These pictures were probably taken with a phone camera, hence this barrel distortion. Wonky rear wheel means the rear axle or the axle mount is not in right position (read alignment). In that case one can expect some damage/ twist in body alignment also. In this case I don't see that. Unless the whole rear part of the body is new.

Car looks like in good shape except for the tyres.

7.3 for a second hand VTEC id kind of steep...
Lambo, Read the opening post again. The asking price of the Vtec is not 7.3 lacs, but 5.75 lacs.

What he is talking about is the loan amount and how much the interest eventually adds up to.

the tyres and all seem in perfect shape and all. taken pics with 7610 so not clear hands were moving cuz i was kinda exited. anyways i have to call the dealer soon and i am gonna give him price of rs. 5.25 or 5.50 laks as 5.75 is way too high. it is a 2 year old car now. i have seen honda city 1.5 for around 4 laks. lets see then how it goes. if i buy outright its a good deal. on loan it does not seem right. also i lose my good chances of getting a new CIVIC or OCTI RS lets see. i know all of u are vtec fans i love it too. but no way on earth that car is worth 5.75 its way too high. the beige vtec i was gonna buy was 2002 , 5600 kms done that went for 5.25 so not practical to pay so much just for the black color. i do have a garage and can paint the car whtever i want in 7 days lol. lets see

i think that interest rates are for New Cars ,...
Second hand / used car interest rates are pretty high even in Hyd ...
the cheapest is ICICI at 15% ....
