Woah! Thanks funkykar and GreenDay. I think I'll go with a used WagonR or Santro for sometime and when I get my next promotion...I'll restore the 118. Guess I should get used to owning a car first and learning a thing or two about it. BTW, I spoke to my brother who's in Bhopal to check it out and have also told him to take care of it as I might give it another life in a year's time.

Spotted a Stock Machine near Gullu's on Saturday.

The car was Neatly maintained, no modifications apart from a simple music system, it flaunted the original wheel cap and also the quarter guard as well.

Sorry about the Poor Quality pic :-(

Hey all!

Do we we have a similar 118 NE club in Pune? If yes, can some one please direct me to that forum post?

Though I do not own a 118 NE right now, but plan to purchase one very soon.

Cheers!

Dear Folks,

My dikkie is creating a problem. It keeps opening up. It just does not close for long. when i go on some speed breaker or some rough patch, it opens up. this is very frustrating because i need to keep on getting out and shutting it. somebody please offer some foolproof advise.

Thanks
AJ

Given that the Dickey lock assembly is good, it may just need to be set correctly. I have faced this issue myself and seen on a few other NEs. The door setters who have worked on the NE's before would be able to set it right in 5-10 minutes.

Found This Modified NE in Chintamani. Inspired from Merc.

Special thing about this car is: actually used to bring patients to the Hospital. Does the work of a Ambulance, But not an Ambulance.

The mods done are terrible on this. I assume some guy modded and used it for a while, then sold to a doctor at a throw away price. Whatever it is, instead of heading to junkyard, it is saving lives

This is a car that belonged to my friend's father, it was sold to someone he knew recently due to parking space issues. It has enjoyed extremely good care and I would really love to have that car but for parking issues. And yes it is all stock and original, it has a manual water sprayer for the wash wipe. The trunk had a problem and would spring open on its own sometimes.

Unhappy Re: 118 NE Club Bengaluru [NECB]

Hi Dear friends,

I am facing a starting problem with my 1996 NE. the deal is that the water pump was spoilt (engine was overheating), so i bought a new Mikoni water pump from JC road and got it fixed. the mechanic charged about 500 bucks for fixing it, the pump itself costed 600 bucks. now even though the battery is pretty charged up, the car doesnt start, only cranks meekly. Two things i ask from you all :

1. is this a battery problem? Because the horn blows pretty hard & the headlights are strong enough (so battery must be good), but it seems the battery is not enough to crank up the car. Is this possible?

2. Secondly, the fan in front of the engine (the faded red fan), should it be tight? I mean should it be free enough to be rotated by the hand? Because the fan seems pretty tight, and i was wondering if this tightness has got anything to do with the engine starting, you know like the battery getting strained to rotate the fan? My uncle told me that the starting of the car has nothing to do with the rotation of the fan.

I seek your experiental advise/wisdom on this folks. Please let me know.

Regards,
AJ

I had never sat in a 118 NE until recently, let alone driving it. I donít hail from a car family. Neither did any friends of mine during college had cars. My knowledge about cars was literally nil. After I got into my 2nd job in around 2002, I sniffed a possibility of buying a car. OF course I was eyeing for a 118 NE. I was on a mad hunt for an excellent 118 NE. I couldn't really find one as I did not know how to look for a good one. If NE had more than one owner, I rejected. If it looked dirty, I rejected. Even my friends couldnít identify a good one due to lack of knowledge. Once friend had a NE at their home. It appeared excellent. With lot of courage and hesitation, I approached his dad asking if he is willing to sell. He literally got mad at me and shouted he would never sell and dare not to ask him again. Later, my family forced me to buy a new Maruti 800. I just gave up on finding the 118 NE.


Finally couple of years ago, the same friends father called me one fine day and asked if I wanted the NE. A few years before that day, they had stopped using as they had too many cars at their home. My mouth was just watering, head spinning in excitement. Without any hesitation, I said yes yes yes. He said, he is not selling it to me, but giving it to me just like that. Only condition being, any day I feel I donít want it, I have to return it. Then it was over to my friend. He explained me that it was parked elsewhere and wasnít used for more than a couple of years. HE said he will get it to running condition and then give it to me. This was a hell of a wait. The garages that used to service their NE werenít anymore ready to work on this car. With great difficulty he managed to find some garage and the required parts, fixed the car and gave it to me. All this took 3 long months. I felt as if it were 3 long years.


To be continued...

Awesome love this thread. I would love to be there the next time you guys meet. I currently don't have a running car but I will fix that soon enough.
