Thanks Naveen for your compliment. As regards to me being called Guruji, I must say that my knowledge about cars is no where even close to what the others on the forum possess. I am continuously learning on Team BHP and rightfully am still a Newbie even though I have been online for over 7 months.

As regards to the Excel sheet, I just updated it today completely and I got a few statistics that are very revealing. My car is 527 days old and based on each and every paise that have been spent on the car, it has cost me Rs. 780 per day to own, mantain, park and run it. What do you think, is it worth it?

(Sorry, I think this is going off topic)

what i feel is the clutch release and the throttle pedal i.e. acceleration should be done ""so close" to being "near to" simultaneously to have the car moving from each change in gear without u nor any passengers feeling any gears being changed. it has to be that smooth. now dont get me wrong and do clutch slippage.
same goes when u r downshifting at high speed about to negotiate a turn (bend) say 140kmph and u need to shift to 4th gear to be in control for a secure turn and a power out of the turn. what i do is blip the throttle pedal a bit to be in the rev band close about to take the bend and here the shift has to be quick and leg of the clutch pedal. blip throttle - downshift - leg of pedal. it has to be qick or ull loose the revband and get the engine groaning loudly. this tech helps in no ugly engine noise and no nose dive.
btw the driving tech overseas is a real test to make most of us close to perfect drivers.
if u need more info let me know.
