A fully loaded Honda Jazz, and a worshipped OHC VTEC (something along the lines of what GTO had). Invest the rest in a house so that I've a parking space for more than one car, and use the rest of the money I've left for the maintenance and upgrade costs for the two. I guess I'd love to give the Cruze a try too, but that would push the budget over 30... but, when I can afford a garage worth 30L, just wonder about the amount of loan I'd be eligible for...

Although I Voted for New BMW 3 series. But surely a cocktail of cars is definitely more sensible.
1) Ford Figo 1.4D (mid Variant) - For short trips nearby,Family. (5L)
2) Vento Diesel Highline + Powerbox +16" (10L+1=11L) Just for me. Regular use.
3) Laura 1.8 TSi 6speed manual. (14L) Only when the Mood Kicks.

This is a bit unconventional,but I would go and get a pre-worshipped 1998 Jaguar XKR.
I genuinely love that thing and I would die of happiness if I could buy one...

An assortment would be good:
1) A Pre worshipped Skoda RS- 5 Lacs
2) Brand New Fiat Linea MJD - 9 Lacs
3) Kawasaki Ninja New - 3 Lacs
4) Tata Safari - 8 Lacs
5) TVS Apache RTR 180 - 0.8 Lacs
Balance on Maintenance and Fuel bills.
I would prefer a mix and match of cars from all sectors--Sedans(Prefer them over Hatch), SUV and a good powerful Bike for long drives. The RTR for short local trips.

By Chance I already have the same Garage:
1 Brand new Corolla Altis: ~ 14 Lakhs
Second Hand Grand Vitara AT ~ 8 Lakhs
One MM 55O XDP ~ 3 Lakhs
That makes 25 Lakhs
Now with another 5 lakhs remaining I'd like
a good Second hand Wagon R for 2-3 Lakhs
And a Gypsy 4x4 Mpfi for ~ Rs 3 lakhs.
EDIT: and last if I save 5O thousand then a good second hand black Bullet bike

First of all thanks to the moderator for such a nice thread to start.
In a 30 L budget i would like to have the
1) The hottest hatchback possible - So that even easy to move in traffic with attention, power & style.
2) Would like to have a Jeep originally restored but slightly modified for practical use.
3) A 500cc/600cc+ Sports bike for commuting in free-revving mood.
4) A Type 2 Honda City modified as Jitu Suri has i would envy that.
or a massive SUV to conquer both on road & off road fun.
This would be an ideal 30L garage BTW have procured item 1 & 2 waiting-searching for a suitable item 3 & 4 also.
