Every time any new things enter our life we are either too excited or
downright sad.But every time you dont get all the things in the whole
package and there are some points you need to sacrifice..
hmm philosophy is fun...
I was searching for a car and i test drove nearly all the premium
My comparision of the hactchbacks i drove can be found here.
why not polo?
looking at the equipment levels i was not so keen about it.
i found the design bland and the 3 pot motor was a upright no ...
icing on the cake was its price . As for me there was nothing premium
about the car other than the interiors.
Gave a call to downtown volkswagen and they blantly told he cannot
bring the car to my place and the showroom was a cool 15 kms from my
place. i dint want to risk the sparce ASS
and premium attitude of the
why not micra..
only one dealer in bangalore . and i hate the rear of this car .
and i was more interested in diesel..
MY running is low as 1000 per month or so and not a avid daily user of
the car. I use ocassionally on weekend and long trips.
for rest chaotic bangalore traffic i have my beast FZ-16.
So why diesel ?
I like diesels i just love the torque, i bought the fz(notorious for
its mileage) just for the awesome low end torque it delivers.
I have driven both petrol and diesel engines and diesel are a different
league. Modern diesel engines give a tough fight to petrol counter
Things where petrol exceeds diesel.
Silent engine ..
Happy rev till redline and no lag..
Diesel are not silent even in this age with all the tech they are no
match for the petrol engines and with all the torque they still have
I suppose the service,oil and maintenece bills ill be little pocket
heavy compared to petrols..
I am not considering the cheap diesel price and good mileage, because
of my running and premium i paid for the diesel. i would not break-even
even in 10 years..
You may be just thinking . Why doesnt he come to the point and tell us
which hell of the car did he buy..
