Expected Delivery: Thank my Stars.... it is available for immediate delivery after completing the formalities. So most probably within a Week.

Dropped by the Capital Kia showroom in Adyar, Chennai today and was pleasantly surprised to find the Imperial Blue in stock. Booked it immediately.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

After exploring pre-owned small cars like Nano, Santro, Ignis, Wagon-R, i10 Nios with automatic transmission for my wife for city use and with higher seating for my parents, finally went on to book a new car which we would name 'Black Box'

Make : Maruti Suzuki
Model : Wagon-R
Variant : ZXI - AGS
Color : Pearl Midnight Black

Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : December 11, 2023
Expected Delivery Date : December 17, 2023 (available in stock)
Dealer & City : Mahalaxmi Automotive, S.B. Rd, Pune
Quoted price: Rs. 8.10L
Freebies : 5k + 5% off on accessories
Others : 25k year-end discount + 5k corporate discount.

Final price (after discounts and with accessories): Rs. 8.04L

Have asked the rear spoiler & ORVM covers to be painted in Fire Red shade. I guess it would look good on a Black car along with Silver skirting on sides and bumpers. Let's see how it turns out.

Make : Tata
Model : Punch
Variant : Adventure Rhythm Pack
Fuel : Petrol
Transmission : MT
Booking Date : 18th Feb 2023
Colour : Atomic Orange
Expected Delivery Date : 4 to 6 Weeks as per standard answer, but I always got my tatas delivered within 2 weeks
Dealer & City : Kaveri Tata & Trichy
OTR Price : Rs. 8,56,000
Discounts : Rs. 17,000
Effective OTR : Rs. 8,39,000


Usage : 500 to 1000 km a month, chauffeur driven for dad. I might use it only during refills and occasional work trips. So performance took the last seat in list of priorities.

Honestly only 3 priorities :

1. Should be safe & have strong build

2. Should be spacious enough with sufficient underthigh support in back bench

3. Should look good

Replacing my 2021 Celerio. Dad was in a minor accident, where a 2-wheeler rear-ended the celerio and the bumper just tore off. He was so disappointed with the build quality that we decided to let go of the car.

Attachment 2419997

Choice of colour took us back to 2009, when dad wanted to get the sunset orange of Sumo grande. But then, they told waiting period for that colour was 3 months. We wanted the car sooner and settled for blue. I had the tropical mist (same sky blue colour as in my Sumo Grande) for the Punch. But this orange display car impressed dad.
This booking was put on hold as the Maruti Truevalue guys messed up the celerio sale. I canceled the sale and retained it.

Now, it was time to fill in the vacant space that was left after I sold my kwid an year ago. Celerio stays for city runs alone. Gifting my dad a Punch Adventure MT in the same orange shade.

The effective OTR Price was 8.9 lakhs (increased life tax rate from 10% to 13% in TN). I negotiated 35k offer and paid 8.55 lakhs today. If the atomic Orange shade Punch MT I saw in yard hasn't been allocated to anyone else, I will be taking delivery by Monday or Tuesday.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

Been doing some crazy work travels, so apologise for the late post.

Had been looking at a chauffeur driven second car besides the Tucson for school runs and local chores, since work keeps me away from home. Didn't explore much, booked a Grand i10 Nios, but the dealership was arrogant about not letting us do a PDI. So cancelled the booking and went with the Ignis.

Special thanks to friends from Team-BHP Chennai for negotiating with the dealer and also helping us with the PDI. Can't thank them enough.

Make : Maruti Suzuki
Model : Ignis
Variant : Zeta MT
Fuel : Petrol
Color : Nexa Blue
Booking Date : September 16, 2023
Delivery Date : September 26, 2023
Dealer & City : Cresco Nexa, Kilpauk, Chennai
Freebies : Nothing
Discounts : Rs 63,000
OTR Price (list) : Rs. 8,26,072
Effective OTR : Rs. 7,63,072

Have employed a full time driver and the car has done 3K+ Kms already. First car from the Suzuki staple for me and I'm happy about the choice!

All Punch cars in the yard were allocated to other customers. I had to wait 2 weeks for a freshly baked sample to arrive from factory.

It arrived at the yard today.
Date of manufacture - 1st December 2023. Date of Billing - 24th December 2023.

I did a PDI and finalized on the seat covers today.

The "I Booked my Car" Thread-img20231231wa0044.jpg

Happy New Year folks!

And it turned out exactly as we wanted. Got the delivery in last week of December.
