Smile Looking for a Toyota Sera or MR2

I am looking for used toyota sera, mr2, honda crx. Have found one in Mumbai for 3.5L. Request if any one can help me regarding whether cost is correct, whether spares are easily available in Mumbai, comprehensive insurance can be done etc.
Cheers,
Pawan

Rather than the Sera, I'd say go for the MR2:

1. Better performance. Especially in turbo form (200 BHP)

2. Looks killer

3. Toyota reliability + parts available (albeit internationally)

4. Fun to drive

5. Mid-engine RWD layout

Except for the butterfly doors, I can't think of any reason to buy a Sera.

With reference to the same thread, even I am searching for an MR2, SERA etc. Priority for a SERA, due to the Gullwing Doors as my wife is crazy anout this.

Waiting on this

Thank you guys. I am new to team BHP and this is my first post, hence have to still do R&D to search correct sites.

The reason for Sera is only price, I did enquire about mr2 and trust me liked it too…but was always got it in range of 7 to 10 L where as Sera is 3.5 with decent power (110 bhp).

I have Honda city and recently met with an accident and the claim is more than 70K so was wondering before I open my winds its always better to know where I am heading to and maintaining an imported car should not become night mare.

Checked this website called JapaneseUsedCars.biz. They had very exciting used car deals. I wanted to know that does it make sense to buy a car from them and then have it shipped here? (i stay in Delhi). The custom duty is 101.93% and i checked their frieght charges. They want Rs.54,000. Not a bad deal is it? Please help i really need an MR2 or a SERA urgently.

I dont think you can import a used car to India except in the Transfer Of Residence case. Otherwise India would be flooded by them.
