Hi Automotive India
I am Kabir and I am new to TAI, I joined few days back, missed out on the introduction part. Sorry for that
I own an Esteem Lx 97.
I had couple of questions in regards to lighten the steering of my car, for which I got more than couple of suggestions. Thanks to all for the same.
Below mentioned is another query/question/case, for which I didn't get any responses, perhaps my query just did not make any sense. Though I am simply not willing to go with this Idea, but I am still curious to know if something like this done.
I went to the garage yesterday that I usually go to, to get my car's doors serviced as there was some problem with them and the owner of that garage suggested me a very weird exercise.
He said that he can help me get rid of this car(My Esteem LX) as he knows someone who wants to sell his Esteem 97 Vxi for 45K but there are some problems with the HP(Some Loan clearance thing) of that 97 Esteem Vxi, due to which the car can not be transferred, so he could cut the chassis number of my car(97 Esteem LX) and fix (Weld) it to that 97 Esteem Vxi and so that car becomes my car from there on with my registration number which I have for my Esteem LX and suggested me to sell my Esteem LX to a Bhangaar Wala and take whatever he offers like 20 to 25K for my car.
So if I proceed with this kind of a procedure (Which I am not willing to) I will probably spend around 20K from my pocket and have a Esteem Vxi.
I am just very confused about this procedure as this the very first time that I have heard about such a practice, the owner of that garage said that this is a very common procedure, which they do for any completely damaged car.
I would request all of you to share your thoughts on the above subject and please let me know if these kind of exercises even exist in the car world and if someone knows about a similar case.
Apart from the above I wanted to know if anyone can suggest me how much would the rear window roller machine cost me as my car's rear window (Manual) was very very hard and my mechanic said the machine in it is damaged, for which I will have to spend 900Rs, which I think is a bit high.
I have also asked him to get the hinges fixed as the doors make really weird knocking sound, for which he said approx 1500Rs. Is it the right quotation?
Since I didn't have a choice but to get it done, so I have left my car at the garage and will be collecting the same tomorrow.
Please let me know if any one knows about the cost of that machine and the hinges
Will be looking forward to hearing from all of you.
Thanks to all in advance.
