  1. Well toyota engines are good till about 1lakh Kms. So 60-70k isnt a big deal.

    Do not buy a 2007 model.Try to stay way from Linea due to Fiat's bad reputation when it comes to after sales service.You can also get the new Skoda Octavia that is due sometime next year. Also it will help if you can tell us as to how much discount you are being offered and what is your budget.
  3. Well I don't really care if it's diesel or petrol.But even if we take the diesel C class which outs 170bhp,it is still a more powerful engine than A4. If you check the JDpower reports then you will see how low VW/Skoda rank. So Audi cars are not made or shared with VW cars right ?If that's so then I am bending towards the A4. What sucks is that the new C has no auto folding mirrors.I was told by the dealer that these auto mirrors were omitted because whenever a biker would hit them the motor would blow off and the mirrors would need to be replaced at a cost of Rs 60,000.Also the C has limited electric control in front 2 seats. This is so annoying.....
  4. Hi all, I am looking to buy a car by March 2009 and have been doing some research.I am considering between the A4 2.0 Diesel 134bhp and C200 petrol 184bhp. I have sat in both cars but not test driven them yet. The interiors of the A4 are amazing.I felt a little disappointed with the interior leather quality of the Mercedes though. Now my problem is that Audi is 3lakhs more expensive and the VW ownership does not help either as we all know that Skoda and VW have pretty crap build quality and customer satisfaction ratings. So does any of the sub par manufacturing parts and process find their way to the Audi brand or is Audi isolated from VW/Skoda?(PS: I know VW owns Lambo too) Another downside to A4 is that next gen Skoda Laura ,Superb have similar interior button layout to it. So what should I think of Audi's associatoin to VW? Thanks
  5. Wow. Now you guys think its worth getting this over the BMW 3 series or C class? As this car would prolly whoopp the butts of all the current 3's and 5;s in india(performance wise).So what say?
  6. Wait for the new Toyota Corolla. Will probably be out by summer. Cheers
  7. Nice pictures . Great to know we will be getting regular updates on the forums. Is Ferrari going to manufacture in India or just sell CBU's? The paint job definitely does not yet Ferrari, rather it feels like Wah Taj(ewwww) But good to see India hopefully getting more importance with high end car manufacturers.
  8. Well priya if you can buy the corolla , nothing better. Also why not try a used Palio if you want performance ?? I know service and dealers suck but heck for the performance you get nothing's better. Well gratz for getting to buy a car and keep us updated cheers. PS: my friend has a corsa which is about 6years old and it works well even today except for ocassional hose pipe bursts. Cheers
  9. Test drive both c and 3 and see which you like more personally. Nothing else what we debate here is going to do for you any further.You have narrowed the cars and now just Test them out . Cheers
  10. In a car review magazine, (I think January issue) they compared the merc diesel and the 320d and found that the C was .5secs faster than the 320d. Also remember that ride quality in C class is way better than 3series due to 3 using run flats and cost of changing a damaged run flat is about Rs 22,000/tyre C class has gone cheap in India and are not offering eletronically retractable rear mirrors and seats are only partially powered. Also this years BMW 3 series have been upgraded. The new 320i now has Sunroof/idrive standard and so is the case with 320d'. So people who bought 320i/d's in 2007 got royally ripped offfffff lol Hope this helps
  11. Amen. And also get better engine specs at the current prices.
  12. New A4 out by May as i was told. Alfa romeo out during second half of the year. Old A4's are apprently being sold at a great discount as they are trying to get rid of the old models. I would recommend waitning for a few months or maybe even next year, as you will definitely get a better choice of low end luxury cars like cadillac/hummer etc etc So enjoy making your decision hehe
  13. The new C class for sure. 1 for the quality of service. 2 for the better ride quality and interiors as compared to the low end 320i 3rd reason because 3 series is in mide life and is going to get a partial makeover this year. I have also been breaking my head over which car to buy and a just waiting for the new audi A4 to make my decision. Boxter is also a good option at 54lakhs on road if you want a true performer and i might just get the boxter next year if i aint satisfied with the C/3/A4. Cheers
  14. Waitttttt Dont buy the Civic. If you can wait till August get the new Corolla its apparently Loaded and from personal experience my Toyota has been extremely reliable and the ground clearance is amazing as compared to the Civic. So I would say wait
