Thanks Mark. I was looking for White/Blue or Black. Red was not to my taste.
White: I don't like to sound like a Builder or Politician.
Blue: Was not to my liking when saw in flesh. It is also Love/Hate kinda color.
BLACK: This was stunning. It was looker on road. I couldn't resist others to peep-into my car and see. And I love that feeling.

No hard feelings. This is just my personal opinion on color.

I've clocked 2K Kms in my Vento. I could notice that the mileage had improved a lot in city driving when we upshift to 4th quickly and not following the G.Indicator. I don't understand the mystery behind this.
Both of my Rear power windows doesn't work properly. But works fine when operated from driver controls. Have anyone of you observed the same problem?

Marker job looks very good. I need not worry about small scratches in future.

BTW, Do you use normal diesel or premium? I have been using normal but wanted to try the premium one.

I use normal diesel and fill-in only from IO/HP and my tire pressure is 35 all around, irrespective of occupants. Pls. stay away from premimum. doesn't server the purpose.
Here tire pressure also plays an important role.

FYI: I've also purchased BLACK Nail polish and store both the Marker & NP in boot.

I've got my interiors done by OVION. Difference in shade is due to sunlight. Rear seats are the correct shade of seat covers
