Could be off topic..but I wanted your views!!!
The Magnum has a turbocharger and a compression ratio of over 15:1 (I'm guessing), and it runs on diesel. So there's really no point comparing.

Optra has a lower centre of gravity, so ideally it should corner better than the Cedia.

May in terms of chasis...Cedia is rally bred ...so it should be stiffer and make a difference in the corners....
It isn't just CG that matters. Front and rear track, wheelbase, suspension setup, all play a major role. You'd be surprised what a good suspension setup would do to the handling of a car.

You praise the tyres so much. And you didnt even tell the nice people where you got it from .

Mitsu gave you a 6000/- voucher..... Who knows what you might get from us ??

j/k.

And BTW, nice write up... These are the kinds of threads that make me wish I was more regular on t-bhp.

So does this mean we can all show up and get tyres at cost price?

Add the cost of shipping and you might as well buy them in Madras

Buy MRF. Chaos recommends it over most other tyres (Except his PP2s)

PS: Nikhly doesnt sound as good as Baatli ... lol..

There are lot of people out here who want to buy Cedia, can't afford 10L but can afford 8L?
I would even recommend if one can stretch a little 8+, consider SX4 or any car with better safety that without. There is a lot of debate around ABS but airbags are a must.

If 9+ Cedia is anyways a good choice !

thanks....but that was nothing to be honest....

I would have preferred taking you to my dad's shop (Madhus Enterprises) on Langford Road. But that is an exclusive MRF showroom and they would have to get the tyres from Tyre Professionals anyway.... so, it made sense to come to the source

Who says you are getting free tyres ??

PS: Also, the double road shop has Nitrogen inflation...whatever tyre you buy, they fill Nitrogen and not normal pressurised air.

Got first service done on my Cedia. General checkup and top-up of engine oil, brake fluids, etc.

Also, got the front grill painted black at the dealership itself. Had two options of metallic jet black or dull black. Chose the former.

Looks great now as compared to body colored grill.

Car to Car... I believe the Magnum is way better...

1. Performance: The Tcdi is great, period. The torque in Magnum is 80% more than the Cedia.
2. Space: The two are comparable. The rear seats are more comfortable on the Magnum.
3. Ride: Optra has a better ride - plush is the word. Of course, this means handling is compromised.
4. FE: As per Autocar, Magnum delivers 11.5kmpl in city against the 10kmpl of Cedia. If the Diesel:Petrol difference is offset, the Magnum delivers a whooping 16.3kmpl against the 10kmpl of Cedia (in city conditions).
5. Interiors: Personally I believe the layout of Cedia dashboard is way more elegant than the Magnum dashboard. In particular, the depth of the dash, the three tone works, AC vents layout and overall beige interiors are better on the Cedia.

I also have been seing the add of NHC with safety additions.
If they have added 60K to the OTR then its crazy !!

But the Honda branding is soo strong that people are truely carried away with it. A friend of mine who has been owning cars since the Fiat Premier Padmini days can only say "Honda is Honda", "They are the best" etc etc.

However, there are entusiast friends of mine who like it the other way and realise the value in CEDIA.

Guys, saw a black Cedia Sports on Old Madras Road yesterday evening with a K.R Puram Registration. Looked hot! It was nice and a rare sight to see another Cedia on the road besides mine. Wonder if the owner is a BHPian!
