As far as traffic is concerned, the best thing to do would be to ignore it as somethings never change.

Looking forward to see you more often on the forum.

All the best form another lady member of this forum.

Interesting signature but 5 years of marriage and an equally old car, I still open the doors for my wife. She refuses to get down if I don't! But yes, you need to butter and wax both respectively for optimum performance

this is like hijacking Uma's thread, but many thanks for the observation, Vivek.

Women always like chivalry. ;-)

Thank you manaa45, Blue Thunder, mjothi, Randhawa, roadracer, headers, SILVERWOOD, ghodlur, KeativeGeek, ferrariKSA, Ponmayilal, Utopian, hillram, bkbkr1212, Reisender, garry.brant, AlokSriva.
I feel truly humbled. Thank you!

Mine is an i10 manual. I was keen on A/T but had to settle for M/T. First off, there are not many auto cars in the 5-6 L segment, if I am not wrong. The only A/T vehicle I test drove was not able to rev that well. Maybe, I should have driven an A/T from another dealer. Initially, I was against the shape of i10 too. I really hate those Korean eyed headlamps. So I decided against the only Auto vehicle in my list.

After test driving Figo (unethusiastic sales people), VW Polo (noisy engine and the sales person said it is the same with all sports cars), Swift Zxi (impressive but takes more than 3 months for delivery), i10 M/T (nice but weird ugly headlamps), i10 A/T (struggling to rev quick), I decided to go for i10 M/T mainly for the number of features that were offered for that low a price. As days go by, he (do cars have to be female always?) will start looking handsome to me.

P.S: The comments about cars here are just my opinion and they may be false. After all, this is a neophyte's experience.

Wow, you write about cars somewhat like a petrolhead!
Congrats on the new car.
