i too had this experience, while cruising definitely the rpm sticks to one particular level. for ex: during my GQ @ 120kph the rpm was @ 2100-2200.

Well can this be because of unsettled RPM "needle" while accelerating?!?! And more stable one when cruising?

I guess still the actual RPM of the engine will be constant w.r.t speed.

Congrats HP for your new car. The phenomenon that you experience of your car lurching forward is due to torque at lower rpms/speeds so you needn't step on the gas to make the car move forward. You will get used to it in a few days and then you can enjoy its torque, come to think of it, thats what every first time diesel drivers notice

I got the Minda System installed. IMO, get any kit from reputed compnay like autocop, Minda, Nippon and Xenos. They are all equally good. Though one or two units of any manufacturer may come out faulty, they are usually reliable. Go for one which is giving you life time warranty. In my case, situation was such that I had to choose by the looks of remote control. Features of all are almost same for price band.

There is also a thread going on on same topic : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...s-autocop.html

Lurching forward.... yes, it does really want to go, in first gear, with no foot on the accelerator at all.

I find it means a lot of clutch control when I have to go really slow, like very rough roads and roads with more people than cars.

BTW... at 2 weeks and about 385Km it is beginning to sound like a diesel. Most noticeable when accelerating around 40Kph.

not a sarcastic one

engine has smoothened up quite a bit revs are picking up real fast (remember me redlining, well most of the times in 1st and 2nd its unknowingly done and you will be reminded with screech from wheels yes even with 195 tyres), sound at idle is less penetrating, pitter patter also has come down quite a bit from the first 100 kms.

this is my first diesel ownership experience from 0 km so can feel the slow transition, ok for me it was rather quick having done 4100 km till date.

surprisingly smoking hasnt changed either (was worried if ill start spewing when i floor) again i clean inner area (tips only) of the exhaust pipe and with my kind of driving in city doesnt collect much soot over a weeks drive

this...gives a good feeling now . I just took it in the other way with your initial comment . I was worried that after 5000kms the typical diesel sound would creep into the engine.

so far I have done 1700 kms, definitely i felt the difference after the first service. the initial complaint i had with the engine sound which appears after the 2 to 3rd gear transition has smoothened.
