I do not know where did my previous post vanish, but, hey Sid, congrats on moving from Twing-o-Twang to Klitter-O-Klatter. As you rightly wrote, there are plenty of bells and whistles to catch the glances. She will keep you safe, your new mistress from Italia.

The numbers (in RS.):

Punto emotion pack 1.3 diesel
  • ex showroom price, Delhi = 6,30,594
  • add insurance = 18,599
  • add registration charges = 25,524
  • add number plate = 375
  • add smart card = 370
  • add MCD tax = 4,000
  • add extended warranty = 5,000
  • add basic accessories kit = 2,250
  • total on road price = 6,86,711
Now for the scheme
  • total on road price = 6,86,711
  • less basic accessories kit = 2,500
  • less extended warranty = 5,000
  • less insurance = 18,599
  • less number plate = 375
  • less 24X 7 roadside assistance (not mentioned on price list) = 6,000
  • total I have to pay = 6,54,237

Finance in rupees:
  • OTR to pay: 6,54,237
  • Loan amount= 5,50,000
  • Tenure: 60 months, that is 5 years till 2015
  • EMI approx=11,330 @ 9 percent from SBI
  • Down payment= 6,54,237 minus 5,50,000= 1,04,237 plus 11,330
  • total down payment=1,15,567
All paperwork was handled by my dad.

Given my poor finance and mathematical knowledge, I hope I have put these figures in a correct manner.

Accessories to be fitted:
  • heavy duty rubber mats=500
  • dicky rubber mat=250
  • perfume=150
  • custom number plate= FOC from utsav, thanks to a friend
  • nothing else.
Number expected: DL ** ** 7007

Why I needed a car for myself:

Last December 2,2009, when I visited urmil motors, I met Mr. Neeraj, who impressed me with his knowledge about Fiat products. Quite a refreshing change from he usual Tata-Fiat dealerships.

That time the facility was under construction and was impressed with the huge workshop and pretty competent staff handling the cars. The Fiat section has different staff. Many personal joined from a Honda dealership here.

Baaton baaton mein I committed him that I will be purchasing from this showroom, but did not gave a date.

And when my bro called me up and told that he is shifting to greater Noida due to work related issues, I was surprised, yet did not say anything to him. All I knew was that the Santro was gone for good from my hands, he will be using it now almost full time.

And I was correct. But that time I had very restricted budget, about 1,50,000 only. So I had very limited time and I started searching for a decent used car.

Due to my hectic work, while everyone was getting crazy about auto expo (I did not attend it), I was working and still trying to get just enough time to search for the car.

Then I got a call from a friend-cum-neighbour that he plans to go abroad and that he is interested in selling his orange siena 1.6, done about 32,000 km for asking price of below 1,00,000. I had taken many rides and knew that for a 7 year old car, it is amazingly well maintained and just required minor work. If I bought it in a hurry, it would be one of a kind car here.

An orange siena 1.6 which I rarely get to see on Indian roads, could have been mine but my mind was googling that should I? Or should I not?

I started the discussion and was trying to get the asking price lowered, as the car is a rare breed and the resale value is just that-dismal. I even asked here that should I go for it or not? I did get some replies of yes and no but it still was a 50-50 chance.

But why didn't I go for it?

Don't believe its the same guy who started this thread:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...oked-fiat.html (Is there a big quality lapse at Fiat's Ranjangaon plant that is overlooked by Fiat?)

... and had turned out to be one of the more violent threads on Team BHP forum
