Ok so here are a few pics from the beach.


@mrbean - there were only the 2 cars on the trip. So nothing special to put up about rides.

Petrol thallai, where are the snaps we took on the way to pondi? That has the 4 of us and jessica.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the report Prasanna. Very well written. I was reminiscing all the events that transpired on that night while reading your report and was laughing all over again.

Side Note: What the hell are you talking about when you say you found me and Sutta Kambi in uncomprising positions. I wasn't THAT drunk.


Your interiors is way better than my Baleno. There happy now ? Again.

No reason why we shouldn't do this more often. The trip was economical too.

Next time though it is your CRDI against my 16V.

It was probably cause of all the mineral water nitrous made us drink. We were trying to wake ranjith and hotrod up at some 5 or 6 in the morning. So I guess it was about that time. I have made it a point to kallaichify everyone, so that our poor sutta kambi doesnt get roasted! Dont take it personally

Yeah once more once more! But maybe a different destination? Nothing beats a night out, but perhaps a day trip is what would attract more guys. Plus that would work out more economical. Actually, what would be an awesome trip would be a drive to bangalore and then to nandi hills. Hugely popular drive the bangalore chaps do every friday. I think even our fellow phoenix was looking forward to joining that gang for a drive given the opportunity.

Oh absolutely. The verna vs baleno fight would legen-dary Though I noticed how much more comfortable you were handling my car. I am used to handling the car on my old 185s and still turn the steering wheel too much. Need to get used to the 195s.

BTW an off topic update bala - there IS a problem with my steering setup as we found that day on the ride back - raghav confirmed it and so did kun hyundai. Damper to be checked, failing which raghav has recommended that I replace the defective steering setup under warranty.

We shall have a nice drive once I get all this fixed at service over the next couple of weeks.

Back to work tomorrow :(

Please do get it replaced as you are still in warranty. I wonder how it suddenly cropped up on our drive back. Maybe the mineral water made us more perceptive.

I think a pair of strut braces later your car would be just about perfect.

Also I was joking about the position. I kow how you meant it. I'm surprised Jackdonkey is silent.

Not a sudden thing actually. I have been having problems in the city with steering vibration for months now. HMP kept saying nothing wrong. Now its become worse.

I know, just that I dont want to scare people away from future meets with funny position stories

Ha ha ha ha - jackdonkey!
Too tough to write in tamil, so in english - when he comes, how he comes no one knows. But when time to come, he comes.

Just imagine that if a stock car could do so much - what would it do if it had half the mods your mistress is going through

Ah I must touch a lot of wood for all this discussion about my car. Even my interiors have not been spared! Headers, the bhp-garage comment was heights! I did not see that coming! ha ha ha ha ha


Yercaud sounds great. And was nt that ""maintaining or touching" quote my thing? You stole?? Though I still stand by it. Maintaining those speeds consistently takes quite a bit out of you, what with all the random things that go on on these highways.

And how dare you use the term mods on nitrous' mistress. That car is as stock as ever!
