How can I say no to a fellow BHPian

My friend's figo had also accompanied my Punto to the last remaining grasslands on Bengaluru.

Now...I'll let the pictures in my next two posts do the talking.

@ Karthik,
I had seen your grasslands Pictures and they are too good.
Why don't we make the next Bangalore TBHP or Bangalore Fiat meet here?
We can take lunch at any one of the three resorts around that place?

Lovely set of pics.
the pic of the aircraft in the background would have looked more dramatic if your car had been parked the other way round. It would have created an illusion of the italian babe racing with an aircraft

Everytime i see a white Punto it whispers in a seductive voice to me "you made the wrong choice by not buying me"

Thanks guys.

@Daewood, I thought of the same thing.
If only i had the flight schedule, I would have faced my car the other way.

I will go there during the next rainy season and would like to take pictures of a "green" grassland. A family Picnic is also an option I felt.

I got two PMs asking with route queries to this place...Looking forward to see pictures of different cars in this place.

Thanks SHK8896, You have picked my favourite as your favourite.

I can assume the vehicle was at some 70-80 kmph While I took that dirt snap.
Since I was outside taking the picture, I don't know the exact speed.
I have not yet recieved the video from my friend...after that i can tell the exact speed.
From Outside, the car was looking very stable even at that speed in that road.

The figo Is my friend's. Its 4 month old diesel Titanium

After My tyre change, I was keen on the FE figures.
What has turned out is a nice FE.

Just before the tyre upgrade, the best FE I had extracted was 13kmpl
I filled fuel after emptying two tankfuls the mileage now is 12.3kmpl
The driving conditions is pretty much the same, in fact the AC usage has increased.
0.7kmpl FE compromise because of the tyre upgrade is not bad, ain't it?

No offense to Figo owners, BUT, after ogling the Punto and then seeing the Figo makes me think that it is generations behind wrt to styling!

Awesome pics Hemanth!
