Default a little confused

i am confused and need your helps..
the thing is that we have a scorpio which was too big for me and my mom for our day to day use.. so we thought of buying a small car so we bought a santro xing xs on 3rd jan 2005.. its run like 2500kms.. the thing is after 2 months i fell i need a bigger car and more powerful one and now we are planning for a baleno.. or a honda city.. the thing is i dont know what to do with the xing.. can i modify it to look cooler so i can take it out on some occassions or just sell it off ..
if i sell it how much should i ask for.. its got alloys and bridgestone tubeless tires bothj of which were changed at 1600kms so they have run about 1000kns
the total costying was
4,20,000----------> car
15,000----------> music system
30,000-----------> alloys(BSA Racing) and tubeless tyres
----------------------------------
4,65,000---------------> 2 months old.. how much should i ask for if i sell it or can i modify it...
thanks in advance

the best thing is to use the car for about six months .. and then pop it out .. baleno is better on power than the NHC ...But the nhc has more space & better mileage(not bad on power though) ..... It depends what u are looking for ?

Dude, you have two options:

1. If you need another car, keep this one since the price you get now will probably make you kill yourself - depreciation is highest immediately after sale.

2. If you dont, sell it quickly and cut losses - holding on to it for a few months more is not going to increase its value, even if selling it for less after 6 months or a year will make you FEEL that you've got a decent deal. Its just a feeling, because you would've got more had you sold it immediately.

Either way, dont waste time and money on more mods since you're not planning to hang on to the car anyway.

don't sell your car , yeah maybe if you get anything like 4 or more than that , then i think you should sell it as you will redcover some of your loss through depreciation also , check it out . and after that get a baleno and smile

dude.get the baleno you wont regret it.thats all i can say.but one more thing if you get the baleno you will have to put better rubber on it because the stock baleno tyres are too skiny so once you put broader tyres you will have a killer machine...
