    Pre 2012 , alloys and airbags were standard on Emotion Pack variant which is the current Emotion variant (top end). Whoaa! 1,64,000 is quite a bit on the odo and good to know that its still going strong :up

    Correction. :)

    Previous Emotion pack = Current Dynamic.
    Current Emotion = Current Dynamic+16" Alloys+Leather seats+Cruise control.

    ok.. So in a nutshell, Alloys and Airbags werent a std. accessory in 2009 model Linea Emotion.

    What would be a good price for this car ?

    I am planning to ( if i buy ) immdiately flush the engine oil using Engine Flush and then add engine oil with Neulon. What other things should I do after buying ?

    Also , I observed that one of the front headlamp is slightly cracked. How much would a new cost me ?

    Front headlamp will cost around Rs.4500 per piece.

    Considering the car has done 1.64 lakh km & it doesn't have alloys or airbags, I would say you should buy it for a max price of 3.5l-4l.. This is purely my assumption.

    Never flush an engine that has run a good number of kilometers.
    Simply change the engine oil and you will be good to go.
    How much is the seller quoting for this one?

    Hi Akshay,

    Thanks for your response.
    What is the reason behind your recommendation of not flushing the engine ? From my understanding it simply removes the carbon from the engine.. So irrespective of the mileage, i thought it would be a good idea to cleanse the engine. I am still interested to know your opinion.

    Seller is asking for 3.5l.will see how it works out.

    Harmeet, considering the fact that the car has run a decent number of kilometers, is a emotion variant (not the emotion pack) and your city I.e Delhi, this price seems to be a tad more than what you should be paying for. One of my friend bought a 40k run 2010 Linea emotion pack MJD for 3.25 in Delhi itself. So better be sure on the pricing thing. I opine 2.5 to 3.00 should be the max offer depending on your negotiation skills.

    All the best and hope to see your car in coming days!

    Cheers,
    Mahesh

    No way brother. I'm not getting a similar offer for my 2009 Linea Emotion with 65k on odo.
    It should go no more than 3L.

    You'll definitely get 3.5l+ for sure...Coz the dealer here in T Nagar itself is willing to buy for 3.5l+ for my friends Linea Emotion Pck 71k run. If you put an ad in Sulekha, chances are there some direct customer will buy it for good price.

    And I agree, the car mentioned by Harmeet, having run for 1.6k+, you'll get it below 3.5l
