Heh heh Alok, welcome to the Fiesta 1.6 club (I have a SXI like Yogi); haven't you read Ford's statutory warning - THE DURATEC ENGINE IS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE

By the way Yogi, the thread title has a typo, he has the ZXI (still a good buy I think)

Superb deal Alok. I can imagine the 70mm smile on your face each time you drive your baby!

The car is worth it, check around for the price if you can get a better deal, but 2005 with only 35K kms on the clock is good.
Spares will never be a problem, we are talking about Maruti, with a pan-Indian presence, and thousands of these cars on the road - not a Daewoo that has closed shop.

If the car is in pristine order, the price is more than justified. Get it checked by a mechanic and if it all seems ok, buy it!

Flipside - since you already own a Baleno, you can look at other cars for variety sake.

optra is not hot in second hand market. a seconds car dealer in chennai told me that an optra bought for 8.6lacs in 2004 (no sunroof, no leather seats, petrol, 1.6 LT i guess) would fetch only 3.75lacs today.

co registered means company registered?? if so beware - company owned cars might be passed on to more than 1 employee without any change in RC before landing on you.

whats the price quoted? go for it if its like 4.25lacs or so. remember that you might find it real hard to sell it when it hits 6yrs or so. I wont be surprised if GM discontinues optra by the time you wish to re-sell.

One of my friends is still struggling to sell of his 2006 model "drunkard" (Optra LT 1.8 AT). He started with 10 lacs and now at 6 lacs and still no luck. I think in your case, it shouldnt be more than 5 lacs.

I think 4-4.25L should be a fair price for the Optra.

A 1.6 Ls in quite a good condition went for around 3.75 here. So this one Since its fully loaded will be around 4.25. But beware, the 1.8 is quite a drinker!
