      2. Optra was launched in 2003, market was not matured enough for a expensive sedan at that time. that was time all multi nationals came with their products (read - Corolla)
      3. Opel which was sold in India had a abrupt ending so no one wants to take a risk of buying a expensive Chevy which comes from the same company
      4. Chevrolet as a brand din't have good reputation at that time
      5. Skoda was literally ruling this segment with Octavia
      Toyota Camry MT|TATA Safari EX 4x2

      After reading some much about the Optra decided to go visit the website and showroom. The website said the Optra Magnum diesel was still available. WOOOOHOOO

      Went down to Kropex, asked them for a quotation; got a and I was . This is what happens when you donot :-(

      Even the second hand market for the same seems to be very strong. 2008 model cars demanding 9lakhs...

      Seems they do have a 2013 Optra in the pipeline...

      Should I wait for another 6 months or shall i go in for a second hand.

      I badly want to look at a rapid and say "Wanna race??"
