  1. Guys, How come the Alto Lapin hasn't hit the shores that much? Looks nice and the interior is pleasant. Much better than the boxy one. Also I feel like lowering it and “do some upgrading” would do wonders

      Lapin had a Turbo variant as a limited package. 

      The Lapin is more expensive than the standard Alto so that might have been one issue...I suppose the thought is that if you are going to spend that much on a Lapin they might as well go with a WagonR series car which can get some tax benefit because of the Hybrid system.

      In Japan...people go for the Lapin just for looks (especially the younger crowd) and Suzuki offers a hell of a lot of aesthetic  modifications. Some have even converted them to old American truck looking things and wood panel station wagons.

      looks classic. i doubt if it will get pedestrian safety approval in western markets due to the vertical front. I think that is why the old mini had to taper off the front grill.

      but kei cars are not designed for Western markets...they are for Japan by Japan. 

      In Japan the frontal pedestrian safety requirements are more to do with height and non forward pointy shapes and does not mandate a slant.

    Yes bro. In the Q3. Lexus comes with JBL.Actually the new lineup of Audi`s now come with B & O. But personally, I like Bose better. Bose just has that punch in bass,which is heaven. You wont regret it. ps. Try to replace the speakers with Bose as well.At least on the rear 2. Soo worth it.
  4. Hey guys! Whats the best Kei car for about 3.3m ? Its for an old lady. Dont like the wagon R. Thanks

      Thanks guys. Wbt the honda N wgn? Do we have the N one? Also I found a Mitsu EK?!

      Haven't seen the N1, N wagon is like a wagon r, 

      Same with the Ek wagon, personally I love the ek as it shares parts with the mitsu line and agent support is there, pulling power of all of the above are behind the wagon r, thus why there is a following.

      The Mira is OK - a bit under-powered but ok for an old lady. The cheapest would be the Kei Alto. 

      Hideous as it may look something like a spacia might be something the elderly prefer as it is relatively easy to get in and out of the car. [P.S : I think it's pricier than the Wagon R - i don't know the price of it just a thought that it would be good for an elderly person ] 

      The best looking one would be the EK IMO. 

      Non Kei - I don't think you can get an unreg vitz for 3.3. A passo maybe for around 3.4... Axia maybe?

    Buying BMW E34 or 520i Guide..

    Just found a old pic. Called the guy at the yard.said its was sold some time back. Actually there was 2 very similar looking cars. Sad to see 18-8006 has gotten nastier. Owner seems to have taken the rare and valuable parts out. Notice the alloy wheels it has now? Crappy.. @Octanehead any info about the current info on these?

      which in engine? 2.0t or hybrid? cant really read the badge at the back :D

      @alpha17  It sits lower than the Audi, so better comfort and more car-like. But I prefer the Audi,because the driving feel is much better and it feels like a suv. The Lexus has more tech inside along with the safety stuff(God I hate that beeping), which my mother likes. I prefer minimal tech. Just me the road and 15 Bose speakers for me. 😁 

      I honestly cant see any difference in build quality. Both are top notch.

      But surprsingly, almost everything on the lexus is optional(and very costly). The base doesnt even have gas struts for the hood 🤷🏼‍♂️.


      It starts from 31k USD and all the way to 46k.. ours has all the options you ever need and it was 37k.

      @MrCat Its the 2 liter NA. Dont like them hybrid stuff, it drives boring as it is!

      We got this at launch. So there was no hybrid at that time anyway. Sadly AWD was only on the hybrid, but we dont really need that in Cali.

    Buying BMW E34 or 520i Guide..

    This car was(I think still is) in the peoples leasing yard in maradana, that was back in 2010. Guess they never sold it. They used to quote 800,000. Had some work to be done. Buy it and retsore it. But at first it will not be a daily. Ask for 500,000. Because if its not sold for so many years, it means they will gladly let go. Have atleast anothe 500k in hand for restoration. Was a good car, fully loaded too. Rare. But its not a cheap BMW to pose around(for now 😉 )
  9. The prices have taken a dive to be honest. I remember looking at ads for 8 million and above,just recentky. Now its 6 million and up!

    BMW E30 enthusiasts?

    I feel like buying E34 or E30 for use in SL. But I wont be using it all that much. Hmmm

    SUV with 20kmpl (sarcasm)

    Tried that , but the choice is nasty. Even most high end cars were in bad shape. Biggest issue is the mileage limitations, everybody only has 3000KM per month, I usually need like 6k. Extra kms is hella expensive..

    Nursing a Semi just looking at it! E30`s are hella expensive.There is a M3 going for 89,000 USD (wtf). Would love to have one in SL.
  14. Hey guys! So I was in the country for a month and was hacked with rental cars! I was thinking of buying a car for use when I visit yearly! I was thinking SUV because we be hauling ass (5 pax) with like 4 suitcases all the time. The budget is preferably around 5 Mil(can strech to 6.5 if absolutely necessary). My options are- 2011 up -Bmw X1 (basic AF and more wagonish,but should be fun to drive right?) 2015 up Tivoli-Already have one in the family,so not that keen! 2015 up Vezi- driving feel is absent, feels weird to drive. Best avoided! 2007 ish harrier. Bit overpriced I feel, but well kitted. Driving feel ? And bit old 2010 up kyron- we actually have a few ssanyongs. They were good cars. Used to own a kyron in 2010 for few months. I used to like the thing. But now I feel its ageing badly. About 3 million, so easier on the wallet and can save about 2 million. Also any others? Fuel and resale not cared for! Reliability should be on the higher end though, but a repair or two is ok! Thanks guys.
