Default Cheap Thrills Money Can Buy!!

yup thats what this post is all about.
gifted mysef a Nokia 9500 for feb 14th, and man this is it, am a happy man.. ol 7710 missed the wifi age, and now am blessed with all the sweet pain of email, web and chat in my favorite wifi hot spot of watering hole.. if you are one of those with insane addiction with being connected.. GO*4 IT!!

Next was an interesting twist, remember ol man shifting to Mobil 1 on his Optra, well for a change ill listen to ol man!!

Weekend got out and put some M1 in my iKON after a generous doze of flushing oil.. M1 cost 2600 INR and all the moolah spend is worth it!! The car had done 33k kms 5 n half year old and trust me the difference is not psychological, the motor has becoe criso like a fav rice crispy iam treated to once in a while.. have driven around some 50 mts from the garage and woah i ws grinning ear to ear...

bloody change is so very evident, always assumed that hitting rev limiter on Optra was psycholog
ical assumption from my side, and then the gas milage from chennai was another revelation, anyways wth thought my gal needed some pampering so went with it.. trust me no regrets, am sure mileage will be pathetic coz ive been virtually rap**g the motor since then..

sure my driver can give some inputs by mid week when he takes my car for babysitting duties..

till then.. thank u ol man works better atleast hits u in the older mill :P

Your assumption = perception = reality. May sound little arrogant but front wheels made a screeching sound while shifting from second to third gear…not to mention, I was little agitated after my client meeting.

Jaggu, send a PM to our admin. I owe him big time for this. I made more than six calls to GTO to check if 5W/50 the right grade. "Trust me. Go for it" was the answer all the time.
