This sounds interesting.
First will be a Gypsy King running on 33 inch tyres and plonked with a Baleno engine to conquer Delhi traffic and also so that those Tavera Taxi people stop and give me way before I crush them. (8 lakhs considering a used Gypsy)
The second will be a nicely done up E36 (just love it since Abix did his car up) (probably around 8-10 lakhs)
So am left with 12-14 lakhs. This calls for a Toyota Altis. I mean the first two will be in the workshop for some reason or the other, so I need a Japani gaadi that never lets me down.
If somehow am left with a lakh (or I will get a loan) a black Thunderbird (because I love it and have been dreaming of buying one)

Option C:

One good SUV - a 4x4, more for the package than for off-roading
One Sedan - must be equally good for city & highway
One small car for the city & for the bad driver

I chose option C
Would go for a Honda Accord (/Skoda Superb) + Honda Jazz.

But I wouldnt mind going for Option A if I already had a second car - which would probably be true for most buyers. I mean, any guesses on how many people actually have just the one Merc/BMW/Audi in their garage, and nothing else?

The cocktail:

-- Pre-Owned(and Peted) Chevy Cruze for the long highway drives(9L tops).
-- Used Naked Superbike a la Honda CB1000(5L tops)
-- Used Swift P for city runs(3L tops)
-- Build a capable 4x4 gypsy(4L tops)
-- Used Karizma for small errands(50k tops).

I'll spend the rest on riding gears, fuel and ICE.

Heady, Isn't it?

A brand new A4 doesn't sound so bad

Yes, I'll take a black one with red leather interiors please. Righto!
