  1. In the current COVID situation and import ban what is the use of 35000 usd cif permit, is it possible to get a Merc like CLA 180, CLA 200 or C200. Since we can buy a unregistered car from an authorized dealer with tax concessions after new circulars, is the above models are available within that permit range? Need some thoughts on this.

  4. Dear All I'm looking to import a car for the 3.6 mil permit, budget between 4-6mil. Will be using it for a minimum of 2 years. I was thinking of the Honda civic 1.0L but rethinking that because of a) Ground clearance - 135mm may not be enough as not limited to the city? b) Have to get the Tech pack (highest grade) because others have no value for the permit. So looked at the corolla sport (maybe better resale value, same ground clearance) and the mazda 3 (which may not have the same resale value?) Any thoughts? Am I overlooking any other options? (not too keen on the CH-R
