@akshay1234: Please dont test drive a Cedia. coz if you do you will have to increase your budget and buy it.

A used Cedia is the best option, resale is aweful and you can get a great car at a great price. I recently got a 1.5 year old chicago white for 5lac here in Delhi.

Also check if Abix's modified cedia is still up for sale here in delhi or not. If it is I would say grab it, will save you time and money to modify it. Just that you will have to get it transferreed to Mumbai!

A used Civic will also be a great deal.

All the best.

yes, Cedia has this bad habit of growing on you. your addiction to cars will grow. It also is a good car to yield to all the mods you are thinking of. As Gaurav pointed out the used car rate for a cedia is very very less.

Akshay - A used Civic or a used Cedia is going to be your best choice based on your parameters. An Accord I wouldn't choose for mods or sporty driving.

If you can increase the budget, the new version of the Cedia looks to be bang on!

Here are a couple of questions:
- Is this car going to be a family car, or only your car?
- Will this car be an addition to your current cars?

I ask this because it would help judge the other factors of the car, such as other uses and importance of reliability and time spent on fine tuning.

Here are my suggestions:
- Ignore the Accord. Poor high speed stability, unless you get the 2001-03 Accord for 3.5 and mod it up nicely.
- Similarly ignore the Camry. It is like driving a boat!
- Civic is a nice option, but not sure about high speeds.
- Cedia is a nice option as well. I don't think there should be problems modifying it.
- Fiesta S is the car to buy, which can support basic mods and will be reliable too.

However, if you want a car that can impress people owning Porsches and BMWs and Audis, then here is my suggestion.
- Mondeo: You will get one cheap, is solid fun to drive, looks amazing, fully loaded, can be modified though parts may need to be imported, is safe, and very stable at speed. Last time I checked, Quickdraw was looking at selling off his nicely done up Mondeo. Do check it out.
Also, even though maintainance will be more than Hondas, the cheaper cost of buying will definitely help you out in the future.
- 2001-03 Accord: The first gen. Very understated, superb to drive, powerful, and IMO the most comfortable and stable of all accords sold in India. Can be got cheap, will run for miles, and can be done up well.
- Mitsubishi Cedia - I am surprised you say that this car doesn't have mod potential. Any reason for that?

Phew... totally floored by bmwrockz post

Jokes apart, to be frank I am too into a bit confusion now a days and requirements are too a bit similar of mine. Somehow I find a civic will be most suitable for your requirements wherein it is a beauty of it's own and can be seriously modded as well due to heavenly available mods for Honda engines.

Try to fork out a used less mileage Civic.

yup so i guess ill take a look at those 2. but wont the accord improve if i get a coilover set on it? i think it would. but a segment smaller than the accord will probably be easier to manage.

yes it will. in any case the other 2 are due for replacement sometime next year.

i want a segment higher than the fiesta. i find it a bit small. otherwise i wouldve picked this one up.

both the mondeo and the first gen accord are too old for my liking. also i dont wanna pick up a pre modded car. no1 knows how its been used. i want a good condition used car.

well ive heard that the cedia engine dosent give big gains on mods like turbocharging, id love to be proved wrong.

Its not only the suspension, the car is also bigger and heavier and you don't need either of those especially if you intend to modify the car. Plus, both the Civic & the Cedia have much more of a sporty image that would suit you rather than the Accord.

Cos you've not driven a car with power yet!

I would suggest a used RS. Good ones now cost 5 lakhs. Spend a lakh on the usual spares, another 2 on mods, ICE and you're set. Something to keep up with a BMW and it's pretty classy too.
