There is one Esteem 2004 Limited Edition Model of my friend which has been driven ~60K. He has kept it in Pristine condition ( as what i have seen it personally many times ). he is asking for 2L. There is a bit modification he has done. Put K&N, FFE and a little bit here and there. i sat on it and it did 165kph in 3rd gear.huhhhhh. It was awesome. But the main thing is that Esteem is discontinued, will the spares be a problem. I dont want to face the music later on..
No problem buddy! Esteem has easily available spares even in local markets. MGA charge around thrice the original price. The price your friend is offering is ok for a 2004 car with bit modifications. Else you can go for an accent till 2.5-2.75lacs.
Today i had asked one of my office colleague to talk to the Advantage Hyundai Dealer. i told him to talk in Kanada, since it will be more beneficial.
The dealer told the same things, as what he told me when i met him in person.
About the price he told its 3.3L. You come we will waive/discount to you.
So the idea worked :P, and now i am planning to go again and bargain hard with him.
Hope everything works fine.
I am chucking off the plan of Esteem since my friend has driven it quite a number of time in the Race Track ( the MMSC in chennai ). I know Esteem Engine is quite good, but its the the Psychological thing, thats preventing me to go for Esteem.
Anyways, nice to see that people over here are helping quite a lot. Thanks to all of you. :)
1.90 lakhs is worth giving for it,provided the car's ODO isn't being tampered.Anyway if you are interested drive the car for at-least 5 kms,hear the sounds or rattles,check out the engine sounds etc etc.
