  10. Check out the i30 i got to see in S.Korea , forum members any chance of this coming to india. Thread moved.BornFree2011-12-03 14:13:37
  11. First up thank you very much all the forum members for the various inputs given by all , which helped me immensely in finalising my choice . the ultimate choice was i10 1.2 sportz. I have clocked 2000 kms, trouble free running . After delivery I used the car for about 1000kms and then it was at a standstill asIi was out of town but then after coming back ,the car started in the first kick itself. so far so good, pleased with my choice with useful inputsfrom you all.
  12. hi friends as i am in south korea here i have come across a really gorgeous suv from the KIA stable it is quite popular here. i want to upload a lot of pictures , is there a easier way.
  13. hi friends , i am in South Korea now. koreans are very patrotic with regards to their cars . all around i see only hyundai's , Kia's , and daewoe's. i also saw the i30 its just good.i will post pictures of same.
  14. Yes i agree with the Dr ,Ritz zxi is a really good deal .You will get absolutely everything ABS , EBD .Its drive is simply great But however the only problems are the odd rear shape and visibility upfront if u are short in height.I could not digest the odd shape and hence went for the i10 1.2 sportz However though a great car , 5 adults would be a real squezze at the rear for the i10. Forum friends how is the Vista 90 BHP car because it is spacious and the saffire engine from fiat is quite reliable.
  15. Received my i10 1.2 Sportz on the 3.12.10. the Ice silver colour is just cool.the very next day we went (5 adults) to Mahableshwar a hill station which is around 150 kms from pune. the car handled preeety good even at speeds a shade below 100kmph. however at higher speeds it does not warrant the stability of its european couterparts.My earlier car a Palio was simply great in terms of ride and handling and felt like a tank .the differrence was felt by all my family members too. however to sum it all for a family this seems to be a perfect VFM.Except I feel the abscence of ABS and Airbags which was available in the Ritz for another just Rs.38000, the Asta is weee bit on the expensive side. I want to post pictures ?
  16. Thank you very much for that extensive and detailed reply. should I go for Insurance other than that offered by the dealer as its lesser in price Any more inputs from fellow forum members would be very valuable
  17. friends as I have booked a i101.2 sportz and expecting delivery in around 3-4 days , I have a few queries regarding the same. 1. Is it the dealer's obligation to call me for a PDI before its delivery and then subsequent registration in my name. 2. Is there any check list for an i10 1.2 PDI. 3. the post on how to find the year of manufacture was very useful , however what is the maximum acceptable age of a car at its delivery time.And what are my options to protest
  18. Many thanks Doctor for your valuable information. As you have mentioned I would upgrade to the 165/70 tyres from the stock ones.Any specific brand that is advisable. Also should I go for alloys At the time of swapping tyres ,please advise for the brand and specs. The OTR price Pune for the Ice Silver i10 1.2 Sortz that I have opted is 5.09 Lks (Did not go for third year warranty which is extra 2500 INR) with few free accesories (Matting , Mud flaps , parking sensor, filming ),I have also opted for Washable seat covers for 2400 and remote locking for 4500 ). No cash discounts offered , is it the same elsewhere or should I bargain hard for discounts. In the case of insurance there are cheaper options to what the dealer is offering .Is it advisable to go for them . Icici and Bajaj are giving good deals . what are key factors to be considered for any car insurance that is Do's and Do not's. Friends Please advise. Any i10 1.2 Owners ? what is the mileage that you are getting in city with AC

    Hello friends allow me to introduce myself .Well I hail from the Oxford of the East ,Pune .I am a marine engineer and an avid reader of autocar . any more marine engineers on the forum.
  20. Friends during the Test drive of the i101.2 I found the tyres to be bit narrow. should I upgrade to wider tyres .Please suggest the size for upgrade without affecting FE
  21. friends I have test driven all these 1.2 ltr cars recently and apart from the immaculate Swift ,The next best thing is absolutely Ritz .Its a great package ,its just the rear looks which is a big let down .otherwise its just a great car to drive even as compared to the 1.2 i10 VTVT (Sportz) .Moreover for just another 40K you get everything ABS,EBD,Fob lamps, Stereo. though in the above mentioned i10 variant you get a well integarted stereo but it is without ABS and EBD .Thus if are Ok with the looks just go for the Ritz Zxi otherwise the next best thing is the i10 1.2 Sportz. Correct me friends if I am wrong
  22. Friends , After cancelling Ritz , instead of going for Dezire I booked (And this is final ) i101.2 Sportz (5.09 OTR Pune). The colour that I choose is Ice Silver (Cool colour).Is the 1.1 better than the 1.2 in terms of FE and torque. Is the VTVT in the 1.1 as well. Please Compare and expand on this topic Thread title edited.BornFree2010-11-22 12:31:24

  24. Friends , I have decided to revert back to my original choice , the Swift Dzire Vdi for the following 1. Only 1.2 Lks more than the "Best" Swift 2. No evolutions to be expected at least in the near future. 3. Its the segment leader 4. Being a entry level sedan can seat 5 adults easily and has a bigger boot than any hatch . also its not so long and hence easily driveable in city traffic 5. I wouldn't have to think of upgrading for at least another 3-4 yrs. 6. Being a Maruti less maintaince and good resale value. What is the actual mileage for the Swift Dzire Zxi (Petrol), City/ Highway?? Waiting for all your inputs .
  25. Guys I am sorry to inform that I have held back my booking for the Ritz Zxi as I am unable to digest the shape of ritz . Definately in the medium term when i would want to upgrade to a bigger car ,the resale value of this car will definately suffer vis a vis other cars even like that of a Wagon R. Even all of friends are suggesting against it ,their point being that there are hardly any Ritz's being seen in pune , Swift Being predominantly visible. I am really confused After Swift thr Ritz is such a great car.
