Oh, that is nothing exceptional. As the accountants will tell you, a part of the cost of the car is written off every year (20%), and I usually get to gift myself a new car after 4-5 years. That time has come, so, like you, I'll bid a sorrowful goodbye to my CRDi soon too. It had been great fun over the last 55 months and 100,000 km, and is the most trouble-free car I've owned yet.

Incidentally, I came across an old thread of yours where you were attempting to clean out the PCSVs with acid and kerosene. That was quite an adventurous bit of DIY if I might say so.

And congratulations on your new acquisition of the i20 Asta CRDi. It's a lovely car.

Abhi sorry to see your Viva go. Being a Viva Owner, i can understand the pain of losing this beauty.

Mine will be 3 years in Oct'09 and has done 43K kms till now and even till date it feels like its new and seeing the exterior people comment it looks like its just out of showroom.

Sorry to see you let it go to a used car showroom ( those guys use and abuse vehicles). Would love to know when you bought, how many kms it did and for how much you sold it. If you wouldn't like to share in public, even a PM would do fine

Finally, congrats on the i20. Shift from one tourqey car to another..eh?
