Went to the showroom today to sell my octavia (sob sob), and asked him if there were any L&k's available and said that he had a few in the shed but all have been booked by customers and he has ordered a few L&k's and would be arriving shortly. He said the reason for the sudden demand was that most people have booked it to avail tax benefits.
Also he said that if there were any cancelations on the booking he would let me know, if not there would be a waiting period of 2 weeks.

So we could beleive on Gurudev Motors.
As they said,they will give VIN of both colors(Black and C.Beige) and asked me to decide which one to go for registration on tuesday.(same drama happened last week too )
Hearing it's good but on that day they'll say some excuses like car haven't come yet,blocked to somebody,blah blah.
That's the very irritating part of car delivery procedures.
any how think positively and if this going smoothly get the car on wednesday - Friday.

Talking Laura Delivered

Got my Laura today, lookin good i must say. Compared to my Octavia it felt like driving a SUV and also the suspension is stiffer, other than that love the load of features.

P.S. i saw another C.Beige Laura waiting to be delivered which was there at the anna salai showroom and was booked for some Mr.Ashok, is it you?

Default My Laura Mileage!

after running 3500kms, I get:
12kpl, in normal trafic (agv speed is ~20kph)
9kpl in reall bad trafic (avg speed is <10kph for sucvh trip)
On highways, I normally get 18-19kpl, but once could manage 20.6kpl for a 120km stretch drive, with extremely light foot and never using harsh breaking
