Suggestions for a Serial Switcher
Need your inputs on the following dilemma
I am a guy who loves to change cars after 2-2.5 years. I have gained sufficient expertise in buying pre-worshipped cars. I no longer have to get the car verified by the FNG. I have bought the following cars in the pre-owned mode
I moved to Bangalore in 2014. When I moved from Mumbai, I had my Civic and my Zen. I decided to sell both cars and buy a used car in Bangalore which both of Us (me and my wife) could drive. The primary reason was the pressure from Bangalore Cops to pay local taxes which was coming out to be fairly high for the Civic. In addition, had only one parking in Bangalore.
So I bought the Swift (which was a major downgrade from the Civic), but wait! The Swift I bought was no ordinary Swift. It had the following mods
This car is a hoot to drive and will bring a smile to anyone's face after a highway round.
Now coming to the point. My wife is not driving a lot and the car is used by me almost 99% of the time. I really miss my Civic and the urge (Keeda) to change the car has been biting me for sometime. I am all over the place in my decision to change my car. My thoughts keep shuttling between the following cars
I have been wanting to start some offroading hence a few SUVs in the mix above. My needs are not very specific. I drive the car over the weekends mostly with monthly Running less than 300 kms. I am a complete heart guys when it comes to cars. I like to own cars which will make me smile everyday seeing the car in my Garage (though I dont drive it everyday).

Re: Suggestions for a Serial Switcher
This urge is certainly a curse if you are on a tight budget or if we have more than one ride already with us, even I have had the urge to swap my bikes often and found it to be not worth it. Last bike I bought was a KTM Duke 200(used), I've to decide that I will hold on the KTM until something major goes wrong (like engine issue), till then have decided to never consider anything else.
If you have the money, go for the Fortuner and enjoy the peace of mind while chasing your heart at the same time, else you can just mod the swift like no one else and have something unique.
P.S: Do we have any threads dedicated to this interesting topic of itch to upgrade?
