LOL. Okay, so I can find you a clean mercedes e220 CDI, isb registered 2010 import. Amazingly clean.
Will you go for it? Assume she is to stay with you for as long as viper has been there (4 years I think?)... Will you be able to carry out all the periodic maintenance? The fuel costs? Spare parts? God forbid in case of a breakdown, you know what it would cost to get it up and running.
Same is the case with mark x. No wonders it's a great machine to own, no parallel. But for one, its nearly impossible to find a clean one. Secondly, spares, maintenance, fuel, resale, reliability.... everything matters in this case. I won't even think of going for a mark X when my budget is limited to this extent and I am going to have it as the only car to fill my family in and travel long routes. Just not my thing. I want a machine that has warranty, no spare part issue, reliability and most importantly, the new car smell.
P.S: I forgot to mention previously, there is absolutely NO chance for civic to get a facelift. Not this generation at least. 10th gen is expected in 2017 and I think... lol... I would rather buy something than nothing... kehtay hain na.. live it abhi. 2017 kis ne dekha hai, kal khel main ham hon na hon, gardish main taaray rahen ge sadaa.
