Just received a call few minutes back that my car is getting billed in the second week of this month.

OTR quoted - ₹ 11,61,979
Corporate discount - ₹ 3000
Exchange bonus - ₹ 7000
Discount on insurance - ₹ 7000
Less Ex. Warranty- ₹ 16999 (Will opt for it at a later date directly till the 6th year/150000kms)

Final OTR - ₹ 11,27,980

Have asked for Scuff plates (non-illuminated), Seat Covers and Ambient floor light to be give free although this is yet to be confirmed.
Congratulations!!.
Good choice on getting the non-illuminated scuff plates. Coming to the ambient floor lights, they only turn on when the doors are opened and stay on for a few seconds post unlocking/locking the car, they are not always on. We had negotiated hard for free accesories and they ended up giving us the ambient floor lights complimentary since my dad mentioned that he's buying it as a gift for someone. They are worth it only if you are getting them for free, not worth paying money for it.

Thank you !

Sorry for going OT.

Honestly this particular variant does not need any sort of extra accessories on top of what we get. But we have the ambient lighting in our Innova and I am sort of used to seeing the floor light up in the evenings when we enter the car. I will get it installed only if given free and also only if it requires a plug and play installation(strictly no wire cutting).

Scuff plates is more for functionality, my Innova does not have them and the door sills have terrible scratches after 11 years of usage.

Other than that I have no intention of getting any form of paint protection (PPF/ Ceramic Coating/Teflon). I am extremely old school that way and I guess an annual detailing session should keep that black paint looking neat.

I had contemplated about buying a new car exchanging my Punto evo 90hp that has run close a Lakh km in ODO. Choices were ES and SCross and paid booking amount towards both. There was a thread in this regard as well to help me in taking a decision. Thanks for all members who gave their input.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/what-...ml#post5001983 (Punto 90HP replacement | Ford EcoSport vs Maruti S-Cross)

After detailed discussion with family decided on:
Our 2015 Punto to remain home as we cannot expect such a well built car at such a price in India anymore. Ignis that is the beater of family will be replaced by another petrol car primarily used by my wife. The replacement will be SCross.

Booking details:
SCross 1.5P Caffeine Brown Zeta
Booking amount 25000.
Delivery: Unknown
Discount: to be finalized based on month of delivery either in March or April of 2021.
Selling procedures of our Ignis delta is going on.

Hello,

Sure, my reasons were:

1. The driving dynamics, steering response, gearbox and handling in Ecosport felt a bit better.
2. Family preferred the Ecosport Sports variant looks and additional safety features(6 airbags). This made me bump up my titanium booking to Ecosport titanium Sports. Got a great deal as one of my colleague also booked though my reference.
3. Waiting period of Nexon was quoted as 17 weeks while Ecosport dealer promised within 4-6 weeks.

Coming to current status, me and my colleague both are planning to cancel our Ecosport Titanium S bookings due to dealer problems. Thankfully BHPian Shanksta mentioned about booklet which made me go back to dealer and insist on same. Hesitantly, sales manager pulled out docket when I mentioned that I will cancel my booking if proper docket number(booking reference) was not provided. Secondly, they had promised delivery within March at time of booking which they are now refusing. Also there were many other factors which led me to believe that dealer was not maintaining transparency.

When I contacted the second dealer here, he seemed transparent enough and also agreed to match the price offered by first with some more accessories thrown in. But, he was not ready to give the agreed OTR price in writing.

I am now looking at other options from other segments in case I finally cancel this booking.

Hope, this was helpful if you are planning to book your car in Kolkata

Congratulations on the Tucson.
Just out of curiosity, any reason of selling the Ecosport so soon?
