I would have had moved to India long before than i actually did
No I have the regular touch screen version of pioneer, didn't know about this vibration or zizzle feature.. certainly would have been nice to check that out. without the duty would be like a dream come true, if so then a new eclipse GTS fully loaded would be somewhere around 15-17 Lacs.

Ya I think only the black colored car came with beige interiors, plus you know you have very limited choice when you buy a used car.. I can do customization to the interiors but then its too expensive here for any such kind of work.

Thanks, the previous owner kept it very nicely and I have also put in some efforts to keep it nicely. In fact I like this model more than the latest eclipse model. I feel the current version is too curvy.

Beautiful car, Somu. Very well kept. Congrats. You are a lucky man.

What have we done not to have such cars at such price here. The VW Beetle is to be sold at 20L here.

Va Va Vroom. May you have many miles of happy motoring. Lovely photos - absolutely lovely car, great proportions and curves. I can see where the Indian Cedia got its tail lights from.

AC controls look tacky beneath the sleek touch screen GPS.

Once the run in period is done, try to make a trip to Utah/Nevada for the straights and Colorado for the mountain roads - post pics if you can.

I am again starting to envy US emigrants :-)

I wish the same, had it been the case I would have had this same car here in India instead of USA. But I guess import duties and our laws and regulations make it difficult for the manufacturers.

what run-in. I bought it used when it had done all that. But ya the car seems to be as good as new. But please read the review as well along with looking at the pics Like they say "Looks can be deceptive"

Somu, your car looks well-maintained, though it is a 2004 model.
Incidentally, my BIL also had owned one in Arizona and that had the same colour. But the guy only used it for 5000 miles in 8 months and sold it for 15 K, losing 8 K in 8 months!! His was a brand new 2002 model.
