Pros & Mods, Please help.
try for within 1lakh....sierras go for about 75 for the turbo here in delhi but since its got new tyres (ice rarely commands a premium)and it being a bangalore car, where prices for used cars are always high , i probably would have given 1.2 for the car but definitely , you cant call it a steal.

digitalblood please have a very very good look at the sierra if it has everything that you wanted it to have and doesnt require a paint and body job , is mechanically sound and you are not going to end up doing it all anew then 1 to 1.2 lacs is a decent price because at 60 to70 k you will end up with vehicle which will require 50 k to set it straight.
if the current owner has kept the car in pristine condition go for it cos these specimens are few and far between

Please take up this exercise before you buy. Pop into 3 or 4 used car dealerships. Tell them that you are looking for a car and while you are discussing the options available slowly let in that you have a SIERRA 98 model with all that is said above. See what they say, add about 25% to their average quoted price and that should be the price for the SIERRA.

Having said that, you could still make an emotional desicion. A SIERRA bought for even 2 lakhs, if it does not burn a hole in your pocket can still keep you smiling

As you have already mentioned, Bangalore is sure a place where you endup paying that "little extra" on everything. After a lot of math & Random, i have zeroed in on a sierra & am firm on the decision now. It is either a sierra or nothing. Thanx for the consoling line "i probably would have given 1.2 for the car".

I have taken a very neat & a very long look at the beast and was quite happy at its maintenance. The current owner has maintained it very very neat except for a small 1 Rupee coin size rust on the driver door. He also told me that the gasket for the silencer has been roasted & the smoke enters the cabin when speeding over 70 kmph. However, after a test drive, i found that the suspension needs a VERY LITTLE attention. Apart from this, i fund nothing awry in it and i actually increased my fixed budget due to temptation.

I did take a good friend along for the test drive & this guy happens to understand the tunes of such beasts better than me. Even his conclusion was that i will not be able to find another such piece in such good condition. Though i cant decide on just one person's opinion, I thought it would be a great help in deciding on this particular machine by taking all your help.

Thanx a bunch all!

So have you finally bought your Sierra ?

I have bought a Sierra a couple of years ago and it is in very good condition with no need of any mechanical work needed except a regular service.

Even then I have managed to spend 30-40 k on stuff I wanted upgraded for the car (tyres / battery / seat covers / autocops / vkool). So if this car comes preloaded with what you would want, hope you have bought it already !

Post some pics

unfortunately, not yet. :( Had to re-route the money for medical expenses that rose from no-where.

Still struggling to fill up the empty slot.

Nice pics guys! Makes me nostalgic! Also made me wonder, TATA reely did come up with gorgeous vehicles during that time (Safari, Sierra) which were ahead of its time! Wonder what happened later to TATA(Of course Indica & Nano did get a lot of attention but still...) ?
