    Great choice Vel.

    As for the deal being offered by the dealer, i would certainly look at more cash discount than being currently offered. Negotiate on that aspect. Even though the car isn't that old, but it will carry the 2012 tag and that warrants depreciation. Also, what accessories are being offered for 4000?

    And do ask around other dealers for what sort of deals they are giving on 2013 cars or 2012 ones if they have them in stock. Where are you located by the way.

    Cheers.

    Hi vaisakhdutt,

    On road price is 7.38 ONLY, is it year 2012 manufactured vehicle?

    Ask for free mats, teflon coating, car cover and diesel coupon worth Rs 2000/-(as I have seen in this forum one of TFI member got this), you might get some these. It is worth paying 7.38L to dealer, you might have observed big difference in cost-wise from my quotation.

    Drop a personal message to me with your phone number, want to discuss with you regarding quotation that you are getting.

    Regards,
    tfiat.

    vaisakhdutt,

    Yes, certainly worth go and grab the machine that too it is 2013 manufactured. Check for door sill plates and diesel coupon as well. Excluding extended warranty, so you are planning to pay for that from your pocket? How much it is?

    I think you can also enquire with Fiat exclusive show room (Hyson Motors) opened at Cochin. As of now you are checking with Kulathunkal Motors under Tata, better to check with Hyson. You can compare both the quotation and choose the best one with more offers.

    Regards,
    tfiat.

    tfiat, you may need to bargain more. 7.65 for 2012 car in TN looks high to me. From the quote, I am not seeing any significant discount for the 2012 model. What they have quoted is the usual offer provided by Fiat through out the year. You should be able to get the same offer for 2013 vehicle too from Mar'2013. Anything more than 7.35 OTR in TN is high for a 2012 manufactured car.
