Congrats on your booking the shadow blue Vento. VW- Whitefield seems to be great in their approach to customers considering the other two dealers have ego issues!
Well volkman, in Hindi there is a very famous phrase: Ek hi thali ke chatte batte (loosely translates to they are all the same!)
From Facebook page of Volkswagen India about VW Whitefield from some irate customer: "Worst ever sale experience with a VW dealer , Apple auto pvt ltd. I am feeling cheated as even after paying the complete price as agreed by both the parties , A price hike was done. The sales team was rude and unprofessional and doesnt agree to give me the car as promised !!! This ordeal went on for 2 months and I feel cheated and harrased."

With my experience of dealing with both, was my inference. For example, VW -Downtown refused to do the VAS upgrade free of cost( 500 INR per activation) and more so they did say to come after a few weeks as they are booked with service.
On the other had VW -Whitefield has done the VAS upgrade free of cost( saved INR 2500) and also was courteous on say to bring the vehicle any time convenient!

after having booked the jazz and waiting a long time, burdened by the ever increasing prices of fuel, i decided to make the switch. Cancelled the Jazz with a heavy heart and went ahead with booking the swift.

Expected Delivery Date : 2nd April 2012
Freebies : None! Managed some discount on the insurance
Upgrading my dad's 2006 Swift ZXi at home to a new ZDi, which will give my Jet some company and will probably become my daily office commute vehicle as well
Make : Maruti Suzuki Model : Swift Variant : ZDi Fuel : Diesel Booking Date : 29th March 2012 OTR Price as on today : 8.16L Color : Silky Silver / Torque Blue (either of the 2) Expected Delivery Date : Around 10-11 months from now, ridiculous isn't it? Dealer & City : Sagar Automobiles (Bannerghatta road), Bangalore Freebies : Mud Flaps and foot mats Accessories planned : ICE upgrade, DRLs, spoiler, headlamp upgrade, upgrade to 195/60R15 Michelin Primacy LCs. Lets see how much this list changes by the delivery date. Still a long way to go.
We already had a blue Swift at home all these days and dad wasn't for upgrading to Torque Blue since it is pretty much the same shade, but I don't find any other color in Swift to be as appealing as the T-Blue. The older ferrari red is gone and the new red shade is too dark to look sporty. We have had 2 white cars earlier and don't want white. My T-Jet is black so I don't want another black car at home (more maintenance). No glistening grey either, that is also darkish. Back to square one - Torque Blue or Silky silver . Some suggestions would help
For now, I have given color choice as either Silver OR Blue. The salesman stared at me like I was some idiot when I told him that. Hopefully I can convince dad and get the sporty blue again.
