I didn't pay much attention to the speedo during that drive, but I saw a some figure just above 100. May be it was near 110.

Update,

My tyres are on their last leg, so finally decided to upgrade from 13" to 15", being a regular salaried guy and that too in the month of march, such upgrade decissions can mean a lot of damage. Finally got a set of used alloys, they are not used much say 2k, were lying at a friends place for some time so age and frequent shifting had taken its toll on the alloys. Now i need a fresh coat of paint on the alloys, my question is what color.

My choices in the following order:
Silver
Gunmetal
Black
White

Kindly suggest. I will post some pics in the night my office internet is acting up.

Gunmetal will be good. Silver, chrome, white alloys are found on every second car. Gun metal is something which is not found that often .

Good going Pramod. I hope we can expect a step by step photo shoot of the DOHC and Turbo updgrades that you have planned for. Lancer is still a star in my list !

Also I feel black paint with red lip for the alloys should look stunning !

Definitly, i will post the pics. The alloy doesent have a lip that i can paint. I too like that combo but i want this car to look as sleeper as possible.
