Default 700 KM Report on Esteem VX

Ok Guyz finally i got my new drive,
Its an Esteem Vx 2001 Single owner car it has done 60,000 Km
(no one can say that i bet on it)
i got it on saturday morning after some pooja which mom did i went to siddhivinayak and father agnel church, then it was time to install ICE.
Went to uncles shop i had budget of 7000 without Cd player coz i had one but i started installing system and the bill went to 13,000 but its worth
i bought a woofer sony explod 1000 watt 2 sony amps one is 222 which i had earlier and other one is 300, two rare speakers of oxygen front speakers kenwood then i bought a complete Type R kit for which inculdes Streeing cover,seat belt cover,hand brake cover gear know and cover
(forgive dont know exact terms), spent around 7 Hrs in uncles shop was damn tired went home took bath had dinner and went to my friends place
and we all went for drive to ambyvally, now this was the time for which i was waiting.

I reached express highway , i thought i will revv the engine hard but it was my first day with my new babe so wasnt able to misuse it on first drive so i didnt do that but still without draging the car (you can say effort less) I touched 140 KMPH i was impressed. the car is really silent and no vibration. I am in love with her will try to post some pics soon.

Congrats on your new esteem... it's one of the best driver's car.... very smooth and fun to drive.... nice choice of car there.... have fun and please drive safe.... buckle up....

p.s. brakes on the esteem are a cause for concern so do exercise caution at high speeds.... i've done really good top speeds but lost my guts to push further due to stock tires and brakes.
