      Hi sparkls. Well actually there were a couple of reasons for booking the previous version.
      1. The SA told that the Led DRL and headlamps might not be introduced at the moment. And the other additions were not that important.
      2. I got a huge discount on the pre facelift model which made the deal even sweeter.

      Thanks bro. The TD was fantastic. Tried every mode. I feel the D mode is more than sufficient for most of the occasions.

      The loan has been sanctioned and will be taking the delivery probably on Wednesday.

      Any idea which mats to get for the car.

      Yes i drove it today for 40 KM ( instead of weekend ) and opened this thread to update you

      So my experience was good too - few things i noticed

      a. I did not feel any issue while car was going to D3/D2
      b. Brakes - somehow i found them better than my Rapid
      c. Suspension -little on softer side compared to Rapid
      d. it has sports mode

      I think looking at other Auto option in segment , you definately took right decision.

      Even I found the brakes a bit better than the Rapid. Although did not notice the difference in suspension.

      The Sports mode provides good engine braking when used in city driving conditions but the engine becomes a bit noisy. U don't notice but the triple digits are reached pretty quickly in the S mode.

      First of all congrats on ur new vehicle. Sir have you opted for the extended warranty? If so is the rate similar the post that I have posted before or has it increased?? What is the OTR price pls mention about the discounts you have got. BTW pls decode the VIN for to make sure the vehicle not too old.
