Another accessory which I feel is a must install is the rear spoiler for the hatchbacks and MUV/SUVs. But then again its my personal opinion and not my dads who doesnt like ugly clamps which are used for the installation.

Yes. All the mentioned accessories can be anytime installed after the car is delivered.

Are these accessories from MGA? You can possibly find competitive prices after checking with a few local accessories stores around.

Just make sure to avoid getting anything installed from local stores that hampers with the car's electrical system. It could affect the car's warranty.

Alloy wheel for spare 4800
Personally I don't think it's required.

Map my India - 43000
Is it navigation system for Rs.43,000? Please share the model number.

Thanks Amit, I did enquire, I was told that just the navigation system costs me 50K including all the wiring and fitting charges and 55K if i want speakers with them.

Even i was flabbergasted when i saw the quote, but it never hit me to ask the model number, I shall contact the dealer and ask about it, is it best to keep a separate device for navigation and keep the existing music system and upgrade it later?

Stingray23, Check the mapmyindia website. Here is the link. In-Dash GPS Car Navigation and Entertainment Systems from MapmyIndia

U can buy online. I bought it for my Beat with the offer price. The sound quality is decent, the map, touchscreen is ok for the price.

One Important Accessory I always have and would also suggest others to have are TOOLS! Yes, have seen people with nice rich cars stranded on the highways looking out for help from other cars, say for a torch or a spanner or a tow rope many to name.
Many people out think that their car is highly sophisticated and will never break down, atleast a majority of them think and that is wrong.
A few tools / accessories which I consider a must is :

* A good Compact bright Torch.
* A good capacity tow rope, It can atleast help a family stranded on the highway.
* A swiss knife
* A basic tool kit, tubeless puncture kit, car air pressure pump, pressure gauge.
* Latex can hold hose leaks atleast fuel line leaks, so probably a couple of condom packs (This may look offensive but its the fact that it helped me once with a fuel pipe leak on my old MPFI Maruti 800)
* Car Chargers
* Umbrellas, Bags, Plastic bags (specially for passengers who vomit on ghat sections, You dont need to worry about the window weather strip and doors getting spoilt)
* Defogging spray if your car doesnt have a rear defogger.
* Microfiber cloth, Josapu duster
* Lastly on a long drive its better to keep a pack of biscuits and a bottle of water.

Suggest me a good and reliable shop for parking sensors and seat covers in delhi also.
Thanks in advance
I think you can check out the Palika Bhavan Car market. I happened to visit there with one of my dear friend Rana last year. He got the seat cover for his VW Polo. Here are some pics:
