BH.

I guess he means Cold air intake with custom manifold and air filter, and FFE with custom exhaust manifold.

IIRC they don't. They will not even service the car before handing it over.
Atleast thats what they told me when I went to enquire about my Civic.

Pundits here pls advice!
2.62 L discount for a month old Corolla Altis? It's a steal if you can afford it, dont think twice. Go for it. It's is much more luxurious feeling car than a Civic except that you will miss the Civic's interiors, sportiness and driver dynamics.

Auto Terrace does provide a 6 month warranty on the car.

BTW, one of my closest friends ended up with a near identical deal. 2007 White Civic for 8.10 lakhs. I'd convinced him and his wife on an AT. Odometer reads 25,000 with full service history at Arya Honda. Single owner Bombay registered. Nice car.

Kolkata Honda AutoTerrace has a 2008 Purplish Violetish Honda Civic VMT with 20,000 kms on the odo with an asking price of Rs. 7.65 Lacs. I convinced my friend to go for it, but unfortunately, he found out that his garage is not wide enough for the Civic (car goes in, but can't open the door once inside!).

I suggested that he break down his house to make way for the Civic, but he shot down the idea and settled for an used Honda City instead.

If any T-BHP member in Kolkata is looking for an used car, run to AutoTerrace - Rs. 7.65 lacs is almost 45% depreciation for a 2 year old car (in a brilliant condition apparently).

Have TD`ed the said the car. If its the same one that is registered to
Chandrani Enterprises or similar, basically the Pinnacle Honda people
themselves, then its not a good buy. It was filthy, and throttle
response was very weak.

I think it was a demo car too. So may have been hyper revved and driven with disdain.

I dunno if they have cleaned it up and repaired it and all that.

Thanks Mobike008!

Heart went with Civic and Mind with Altis. Went with my wife so that she can hammer sense in me if required, even she was not so enthused and however heart overruled the head!
Finally on the 18th Aug got a Misty Violet Civic (V model) Sep -2007 / 27 K KM at 8.2L (incl Dr. Cars fees)

Have had a made trips to Khandala and to Srisailam in last three weeks and can say Heart (Civic) rules and for a reason!

Thanks for your kind response.

Hey, congratulations Sailor! I'm glad to see your patience finally paid off and you got your dream car. For what it's worth, CarWale rates and excellent condition Sept. '07 Civic V M/T in Hyderabad at 8.185 lacs, so you've surely gotten a great deal.

Welcome to the club, too!

Great going man! I've had my new Civic for nearly thrice as many days and it's just crossed 1300 km today. Not a single out-of-town ride so far :(.

And yes, you're absolutely right about heart vs. head in the Civic's case.

Regards,
spadix

My best friend - an otherwise nonbeliever in used cars - was completely bowled over by my Civic. Result?

Got my *pre-worshipped* Honda Civic-02092010374.jpg

The white example in the background is mine. His deal : July 2007 build, single owner, Mumbai registered, S-AT with 25,000 kms on the clock. Full service history from Arya Honda. His wife was going to be the primary driver, hence I recommended the 5 speed automatic. Closed @ 8.10 lakhs.

I probably didn't search hard enough here (in Hyderabad). Sailor's recent acquisition (we both started the search at roughly the same time) is probably proof of this.

You said it. Funny how this car came in at the exact same price (and model year) as mine. What are the chances of two friends ending up with near identical deals + cars in the used market? God has his ways....

Always a next time, Spadix. Not that you can go wrong with new, yet used offers so much more value with the modern cars of today.

Congrats to your friend for the Civic. Seems to be in great condition.

Oh and for your other friend, check carwale, quite a few V6's there.

And i love the way these big engines cars depreciate, I heard of a less than a year old Superb 3.6 for 22l. That would be a steal.
