I was thinking whether to sell off my Swift Vxi 2005 model done 10000 kms ( i understand i may lose around 60k) & purchase this OHC.

Just curious to check is there specific advantage that Swift has over OHC?
Wow..you seem to love the OHC a bit too much. Keep the swift buddy. It is brand new and will serve you longer than the OHC. Moreover the asking price for the 1.3 is a bit too much. The swift has a newer better engine.

Avoid it, plain & simple. A 1.3 OHC isn't something worth considering at any rate. I wouldn't exchange my car (bought new) for something that is a few years old to begin with. Add the fact that it is a 1.3, then the fact that the owner wants a ridiculous 4.2L for it; then factor in the bottom line - it isn't even in production any more.

Your answer should then be as clear as day. Heck, I'd argue that even an OHC VTEC isn't exactly a great buy - but then only because it is no longer manufactured.

Not at all. Dealers know what VTEC means. Just ask them to show you a Vtech for purchase, they will explain you about Vtec to substantiate the price they quote .

In Chennai market, price he quoted seems to a reasonable one for direct purchaser (4.5L). Iam sure he can find buyers for 4.25L. But also keep in mind that selling a second owned car is bit difficult. Best way is to go for ads in Hindu & advertising in car sites

I will give you an example. Wanted to sell off 2000 model Lancer petrol with annual tax registered in company name. Take into account that it has got annual tax & the buyer needs to spend around 30k for converting into LT since it is registered in Companys name.

Dealers here offered me 2L and only one guy stretched it upto 2.25 L. After 2 weeks I sold the car for 2.7 L to a direct buyer. If at all you decide the car to sell it for 4 laksh, don't sell it to dealer. Give it to direct buyer at the same cost with a condition you will fill the details in transfer form.
