      Exclamation Alto LXi

      I recently purchased an alto LXi for the use of my wife .I would like to share few points regarding the same.
      Maruti is giving 30000 rs dicount on both regular alto and k10 series alto.
      regular alto comes in 2 trim levels one with no frills,other one with luxuries like power steering and A/C
      the side mirror is flap type(yes ,only on right side) .So I requested for it to be changed to old zen style mirrors(ofcource it only looks good,no option to control from inside) at cost of 1250rs(not body coloured,same will make it costlier by 1000 rs)
      NO wheel cap,even if you wish to buy NO MARUTI GENUINE stuff avilable,as maruti recently changed disc patternWent for third party wheel caps at a cost of 600 bucks
      No body coloured bumbers,so to make it slightly better looking,I requested it to be painted at a cost of 2000 rs.

      No head rest....

      AND MOST SHOCKING OMISSION.........NO CHILD SAFTY LOCK FOR REAR doorscheap move from maruti,shows how much they are concerned about passenger (poor KIDS) safty, even dealer where unaware,i just called maruti toll free,confirmed,YES maruti thinks its a luxury
      nothing to write about driving comfort or performance,its just a cabin with 4 wheels,intend to take you from point A to point B
      Maruti is planning to phase out this model in 2013

      If anyone here is planning to buy one ,go for ALTO K10,its of much better value,better engine,better milage
      attaching two pictures,first one shows doors with no child lock

      A good choice for a second-less-used car. It's a no nonsense value product.
      My 2007 Alto LXi has child locks and head rests.
      No wheel caps available at Dealer? Are you sure it wasn't just the dealer's shortcoming?

      Really shame on Maruti to cut this. How much will it cost for Maruti for this child lock which is soooo... important?

      Sure as maruti changed wheel rim design ,its a bit bulging out,may be they bring out new ones,but seems unlikely as they plan to phase out this model ,hence heavy discount

      Also NO KEYHOLE on left front door,so every time you have to come to right front door to enter.May I should fit keyless entry,since original idea was to have lowcost 2nd car,I didnt went for it on first place.

      congrats on the new car.
      maruti has done a lot of cost cutting on the BS4 version of the alto which includes the integrated hear-rests in the front and no key-hole on the front LHS door. but child lock is present i guess. what is second pic that you've posted?? is it not the child lock??

      edit: are those zen mirrors MGA???
      edit2: where did you get those mud flaps??
