  1. LM@O Dude Octy is No Bentley! Where are you living?
  2. Well, I dont know why so many people rave about Resale values of their vehicles. Got to pick the vehicle on the basis of performance and just enjoy your time with it. If I were choose between an Octi and Optra, Optra would be my choice as it beats the former hands down in almost all the departments. So I would worry less about resales and enjoy the performance of Optra rather than enjoying the fantasies of Octi resales values.
  3. Wow! I thought Endeavour was no match for Fortuner!
  4. I have repoted to TATA on multiple occasions but of no avail. The thing is TATA motors is sitting pretty as there's no real competition in it's respective category (say Safari and Indica). Although Toyota Innova has really affected Safari's sales, I'm waiting a one particular Diesel SUV (maybe Fortuner) priced at 13 lacs to come along and TATA Safari will be history. Maybe in the coming time we can see some diesel hatchbacks in the price range of 4-5 lacs to kick TATA Motors A$$. Fierce competition in the coming time will force TATA Auto to revolutionize it's quality and after sales service, else they're off.
  5. What do you think? Americans love Germans?
  6. Sometimes, they are practical and sometimes they are out of their minds, just like British Weather!
  7. British Customers Satisfaction Survey- LOL!
  8. Diesel Accord will be way costlier than Petrol one.
  9. Magnum TCDi owns Skoda Octavia TDi Seriously....
  10. The MOST comfortable car out there. Even more comfortable than Sonata CRDI. Potholes and uneven roads will not bother you anymore. Acceleration is great and it's hard to believe that it's a diesel car. Although I didn't it's interiors but I really think at 10 lacs, this is the BEST overall car money can buy. It's way better than Skoda Octavia TDI. The most catchy point: Sheer Comfort and Diesel Power (Acceleration) Most hated point: Lack of accessories and plain interiors. Having said that I'm very excited about GM's Diesel technology and now, I'm waiting for Chevrolet CAPTIVA which is due next January. It'll be certainly better than Optra when it comes to comfort, power and equipment.
  11. Yep. After driving Optra Magnum, it was hard to realise that it was powered by a Diesel Engine. Smooth, Powerful and well refined to say the least.
  12. Apart from economy (Diesel is much cheaper then Petrol) is there anything else (a valid point) why Diesel Engine should be preferred over Petrol counterpart? In India the mindset is such that if it's diesel, it wins otherwise car manufacturers don't stand a chance! Honda is an exception though.
  13. I hate TATA after sales service. I have had horrible experiences with them and I have tried various TATA Authorized Service Stations.
  14. The thing is that there's NO SUV available at 11.5 lacs that can match feature of New TATA Safari. It's fully loaded at 11.5 and then it got some serious positive ratings from both AC and Overdrive (barring low quality interiors)
  15. Does TATA has the same interiors for Export Model Safari and Domestic Safari?
  16. High Ground Clearence with excellent suspension - Which car meets the criteria?
  17. I would have gone for Grand Vitara if there were any good discounts
  18. Insane Customs Duties. They're just ridiculous. Looks like I would have to move abroad to enjoy luxury Sportscars and SUV's!
  19. Yup. I have heard great things about Toyota Fortuner. It was about to get launched in India but for some reason Toyota pulled it back, I don't know why? Hell, top end version of it would have given X-Trail a serious run for it's survival!
