    Used German's on a tight budget: JUST DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. Get a Vezel or a Camry Hybrid instead.

    Vezel brought for 35 lakh will also loose 6-9 lakh in 2 yrs. But those going for X package may loose less 3-4 lakh

    X will lose the most. Barely anybody buys it. I hate those black bumpers on it plus the difference between X and Z zero meter is not that much.

    Summed up beautifully. These C and E class's are pain to maintain. Better get them new. People bring up various options in this bracket but fail to understand that zero is zero meter.

    Well if Vezel will lose 6 on 35 i promise C class will lose 12. The figures were hypothetical to be honest just to pass a point across. And I promise maintainence will be thrice if you use the Merc exactly like a daily drive Vezel. Like i said only get it if you are lucky to have that kind of money. They just can't be compared to convenient newer Japanese if you want to stay hassle free. German cars are only good till they're in warranty.

    Once you are out of warranty and something goes wrong: you are in for a treat even if you don't go to Shahnawaz. A spare key costed me 65000 and that's just the tip of the iceberg. A fried alternator will set you back 110000, which i have been through. So trust me if you don't want such surprises, you are much better off with a Vezel.

    Black Bumpers on X? There's no difference in bumpers. And when its going to come to resale. X will loose less as its already cheaper. You can compare resale of Grande/Civic with Xli/Gli/City

    Bhai X has black bumpers/extenders. Only Z has matching bumpers/extenders . X will lose the most. No one buys it due to price difference and it just looks hideous.

    Not disagreeing with your point.These cars loose the most. And tbh I've seen 1-2 yrs old mercedes maintained by shahnawaz not starting or creating problems which does not happen in Japanese. Even i heard it on news a month ago orr so that Prime Ministers Mercedes not starting

    It's personal preference. They look more pronounced on white color. I personally dont like them because it looks as if one has bought the lowest trim level. Anyways, the zero meter price difference is not that huge between X and Z you can check recent bid prices on auction house. And apart from this Z has extra goodies that make it worth it.

    Great. Now it's nearly impossible to find Vezel in this range due to high yen. I am thinking twice before importing zero meter Honda sensing Vezel Z as it costs 34.5 lakhs :/
    Really confused.

    Why is everyone so concerned with resale ? Buy what you love be it a space shuttle. I bet that has zero resale value.

    Almost finalized the deal bro
    Havent given any token money yet so yes i am not bound
    But after checking it again in the evening for almost 1 hr the car is def a step above civic
    Quality fit and finish is tooooo goood
    I simply loved it
    Even at 35 lacs it is value for money
    But the amount is huge and even after all the points in its favor you have to think countless times before taking such a step
