hey raman,
thats really a well maintained Sera u got. There was a time when the Sera was a hot import in Bombay. Remember there were only 9 of them in Mumbai. Remember seeing the Sera in Fevicol [i think so] ad too years back.

BTW, doesnt the stock Sera produce 100 [+ or - 5] bhp?? Is your Sera stock or has it been modded to produce 120 bhp?? Cos I remember my dads friend tellin me that his Sera produced somewhere between 100-105 bhp.

Sera's retail for very less in Mumbai. The price that you are asking is quite high and used to be the asking price 2-3 years ago. And that too low mileage models.

Nicely maintained car dude.. cauz.. most of the Seras I see are so badly kept.. and one thing I observed in Seras is that the headlight reflectors and the headlights go muddy..dusty...rusty!

The link you have provided says :

coolest sera....owned by raman in india..turbo charged with pioner 2/din hd and kit...15"alloys...blue neon lights

As far as I know, Sera has a NA 1.5L engine [or am i wrong??].

Have you retro-fitted a Turbo to it or is it an engine swap??

I always liked the Sera, but getting a car like this as an automatic kinda ruins all the fun. May be good for posing though, but on this forum you need more than that.

the car does look well looked after though, which is good to see. The ones in Mumbai are a mess!!

i thought same....but sera is hell of a car even for automatic she has great stability and caliber...u can approch corners like u never thought of....she is better than lancer in driving appeal...i have driven lancer till 160 and car was all drained of power but the way sera reaches 170 is superb....automatic is nt that bad....it makes a great cruising drive and when in overdrive a enjoyable car
