Good day all.

My name is Sivakumar. Got to know about this forum when I was searching for good tips on diesel driving.
I am from Chennai and just survived a hot summer.
Right from early days I was interested in automobiles. I remember watching BBC Top Gear in mid 90s (was it shown on DD?)
I am owning a Renault Duster 110PS. Having good fun with it. Previously, I used to live in Bangalore and had owned a Fiat Adventure (petrol 1.6 engine).
More than automobiles, I enjoy wild life and birds in particular and one offshoot is photography. I own two camera systems. Pentax K-x + Sigma 50-500 and Canon 7D + 100-400L.
Joining this forum to know more about cars. Like, when should I shift gears in a diesel car.
Thanks all.

I’m delighted to see a Duster owner on board. We driven it for a weekend and were left impressed. Don’t forget to share a detailed buying and ownership experience with us. :smile:

Siva welcome to TAI.

Nice to hear that you own a Duster and earlier Fiat Palio Adventure. Both of them are a beast in their own category. Do you still have the Advy with you?

Thank you all for the warm welcome.
Due to work pressure was not able to get online as often as I want.
In my opinion, the Duster is now the spiritual successor to the Fiat Adventure. At least in the ride and space (luggage and external dimensions are my priority) category.
The Adventure was a KA registered one and sold it off just a couple of weeks before my move to Chennai. The new owner is a Fiat Adventure lover so was happy it ended up in good hands.
Thanks for those links I will go through them.
