    You know what? On the second day of this trip, I sneaked out without others knowledge at around 8:30PM and came till 10th harpin-bend and went back :)



    I think they are happy with the engine sales. See, S-Cross brings the 1.6 MJD but no signs of it from Fiat. Looks like even Ciaz will get this 1.6 motor.

    Haha! Thats true mate. MJD rocks!

    Yes. But that stretch of road helped as well. Normally, I get around 18-20 on the highway. It really gets boring to drive for FE, So I never try that. There are times when I decide to drive for FE and after 20-30 Kms I just start pushing and ignore the FE thing.

    I am back from a 1700 Kms trip during the weekend, and this drive was to participate in HVK Monsoon Drive - 2015. It was a superb drive and one of the best till date, I would say. This drive included all kind of roads including some off-roading as well. And as the title of this drive says, it rained almost all through the drive and I enjoyed it to the core. thumbs%20up.gif

    Route: Bangalore - Panchgani(MH) - 120Kms around Panchgani - Panchgani - Bangalore.
    Total Kms: 1706.1 Kms. ODO is inching closer to 55K.
    I will add more details later.

    I loved this look of the car biggrin.gif

    Arun you are simply unstoppable buddy. The car looks like a rally car by all means. I know you love your drives but every update from you turns me green with envy .

    Keep those pics and drives coming, in the meanwhile I will try to neutralize my color .

    Cheers,

    Arun,

    You took time after the wash to goto the same place, position the car in the same way and click pictures. Your love / craziness for the car is commendable.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep

    I loved that dirty look:D

    Haha..I didn't plan this initially. It was only after seeing the difference after the wash, I decided to take a pic from the same location.
