Kindly suggest if I need to get some / all of them from the Nexa showroom itself or get it done outside.
Cushions - The one offered is Nexa looks & feels fine to me. Are they really useful?
LED Sill Guard - I would prefer a non-LED version but MGA person said they have only LED version.
Mat - Shall I go for the ones offered under MGA or go for NOMAD matting @ any 3M Car Care store?
Back Door Chrome Garnish
Hertz Subwoofer & Amplifier - The MGA guy mentioned that it would cost around 16000 Rs. He also mentioned that the subwoofer would fit in the front doors itself. I'm somehow not convinced about it. Not sure if he's talking about subwoofer or component speakers.
Alloy Spare Wheel - I may need to do a tyre upgrade as well. Is it worth it?
Kindly do also suggest any other accessories that I might have skipped in my list above.
I also need to understand if I need to go for a Teflon / Underbody treatment from showroom itself or subscribe for a package from 3M. Is it worth the money that is being charged.
Thanks a lot
Sorry for the late response.
Air freshener - Avoid it. Instead go for ionizer that's available in e-bay. Your car will be free of any odour and smells. Even the new car smell also will fade away in few days.Its damn cheap and can be used for years - no refilling/replacing etc. Search for car ionizer in e-bay.
Cushions - go for it if kids are around, else not worth it.
Side Moulding - looks good for Ciaz if it doesn't have too much of chrome.
LED Sill Guard - I suggest go for the ones available in e-bay or check with any Maruti Suzuki showroom with accessory unit. Chances are there they might still have a few in stock.
Mat - The one provided by nexa doesn't cover the floor at the corners. If they are giving FOC take it. Go to local accessory shop and get a 3d mat for not more than 2K. That's sufficient.
Trunk Mat - The one which comes with the car is good. No need add unnecessary load.
Back Door Chrome Garnish - Not worth it.
Hertz Subwoofer & Amplifier - Its your choice.
Go for under chassis coating. Teflon is not worth.
Get the door edge guards installed.
Buy Jopasu car duster from amazon (Only if you are cleaning the car). It can be used daily for removing dust as its for dry use only and the results are amazing. You will love using it.
