  3. Following the e-challan system introduced by the Mumbai Traffic Police in November 2016, the traffic police have updated the list of offences and the fines that follow for 2019. To help the motorists further understand the fines, the traffic police also introduced the MumTrafficapp last year which can be used by the motorist to clear any pending challans they might have. In 2018 there has been an estimate of nearly 456 fatal catches that were reported in a report by Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety and the challan system the one of the many attempts by the traffic police to reduce those bring down those numbers. To understand the challans and the fines issued, here is the updated list provided by the Traffic Police for 2019. Source

  6. Hi guys, I recently bought a second hand car and just wondering where can I get good car care services in mumbai. i'm mainly looking for car wash, cleaning, things like that.
  7. I've been using this car since July 2012 (all thanks to my boss! )and yes this is my company car- a 2009 Tata Nano LX. Regular readers of the Autocar India magazine would recognize this one instantly! Here's why.. This is the car that was one of the first Nano's to roll off the showrooms and we gave you a full dealership and buying experience when we bought it. AND this is the car that was featured in numerous reviews, road test, long term tests in Autocar India. YES! This is the car that did the epic trip from Singur to Sanad. and Yes (If i am not wrong!) This is one of the very few Nano's that can proudly be called as "Made in Singur"! One of my best experiences with this car was in December last year when I took the car for a routine service at Tata Motors' workshop in Worli Mumbai. A young chap of around 20 was curiously checking out this golden nano. I saw him seeing the car for almost ten mins from various angles. Feeling suspicious, I went near him and seeing me, he raised a question, sir, is this your car? I said yes, Its a company car. But may I i know why do you ask? He said yes, I remember this one, 4068. Its Autocar India's Nano! I remember this one very well. This is the one that made me take the happy decision of buying my first car and then he pointed out towards a yellow one that he had brought for servicing. Hearing all this from him made me proud of the iconic little wonder that I get to use daily and also the publication I work for. This is just one story, I have come accross some more people who remember the cute 4068 very well. One of my colleagues who was part of the Singur to Sanand Drive also bought a similar Nano as a personal car and there are many more! Will come up with more of my experiences with the Nano soon. Its indeed "Khushiyo ki Chaabi" for many Indians! and yes it has more features ( little things that matter) which are not available in the newer 800cc cars! So today (17/2/2013) I took the car to Motoshines, Saki Naka for a steam wash and interior cleaning. Now let the pictures do the talking! This is the place I went to get the car cleaned, Motoshines, Saki Naka, Mumbai The car before cleaning treatment The floor-mats getting cleaned Interior gets a through vacuum done Clean interior for sure Steam wash process starts and more steam wash and some more Ozone treatment starts, this is a treatment done to remove all foul odor from the interior of the car. Total time for the Ozone treatment was 15 mins. The tyres getting the "shine treatment" Clean, real clean interiors and seats. The dash got a mild wax polish done too! Ready to go! Total time for this process, approx 45min to one hour. Approxmate cost: Rs 500 for both steam wash and interior treatment.
  8. Just heard that Lewis Hamilton will be heading to Mumbai and will be driving his Mclaren Mercedes F1 car on Marine Drive on 16th Sept. While it all sounds exciting, the Marine Drive roads are far from good condition at the moment. Its extremely bumpy all around. I think the Sea Link would have been a better option anyday. Not to mention the glasses of the buildings which could be shattered due to the engine noise. What do you guys feel?

  14. It was a high revving Sunday for Mumbai as the finale of the week long Vodafone Speedfest took place at the BKC in Mumbai. 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton took to the streets in his Mclaren Mercedes F1 car and treated enthusiasts by doing what he does best. Going fast. This is the 5th time that Lewis is visiting India. The evening started off with a parade with dancers and jugglers brought down especially for the show. Hosts for the evening Manish Paul and Mandira Bedi interacted with the crowd till the sun set. The best part about this event was that it was an F1 run under the lights and to make it even more exciting the rain gods also played a part by showering rain just before the start of Lewis run. The flag off was done by Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and PWD Minister Chagan Bhujbal. The screamed and shouted as Lewis started off with his runs on intermediate tyres. Though he really didnt go as flat out as he would have liked he entertained the crowd by doing 360 degree donut much to the awe of the viewing public. Later he took some contest winners for a spin in the Mercedes C63 AMG . He also did a round of the whole venue in a truck interacting with the crowd and giving out merchandise. And to please everyone a little more, he did one final run in the Mclaren before saying goodbye this time on slick dry weather tyres. Overall it was a good event and its not everyday that you get to see something like this. I feel more and more F1 teams should look at doing road shows like this considering we now have an Indian GP and F1 awareness has grown leaps and bounds. The last F1 run in Mumbai was done in 2009 by Red Bull and David Coulthard. Here are some pictures from the event. Other forum members who attended can add their pictures here
