A short story:
Friend of mine was working in Coimbatore and was looking for a replacement for his 13-year-old Zen, which started showing troubles. Last year he bought i10 Auto for his dad and could afford only an entry-level or second hand car. So decided to TD a Nano and came to know 2012 Nano is gonna be launched and straight away booked one. I believe this is the first Nano featured in TAI
He was impressed with the black interiors of the CX (middle variant) than the beige of the LX. Chose flashy green because he found Papaya Orange too flashy that we will make fun of him
. Papaya Orange was too too cute. It looked like a toy car.
His requirements were cheap to run and maintain, seating position higher than his Zen, and decent ground clearance.
Car was delivered within 15 days of booking. On-road price was 1.8L. Full cash payment.
Freebies included floor mats, mud flaps, and a perfume.
Dealer offered 90k for his Zen as exchange price, but condition of Zen is not worth for that and we were sure they won't pay the sum once we are into the game. His brother decided to keep the Zen as it's their first car.
Apart from the fixed hatch and unreachable fuel lid, Nano is every way better than M800 IMO
. It got a chiller in it. AC was too deadly
Mod plans: Garware tints. Hella 500FF (from his Zen). Pioneer non-USB HU and tweeter (also from his Zen) and JBL GTO948 in enclosure.
Meijo Green, available only on LX
Nano 2012 now available in all Candy colors
PS: The car is now with his brother and I have to wait till he comes home to get chance to drive the car. Will post more about the cutie then. More snaps>> More Snaps
