You mean 'touching' cnu instead of touchy. *LOL*

Nice write up Steer. Must have been gut wrenching to let your baby go.

The real test of how good a car was is the reluctance with which the owner parts with it. My wife still sulks at the brooding hulk of the Safari in our driveway everytime we get ready to go out, wishing it were the 'sweet little Hyundai' instead...
Very nice report. I know how it feels selling off a trusted car.

My wife has the same attachment towards our old Omni. We would have never sold the Omni if not for the lack of parking space.

Hey Steeroid that was a great writeup, it was good to read and really changed my views about an Accent.

Good write up. Yeah, I know how it feels. Thats why I'm not selling the Honda at all. Just can't think of letting it go. Btw, it was bought on 1st June 2002. Offtopic though, but you got a good price for your car.

I'm not sure - this was probably my 12th car or so and I havent felt that attached to any of the others. Let's see.

@Steeroid nice review on the car, even though I don't own an Accent, but have got the opportunity to drive it several time the tornado version and man does it Vroooooooooooooom or what, it belongs to a friend of mine.....

Would you believe that it is almost 3 years now but that car has not even completed 5000 kmph.....and to be frank she is still virgin, LOL...

But I hav reved her upto around 160 kmph, and it sure was an adrelin rush or what.........

Do also share with us the experience on the Safari Dicor....115 ps...... (on its performance, handling, etc)

Nice write up Steeroid.
Selling off your babies is really painfull.
Feel the same way about our Nexia and Siena and am happy to know that the Nexia has gone into the hands of a person not lay to cars and who matter of factly enjoys them.

I can understand you almost completely man...had the same feelings when my grandpa sold our Premier Padmini...but that was when I wasnt a member of team-bhp, or else I would have written what you have posted.
That was one heck of a car...at that time...Good Luck on your new one!

Hey Rahul - good to hear from you after a long break. Its been a while since you've popped up on the site...hows the English weather treating you?

Yeah I went in for the new Safari - we've written oodles about it here:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/showth...eferrerid=1788 (Safari Common Rail Engine Launch? EDIT 010805 Now driven. Edit 190805 Now BOUGHT!!!)

its a loooooong read.

Or you can go for the shorter and obviously less involving version from Tata Motors here
