    This happens only in India:


    Not sure if I should be happy about the proactive update by BTP, or saddened by the pathetic state of our infrastructure.

    All these years i had been avoiding test driving a Linea Tjet,as i thought,i would lose interest in my MJD.
    Few days back i thought why not,so,took a TD of a Tjet Emotion with 127kms(H) on odo for about 35-40kms on a Open Highway.
    And to be honest,i was disappointed,may be because my expectations were too high from it.
    My Linea is a 87PS one,and i just love the way she pulls from 100-160 in 5th gear,the Tjet was no different,the performance was almost similar,even if it was faster,it was not noticeable.Pushed her till 165-170,and the power felt similar to my MJD.Though the first two gear ratios were pretty good as compared to my MJD.
    Pretty sure Tjet would be faster than the MJD post 160,but till that speed it didnt feel special.
    May be it felt slow as the engine was pretty new.Will take a TD on same car after she clocks a few thousand kms on its odo.

    Wait for the 1.6 :)

    100+ is the natural strong band for the 1248 cc little monster.

    Akshay, even I had similar feelings after a TD of the new Jet. What makes it even worse, atleast for me is that the new Jet is linear in power delivery. Read no prominent turbo kick. And yes, I too went for the TD with over expectations.

    But she was smooth and silky. And gearshifts were better. I am a fan of that car anyway.

    I refrained from posting this then as I feared I may stir up a hornet's nest. ;)

    It has been several days old, 100 kms long. They call this a jam?


    Looks like they have never seen this:
