Here is a link to the web site of "Jayem Auto"-
Jayem Automotives - Jayem Media

It appears that the web site is not very user friendly and is somewhat complicated.

The car and the website remind me of Sipani Automobiles.

Here Goes My List:

1. HM Ambassador: It is still the ubiquitous symbol of motoring for millions. Every one must have traveled at least once in an amby.

2. Mahindra CJ : Timeless Classics that rule the unexplored wilder side of our great country. Sad that they dont make them anymore.

3. Maruti 800: "Changed the way India Drives". Brought Motoring to the Masses. Coined new words in Automobile Scene Expansive Service Network, Quality, Efficiency, reliability.

4. Nano: Proud to say that it is a Truely Indian Automotive Ingenuity at its best. Respect Tata's resolve with this project. Would love to see the car do good sales it really deserves.

5. Daewoo Matiz: Best looking Tall boy by far. (12 years back) still looks nice. Space Refinement Comfort, Practicality only let down by the Manufacturer. If it only had a Maruti Badge. :(

My top 5 Indian cars (which are in my budget).

1. First Gen Maruti Zen ( I still remember those days when I was in school and there one of my friend used to come in a Zen and I considered him to be rich as we had Maruti 800 that time; didn't knew anything about specs and prices). ZEN was in fact a luxury some 10-12 years back.

2. Honda CR-V (A car worth drooling and could be in my garage if I have the money and it has a diesel mill)

3. Honda City i-VTEC (My current ride and the best Honda City model till date IMO).

4. Maruti WagonR (The rough and tough city mini SUV hatch).

5. TATA Safari (I respect this car a lot.)

IMO the top 5 Indian car should be

1. Maruti 800 (Revolution when it was launched)

2. Maruti Swift DDiS (Changed the perception on Diesel cars)

3. Mahindra Bolero (Perfect for our road conditions)

4. Hyundai i10 (An Ideal family petrol hatch)

5. Tata Indica (No matter how much i hate it, it still does make sense for the majority of Indians)

My revised list (not in any order) :

# Not in my budget ones -

1) Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4
2) Jaguar XJL
3) Range Rover Evoque
4) Audi A6
5) Rolls Royce Ghost

(I would have loved to include Maserati Quattroporte & Hummer H3, but I guess they dont have dealerships here, so they are not "indian" cars!)

# In my budget ones -

1) Mahindra Scorpio mHawk
2) Hyundai Santa Fe
3) Fiat Punto 90 hp
4) Fiat Linea T-Jet
5) Chevrolet Cruze

(I am a diesel fan. T-Jet is the only petrol I will ever like to drive in this range.)

Top 5 "Indian Cars"
1) Safari
2) Bolero
3) Indica/Vista
4) Indigo/Manza
5) Scorpio

Suzuki Swift (Maruti 1000 in India) was an international model, very less chance it came "like" Mayura 1000.
