    A top-of-the-line 300G Premium Mark X or a '04 Crown Royal Saloon would be the best options in the 4 million price range.

    The Pearl White '05 IS250 F I told you about wasn't that bad of an option either but you didn't want it, it got sold last week

    P.S: What about that Evolution?

    Sir, Prado should be out...get a change of flavor...so you are left with the three remaining choices (from the mentioned ones)...and all three are extreme ends of the spectrum...

    SUV LC - SUV say SUV replace karnee hai to LC is shortlisted...other choices are a tundra (but UAE mein the damn thing looks like a blue collars work truck...which it actually is...so I don't know if you'd even like to keep it back here in Pak...plus it's left hand)...escalade EXT again left hand...I know someone who got rid of his for 4 mill...

    Merc E...well now you are talking about the baba ride...slow and status symbol...hmmm other options in this class...hmmm...(in 4 mill)...7 series, 5 series...but BMWs are pretty sensitive...Merc is still better...the new C class will also be there in the same budget...smaller but still the new shape. if you are not too worried about 2 door 4 door thingy...the CLK (early 2000s) can also be had...damn good car...much much better than the E and the C..

    Sporty drive yet low key...is the Mark X...interior is great, bhps are good, acceleration is excellent even from int'l standards and it's low key as its a toyota...another advantage...resale is brilliant...

    my personal vote is if you wanna go for a 4 door will be a mark x 3.0g...the best of everything but then that's me ........

    there is one 2005 markx 300g premium standing at jaild road with 19s rims. full options. he is asking 34.


    @a1ms you are very correct on that and i would love to get a V8 but i have to atleast put another 1 million to get a decent 03 LC .. the ones which are available on lesser price are not so clean .. Wht you think would a avg price for a 03 LC 4.7V8 ??
    in SUV landcrusier is the best option for you. well you can easly get a clean 03 cruiser for around 45 lacks. dont go for prado unless it is 4.0l v6 tz g selection because 2.7l and 3.4l are underpowered

    Sir jee first thanks for a Detailed Reply ..

    Ok as far as Tundra is concerned i already kept in Dubai for 2 years and i dont wanna own it again .. not that its a not a good machine but because it gave be a back problem cuz the ride is not that good at all .. and as you said its a Left hand ...

    My First choice would defiantly be a land Cruiser but i am not sure that i would be able to get a decent one in my budget.

    You are ABSOLUTELY correct that E call is old mans ride and slow ... and too much flash also ..

    So certainly it comes down to the MARK X 3.0G and i presume that i should be able to get a decent one in my Budget ...

    But Still LC would be my first pick

    I'd also go for the new shape c class. I think you can get a 07 in your budget if you look around.

    Suneel bhai has one e class for as he says its 35000km driven shahnawaz maintained. I beleave what he says its sure a clean e-200.



    About 100 series well thats the first option for sure. Find some 99 model in reasonable condition around 30 lacks. Then mod it chip it old man emu suspension make it a monster vehicle.


    About mark x i think it is over priced and not worth it.
