I am an enthusisat in admiring cars/bikes, the way they are maintained and the kind of gizmo stuff on them. the mods people do to their machines ...

but when it comes to driving, nah, can drive fast on open roads but not on city traffic...

2. does your car have a constant mesh gear box? you do not have to double clutch in modern cars with synchromesh gear boxes.
3. Does the OE Cat Con remain with the FFE ?
1. I don't even go into the city! And its only in the wee hours. I do make sure that I ride carefully.
2. But its good practice when shifting at high revs.
3. Well, think i ll leave the OE cat con in the car. I do not want to pollute the environment.

@bottle, I don't believe this. You were snapping at my heels, when we did the Yelagiri tbhp-meet (Chennai+Blore) and I was by no means driving slow.

If you REALLY mean that even for city traffic as it has become now-a-days, you are not an enthusiastic driver but one that is beyond belief!!

I am like guyonblackbx, when my office shifted to another 15kms more, i was elated while others would have hit their head on the wall. I love to drive more and more, of course if traffic is lesser then its bliss if more than it is just about an ok feeling but never crib

Default I am crazy !

I am relatively new to cars and car driving. Whatever little gyan I have, I got from Team-BHP. T-bhp'ans ! you guys are my guide - right from buying, owning and maintaining my first car - cute little Sparky.

I only take out my car for long drive on weekends. So far, I have done about 900 kms. I love driving peacefully between 60-80 kmph. Bad roads hurt me as much as they hurt my Sparky !

I just love keeping my Sparky sparkling clean. In fact, today I was washing her from 10 to 4 and had my lunch only at 4:30. I thoroughly wash the car cover also every time I wash my car. My Sparky is my cute little baby.

I have not spent much on accessories due to financial constraints. Basic ICE and a good quality floor mats, thats all. But I have recently spent 2.2k on 3M underbody Anti-Corrosion treatment.

I dream to be an expert about cars and car driving.
