Are they test drivce vehicles or used by their employees? In Bangalore, few months back Audi advertised similar sale but they were demo cars and the price difference was not very much.

They are most probably company owned vehicles used by the employees. The price has to be quoted through sealed tender hence, no fixed price / minimum price has been mentioned.

If anyone is interested in these cars, be sure to verify that the chosen car is NOT a press / media drive vehicle. Trust me, you don't want to buy a vehicle that has been driven by multiple journos for their tests.

Including you?

Just kidding- that is a valuable bit of advice. When you consider the number of threads on TBHP/reports in the newspaper about how authorised dealers gypp customers out of their hard earned money by palming off old or used vehcles onto them, Caveat Emptor is the way to go!

The advert mentions "inspection" of the vehicles, but what about test drives? At least I would never buy a vehicle, especially used, without a proper TD.
