Hi,

Looking for a 2001/2 model.

This is for my friend.

I don't know about the entry fee. But if it is a private car, you would have no trouble using any -state registered car in Kerala without any cops bothering you. We have been using TN and GJ registered cars in Kerala for years now and we are yet to have even a single problem (touchwood). Changing the regn would mean you lose the benefit of life time tax paid by previous owner and also start paying fresh tax in Kerala (which will be on annual basis and thus more costly).
My wife is even using a TN Scooty in Kerala without any issues. But, during the short period that I used our KL scooter here in Chennai, I would have been stopped so many times by the cops that I got fed up and shipped it back.

Honda citys are expensive in this part of the world. Yes, I mean Kerala.

Prices I've seen is between 3.5 (1.3) and 5.5 (1.5Vtec). You can get something lower also if you're lucky.

Many people buy these from TN, KA, MH etc.. and re register here.

Entry tax is only applicable if the vehicle is new and less than 18 months of purchase.

In TN, it's sometimes sold for 2.7/2.8L etc.. MH, can be more cheaper. KA is not much cheap. Even DL is cheap. Saw something for 1.8L too. But regarding out of the state vehicles, make sure the papers are clear. There're plenty of GOLMAAALs happening these days.

Kerala is very expensive!!!
I saw a used 2002 1.5 done 1.4L kms, sticker price: 4.8Lacs.
I know of a doctor selling his Vtec. done below 30k kms. Asking price : 5.8L
