Thanks cooldhaya. If i recall my search since beginning, i was inclined to Figo and now will be ending with one pretty soon. As far as offers are concerned i am unable to squeeze them more. So quite happy with the freebies.

Thanks Vijay. The whole thread can be renamed as Confused Hatch Buyer in India
. I tried my best to get more freebies and as suggested by you to opt for Underbody coating rather than teflon coating. They told me that they will look if my request can be accommodated. I also aksed for Car Body Cover as a freebie but it is still not cofirmed.

Great car,(and my favourite hatch in the market).
Thanks a lot AMG...yes back to the square one. That's why they say first impression is the last impression. To be frank never was able to detach myself from this machine. So finally ended with one
Booked the Figo ZXI 1.2 (White with black dashboard) today and paid the booking amount as 25k. Also submitted all the documents to facilitate the bank loan process. Preferred bank is SBI , loan amount as 2,50,000 INR with repayment tenure as 3 years and floating rate of interest as 10.75%. Learned that SBI increased the loan rate 2 days back only.
I told them that i will be doing a complete PDI before the registration. I requested them to give me the Goodyear tires and not MRF ones to which they replied that they will try as it come pre equipped from factory. The Figo is coming with Goodyear , Appolo & MRF tires.
Regarding the make of the vehicle they told me that it will be a March '11 model most probably. When i asked why not April'11 then i got a reply that they get the shipment in alternate months only ? Is this a valid reason ?
Regarding the delivery of vehicle , I was told that once the loan is granted ( which takes normally 4-5 days) my vehicle is good to be delivered in next week.
