    yes, indeed sir, its a mile mucher :)

    As suggested by @gpunto75, follow the proper run in process. Streching her to its limits could wait for sure.
    up the engine slowly and gradually ~ say after 5k rpm
    and yes, do come up with complete ownership thread with lots of pics

    cheers
    vicky.

    Now its on 2500+ km and engine sounds is improved a lot ... Recently came back from Surat ambaji trip of around 850 km ... Fuel economy is 19.7 kmpl and on express highway both sides car On 100-150. on ghat section several times gear shifting from 5 to 1 still 19.7 I feel it's decent average. No polling issue,no unexpected sound from suspension on bed road just need to check ac blower and main fan fitting mainly for mental satisfaction.
    Any advice for first service? I hope it will be there in next month only...

    generally first service doesn't include too much.
    just keep the eye on SA's that they won't ROB you on the name of ac disenfection or on the exhaust coating or something;)

    A Warm hello to you all !!!
    hope you all guys be doing well.
    Sorry for late update.

    Trip no. #33
    The much awaited punjab trip happend.
    odo that time was 38k kms. changed oil before the trip. Did total 4.5k kms.
    Drove non-stop for 18hrs on 2nd day. (bhiwara-amritsar). It was one hell of a drive. i had actually planned to do a detailed write up on this trip but am running out of time.

    Trip no. #34
    The silvassa mega meet trip. Aah! awesome it was.

    Trip no. #35
    Again to the home town rajkot.

    The current odo stands at 45700 kms. Wheels were aligned in rajkot itself at around 42k kms.

    Brake Pads : I am not actually liking these ones as intial bite lacks the feel. Will be reverting back to stock soon. Overall performance is just below average (just for the bite).

    Tyres : I was actually expecting lot but these falkens are just average IMHO. The only reason i bought was because it has 2 year unconditional warranty, thats it as i had left pulling issue and due to that tyre wear n tear was uneven. So had no choice. Every time car hit a pothole/plastic speed braker & bang, these tyres realizes me that they are working. it wasnt there with the earliar jks i had.
