This was not the ANHC, it was the NHC. ANHC launched later that year. I think the VTEC Plus came with Airbags and ABS and it was approx 10 lakhs OTR back then

Yes you are right, my car was the ZX model. Vtec Plus came with Airbags, ABS, Fog lamps, alloy wheels etc as a response to the SX4 which was doing well at that time.

I was quoted Rs 6.75 lakhs by a local dealer for the car in July 2010, Rs 5.85 in March 2011 by the same dealer, and Rs 5.5 by Toyota UTrust in May 2011. The earlier times, i could not sell the car since it was still under my company lease.

I lost close to Rs 50k due to the fact that i could not sell it in March. The Polo price went up by some Rs 10k and i lost Rs 35k on the City thanks to a Rs5/- hike in petrol prices. I am just thankful that i did not delay the sale further, since the new Rs66k drop in City prices would have meant that my Vtec Plus would be quoted Rs 5 lakhs or so.

Well i think its possible. Someone(i can nominate myself for now) can upload all the info so far to a google docs file. And everytime someone adds more info to the thread they can update the same in the google docs file as well

I second AirWind's suggestion. This should be compiled somewhere! radiokidb: i think if you are willing to do so, it is very welcome gesture. But first finalize the structure so that it will be easier to search and update/append.

This thread is really helpful for judging the depreciation and second hand market characteristics.
