I would buy a used M800 than Nano since I've heard that Nano is meant for the city roads only like Reva !

^^I support PAlio 1.2
U can get a well maintained Palio 1.2 ELX for say 1.2 L with ICE. Much bigger than Nano/M800, even M esteem.
Priceless satsfaction of owning a wonderful car than the feeling of owning a small M800/ nano cause u didn't have the money for bigger car.

I voted for the M800/Omni because, barring the intial cost (Contessa, Cielo, Amby, etc.,) none other can match a Nano in its running cost and availability of spares (Matiz)!

I recently sold my Santro, 2001 for 1.3lakhs! Its solidly built car than Maruti's anyday! Reliable 1.0 engine, creamy gearbox rattle free drive, easy get in and get out and so many other options. I would anyday put my 1lakh in a Hyundai rather than a TATA.

opel astras are available for 75,000 most of them are well maintained and since my friend was interested in 1 we inquired at GM service center and they say spare parts should not be a problem for the next 4 to 5 years if i was in need on a car in the 1 lakh budget opel astra would be the 1 i would go for
