Yes, Type II was launched end 1999. One of my relatives has the 1.3 EXI in Maharaja Gold. Pretty good car though a 1.5 is anyday better.

The price paid is not high at all, provided it is in good shape. Try finding a decent car in the market of the above model & description & you will know.

As for 9 years old..well what does it matter ? Provided it is a looked after car and has no rusting AND please remember everyone has his or her own budget.


Cheers

Nice. Very well maintained and a good buy. She'll keep you happy for years!

BTW the dashboard cover-- came with the car or you bought it?

Personally i would discard it immediately, gives a taxi feel. But that's my opinion.

Seems to be a good buy, atleast the hardware look pretty good for a 9 yr old, and i bet you have done your homework for the software too. Hope you get to enjoy the car with no problems till u keep it with u

Sorry for the mistake

By the way , my 2002 OHC VTEC which had done 1,70,000 kms went for a good 3.2 lakhs.

EDIT :
I would suggest remove the dash cover , doesnt look pretty well except for the colour combo

and paying 1.65 for this car seems purely justified
Looks in quite a good condition.

congrats on your purchase harry and welcome to the OHC club.
get rid of that dashboard cloth as soon as possible!
by the way the price you paid is decent, not too less and not too high. A cousin of mine recently bought type 1 OHC 1.5 exi for 1.8 lacs so it seems ok. Treat her well and she would give you endless miles of happiness.
