Anand, go slow on your car as its new. Can you post the tacho reads when you achieve these speeds as it would be helpful.

@ kick throttle : i answered jk's question for the max speed of santro. Try to understand what is that before u reply. i didn't mean 165. i have done 155 in my santro. i'll try some other time to reach 165 but i am sure i am going to do that.

@ jk : wil definitely post the pics when i reach max speed.

All speedo readings - so calculate some errors, please.-
I have done max
149 - Wagon R- Express highway( mumbai- Pune).
140and a notch better- indica V2- Express highway
180- checked and rechecked thrice to see if was fluke- then got it clicked and videographed too- Accent Viva Crdi- Ahmedabad Expressway and then soemwhere near Jaipur ( on return trip too) and was absolutely comfortable.( Company manual says max speed-160 kmph)- is this additional 20kmph - speedo error ? I dunno.
Love to own Accord 2008 - V6 - 268 bhp- its reported-somewhere in year 2011- when it will be available in used car market at around 10lakhs-
and then let me see- if I can better it. Till then let me see if I buy Verna and Peterify it and then how much I can better it. Currently in the conceptualisation stage and not implementation- incubation period. looking for help, advises and suggestions, please.
