That's nice of you @dot, my pleasure.

I always keep an eye on the Pune meet thread, but could never make it due some or the other reason.

Let me know if you are free coming sat/sun, we can meet, and with the current weather of Pune - drizzling all the time, we can have some garam samosa and garam jalebi. There is a shop which makes this samosa and jalebis quite good and fresh and I can bring these for the meet

Same applies to me for attending the Pune meet; I could never make it till date.
Guys, let me know your meet schedule; I am willing to join you guys.
Anyway, I have to meet mdsaab also and his new glittering car :-)

A small correction is called for here. The wife TDed and finalised the Nano for herself ensuring that I didnt poke my nose in the topic. I was shortlisted for the PDI and delivery as she wanted me to enjoy the famed Pandit Auto experience (and also as I was the only person who no one would miss either at work or school). So technically I brought (as against bought) the Nano home.
Aah, the joys of technicalities

bon voyage et a bientot!

@dot-thanks for your loving words. I am thoroughly flattered.I would love to- please do PM me when you come to Cochin next time.

The City, meanwhile is doing a faithful job. Problem is- I don't want to drive my i10 even to the ATM!!

What all has been going on! Bromance, meet discussions, jalebis and Samosa's. Man this thread is one hot thread.
I happened to mention the Nano story to my wife too. Needless to say, all was not well after that. Bala, you are responsible for ruining the peace treaty in my house!
Dotty, when do you leave? Lets plan a meet before that.

Yes the FM transmitter was from Ramesh bhai. He charged a little premium over the price I saw in the car accessory shop next to your home. But hey, had he not vouched for it, I would have never bought it. So the little premium is justified. Noops, you can borrow mine for the next few weeks in case you need. This thing has a semi-flexible (or semi-rigid, if you look in another way) stem so it can be moved around; may not obstruct the gear lever.

Friends, after Jealousdiamond's pep talk, I am thinking of installing a sub. Having installed the sound dampeners on the front doors, the music quality of the stock system has improved so much that I dont feel the need of changing the system. However low end bass is missing. Hence the sub.

So the line from rear speakers will be taken to a line out converter. From there to a two channel amp which will power a small sub. The rear speakers will still be operational by a pass-through from the amp. I am thinking of Rockford Fosgate Prime 150 2 channel amp. Sub can be a 1000w, which can be decided later. Need your suggestions.

Ok chalo we shall let Ramesh Bhai get away with it this time.
But next time he charges a premium you definately let him know.
Letting him go because of the fantastic job he did on the VTEC indicator.

Hey Dot,
Heartiest congrats on your promotion :-)
Was so engrossed with my car that I did not find the time.

Hope someday I get the patience and perseverance you have. Kudos buddy.

Cheers

Guys, as much as I would have loved to meet all of you, if looks very far stretched now. However all of you should meet to check out mdsaab's glittering new baby (actually his dad's baby, which makes the car his brother...interesting).
I will wait for the pictures.

You have shelved the i10, mdsaab has shelved his Civic. What is this City doing to all of you?

Thanks dude. Eagerly waiting for news on the rust treatment front. Regarding p&p, you can say that I had lots of "vela" time.

Absolutely. He is a great guy and I dont mind paying for great service. As you know, I was just speaking to him. He has agreed to install whatever ICE enhancements I can bring back. Not only that, he has suggested what all to buy, to couple with the OEM HU!

You may be able to get those red mugen Honda badges from there. And if you manage too. Do remember this mere mortal also known as mdsaab.
Have a safe and pleasant journey. And a great time there.

Too good.

Especially with the auto 'box. While driving my i10 occasionally-sometimes I hear strange racing noise from the engine with no acceleration. Only to realize that I had forget to change the gears-still on 1st gear

Too pampered with the Auto ANHC.

Hope the honey moon will last.

The perils of being an AT convert! On the Lavasa trip last weekend, every time we completed a hairpin bend, I would reach for the gearshift and do an imaginary downshift to second gear. The second time I did it, the missus caught it and we had a hearty chuckle over it!

Dot I'm going to advice you not to go for that. If your upgrading then upgrade properly. After you upgrade the sub you will find after sometime that the bass is too much, and then you will want to upgrade the speakers too. But since you would have bought only a 2 channel amp you will have to buy another one.

What I suggest is that you get a powerful 4 channel amp, like the Focal Solid 4. Upgrade your front compos, and get a sub. I think you are planning on keeping the car for a while, so it makes sense. What say?

@noopster- nice to note that I am not lone in the boat The first time my wife drove the Auto(that too after a gap of 1.5 years),after stopping the car in traffic,she brought the gear lever promptly to "1st gear" position(P!!) and I had to prod her each time-being no expert myself.
