Congratulations on your buy, a very good deal IMO, especially with so few kms on the odo.
The Civic has always been a favorite of mine. Looking forward to those suspension mods - the scraping scares me off from buying one every time.

it is best outsourced to fellow citizens around (CPO-Car Process Outsourcing).They do the research, buy it after a bargain, pay the tax, run-in, maintain and then sell it at a discount to potential customers like me."
LOL well we have another example of CPO here.
Congratulations GTO. White Civic looks stunning! day before i had asked in DYNO thread "news about Civic" and here I find a very detailed report.
I too got a '08 Corolla A/T for 7.5l. And yeah, a Civic in white is heaven.
Whoa! You got an even better deal than I did!! How many kms? Pictures?

So a new car at around 7/8 lacs at a much lesser interest rate is not that bad a deal either.
Even with the high interest rates, this car would work out substantially cheaper than a new Civic.
Also, if due to the high interest rates one wants to lower his budget, I have compiled an excellent list of 6 lakh rupee enthusiast cars here.

Speak to Tejas Shah (Broker) on 98190.68141. Young chap, very hard-working with an ability to screen the entire market for good cars. He showed me the most cars in that 1 month timeframe.

Rajiv, I've always been on top of the *used car movement* on Team-BHP. The current gen of modern cars are good for 1.5 - 2.5 lakh kms easy. The wide choice of cars, and frequent release of new models, makes its easy for value seekers like us to find great cars at reasonable prices. I wouldn't consider any new car within the 8 - 10 lakh rupee range as an upgrade from my OHC Vtec. That car was F-A-S-T.
Anytime you need advice on a search, just open up a "What car?" thread.

LOL, so true. Got the Vtec for 7, sold for exactly 50% of that price after 73,000 kms, put another 4.5 lakhs (equivalent of an Indica TDi) and got the Civic.
Fun to drive cars for relatively little money.

Do you know Team-BHPians? The first reply on the thread would have said "Hey, these aren't bumpers from the facelift version. It's an older car".
