The reason why I am asking is am confused between what color to choose for Creta when I book (soon!)
Black
Blue
Silver
Red
Yes we got the car home on 03/11/18. We already had a white Creta in our home, so white was not going to be the choice this time around. My father is quite fond of cars in black shade, we have owned many cars in that colour in the past. Black looks absolutely lovely in Creta, but its a difficult colour to maintain, do take that into account.

These are some random pics which were forwarded to me by my father, as Iím currently in UK and will only get to drive the new car in Jan/Feb next year when I visit home.

Congratulations!

Just a question.Why the different registration states?Is there a significant cost difference between PB and CH?

PB registration is a temporary one which is valid for one month as we got the car from a dealership at Ludhiana. This was mainly because no dealer in chandigarh had the particular variant in black shade available with them and were quoting a waiting period of upto 6 weeks. We have already applied for a permanent registration with Chandigarh RTO so the car will bare a CH registration only.

Regarding cost difference between the registration, I donít think there is much difference between the two. Earlier Chandigarh registration used to be extremely low(Rs.2500 for most 4 wheelers) but it has been brought on par to the nearby states in the last 3-4 years.

Not sure if this is the right thread for this post.


Dealer called me now and told the car is allotted and he said he has the engine number and chassis number. He said he will share in a short while.

He is asking me to release the fund from the bank (-loan) and pay him tomorrow as it is month end so that they can allot the car to me as I am special case for them, already 6 people are waiting in line it seems .

I know they are simply lying. Before doing PDI, do I need to get the bank money released and give the check to them? Whatever amount which I am gonna put from my hand can be paid later is what he is telling me.
As an icing on the cake, the Sales person told the car will be shipped from the plant only after partial payment.

Please guide or point a thread where I will get details on when to make payment..etc.

Big and emphatic No.
Don't fall for this You are special line. It won't even get a Tinder Swipe let alone a few Lakhs. Release the payment only after VIN check and PDI.
Always be vary of this jumping the queue and giving preference to you type of SA's. They are cheating not just one prospective customer but many.

I would like to request all members posting their booking details to also mention the Discounts they have managed to get. I see a lot of posts here where that part of the booking detail is left blank. I think it would of great help for fellow members considering the same car across the country. If you feel uncomfortable or have a commitment to the dealer for not sharing the deal, you can instead skip the dealer name and city you have booked the car in. Just a thought.

So waiting to see what next.

So finally, I booked a Baleno Delta CVT last Sat. Planning to take the delivery this Wed.

I went over many AMT threads, and was not very convinced about buying a AMT car. Wanted to buy something smooth for my father. Convinced that CVT is the way to go, zeroed down to i20, Baleno and Amaze. All of them were between 8L to 8.5L. Baleno was the cheapest with the features that I felt are necessary, except the driver height adjustment. Will adjust without that, no pun intended .

I got the VIN from the SA today - it is Nov 2018 manufactured. Tomorrow morning will visit the showroom for the PDI armed with the TBHP check list.

Make : Maruti Suzuki
Model : Baleno
Variant : Delta CVT
Fuel : Petrol
Color : Nexa Blue
Booking Date : 08th Dec, 2018
Expected Delivery Date : 14th Dec, 2018
Dealer & City : RKS Nexa, Jubilee Hills, Hyd
Total Discounts : Close to 60k including corporate discount, cash discount, etc
Freebies : Floor mats, boot mats and mud gaurds
Price On-Road : ₹7,99,000
Booking Amount : ₹11,000

The first Maruti car in my garage. Not overly excited, but happy that the car search is finally over!

Will be heading to the "I Booked my bike" thread soon - hopefully .
