    Great. New shoes for the queen. Do write about experience on road noise etc... :) Was there any specific reason for clutch failure?

    Well, immediately after changing tyres I went for a spin on Western Express Highway (Mumbai). It was just a short drive for about 5-6 kms. The noise seems to be lesser than earlier, Ride & Handling also seems to be better. But then it's too early to say & I have to take the car on a "proper" highway drive to gauge it. Also, since last 3-4 months, because of the worn out bald tyres, the noise was much higher and Ride & Handling was also much affected. Even steering movement seems much smoother & more precise. But as I said I'll have to wait for a long drive to pass any judgement. Initial signs are very promising.

    About clutch, do not know what happened. It burnt 3-4 months back as I mentioned in this thread previously.

    Paraflu UP coolant is available as spare from the counter in Concorde Motors, Bangalore. My Linea has a spare coolant can in the boot.

    1st impression of BS Ptenza GIII - Noise reduction only a bit as compared to good old GoodYear GT3

    Good. Very good. At least till now. But then it has to be.

    Also, while I was getting tyres changed at the shop, a guy with his ANHC came in for puncture. When I asked the guy just to confirm that its BS Ptenza GIII, the ANHC guy said excellent tyres, if you are a performance freal who loves the zoooooooooommmmmmm growl / note, GTIII is THE tyre. He said he had it earlier in his earlier car. In his ANHC hew now has Micheline. I asked Micheline should have been silent. He says no, it still gives him a kick while revving on WE Highway with it's aeroplane like zooommmm sound !!!;)

    I have used Potenza, i was not impressed by the noise and the ride quality of it. Michelin are in different league in these area. But if your happy that all it matters :)
