I live near the Pepsi plant. There is a DPC motors on that highway as well as one in Porvorim. Which one did you visit?
I visited the one near so called Highway.
While coming from Ponda via Pepsi plant, & then left.
The roads are non existent.
DPC came towards right.

That is really very well written purchase experience, Peter. Congratulations! You have made a good decision to go with the Kappa2 Sportz. From what you have described, it appears that the showroom staff was courteous but lacked the basic customer treatment. Do share the pictures of those seat covers, and keep us updated. Wish you and your family miles of happy journey in the new travel companion. :smile:

Drive Safe,

Congrats Peter! It was an interesting read. The new facelift version looks a little more solid than the previous 'cute' version. Enjoy your new drive.

@Peter did you try to move steering with one finger in neutral gear?Was it easy or u had to put some effort?
The steering movement does require decent amount of effort when car is in neutral. That is a regular behavior of EPS, so no need of worry Alok.

The steering movement will be comparitively harder while the car is standstill. On the other hand while on move, the steering will feel a bit lighter. This is pretty normal and not a matter of worry[:)]. In similar manner, even at higher speeds the nature gets different(In your case, it feels more light).

what is my case and what are the other cases?
I felt the steering of the new i10 pretty light at high speeds while if i compare this with some other car it may not be the same. The swift's steering felt some what heavier at those speeds.

Are you looking for 185/60 R14. If yes, my suggestion is the P7 or the ES100

Edit: Just saw your previous posts that you're indeed looking for 185/60 R14

Update:
Got the Fog Lamps, Seat Covers and Scuff Plates fitted today. Reached the workshop at 1030. There was a problem with the central locking which was immediately rectified. I was told the fog lamps have not yet arrived and they had no idea when they were arriving. I said that I was not willing to keep coming again and again for this stuff. They them went to the stores and checked their computer after I insisted. It was in stock. They physically verified and it was there. I insisted they fit it immediately as I came to know another customer also wanted it and there was only one in stock. I decided to wait as the job was expected to be completed at 1 PM. However since it was the first time they were installing the new model fogs it took much longer and after a lot of pushing I finally got the car at 4:30 PM. When I checked, the scuff plates were not done. The car was taken in again and the job was done.
