Default SX4, BOUGHT and RIPPED..!!!!!!!!

Just picked the sx4(zxi )in metallic sunlight copper,from RNS motors Bangalore, firstly i like to thank my friend mclaren1885, the GM(sales nd marketing) Mr Patil,and Mr Naveen also from RNS...for the delivery of the first sx4..
Now coming to the car have brought it without even TD,well shocking but true Maruthi has scored with the sx4, though the car has an suv ground clearence u have a sweet handler, min body roll,and i am in love with the engine though its chain driven it really really smooth and many a times there was a doubt that the engine was running at all, by the way the package on the over all is really value for money, but as of now i can heavily smell the clutch burning as to with that will be back at rns tomorrow,the air con is too good so is the fit and finish in the car the system ain't that great it made by nippon, but it up to standards and it has an aux port too, so as far as i see the sx4 its one nice package and the m16a engine on it can also be taken too some nice performance levels with readily avilable stuff from Europe and Australia..... by the way already clockes close to a 100kms on the car since delivery at 7 in the evening...
thats me with the car
the dash
the engine bay
the ecm
the 16" enkei with 205/60 rubber
the integrated system tith the air con and climate control roto knobs
will continuing writing more as the month goes by on the car and FE and stuff like that..........

Congrats for the wonderful car .. You can thank me by giving the keys to me on friday for the drive I am planning for my anniversary .. Also a special thanks to Mr.Patil Sir and the exemplory service and a rapid quick delivery by RNS .. Appreciate the efforts taken by them ..

Take care of her , very soon we will back to our parallel driving .. Missed it a lot all these days .. And guys no mods until wannabe tuner gets back from the states .. Expect quite a few surprises once he is back .. And more ..

Sumit , chrome wheel @ 3500 (aka noodles) already TD the car yesterday .. Run him over in your truck ..

memo, congrats and i feel bad that i was not able to join you guys at rns inspite of mclarens invite. anyways, i have no doubts this car is good and if well if you drive it sedately and naturally, it can possibly work wonders on the FE too. enjoy

Mohnish - congrats chum! I really enjoyed drivng your SX4 from Tavern to Airport and back. Very tractable engine for a car that pleasingly looks like an SUV! Enjoy !


@Godfather: You left too early yday - a few mins (80 mins to be precise) more and you could have driven it. It is amazing with a capital A. The Honda City's sunset has arrived.


@moralfibre: His is claimed to be the first SX4 delivered anywhere in India.
