The city is 975-980... there's not such a large difference in the two cars at all... in terms of weight, I mean...

10 kgs to be precise. Both the Vtec and the City 1.5 weigh 985kgs. 10 kgs is negligible.

Aveek,

Wondering who your "friend" was, and how he's feeling now that he missed this?

Handbrake turn? Did you get her reg no? What colour was it?

Seems like you had a sh*tload of fun! Now this is fun, 100 bhp driver's cars, all courtesy of the Japs, with eager and willing drivers driving them the way they should be driven.

I've loved my Honda(s). Now I love my Baleno! I love all my cars!

Iceman, Shan2nu, Aveek, anyone, I'd love to match up or just check out your rides!

Saturday night, anyone?!

Cheers


Viper

Sorry, i don't check out cars after dark. I you're interested, we can meetup around a lonely stretch in the afternoon or early evening and check each other's cars out.

Keep the nights for chat, food and drinks.

What exactly you want to check out? The cars, or the drivers?

Having driven a City only for an hour or so I cant comment that much but in comparison to the Baleno - it does feel faster in the higher revs - but I'd prefer the Baleno anyday in city traffic , 2nd gear, even 3rd are so comfortable.

Rudra Sir, umm...I don't know what that means, but I prefer cars!

Iceman, will try to fix up something for the long weekend up ahead. College plays major spoilsport otherwise.

Shan2nu, how often are you in Bangalore?

Hey, how about a meet this weekend? Been a while since the last TBHP meet. Which i missed!
