I've been doing a bit used car shopping with a friend recently and a few days back came across this striking black Altis 1.8VL car and was offered a test drive when i showed interest in it, I'm glad i did because i fell in love with the car. The VL variant has all the bells and whistles and rear side airbags too, The car is a one owner 48000 km driven and four years old last month.
The asking price was originally 9.5 lacs and i managed to whittle it down to 9.25lacs and then thing stalled a bit. Tomorrow, is D-day and i will know if this car will be mine and the salesperson has promised to talk to his manager if they will accept my offer of 9lacs even. Hopefully they do and i will get the car in my garage middle of next week after Registration etc.
The used car dealer is a reputed firm and the promoters have new car dealerships too outside of Madras so provenance is assured and is a one stop place where exchange of old car paperwork and documentation is done free other than Motor Vehicle charges and insurance costs.
Below is a pic of the car and ill post interior pics etc, after my visit to the dealer saturday if things go well. Please pray for this endeavour and my thanks for the same.
So, i drove to the dealer saturday and closed the deal at inr 9.35lacs as 10,000 inr was the dealer fee for both buyer and seller. After road tax formalities which is 2500 for this car and interior cleaning i hope to pick up this car on wednesday or latest thursday. Thanks for your well wishes and more of the same till i get it home this week.
