  1. Ex-showroom Price of Car is the is the price at which a car dealer sells a car to Retail Customers which includes Dealer Margins, Transportation costs and applicable Excise, State Taxes and Octroi Charges. Ex-showroom Price is called the basic price of the asset exclusive of any registration, insurance or loadings. Ex-Showroom price is the cost that the dealer charges for procuring the car from the manufacturer and the tax that it pays to the state government on procurement. The state government charges excise duty on cars. It is also known as the supply price of a car. In some states and cities, ex-showroom price may also include octroi tax. This is the tax collected by the local authority for bringing articles from outside the region for consumption in that region. Ex showroom prices differ from state to state. For instance, ex-showroom prices are higher in Mumbai or Bangalore than in Delhi. What you are talking about is Ex-Factory price. It is the price Car Dealer pays to Manufacturer to lift the car from them i.e it is the price at which a car manufacturer sells the car. Ex-Factory Price Terminology is not so common as it is between the Manufacturer, Dealer
  2. Hello paragkeni, I would recommend the Suzuki Access 125. I have ridden a lot. A VFM scooter I must say, power packed, with decent mileage and atleast in Mumbai, Suzuki service centers provide decent support. Cheers, Venkys.
  3. Hi GTO, Having a great time here, thanks bro. Thinking of booking a TB500 this month.Let's just hope there no too much of waiting period for that. Can't wait to ride one soon.
  4. That's a lovely car. And as Indian traffic scenario keeps getting worse by day, introduction of new compact cars will be a great thing. Anytime better than the Prius I would say. And if priced reasonably, it'd attract the right amount of customers, or even more.
  5. Hello, I own a Pulsar 180 currently since last 3 years. I would like to move on to a much better option. I'm basically a touring guy with very less off-road rides. Please suggest me a good bike in a budget of around 1.5 to 1.7 lakhs and one which would be light on my wallet in terms of maintenance.
  6. Thanks PrancingHorse for such a warm welcome to the ACI Forum. I'll surely contribute with my reviews and photos soon.
  7. Hello friends, I would like to share my experiences with my Ford Ikon 1.6 (Tourmaline green). I'm the owner of this very comfortable, luxurious and power packed monster since 2008. I'm the 3rd owner of this beauty. I agree you people might already think this car's parts cost a fortune, but believe me, these quality parts from Ford very rarely need replacement or repair if maintained well. The air-conditioning is the best i found in the class of it's era. Ikon started to roll out with electric windows and power steering while other car manufacturers were still stuck on getting their cars to be more fuel efficient. Photos of my cars and additional comments will soon follow. Thank you, Venkys.
  8. Thanks Shashank, My love for bikes started since i was 12. I couldn't ride a bike then, for obvious reasons. By the time I turned 20, I had ridden almost 60% of all bikes starting from very basic to a liter class ones. I dream of owning a RE Classic 500 someday soon. I love to ride with my group and discover new places around. I'll be soon posting pics of my rides on the forum, if it's allowed. Regards, Venkys.
  9. Hello everyone, I gives me immense pleasure to be a part of this discussion forum. I'd love to contribute in a major way and also learn something new that i myself don't know. About me, I'm Anand, I drive a Ford Ikon 1.6. Also own a Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTSi. I've been fascinated with bikes and cars since my childhood. My first bike was a Bajaj Discover, but I'm attached more to my Pulsar. I hope you all like my future posts. Happy posting friends. Thanks, VENKYS.
  10. Hi, New bike test runs are always done this way. There are major differences in how a test bike looks and how it really rolls out in production. There are always thousands of man hours that go into thinking what should go where for the bike to really perform as the customer expects it to be (sometimes more that what's expected). And personally if you see a bike being tested, it's subjected to very harsh conditions, which a normal user won't even think of going through. For the parts to not damage and to reduce the repair costs, the bikes are a little modified to be simpler and very rideable.
