Nope..i use mostly High beams . Low -beams only when there is on-coming vehicle and that too if he switches to low beam . If not , only highbeam .

The idle rpm is around 800 rpm .. So easy to drive in city traffic , but need to use only 1st gear most of the time . If i shift to 2nd and release the clutch , the car moves ahead suddenly till it reaches the 1000 rpm . I am testing fuel efficiency frequently , but i cant get the maximum possible FE as there are more truck traffic in my roads and cant drive at constant speed, due to frequent overtakes . I am also pushing her hard as i couldnt resist the temptation to feel the power and also driving at 120 kmph speed ( reaches 120kmph effortlessly) . So far i am getting 14 - 15 kmpl . Next week i will be going for a trip to Kerala , i will test the fuel efficiency that time.

djay, what is the stock tyre specs and what are the benefits of 195/60-14 Michelin PP1 5 tires w.r.t. handling, braking, ground clearance, ride quality and mileage as compared to stock tyres?
I think you are going for tubeless tyres as the stock ones are with tube.

Stock tyre specs
175/65-14 Goodyear GPS2.
Benefits of having PP1 will be explained by djay99

Girish,
Stock tires are Goodyear GPS2 175/65-14 Tube type.
Using Michelin PP1 195/60-14 tires:
-Handling will improve a lot in wet as well as dry.
-Braking distance will reduce by atleast 5% IMO.
GC will increase by 6mm.
Ride quality will be a bit harsh compared to stock tires as PP1 are sports tires.
Mileage will reduce by around 0.5kmpl

Yes i am going with tubeless tires.

I have written "Michelin PP1 5 tires". It means i am buying 5 tires and 4 alloys. Will be mounting 5th tire on stock rim.

@DJ99

Dude... I am seriously confused b/w Palio D and Getz D after TD'ing Palio. Now the extra 1 lakh rupees has become the main concern. I am not able to convince myself. I think, I may end up buying a Palio.

I came to know from the sales guy that u havent booked one yet

If you can live with Palio interiors, buy it.
Also you will have lesser resale value and service is still a problem. Thats why i ruled out palio even though its a good car.
Fiat's team was not able to make the engine smoother like what suzuki did for swift.
At the outset it may look like you are saving 1 lac. For extra 1 lac you are getting lot more.
EOD decision is yours and follow what you like.
