Excellent review Vibhor
The service intervals have been increased to 15000 kms as against 10000 kms after 2 services. This point can be included just to sum up the confidence of TML on their new engine.
I have got 4 free coupons which can be used for 3rd year or 45000 Kms, so 4 services are free not 3.
Just found out from one of the photos that we are using Sony DSC W200 for the pictures. If we could upgrade to a DSLR(Entry level at least) it would be great. Because these reviews will last for ever and would be seen by many people, So I feel the photo quality should be good. Interior photos will be dull or shaky with those compact cameras IMO
. Just a thought.

How much spare alloy wheel cost you ?
have you opted for paid AMC ? if yes - why so ? if no - why not ?
were there any hidden charges demanded by dealer after invoice is generated ?
If the car will be parked in covered parking. pls suggest type of seat covers to buy.
There are no recommended accessories as such but depends on an individual. Since Zest doesn't come up with mats and mud flaps also, these are a must. The mats provided by the dealer are of good quality. Frequent highway might need a puncture kit.
The spare alloy wheel costs around Rs 4500
I haven't opted for Gold AMC, since I don't drive daily and don't think its needed. If you intend to use the car daily or a frequent highway crawler you can opt for it.
There are no hidden charges.
Seat covers depend on the climate of your city and budget.
If there is lot of heat then art leather seat will make you to sweat like a pig for sure. But it looks great and adds to the beauty of the interior. Also it can be maintained easily.
There are art leather covers for 15-20k which they claim the heat is reduced marginally by 20-30%, I am not sure of how true the percentage claim is.
Fabric seat covers are good and cheap compared to art leather but maintenance is tough. Since it absorbs the sweat, tends to stink after some time.
Do you want me to write about pure leather ?? If budget permits go for it.
