Ok, finally saw your photo in this link. You are tall and you have a chubby face, enough to generate reasonable confusion about your age. No cop would want to stop you for underage driving and find himself disproved...

lol samurai .. i have a better pic of my self with my accord really
guys i have to decide by today so some help
my dad is now PLANNING to replace it (and hopefully it will happen too)
here is what i have -
1. accent GLE - with alloys an all
2. baleno lxi - with alloys and all
3. optra 1.6base if it comes with a deck
4. city exi with a deck only
5. ikon - but i dont want one but my dad has given ours to someone to use for a few months and if it comes back in bad condition hes selling it off

any other suggestion welcome
optra is too expensive but if it costs around 12k more then a city with an equally good deck then i will go for it in mica with beige interiors or black with black interiors

samurai, i started when i was 15 with my dad's blessings esp since he had already shown me how to change a tyre, spark plugs and the fan belt of our premier padmini by then. only i had to have him or his driver with me till i was 17.

NHC if you are looking at resale, baleno for VFM, optra for VFM is you can strech it. between the baleno and optra the optra is more modern the baleno has better VFM.

thinking seriously about optra now
will go check it out soon
i think optra 1.6 will have good resale and an average of 8.5 kmpl and its pretty big and comfortable too... almost perfect for my needs and the best part is the 2 years/20000km service holiday
will k an n filters make my engine warranty void?

if you get the city get the CVT (if your budget affords it). the city will have better resale than the optra. the optra makes sense if you need to seat 5 adults.

optra: more space
city CVT: auto box. the perfect city car. i should know both my nephew and niece have one and i love to borrow it. my nephew being younger loves my RS so on occasion we trade.

well unless i get a low used car i guess it is going to be the city manual
my dads friend is buying the CVT and i dont like the interior.
it looks good in black but needs better fabric maybe alloys from outside lets see.
but a good deck is a must
i wanted optra..
will decide once4 the E3 verion is out... until then keep my nexia
any guys thanx for all your help and keep the replies coming cause i have another few days to make up my mind

Hey, lambo. Did you manage to get rid of the Nexia? If yes, then how much? BTW, i'd suggest the Baleno!
