    We have done Tirupati trip when odo was at 3500 KM (2 months old). Now my odo is at 18000 KM (and 1 year) without any problem. For precaution take small breaks and enjoy your ride :)

    A 120 kmph once in a while doesnt do any harm. I have revved until I heard the "speed limit exceeded" beep when my car had just done some 300kms. The speed limit was set at 120 kmph as factory default. After seeing that warning, I reset it to 100kmph until we covered 1000kms.

    Amar, you will find lots of Kamat's hotel on NH4.

    Take a break after 100 or 150km as per your convenience.

    Keep your camera with you but if you are driving then please don't use it. Use it on your 100km breaks.

    Don't try to touch 120 as a bench mark. Keep 100kmph for your confidence on car as well as on road. And on NH4 you can able to maintain this speed for longer time.

    Also due to this you can get your car's fuel economy too....

    Drive safely...& post your travelogue... :)

    In recent lonavala trip we were cruising at speed 160 KMPH on expressway. Definitely this is not recommended speed so better to stick between 90 t0 100 KMPH
