  1. Fazer is a nice buy. I am 6'2" and it suits me well( drove my friend's bike). A person of this height should go for a thumper. Even HH Hunk is a nicer option.
  2. Any high capacity bikes( preferably SBKs) coming up from any of the bike manufacturers? around diwali or this this year. I have heard that 600cc bikes are going to be launched by all the major players
  3. Plans dropped @ Bobby Thanks a lot for the info But I am going to wat for the 2011 model. I was thinking about going for the Altis but there is not much difference in my car and the Altis I dont want to end up buying a same car.
  4. I am going to wait for the Civic 2011, I am sure Honda will bring something new in terms of technology
  5. @sgiitk sir, can you give me any suggestions on buying the Civic AT? Reviews i.e. Owner's words to make a new owner. And will it be wise to buy an outgoing model since i feel that 2011 will be the year of the next gen Civic
  6. why dont you buy the karizma R?
  7. I guess Skoda's ASS is better than this looking at the superior brand image in India. They are giving 3 years of Zero Maintainance at Rs. 11111/- And the clutch plates are costing around 57000 inclusive of taxes( I know this because a cousin just got a fresh new set after an accident).
  8. my brother in law said that it's the best buy
  9. why dont you give a shot at royal enfield
  10. i just checked the website.They say, you need to buy a honda to have a discount on a honda(loyalty discounts). is it a new way of increasing the sales on the other models?
  11. @goenkakushal- Thank you for the suggestion. I am looking forward to it. Any deals on ANHC? Civic and Accord have free insurance. And is there a waiting period for AT
  12. @Bobby thanks a lot. This surely has changed something in my mind. @sgiitk sir, I am not a Civic guy. Just didnt love it from the day it was launched. Superb Quality though. But the Boot Space is still less. And yeah the car which i drove was a 2007 made. I didnt knew that the changes made in 2009 were not merely cosmetic in nature. Apologies sir. And quality of the plastics and the switches is the other thing that worries me. I have driven ANHC AT a lot. My brother in law ia a proud owner. The second thing is the front. God forbids, but is it as safe as the german brands and even the corolla/civic
  13. i don't like civic. Low GC, small boot, old model now, not a vfm. Cruze AT any time. even if its a diesel. Altis due to reliability. No issues in the Corolla yet. just spent the money on the services. thats it. and wear and tear of brakes.
  14. thank you sgiitk sir ANHC is the best buy i think I might go for this or wait till March and save some money to buy a better car. I am thinking of driving the Corolla and the i20 only. I might not go a segment below(Quality issues) . Maintainance is a big problem..buying isnt
  15. I dont like Fiat cars in India. Quality is a major concern for me. Thinking about the iVTec now. Any cars coming in the future worth waiting for?
  16. congratulations creativebala the thing that worries me is the quality issues. had none in the corolla(almost 5 years now) the devil in my mind is saying..chuck th cars, buy a honda cbr600 rr Is ANHC good on the highway? better than corolla i mean. I am comparing these two because corolla is a 2003 model and ANHC is a 2008 model. Quality tandards might have improved. Luxury is more in the corolla But who cares when you have a paddle shift spearhead19092010-08-17 22:59:48
  17. @ MODS (BornFree), thank you for creating a new thread. Now i must tell you about my query. I have a 2006 corolla H5. I met with an accident two months back. Though the damage was just external, my parents want to sell it. The car is perfect now, repainted and new parts have been put. I dont want to spend too much money on a new car. (Just spent 2.75 Lakhs on corolla, insurance gave me 1.25lakh) Now i can move to a segment below to Vento or ANHC Auto is the need of the hour due to the city traffic conditions. the car will be used on highways particularly. I have a i20 Asta Diesel too. Now the confusion is- I keep the Corolla for two years or so/ Buy Vento AT( diesel doesnt make sense- 4000km p.a.)/ANHC AT. Heart says ANHC. But should i go a segment lower?
  18. suggestion please- Volkswagen Vento Highline Petrol AT ANHC AT 2006 Toyota Corolla which one is the best buy irrespective of the cost. what will you buy if given a choice
  19. i agree with dinesh. My friend has a karizma and i have a pulsar 200. We both have k& n filters in our bikes. I guess the speedo on the pulsar is quite accurate. We did 143-144 kmph side by side on both the bikes. Though the needle of karizma was near 150kmph. So if there is a speedo error too, then i guess the top speed we got was around 140kmph which is near 145kmph. And dinesh being a racer, he might be having some cool techniques to increase it a bit like streamlining etc..
  20. ludhiana shwroom is already open...they launched the 2010 Q7 over here
  21. the link was working but i guess the mods removed the link...
