    Got a replacement tyre with 65% discount as goodwill warranty from apollo tyres :) I started filling nitrogen and taking 5 mins break every 2 hours. Noticed that the tyres are hot even after doing above things. I expected them to be less hotter compared to regular air filled tyres. This was on a 450 kms trip with speeds < 110. Is this normal or Shoud I change the shop where I fill nitrogen :confused:

    I have never bothered checking tyre temperature @carl_jhonson :)

    Keep air pressure as per the recommendation and take regular breaks, no need to stop every 2 hours for sure.
    All will be fine!

    Went to Kanyakumari, Trivandrum from my hometown Madurai last weekend. Took the Nagercoil route to Trivandrum and sengottai route while coming back. The return drive was very much enjoyable as it is full of twisty roads and less traffic compared to the Nagercoil - Trivandrum route. It is a scenic route. I was very eager to take some photographs at the 13 kannara bridge with my punto. But due to ongoing roadworks there could not do so. Overall FE was 15.4 kmpl & distance covered is 638 kms.

    Today while approaching the car noticed some hose dangling under the rear right. Seen in rear left too but not very long as in the right. I have attached a pic of it. Before taking the car to FASS would like to know what it is.

    Just came back from FASS. That is the abs sensor cable. SA fixed it in 2 mins. No broken brackets/clips he told. Will check it periodically for sometime. If the cable fall from its place next time, then have to look for some permanent solution.

    Completed a dozen trips from Chennai to hometown Madurai so far. Attached is a pic taken during the last trip. The car behaves well in highway and confirms every time that my choice is indeed is a good one :joyful:

    @carl_jhonson During my last trip to Sivaganga via Melur on 13.08.2016, I had a lunch stop at Temple Inn (Trichy - Madurai side) and found a 90HP punto silver colour (Chennai Regd) parked alongside to my RED 90HP. Just wanna know if it was you? My Phone battery was dead to take a snapshot.
