  1. Dude..u can get some at Landmark.but very limited choices...as said in the thread..best place is bangalore at MODELARTand they aint cheap....iam too a small collecter with jus 22 models collected in last 3-4 years....and parents...well difficult to manage their explaination of WASTEFUL EXPENCE
  2. you can check the recommended tyre pressure just as u open the drivers door on the B-pillar
  3. congrats dude...happy driving
  4. i would opt for the optra petrol..its a great car with good handling
  5. we have seen a couple of sorry tales on the skoda and how expensive it is to maintain..moreover for his drive a suv is a better chioce and safer bet than the sedans...
  6. Hey FRG! thats great news! just let us know the dates you gonna be here and we will be sure to meet you! Hey ppl' date=' send your confirmations, quick!!! hey dats a good news...me too in b`lore for a day ..sometime next week end..date tentitivly on 16th..so any plans[/quote']
  7. hello...what happened mates...the steam seems to have lost...what about chennai guys....you seem to say that no one in this forum from CHENNAI....lets meet up once and am sure it would continue ahead( i think once again we are stuck up for a start)
  8. FE depends on not just tank fills.....there are a lot of other factors as well...as FRG pointed out the tyre pressures/driving style(heavy clutched driving/hard breaking)tank fills to be done only if the engine is cold(should maintain this method at every fill)..may be you can get the filters cleaned....
  9. hi Ashwanth.welcome to the forum.....hope u have a nice time in the forum....
  10. captiva is my choice of suv given its diesel engine,looks,interiors....but @SATYAM,it would be prudent if go in for a locally made suv since you get proper services and also a lot economical to run. resale is better , spares easily available....happy choosing
  11. the crv is one of the best vehicles u have at present,but its a little of too much of those...consider the captiva(interiors,looks and drive)or the endavour(rugged looks,new engine)....happy choosing
  12. i would advise you to go in for the new generation model...rather than a model thats about to be discontinued...in your budget you can choose the aveo(base)which is a good car to drive with a decent mileage..and if you can wait for the swift sedan its better(but might take 3 months to launch)...as for the accent its good but high on the maintaince front..happy choosing
  13. the aveo is definitely a better car to drive(plush & quality interiors....better than fiesta.)and with recent changes to the gear box ratios(old cars had a very dead change feel)is smoother now.as for the average it shoulb be between 11-13kpl in city.also you get good maintainence offers from gm on all models(no tension on maintainence costs)and bargain hard you can get a few thousands off the price..happy choosing
  14. also send in a copy of your letter to the AUTOCARINDIA helpline....am sure they can take up your case directly to toyota...it could well be the misadventure of the dealer too since they tend to pass on faulty vehicles first (may be on transits..drivers driving rash..a common phenomina..)than service them..hope your problem is sorted out. do keep us informed on the response you get from the company
  15. for your driving definitely the diesel car...well for starters consider a rugged vehicle since your driving is high.....luxary cars wont be able to take too much brunt and would prove to be a big damper on your pocket. look at the suv`s....the Endavour is good(after the change in engine and fresh model)well in your budget this is the best pick....
  16. and a verrrrry big appetite too...they drink a lot
  17. well should be some thing undre that...but it seems small and the bonet has a big slope compared to the current 1 and new headlamps as well..hope it comes out good....
  18. 3 cheers to the 3 series.....truly the BEST MOTOR on WHEELS
  19. well ate/slept and saw the races of this great guy in our era...who else but shumi
  20. from the least to the best mileage car companies( well pls correct if iam wrong somewhere) 1-GM(opel-corsa/vectra)+(chevy-old optras before 2006) 2-daewoo-cielo 3-ford-escort-petrol+ikon-petrol 4-hyundai-old model sonata/elantra 5-fiat-palio petrol 6-mitsubshi-lancer-petrol( not including the amby..not into any type of comparison) 7-honda-city 8-maruti-baleno well not including our diesel counterparts since it would be a unfair comparison....
  21. ..made in india or elsewhere at every stage there are taxes involved..from the rawmaterial producer to the car manufacture..each component /part undergoes different tax structure(sales/vat/octoroi/gst....)thats where the taxes come my friend
  22. hi thard...i think a diesel suv and amongst the choices u have given, the capitiva is sure the best...(read ACI-Feb issue for full reports)do not consider the touson cause ther are replacing it with the santa fe sometime in april
  23. if you are not too much of a quality concious then the logan is the best...well actually its got crude plastics,boxy interiors and way too blank for the price you pay...may be you can check the esteem( yeh almost no production)but you get a great deal and a good car,else you could wait for the swift sedan....
  24. looks like heads of all states put together are travelling to gether to attend the session
  25. hi,was watching the R-Day parade and a question struck me,what cars do our ministers drive,should they be consistent all over( i mean in all states)..for staters, our PM/Presi/VP/Ms Sonia gandhi/AB Vajpai get around in the new BMW 7 series(7 nos bought by the then PM Mr AB VAjpai, now shared by the above people).comming to the state level, in Tamilnadu the cm used the SAFARi or sometimes the AMBY. while his convoy consists of AMBYS/SAFARIS and INNOVAS(3 in no). while the x-CM used MIts Pajero and the TAta Sierra(privously) once in a tv report i saw 7 PRADOS used by the UP cm. so guys what about your states any info on that.
