Congrats iliketurtles, and dont worry about the freebies. we will not stop trying!!

Congratulations on your purchase!
The Altis Automatic is an awesome car to drive (unlike its manual counterpart).
In Mumbai there is a blunt 'NO NO' on accessories discount wherever i enquired, the reason being "sir, the car has just been launched"

Thank you for the wishes, found this new gearbox quite refreshing compared to the earlier auto box toyota had to offer which was quite slow to respond.

Congratz @RIC - you have made a wonderful choice. Do not go for the 3M body coating and under body anti-rust coating. Try to get OEM seat covers of you like them, trade the 3M coatings for this.

Thanks @theexperthand. They were adamant on the body coating, but refused it. Took the delivery on 3rd, 3 days after my pdi its a wonderful car. I am thinking of getting the ICE done (on a budget though) before seat covers, starting to hate the OEM speakers.

Make : FIAT
Model : GP
Variant : 1.3MJD EP (90hp)
Color : Medium Grey
Expected Delivery Date : 2 weeks
Dealer & City : VST Motors, Chennai
Freebies : Mats, Mud Flaps and SunFilm was offered. I rejected these freebies instead told the SA to give more cash discount
Price: OTR: 7,55,000 [ ~50k+/- discounts insurance+corp+cash discount+others]

There was some confusion with choosing the color between Minimal Grey and Medium Grey I felt the door handle chrome strip will not gel well with Minimal Grey and hence finalized Medium Grey. I hope it looks good.

Congrats Sree_hari82 on a wonderful car. i was told medium grey is not coming out anymore for my 76, its a beautiful color. make sure you get the mud flaps atleast. though they look ugly, you need'm in these rainy days.

Congratz again. ICE and budget usually does not go hand in hand ;) Do post the ownership report and it will be nice to discuss ICE options there.
Wish you lot of fun filled kilometres.

Congratulations on the booking but seriously are you going to wait for 6 months to get hold of the car. What in the interim?

Enjoy the wait.

Thanks. Got my WagonR till then.

The wait is going to be killing, but I couldn't find anything else that pulled my heart the way the swift did. :-) Wanted it 6 years back, but couldn't. Now, tried reasoning and valuating competition, but its the new swift that won heart and mind again.
