Suggest you spend some time here in Bangalore before you pick up any imported car. Going by the traffic condition nowadays, you may pick up some Indian hatch bach with auto box. Bringing in what you have there will give you only enough amount of frustration.

Nitrous, he means a Mazda 6.

Caliatenza, i dont think bringing ur car makes much sense at all.... as Rudra said, hang around a bit and then decide what you wanna pick up in bangalore.

yup i have to agree with rehan..much better to leave your car or sell it if no one is going to be using it and buy something here..for autos depending on how much you might want to spend..look for a used C class..you can get it around 20k USD i think

cheers

yeah i'll prolly leave my 6 here. I was thinking to pick up maybe a japanese sports coupe or sports car in bangalore..i might as well cause i'll be there for some time. Driving a real econobox doesn't make me happy much, lol. I can learn stick, thats no problem...but yeah i'll prolly start off with a 2 wheeler or somethin in teh beginning, we'll see. Any dealers for imported cars i should check out?

what sort of a coupe are you looking for..what would be your budget? celica kinds? miata kinds? get the accord coupe imported if you can, that would be awesome..i dont know if you get the accord coupe in japan, but if you do , that would be pretty nice..

yes thats a good point i forgot to mention

but man there has to be a way..cant we lobby against this stupid rule? has to be something we can do?

what if you know some embassy guys really well..ask them to import it..when they have embassy auction cant commoners buy those machines? if so..have your friend bring it in, put it on auction after a year and thats it..for that 1 year..he can hand you the keys
i know its not possible..i wish it was...

yeah the accord coupe is US only...same with my Mazda6s. Um, i was prolly looking at a few japanese cars..maybe a Integra Type R, Civic Type R, Toyota MR2...Supra...iono, whatever i can get for a good price. I kinda want maybe a Integra or Civic Type R cause i've always wanted those..lol.
