Expected delivery month is May 2016????? That is a hell of time. Did you get the PBO in which delivery month is written May 2016, if not then surely your Toyota dealer is bluffing with you . Ask any other dealer about delivery month of 1.6 altis and hopefully you will get your car if not January 2016 then surely February 2016. Whenever you give the payorder to Toyota dealer, ask for PBO number . Do not delay in getting PBO number.
Yes Corolla Altis 1.6 is a wise decision over Gli A/T. For comparison of Gli A/T with Altis 1.6, some few lines are worth to read.
The Extra things you will get in Altis 1.6 over Gli A/T are
Altis 1.6 has alloys, nav ready infotainment system with back view camera, Hi Grade fabric seats as mentioned on indus website (Please see),Extra two color Super White and Bronze Mica if you want to opt that and above all dual VVTI 1598cc bigger Engine. you can get after market alloys, infotainment system in the price range of 90k (125k-90k= 35k) but you cant replace 1.3 engine to 1.6 engine in 35k.
Yes you can replace the front black grill with chrome strips but for chrome inside headlights either you need to paste the chrome strips over headlights or you need to open the headlights (both are not a good idea) or you have to change the whole headlights . I think black portion of strips in headlights are not looking bad at all infact it goes with other black part of headlights
Still if you wanna change then change whole headlights with OEM UAE headlights which came with projectors and leds, you will get chrome strips in it plus projectors and led with a massive grace. For reference showing you Vik_vik bhai's ride with projectors
