@Rightnow: Sure Mate, I would love to share the pics of my pets. I would try to do it over the weekend.
@ Iron Rock: My OHC is a 2002 model. And i would say this car is one of the best looking cars in India which is also modification friendly. I am not done any modifications though except for the 14'' Plati Alloy wheels and yokohama tires. The car has the best blend of performance and comfort. Fast pickup and has good ride/handling. Uptill now, the car has touched 86K and I have covered about 15k from the time I bought in 2007. Apart from some minor mechanical parts replacements; thankfully, the car is being merciful to me by not asking me for any major parts replacements. However, I need to change the front suspensions though. i am waiting for my salary.
It is a fast car. Even though it is a 12 years old car, it is still silky smooth, and high revving.
Good resale value. I have been enquired many times if my car is up for sale. I have been offered 2.5L once from a guy.
Comparatively, it still looks quite futuristic and sporty.
It has good space inside.
Easy and a great car to drive in town.
Parts easily available and reasonable price.
Has a good image
I am getting only about 9km/l. Mechanically, I am an alien. I just know the basics of the car so if you could suggest me how can I increase the mileage, it would be wonderful. I know of a 2002 OHC near my house in RT nagar and I asked him once about his mileage and he said he gets about 14 km/l!!! I would be over the moon if i get that mileage.
P:S I would love to write my overall experience with my OHC in details. But this would take some time. Please bare with me.
@ D.J.D. I am not from your region. I am from Manipur and right now I am in Bangalore. But yeh, Tiruchirappali is not so far from Blore.
@350Z: Glad you like my introduction..hehe. I have a Trek Hybrid Bicycle 7.1 Fx. I upgraded it from Hercules Neo Hybrid just recently. With work and recreational use I put around 100-150 kms on it per week. The design makes for a comfortable ride and the bike can reach fast speeds when needed. I have touched 45 kms/hr! The brakes are nothing special, but get the job done. The gears switches very smoothly. I have been using this bike for only 2 months now so I have not encountered any issues yet.
The stock saddle is not very comfortable for long rides. So I have replaced it with one from BTwin which costed me 1600. I wanted to buy Trek 7.3 Fx but I was low on cash. So I settled for 7.1. But I am happy with my decision.
