Wow, first New civic in TBHP I think. CONGRATS, how did you manage these freebies on such a new model. In Bangalore, Honda dealers wont even give a body-cover. Hope you have got your car by now. Awaiting your review.

Scorpio SLE - White
Finally got my loan sanctioned. Booked a white Scorpio SLE. If all goes well, should be able to take delivery by Sep 30th or so.

Finally decided scorpio it will be and ABS is the way to go.There are definetely going to be a few long runs on the highways, and the added safety of ABS is a must. Booked white SLE today. Hope to take delivery by 30th or so.

nvldvr 25th September 2009 21:00

Thanx buddy. And nope. No offers, no freebies. Still happy buying because i think its a great package anyways.

Anoop RD 26th September 2009 10:31

It is the same scenario every where, I too did enquire about SLE (which is in my favorite list also) to one of our local dealer and he said no offer, nothing. They know people will buy Scorp even if they won't give any offers.:)
