Hi GTO,

I luv those SWBs but dont have much idea on them. Can you please give me info on them like where can I get their tech data, where can I test drive one, etc etc.
================================================== ========

My top 5 may disappoint a lot but guys thats my choice. No hard feelings

1. Maruti 800 as thats the car that brought in auto revolution in our country. Also my first car but today believe me I wont buy one today. I would love a zen more for its performance.
2. Mahindra Scorpio as its the first affordable indigenious SUV. One perfect for Indian roads and dangerous traffic.
3. Palio 1.6 as its a babe to drive.
4. City VTec (Never driven one but it goes gr8 while it runs)
5--. Innova as a gr8 family carrier.
5. Skoda Octavia TDi as its one tough, classy, FE car.
5++. Considering road conditions and luxury I would love to drive a Nissan X-Trail (Its a good value for money even if its costlier than other 4X4s.)

Is it really the quickest ?? What about RS ! and then the debate about Corolla vs. Civic is anyway on w.r.t quickness!

I am not talking of some of the more expensive cars which i am not even aware of.

The Fury was 175cc. A great bike to ride, but not to own!
