  1. @Sstar: Congrats for the Ritz,its really one gem of a car and the practicality it offers is really mind blowing. About the ICE problem,it sounds like your head unit has some minor problem.Just get it checked quite soon. WHAT ABOUT SOME PICS?TSiVipul2012-05-22 09:37:48
  2. @Dr Sachin: Its great that you are safe.Safety comes first and it looks like your Honda City ended up saving you.We too met an accident in a Honda City only and I was again okay in just 10-11 days,what else do one need? My friend to replaced his City with a City....what is your plan?
  3. Well,my Corolla was our first ever car to get tinted windows but as soon as the warning came we got it removed(my chauffy is master in all this)that also just under 15 days of installing the sunfilms.. Now I am happy with our old method:Sun blinds and amazingly they(Police) are not having any issue with them.
  4. Congoz for the fiery beauty doctor. The bike is looking really great. Here some guys have got the rear wheel of their orange FZ-s(same as yours)colored in orange.Any plan for any suc mod by you? Rest you took quite long time in replacing your stolen bike..
  5. I'll be mentioning the new transportation fares as soon as the price increases.
  6. Maybe the Ertiga can sell a lac units in a month but for me its nothing more than a . I did the TD,okay it has got good performance(for its size and engine)but still its not upto the mark,front seats are okay,plastic quality etc is good.Dash is also looking good.Ride and handling is also good and FE is also good. But when it comes to overall driving comfort..its not the car for me and my driving style.Its terribly undertyred and under hard braking those 185 section tyres try their best to give up. And why that spaceless third row?Instead they should have offered some more spacious rear seats and more comfort.C'mon yaar I am Innova type and the Ertiga which is priced near to the Xylo feels like a spartan cave in front of the Xylo. about bookings,when cars like Verna and XUV can gain a lot then why not Ertiga? Amazingly one thing is common in all three,what? "I literally hate all three of them"..
  7. Honda City i-vtec any day.Verna stands nearly nowhere in front of the City. Ride,Handling,Driving comfort,FE etc etc all favor City only.
  8. Finished final year last paper!!! Congrats for the beginning of new innings buddy...
  9. Here are some wonders of the super macro mode of my camera..
  10. I still why don't they make it modern with time and conserve their heritage??
  11. Welcome to the ACI Ilango. Have a pleasant stay here. Wishing you get the best of the jobs you are searching for..
  12. Maruti Suzuki wagon R any day if you can't go above 5 lacs.Best car and offers a fantastic practicality. And if you can exceed 5 lacs then it should be a Ritz ZXi.TSiVipul2012-04-20 15:18:07

  14. Well,happy birthday buddy. May all your dreams and desires come true.
  15. Well,just check out if there are any abrasions or if the outer finish is quite spoilt,rest everything is okay. About the Chinese thing,buddy today most of the things are Chinese.So being true,its no issue at all.

  17. Hahaha..what a great article that was!! Simply hilarious,but true too..hahaha. Thumbs up Rameshbabu.
  18. Well this month of November has really given a lot of surprises and some good news too:- 1):Punto and Linea sales graph again rising slowly. 2):first time that cruze has taken the beating and its sales fell below 500 units. 3):Corolla again emerged as the king of the segment with 488 units. 4):Effect of THAI flood,Honda's sales figures are even worse than pathetic. 5):The SWIFT won in the segment with POORNA BAHUMAT..or MAJORITY. 6):Scorpio again crushed the Innova under its A/T tyres. 7):Biggest of all is the KIZASHI surprise..TSiVipul2011-12-02 09:06:58
  19. Well,120 bhp and 300nm of torque.. The Civic petrol costs nearly equal to Cruze then what will be the price of the Civic diesel? Damn,this car will directly fly bang into the Laura territory and we can rest assured that the car will be slightly overpriced too. Although a 1.4-1.5 diesel can do wonders in the midsize sedan segment.
  20. +1 to Dr Nishu and Ashikawa(That's a Polo 1.6):- Why?Even I too have heard as well as read at many places that airbags does not deploy in such a case as of the Polo and the Merc,why?Because the trigger is located somewhere near the lower end of the grill behind the fron bumper and in case any impact is there above the trigger(even if it misses by 1 mm)then the airbags will not open EVEN IF ITS A VOLVO.Also the system can't be made very sensitive too,else if even the car will collide with a bicycle then the airbags will open up and then they are really costly to fix then people will blame the company in an another way. When my Laura brushed a stationary truck,my half front bumper was damaged and 'pop' the airbags opened(I have already mentioned this before in 'your top speed ever' thread). Overall that means that IN CASE THE TRIGGER IS NOT STRUCK,THE AIRBAGS WILL NOT OPEN.. Secondly:Its the technology and it can fail too and maybe this is the worst form of the failure of technology. Third and most important: After all its the driver who is the reason and sufferer of all,so the driver needs to be careful.
  21. Those are fantastic points SB.. Tomorrow is my semester exam and this has happened:- Now.. WHO WANTS TO PASS NOW..The hell with semesters,they come every six months but one issue of ACI comes only once...so NO SEMESTER EXAMS..ITS JUST ACI.. ANY DOUBT WITH ANYONE??TSiVipul2011-11-30 14:53:39
  22. As much I remember,MS is providing SX4 with CNG too.. Okay,so you can get a used SX4 and get a CNG installed from MS itself.This will be reliable,safer and peace of mind too.
  23. @Rameshbabu: Now no more comments from me on this topic.Why? Because I don't want to make an argument on someone's death.I myself have experienced what it feels to lose your loved ones in an accident. Rest its the technology that is meant to help us and it can fail too. Have a look at this,this happened to me only:- Innova's ABS failure
  24. Well,now whatever the wife may do..the hubby has lost his car and he won't really forgive the wife for this. I hope in the second part of this story,there is a complete restoration project.
