I mean c'mon, where's 115bhp and where's 150. You might be feeling it since the RS needs to revv up it's TC to be able to benefit from all that power but, once you're there, everything else turns into a spec in the rear view mirror.

Hey GTO, Shantanu, Rudra Sir and Jesal..

I meant to say that the Optras power delivery is better in the sense smoother then the RS.. and you dont feel any noise thanx to TNRS..

Today had a full test drive from New mumbai to Town and from there to GM stockyard for seeing all colors once again and then to Thane to the GM place..

And as far as Octy is concerned the Optra is no match for the RS.. the RS is super fast infact even the corolla is way faster then the Optra but smoothness in drive is only in Optra wheras Corolla makes the most noise and OCty is also a bit noisy..

Anywayz National Garage was giving me a deal 15K cheaper so i told my dealer he said impossible and then they GM guy was called and then it was known that he was changing 14inchers to 15inchers just like that wheras all 15inchers which are on 195/55 tyres come from factory with suspension adjustment to fit the car properly plus the car is altered so that it doesnot cause all effect with everything upgraded by GM for 15inchers..

Wait till you drive the 1.6 then, its smoother and even more refined than the 1.8 Optra.

Montoya dude,

fast decision needed and a fast decidion you made !!

nd to top that a correct one !!

now dont start about power delivery of the optra being better than the RS. The optra is a comfortable car with adequate power and performance - thats what you were looking for and thats what u got ! so chill and enjoy the new car !

cheers

ps- btw which color ?

Well there is no comparision between an RS and a OPtra since the Octy is way faster and i dont wish to start a topic on that.. RS will remain RS anyday and its performance is just mindblowing.. the way she handles and the way she accelerates is mind blowing but then she is an RS after all
