I see the car parked in the car porch of his office all through the day through out the week, I think nikkibike is smuggling something at night, how else can there be so much running ?

Why a clutch upgrade now ? I Thought u were gonna get another car by the year ends along with the Neovas too running out.

This is a Petrol-Start , LPG-Run car. I run the car till LPG tank gets emptied and then turn to petrol mode and run to the next LPG outlet.

Default Re: Swift ZXi - 3rd set of tyres - 80,000 kms UP!

Hi,
This was a nice ownership thread I enjoyed reading. But could not see any updates for quite long time. What is the current status of your swift and KMs run?

Regards,
Dinesh
