  1. New Skoda Octavia to be shown at Moscow Motor Show

    Well actually laura is the new generation octavia for the rest of the world. Don't really think a fabia sedan is good replacement for octy. Think its best not to call it octavia then
  2. The Gadgets and Gizmos thread!

    @ Bornfree But are you getting any warranty/guarantee on the phone at that price? @ asethi I use a curve myself, but mine is on contract so have no idea how much it costs otherwise. Just saw an AD in the newspaper and there is a very high chance that the price advertised is not really what they sell it for.
  3. Retro Amby coming

    Time for a retro contessa as well, Indias' very own muscle car. What say?
  4. The Gadgets and Gizmos thread!

    Saw some ads of blackberry 8520 curve for 17k. Seems like a good buy, Otherwise check HTC. Was just checking the iphone prices myself 3GS is around 40k from voda but I think would be better you bought from some other apple dealer like maple, same price and the phone is not locked to 1 network. iphone 4G is expected in december if you want to wait and save up cause its expected to be quite pricey .
  5. My First Car

    under 6L sedan other than you mentioned is indigo. Not suggesting it but letting you know of the choice. The latest entry into the segment is VW vento which starts at 6.99 ex showroom delhi, which again i think would be more expensive in chennai. SX4 also starting at 6.9 ex delhi has major discounts going on all over india. Out of the hatchbacks would suggest the polo. You can also consider a pre owned car and can get your self something like a civic/corolla.

  7. VW Golf Spy Pics

    Oh yes the new jetta, just saw it in todays TOI. Looked somewhat like the vento or did the guyz at the newspaper mix the two up?
  8. Civic 2012 Revealed

    Personally prefer the sedan, specially type R in it. New Hatchback has gone too futuristic. Guess I am still old skool guy, not saying the sedan one looks old skool or something. But has something to it.
  9. Audi Q5 now assembled in india

    Q5 is such a competitive car. c'mon Audi think numbers bring down the price to something reasonable. It is anyway betting the x3(BMW? or whatever that is), a bit of price reduction and it would even take customers of 3 series and c class, may be its own a4 as well. As I think our pot holes road and flooded street require it .
  10. LR Freelander(@23.5L) to be pitted against CRV

    There is also another variant, a cheaper one which they have not got it to india yet. The basic freelander with MT. And the car being made here would be a treat. But since Tata has launched the model in india as car starting from 33-34L it is unlikely that even if it is produced here they will pass on the full or even any benefit to the consumer. Though it might be the bring the basic model in so that the car starting price goes down. Something similar to laura ambiente?
  11. Fiat 500

    fiat 500 I guess is the only car which falls in all price brackets. It starts of from some GBP 9,465 which is 200 pounds cheaper than the basic polo and goes up to a whooping GBP 26,900 which is more expensive than a Audi A6! Driven by a lot of celebs as a sign that they are down to earth people. But I guess that image doesn't really count for the indian market, now does it. As I was told by the Tata dealer (he was kind of a weird folk) the new 500 BSIV is going to cost some 22 lacs+ on road mumbai. He did print this out in a proper price list format to give it to me (thought it made it in front of me in MS word). But the way things seem 500 prices are going up and this model is no where close to the top end variant.
  12. 2012 Fiat Palio

    A palio facelift with MJD great. Hopefully they still price it right. Thats all they need and it going to sell like hot cakes .
  13. Civic 2012 Revealed

    Don't you think the back is a bit to small for a civic sedan? Indian civic is supposed be a proper big sedan. So whats with the hatchback crossover? Or can it be the new civic hatchback?
  14. VW Lupo( UP ) small car coming to India

    @325i a car below polo? VW planning to bring Fox to india?
  15. Palio MJD SDX @ down to earth price

    @bluesapphire When I last checked I was by tata corporate office that it has sold 17 fiat 500 in maharashtra and around, that to very proudly as that is the maximum number of fiat 500 sold by a single dealer. Heard quite a few people booked palio MJD. guess if the new palio doesn't carry earlier mechanical break downs owners use to complain about, it is true VFM. Also read in the paper Fabia basic model starts at 4.48 or something ex-showroom.
