    The baby is born...

    I feel like a proud father. On the way home from Pandit Auto I enjoyed all the bumps, pot holes, twist and turns and one cyclist also allowed me to test the brakes... All things on the first run...

    Pics to be uploaded soon... Can you believe I'm actually taking sick leave from office to read the manuals and enjoy the ride...

    I think 'Crazy' is how my state is best defined

    Surprisingly I could't believe to have crunched almost 119 Kms on first day itself and that too city driving :)

    Thanks Ansal..!

    The best thing is I have heavily read through most of blog topics posted and everytime people referring the 'throttle' as 'accelerator' puzzled me, however after driving it I think it surely is an accelerator :). It seems the speedometer will keep turning if you dont lighten the pedal...

    The second gear may be long for some but for me its just like making the vehicle a 'Diesel Rocket'(Forgive me for quoting chevy's puncline here). The sound and feel is simply like car saying "...everybody.. better get out of my way"

    Thanks all for your wishes... :)

    The driving experience was simply :wow . The only thing which needed to be tuned in my driving was breaking. Having driven Alto I slowed on most of the potholes forgetting that the new 'biggy' just reply to potholes with only a thud (if at all) sound and makes you feel that you missed the pot hole :mrgreen:

    Most amazingly I was accompanied by another friend of mine (having swift VDi) and asked to drive the car a while. I was a bit hesitant but then gave the car to him and then kept on listening to his appraises about the drive, cornering, pickup, ABS & EBD (a dog made him break @100 km/h without car making a swing on any direction and could maneuver to save the dogs) ::OO and he was all praise for ABS few Kms.

    @Amit: I Dont drive fast its 90HP that makes me do that :oops: :D
