Congrats Gautam! Very nice choices - both of them. What price did you pick them up for? Even I'm looking for a Civic auto

n_c congrats pal. Both the cars look clean and straight out of the showroom like dippy said. That said, how much did you pay for them. I think you owe us a story about the ANHC too.

With the kind of traffic seen in Mumbai these days, an automatic is the best. FE is not a problem really. You just need to know how to drive an AT properly.

An AT was a priority for him.

Congrats Gautam.
Good choice of vehicles.

Am curious about the ANHC story, though.

@ Ishlinea, Dippy, Superboy, Varun, Stratos, Maggie, Pancham(nice nick), VD, Sheel, Condor, Suman, KP, Nishant, Riju, Rocker, driving smartly, Amitoj, Benny, Schitre, Jaggu, Raghu, Razor ---- Thanks for the wishes fellows.

An AT was the top most priority looking at the places both me and wifey frequent.

As for the price, I got them both for around the price of an Altis MT.

And lastly,

Swale - yeah that one is going to blow everyone's mind.

This is what happens when you go the pre-worshipped route, two cars for the price of one

Congrats Gautam on the new acquisition.

Hohoho! Not just double whammy, double googly also!

I must say that this combo suits you guys much better than the lone ANHC.

Your wife will be happy cruising on the highway in her car, and you will be happy getting 43kmpl in your i10

Congrats! Do share the civic price if you can. (and how you found it)

Default How ??

Hi Gautam,

First of all let me congratulate you on your two stunning acquisitions. Absolutely amazing condition both !! But pray tell .. how on earth did you find a ' 2010 ' i10 Magna A/T for sale on the used car market ?? I would think that very few people buy an automatic and the ones who do, generally know what they want. So then why would someone sell it so soon ? Could you also tell me where you found the Civic and for what price ? My current car is now getting a bit old and so I've started looking around for a good pre-owned car and hence am very interested to know your story.
Thanks, and congratulations once again.
