As the wire alone didn't make it's way to the side beeding a thick steel wire was used to tie the wire and pull from the side beeding to route it towards it :)

Drawing wire from Alto dome is pretty easy, just remove the A-piller cladding.

and yes, the first accident happened :( one idiotic lorry driver coming on the opposite lane on a corner took the corner so close and it was a bus stop and i was waiting behind the bus, taking people and the rear end of the lorry same so close and hit my right side ORVM. This is the only thing caused luckkily and all other fucntion's of the mirror is working perfectly [:)].

The whole set of ORVM cost nearly 4K and is there any way to save it because, it's totally worthless changing ORVM for a minor crack [frustration][cry]

Did you do anything for the broken orvm ?

Any plans for mods on your car in the future??

I you can't get the color you want don't buy the car. It's not worth it. This is a big ticket item. I simply can't understand how one could compromise on the color of a car.

If you've a wife or a girl friend, ask her what color car she would love to have. Go by that. For all you know, you might get an option of more than one color.

The bottom line remains, don't compromise on big ticket items. And remember you're not buying an Audi, you're buying a consumer grade car. It's just that we're a bit crazy. I am also going thru a similar dilemma.

inian, as rafian said, don't compromise on the colour of car. Everytime you see/step into you car, you should feel satisfied instead of regret. If you have paid the advance and booked the car, the dealer should supply the car the one you've chosen at the time of booking. The filthy dealers might be too cozy when they were getting overwhelming demand for a particular car/automobile. We've already seen this kind of trend when the swift was released.

If you don't get the color you desired, you may see the other options like going other town for that car or you may also see the other cars too. But never compromise. :)

Contact customer care. It helped once there was shortage for Jazz.

As per Deville_56 said, contacting customer care would sometimes help :), even after waiting 4 long months and you are not eligible to get the desired colour ?[frustration] Sad
