Wow. You surely haven't gone through a few threads on TBHP.

Here are two of such articles...

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/owning...nt-killer.html (ARTICLE: Resale Value - The Silent Killer)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/owning...rade-swap.html (ARTICLE: YOUR 5 year old car : Keep, Upgrade or Swap?)

Will help you make your mind whether to sell the car or not!

I am sure after going through the thread, you will keep this black beauty.

And here another one for suggestions on Long Term Parking issues.

Woahhhohooooo!

Black at its best. Dude, your car is sick (well for me, every black car is sick; be it a humble Alto or a Maserati Quattroporte!). Good decision, keeping her!

Thanks for sharing the pics. You just made my day.

Exactly the same reason I chose the Civic over Altis.Cruze was out because of shoddy and super cramped interiors.


Second that....Same reason I went for the Civic (v A/T) as well.11 months,32000 Kms later I am so happy for having made the right decision.

Shuv, I saw in one of the posts that you crackedd 22.4 Kmpl.Great effort that. The maximum I touched was 19 kmpl. Any tips on how you cracked the 20 mark? Is your civic MT/ AT?

Cheers.

Did I read it right or was it a typo? 32,000 kms in 11 months! And I thought I was going guns with 16,000+ in 7 months...

Do you eat, sleep, drink et al inside your car by any chance!

Great decision hajaar. Its good that you are not selling off this shining beauty. Look at the 'Black Fury' yaar, it looks like a mirror. Hats off to you for maintaining it in such a way.

No typo guys.32K figure is correct.I do a lot of highway trips.That explains the figure.

Hi

I noticed yesterday that when in S mode without the paddle shift, the A/T shifts up only till 4th Gear.The way I checked it was: Switch to S Mode (Dont use the paddle shift just yet).Let the speed go upto 80-85 KMPH mark.Then engage the paddle shift.It always seems to show M4 (on the tiny display screen).At this speed it should have engaged 5th Gear. Revs move up higher but 5th never gets engaged.

Tried the same at slightly higher speeds too. But still M4 shows up.

Has anyone noticed this or Is there an issue with my vehicle?

Thanks
RamanAK.
