A perfect Rs.30 Lakhs garage for me would be a mixture of diesel and petrol to give me pleasure of both worlds and ofcourse, both should be movers

1. Chevrolet Cruze LTZ ( Rs.16 Lakhs)

2. Skoda Laura TSi (Rs.13 Lakhs)

Balance Rs. 1 Lakh for tyre upgrades to both.

I dare someone to honk me from behind on a highway

Hmm...Aren't they a little too similar to each other size and performance wise.

Option C for me:

1. A pre-worshipped Mahindra Classic.
2. A couple-of-years-old Mitsubishi Cedia Sports (for daily runs).
3. A pre-worshipped Honda CBR1000.
4. A pre-owned Hindustan Contessa (with flame paints, chrome rims and stuffs).
5. A pre-worshipped W124 Mercedes Benz E250 (just for that build quality).

My cars haul the highway a lot more than city roads. So my choice would depend on the radius of highway travel:

1. Under 300Kms - Indica Vista Quadrajet (New) @ 5-6 Lacs
2. Under 500Kms - Chevy Cruze (Used) @ 7-8 Lacs
3. Under 700Kms - Skoda Superb Diesel (Used - Current Gen) @ 11-13 Lacs
4. Under 1000Kms - Toyota Innova (Used + Fitted with a larger fuel tank) @ 5-6 Lacs

Wise choice i must say.
But Is it possible to fit a larger tank on an innova?

Mitsubishi EVO X or IV (10-15lacs) incl of all the RTO stuff.
A Tata Safari (12l)
A Bullet 1980 STD

The leftover will be spent on pepping the EVO...

I am in my very early twenties and would like to experience all the pre luxury cars before i graduate to the luxury sedans and SUVs by the time i am in my late twenties.

My usage is quite high and so i prefer diesels anyday.

I love only brand new cars and not pre-owned or pre-worshipped ones.I would anyday prefer a smaller new car over a bigger used car.Purely my opinion.

I love all my cars in white.

I chose option C
My 30L garage would consist of a
Yamaha R15 ~1L
For gen early morning and night drives to gym and grocery stores.
Ford Figo ~5L
For my in city commute.
Hyundai Accent ~6L
Purely to satisfy my fantasy.I love the shape and design of the Accent very much and it's price.
Tata Safari ~8.5L
For dad,business and highway drives.
And the rest 9 lakhs to ensure a trouble free maintenance for my cars-services,spares,accessories and FUEL for atleast two years.

Unfortunately GTO has squeezed the limits of the dream a li'l tightly - can 30L not be stretched to 45L??

Within the "constrained budget" I'd imagine splurging in the following indulgences:
  1. Bullet Classic - new
  2. Mahindra Getaway 4x4
  3. Pre-owned and well maintained OHC VTEC
  4. Chevy Cruze
  5. A cozy towed caravan (not quite sure how much will it cost)

Alas! A bimmer & Maruti Suzuki Gypsy would not get in! The garage wouldn't be complete :(

I would simply chill at home until the MINI cooper S is launched in summer 2011 and then plunge on the showroom with cash splashed all over the floor.

Entry level germans' dont give you much stuff inside and the holy M's are way beyond the given budget!

The BMW MINI would be perfect to park beside the sedans.
