I have seen the car and it is in good condition.
Is it a good deal? What is the max that can be paid for this deal?

Please suggest.
Way too high. Better to avoid this one as you will find it very hard to sell later on.

Thanks Sameer. Noob question - will the A.S.S entertain me if I take the car to get it checked?

Yes, they will surely entertain you, tell them that you are in process of buying this car and ask them to check it thoroughly, and tell you what all work requires to be done in the car.

They may charge you for this, but when you're spending more then 10 big one's. It's better to get her checked before

Bring it down to under 10L, the more you bring down the price the less you lose when you want to sell it again. I am sure there is no one queuing up to buy this one. A good deal would be around 8-9L. Please check service records, insurance track records and also as suggested take it to the A.S.S and get it verified IF you are going ahead with this one.

thanks. Any reason other than mileage / petrol due to which one should not go for this?

Been on a lookout for a Maruti 800 from quite sometime. Have inquired about a car at one True Value dealer. Am sharing the deal, would like to know is this a fair deal. Does 800 still costs that much.

Maruti 800 AC Duo
Model: 2009
Kms Run: 32000
Color: White
Price quoted: 1,50,000 including the transfer costs & all.

The price sounds pretty good. the mileage on the 325 will be pretty low. Expect around 6 to 7 in the city. Make sure the tyres are in good shape because a new set of runflats is going to cost you quite a bit.
I am not too sure if you can get any information about the car at the BMW service centre. Atleast some service centres don't give out any information. They insist on you taking the car to the service centre which is only possible if the owner doesn't you doing so. It helps if you know someone at BMW anywhere in the country. That way you can get him to check the record.

At this price you will get a WagonR/Santro in good condition.

Price is on higher side IMO.

quoted price is too high for a M800. try to bring it down to around 1.1-1.2 lac. any particular reason on why you are looking for only M800? with a budget of 1.5-1.7 lac you can get Santro/Alto/Esteem.

Exactly what i thought, have even mentioned it in my post . Will try to get the price down to 1-1.2 Lac which i highly doubt as its True Value, or else will look for another deal.
Main reason for considering a 800 is cheap to own & run and compact dimensions. It will be ruined (read driven) by a driver so maintenance is a high priority. Don't want to spend a huge amount every now and then on brakes, clutch and all.
Santro/ Alto/ WagonR/ Esteem parts are on higher side compared to M-800 IMO.

BTW thanks a lot for replying folks, appreciate that.

I was looking for a similar car for a cousin of mine, we found one in mint condition. Red in colour, 2008, owned by a retired govt. employee and with less than 30,000 on the odo. He was quoting 1 Lakh. This one did not have AC though. So in your case I would say 1.2L max.

And like the others have advised, i too would recommend increasing your budget to 1.5-1.6 lakhs and going for a good condition used Alto. Its got a smoother engine, 5 speed gearbox and also power brakes. These things make a huge difference.

Guys,
I had a chance to view the car and take a longish test drive. But here's the shocker.
The mileage mentioned in ad (22500) is incorrect, the dealer told me upfront that the clock has been reset or something to that tune and hence the low count of 22500 and he says its close to 62000 KMS. On feeling the condition of the dash trim and steering wheel I feel that 62000 is too conservative, I feel its close to a 100000 KMS.

On the positive side, the car seems to be a in a good nick, its clearly been given a paint job but no evidence of any accident, the suspension has been changed at an independent garage and not at HASS. The car seemed good to drive with no creaks or rattles or any whine from anywhere.

Had it not been for the tampered odo reading I would've been tempted to consider this car.

Can you suggest what would be a good price to pay for a 2004/05 Honda City Automatic? We are specifically looking at this model only. I'm seeing prices in the range of 2.5 to 2.8L, is this correct?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards
