For Denting and Painting,I have spent Rs.30K. Now Buying Process, We had booked Swift on January 3rd week,the waiting period was just 25 days.First,we had booked Sunlight Copper,but they don't have SC colour.So,they had Silver in stock and booked it finally in that colour.So,got my Knight on Feb 8th 2010.The dealer was Acer Motors.It was nice experience with them.The SP was Sridhar Reddy.

  14. Finally I changed my tires to Michelin XM2 185/70R14 after taking advice from my friend.My Michelin's are super silent and smoothest than my stock tires,JK Tornado.And my old tire front left side tire was torn on Sunday and changed the tires of Swift finally. Price-4875/tire With 4 tires-4875X4=Rs.19,500. The dealer of tires was Mohan Chandra.They did there nice work and owner of the shop TD'ed the car after installing tires and after W/A and W/B. My Father and My Driver drove the car.My Driver drove 3 Km and My Father drove 16 Km. What an impressive tires.They reduced Rs.4975 to Rs.4875 by Rs.100 Discount for Michelin. Overall,nice and amazing tires.
