Hey guys I am back with few updates about my car!
Firstly its been long since i posted here as i was in USA for the past 10 months just returned back home. Mean time my dad and brother were using the car.
The black beauty has done 15700kms and it was her 1st birthday on 15th july. completed its 2nd free service on May 28th at 9950kms and i drove almost 5000kms in 1.5months..
Fuel economy has become alot better. I have never seen anything less than 15kmpl during city driving. Even during highway driving at extreme speeds with frequent pedal to the metal driving [CHENNAI-TIRCHY-CHENNAI] , it was quite awesome. Believe it or not Tirchy to chennai 330kms i did it in flat 3 hrs 20 mins where i did stretches of 170kmph for a min or so. I dint see the FE meter till i reached home guess what it showed 15.5 kmpl. The car never felt out of control, felt very planted! Extremely confidence inspiring. I even had to brake really hard and i could feel the ABS kicking in even on the normal road surface, still never did i feel that i would lose control. The way it takes off from 90kmph to 150+kmph in the 5th gear nothing can match!
Chennai to tirchy was a simple normal drive in about 5 hrs which gave a 19.2kmpl.. Throughout the journey from chennai to tirchy i never floored the pedal, I was very smooth on my driving.
While I wasn't in India my brother had given my car 2 huge dents, broke the rear tail light,had in-numerous no. of scratches! I was really heart broken to see my car in this condition.! I took it to the body shop, claimed the insurance and repaired all the dents replaced the rear taillight!
Another huge problem is the under body damages! there is a plastic cover that covers the engine under-body! It just got so badly hit and was torn apart damaging the AC hose!
had to replace the AC hose pipe before it started leaking! The service center dint have the plastic cover to replace so its left open as of now!
attached few pics of my car's AUTOFORM seat cover bought from JEEwaJEE car decor in Annanagar chennai in August 2011.
