@JK.. Where is the pic of the 140+ speeds??
What was really irritating was that everytime i hit 140+ speeds there would be some slow moving truck or van or a Lancer..
But what impressed me the most in the Dicor was its ability to fly over speed breakers without feeling anything where the normal cars will slow down to maybe 10kmph...

I agree. But what amused me even more was that you were hoping i wouldn't slow down at one of these so that you also don't have to!!

That Dicor looks awessssome. Even the interiors and plastics - from whatever little is visible, don't look as bad as people often say they are. Great photography/optical illusion ?

Yep , It was me with the Verna CRDi I was there at the start alright, was one of the first guys to turn up at the HP Petrol pump beyond the Hebbal flyover, but PHYSCO was already there , when i arrived. I had to turn back after the first stop to pick up a very important person from the Airport , and believe me it was a matter of life or death !

I think PHYSCO will concur !

The amazing write upd and the the pictures do make me feel that i missed out on a heavy load of fun ... but there's always next time , and then if its after the month of may I will surely be joining in with my "Petefied Verna "!

Which car's engine is this?? Certainly not Baleno's... I was beginning to think why my Baleno doesnt have such a nice engine compartment !!
