      I feel the definition of premium cars is flawed here. Few cars mentioned here like Jetta and Octavia are better and cheaper than Audi A3 (so called premium brand car). Similarly Superb is far superior in comfort and luxury than the likes of A3.

      Camry seems to be vfm car.
      Yes, being a Toyota, it should be easy on pockets.

      Toyota's pricing in India !!

      A Camry costs around 15lac with 5 years warranty and service thrown in! (17 lacs for the top end sports model)
      A Prado starts at 22lac through to 35lac for the absolute top end with auto everything!
      A Land Cruiser with the 4.0l engine starts at around 33 lacs to 42lacs, the 4.6 litre from 32 to 52lacs, and the range topping 5.7 litre between 43lacs and 57 lacs!

      Frikkin' daylight Dacoity .. not robbery!

      I was in a Tahoe that was involved in a sideswiping incident with a Camry taxi the other day. Absolutely NOTHING happened to the Tahoe - not a dent, scratch.. not even paint! The Camry was another story! ... so much so even the cops had a hard time believing the taxi guy was not lying and caused the damage elsewhere. The build quality is pathetic! You can lean on it and leave dents on the panel!

      Dubai is not a great market for automobiles. All dealers are monopolies here! They pretty much ask what they want/can get away with. There is a huge parallel direct import market here. You could get cars for almost 30-40% lesser than the dealer price! The dealers counter by giving you the "GCC Spec" spiel and not honouring warranty/racalls etc. Even give step-motherly treatment if you take one such car for service. Yet the price sensitive ones get it imported.... esp the luxury ones and the ones with custom built options. Some models are not even sold here by the dealer - like the Toyota Tundra. Why it beats me - it seems popular enough and everyone gets it imported from the US. The US is the best place to buy a car - thanks to the cut throat competition. There are multiple dealers for every brand in any 50 mile radius.

      To answer your question the G63 AMG costs between INR 1.36 and 1.55 Crores depending on trim and options in Dubai.

      It starts at 2.46 crores in Bangalore. I asked the question just to know if it is similar for other CBU models and not just Toyota. Moreover import duty is now close to 200% if engine size > 3000cc.

      Major part of robbery is done by govt.

      Going back to the original topic
      It is not as high as many assume it to be - As long as you are fine with the hassle of sourcing parts on your own.

      I have a X1 (not exactly a luxury barge but probably premium)
      As with all other brands, the company auth workshops tend to charge a major premium
      The cost of an oil change is approx 10K (which is alright considering it lasts 12-14K kms)
      However, the cost of two filters at each service (Air and cabin) with labor comes to another 12-13K
      What I do now is I order them from an independent shop in Delhi (OEM and genuine) - Replacement takes an hour of my time and the total cost comes down to around 3.5K

      Similarly, brake pads replacement (At ~35K kms) cost me 12K for all 4 pads (~10K for Textar OEM pads + 2K labor at independent workshop)
      It's easy to source genuine parts esp in Delhi and Mumbai at a fraction of the workshop costs

      Two parts replaced under warranty so far (car is little over 3 years old)
      The battery which came from a defective batch and rear view mirror that stopped folding
      Had it not been under warranty, I would have sourced externally
