Your bangalore plans and my drive plans are getting postponed. My car is stuck at 12900 kms and just 2 months to go for its 1st birthday.

My plans to change its tyres and alloys are also on hold as I'm changing jobs and need the cash till next salary comes in Aug. Did a Yelagiri drive last weekend and the vibes are still present above 120 kmph. Seems like a flatspot issue; after the skid before accident; as balancing and rotating tyres had no effect.

I definitely have a B'lore drive planned in July - probably first / second weekend.

Back to my rocket's pampering, I had a few crow droppings () on the top and the hood yesterday, and couldn't wipe it immediately. Even after 3 -4 hours of delay, the gooey came right off with a wet tissue - not a trace! Guess the paint protection is working pretty good!

I gotta have my front windscreen undergo the nano coating / anti glare treatment - there is a wiper mark, and some small scratches too... next month!

Phoneix, First congrats on your engagement. Your black beauty is gleaming after all the treatments that you gave her.

Nice to hear that the money spent on paint protection is well worth it.

Thanks mate!! I would recommend all dark coloured cars (more so for Black) to go through this.

Wow the car is shining. Must do this to my black Swift one of these days.
In one of the photos it looks like they are cleaning the engine bay with high pressure water. Is this advisable?

Cross posting from my ICE suggestion thread.

This rocket is going to see a slow yet not-so-succinct ICE reform- the first glimpse:
