Nice pics.Did you went to Mapro Garden there?? AWESOME FOOD.
We stopped at Mapro point to buy lots of Mapro items. But didn't have food there. I heard about excellent food there.
Have you gone to Bageecha. strawberry cream and Makai pattice there is too good.(photo here http://www.teamfiat.co.in/street-travel-experience/5630-journey-land-exotic-beaches-hills-red-strawberries-punto.html#post95150)
Nope. Could not. It was downpouring & I just wanted to visit natural beauty first --> cloudy weather and hills !!
Clutch feeling hard....
Driver on leave...
Pathetic Mumbai Roads with BIG BIG potholes creating bottlenecks & huge traffic jams...
...it has been taking me 3 hours to reach home daily since last 4 days (mere 30 kms drive!!) -> Knee joints (due to clutch) & surprisingly wrist joints (frequent gear shifting) are tested beyond limits !!
Should we look for Automatic gearbox given the worsening traffic situation in Indian Cities?
Not a bad idea. When I bought Linea, my colleague bought City AT precisely because of this reason. He drove his M.I.L.'s i10 automatic and was sold on Automatic.
^While AT is definitely a major boon given our city traffic, it takes away the old-school fun of 'driving' a car. Plus, a highway drive is super fun in MT. All that downshifting to overtake and those quick gear shifts on ghats/curves is what defines highways! I shudder to think how a TJet/90HP Punto feel with AT!
Sooner or later we all will have to. But hopefully there will be better autoboxes in the C&D segment as opposed to the conventional torque converter types. Right now, i think only VW group is offering the DSG in the D segment. Toyota still has the antique CVT in the Corolla.::O
I feel for you buddy. You deffo' need an autobox for these kinda commutes.
A peculiar issue:
I changed wiper blades sometime back as wiper rubber was improper. I guess during that time, the wiper may have wiped the windshield with damaged rubber creating scratches on windshield. This is more on passenger side where there was a problem with wiper rubber. There is a long arc (scratch) outlining the path of passenger side wiper on windshield. Last time when I sent the car to TASS, they quoted about Rs. 400 - 500 for removing these scratches. I was not sure that time and hence did not get it done.
What are the alternatives of removing such scratches from windshield?
This issue is not major as there is no issue in driving the car. It'd just that if the cost is < Rs. 500, I'll get it done.
