Nice pics GTO.. not doubt it is the most underpowered car !!

PS: Look that Lada Riva has the rear fog lamp that only the top end Zen in India has

ya stratos its the lada riva. 118NE is based on it. Except that the lada uses twin round lights on the front. my dad was about to buy one some years back [2nd hand] but decided against, cos the guy was quoting a high price for it.

Well twin headlamped was the old Riva..the new on uses rectangular ones.
Infact a Lada Riva of the same colour and same front stands near Aurora Cinema near Kings Circle!
Here is the pic!

Hey V12,

I think this was one decision that you should be really happy about! If the 118NE was bad, the Lada was just as bad, or worse!
