Default Hello

Hello Team,

I am a new member to Team BHP..I am really amazed by the amout of knowledge that I can gain being a part of the team.

I recently purchased an Exteem VXI..It has run 1300 kms now. I am planning to go for a long drive to Thissur, from bangalore. I have completed my first service in Solar Automobiles in bangalore. I wanted to know if there are any precautions / checks that i have to do before I leave for the long drive?? Thanks in advance.

And after you start, pray for your shocks, rim and tyres when you cover Krishnagiri- Dharmapuri and Valayar.

Wish you Safe Journey

Congrats on your car..

I am also a fan of Esteem...It is a reliable workhorse, no pretensions , just does what it is supposed to do , well.

After a fantastic 60,000 kms with a MPFI esteem , now have an esteem diesel.. ( Running cost - 2.1 rs / km , less than that of my Bullet 500 ! )

As a city runabout it has few competitors IMO
