Default Advice requested in buying OHC

My parents have decided to change their car and they have finalised on Honda . That is first part of the story. After finalizing the brand, they called up 2 dealers in Cochin and Cosmic Honda immediately came down to our house with the ANHC and showed them the car. On seeing the car , they felt it is too big and then decided to have a look at OHC (which is still available at some dealerships). On seeing the OHC, they felt that it should be their new car and have decided on getting the Gxi model of City Zx.They are almost on the verge of finalising the deal with peninsular Honda Cochin.

Now, the question is, can we ask for some discount for this OHC (since the ANHC is out in market) and if so, what should be the best rate that we can push for ?

PS: my parents are not willing to buy a second hand car (even though it saves them quite a money and hence the option is to get a brand New "Old Honda City"

its called the NHC and not OHC - OHC is the earlier model

also if u share the model year, mileage etc, then it would make sense to comment on the price

You are right, it is NHC. Well, we are not buying a second hand NHC. It seems some unsold NHCs are still available in the factory yard which they will get and sell. They are of the Aug 2008 lot it seems.
Hence, was wondering what discount can we ask for them ?

Its NHC not OHC. (OHC is the legendary car produced between 1998-2002/3)

Go through the thread, it will answer all your queries.

Does it make sense to buy NHC now?

IMO, its worth buying.

Better FE, Luxurious interiors, Fully Loaded!!, VFM!! (with discounts, & by seeing the price of ANHC).

I am also thinking for it.

Just go through the entire thread.

Best of luck.

Request the mods to close this thread as I found the other thread mentioned by loving very useful. Thanks to all.

Not sure about the dealer ship please check the following thread
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...vic-1-8-v.html (Peninsular Honda sells me a *new* repainted Honda Civic 1.8 V)
Not sure what happened on this as this thread is closed

If the discount is good and it is brand new(if you can measure that) then you can go ahead. It would be VFM
