First of all Thanks for TAI
for allowing us to share our views.
Finally after a long research (~2.5 months), I booked and got my first car "Grand i10 Asta" last Friday
I had an option to book it in Bangalore and Mangalore, since I work here in Bangalore but basically from M'lore
I started with Sportz version and got two different (telephonic)quotes from Trident (6.1) & Advaith(6.7) in B'lore which had 6k difference!!
So dropped Advaith and continued with Trident.
Here is the funny part, while enquiring in a cal, Trident offered mud flaps+ floor mats+perfume+idol free.. when visited the showroom, the guy said in a stiff tone "No Freebies "
Forgot to add one more thing, I was looking for a loan option, so was concentrated towards Blore Hyn dealers as it will be easy for me to process
My dad asked me to give a try in M'lore dealers and obeying his words gave me more 10k profit!!
Two M'lore dealers (Kanchana & Advaith) were quoting sportz for 5.91 and
dealer said me about new Asta version which was quoted 30k more than sportz version and they gave the banks details which can give me hassle free loans
And both were offering me all the freebies (mudflaps + mats+etc) And I started to ask some extra than these (Here comes the competition)
Adv: 50k ,
Kan: 5k !!!
Waiting period :
Kan: 1 week
I was totally wondering how such a difference !! and anyways got to know about cons of a huge booking amount through my friends and threads
And at last, after huge discussion Kanchana hyundai, Sales executive offered me Anti rust coating (3 years warranty ) or Vinyl flooring for free!
And after discussion with my dad, I asked him to take a TD of petrol vehicle He was too happy by its performance, feature and I booked it exactly on 7th day of my booking, got a cal from dealer that my car has arrived, asked him to give me a PDI before registration, all went fine it went for registration, Anti rust coating was done.
Dad wanted the car to be vinyl floored (1800k) and Zero Dep insured (15k), so he did the same and
I got my new car Grand i10 Asta (6.35lkh)
