I cant tell you how excited I am and my feeling while being able to finally write a ownership review. I am sure this won't be perfect one but, this definitely means a lot to me as I have been waiting for years for this time to come.
So here I am very excited to announce (though many of you would have already know about it, thanks to your valuable guidance that you guys provided during my selection process) that time during coming week My Wagon R Lxi CNG would be coming home in Bakers Chocolate laden colors.
When it comes to idea behind buying, cars shortlisted, car bought and why this particular model, I think I would like to skip this part and guide you to real time as it happened scenario leading to this selection. Please do review below mentioned thread of mine which takes care of who buying process, my specific requirements and my reasons for selection.

I will surely be regularly updating it with my experience, thinking and findings about my car post I receive the same sometime next week. What I have experienced till this point of time has already been summarized in the thread mentioned above.
In the next post in this Thread I shall be posting about by Sales experience and Loan approval experience till date. On the cost of vehicle there is nothing much to share as Maruti dealers are not much interested in making a discount sale, all I got was OTR of 4.85L with a 8K free ICE system.
Till the time I take delivery of my car, I would like to utilize the time to finalize some of the accessories for my car. Thinking should I start a new thread for it or should I do it over here? Any suggestions?
One of the core things I want to know is should I go for under body rust proof coating as rains are on their way? Also I already have a thread started to finalize my ICE, please drop by and provide inputs if you can
ICE Finalization for my Car: ICE Suggestions For My New Waggie
Dealership: Regent Autolinks Pvt. Ltd, Ghaziabad Vipul Motors Pvt. Ltd, Noida
I am considering both the dealership for review because TD, information gathering and negotiations went on with both of them till I finalized and booked with Regent.
It was Vipul with whom the conversation started. Like any other Ms dealership I was offered no TD for a CNG variant and its was VXi that was offered for a ride. No issues in having a TD booked either are dealership or for one over home. They were helpful enough and generous enough to guide me to their other dealership where a CNG variant could be offered for a TD.
The only negative that I will associate with Vipul was their non-desperate attempt of salesman to sell the units, probably because we walked to store and not a direct lead of theirs. They answered all questioned post their brief overview of variant and cost details (all this within showroom) and they really were not interested in selling the car to us once we insisted to move out and check out the car.
On the other hand once the car was finalized, I was looking for a good deal. They were professional and comfortable to deal with but were not interested in cutting any deal. Not even agreeing to deliver my choice of color. Hence moved out and took offer from parallely negotiating Regent.
I was referred to Regent by a relative who has good experience and deal from them when he purchased last year. I was not very optimistic about them as they were far away from my place. Then one of my co-workers was linked as well and this was comforting as now I was sure, whatever deal they offer Vipul will never be able to match it.
The sales person approach (through reference) was generous and helpful enough. Came down with TD vehicle 2-3 time to my office (35 kms from his dealership) without reluctance. Spent 4-5 hours with me during loan processing and accessories finalization and PDI check. There are no issue or reluctance when I requested for PDI check and even took me to stock yard in heavy rains and waited patiently till I completed PDI check to my satisfaction.
The only negative that was the fact that SE's has no clue on technical aspect. I requested if Techo can be integrated in by dashboard like a VXi and he was clueless. It was post this time he become little uncomfortable dealing with me. Overall the experience has been good till this time but there are important check points ahead and I shall keep posting about it as and when it happens.
