Mine would be the Fiat Palio MJD. Also decided on the color- Mint White! Saw one and was bowled over by it!!

Arrey Bongali babu, it is RWD & has the same engine as the Supra! So slap on a turbo here & a turbo there & pretty soon you'll have a bloody quick drawing room on wheels!

Definitely the Linea diesel (hopefully the 1.9) to replace the OHC.

Gears,

Hey Spadival, I have identified a beautiful maroon color, immaculate condition Mitsubishi GT3000 in NSW. My bro has already checked out the car & very decent price too. I've already saved up for it & it will be waiting for me when I land down under. All the best with your endeavors.

Thats interesting as Im waiting for the Xenon as my next vehicle .. but hoping TATA doesn't mess up with quality , if not quality then the pricing !!

Xenon for me ... or some pick up with decent power and macho looks !!

I will be transferring the monies to my bro only when my visa is done, he is a car freak too, but he somehow did not prefer the raw power delivery of the 3000GT & overall it has some engine enhancements done. But good try dude, lets pray everything goes smooth & then catch up on a drink of Jim Beam, what say cheers:

What's up with most of the team?? A lot of them for Diesel cars huh?

My next car would be a Honda CRV/ Fiat MJD. Nothing in my decision about the fuel which they run on. Its just the cars themselves that i love.

You bet! It's the effect of increased availability, common-rail engines, power & power boxes and fuel prices.

Hopefully if I can afford it I would buy;
1. Scorpio MHAWK 4WD (Hybrid Diesel plus Electric) if available
2. Any other Diesel / Hybrid 4WD SUV/Jeep type vehicle that may be launched in the next couple of years.

I want to experience what it feels like to stop paying EMIs So New car is ruled out for now!

Next car: In the next 5-7 years: Really (x2) good small car: like a BMW 1 series or Audi A3 ... only if its manufactured here (else cant afford!!)

And way oil is heading, a Nano running on water/air please!!
