      New Member in my family: Ertiga VDi 2012

      I had booked the Ertiga the first day it was open for booking, it somehow suited our life perfectly, not too difficult to park, nor too wide, would fit perfectly in our drive, frugal(diesel), and it can seat six adults, so it made the perfect family vehicle for me, second row cooling made the rear seats inhabitable, however when the deliveries started the color we opted for:maroon, was not in stock and we were told to wait(25-30weeks), however through some proper 'extended hand fingering', and we got our hands on our new dhanno yesterday evening
      first impressions:
      somehow the ertiga is both small and large at the same time, its only when you stand next to it, or sit in it do you reailse how big it really is, from the outside it looks like a stretched version of the wagon r, the engine is smoother than the swift, and even with six on board its not a slouch, it has turbo lag below 2k rpm, other than that the disappointing points were that it does not have remote boot lid release for the driver, and that it does not have steering mount controls, seats are supportive and nice, seating posture is great, and NVH characteristics are superb

      will keep y'all updated on how its doing from time to time

      Congrats blackhorn

      That was a speedy delivery and quick decision on buying it Guess this would be the first ownership report in the Indian automobile community.

      Please share us your initial impression and OTR cost....and this thread justifies some good pictures so please don't give some lame excuses

      thanks karthik, camchennai, it was dark when i clicked the pic, in my haste to share this with all you guys i forgot to clean the lens, you can see the ohc in the background, will click more pics, when the car is nicely washed and where the background is scenic

      the Ertiga VDi has cost me 9.01 on road, will keep updating impressions as i get more comfortable with it, right now my comfort level is of a scared guy on delhi roads with a puny horn to keep people from touching his new dhanno

      like i have said many a times, don't get jealous my lil strokie, you will still always be 'the one' , nobody can take your place, this was only some harmless flirting, pherrari babu swear nothing happened

      anubhav bhai is a born flirt, wahan bhi in the restaraunt, ke kept shamlessly flirting with a girl who was sitting behind us , and when i learnt he was married, he said 'ab lagta hai shaadi jaldi kar li'
