Money is very important to all of us, to be true, how rich the person maybe he will definitely look for the things to save at least a penny if he is able do it without losing anything from his personal side. Though whatever it maybe, but when it comes to cases of car, we know how the people in outer world tends to snip off their trick to swipe big amounts from your bank accounts, even car companies are not settled for the exception. Things start from the moment when you purchase the car, which moreover lures in the form of ‘accessories’ and such. Those are the only things where one can do his best for the extracts; otherwise the automobile companies give out their products all for a standard price, no fluctuation in the particular region. Talking about present scenario, dealers try to flung the prices of cars towards down the line, via balancing similar type of moves in accessories; after all he pitches in all the effort to increase conversion rates in his showroom. Mentioned this time are the points for saving money while accessorizing your car after the purchase. First thing first, this articles starts from your initial affair with the car, means from the moment when you were admiring them standing in front of showroom’s glasses for so long.
Ask yourself what you exactly want in a car:
The time when one enters the car showroom he starts drooling over the top end version of his desired model plate but the truth is, both lower and higher end are same in technical specifications, yet the place where they differ is interiors and the badging on outer crisps. Nothing much else to do with those extra shots of money asked in the name of “top-end variant”. We suggest you to go for the one-or-two trims lower than the trim which you can afford, because the saved money can get you good amount of additional attachment from outer accessory shops. It is but obvious that the showroom personnel will ask you for the basic things like gear lock and others from his in-house store only, which will sound you genuine but we suggest, just drive your car straight to the accessory shop from showroom, to save some of the bucks in your pocket for party that night and also to have the peace of mind just at the first drive of newbie without failing.
After heaving a sigh of relief from the safe and sound measures, further you will aspire to breathe in the aura of added comfort and luxury in it, after all that’s what most of us demand from our car at every time. Firstly, decide that how much you want to spend on the car after purchasing it, and very importantly do you “really need” those highly sorted additional fitments in daily usage. If the answer is yes then make a list of things which you need very strongly and also write down the budget on the top of it so that you won’t exceed the budgeted line while drawing precision. Things can get easy when you team them differently, ask questions like, a single din CD player is enough rather instead of going with 2 din, and also, does your ride is restricted to limited routes only or you really need the satellite navigation system on dashboard, whilst of many more similar instances to be looked upon. Nowadays, most of carry tabs us (tablets) in our hands wherever we go, which we think will minus the need of navigation system at a near future.
Still not clear with the additional amount of fuss, let’s give in an example. If the VXi model costs for Rs 4.99 lakh, whereas the ZXi variant brings in the tag of Rs. 5.25 lakh, then one can save a bunch of Rs. 26,000 straight forwardly from the equation, which he can used for additional buyouts from outside, that was meant to be costing his pocket more than the double if he would gone have with decision of standard/official fitment.
However, if still the possessive factor is really pinching you hard from inside for settling down with the company’s standard modules, as you will not derive the benefits such as ABS and airbags from outside, we suggest you to get your peace of mind from there itself. We know that those will things are not be available in the outer fraternity but we found out that there is no rule on the earth that mandates this type of fitments in a car, hope so you got it.
Don’t overdo it:
The life of a car is limited to certain years; one day it has to be sold off, except if the metal that you had in your garage is a classic. But most of us don’t fall in that prestigious category; hence leaving those criteria apart, we suggest you, don’t go for spending-spree on additional fitments because, while selling those vouches, one may not be able to get you even half of the costing. In our country a second hand buyer, most probably looks in for the year of manufacture and engine specifications, which he believes, will do even with the down-to-earth interiors, but just needed everything to be in working condition at the time of purchase. And even if it happens that any one of the rarest choosers land in the call of your heavily loaded bug, then still he will not pay you the 50% of invested amount. Talking with a pre-owned dealer we came to know, a pre-owned buyer tends to pay only 25-30% of the car’s added value due to the reason of taking the stride with his personalized modifications, like nowadays everyone wants to leave their own unique yet symbolic aura inside their cabin.
We have met a number of used car dealers in city and have listed out what they have to say on this issue, and very hopefully they also echoed the same what we have mentioned in above stanzas. Some even said, hatchbacks and mid-sizers can derive a bit up-nothced quotations, but looking in the case of luxury metals it is hard to ask something additional for those extra fitments, because people had a cool taste for small bugs rather than the bigger bonks, and both segments are totally different from each other in most of the terms.
We hope these notifications will help you to take right step in the accessorizing decision, as this article had been pinned with finest yet first hand information underneath, which is true on the account of present market scenario.
