I could always post a cameraphone pic in a few minutes...but thats not what we expect, is it?

Pictures updated on my gallery. They're not too scenic, but of decent quality. Will update more scenic pics at leisure.

Update for all the 'Mileage Kya Hai' queries - after one week of SANE driving (mostly cruising between 140-160, >200 on just a couple of occassions, some amount of heavy traffic) the car returns about 8.5kmpl, which compares reasonably with my old Mondy. The Mondy used to manage about 9 kmpl in similar conditions.

340bhp and 8.5kpl??
My 58bhp ikon gives the same in city with AC on and a slightly heavy foot.

And anyways, when u pay around Rs.10 per litre, u wouldn't care $hit about mileage unless it was 1 kmpl.

Update: HUGE improvement in roadholding after changing rubber to the not-so-special Bridgestone Turanza GR80 (235/45/R17 before the tyring questions start) from the older Yokohamas. I'm back on the road!

hey steeroid
me too owned a lumina ss. Though it was a 2000 make I dont think they have made any changes in terms of power and as you said its really a very very powerful car. I sold off my lumina six months ago and bought a Hummer H2. Driving a Hummer is make u feel like u own the road and the evil side of ur mind wakes up as soon as u step in.

BTW which year was your lumina bolted?

Currently I own a Hummer H2.
