Welcome aboard, TDR.

We all love Marutis for their engines, whether it is the Maruti 800, Alto, Esteem (Earlier model of Swift), Baleno, or the new Swift!

OT: I will be in Amsterdam in less than a week. Good to know that the roads are great there. Hope I can drive there with an Indian driving licence

TDR, welcome to TBHP.
I had Maruti Zen (Suzuki Alto MK III) in carb version from 1997 to 2004. It was a peppy car. During it's time it was a dream car for many young car freaks like me. I believe none of the cars in it's group couple replace it from our hearts.

I remember this car won quite a few awards in Europe in late ninties.

@Jeep,

please contact the Dutch Embassy in India, found here;
http://india.nlembassy.org/homepage

(you might need to click on "English" in the right top corner).

They can help you with your question. For residents of certain countries an
International Driver Licence is needed here.

Welcome to T-BHP TDR,

Glad to see that the Zen is popular in Europe as well. Always lusted for a Zen Carbon, but everyone here dissuaded me from buying a 3 door hatch. But, its a great car, built for speed.

All I can say is that you couldn't have registered at a place better than Team-BHP. I wonder whether there is anyone out here who is not a fan of the Zen (Alto Mk III).

This might sound a bit weird for a European, but it's the Zen which taught us Indians what performance is all about, in its heydays. In the hands of a good tuner, this car can teach other cars a thing or two about performance and handling.

It has been and still is every boy racer's dream. When it comes to mods, the Zen has seen it all, in India. Every possible visual and performance modification has been experimented on the Zen. Bodykits, engine swaps, NOS conversions, turbo-charging and so on....

The Zen is no more in production and is now replaced by a breadbox named Zen Estilo (a restyled Suzuki MR-Wagon).

I hope you regularly visit this forum.
