By the second half of this year you could probably bargain hard and get a new LXi for your budget !

Thanks for the link joz , i did contact mandovi yesterday.. However the car is a baleno altura and exorbitantly priced at 4.5L as the insurance seems to have lapsed , not to mention that the altura is a long since discontinued car ..

Nitrous: He didn't have a choice bro but do this last minute

Mclaren: Try networking with guys working with large IT corps like Infy and Wipro. They usually have some bargains on their intranet.

Guys , finally after an entire days hunting what me and v1p3r found out is this ..

There are hardly any balenos up for sale in bangalore .. We have nearly visited every used car dealer , be it automart , classic , pretham , citizen , maruti true value etc etc .. And the market prices are bloody expensive , looks like the baleno has a brilliant resale value atleast in bangalore ..

After riding for nearly 150kms on a pulsar 150 in a day here are the developments ..

1 . One 2000 model silver colour baleno for 3.75L which happened to be told about at every dealer we went to .. So all these guys have a tie-up im guessing ..
2. Another baleno 2003 model at 4.1 (nego) .. Was excited to check out the car and it ended up an accident vehicle ..
3. The baleno altura seems to be climbing prices from every dealer , 1st i was quoted 4.5L by one , 4.6L by the other and 4.75L by the 3rd .. However since its a 2002 model and approving a loan could be difficult had to drop the idea ..

4. A 2004 baleno done 13k kms , asking price was 5.25L and we quoted 4.6L and came off .. Will be inspecting the car on saturday .. If all goes well i think this ought to be a pretty good deal .. So me praying .. What do u think guys ???

6. A couple of VXi's 2005 models all over 5.75L ..

PS : Bcoz of the loan issues now im forced to look for a car that is post 2003 .. So guys any further leads ??

Correct - it is an oligopoly - they all collude ad fix prices. I saw an Altura in free ads going for 3.25 some months ago. An Altura might be worth a look - you can bung your spare wheels and jack etc inside....also use it in lieu of a hotel room. Volvo used to race a staton wagen once in touring cars - more aerodynamic
