Am sure on the right stretch (there is one on the expressway which is kind a a slope) the swift can touch 180 kmph if someone has the *****. Hey isnt it about time someone starts a thread about 0 -100 for all stock indian cars ? I really need to see this.
Veyron1 has hit 180kmph in his stock Swift. Search for the pic and you will know.

1298cc, 0 to 100 in 11.4 secs, Top speed 175 k
which car under 1300 cc can do that ?
Esteem does that but a Swift doesnot go in 11.4secs please it goes in 12.5secs.

I dont know either.... many be there is some problem with the car system they lit when i cross 150-160 mark ..... and it has not happen once every time i cross the 150 mark the lights come....also when I bring back the car to stand still they dont go till i switch off the car and start it again...both the corner lights are of brake , the left one is for the brake oil and the right side was of the abs.... the fuel one lits because i was low on fuel... see the fuel gauge.....

Never gone beyond that range in my lancer or XETA..! Although One thing is that if someone had to fake the speedo, He can disconnect and the battery terminals and have someone click the photo while he re-sets and connects them back again, The speedo and the Tacho , both go for a complete Spin...and come back again...!

Is it true, When i resetted the ECU in the Optra nothing like that happened. Does that mean the ECU did not reset??

I am wondering how much your K&N filter had to do with your observed increase in speed. Top speed depends on a number of factors -- some of these might be:

(1) Downward slope/tail wind (upto 20 kmph increase is possible).
(2) Load in your car (including fuel tank -- full vs less than 1/2?-- not too sure about how much difference this makes).
(3) Tyre pressures -- helps if tyres are over-inflated by 2-3 psi.
(4) State of the tyres - upgraded vs stock, bald vs lots of tread -- I think less tread may help to a certain extent -- not too sure of this -- check with race drivers.
(4) Road conditions -- smooth roads help -- less friction.
(5) Engine tuning, wheel alignment/balancing -- all these would matter.

Probably you can add to the list too. So the quesiton is whether you found the increase in speed under almost the same conditions as you did 155 kmph? Was it at least the same stretch of road?

I did my 160 kmph (see my avatar) in my unmodified 1-lit Santro with stock tyres on the long, mildly sloping downward stretch just after the Kamshet tunnels on Mumbai-Pune Expressway (towards Pune). I was not always able to hit 160 kmph in this stretch -- sometimes only 155. In fact from the Kamshet tunnels all the way to the end of the Expressway near Dehu Road, the concrete road is very smooth and my Santro hits 150 kmph even on level road in this stretch, with fuel tank near 1/2, no load and tyres over-inflated to 33 psi (alignment and balancing are very good in my car, and my stock tyres have done 33000 kms - still reasonable amt. of tread left). My mileage is about 11-12 kmpl in city conditions and 13-15 kmpl on highway depending on driving style -- flooring the pedal gives abt. 13, 90-100 kmph top speed gives 15. So probably my engine is tuned more for pick-up than for mileage.
