Found the Bently or Rolls yet? Also, might i suggest the new A4 instead of the boring Jetta. Also, Two Thumbs up for the RR Sport!! But it has to be in orange!!

no i dont count the classics and vintages otherwise i would have a big list Cyrus. still have not found a good one.
i am replaceing the corolla with the Jetta so the A4 is out of the budget. the RR sport is in silver but i would have prefered the Buckingham Blue. you can see the colours at Land Rover - Welcome to Land Rover

Very interesting thread this. For me, since I just got my first car, I'll be looking for same quality and attention detail that skoda/VW has afforded in the Fabia E. So the next car (3-4 yrs down), has to be better (think laura/passat quality)

However, I would like a Small SUV form (Vitara, CRV, Fortuner kind), with a price around 15L, and dont think any combination of these attributes is present in the market today. So hoping to see some good stuff before time comes!

Hmm interesting read all of this thread. My cedia sports is not yet completed a year yet. But As my next car, I will wait for some sub 20L 2 seater coupe like mitsu esclipse (or something like that) in this range, if we ever get anything here in India. Though possibilities is very rare.

My next car will, in all probability, be from the Tata stable. Inclined towards the Indigo CS LS TDi at the moment.

After living with the Indica for ~65 months and ~90000 km, every other car feels cramped in the driver's seat.

Its an interesting thread ! I am still hunting for a decent Jeep (old good condition CJ series or new wrangler type) in its real form. That will be pure weekend off-road thrills. For serious family long trips, I seriously consider a CRV right now, or a Cayenne in few months time !

OT. i did book the 530i before it was launched in India but cancelled it for specific reasons.

OT. i am trying to get the AMG kit for the car but need some advice if i should or not. and also if anyone has any idea how much it costs. thanks.
