Way back in '96, I remember the "on" for a Zen being as high as 30,000 & the Opel Astra 20,000 (early days).
I had paid 40k for my Silver Indica DLX as "on" in '99

We paid 4.5lakhs for our MH410 Zen in 1996 with pioneer system,central locking,fancy number,sunfilm which were not common then.

What was the ex-showroom price of Zen then?

After Sam & N_C's successful trip from Mumbai to Delhi in a Nano, what I want to ask is whether this car actually deserves the premium it is getting in the second hand market or is this a simple case of demand-supply gap?
