    Depends on how you wanto go.
    The altis A/T comes around 130,000 more then the gli A/T do consider that if you are planiing to spend a 100,000 then spend 130,000 more and once get altis A/T

    Other then that depends how u go

    Altis rims 24,k oem 60k
    Wooden kit 7k OEM 10.5k
    Fog lamps 6k and 9k
    Side skirts 5.5k
    Door protectors 3.5k
    Paint around 10k
    Altis like meter 25k
    Keyless entry steel mate atleast 2.5k
    Chrome door ruber 6k (as in altis)
    Gud quality deck as in altis 15k

    Esse 70-80. Hazar lagane se its bettr u get ur self factory fitted stuff
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Price comparison:

    Gli A/T= 1719000(Base price)+120,000(Insurance & Registration)
    Total= 1839000

    Altis A/T= 1849000(Base price)+130000(Insurance & Registration)
    Total= 1979000

    Price difference 1979000-1839000= 140,000

    On Altis I am paying 1.99 Million but still no seat covers and other stuff. If I buy Gli Auto I can buy everything that altis has plus push start button and good navigation system.

    Thank you for such detailed analysis, you are right but I can save on few things like fog lamps, meter, door rubber etc. I might give a second thought to your suggestion since only difference is 40k. I will visit showroom on Saturday, lets if I change my mind after seeing altis auto

    @Chinyoti, you are absolutely right. I believe in the same suggestion. Instead of testing after market add-ons to make your car look like Altis A/T; why not spend a little more amount and enjoy finished Altis A/T with genuine company fittings.

    Your money cant buy driver side air bag and fuel cut for 1.6 GLi...Cruise Control is bonus in Altis

    Yes truely said by other PWers, you can buy an Altis manual by adding just 40k more and by adding 140k you can get altis auto with cruise control. Where no addons are needed.

    Further some people recomend to wait for the new yeasr tp start as it is very near and the invoice and reg can be of 2012. I dont what if it matters or not but surely the documents remains latest for the year.

    Altis all the way, the aftermarket things do not last long and are a constant source of pain. Altis auto is top of line and has got everything. Seat covers, mats, push start button are not things which matter more. With Altis you would not need seat covers. It has got leather seats already.

    Why we have seat covers in the first place? The seat covers are said to keep the original seat clean but throughout the entire life of the car we keep we do not enjoy the original fabric/material/shape.coziness of original seats. If after years of use you remove seat covers, you may not get cleaner or new seats, but the wear and tear continues under the seat covers too, even most of the seat covers damage the original seat covers more.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
