Thankyou thankyou. I visited the garage in Hennur recently to see if I could meet Mr. Jacob and speak to him. He wasnt there but I was told that theres another forester that they had just finished working on, went to the backyard and lo and behold I guess I had seen your white forester Howcome youre selling it though? Assuming everything is working properly considering your clear enthusiasm with maintaining the car, why would you be looking to sell it? Unless you are fed up with Bangalore and want to drive an automatic or even worse, ride Olas?

Which garage is this, run by mr jacob. Sounds like an independent garage, do they do good work? I stay closeby. Please do let me know.

Simply not enough enthusiasm nor resources to maintain the car anymore. Been up for sale since i gave it to Jacob's garage for a full service back in August.

Ah! But what are you planning on driving after this? Honestly I feel like it is the most practical yet fun car that anyone can own. In one drive from Pune to Hyderabad the car convinced me that it was reliable, even though it already had problems it still performed flawlessly and thats the mark of a car that is reliable not one where failures dont occur, but one which still fulfills its role as transport even when faced with issues. Over and above that you get an incredibly balanced chassis with a flawless awd system, adequate power, great ride quality, low center of gravity and very good handling, excellent manners even off the road and an ergonomically sorted cabin. I feel like unless these cars become banned, or one feels the need for an automatic or not to drive on a regular basis anymore at all, this has to be the most sensible car for enthusiasts in our country.

Sorry maybe I'm just smitten by it

Your car was a darker (like a ocean blue) before the owner got it painted in white.
The blue Ishan has posted was not sold in India. That is a proper Subaru WRX blue.

Guys I have struck upon a new dilemma. I am lining everything up to transfer the car to TS registration as I will be moving back to Hyderabad very soon. I have the NOC made out to Hyderabad RTO and all the necessary insurance, rc and other forms of sale. The one thing I don't have, is an invoice. My agent is telling me that I absolutely need one. Is he incompetent, should I get another agent, or should I research ways in which to acquire the invoice? The previous owner of the car has hunted up and down but cannot find the invoice, he is more than willing to help get me one if I can explain to him exactly how to do so. So is an invoice absolutely necessary, if so how to get one made?

Do you know where was this car originally purchased from and if the dealer still exists? They should be able to give a duplicate invoice.

You can get invoice of any Forestor of the same year from the same state.

Can you please elaborate? The car was bought new and registered in Pune, then sold to the person I bought it from back in 2006 if I remember correctly, and now it is in my possession getting work done on it in Hyderabad. I myself am currently in Bangalore at the moment and have exams coming up soon. I intend to complete transfer of registration formalities when I move to Hyderabad by the end of this year if not early next year, what is the easiest way to get the invoice?

Get an duplicate invoice from a Chevy dealer in Pune for the 2004 Forester.

For that matter, a duplicate invoice from any 2004 Forester sold in MH would suffice.

Waseem.

The amount paid as octroi is explicitly mentioned in the invoice and is not taken in to account while calculating LTT.

Waseem.
