@mods : Can we add one more Parameter of Price to the list of Make, model, etc.

This would be a bit helpful if one mentions price OTR and discount in the parameters as others can atleast get an approximate understanding of what discount is offered elsewhere.

Hello all

I'm going to book my Fiat Linea Petrol Emotion Pack today. I'll opt for medium grey color most likely with flamenco red as second choice if there's quicker delivery assurance. Pretty excited today and waiting for clock to jump to 5 pm!!

I'm just going to pay token money today. Do I have to sign registration papers today itself?

I had seen a Grey colored Linea as a display model in BUB (If u r purchasing from them). Be aware !!! Dont be in hurry. Make sure you are getting a fresh model which is not used as demo car.

Hi,

For the last 4 years i have been driving my Esteem and it is one of the best car to drive and now it is time for changing my car.

Now my search starts for a new vehicle, i initially thought of going for SUV like Safari or scorpio etc, then i changed my mind to Sedan that too a Diesel one then went back to small car. finally decided on going for Small car.

now again the confusion starts, is it petrol or diesel?
i drive only about 800KM in a month but this does not limit going for Diesel where the latest Diesel engines are more FUN to drive factor, so i am worried on missing FUN to drive factor if i buy a petrol car.
while i was doing this permutations and combinations for the last two months while am still driving Esteem, my office is near cunningham road and i drive from HAL to cunningham road driving in peak hour traffic and i nearly take 45 mins to reach office and one hour again to reach home.

The average speed of our driving is not more than 10-15 KMPH within city and stress is always high while driving in bumper-bumper traffic or during any traffic JAM, It is not that we rarely get into traffic JAM or bumper traffic but we see experience it on day to day basis.
so i decided on going for I10 and BOOKED Automatic Sportz model, the price diff between sports and Asta(top end with ABS/Airbag) is almost a Lac.The onroad price is 5.22 Lacs for I10 Sportz Non mettalic, While color.
Free accesories - Hyundai remote locking and floor mats etc.
I bargained hard for additional accesories like parking sensor, fog lamps but couldn't succeed. I booked from Advaith Bangalore.

By default car comes with Bridestone shoes, i am now looking for Yokhama broad tyre and alloy wheels, can anyone good shop in Bangalore JC Road or Indiranagar area?

Will post photos and initial driving experience in the right section.
