Euro IV deadlines were notified many years back, and the technical specs even earlier. Strange that some European car makers were still selling Euro III compliant cars till March. I can understand Euro III compliant cars being launched in the early-2000s, but late-2000s is too much to digest. That means that the engine was developed sometime in the late-1990s/early-2000s.

What will happen to existing cars, will I get FC on OHC.
I was more interested in Tractors, Garbage trucks, autos, police vans, jeeps and police buses, even military trucks, will they continue to pollute.
I think its just a deal between Car manufacturers and Govt to suck more blood from car buyers. BS4 will not change the scene, untill existing vehicles also come under some norms

Intriguing question, an answer to which I'd love to know.

My guess : Yes, the RTO will issue a fresh fitness certificate once the car is 15 years old. Simply because, even in a BS-III world, we saw 1990 cars with renewed FCs without a problem.

Yes, but need to pay additional green tax(as per current norms) after the fifteenth year, but it also depends on the future government policy.

Default New alto registration!

Dear BHPians,

Today I saw something very surprising. In our housing complex, a brand new Alto has arrived! It is definitely registered in the past couple of days, in the MH 02 series.

I wonder how this is possible.

CLJ, I am sure, they would had thought of this as the only way to phase out ambassador so that they can raise quotations for newer & costlier wheels

If they can wait for Swift's ugly aunt [DZIRE] for 3 months! , alto is much better looking in its segment

May be MSIL will try to fire up the A-Star sales during this oppurtunity. Any discounts going for that model?
Great thought and probably bang on.
