Well the car if older than 3 years (which it seems) it will not only attract the regular 130% duty but some crazy penalties which could take total duty to 200% for being more than 3 years old if not then I reckon your duty outgo is atleast 130% + US1000 at most for freight and add another lac or so for all the admin/greasing etc. ALL THIS TO KEEP THE CAR I HOPE AS YOU WILL NOT RECOVER ANYTHING IF PUT IT FOR SALE! So if you still interested PM me your email id and I will give you a customs clearance guy in Mumbai as this is the best port to bring it in from.

I suppose company pays for shippment no big deal (moving household goods back to home country) unless they are giving him the car at written down value (an old practice of almost giving it free become obsolite since advent of cafeteria approach to comp). Some companies also offer to pay duties on furnishings and appliances not sure about cars as I have no experience for the same.

I agree with ajmat sell the car if it is free as the hassle/headache will not be worth it as you can never cash on the premium just buy a new Superb/Merc etc here. This from someone who moved on a TR in 1998 I could bring in a brand new 316i/A4 (lived in HongKong where cars have 60% duty without rebate on export so my old car was out of the question) figured it would be a hassle for a 316i which is not worth it. Feel the same about your Saab as well. If it were some exotic like E420 CDi or any other mainline brand I would

Freaking awesome car too! This isn't just the normal 9-3; this is the Turbo-X version!!!

2.8L V6 churning out ~280PS and stiffer springs and shocks! Really meaty exhaust note! And yes, an AWD system too.

Really love this car!

Saw this on my office parking lot today, not sure what model Saab it is, looks pretty spiffy though.
This one belongs to the Chairman of my organization !!! A pretty neat car.

Your chairman has got a pretty nice taste in cars! Pity no one else can buy new Saab's today with all the problems the company is facing.
If you don't mind me asking, is your organization an automotive organization?

Just to revive an old thread. Yesterday I happened to see a beautiful Saab convertible on the eastern express highway in Vikhroli are around 7 pm. It looked quite well maintained. Anybody know to where does it belong to?

Wish I could take pictures and post here, but I was driving with cars too close to me.
