Dear Sir,

Thank you for your post, expressing interest in our scantily clad women. Please note that we have never used the word polish in our communication.

Please note that our women only remove unwanted underarm hair from your beloved car.

Best Regards,

Sam

What kinduva thread is this? Somebody talks about Sam showing us his nuts (wants pictures even, bloody pervert!), then using aloe vera, lanolin, lemon scented wipes to clean up & rejuvenate, some yakk about strips of leather being stictched together, a scantily clad woman to remove unwanted hair, somebody else wants to put nail polish on his freakin' door handles & mirrors, then there's talk about being dipped in a bath...

Are there any men left on this forum, or am I posting to a bunch of trannies?

And I am not a lubricant, you lady curs. Engine or otherwise.

Well, yesterday evening I drove the lancer home.

It was absolutely a different car.

The Engine - It had a totally different sound. Honestly it felt, umm, like I was driving a different car. The engine sounded different. I had imagined it would be more silent, with the new oil. No, I think the decibel level was the same, but it revved like a different engine.

She climbs up revvs faster, much faster, and when I leave the accelerator, the RPM needle DEFINITELY drops a whole lot faster too. The car was responsive, the engine felt super-duper smooth. I would attribute this to the oil, but I am sure new plugs and filters have helped. I have seen oil changes before, this is a drastic change.

Another very strange thing - Since the day I have got the car, the temperature gauge climbs up to a little under the half mark and stays there constantly with little or no variation. However, post the radiator flush and the engine spa, the needle refused to go over a quarter mark. The engine is definitely running a lot cooler than it was earlier.

I pepped down the new reclamation stretch at bandra. The car lunged towards the 100mark much faster than before and at 140 km/h there was little or no engine vibration. I could not go faster as there is a barricade up ahead. Fantastic.

The engine is clean, wheels look great and I am very very happy with the job overall.

For those that have asked me, I will answer again. My girlfriends elder brother runs a garage at Ballard Pier, Mumbai. He personally took care of everything as per my requirements.

The great thing is, that the FEEL-GOOD factor about the lancer has tripled after this treatment.

I recommend what I have done for any person who loves his car and has had it for many years. I am not even a car person, by nature. However my love for this one car has led me to do a lot of research. I promise you, the car feels like the day it was brand new.

To quote Rudra Sen : Treat your machine right and the machine will treat you right.
