Default New Suzuki Sx4 from Haryana to Mumbai.

I am from Mumbai. I have been planning to buy a new Sx4 from Haryana for obvious reasons of saving octroi and difference of road tax, a good difference of Rs. 80,000. Finally after lots research and considering the pirce.

My concern is getting it driven all the way from Haryana to Mumbai. What all do i need to watchout and what care i need to take while getting the new car driven down all the way from Haryana to Mumbai, as its is a new engine, as it would be done by some driver? What RPM, and what speed is to be maintained? Apart from that what do i need to instruct the drivers to take care of???

Please all you inputs would be of great help.

Check the option of transfer through train as it is cheaper. Getting on a truck would not be a good option.

I would not transport it via a truck or train. Too Damage Prone !!

Better to have a reasonable driver drive it. Gurgaon - Udaipur - Ahemdabad - Mumbai. A long route but very good roads.

One of my friends got transferred to Mumbai from Delhi. Every fortnight or so, he asks his friends to courier him a blank petrol receipt from a Delhi bunk. Fills it up showing a recent date.

Whenever he has been pulled up, he shows that receipt to the cops and claims that he is a tourist/ moved just a week or so back. Working till now.

I am also driving out of state car in Karnataka for more than 3 years. I faced no problem yet so far. Even in Bangalore I can see quite a few SUV, Luxury cars bearing number from Haryana.

And yes, Do not ever think about transporting car through train or truck. Octroai and RTO guys will catch you right in the station of Octroi check post and your have to pay full difference amount before you get your own vehicle .
Even in Mumbai they did not spare my brother's LML Vespa Select 4 years old scooter where transported it through train.

It is not at all problem driving new car on highway, but do check speed.

the RTO is getting very strict these days in mumbai...they are keeping checks even on cars registered at navi mumbai & thane (outside octroi limits)..u would be very often be stopped at naka bandi's while driving the HR registered vehicle..so accordingly take your call..

Maharashtra registration = Peace of mind

Why dont you consider getting the car registered in Daman. You can buy the car from Vitesse Vapi. Distance between Vapi & Mumbai is max 180 kms. However as on date the Mumbai Ahmedabad highway is quite painful to drive because of the huge potholes.

Good luck with driving an out-state car in Mumbai, the RTO / tax officials clamp down on them ever so often. In the worst of cases, I have seen cars being seized on the spot. I would not recommend this unless you plan to stay in Mumbai only temporarily.

For information on running-in, check the relevant article from the Advice section.

If they are blank bills, why dint your friend get the whole booklet from the petrol pump ?

akshladha,
I guess beating the Octroi rules in Bombay will be tough on your part to try and evade the cops. All said and done, you'll stop enjoying the ride since most of the time your eyes would be on the lookout for cops

Guys my concern is not about getting it here or out-side state registeration. We have been using north India registered cars since last 11 years without much hassels. But i I have reaised one thing, we get our cars driven down all the way from haryana to mumbai thru drivers. But due to the long highway drive of 1300Kms, the drives race the new engines without being concern about the chipping off of the new pistons. Result - Lower mileage. Our zens never gave us an avg above 10Kpl and cities some where around 8Kpl. Recently boought a civic, which just manages 6-7Kpl.

Are there any measures that i can take so that the drives dont race thm beyond 2500 RPM, as it been said that for frist 1000 Kms, the engines shldnt go beyond 2500 RPM? Could this be one of the reason of our cars giving lesser mileage???

I don't know about the registration etc. but as long as a new vehicle is driven within the running-in limits, there is no problem in hitting the highway. One should not drive at constant speeds but then our highway traffic will ensure variable speeds and enough gear shifting.

My Safari was driven from Chennai to Hyderabad to Bangalore and back to Chennai in a span of 3 days. Delivery was on a Wednesday evening, the trip started on Friday morning.

By blank, I think he meant with date and vehicle number not filled in.

you mean to say even being a new engine, it wouldn'e be an issue driving it at high RPMs? I remember, my cousin bought a new 5 series, he didnt cross 2500 RPM mark till he crossed 1000Kms.

Default Dilemma on where to buy from - Haryana or Mumbai

hey guys, congrats to the mods for running a fantastic website..

i m planning to buy VW Vento Petrol Trendline (cheapest variant). Now i m in 2 minds on the question of where to buy it from. The car on road price in Mumbai is 8.15 and in its almost 40K cheaper in Gurgaon, which is my home town. If the registration & insurance ll be on Haryana number & god forbids my car gets stolen or meets with an accident in Mumbai, are there any chances of complications arising while lodging FIR or claiming insurance ?

The dealer says its not an issue at all but i want to be assured if that's the case or does someone here have a different experience to share ?

Also, is anyone familiar of something called visitor pass using which you could drive in Mumbai without registering in Mumbai ? A frnd mentioned that it costs arnd Rs. 3000.
