  1. May I suggest that Dinesh & Vipul carry our their personal discussions on the PM channel. I totally endorse Cyrus and DD. May I suggest one word to DD. Replace safe by late. I recall one lovely sign posted by Himank (Border Roads Organisation in Ladakh). Better be late Mr Motorist, than be the Late Mr Motorist.
  2. @TSiVipul; Two points 1. I know of the problems of Dual Carriageways Indian Style. The least one can expect is to move over once you spot faster traffic behind you. 2. With both lanes blocked how would you know that the road ahead is clear? On a prayer! Even more so when it is raining. If I am overtaking (or in this case, excuse the pun, undertaking) it is my duty to ensure that I can carry out the manoeuvre safely.
  3. @Bikeridder; Please search. There are quite a few threads dealing with your problem, mostly under AAA.
  4. One must drive carefully. One point not raised here at all, what was the truck doing in the RH lane in the first place? One must drive carefully, and try the anticipate the behaviour of road users. Also, in the wet be extra careful. If you do not have ABS (or in any case) learn Cadence Braking to reduce the risk of locking and sliding.
  5. @reddy; Do a search. The oil selection issue has been discussed in many threads. Look beyond the six months flag as well.
  6. Alloys will not increase consumption. They will improve behaviour in rough roads. Teflon coating in my view is a waste - PTFE is a soft material, and wears off pretty fast.

    Welcome Sathya. We will like to have some more information about you.
  8. The member had started two identical threads, one with a poll, and one without. They have been merged. I personally feel such polls may not be the most useful. If in any segment there was a BEST car, then the others will be out of business. Car choice is based on many factors, and each individual has his own matrix of what he wants.sgiitk2011-07-11 06:18:59
  9. Why talk about marriages and the like. Over 30% of foodgrain is destroyed or rendered unfit for human consumption due to poor storage. I shudder to think what the percentage will be for perishables.
  10. There are multiple threads dealing with this. Please search and you will find. Also, this should be in AAA and not Indian Cars. Topic closed.
  11. Saw something on the box this morning to the effect that they have withdrawn the old one from the market - I assume this means zero or near zero inventory.
  12. Polo should be a good buy. Just check http://archive.autocarindia.com/autocar_forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=8899&KW=engine. Welcome to the forum, on a forum you have no salutations and sign offs. Also, please introduce yourself in the appropriate section.
  13. Do we contact Lady Penelope of Thunderbird fame!
  14. @TSiVipul; Before the hike I read/heard somewhere that every Rupee hike in Diesel will lead to a 0.14% increase in inflation. So what you say is in line with this.
