Add to that, do not do any transplant of Baleno engine into the u-va but use it stock. Tough, but you should

I guess I am just too dense to understand the subject and logic of the 1st post of this thread ! I am worried that some bhpians may get "misled" about real cars and all ;-)

That is not done. How dare you forget the greatest car of all and forget the NHC. Be prepared now for the wrath of NHC owners on this thread.

See below for hints on what to use from NHC in U-VA:

  • adjustable steering
  • easily reachable indicators for right hand & wipers for left hand
  • effortless steering
  • smooth gears
  • silent cabin
all these make NHC excel in driver comfort. Can U-VA beat this?

Ritz830, Thank You!
What struck me in this most illuminating post of yours is the wealth of hitherto unknown gems of wisdom that are presented with such complete humility.
I've just started reading the thread, and right after your first post I felt compelled to first thank you.
Going back to reading the rest of it now!

Thank you Sir,
There is one problem though, I dont think i'll ever be able to overtake a UVA anyways, there are none on the roads, this part of the country.

Does this mean that most of us here dont drive a car.
Pretty bad man.

IMO, a car is a car.


and ya, dont worry i will never overtake a U-Va. ( P.s. Would never let it go in front of me)

LMAO, really. On and on and on. But I stopped laughing suddenly and got **** scared of the thought when it struck me, what sort of thread would show up when the Nano is launched. Come on folks, lets bet on it. What will it be? I'm assuming options such as Trash your bike for a Nano / Trash your Nano for a toy car (complete u-turn from this thread) / Trash your Nano for a U-VA. The voting lines are now open.

Just one thing,
Why is it that the manufacturers of CARS are bombing while the manufacturers of Newbie 4 wheelers are in the prime of their health?
GM almost bankrupt, Crystler following, Ford selling off some brands while Maruti and Hyundai are sailing through!! Maybe newbie drivers have outnumbered experienced ones!!

PS: How did I miss this thread before!!!
Now I am stuck with a newbie 4 wheeler, else I could have bought a CAR

Hmmm.

The power steering, ABS, traction control, automatic trannies, etc etc are all going to make driving easier and comfortable. Are those cars not real cars and only for newbies?

I think this is the case of buyer remorse. He probably bought a Spark and now regrets not spending extra to buy a UVA, Palio or Getz (cars he presumably likes). Which is fine, but to come in such an imposing manner as if doing us a favor by englightening us is what ticked me.

This thread should be moved to best threads section! Period.
