So let me give you a word of advice on Tata's AMC Vs Extended Warranty.
How to answer the question - Should I take it ?

Extended Warranty - ABSOLUTELY, without any doubt. Take whatever max you get. Donít think twice. If you or me are on this forum for so long, someday you will come back and thank me.
But now, extended warranty only protects against manufacturing defects.

So what about AMC ?
This one is a bit tricky to decide and my own thoughts are as below.
Service interval - Tata cars have Yearly major servicing and 6 monthly minor servicing.
AMC covers general wear and tear parts including service costs and some labour costs.
I feel it should be decided based on your running KMs needs. That means if you are one of those who drive 1500+kms in a month, take the AMC. it will be beneficial.
I have a few owners who have got their brake pads changed twice in 3 years as they had heavy running and covered 1 Lakh KMs in 3 years.
It covers a lot of other small stuff and the service staff is usually fine to accommodate parts change etc when there is AMC available.

So decide based on your running needs.

I saw few Altroz every time go out to drive. Generally, those are ones with alloys & fatter tyres. However, seen a couple of Altroz with thinner rubber & must comment that it looks horrible on thinner tyres. This car begs for wider rubber, just for aesthetics, & looks fab on larger tyres with thinner profile tyres IMO.

This mod actually goes to show how hot the stock design of the Altroz really is. One glance at this mod-job and I cringed and remembered just how well the stock Altroz looks. No offence of course, to each his/her own. I just didn't like the outcome here.

Absolutely, these alloys somehow are not going well with rest of the car's elegant design and color scheme, blacked out alloys would look much better.

Those alloys does not go well with the car. Stock Altroz looks way better. Not a fan of the width too..simply an overkill.

Does the Altroz Diesel run a SCR-DPF-AdBlue configuration or the cheaper LNT, (Lean NOx Trap) setup?

Altroz has LNT and DPF like the sub 2L diesel engines.
