Thanks for sharing. I am discussing with Dakshin for a MT. Additional 5 K cash discount. That's all. No other freebies.
Did your dealer add a Logistics & Handling charge?

Hi,

Manual City cars have a 30K cash discount. Please check here https://www.hondacarindia.com/offers.

The dealer is charging me a 5300/- handling charge. Road Side Assistance is 5000/- for 5 years. Insurance is 40K. Zero dep charges are around 10K.

We changed the color to Golden Brown as it is readily available. We also felt Pearl White is too good, and if we don't maintain it well, then it's disrespectful to the color. I do not have a clean maintenance history with any gadget or my Activa. Thus, the Golden Brown color felt like a sensible option for us. Moreover, the gold glittering is very nice, which is more eye-catchy than the meteorite grey color. We did the PDI on Saturday (12th Nov) and gave a green signal for delivery. Expecting delivery by this Friday.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

After a lot of deliberations and postponement of purchase decision, i finally booked Honda City 5th Gen (ZX CVT Lunar Silver) at Dakshin Honda, Mysore Road, Bangalore on 7th Nov. Did PDI last week and looks good overall. Taking delivery of the vehicle next week.

Are accessories (basic kit and others) worth the price ? Any freebies that i can ask for ?

Did I really read it right?!!! 105 weeks is more than 2 years of waiting period!!! I mean, that simply sounds unreal! Did they quote any reason for such absurdly long waiting periods? I still am not able to get my head around this!

The ownership thread should be up in a few days' time once I have the car with me.
The Polo has been sold to a scrap dealer after 9 years, 1.78 lakh km and an engine seize followed by a shoddy repair job by the FNG. Itís a long story which Iíll save for the ownership thread update.

Booked our new car last month and has reached the dealership. Got the PDI cleared by a BHPian and paid the full booking amount.

This was indeed one of the most painful experiences I have been through Shibu. I cried like a child that evening when they towed the car away! I guess I grew too close to the car over all these years. With the all the places weíve travelled to with friends and family, all those DIYs I had attempted and learnt from the car. But at the end of the day - itís a mechanical assembly. Iíve vowed not to treat my cars with so much of sentiments henceforth.

Anyways, when the last update comes up on the ownership thread, donít miss that!

Have been following your Polo thread since before I achieved adulthood, your plaintive words really show the sorrow and remorse the Polo left behind. Sorry about what happened man but it couldn't have had a better owner, eagerly waiting for the final update.
