Thunderbolt made a 700KM Trip to Indore.
Here are the Updates-
1>Hardly any Speed breakers in MP & roads are overall better in MP now.
Maharashtra even 4 lanes have potholes, and worse of all a few Unmarked speedbreakers that cause heavy braking.
2> Many new tolls have come up.
3> The Faulty AC made things worse. Parked car temps went up to 50.c (You can't even touch anything inside the car, We had to crank the car and let AC run at full blast for 5 min before sitting in.)
The AC only works when rear Button is engaged. and even then, Driver side Vents don;t get any cooling. I guess I need a dedicated visit to SVC for this
4> The vehicle hesitates to Cross 160. That was the most I touched. I don't know if that's me, but Acceleration seems to be affected somehow. There were 4 people in car with minimal luggage. I've got Full service done just 5k Kms earlier.'
5> The FE as per MID was between 10.8 to 11.2 KMPL
6> HID headlamps fantastic as always.
7> To beat the terrible summer heat we crammed towels on window. The Indian Jugaad for sunfilms
8> First time ever I suffered such terrible heat in Indore. The blast felt like sitting in damm oven. Even the temps at night were too high.
9> Thinking to remove Roof rack as it has never been used in 3 years.
10> Tyres Surprisingly holding up well. ODO at 54k kms.
11> Infotainment Restarted 2 times during 700kms.
12> We carried 4 small subwoofers this time. (one each on Respective 4ch AMP). The sound was pure Bliss.
