Thank You All for the wishes. Sorry Folks for late reply. Multiple things going on.
@ Tenida , thanks for hacking the thread and leaking pictures
Anyway lets continue where I left.
With the month of May coming in and already decided on Tigor AMT I was waiting for good deal for buying same. The AMT comes in two versions only XTA and XZA and it was easy to make choice for XZA as the other one does not have dual airbags.
For privacy reason I would not mention names of dealers. Lets say I approached dealer A. I walked to the showroom (pretty small one) and was ushered in by receptionist. An Sales person was assigned and I enquired about Tigor AMT. He explained me features and specification (seemed he had mugged up). I asked about discounts and offers. He gave some basic offers and said he would check with his senior and let me know. After that I asked for TD. He said the Tigor AMT test drive car was not available and instead offered me Tiago AMT drive. I took a quick spin and left of the day.
I was not satisfied with offers from dealer A and was looking for something more. The onroad price for Tigor XZA in Bangalore is around 799000. I called up Tata Motors helpline to check the offers again. Then they directed me to dealer B. Immediately I got a call from dealer B. It was on a Saturday morning. I expained my requirement and asked for a TD and price details. They had TD car ready and on request they agreed to come to my home for giving TD. Within couple of hours the TD car with Sales Person arrived and I did a detailed TD and also checked in my apartment parking lot. I was impressed by the way the car behaved apecially in the sports mode and also manual mode.
Then we discussed pricing. These guys offered little more than Dealer A and free basic accessories. I was still undecided.
Next day was Sunday. I got a text message for May 2018 special offer from Tata Motors. I called up dealer B sales person immediately and he said he would check and call back. In 10 minutes he called back and confirmed the offer, but the catch was I have to book by next 24 hours and delivery should be in May only. I agreed. Next day morning I reached dealership booked the car with Rs 11000. There was already a March 2018 car in their stock in Berry Red colour but I denied that , and opted for Expresso Brown (family's choice). So they told it would take 2 weeks to procure from factory. I was ok with that. Incidentally, later I found that car was manufactured on the same date on which I booked it.
Parallely I applied for car loan to SBI via the dealer. It was really a breeze and submitted documents to them and it was approved in next two days. So the wait begun.
Exactly 10 days later I got a call that the car has arrived at the stockyard. That was quick I thought. So I wanted to do PDI , but they were little hesitant saying the yard is 40 km away. I was hell bent that I will do PDI before registration and said I would go by my own car. So I reached there next day morning along with the sales guy and did proper check as per TAI
PDI list. Some pictures during PDI as below.
Once I was satisfied, I gave go ahead to bank to release loan payment and also did the balance payment from my side. The registration I instructed them to do on a specific day so my choice number would turn up. You can check that in KA RTO website .
Next was accessories and delivery. I had decided to install body side beading/ rub rails and bumper corner protectors from Tata only as they look good and have OEM
logo as well. Rest things I felt overpriced and did not opt for. Basic free accessories included Floor Mats, Mud guards, Idol and Perfume. Later found that the Floor Mats were good quality noodle mats OEM
