My personal experience is that I took extended warranty only for my swift and that too was un-necessary. Never took it for my Estilo, Ciaz and now XL6.

I drove only 15 km from the showroom to Madhu's to get the tyres changed so cannot really say. But in my swift when I changed from Bridgestone to Continental, there was a huge difference in terms of ride quality and NVH. Changed it around the 30K mark due to lots of noise.

I am contemplating between seltos and xl6 too and have seen changing the tires and wheels makes a big difference to the overall appeal of XL6. Was curious to know how the ABS and ESP do after the change need opinion of fellow Bhpians.

While the change in wheels do contribute to the visual appeal and stance of the car, I wouldn't recommend fiddling with the current setup, except may be changing to better rubber.

Had the misfortune of spending time in a car which had 16 inch wheels and low profile tyres. The ride quality was absolutely pathetic. The current ride is very plush and I wouldn't recommend fiddling with the setup.

Also, if you try to make wheels flush with the super thick cladding, do remember that the metal wheelarch is still the same as Ertiga and at any undulation and under load, the wheels would touch the arch.

Shashi

Thanks a lot for the quick reply Sashi, I do understand that lower profile tires make ride bad, do you think moving from 185/65 R15 to 205/55 R15 will make huge difference the profile height is almost same between the two, I understand some bhpians did the above change in XL6, wanted opinion on how it feels also does steering effort increase?

No, keep the profile same and ride shouldn't suffer much. Although I'd like to hear DBHPian ParagSachania's view once. He had 205s on his Ertiga once IIRC. I want to know if the stock alloys can take it.

Sorry I meant 205/55 R16

Rohin4410 did a nice upgrade, waiting to hear from him.

I feel the Zeta is a better bargain than the Alps considering the 80,000 price difference and only 5 differential features. The leather seats I would prefer to get custom made from a good vendor and on the accessories list Nexa is quoting the reverse cameras at 4900. Once the loan quotes are in place will go and book the Zeta in a day or two.

The stock can certainly take it and 205 profiles were the set of tires that I have driven most in my ownership till now (more than 93,000 Km).

I recollected posting details in the XL6 thread with images to show the difference between 185, 195 and 205 and how they fit on the stock rims. This post should guide you in every way to get realistic, tried and tested feedback from my ownership so far.

The summary in that post was as below:

Quote:
If you want to upgrade to 195, the stock rims should work well. If you want to upgrade to 205s, the stock rims will still work but you are not doing justice to the tire width which will remain unused on both the edges due to the bulge. 205s best fit on 6 or 6.5J. Even SX4 Z variants that came with 205s were on 6.5J if I remember. So, if you want to upgrade to 205s, pick a good set of alloys but also ensure that these alloys have the right offset that it fits well within the wheel arches.

Oh ok. That's nice. I will check with the SA today.


But doesn't the Alpha come with a reverse camera. The 5 points of difference between zeta and alpha as per the broucher.

Leather seats
Leather wrap steering
Reverse camera
Remote button touch folding side view mirrors
Vanity mirrors with lights on the visors.

Would suggest you to check too Incase it should have come as a standard fitment.

I have purchased the XL6 zeta and reverse camera is definitely an accessory. Sorry for the confusion.
The dealership had some Chinese reverse camera for ₹3500 with them when i booked the Xl6.
By the time i completed the loan process they received a new camera used in alpha variant which was for ₹4000. It is snug fit as in Xl6 alpha, the Chinese one was bulky. But the guide lines in display don't change directions as in alpha variant.

Finally booked the Zeta auto in Magma Gray at Seva Nashik. The dealer isn't giving any discounts or freebies as there is a waiting in the vehicle.

But he is insisting that if I pay by CC card then he will charge me a 2% transaction fee. Is this allowed or correct. Pls kindly let me know, as I would like to pay via my company issued card and it would be of big help to me. TIA

Is anyone using Suzuki Connect, Nexa's telematics solution with XL6?

I have been trying to figure it out with their dealers without much success.

Suzuki connect

Its similar in many things like jewelry/property etc. Its at the seller's discretion & there is no question of correct/allowed in this.

Generally the credit card companies charge ~2% of retail amount as service fees per transaction. (Remember fuel surcharge?) In small day to day retail transactions - the fees are absorbed / borne by the seller since credit card usage brings more business to them in addition to cash-customers.

For large transactions, 2% of 12Lakhs for example is a hefty amount. Its quite understandable that the dealer won't be in a position to bear it. It will have to be borne by you or they'll simply decline accepting credit card - which they are fully entitled to.

I suggest you use wire-transfers (RTGS/NEFT) or cheque payment over credit card for this type of a transaction.

I have suzuki connect installed in my XL6. I got it after nearly a month as Maruti was doing R&D as per the sales team. I am able to track the car and look at my trips but some of my trips go missing and as my parking is out of cell coverage I get the message " not connected to the internet". Please let me know if you needed any specific information.
