Doc saab, they were not aware of any such test, anyways my main aim was to get the best out of them.

Now I will get in touch with Manager at apra you told me about, to get the test done.

Anyways I did a long TD at bad roads, Highway till 120, and braking etc. Don't see any problem as of now.

Also they did not gave me any report for chassis alignment, they said there computer is not working

Can I get both of these done at my cost at apra?

The snaps look real good. Looks like a nice job done.
Kindly post some more snaps in proper sunlight when you have the time.

What was the final amount that you had to shell from your pocket?

Hi Rajiv: Car looks fresh out of showroom. Sure, you can go to Apra anytime and ask them to get these tests done. A printout of the readings lets you take expert advice later too.

I went through my checklist religiously. All mechanic were amazed to see this.

Also in India nothing gets complete without problems. As I was about the take the delivery of the car, just for the sake of feeling I passed my palm on the surface of the bonnet and I said "what the hell" it was rough. and came my one of the nightmare in service center. It was paint in the air. Immediately I check the windsheild and minute paint drops there as well.

Now the whole workshop people was on there toes. They did the the rubbing of whole car and cleaned glasses to remove it.

It took full 2 hours to rub whole car with rubbing gel

also I hear little humming sound after 120, I am not sure if its in mind or its a problem. will have to drive it in odd hours to make sure no car/truck is around

Braking is perfect, car goes straight on braking, though I have not tried hard braking
