Congrats Vikram & all those involved in the build. Nice to know that after doing 2500 kms you are satisfied with the performance & the car is without niggles.

I really wish this kind of a reliable build was possible here in Delhi / Gurgaon. Maybe it is

Think it is about time my Lancer goes the MIVEC way or sell the Lancer & get a Swift TC'd


All the best & have fun & yes keep this thread updated.


Cheers

Whichever way you go, I'm sure both will be a blast to drive.

I am sure it is not as wonderful as your ride, but the pics will take time to come as I will be changing all the piping to aluminium.

I am sure wikipedia explained it in a lot more detail than I ever could.

Yes it was the main road just outside Jaymahal Palace.

No that work is not going to happen this weekend as aluminium piping takes a lot more work.

@jesal - the sunroof was fitted by dealer at time of delivery. It was 26000 MRP then but I got an exchange bonus of Rs.10000:00 for my old esteem and another offer for free accesories worth Rs.10000:00. So in effect i paid only Rs.6000:00 cash for it.

Ah, so the review is finally up! You were sounding quite happy that night at the Palace, and no wonder why!

Those are impressive figures. Very impressive. As for the last part, coming soon!

Congrats, great going. Enjoyed reading your review. I am sure once the minor niggles are sorted you will enjoy the rush even more.

Drive Safe.
