Hi Chevy Spark Owners,

Let us get together at Sparky's Lounge, share info and discuss about our sparky. Every spark owner in TAI are invited.

Let me start.

I have bought SPARK LPG LS model on October 19th [Incidentally I bought my bike, CT 100 on the same day in 2004 ]. It is 2010 model I got in 2011 [I think it was a mistake] after considering additional 15k Discount.

My car costs 3.8L. I paid 90k as Down payment, Insurance and TAX. 2.9L I obtained loan from Mahindra and Mahindra Finances. Iam paying Rs. 8095 as EMI and it is for 48 months.

It comes with, Front power windows, AC, Power stearing, Day and light rear view mirror, Internally adjustable OVRM on both sides

I have got Mat and Wheel cap with the car for free. and also with 5 Ltr Petrol.

I got the following accesories
  • Xenos DVD HU
  • Oval Pioneer Speakers at rear
  • Round Speakers [non branded] in front
  • Reverse Camera
  • DVD roof top screen
  • White LED for cabin light.
  • Parcel Trey.
  • Antenna
  • God idol

The following items I wanted to do it.
  • Rear Power Windows
  • LED Lighting for rear boot space
  • Rear Speakers re-arrangement [you will know later when you go thru the below mentioned thread]
  • puddle lamp/Red lamp in all four doors out of which puddle lamp will be useful for the passengers getting down from car and Red lamp will be usefull for other drivers pass thru to know that the somethign is there, so that I can save my door[;)]
  • LED bulbs for Front parking light, reversing light and front/back indicators
  • Fog Lamp
  • Another 3.5 LCD screen since reverse camera as of now is connected to roof top LCD screen which is little bit difficult to use reverse camera.
  • After market Seat Belt warning [at least for driver]
  • Temperature Monitor

Some of the links you can go thru

It’s a better idea to make use of appropriate forum sections to discuss specific topics on a car rather than in one general thread for the benefit of readers. Hence, this thread has been moved and renamed. Thanks for understanding and cooperation.

Drive Safe,

Got a quote from dealership. Approx 1800 including fitting.
Man that is great. Pls share the product name, manufacturer name. so that I can check whether the product is available in chennai.

That is really good price man. Once I asked for painting the OSRVM with body color for that itself they asked for Rs.2500 [including door handles] I think instead of that I can go for this.

Have to get it painted
Oops. I don't understand this part. Does that mean it would cost be Rs.1800 + painting charges. if yes pls let me know what would be the painting cost.

BTW, what city you are in [just for information] if you don't want to disclose no problem.
