I am happy with my bike and my wagon.

With the 3 Million, I will buy myself a nice small microlight aircraft.
They cost between 1 to 2 million INR.

The money to spare goes into the fuel that I will burn up flying across India.

If wishes were horses, i would have as many as possible

Ok, here goes:

A P220 (0.8 lakh) - This will be my daily runabout.
Ducati Monster (9 lakhs) - Its a childhood dream.
A Harley Davidson VRod (12 lakhs) - Now which year did terminator 2 release :thinking:
Polo 1.6 (7 lakhs): A hot hatch to do the family duties
A Nano (1.2 lakhs): Ok. a couple more thousand. But i believe in the story and the vision of the Nano and would definitely love to have it in my garage.

I would buy a car that I may not be able to afford otherwise, so a preworshipped 5-Series or an E-Class for me!

Voted for a cocktail mix, my own choice being:

New Vento Diesel (12L) for the chauffeur-driven runs, for Mom & Dad
New Figo Petrol Titanium (5.5L) for me and me only
New i10 Auto (6L) for wifey and city runs
New Activa/Access/Flyte (50K) to share between wifey and me, for all those "just around the corner" errands
Ambassador Mk2, fully restored (1L) just for kicks!

This leaves 5L in the kitty, which I will use to import a 1.6 (125PS) Zetec engine, gearbox, ECU, clutch from Europe for my Figo, get uprated brakes and suspension, new wheels & tyres, ICE ...

Default No W123?

I am really surprised no one has mentioned about cars prior to 1985.

My list
1. A beautifully maintained W123 (MUST HAVE) - 3 L
2. Pre-worshiped 2008 / 09 Superb - 14 L
3. Late 80's Land Rover - 3 L
4. Two Parking lots - 5 L
5. Maintenance - 5 L


As everyone mentioned no Gypsy / Jeep, since I already have a CL340DP 4WD (MM Classic) and a W124 E220

Mine goes like this :

1. First gen Maruti Zen - Easy to maintain and zippy 'nuff to run around in city. Well maintained, in good shape car should cost about 2L.

2. Chevy Cruz LTZ Automatic - as a Highway runner - 16L.

3. Harley Davidson XL 1200N Nightster - Weekend \ Night rides : 10L

With 2L to spare, it can be further used up to spruce up the Zen a little bit.

Option C without a doubt.

- A used (preferably black) Skoda Octavia vRS, Pete'd to 240 horses. (12.5 lakhs roughly) : The weekend car!
- A new (white) VW Polo 1.6. : The daily driver!
- A new (blue) Honda Jazz (it really is, everything rolled into one. Trust me! ) : For the family and the long trips to Goa!

My choices for my 30L garage

1. New Toyota Fortuner or similar diesel SUV. AT preferred.
2. Ford Figo TDCi diesel
3. A-star AT small hatch

A practical garage although a bit over the 30L limit.
