glossy shine and feels like after market paint job. Body paint lacks the smoothness, feels like thousands of tiny waves are there all over.

He was asking me about what polish I used on my car as he too seemed bit unhappy about the paint quality when compared to my 20/21 months old Aspire. I didn't want to spoil his new car excitement so kept my thoughts to myself only.

Agree, I too faced similar situation with my black Tank. My wife saw a brand new i10 black and started comparing with my Tank, that color is not up to the mark with i10. We get what we pay. M&M is not known for it's paint job, but known for it's ruggedness, light on pocket maintenance and value for money. I owned a first generation Verna, and trust me it was very heavy on my pocket.

IMHO ford Aspire's red paint job is one of the best paint job's I had ever seen. It's cherry red and you can feel that it has thick layer of paint with eye popping color.

It’s disappointing to read about the poor paint job on your neighbor’s red 300+. I’ve owned a noble black (metallic) Scorpio for over 14 years and its glossy glitter retained the original quality for years. It did not require a re-paint till our unfortunate accident (March ’17) on the Kiccha-Bareilly highway.
Perhaps M&M are treating this model with negligence (due to the Marazzo’s success perhaps?) and almost makes me feel relieved that I had to change my plans for buying the 300+.
