    Where is the FIAT sticker on your car? (Remember the rush to get one at the last Factory meet?) :)

    It is stuck on the roof of the car.

    @karan desai
    9 punctures in a single tyre. Wow, you must have drove a road filled with nails. Is is suggested to drive with this tyre? Isn't the integrity of the tyre already compromised?

    Or it could be used with a Tube later if it gives more trouble. Many people after stepney stage do this rather than throwing the tyre out.

    Beautiful pictures @karan desai !!
    And as many have already exclaimed about the 9 punctures, i will not :)

    Keep them coming,, i mean the pics and travelogues. Regarding your acceleration problem, did you showed it to FASS later?

    It was there in your car when we started from Kharghar.
    Clever man :D, you handed over that to Sandy and he became the victim

    puncture guy said it was a shattered glass. about the tyre i had the same fear but he assured me once the puncture is sealed its as good as a normal tyre. i would never drive with a tube in it, besides the tyres are almost new.
    thanks. since the car is running on cng now no issues. it was only during the trip as the car was on petrol. so no urgency but have to show it to the sc.

    dindigul to thekkady was just 140kms but the 4 lane highways had perished and single lane state roads had put a brake on the pace.

    reached thekkady by 2:30pm checked in the resort(had booked sterling resorts for thekady and munnar) had lunch(costly and disappointing) went for elephant safari which we could have given a miss. booked for the full day forest safari tour for the next day. which had some trekking boating and animal spotting.
    periyar forest department border.. no private vehicle can go inside the forest. we were provided with a geep in the package.
