Thanks Viper.

Saw, in all, 5 VTECs. 3 in Koramangala and 2 in Cox Town at Citizen Cars.

The ones that dealer showed us in Koramangala were in so abused condition. None had the original odometer reading. All were manipulated. Saw one with iron wheels and 1.5 Exi type wheel covers. That particular one was ripped off of it's chrome on lid, all 4 speakers, VTEC badge, exhaust finishers etc. It was such a pain to see that people can actually abuse it so much.
Denied all 3.

Then we headed off to Citizen's. The silver color VTEC he had just clicked. I suspect the odometer but the car was otherwise in well maintained condition. It's 2002 model and deal is around 5L.

My friend actually gave up the idea of a decent Vtec in bangalore after a couple of months of search & got one from chennai. But Vtecs are really rare to find. dont buy these abused ones. will be more of a trouble than pleasure. settle for a 1.5 if you do not get a good Vtec.
cheers

I was actually hurt.
I own a VTEC and I always thought that I missed giving her her due share. But looking at all these I guess mine is privileged.

I checked that one out for Esteem Lover during his hunt. My evaluation is here, unless it is another one

The one we looked up was a Feb-2002 made. And to correct myself it was light gold color with Stanley leather interior. And it has a 2 digit number.

Ajmat,

Please confirm from the above discription that the one I saw isn't what you saw too.

Thanks
