    Hi,

    Forgot to mention a few of things -

    1. Off late, I can hear the turbo whine from under the hood. It is a great feeling, the more I rev I get thrilled :) Has someone experienced this as well?

    2. Since the last 2 weeks or so, a strange "kuk" kinda noise is coming from the car. It is definitely not from the engine; I suspect from the suspension. It is very sporadic though, so when I had been to the workshop for getting the car checked the service advisor could not reproduce it. I will try it one more time.

    3. Since last week, I have got the message " Airbag Failure" during cranking 2-3 times. I think its about time to get the battery replaced. I am thinking of going with Amaron.

    Girish,

    Did you get the battery voltage checked? If the battery is unable to retain the charge, then its time to change the battery. Amaron would be a good choice.

    If the sound you hear is only on humps or potholes, then the Struds of the Suspension must have worned out..

    Ah ok, will get it checked soon. Thanks for the input :)

    I did get it checked in Jan, he said it is a bit weak but still manageable. "Jab tak chaltha hain chalao" was the reply :)
    I dont want the weak battery to hurt other parts of the car, so I think would go for a new one ASAP.

    BTW, have you got Tuscan Wine GP? I see a GP of that colour quite often on Waghbil road.
    Next time when you come across me, wave out or flash your light :) We will catch up :)

    I have BNW Punto. I am always on the lookout for a EQ 73** Punto in Waghbil, havent managed to spot you as yet. I am sure out paths will cross someday.
