Looks like BMW and MBIL are after each others Life. Also I read in autocar/overdrive/car india that due to failure of Fiat/Mercerdes Deal , BMW and Mercerdes are talking of a deal for the small cars, 0Not sure about India. but that may mean the end of the rivalry.

I hate to go OT, but in this age of on-tap information, we still consider M3 a crowning glory! Please! Have a look at the Alpina B3 Bi-Turbo and you would know M3 isn't worth the salt. And the best of the deal doesn't end here. You could buy an Alpina Tuned 3 Series (which beats M3 hands down) and still get a.s.s. from BMW. Yes, BMW does give after sales support for Alpina tuned BMW. Same goes for all other Alpina tuned Beemers. And as far as I know, they are the only ones BMW supports.

PS : I know many already must be aware of the fact but the comment below just felt like an exaggeration. No personal war intended.

im just waiting for someone to bring out a good RWD car for 20 lakhs odd and that will sooo be the car to buy.
Like bmw said :- Front wheel drive is the work of satan.
god im so fed up with everything on indian roads. damn it !!!
And not mention a BMW m5 for 1 Cr plus? and a BMW M6 for 1.6 Cr?? jesus what the hell ?? Bently sells the Continetal GTC fot 1.6 Cr . Wake up BMW !!!
I own a M3 in the states. Not the new V8 , The straight 6. Beautiful car.
But id never pay close to 200,000 $ US ( 1 Cr )for a M5 LOL LOL LOL. Thats Ferrari Money.
so yeah definately not BMW. Killer cars..with a price to kill you .

hopefully things will change come 2008.

I chose Tata because of what they've done by way of the Nano and because what they have done to the old Sumo to make it the all new Sumo Grande.

even to the above, after the showcasing of the nano by TATA in the auto show they truly deserve being the manufacturer of the year hands down. Nano would be kind of an innovation in the automobile industry.. cutting prices to an all new level

Hats off to TATA

Default Its Suzuki!

I think the voting title should be manufacturer of the year 2007!

Its Suzuki, which has given SX4 and Swift D. Tata's Nano and new Indica are launched in 2008 and not yet on the road, so I will think about it when we vote for manufacturer of the year 2008/9!

Default Suzuki

I think that Suzuki deserves the top spot.
Suzuki made a splash with SX4.
And then the unthinkable happened. Honda city lost its position.

Maruti(Suzuki) was the one that was able to consistently notch up sales without any problems and the customer satisfaction is as usual good as compared with the numbers.
