The offer you have given him is very generous; such a car would be a good pick for 8 lakhs. 8.5? Sure, since you know the owner and can vouch for the way he has maintained it. But not a penny above.

Should I raise my offer to possibly seal the deal midway between these, or am I being foolish since I could get a car for less than Rs 8 lakh with only a little more effort in checking out its quality etc.?

Any thoughts are welcome!
You have already offered him more than the fair value of the car now it doesn't make any sense for him asking 9.5 lacks ,being a relative you don't have to pay more for the car which no one would buy for even 9 lacks let alone 9.5 ( that is the price of a pristine Honda Accord 2005 -06) ,To my surprise 9.5 lacks is even higher than what Honda,s auto terrace would ask you where they will offer you a certified car with additional warranty the real price for a car like this to me is not more than 8 lacks

I was also looking for a used 2006-07 Alto Lxi last week. I feel Alto prices are inflated due to large popularity of this car.

Brand new Alto Lxi in Pune costs 3.05 to 3.15 lacs after discounts. At one Maruti Truevalue outlet they are quoting 2.78 lacs for Mar 07 Alto run for 20K Kms ! Damn no!! I can get brand new car for another 30-35 thousands.

As for the one you are looking, it will be 2 years old in another 3 months, is nearing 30K running which is almost 1/3rd life over, considering you won't use it post 90K-1 lac KMs. For another 75K or so you may get a brand new car. In short 2 lacs for that car seems fine to me. Just my take, you are better judge since you are seeing it in flesh.

Kauzy,

As i said you might need to check carwale value tool, it may give you a rough idea for the same though on the lower side. You might also want to put up on t-bhp classifieds.

EDIT: Done for the sake of beast

Question How much for a 2000 BMW 318i?

After having looked at a Forester and then at a Skoda RS 1.8 Turbo to replace my 2004 Opel Vectra 2.2, the latest contender is a 2000 BMW 318i. I rcently looked at a well maintained 318i which has covered about 56k kms, single owner, registered in June 2000. What do you guys think?
I need suggestions, inputs on the right pricing and estimates of maintenance costs and I need them fast as I need to take a decision in the next 24 hours.
thanks in advance.
Peace

Honda civic 2007 S cover 10K Km for 9.25 is this the good buy or shall I offer him less and he is second owner and I will become third. Considering this I feel 9.25 is too high for this car. What you say?

Ford Ikon CLXI 1.3 2002 July Model, done 75000 Kms, presently at a Ford dealership with a malfunctioning PCM which costs 41 K. I dont see value in investing so much on the car at this stage and would rather exchange it for a new one.

Im exploring the sell back option with Fors, what price do you think I should settle for?
