    I wanted to do that while I took the delivery, but then thought, it doesn't look bad either.

    Also, these mirrors are painted black unlike the ones in Active Variant, so it seems like a 90HP or Sport variant symbol :D

    Also, a lot of them suggested me to paint the grille black, but I dint go by that coz Emotion variants are distinguished by grey grille ;)

    Also, saving up bit money for all the visual mods. In early 2014 insha Allah :)

    So, clocked 3000kms in a span of 2 months and loving every bit of it.

    Only concerns I have now are :

    1. Rattles all over the car when it moves over rough patches of road or over a speed breaker.

    2. The doors are still hard to close, there is Thud effect when closed but not like the other cars in which it closes effortlessly.

    3. Dashboard and plastic panel already seems to have started losing its color.

    Hope i get these resolved at my 1st service which am planning during first week of May :)

    Update: Since the tank was almost empty, thought of re-fuelling at Shell near my place.

    Did a tank full and I notice drastic difference in the drive feel and engine noise. Performance remains same though.

    Will get a feel of it at tomorrow's TFI meet :)

    @ Imranshks

    You refilled & you got differance in engine noise?

    What happened actually?
    Does clatery sound of engine at idle rpm disappeared? If engine is running with less clatter at idle rpm like petrol engine then you got extreme bad fuel.

    On genuine quality diesel, MJD gives wafer-crisp engine noise

    Tunning of MJD is such a way that it reacts very quickly to bad fuel.

    @bhai that uneven clatter has disappeared. Now the engine note is perfect..

    Undoubtedly, shell diesel is the best and also expensive, Rs. 61/ltr whereas ordinary is 54/ltr

    Going to kanva reservoir tomorrow. Shall update about the mileage n performance too :thumbup:

    Odo clocked 4350 kms and the time for 1st service is nearing.

    However considering the number of vehicles Vecto Motors is dealing with, I called them in 3rd week of April and got a service slot for May 3rd as I am planning to travel after May 10th.

    So far the ride has been great, filling shell diesel since last month and the performance is just awesome :thumbup:

    There are a few minor issues that need to fixed and am hoping that Vecto Motors will be able to do so.

    Next update after the service shall be posted :)
