After countless calls and arguments with the dealer, finally the car arrived the dealership on 12th of July, exactly 2 months after booking.

The same day our very own tamilnadu government had increased 2% VAT which made me pay Rs19000 more
! After this mini-heart attack I settled the total amount on 14th morning! After registration and stuff I got a call from the dealer to take my car on 15th July 5p.m.
Filled with excitement I reached the showroom by 5 and the car was being made ready for delivery. That is the first time I got to see the car. After finishing all the formalities and stuff I was finally handed over the keys along with a box of chocolates :) The car looked stunning in black! The car almost turned everyone's head who went by!
By 6pm I left the dealership with a huge smile, and I noticed car's instrument cluster had a yellow light glowing, which reminded me that it needs some quick re-fueling. straight i went to a pump, Filled the tank fully, to my surprise the tank could only take 38.33L!(little less than 5L was still there in the tank ), as soon as i left the bunk I made trip computer reset to zero! Before reaching home I got a chance to feel the pleasure of the rocket acceleration while turbo kicking in, It was heaven :)
The same night I took it to the by-pass road next to my house for a quick trip to see the high speed behavior. The car's acceleration is just amazing, even though i dint push it to the maximum it still felt very quick. The steering was direct and weighed up well after 40kmph. The braking was good but the ride was really bouncy! Returned home after a 30km trip little unhappy because of the bounciness.
Next day I put 3M RE-35 sumfilm on the sides and rear wind shield, then I headed to fill-up nitrogen. There came the shock!! The tyre pressure was 41psi on all 4 tyres
. I then filled up nitrogen to 31psi after sucking out the air from the tyre! Then on that night I again went to same road and voila no bounciness!! It felt smooth and all the road's unevenness was soaked up well!
The mileage is decent although not that extraordinary like I was expecting! I started with a highway trip after fuel refill so it showed 18.6kmpl which gradually reduced now to 15.4 kmpl after 4 days of city driving! I will update the exact mileage after I refill the tank next time(full tank to full tank method), As of today the distance to empty shows 103kms. and I have done 496kms after fuel refill(on the day on delivery). I hope the mileage will improve over time.
On Sunday I managed to wax and polish my black beauty it just looks marvelous.
