Dear SPEEDY_RACER,

You have still not quoted the price of the safari, is is just an attempt to making it a prolonged wait to know the price for the readers here???

It just helps any other potential buyers to know the price of the used vehicle in/around bangalore

The Full day went here and there and finally recieved the vehicle at 3:00 P.M.

straight away walked down to known Mechanic and just had a full checkup and was happy by his comments.

later met with Alter and he was also very happy with the vehicle performance.

took the vehicle to carnation for full OIL Change. and full service.

will post the pictures once i get the vehicle tommorow.

Note: the price is less than 5 lakhs and greater than 4 Lakhs, i dont want to dispose the price.

alter thanks for the help and spending the time.

Anytime buddy.

Awaiting the pics post the service and washing.

Anyways would like to mention here that in case anyone wants to go purchasing a safari or even any other used vehicle do get hold of suresh and his friend as I have never ever seen such a sweet deal before thanks to the excellent negotiating/bargaining skills of suresh and his friend.

Make sure you go in early to concorde around 9, so that they start work on your vehicle early and hence give it proper treatment rather than a hurry burry one.

Hi All,

as promised please find the pictures of the car.

the ICE has been installed. i have changed the Head unit to Paramount DVD player, which will have all the futures and it will have 1.5 yr warrenty.

Note: Update from TASS they informed me that they need to clean the fuel injecters also.


in Picture 2 you can see two footballs, which has been sticked to cover the Bubble crack on the car.

CHANDRA is our God name on the winshield.
