Unhappy

Guys,

We have to decide a lot of things when we go to buy a car. As far as i can see here the majority of us love to drive but have to make do with cars not our style !!

And sometimes it happens vice-versa ...we are out to buy a economiser and suddenly when we see a car all hell breaks loose and we come back with what we never expected to buy!!

I think this must have happened to all of us at some point or the other .. the heart over ruling the head and vice versa..

I know there are a lot of factors that come into play here but what i want to know is simple.....what do you follow when u buy a car ?

cheers

I have voted for the first option but i guess its a combination of both. It should appeal to the heart first but the head needs to approve it too.
I could never buy a car though that makes good practical sense but I dont like it - for e.g. I didnt even consider the santro and indica when i was looking for a hatchback.

It's about 70% heart and 30% head for me. Isn't it reflected by the car i drive?

well it used to be my heart but now i have begun using head instead
for eg - the e270 cdi
my dads heart went out for the car but my head chose the cdi...
but the other cars like the palio, accord , corolla etc have all been heart but now with rising prices its become mostly my head and a sudden love 4 diesels
