  1. "Mobil Delvac MX 15W 40". I use the same in my Swift Vdi and experiencing good results.
  2. Looks good. Hope the Indian version gets a solid / sturdy feel to it. It would be great to get the 1.6 VTVT in this car alongside the proven 1.3 DDIS. It would be a treat if a 1.6 or 1.9 DDIS also features soon !
  3. Congrats!! I am a fan of Royal Enfields, though I dont own one. The road presence and the unmistakable thump sets it apart. The chrome looks super cool. If the Machismo's get the twin spark technology, will it alter the thump from the silencer? I ask this because the Thunderbirds with Twinspark have a totally different noise.
  4. Thackervijay, I drive my dad's Baleno. Dont own a car yet.
  5. Wow, great thinking. What about having all these captions all around a single car
  6. Hi, i suggest it to have the wordings as 'Tiny wonder'. Not sure whether it would really be one.
  7. Ha Ha, good one. In the current scenario, with the fuel prices shooting up, this is the best to do..
  8. Hi, i would go for a 'GPS system'. It truly need one because, I am not an expert with directions. And with the remaining money i would purchase a good music system with ipod compatability.
  9. As far as i know '3M' is the best brand for Sunfilms.
  10. Wow!! Amazing pics buddy. Would love to have these paint jobs done here in India. Sure to be a hit, would burn a hole in our pockets though..
  11. Looks great. Surely someone should guard those wheels. I'm wondering if anybody would drive this car is slush and mud?
  12. Hi Vibhor, from the given list of cars i would opt for the Mitsubishi Evo. Its a stunner and i'm sure its performance would be better than its appearance. Mean Machine..
  13. Hi, go for the Maruti SX4. As u had mentioned its loaded with goodies and is real value for money. Optra is quite good, but it cannot match the hassle free ownership that the Maruti offers.
  14. Hi Rohan, i would recommend Fiesta 1.6 among the 2 cars u've listed. Ford's maintanence costs would be high though. If you are open to other models as well, then consider the Maruti SX4 and the Honda City. Both are good value for money and are better than the 2 models u've listed in most parameters.
  15. I feel the main reason for the huge difference in the sales figures of the 2 cars is the cost of service and the spare parts. Maruti's service network is the second to none. The Getz as mentioned is more practical than Swift and has a better build too. i20 would be placed a step above the Getz and would compete with the Skoda Fabia and the Honda Jazz.
  16. Hi, i'm looking to purchase a gearless 2 wheeler for college use. Which one is better among these - Activa or Dio. Some points to note: 1) I've not driven bikes to a large extent so far. Not an expert rider. 2) Need a bike with a good ride and easy handling. 3) I prefer it to be well planted during emergency braking. Should offer good grip. 4) I didn't consider Aviator because, i feel it looks a bit girly. Thanks..
  17. Hi in my, Dad's Baleno - 140 kmph. Uncle's Corolla - 160 kmph. I felt a bit nervous driving Baleno in that speed, since it felt a bit loose. Corolla was really well planted.
  18. Hi, i too learnt driving at a very young age. Premier 118NE was the car in which i learnt driving. I first got used to the steering wheel, sitting on my dad's lap. The first car i completely drove myself was a Premier Padmini. I had my first biking experience on a Rajdoot.
  19. Dad owns a Suzuki Baleno Vxi (2004 model). I am planning to buy Swift diesel for myself.
  20. I am from Chennai. Completed B.Com. MBA classes start from August 08.

    New Honda City

    Hi, the latest edition of 'Autocar' confirms that the car in the pics is the new Honda City. This should clear the doubts many members had earlier.
  22. Hi nice pictures. The front looks great. I think Ford should bring in the 1.6 TDCI engine soon to match up the brutal Verna.

    New Honda City

    Wow, this still is a hot topic in the forum. Buddies we'll get the answer for all our questions and confusions this October. Cheers..

    New Honda City

    I see a lot of opinions among the members whether this is the new Honda City or not. Can this be the new car that Mitsubishi-HM has promised to launch by October this year. I feel the Mitsubishi badge would be more appropriate for the car as it doesn't look like a Honda .
