2???????????? r u crazy dude ?????u still quote 2.5 lacs for it??????????man thats a colour change.it was red b4.that 2 he is not sure if it is accidental.

not worth buying unless its for 2 lacs or 2.10 lacs THAT IS IT...........NOT EVEN A SINGLE PENNY MORE.but my personal opiniun wud be not 2 go for it b`coz of the colour change.wont be able to sell it quickly.and that is not even sfxi that is a glxi(NEW ONE IS FOR AROUND 6.5LACS)

just yesterday i went to see a SFXi yday which my friend wants to buy. so he got the car to my place i go out and i see it has 13 inch wheels on it. i was like then its 13 running on 175 i was like eeks. open the door and white leather inside and everything with screen and stuff. good stuff. but a normal 4 spoke wheel im like fishy. the badges say sfx with the skirts and all. its a bombay no car and 2nd owner. he asked 4.75 for that 2002 glx into sfx 18000 kms done. im still shocked at this all. my friend is buying it though for 4.30 he just got sold on the white interiors

Hey people,

I have been driving lancer for two years now. If you think the cars old now I agree but if you say it is out of competition then think again.

1. it is still best looker in the competition(this side od 10lacs)forger octacia RS and mondeo
2. The best handler of a car you can get.Power on invecs rocks
3 Best car to modify
4. Resale value definitely not the best but not as low as the old city vtec(2.75 lacs 2002) and astras that go for less than 2lacs. elantra lies in the same league as lancer but optra octavia and corolla fare better but they are too expensive to maintain compared to lancer.
5. quality of the car is still the selling point and service centers are efficient
6. awarded the car of the year 2005.
7. new invecs rocks

cons

1. Ride not good .can be improved by better tyres(tubeless)
2. power on the low side(I prefer the fuel efficieny of 12-14 with ac in city)(Heres where the modification part comes in.
3. Interiors suck big time and nothin can be done about it
4. New versions going around are just better anyday.Myself will buy a octavia RS anyday against the current lancer (even the invecs doesnt save it)
5. recently a few lot of cars were not good in quality .Hm has taken note and now they are good enough.


no car is perfect but this car has lived a great life in India.I still love mine and respect it. BUt I agree it is old and should retire now.


cheers

How about being clear about the model you are talking about.Whether thats gli,glxi,slxi,sfxi or lei.I am sure you are talking about the glxi.

My friend drives a used vtec that is 2002 bought for 2.75.

the sfxi 2002 model in my city will atleast cost 3.50 lacs.

The only two reasons for this are

1. the vtecs dont take to rash driving easily while lancers do.Again the cost of maintainence is more than 50percent less on lancers than on the city's.A fog lamp kit on a city costs 24k while on lancers it costs 3k.

2. the city has been discountinued and the parts may be hard to procure in future(maybe).

I am not saying this because I own one .But because I know it .AS i said today I wont buy a lancer but a skoda RS .but that doesnt change the fact the lancer is still the best handling car after Octavia RS and mondeo. and still the car with second highest power/weight ratio (invecs after octacvia RS).the invecs glxi will make the a superb contender in modified category.

whats the fuel efficiency man?7?6?5? or even less? thats really cool.What was the investment you put in? your bonnet must be shouting loud now?

So how does it race?

Mine is stock and personally tuned for timing by me.gives mileage of 14kmpl in city with ac on(compares to the new city) and 17-18 on the highway with ac.I raced a ford ikon once beat it badly though a Corolla KEPT ME WAY BEHIND.

I would like to know how your car runs

cheers
