    Can 6 people ride in an allion or premio

    1.No 2.No 3.No. If you regularly travel with a family/group of 6 people maybe invest in a 7 Seater SUV.

    Peugeot 5008 vs Honda Crv Ex

    Don't have any experience with the Pug. The CRV scores on second hand market. Fuel economy on the CRV is around 5-6 KMPL in the city so I would not call it economical.

    Newest Vehicle Colour change Process at RMV

    I wonder if this applies for legal engine swaps too?

    I don't know the practicality of this but if like India started producing the Maruti800 after Suzuki discontinued that model - we could have made simple motors like that here - maybe starting off with something like the 110.

    SL Market would be happy if they kept making the 'Dolpin' with small incremental cosmetic updates - just look at the obsession with the 'Vits' and the 'Aliyan/Pramiyo'
  6. Turns out there are so many 80's cars now transplanted with Auto gear boxes... and asking for ridiculous prices 😄 

  7. Guys - how much trouble would i be asking for  with a late 80's Corolla II with a Diesel Engine?

      A friend of mine owns a petrol one from the same era. A really nice car to drive but he blowed up the engine after getting it performance tuned by a wrong guy. This car was not in perfect shape. Interior bits started to show their age. It was not taken care of by the previous owners. But all the options worked. Dunno about the diesel. But since it’s a Corolla, will run without much of an issue and any makabass would be able to fix. Or else you can swap a new engine🥳

      @alpha17 - Thanks for the info. Didn't check the particular specimen since it seems to have had a gearbox translpant. There's also this tempting looking 2 door red corolla2 (petrol) unmolested and in great shape

      @matroska 2 door version looks really cool. My friend's one was not in that much of a good shape. But the engine and gearbox felt bulletproof. We had endless fun with it by doing countless burnouts and speedings over 130+ kmph. The car felt really steady and nimble. After abusing it for around 1.5 years he wanted to tune it for more hp. The work was done by a horrible guy so ended up blowing the engine. Now he had replaced the Turbo engine from a Starlet GT. Also replaced the dashboards with a better one. Now it is better. With the diesel I dunno about the performance. But I think finding spares wouldn't be much of an issue.

  8. I'd go with the CRV too - It ticks most of the boxes and is quite a comfy ride - not to mention it has decent power and overall a good Crossover SUV.

    What is your ultimate dream car?

    Kind of difficult to pinpoint one BUT I just have this inexplicable thing for the Datsun 240Z - I know I'll never own an actual one but thankfully my father gave me a 1/18 for Christmas a few years back.

    Aqua vs Fit

    This has been discussed multiple times. Do a forum search please. Good luck.
  13. A simple google search shows that the car is manufactured in plants in Hungary India etc - the UK version probably gets manufactured in Hungary - this should be fine : no cause for concern.

    Honda GP1 Oil Leak Issue

    Read this post : Not quite sure what you mean here - BUT in the GP1's CVT box when you do accelerate while in a lower speed sometimes there is a jerk but I wouldn't call it a vibration. Get it checked at the agents Sta###rd - costs 4500/-
