Like many have already said, please wait fo rthe new Indica to be launched - it will definitely be worth the wait. Once you are used the spacious insides of the Indica, anyother car in the class (or a class above!) will look cramped.

On the other hand, give the Getz CRDi a shot too!

i'd love to wait for the new Indica expected to arrive around Diwali, but since I am getting opportunity now to sell my Indica for a decent sum (1.6 to1.65 lakhs), i dont want to miss it! its already 5 years and 2 months old and more delay could erode the value...

also i am scared to think of the prices of used cars once Nano is launched around the same time...

since i need another car at the earliest after I sell the Indica, I have to consider other models. Swift VDI is a no brainer but for the insane wait period.

Palio SDX is a serious contender, followed by Indigo CS. but frankly i have not ruled out any option or good deal.

too much research is driving me crazy...

its a day of mixed feeling for me...

i finally sold my black beauty today, thru the showroom where i booked the Vista.

It has served me faithfully for 5 years and never let me down.

It was heart wrenching to see it being driven off by someone else finally...

anyway this deal has now covered the down payment for my Vista and hopefully i will collect the new car in 2 days.

thats the sad thing: i didnt :(

i didnt expect it to be sold yesterday itself so it was a surprise to see the buyer paying me in cash and taking possession (aftre the documentation).

it happened so fast, i realised i hadnt taken a picture after he drove off in it.

I know what you mean. I have sold 3 cars so far and each time it has been a gut wrenching experience. When you spend so much time in a car, it becomes a small part of your life.
Even now, I sometimes think whether the new owner is taking good care of the car? Well, one can only hope.
