    Yamaha Fazer

    Thank you, I think hats off to this companies who makes the users to think a lot before purchasing even their own products. @Bala, I think Karizma will not suit my height and that was exactly the reason why i dropped the idea of Pulsar 220.

    I have never test rode R15, how about the comfort while riding for long hours as I travel atleast 50 kms a day on the other hand I felt that Fazer was quite comfortable, riding position, handling...

    yes they are giving... But still thinking whether to go for Fazer or R15, price tag not being the problem, I am thinking about longivity.

    @Bala I went to showrooms and as you say there was a price difference, one dealer told me Rs.81,000 as the on road price and the other Rs.77,000 as the on road price.

    Hi, Sorry for mistake I meant R15 not FZ15. @Bala The showroom guy told me though the same thing about the keeping the switch in between but also warned me about draining the battery fast. Rear disc yes, but kick lever I believe these manufacturers are confident about their engine start up in all weather condition.
  6. Hi All, After going through the exhaustive comparison between Yamaha Fazer and Pulsar 220 in the Auto Car India magazine, I decided to test ride the Fazer as I have already done the same with 220 initially. The Fazer was much comfortable in handling and gave a confident feeling while riding. But onething that surprises me is why can't Yamaha add some features to this bike keeping in mind its price. For e.g the engine should have been a 180cc or atleast the power should have been more, the headlights glows one at a time unlike the FZ15, which I feels spoils the beauty of the bike, if you have provided two headlamps, then you should make provision for both of them to be on at the same time, infact which also reduces the illumination. But the ride quality is superb, infact for a person of my height of 5'6'' and average weight it suits the best. But I only feel if Yamaha would have taken care of the above mentioned features. Please comment! Regards, Anirban
  7. Hi, Does the turbo charger in both petrol and diesel engines works the same way. I know how they function but do the timing when turbo kicks in differs in petrol and diesel engine meaning does both engines experiences same amount of turbo lag? Is it true that Turbo works better in diesel engines than their petrol counterpart? In India which are cars with petrol engine having turbo chargers except Superb? Are there any cars in India with superchargers? Regards, Anirban.
  8. So I believe Passat is a better choice...
  9. @ Bala, liked ur creativity from your quotes... @ Durango Dude : Even I am in the same dilemma heart says Superb for its luxury but brain says Passat for overall experience.
  10. Hi, Please help in my decision in selection! A Volkswagen Passat or Skoda Superb? Diesel version, I think both have the same tech engine. How about other features? Regards, Anirban
  11. Hi, I own an Alto, now I want to fit xenon headlamps for the car. I enquired wth a dealer in Chennai (where I stay) Auto Impex about it, he said that it can be fitted and I wanted a 6000K. The question is the stock lights are 60/55W and does fitting a xenon 6000K healights will put an adverse pressure on the battery? Can the alternator fitted, handle the current, though I think xenon draws lesser current than conventional bulbs. Is there any risk of burning the circuit wiring due to overload. Due I need to fit any additional relay or any kind of booster along with the lamps? Also if anone knows any better dealer for the same. P.S : I am going to fit it regardless of the cop menance... Regards, Anirban
  12. Yeah... definitely it was a vintage of those days... I compared it the other three cars as it was quite close in looks with them manufactured in India.
  13. Hi, When I say deep pocket, its not just to buy the car and get the paint job done, I am talking about engine mod. to deliver atleast 3-4 times the original power of the engine. It is then it becomes a muscle ofcourse with the body makeover, otherwise its just another car. Regards, Anirban
  14. Hi,?I have put up this topic as it was hovering around my mind for quite sometime now, we all have heard of American muscle, "The old school" as one would say, a high performance beast against the imports which are more kinda zippier rather than rock solid. The question does India ever had a muscle of its own or shall we say "Indian muscle," it does as I believe may be the car was not as fast and powerful as its american counterpart but atleast looked quite similar and probably with a mod and spending quite a hefty sum it would have been on of those kind. Any guesses which car I am talking about. Yes you got it right. The Contessa classic. The car was launched by HM as contessa and succeeded by the classic version which probably resembled the '72 Ford Torino, Chevelle or the Plymouth. The car wasn't successful enough porbably due to its size and road condition in India but if we Indian were admirer of our own home brands, that car would have survived. Probably we like more of imports or the foreign brands of cars.Nevertheless I have always wished to drive one of those American muscle but didn't get a chance, I wish if I would had a contessa classic and deep pocket to mod it, I wouldn't have complained either.Suggestions!

  15. Thanx Cyrus... Ya even I thought about it that whether the car is dyanamics of the car is match for the sudden increase of power. I am sure Swift is a great car but as of now I have to settle for what I have coz even if I buy a new car, you need to give it sometimes right before you modify it.
