Well, my girlfriend called. She just went and picked up my White Verna CRDi. She drove it for about 30 minutes and was hugely surprised by the smoothness and the sheer power.
She usually drives an esteem and occasionally my lancer and is a good driver and a parsi to boot.
The car was clean, unscratched and had 81kms on the thingy. (It is a vashi registration). As expected, it came with 175/70/14 tyres, but the only annoying thing was, well that it wasn't bridgestone as promised.
Turned out to be MRF ZVTS.

I'm gonna find out what it's like, when I return to mumbai.

Can you imagine the frustration guys? Of getting delivery of your brand new car while you're out of town for 5 days?

Sweet! I also see that it has taken the Lancers parking space!!

Don't fret about the tyres, the MRF's are far better then the OE Bridgestones.

I would seriously doubt that. MRF's quality has been going south for quite some time now especially with the new ZVTS's.
