Hi this is my wagonr stingray 10000 kms ownership report
Am i happy?
Looks man looks!
I can just see many eyes on road seeing stingray and look at its style and attractive red .
This is something i need to be true about, this not for any sake i fake the numbers .
In city you can make waggy to get 12kmpl or 24kmpl
Its in your driving style
In highway you can get 14kmpl to 33kmpl , yes 33
Oh ok what i get? Normally?
I get 18 solid in city
22 to 24 at highways
In hill station trip 50% hills
I got 22kmpl
So whats the story about 33kmpl?
One fine day , i forgot my purse at home, also fuel was too low.
I had to visit a company located 110kms from my place, i travelled office in a hurry and did not notice the low fuel,
Started travelling to the place in just a few kms i found there was no fuel in car and i did not have any money.
As i know a guy a petrol bunk owner, i did a fuel for 500rs, worth 70rs per liter .
I know its not sufficient, but the company i visit ill get some funds ,so in returning ill fuel it.
Started and in few kms i reached highways, kept my mid at 30kmpl and was cruising at 70kmpl till the company, i shocked to see i still got 2points of fuel from total 3points when i refuelled
The avg meter was 30kmpl ,seriously shocked .
Eventually i did not get the money from that office ,and as i know 2points is enough to return,as soon as i started and in a km fuel turned 1 point in 160kms of travel it started blinking
I was worried but i trusted my waggy , continued to pace in 30kmpl mark ,
I finally reached home with blinking fuel.must be almost empty,
It was a trip of 215kms
I know some one reading it may feel i lied, but this i needed to share it with you guys,
I did not use AC and windows where 20% down . 100% highway use.
Ok coming to engine refinement
Car after oil service and full lubrication and check up, it was a all new beast.
I tested my rev limiter first time
For service bill you can see it in two pages back.
Engine was smoother now and gave me bit more throttle response than before .
Upgrades from stock?
Infinity sprakers in box in rear and jbl cx 6.5in speakers in front door.
You are rocking the roads and your ears. Its enough for our human ear. Bass is extreme . ie. 50 % more sound and clarity than stock.
Hid , 6000k h7 kit, just a oem
swap, no cutting wires
Light output 30% more with clean spread
Interior dome light led
Car still looks new, thanks for my hands for special care, you can see my recent pictures in the thread.
Fog lamp upgrade
Led hella drl
Grill illumination better ones than stupid 2500rs accessory i paid in stingray pack.
Issues i faced
Here comes the dark part.
Door makes noise at rough roads only a little but in petrol car you hear those first
Fixed it in service. They padded my door interiors with some material, they told not to open it again so cant post pictures
Scratches in windshield, due to me, i mistakenly thought glasses wont get scratch, i used vim scrotch bite to wash it to clean insect marks, had some scratch only visible at night drive, nothing too much but can be noticed if watched well
The wheel arch had a chrome lining as a premium touch, it had a rubber padding in its edges, it started coming out,i need to get them back in every washing, finally stick them using fevicol
Met with an accident.
The reports are in thread. Links are in first page
Then, the paint quality is average, but you get what you payed for. True!
So to whar factor i recommended wagonr stingray?
Factor 1 #looks
Factor 2 #space
Factor 3 #mileage
Its a tall boy though not a race car.
A stiffened suspension will solve the problem but you wont know when its going to topple . :D
Needed to be improved?
More wider wheel base and stiffer suspension
Will make this car segment best!
