Re: Hello! New To TAI!

I am presently satisfied owner of swift vxi, ritz vxi, and mahindra xuv500.These three vehicles consume a lot of my spare time in maintaining them, which I dont regret at all.I feel they also contribute a lot in keeping me fit and active. The most beautiful thing about cleaning and maintaining your car is you get good muscles as a side effect and gym going is not required.My querie to fellow members is this, is it just me or its a fact that I find my swift2008 g3b petrol more fun to drive as compared to my ritz2010 kb series. [confused]

Thanks @saroya,I Would love to share photos of my rides with all the members ,but unfortunately most of the pics are more than 1mb size.Infact I was presently in the process of uploading the pictures when the error message popped up,reminding me to restrict the picture size.But I can still share my experiences with all of you.In brief I want to emphasize following points about my rides:

Swift petrol vxi. (2008 model) Its a wonderful machine.In comparison to the newer kb series engine, the mileage is poor,but everything else is positive.The pickup is wonderful.Engine note is pleasant.[;)]

Ritz vxi kb series.(2010 model) Its is more spacious from inside as compared to swift.The engine is very silent,and the average hovers around 15 in the city.The build quality of rits is even better than my swift.Kerb wt of ritz is more than swift.But the newer kb series engines do not prove outright pickup,which was present in earlier swifts.[:D]

Mahindra xuv500 w8(2013)This has a wonderful diesel engine.It has the best pickup amongst all the cars I have driven in my life.The pull of the engine is very very addicting.Space inside the car is massive.I just love the looks which are aggressive.In all my trips on the highways I am getting average of 18 km/litre of diesel[surprise]. What more can I ask,from this wonderful machine from Mahindra and Mahindra.
Apart from this I also have bajaj discover 125cc bike which I use for small errands.I love to drop my son to his school.on my bike.

You have to resize your pictures then you will be able to post those pictures in the forum. Download a photo editing software in your PC and resize your pics to recommended size .[;)]

First of all welcome to the most knowledgeable community and No doubt good reviews by you of your beasts but I think you should open a new thread in the ownership forum and you will see how many likes and comments you will receive in that thread [evil].
Enjoy the community with searching something new that you haven't seen or heard before [:D] because this is the only place where you can find almost everything. [cheers]

Yesterday ,all day was spent in downloading picasa 3.0 from www and trying to resize the pictures to less than 1mb.I was desperate to start my ownership thread on my xuv500.Without pics any thread will be dull and boring,so kept on trying to upload pics.Result:nil.[frustration]Maybe I am too slow on picasa software,or maybe there is no option in picasa to actually downsize the pictures.
In the meantime I was posting on the new safari storm thread.Man I love the imposing stance of the new Storm.Contrary to many others,I love the back of Storm too,since the wheel on earlier safari hindered the rear look.Now the rear looks smarter and nicely balanced.
I was wondering how come all the other members post such heavily loaded high def pictures on the threads despite of the 1mb capping.[surprise]

You can also resize using MS Paint or just download Image Compressor Tool. This link has more info: http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f...-videos-google-maps-your-posts.html#post50529.
