2.5 lacs.
it being 2 door,it is going to be difficult to find buyers.
so why not grab the chance and start with as low as u can.start from 2.5lacs.

the gold esteem was an impulse buy by my father.and he payed a lot for it,since we have an offer still standing for it,i am looking around for better cars in a similar budget of around 2.5lacs+-

i think 2.6 lakhs is the maximum u must pay as the run is a lot for 1 year and in due 10k kms u have to be changing the tyres also and may be some other spare parts . the car was being given at an discount bcoz they couldnt find buyers and was sold at 4.3 lakhs on road bombay .

dude ...
for the same price why not look around for a palio 1.6 GTX, siena 1.6....
in bombay ive only seen 3-4 of these cars that too only 1 steel ....
cmon look hard and u can get an ikon 2001 model , corsa royale 01 - 02 ....
there are better cars for the same price ....
the zens a good impulse buy but it will be inconvinient in the long run ..
trust us ...
we know are work

Well Aadix I dont think that is exactly true, as i was shopping for a car around that point in time (Mid to end 2003) I remember seeing a few ads in DC and other newspapers where Acer was offering Free Insurance + Lifetax + some goodies ( that would make the cost close to 4 lp on road) for the carbon and steel version of the zen

I guess 3.3 for a car with 30K on the odo is a bit steep and I think the right price is around 2.6 to 2.8 for the 2 door

Do let us know what ever happens!!

For 3.3 I think you can easily get a pre face lifted version of the Old Honda City !! or for around 3 you can easily get a palio 1.6 GTX ( if you can spot one)

I say try to get the Carbon cheap, if not possible get another Zen for a lot cheaper and get it up a excellent condition. The Zen is a much more sensible proposition than high-mileage C-segemtn cars because it's running costs are much lower and it's mileage is better.
