68k is a lotta mileage and I feel you paid a bit more for a car of this vintage and u mentioned that you spent some amount of money after buying it as well. An auto would be easy for your sis? Hows the condition of the white one?

white one requries some work(clutch,brakes,oils) too but overall better then the gold one(electrical,front suspension(done yest),oils(done yest))....now to sit and convince my dad.......
white one is still on original paint and the current owner is the second owner,asking price is 2.18 lac non negotiable +5k for the broker...this gold one is an single owner piece who covered it up with gold and chrome!
(bumpers,mirrors,door locks:gold,
crome grill,crome strip,crome bumper guards and wheel caps(changed to std maruti ones today))

Mileage for one, is the biggest factor against it. Colour being the 2nd. Sell, it.

Offset : -5
CtrHole : 60.2/67.1

Suggest u sell it!! i doubt u'll get another offer like that. Besides the auto Esteem is a better choice anyday. But the auto Esteem requring clutch work at 34K?? Make sure everything is well with the gearbox..
