      Red face Booked New Alto 800

      Hello Gearheads,
      After lot of suggestions, discussions and arguments, today my dad booked Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 Lxi for themselves ( I might steal it in couple of months ).
      Excited.

      OTR: 3,69,600 Tanuku, AP.
      No discounts, no freebies (as of now). Will try to push atleast for the left ORVM.
      Color: Granite Grey
      Delivery date: 24th Oct. - On the auspicious day of Dussehra.


      I just learnt driving, so will be taking the delivery and park it in the home
      More pics, buying experience and initial ownership report to come in few days.

      This is the first car for the family, what should I be specifically looking into during the delivery process?

      Thanks Anand. I'm still in the driving lessons. Not confident to take a test drive on a demo car
      My dad has only one line to say. 'A maruti is a maruti. And my first car has to be it'. So a test drive isn't required as we weren't left it any more choices other than k10, Estilo or Wagon R.

      I went to a showroom today, checked the colors, sat in the car and to my surprise it's spacious and the interiors didn't feel cheap!

      Congrats on your first car its always a special experience...

      Ask the showroom guys to explain what all the switches on the dashboard mean, how to open bonnet and petrol tank cover and so on...my santro was the first car ever (in the family also) so i was not aware of what is where...

      Ask them to pull the car out in the open and do a visual inspection of the outside that there are no major scratches or dents. Open and close the window glass to check they work fine, sit inside and check the light inside works, check the headlights by switching on / off that the bulbs are working fine or not...just a normal inspection

      Check the papers that are given, check the name spellings are correct in all documents, service booklet included or not, tire changing kit like spanner etc, check all the warranty documents applicable for battery etc are included and name is correct and so on...

      You can do the above once you reached home also, no hurry

      Then take your new baby home, do a puja and get set to drive

      Anand267 & KRRaj : Yes, it's the new one recently launched. Would be one of the very few ones running around in the town
