I would really love to have any German beast (car/SUV) with Toyota grade service! I know its a far fetched ask.

Your dream has come true hasn't it?
It just the owning part of it that is remaining

You are absolutely right. I loved the car and since I'm pretty much used to the driving position, the gearshifts and the long throw clutch - the car didnt have any weaknesses to irritate me. Felt like a perfect version of my car.

But then, I'll not be able to own it anytime soon. The resale value of my Punto and the fact that I can't take a loan right now ensures that.

PS - Even petrol prices came down! Man, who would have thought all my wishes would come true one year down the line.

Maruti Baleno with 1.6 MultiJet engine! Practically possible too.
Add 5 star safety package: 6 airbags, ESP, et al and we'll have a car that not only will be flying on the road but something out of Nexa showrooms too!

I love both petrol and diesel cars and have always preferred OEM+ builds.

My ideal petrol car will be a current gen VW polo which has the 1.8 TSi shoehorned into it. 6-Speed Manual transmission, AWD!!!, all safety gadgetry(ABS, EBD, ASC, Launch control), black fabric interior, big brakes from the A4 with the 17 inch Audi/skoda superb Alloys and flat bottom Steering wheel

My ideal diesel car will be the Fiat Punto with the 1.6/1.9 MJD, AWD(FWDs just dont make the cut), 6-Speed MT, big brakes and 17 inch alloys from the Fiat Bravo/500.

The things that I would REALLY wish on my cars is an adaptation of KERS i.e the heat energy released while braking should be used to charge the battery and secondly, the roof and bonnet of the cars should be covered by solar panels and the energy generated by the panels should be used to drive lights and basic functions of the car.

Putting things into a simpler perspective, Mahindra's 2.2 litre MHawk engine in the Toyota Innova would do wonders.

My dream car (SUV) should be like this..
EXTERIOR:
Size of ford excursion
Front end from 2016 ford f150 raptor
Over head lamps like hummer H2
Rear end like ford expedition
19" medium profile off road tyres
Chrome dose all around, especially side gills like a range rover
Gloss black paint
Tinted windows like G wagon
TECHNICAL
Under the hood- a v6 diesel from merc or audi
Transmission - 8 at from ZF
Suspension setup like range rover but with reliability
Landrover like terrain response
Suspension control to counter body roll from porsche
Differntial locks like a g63 amg
Interior
Wide and soft seats like in a cadillac
Center console and Dash board of F150 raptor
Gear lever like a q7 v12tdi
3 rows of beige leather seating
All the electronic goodies you need.
Buttons like a porsche panamera just to look like an aircraft cockpit.
Ooh and yeah roof mounted switches for air compressor to inflate and deflate tyres as in a g65 6x6
Well it seems too yank but if there is an suv like this , you certainly have a customer
