I am not sure if the point B indirectly ensures that it is not a test drive vehicle else you can add it in your agreement. By the way, has the dealer agreed to give the above points in writing ?

get the quotes from all dealers, zero in on dealers you are comfortable with from the transaction point of view
insist on doing a PDI for the car right away
decide on which car to pick up . go with a token advance amount and THEN NEGOTIATE FURTHER and close the deal
Firstly , THX A MILLION FOLKS. I sincerely appreciate the advice and would like to gladly inform that I have managed to take the plunge.
A) Took a copy of the T-BHP PDI and inspected the car at the Showroom on 31st march.
B) Before handing over the next cheque, got the car inspected thru my trusted mechanic. Further wrote a email to them confirming that its not a test mule and I am the first owner.
C) confirmation recieved on mail that its neither accidental nor a test mule nor a second hand car.
D) Got the loan approved and took delivery on 15th April (one day before my anniversary!!!)

Final Deal - 75k off , Free parking sensors + 50% off on the Body care package. Not sure if its the best deal - but the price hike in April has surely made it SWEETER. "ZILCH" discount avaiable right now!

Initial experience :-
Since I am not used to driving an automatic, this was Heavenly. And the best part : My wife freaked out when i presented it to her as the anniversary gift (since she was blissfully unaware of the entire process).

Damn , I havent been able to lay my hands on the car post that - She simple refuses to handover the keys to me now

Will soon post pics and hopefully the initial ownership experience too (thats if I do get to own the car !)

THX again T-BHP for helping me make the right decision.
Cheers Sid

Good deal considering the new prices as well as the fact that you are assured its a clean car

I am sure the TOYOTA ownership experience will be good. Please do post some review on the buying experience in the REVIEWS section also

this is really a unique and superb way to check the condition of the car.

Can you further elaborate on it?

By the way, congrats for such a nice car.
