I booked it on an impulse, and because the sales guys were prompt and enthusiastic enough to come to my house even at 7 pm to take the booking.

I took delivery of the car three days back. Delivery delayed by almost 2 weeks because of finance and registration issues. Delivered on 15-06-2010 evening. Decided on Classic Ivory instead of Platinum Black color. ICE transplanted from older car. Got underbody treatment (Wurth) done for Rs. 3750. Final freebies: Insurance (Royal Sundaram), Mats, Mudflaps, 3M paint treatment, Minda Remote locking and a Rs. 3000 cash discount from Tata's 'Drive your dream' offer.

Final amount paid: Rs. 5,12,000 on-road.

Here's the car all ready for delivery, with lemons under the wheels and everything. I got a bit too scared that I might stall the car, and ended up spinning the wheels!

Others : Got the Fiat offer of free insurance, extended warranty, Fiat First

The SP (Mr. Ganesh Ghodke) was offering me a BS III car which was ready in his yard at a cash discount of 15K. When I refused, he told me after some time that he would give 35K cash discount! :Shockked: Anyway, I wanted a new car and thought that an old car's plastics may not be that good, as has been reported here. What I want to know is whether Fiat has produced BS III spec GPs. Also, was I foolish to refuse such a large cash discount? Opinions anyone? Also, should I ask for the teflon coating? I got the reverse parking sensors in lieu of the Garware sunfilm he was offering.

Being a silent reader and having learnt through the process, have finally got a reason to contribute to this forum. Having read a lot of clouted (probably a strong word) reviews and responses about Scorpio, Safari, and Innova, was in doubt to buy Scorpio or Innova. Finally, the uirban persona within me won against the rural persona. Rural persona within me (which attributes to higher percentage, more like 80%) wanted Scorpio and the Urban persona required Innova. Having read about Scorpio and Innova getting picked up during elections and all the other pros and cons, decision was not easy at all. Ultimately my better half’s, being Urban, vote went for Innova and that’s it – the decision was made (don’t we all know about it). The distinct luxury in Innova and the balance of the MUV were also the deciding factor.

Both were TD’ed Scorpio (at showroom) and Innova (my cousin’s 3 months old).

When I started looking for a second car (first being WagonR, which would still be around after giving me a superb service for a GOOD 8 years), I started looking for a bigger version of WagonR. A SUV/MUV which can seat 7/8 people and should be value for money (a la Indian at heart (and head?)). Options within my budget were the trio (which are the first choices), mentioned above. Although I would want to drive (and will) it more on highways and semi-rural areas, it would be used in city driving too!

Booking Date: late May 2010

Would share more inputs of going through motions once I get the delivery and start revving it!
