no. 1Lakh is too much for an 8 year old car that has run more than 1Lakh kms, even if it is in a dent free condition.

ensure its never had an accident leading to body work. the painted bonnet sounds suspicious to me.

If for some reason road tax/ registration charges are not so high in punjab, you can consider buying from Delhi. You might get more options here!

i agree delhi number car sell here cheap . but the problem is that there is problem with driving a delhi number car in punjab as cops are attracted towards delhi numbers . i don't know why but delhi cars are stopped at every checkpoint

No, I meant you buy the car and register it in Punjab with punjab number, provided that such registration fee is not too much.

Delhi cars or cars belonging to any other state are not allowed to be driven permanently in a state other than where such cars were registered, that is why they are stopped at check posts. [If you pay the local state's road tax then you can]
