I am not impressed by this website.

AutoIndia as a mag was very good in the yesteryears.

Thought it would be something like www.indiacar.com (not the messageboard but as a site). Then i saw it and it looked infinetely better.
Then i went to comparisions B/W Baleno, Petra, Ikon 1.6.
It was here i realised that T-BHP is still the best (not that i ever doubted it) and try as much as they can, they can't beat a FORUM like ours.

The beginning was quite cool of the comparo -
For tyres and wheels, they had two parts, one for the tyres and other or wheels.
Now the Petra's dimension was mentioned properly (5.0B X 14) while for the Ikon and Baleno VXi the mentioned the tyre size (175/60/R14 type of things) which was kinda confusing.
For tyres, the mentioned the specification of the Petra's tyres while the Baleno had a dash and the Ikon had this mentioned -
14" wheels with imported wheel ...
I was like WTF???

Next was Suspension. They ran out of space writing the specifiaction for the Petra while the Baleno's and Ikon's description was just a sentence.

Everything else was very much messed up as you can imagine but what caught my attention was the Safety specs where the Baleno came with ABS.
Now that was bull****.
This site just sucks. So far, there is no competition for T-BHP.

.
Can we have an overview of site we can enter the forums and the main page would be like containing editorial matter given by the mods giving all specs rather than the current form though this is good
changes can be radical
correct me if i am wrong
