    Ankit,
             andydandy sent 4 emails to ACI and not the ACI sent him.

     

    my point is that mostly they have contacted us through phone/sms.i dont know whether any of the members have been contacted through email.

  2. I have not been contacted by Autocar for the 2nd round.

    I was intimated by them via sms on the 10th that I have been selected and will be contacted very soon regarding the details.

    But even after 4 email reminders neither did I get any reply nor any info regarding the 2nd round.

    I AM THOROUGHLY PISSED.

    My experience with Autocar has been for only 6 months and I must say it's not sweet.

  3. guys i think you all are missing some points here

     

    the initial cost difference between swift(P) and swift(D) is around 75000

    now if you are buying the car in cash (full)the only loss is the interest on that 75000.

    the saving is around 1.5 per km so,that can be easily recovered (wrt to interest,and service cost)in 10000km-12000km.

     

    the resale of a similar model diesel swift with same running as a swift petrol has a difference of 75000 only.this info. is from carwale.com

     

    the situation will however change if you buy car on EMI.the emi would cost you more,so the running must be justified in that case.

  4. I'm not complaining about the hissing' date=' it is like all other cars. But the (strange)engine noise in Swift diesel is annoying in city traffic. Swift/Dzrie owners do you hear the rattling like sound at 1800-2000 rpm while driving slowly in bumper to bumper traffic?[/quote']

     

    what kind of sound if you can give some details please?

  5. have youa nything in writing with respect to the waiting period.if you want i give you some email ids ,write to them and tell them the whole story.I have a swift dzire and the dealership was AAA VEHICLEADES IN DELHI.it was a new dealership and i was the 2nd person to book the car there,but at the time of delivery mine was the 17th car.vehicleades is of the same group i guess


  6. Well Cedia is LPG dude and doesn't make economical sense as the economy of LPG will over run the petrol one .CNG is better option one-third price and Lpg performance with good availability .......

    Actually CNG are better for diesel engines and LPG for petrol.

     

    but the initial cost of lpg is less than that of cng

  7. Discounts are both brand/model specific as well as dealer to dealer. Some brands have almost Zero discounts (Honda for one) while others have massive discounts (in whatever garb).

    The dealer specific discounts are  much smaller - prices seldom vary by more than 5k or so between dealers of the same brand/model.  These may arise from aggressive marketing (rare). More often they come from the need to shift a particular variant. He may have too many of a particular colour in stock!

     

    i agree ..

    dealers will always have something to offer ..and you can easily bargain on that
