Default business in dealerships

since volvo car division is owned by ford, kairali ford got the dealership in cochin and they can operate volvo and ford dealerships from same office.

but in case of sdoka and VW, VW has to put up a new dealership EVM, even though marikar was already there.

but anticipating the barnds like tata-rover launch, tata may come up with their reowned dealership "concorde-motors" in kerala

Wonder who would pay that much for a Prado. You can get a Montero 3.2 for half that with warranty, or a Prado V6 with 30 lakhs to spend on petrol.

I agree with you on this. There are few people who do spend. The montero is cheaper but not in the same league as the Prado diesel. The Prado V6 would not leave you 30 lakhs to spare but around 15 to 20 lakhs to spare. I got one and it was for more than 35 lakhs.

Don't a lot of people get the prado to replace it with lexus badging?

Maybe this is why many people people prefer the prado over the montero.

You mean the Toyota Land Cruiser 101's that had their badgeing replaced with the Lexus ones. The Prado's never had their badgeing replaced with the Lexus.
The prado is a far superior car than the Montero. The petrol version compared to the Montero is doing well.

Didn't find the M3 which was usual for any expo in tvm.

But saw R1 in action it just came in when i left,so was able to get just a glimpse and sound of its sweet exhaust

a S 320 and a modded W203 c220 with merc logo on grille and demo cars of Passat and Jetta were the ones present.rest vintage stuff i have posted in anoher thread

How do you know this particular vehicle is badged? Its not a picture from India.

Its not possible to simply change badges. Grille, headlight, hood, fender tailight etc are all different.
