    DFSK 580

    I would be worried about something more than the engine guard in this vehicle. Especially when paying more than 6 mil.

    Adding a relay and subwoofer connection

    This is what i have done to my under-seat sub. Im no electrical expert but it is better to have an aftermarket sub wired directly to the battery as 100W is a considerable amount of power and wiring it to existing fuses will only strain the car's electrical system as it was not designed for it. Also the sub might not work to it's potential due to power restrictions when coupled with a existing fuse. The wire from the batter can go to the dash from inside as illustrated. No modification is required.

    Peugeot D8, 406, 407

    407 was made after 2004 or so. 406 and 407 are different cars from two eras 407 being the newer model. If you don’t have any experience with these vehicles I strongly advise you to do a proper search and speak to people who owns them and then make a decision to inspect. Fuel consumption is a bit on the high side but for a heavy comfortable car it’s not bad. Compatibility ? Don’t know what you mean noise ? Again not sure what you mean market price : do some research on the Sunday papers and online adds , you will get an idea on average asking prices reselling ability : depends , sometimes you might have to wait for months , sometimes a week losing a little bit on your investment parts availability : 406 and 407 have plenty of parts if you know the correct places albeit prices being a little expensive repair shops : yes there are quite a few specialized workshops for Peugeot’s Control ability : I hope you mean if the car has good control on the road then yes they feel planted to the road and handles reasonably well.

    Toyota aqua 2014/15 or Honda Fit GP5

    Overall The aqua is more fuel efficient by a good margin. It also has a very reliable Powertrain. It however has below average ground clearance. It’s not bad to drive but the Fit is in a different league. The Fit has more value for what you pay, the interior looks better, materials feel better , seats are more supportive , has better ground clearance ,depending on the model you do get things like cruise control. It is a lot faster and more engaging to drive , it is however less fuel efficient and in the SL climate the DCT gearbox clutch can give trouble (discussed over the forum)

    KIA Sorento and Sportage

    Today’s turbo diesels are much better when it comes to overtaking than petrol. More accessible power than a petrol. I drove a 2012 sportage diesel and pulling power in short bursts is really good ! I’m not sure about reliability vs petrol but economy wise it is much better than the petrol, specially in long journeys. The petrol variants will be of course less noisy and more refined , the vast majority of petrols are faster too but lacks the near instant torque the diesels have which aids in overtaking.

    2001 Accent, Elantra

    I know a couple of people who used accents in that era and they were quite reliable. Kia Rio of that era however , everyone complained. Also it is not safe to assume that the Hyundais are not thrashed , those things depends on the owner who used them. Whichever car , do a proper inspection.

    what is the best brand new car under 40 lakhs ?

    Yes. A Baleno is also another option if OP doesn’t mind that it is made in India. Ford Fiesta 1L is also a nice car to consider.

    Do dreams come true? = YES (Bought a lancer ex)

    LED Bulbs for Toyota Premio 2013

    The premio has reflector headlights and fogs right. Using LEDs on reflectors can make you see better but at the same it will be like a nightmare for oncoming drivers. LED beams have to be focused. A performance halogen will be a much better upgrade considering all factors. Nightbreakers, xtreme visions etc.

    Ford Fiesta 2015

    Don’t think the Fiesta came with a RS variant. I have used a Older model (2011) and it was a fun car with good comfort for it’s size. It was very reliable , didn’t give me any sort of trouble except replacement of front shocks at a early stage which was covered under warranty. Servicing at the agents are quite reasonable and actually not far from a regular place like auxx mixxxx. Only thing you need to be worried on Marques like this in SL is depreciation.

    Making an old morris minor convertible?

    I had a convertible and the CR states body type as convertible

    mini pajero or jimny

    My vote is for the Jimny. You see a lot more around in that era than the mini Pajero resulting in more parts and stuff. I think it’s also more capable off toad and more reliable.

    5.5 million car options?

    Compared to the axio what I have felt with the premio is the weight of the car. As you get in and drive it you feel is more planted and a nice heavy feeling of the car , a feeling which is a little close to getting in and driving a European car.

    Honda CRV vs Mithubishi Montero

    Not a fair comparison anyway since the Montero is diesel , it has a lot more torque to pull 2300KG.
