    Default Some help please..

    I live in Bern , Switzerland but im back home in Islamabad.
    Will be here for a year and need a car for that time.
    Not more than 6lak 50k.
    Should i go for Santro Club ?? Costs around 6lak 10k with CNG , so if i sell it after a year how much do u guys think i will get ?? I can bear a loss of around 30k otherwise i will go for 2nd hand.
    dnt want to buy Joy cause it wont sell.
    and no Suzuki, toba karo.
    Waisay cars here are too expensive when u consider the quality and features. You can get a brand new Land Cruiser in Switzerland for the equivalent of Rs.35lak.
    Yaar wahan DSL for free. just mentioned tht cause i bought a Hungama card for 100rs and only 31.2kbps.

    @drummer36 brother then opt for second hand corolla or vitz if you dont want to loose ur money. As in corolla or vitz there are few chances where one can loose any money but be prepared for uncertainities as imported cars are really giving tough time to locally assembled cars as they are loosing their resale value.

    Vitz is not a safe bet, opt for a used rolla and when you will sell it after one year, won't lose a penny.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    @autophile

    totally agree with u bro, but drummer bhai needs quality + class + comfort + shashka.....ALL within 6.50 .....AND he is not too happy with the home finished cars, dats why i opted for Vitz

    if u ask ME personally, doesnt matter how "tin ka dabba" a suzuki is, u can sell it in less time for a GREAT value as compared to buying good tomatos from market....which SEEMS to be his first preference

    REGARDS

    @Drummer. I have visted Switzerland and mostly explored Geneva in June 2000.

    @Waleed. Vitz is a good used car also, but one of my friends who was planning to buy one ditched the idea coz he said that it had very little ground clearance and touched down on bumpy roads.

    @waleed
    Loosen up. If ur happy with the car manufacturers exploiting us then good for you.
    7 laks for santro Exec CNG - very reasonable hmmm.
    Civic - top of the line 13laks in Pk. thts how much the new 1.8 fully loaded Civic costs in Dubai.

    Michael Moore made Farenheit 9/11 and Bowling For Columbine-- he must hate his country. (sarcasm - hint - hint)
    If you are happy with the way things are going in our country ( yes im from here too) then that is your opinion and i should respect it.although i havent.
    The ONLY problem here is tht no one complains or raises a voice . we just accept everything.
    The americans bomb our country and kill our people --tell me who protested. They invaded our air space - thats against international law. The way our leaders suck up to the americans is pathetic. That is what people are most surprised about -- when i told my Swiss friends abt the incident they really couldnt believe it. they thought people would be rioting on the streets.
    And i try to set a positive image of Pakistan but it never works.
    and about your melon -- most of our population earns a mere Rs100 (or less) a day. tell me how many people can afford melons.
    REGARDS
    and sorry to everyone for this long and boring sermon.

    Coming back to cars--
    i knw i mentioned 6lak 50k range but forget abt tht.
    Vitz - '03. low mileage. red colour.
    Motor Mania in blue are - price was 7lak80k .
    My only hesitation with the Vitz is availabilty of spare parts and servicing.
    Mileage?
    Does it really have good resale??

    And wht about 2004 - 2005 Xli corolla?? wht should i pay ?
