Congrats on the bishi at a wonderful price. I think at that price and the condition you found it, it's like daylight robbery! I feel bad that the Indian version is underpowered. It would be great to have a 180-200 bhp Cedia in the market...I suggest that before any other performance mods you go in for an ECU remap and a FFE. Also the stock intake on the Cedia is pretty good, a replacement filter will probably help breathing a bit. Power gains will be very significant with the above, and can't imagine 50 grand better spent on this car.

The cedia was my first choice while hunting for a new car, but when dad gave me the key to the accord I did not contest.

I am very happy for you. You will discover that you have made an excellent decision in the coming months.

You have perceived the Cedia well.
As you modify the car, it would return good dividends.

For LESS than HALF the money of what I spent, you have found a fabulous car.
See if you can get the MOMO wheel on it, the feel is enhanced with that wheel.
Get some after market Sparco pedals to spruce up the pedal feel.

Welcome to the CEDIA club!!
Wish you many miles filled with smiles.
I am not sure if I can get the Momo wheel, as I think due to the sirbag, the complete assembly needs to be changed...I guess it costs somewhere between 30-40k. THough I am not sure about it. Will enquire about it when I get my car serviced next month.

And the SPARCO pedal.. yes I am look for them..will get them up soon

Sukrit, there is a 2006 golden cedia in Ashok Vihar with a dealer..i think satish motors. Also there was a yellow 2007 cedia up for sale. Enquire with Kiran Motors, Karol Bagh. the owner (some politician) was asking for 5 lac. His son was about to go abroad and he wanted to sell the car before 30 may. I am not sure if the car is still there but you can enquire.You may get it for less than 5.

I am still not sure about the performance upgrades, as the market for the upgrades in India is still not good. I think in Delhi only Arush can do it.

But yes the first thing I want to change is the Tyres... it ll be either Yokohama S-Drive or Michelin PPS2.

5 lakhs is what paid for my Palio Multijet (a new one, though)! Now that's a sweet deal. Congratulations, a real driver's car, but perhaps a few more horses would do justice.

Very sweet deal indeed Gaurav

But i still think that looks can still be improved though there is no question about the driveability of lancer against some other sedans and at this price its a steal.

Try getting some cool alloys and nice shoes of this beauty and possibly some tints too.

Tints enhance the looks on white colored cars and save from sun too.

Happy motoring

Congrats on a great driver's car, Gaurav. Your Cedia highlits the very reasons behind my belief in the used car market...modern cars have a 1.5 - 2.0 lakh km life at the minimum while depreciation is massive in the first three years (especially for some cars in particular). Net net, you've bought a 1.5 year old 10 lakh sedan for half the price! Really can't do better for 5 lakh rupees. I don't suppose I'm buying a new car for the next 10 years, what with all the lucrative deals in the pre-owned segment.

Well-written opening post. Good news for you is, there's decent after-market support for the Cedia. Surely a plus for the enthusiast in you?

Drive safe.

GTO, i was sure that you would like this deal/steal. Bargain hunters in used car segments really beat the recession.

Congrats Gaurav! I was keeping track of the Cedia threads in Team-BHP and this is a great steal for the price! Have a great time driving it. Its a premium sedan for 5 laks, almost new!

I am looking for one near Pune too and hope I get a deal as good as this.

Cheers!
Payne

Gaurav, she looks really good. Congrats! and 5 lacs in a steal in my opinion. I recently came across a 2 year old Cedia with 27k on the odo. Owner was asking for 6.5.

You can say that again. Saw a pristine Accord V6 (previous gen) going for 6.5 lakhs! Only good news for the smarter buyers out there.

5 L for a 1.5 yr old D segment sedan?! Incredible! Man, you landed a good deal for a very good car.
Congrats and enjoy your drive.
