Nice to know that your are crunching miles day by day.
How has been your experience with the MRF tyres. How about the road noise and handling?

did wheel alignment toay.cost Rs 600/. MRF tyres are good. i had upsized to 195/65 R 15 so the ride is a bit on the harder side when compared to the appolo acceleres. no much noice fom the tyre though. handling i can't find any difference though as there are no much roads where i can take her to 3digit speeds for long periods.

My appolos are around 20k kms and I can notice higher road noise these days. What can be a solution to the noise apart from changing them?

completed 50k kms today. took her to the ass at kannur for a general check up as iam planning on a long drive....to chennai. i had noticed some oil leaking on to the top of the engine. rectified it. the steering has become some what tight, the service guy told me that he would need the car for 2 days so postponed it to after my chennai trip.

mates wonder of wonders[surprise][surprise] - i had parked my car at my friends house after getting it started. yesterday morning when he cranked it, it fired to life. again today it started. i have brought it back home and will have the battery checked at my friends garage tomorrow. i think i might have simply drained the battery by unknowingly keeping some component on.
