    Dear dayrider

    Car is in vip condition. Engine has been installed 3 months back suspension are in 100%. All electrical functions are properly working even auto antena is also working. He just showered the car few months back the painter maked the mistake. I will keep the car for long terms. So 1998 vti with dual vtec and color a bit change is it a good deal ??

    What will be the issue of this color ??? Will this effect on resale. Car is non accidented originaly 109k km driven and rust free. Please advise should i go for this or reject due to color.

    Which city are you in? Is the engine change done legally? 109k genuine car doesn't need an engine change. Uper uper seller k baaton pay yakeen na karain and properly verify. As for resale, a fully showered vehicle with a changed engine, forget about resale

    I was confused only due to color and i already getting a car little bit cheap. mostly 98 in good condition people asking around 500k for exi and for VTI they are asking around 520 to 540k. so even if i lose 20-30 k after 1-2 year it doesn't matter to me because i will keep the car for long terms.

    fully showered with replaced engine. :/ seems like abused so much. ODO reading is for sure tempered.

    anyways get it check thoroughly if ur satisfied drive wise then go for it. better get it checked from mechanic. if u have doubt in color reduce the offer further 30-40k, and get is painted by urself

    The shade of the color makes no difference at all, unless you plan to sell it as total genuine, only then will it matter. Otherwise it makes no difference what so ever.

    a different shade doesnt matter as long as the entire car is in the same color
    price is pretty reasonable just make sure that the engine no has been updated with ETO and has been mentioned on the book

    if you plan to keep the car for long, just make sure of the mechanical stuff and body. Otherwise color is not a problem since you can get it properly repainted in coming years (or sooner if the current paint job is poorly done).

    Moreover, Golden color is rather slow seller compared to other colors, so whatever shade of Golden, it doesnt matter.

    If you are getting it for a reasonable price and condition wise you dont expect it to give problems soon, then go for it.

    Colour shade doesnt matter...its the same colour it wont effect the cars value...as 90 percent of the cars of these models are showered...i m3an 20 saal purani gari asli paint mein tooo hony sy rahi and trust me same goes for engine change...few cars would have their original engine...i will prefer a changed engine over an overhauled one as it would have been done by a jugari mechanic without proper tools so a changed engine will be a good bet as it would be used outside of country where mechanics know their work and people know to take care of car
