    not sure about the payment but you can definitely instruct them not to get the car registered unless you give a green signal after your pdi!!

    Yes, even in my buying experience the dealer gave the standard reply of "Car is not insured, no registration , so cannot be allowed to drive until you do the billing".

    So i just believed the dealer's PDI and drove the car home and aal was well. :)

    I did a very short drive during the PDI of my Linea inside the dealer's yard itself.

    it doesn't look like I will get the car by 2nd. The Sales guy gave me the usual stories- Car is in transit and none knows when exactly will it reach chennai. Now I Just hope that they will give it to me on 5th as promised.

    By the way- Will the tyre upgrade help the GC? What should I go with and how much will it cost me?
    AND, how do I enable Aux and USB in the emotion variant?

    If the car don't arrive by Monday, I doubt whether you can get it on 5th too.
    Do you really think that the tyre upgrade is required? GC may not be a problem once you get used to your car.

    I doubt there is still an option to enable the USB/AUX in the Emotion variant. Experts can comment on this.
  8. congrats on your new ride buddy... and chill dude... u will not regret your decision...

    I completely agree with @shams on this. everybody in my family were against it, especially my uncle; but as soon as he took it for a ride on the highway, his thinking changed completely and looked at the car in a very different manner... So relax, have fun with the car....
    Wish you great miles ahead...

    Did the PDI yesterday. It was all good except a few problems..A couple of plastic plates were coming off from under the steering near the knee.Roof beading was coming off a little bit..told him to fix all that..
    a few things- How do I test whether the lighter works..
    Does the rear wiper throw water?

    Getting the delivery on Saturday ..will need to check these..
    I was so happy to see MY CAR:)
