    they keep doing so to keep the on high but they say that booking is closed due to over booking of cars

    hmm ... i see. actually i was thinking about doing this 'on' biznis by booking some cheap car and then selling it at high price whenever the car is delivered. but since alto/mehran/cultus are not being booked, i'm thinking about booking a santro. is it a good idea ? what is the booking time and 'on' for santro. thanks

    rawblark thats not really a good idea on moral grounds, if u have any..
    coz of ppl like u who want to do 'biznis' , genuine buyers who geniunely need car for usage purposes and not for reselling suffer long waiting time...
    but i guess its pakistan, all ppl care abt is biznis heh..
    sad!

    i say let's everyone stop buying new cars and stick to old ones, so ppl like rawblark get stuck with their investments and go out of 'biznis'! also check out my forum abt ways to end this blackmarketing of cars.

    Well dear we Pakistani have tonnes of money to waste on anyting and we are ready to pay 200,000 rupees premium (black money) to purchase a car! The only thing is that we cannot wait, we are in a hurry as competing with rest of the developed world. That is why we can throw money like this instead of waiting. Why we cannot wait in a queue because we know that all of us would break the quueu and instead of getting a thing on our turn from a window, we would like to penetrate behind the window, by jumping the queue, so that is the problem. If we book our cars, get a tentative month of delivery from manufacturer and wait, 90% chance is that we can get the car between a month to six months. I booked my Toyota XLi in July04 and was given December04 as tentative month of delivery, Believe me I got my car on Jan 4, 05 and after a month I recieved a check of 2000 rupees from Indus Motor as late delivery mark up, without asking me such a refund! I had some very big jacks in ministries of industries, but did not want to go Pakistani way, so never used them and decided to behave like a responsible educated citizen of Pakistan. I am happy that I waited five months, did not pay a single penny to buggers doing black markeeting of cars and earning haram money that will lead them directly to hell
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    i understand wht u r saying AUTOPHILE but the problem is that we cannot book Mehran/cultus as dealers wont let us, the only way is to pay OWN,

    Matrix, Old cars are getting expensive as well due to this OWN, last week someone was selling me his Sept 2004 Mehran VX for 350000 because he bought it by paying OWN, where do we go from here?

    I STRONGLY CONDEMN OWN. I will not ever pay the own. but problem is that if sum 1 needs a car he will have to pay own. My Mamoon paid Rs 2 lakh for 2.0d Saloon and 60k for Cultus and sum what abt 40k for mehran. but they needed it in urgent for their staff. Guyz get the solution. Are Lancer, etc are good solution? isnot?
