Cool Hi BH-Pians, Love cars just like you do

Hi All,

My resounding hello to all of you. I have been fascinated by the threads and the discussion all along and now i think I can start to enjoy being a part of your group too.

I own a IKON and a Palio in Pune. I love cars and somehow even if my aim to ultimately go for the Octavia, I love my Ikon and palio (in order of priority).

I am a self confessed car addict, love to drive as long and as far as I can. Love to "FEEL" my cars and treat them like I would if I was allowed to have a girl friend (she stpped being one as soon as we got maried LOL)

Well, Hello again to all of you and I sure will contribute soon to this forum from my experiences and readings on CARS.

Enjoy
Amit

Arrow Engine maintenance and car care

Hey Guys,

Thanks a lot for the response to my introduction. I am truly glad to be a member of this community. In fact is there a sticker or something tht I can put on both my cars to show off Team-BHP.

Well I am sorta naive on car maintenance and some of you guys are like gurus in the lingo on car maintenance but here are the things i do for y cars, and any suggestions are welcome to make my ikon and palio go a long way:

- Washing everyday
- Dashboard polish once a month
- Car polish once a month
- Vacuum cleaning of the car once every month
- Pressure cleaning for under the car dirt, muck and debri
- timely servicing (as mentioned by the service centers)
- Unleaded petrol with petrol additives on every fill
- Air pressure check every week
- Constant paranoia on whether there is a unwanted noise from anywhere in the car or from under the bonnet

I am trying to understand how I can get more personally involved in the car maintenance stuff so i would know if something goes wrong

By the way both my cars have tubed tyres and havent given me trouble so far. i dont usually go beyond 140kmph and have many trips from Pune to Mumbai and back as well as Pune to shirdi and back - all in the same day.

Cars have been noce to me so far.

I am not sure if this is nuisance value to you guys but hey I am really wanting to take complete ownership of my cars.

I had an Maruti 800 earlier (till 1 month back before I replaced it with the Palio) and it was a god sent piece of reliable car. Never gave me below 19.5 kmpl in Pune city.

Hope the good run continues

You guys rock

Amit
