Technocrat : Hyundai i20
Jaggu : Used Mahindra

LOL finney, I do not think I can ever have a sedan as my primary car now, I have been spoiled by 4x4.
So after 2.5 more years, I am hoping there is a sub 15L Korean/Japanese diesel power 4x4.

Nice thread it is. FInally we can see all the MODS/Distinguished/Seniors in one thread. How good it would have been if their post was accompanied with a photo of them or a section in the forum/rules section where all the MODS pic is pasted. Nice thread.

Sahil : Q7 or Cayenne
There are almost same number of votes for me to get the Cayanne as there are for you to get the 530d. So why don't you contribute for my downpayment too Or i'll make the deal easier, my "Next car" thread has Fortuner listed so just help pay the difference between the Toyota and Porsche

It's amazing how true some observations here are, honestly I would love a Cayanne but i'll have to settle for a Fortuner for now it seems. Although more than the Cayanne, its the Range Rover the exact same one at the autocar show that has caught my fancy. White with black tints and white leather interiors riding on yummy alloys. If only the price tag was much much lower !

I hope Tata gets the RR's assembled here !

Are you serious? I can't imagine Arka driving a full blown 4x4 SUV. Somehow, my prediction is that he'll stick to the light + basic offroader mantra. A Mahindra Thar perhaps?

Nice. Have him check out Jeremy's review of the CSL. Bet his purchase will be preponed from status "sometime later" to "want ASAP"!

GTO, so we guessed right. It goes without saying that the 530D would/should be Peted.
