As most people reason out with me (auto guys/vegetable vendors/real estate agents etc.) "You see saar, you are from IT", (the meaning is you earn dollars and are generally DINK or DISK, money is of no value to you etc.)

And the bad part is that GoK also seems to think so

You see for maintaining best road infrastructure for India's Silicon-valley , we need to collect that much amount of road-tax for Bangalore .

You can't match the B'lore-road-infrastructure any where in India

Potholes ARE infrastructure. Have a good look at the dictionary. The quote below will make your job easier.

INFRA, Latin. Below, under, beneath, underneath. The opposite of supra,
above. Thus we say primo gradu est supra, pater, mater; infra, filius,
filia. In the first degree of kindred in the ascending line; above, is the
father and the mother; below, in the descending line, the son and daughter.
Inst. 3, 6, l.
2. In another, sense, this word signifies within; as, infra corpus
comitatus, within the body of the county; infra proesidia, within the
guards.
3. It also signifies during; as infra furorem during the madness.

Default alloys for Vista

i was quoted Rs 19360 and Rs 17100 for a set of 5 Aura alloys 14" / 5.5 with chrome and silver finish respectively in Bangalore.

Fixing and wheel balancing extra Rs 500

the guy will not take steel wheels.

Is the prices quoted are Ok ?

Cost of spares aside, do you honestly believe that Tata service is better then Skoda?

Concorde quoted RS 18000/ for alloys. i forgot to ask whether it is for 4 or 5 wheels.

G and H series are 19360 and E series 17100
