well i am still not sure of considering the getz. i know it will be a very powerful car and has good space, but it is still a hatchback.

Anyways the getz crdi TD car will be here next week. Will take a TD and then decide. And ya, the ex-showroom price is quoted at 6.5l in tvm.

Sorry that was a typo. it is 5.6l

And about the elantra, i tried my hands on photoshop. the bumper is actually done by kitup, i have just extended the bonet a little bit. IMHO it looks much better now.

The kitup elantra


The photoshopped one

I read an article in autocar india where they were talking about the Octavia as a taxi abroad.It had done around 6 lakh K/m but still the engine hadn't been opened for overhauling..My say the best option would be a second hand octavia or a new verna crdi
