A Tempo Traveller - totally modified on the interiors according to my wants. Get a reliable driver and I am set.

That could be like killing 2 birds with one stone

You get a car and a home too.

bad move !

had one in my uncles family actually still do. parts started coming off in the same week of delivery. power steering started making noise like if you were choking the hell out of it. was neat from inside i guess but a torture to own. not worth it at all. price paid 30 laks plus the truck thats like 5 laks. uncle got fed up and bought a 750li. price paid for that 99 laks plus a 3 month wait.

Definitely a diesel car.
Swift Vdi/Ldi or if possible a Safari.

I got a car just 4 months back. So my next upgrade will be ONLY after (minimum) 2 or 3 years. By then lot many new cars will be available in the market. So dont know which one i will be going for. But yes, It will definetely be a diesel.

As of now i would go for Chevrolet Optra Magnum.

Realistically speaking, for personal use, I would love to get something in the line of a used Golf GTi or a 2008 Lancer GTS out here in the U.S.
In mumbai, as a personal car, even though that's some time away, a Lancer Cedia or the likes if it is still in production.

Default Bolero 4x4

My next car will be (which will be 3 to 4 years away)

Bolero 4x4 provided

- Bolero still available
- with CRDE engine
- Independent suspension at Rear and front
- Better braking
- Middle row seat split and fold option - the only muv/suv which does not have this as of now, how can you call it an MULTI UTILITY if the seats cannot be folded for more luggage
