Got KANGLANG door visors installed. The main purpose for me was to be able to lower the windows a little bit to get rid of heat without anybody noticing the windows. The color of these are smoke grey , would have been better if it was completely black. Still quality and looks are much better than other brands. It also has locks for better grip. Paid 1800rs.

Sad Update. Two kids decided to use my car as their canvas. The right side fender and the bonnet [frustration]

Don't park your car near a tea vendor , clothes ironing guy etc. I did and you see what can happen. I am relieved that they didn't vandalise the headlight.

Car's closing in the 10k mark.
I love looking at the car from this angle[:D]

Oopss. Sorry to see this. This pains a lot to see a pampered car getting vandalized. Were these too deep or just clear coat scratches? Did you do anything about these scratches?

Otherwise, how is the car aging?

They fender one isn't that bad but the bonnet has deep scratches and easily visible.

Car is smooth to drive , the only problem I am getting from day one is slotting into the reverse gear.

Was out of town for a week and car was parked in the open. Came back and faced this issue.

I knew it was the brake pad touching the disc. Gave the car to SC and collected the car next day, they cleaned the brakes and did caliper greasing. All's well now.

My Figo escorting.

This guy reversed the car without even looking. Don't know how people drive like this. Damaged the bumper as well as the number plate. I was honking like crazy when he was reversing. Didn't even apologised after this. Moron.

Oh, that's very bad. No apology from him, does that mean he drove away after scratching your car's bumper ?

Since that guy hit your car, You have the right to demand for damages, but if the guy drove away then nothing can be done.!

I think you were in his blind spot. Horn is useless IMO . Unfortunate and annoying that such slow speed can scratch car so much

@ nairik $ vishnu - he's a neighbor , don't wanted to say anything to him. after getting out i literally said " aren't you ashamed , can't even say sorry" he ignored that also. i guess he thought i might ask him for money but there's no point in arguing.

@kimi - there's no such thing as a blind spot while reversing. you have to have to look at all three mirrors while reversing.

so my saved my brezza just now from having the same fate as the elantra. 2 idiots in one day.

he was on his phone , headlights off. my wife alerted me and then i slammed the brakes. even if his headlights were on i would have taken precaution. anyways what do i get when i signaled him what he's doing , he signaled " go ahead , get lost"
i was right not saying anything to the honda city guy. you will just meet a new idiot on the road.
