    Today afternoon I felt too much of engine vibration, rpm was stable @900. The vibrations gone when I stopped the ac. What could be the reason?

    Car was in hot sun for 5-6hrs.

    Hey sarang, inboxed you Babar's Number.

    Ravi is good, but very unpredictable and costly. I had visited him 2-3 times and my experience is OK OK.
    Now FASS is much reliable and they go beyond their limits to fix the issue.

    On the vibration issue, nothing has been done, it got resolved by itself.
    I asked Rahul and Anil, they say might be there is some water or moisture left on the spark plugs when engine bay was washed. hence the behavior.

    I am driving it since 2 days, its smooth and no issues so far

    Good to see the Cheetah gaining the miles. How much did the oil cost? Whats that reading (0282) below the odo indicator?

    Also installed the DRL (in true sense) which turns on when the key is turned to MAR position.

    Cost
    1000 - relay kit
    720 - Phillips 100watt H1 (2Nos)
    320 - Phillips 80watt H4 (2Nos)
    900 - DRL
    -------
    2940 - TOTAL
    -------

    also replaced the head unit with used one. The current ones display was not working and was finding it difficult to change the settings . I was looking for used one and fortunately Prakash had one Sony xplode CDX-GT525U 6months used. Bought it for 2600.

    Total 5500 dent to the pocket this weekend.


    Took Cheetah for a spin on malshej ghat. The new head unit, DRLs and upgraded headlights gave all together different feeling.

    I like LOVE CARS LIVE CARs sticker and got bhp? sticker - This sticker is justifiable only on such cars :D (notice I stripped down team-bhp from there and also this sticker is hiding a scratch :D )
