Hi Turbanator, I was unable to PM you, as I'm not very active here. I've just moved back to India (Delhi) and I'm looking for a 525D or a 530D (in line 6). Is there a way I could ask you for advice and market information?

I do keep on changing mines very fast but thats about it - I won't have access to market availability your best & safe bet will be to try BMW Dealerships in Gurgaon / Delhi - they will definitely have some besides there are some very sweet offers going on new ones , once you shortlist few you can post these here and we all can help you in making decision .

Damn man, i saw your 5 on this forum, and i've been cursing myself for being a few months too late!! Any chance the new owner wants to sell


Any contact that could be shared in one of these showrooms and workshops? I also want to get the car checked thoroughly before finalizing the purchase (picked up some advice from the TBHP used car buying guide)

To be honest, I'm a little scared of the used car market in Delhi, company showroom or not.

If it's not asking too much (i guess it's too late for that), what do you think about:

a. http://www.carwale.com/used/cars-in-...-2013-d916837/

b. http://www.carwale.com/used/cars-in-...-2013-d951770/


Thank you so much for your great inputs!

2010-11 , 530-D should be about 20 Lac but pick only which have done less than 40 K or so , check the cars which have BSI Packages even if expiring soon , you will have an option to get warranty extended , this also assures that these are maintained properly at Dealership , you just need to check for accidental repairs if any .

I am not a big fan of car wale or similar sites which are mostly loaded with car-dealers . Perhaps start by visiting dealership at Delhi & Gurgaon . You will find better options and your purchase will be covered with warranty supported by BMW , if these guys offer something without warranty / direct deal stay away , don't buy anything which is not under warranty .

Got the part about dealerships, any contacts you could push my way?
I'm unable to find any cars for the price you've mentioned, even I was thinking on the lines of 20 or so , it's crazy that I just can't find any! Absolutely no idea where to go, will definitely go to the showrooms though, thanks for the suggestion!

Would really appreciate any leads or good contacts man, any friend who wants to sell etc..

Thanks for your input again!

Guys!

With much deliberation and discussions, booked a Q3 Premium in Utopia Blue shade.

Well I know that I might get thrashed for opting for scandalous VAG car, but drove it and the power and quattro were the deciding factors.
Thanks for all the inputs.

Cheers,
AB

For the kind of usage (1.9 Lakh km in 7 years = 2250 kms a month), i would suggest the New Fortuner.

The other choices will also be good, but down-time could be huge, especially if you are going in for pre-worshipped examples, which will severely impact daily usage.

For practicality & Reliability - New Fortuner. Since your friend has already used the Old Fortuner for 1.9 Lakh kms, he will find the New Fortuner's ride to be better than his old ride.

For Higher Status & Visibility - The other choices.

Surprisingly the most worthy contender- Endeavour is missing from this list, any particular reasons. Repeating GTO's comment on a different post,

Skoda( read Audi/ VW ) makes Ford look like Mother Teresa. Ford's reliability is good.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/what-c...ml#post4112843 (Innova replacement - Fortuner vs X1 vs Superb)

As an owner of current and past generation of X5 and briefly for Q7, new Endeavour is close to 90 % of these cars in most of the aspects. In this budget, you can pick a Brand new Titanium 3,2 and get extended warranty from FORD for 3 years. Even if something goes wrong, sell the truck after 3 years, I am sure you will lose much less than buying something old now and then spending money on maintenance + depreciation of the Germans you have mentioned.

Maintenance issues? How do the pre-worshipped examples fare from 70K-2L? I saw a good 2011 Q7 70K on the odo. Similarly saw a GL also with those stats.

What according to you is that remaining 10%?

Does the Endeavour match up to the ride comfort and long term reliability of the Fortuner (assuming 2.5k km a month)?

Difficult to answer as this will depend on the person who is going to use it. If someone is used to extreme comfort or soft surfaces there may be some disappointments besides their will be a difference in outright acceleration and performance. Better drive a brand new Endeavour and thereafter old Germans, I am more than sure your friend will pick Endeavour,

Ride comfort - Yes, long term reliability only time will tell. My colleague is using one ( Trend variant) that I bought last year which has done around 35,000 Km in around Year with Zero issues reported so far. Check this thread which has some of the nice divergent views.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post4172487 (Lexus ES 300h launched in India at Rs. 55 lakh)

Toyota does charge a large premium for reliability/stress-free service but Ford is also improving. I think many times incidents are not reported as customers find brand too strong and try to find fault within. If repairs are not expensive and parts are easily available people seldom complain. I will give you an example, I sold mine 2014 Fortuner to my cousin with ODO at less than 18000 Km, his clutch went off at 40,000 and he was Ok to get it replaced as service advisor told him that this happens to car driven in Delhi whereas this was used mostly by me in Chandigarh and my previous generation Fortuner clutch lasted over 1,00,000 Km. I have seen some other person replacing the clutch at around same mileage but they still swear by Toyota.
