Picked a M800
Hunt for a diesel car within my budget ended up with a known M800. None of the diesel cars I came across satisfied my heart, either crossed 100k km or not maintained well or over priced (or out of my budget) Finally one of our family friend agreed to sell his M800 to us.
Odo: 68k (genuine)
Insurance: Comp till May 2012
Lovato LPG kit, basic Pioneer HU with front speakers (he had oval speakers in the rear which was removed during LPG tank fitment), front bull bar (or what so ever we call it as), remote lock (don't remember the brand)
Condition of vehicle:
Overall it is in good condition with minor dents and scratches. I remember there was a long scratch on the passenger side door. Engine was good (I mentioned "WAS GOOD" since I haven't driven the vehicle recently) 2 tyres were in good condition and 2 in average condition with a useless spare wheel. The Deal
My dad's friend owns a Dzire LDi (2008) and M800 (2000) as his second car, mostly used by his wife for past 3 years. Called him today morning to wish for his birthday. After some regular chats I said I have taken Honda City a month back he said he is looking to exchange his M800 for either i10 or K10. Asked him if he could sell his M800 to me and without a second thought he said "dear, if you want the car, take it." I don't want to finalise the deal before consulting my dad. I called him and explained the whole story and he gave me a 'green signal'. Asked him to speak to his friend as I don't want to bargain with him directly. I told my dad finalise the deal for anything less than 75k and he did for 70k
No inspection, no TD, no history verification. Finally the baby is in our shed this evening. Yet to pay him but got RC and other documents except the transfer documents.
Sorry guys, no pictures until I go to my home town (I hope atleast for next 2months no plan to visit) Will start the ownership thread once I drive her.
PS: mods, please help me renaming this thread.
