Default which car...

hey guys ...
after a long time and after lots of discussions....
here is my final shortlist -
a merc PRE OWNED - e220 cdi done 11k km

or
i sell off my nexia
and get a skoda diesel with alloys and a chip - anyone have one... how is it
along with an small diesel car - indigo or accent viva

pl tell me which one to go for....

im lookin around for a decent w124 e250 D done low mileage which if i can lay my hands on will be better than the accent viva or indigo

cheers

if u afford to maintain the e220 cdi, go for it!!!!!!!!!!(how much u getting it for?,it is gonna replace which car??)

dont think u will have fat maintance bills for the e250(how much?? which car is it gonna replace?)

so both the mercs make a good choice

If im not mistaked ur planning to replace the ikon and nexia.
Am i right lambo?/

Merc e220 cdi is a real good option,provided u can maintain it from time to time,as aadix said.
Skoda tdi - VFM,excellent car and if you planning to chip it,worth it.Beautiful machine.
Accent crdi - Again good VFM,but not recommended after the above 2 options.
Indigo - Not recommended again after considering the first 3 options.

So that leaves us with the e220 cdi or the Skoda tdi.
If u plan to chip the tdi,go for it.
If u can maintain an elephant like e220 cdi,Skoda does not come into the picture at all.Dammit,Its a Merc afterall.

Cya.

hey guys
im checkin out the e220 today...
its comin at 4
im gettin it for 33 but after bargainin it will be down to 31 hopefully....
im gonna sell the ikon off most probably not exactly sure...
my other car is still to be decided in about a month..

if i dont like the merc its gonna be a chipped octavia diesel and a accent viva crdi or something...

if i get the merc , the other car will be either indica dls or indigo as i already have the palio 1.6 so my priorities are different - i want to use palio as a weekend car only.....

pls advise...
any news on getz crdi

what do u guys think about a used scorpio done 12700 km fully loaded for 5.6 laks instead of indigo

hey lambo
go for the scorpio instead of the indigo
the indigo is very noisy
my friend just got a pre owned c200 cdi from sanghi motors for 20lakhs . we also saw a e220cdi for 33lakhs white and was a very neat car . are u going for the same one .

hey lambo
the c200 cdi is good but the rear seat is very cramped up when the car is fully loaded.
if u looking for a pre owned merc get it from an authorised dealer as they give u warranty and a couple of services free which cost a lot .
