Time to say good bye.
Like all good things come to an end.. it was time to say good bye to my blue baby! Time had come for her to bring a smile for a new owner.
So, in the process of finalizing a new car, got my Brio evaluated in a couple of places including Honda Terrace. During the process, got to know about cars24.com from a friend who had recently sold his swift to them.
Got on to the website, booked an appointment, went to their office. They evaluated the car, took a test drive, checked all the papers and came up with a quote which was slightly better that the Honda Auto terrace guys. I told them, that I wasn't in a hurry, and that they can contact me if they can better the quote.
They did call me the next day, offered me a better price, had a couple of negotiation calls the following days and finalized on the price, which now was substantially better than the Honda guys.
Went to their office on the day of hand over with all original docs, duplicate keys etc, finished the paper works and handed them over the keys after they transferred the amount to my account. The entire process took about 2 hours.
Was feeling very nostalgic while parting with her. All the sweet memories came flashing back..
The initial when I got her in Gurgaon.. Moving to Bangalore.. Going through the re-registration process etc.. She had been by my side through my major life events, and they were all happy memories.
It was a mixed feeling, I was feeling sad even though I was moving towards getting a new car, but the thought that I was letting her go was heart breaking. Leaving you guys with a couple of parting shots.
The car has been rock solid throughout my ownership of little less than 4 years, no rattles or any issues whatsoever. I keep consoling myself that the next owner would be extremely delighted... BTW
, completely forgot.. I booked a CITY CVT and is going to come home today. I will start a new ownership thread on that.
Till then guys, cheers!
