Surely Harsih how did the service guys endure you? I could imagine you running helter skelter with you beloved feverishly taking snaps at the same time.
Then a second thought said that Bhpians are maniacal in their own respect when it comes to their automobiles.

Rightly said , i just cannot live w/o the thought of not taking care of my ride every single day. It's this love that it returns you on long drives and every day city driving.

BTW yesterday night almost smashed the car into a Maruti van near talkatora circle when the van guy ( driver ) suddenly decided to take a left turn after giving the right indicator..i sverved my car towards left with a loud screeching sound to avoid him otherwise i would have been sitting at DD motors again today

Back from this trip. The Alto behaved extremely well with no punctures/no breakdowns/no scratches etc.

Only refuelling and filled air twice in approximately 4800 kms.

Buddy, from which seat are you taking the IRVM pic?

If the bigger RVM actually has a larger FOV (Field Of View), then, I'll also buy it.

Took it from the front seat. The view from the IRVM actually covers almost the range till the rear door windows and is very very helpful in day to day driving.

You can easy source it from any of the shops in KB. I also bought one for my father in law as even he liked the view. It also comes with a fake temp gauge..lol.

Hey , thats so nice of you. Here's the update on my car

Just clocked 100000 kms last month and currently it's at 1.02 lakh mark

Participated in 2 auto crosses ( one in Dec in Delhi and one in Jan in Chandigarh )

I will post a detailed review along with some rally performance pictures and i bet you would love them.

Please give me some time as i'm at work right now and would get free in a while.

Looks like Alto is now sold as Safari is in?

Waiting for the update and ownership report of your Tata Safari!
