Welcome to Cedizens Club Deepan... Enjoy...
In Chennai, the most irritating intrusions are the two wheelers. I got scratch on my car the second day of my driving. Those freeks try to squeeze through even below your undercarriage...
I don't understand why two wheelers have NO RULES nor ROAD MANNERS nor DRIVING ETHICS in this City.
Is every City in India the same...???

Is the ALPG option available on sports? How much performance degradation happens?

I heard even the regular sports model itself is not available now ( may be time being ????); ALPG - sports model is out of question.

After the 10000 km service, FE has incresed. Driven to Trichy and back last weekend. Done about 700km in 3 days. FE has incresed to 12.6km per liter - regular pertrol. Max speed done is 130km per hour.
Overall, I am happy with my car.

Is 12.6 on highway?

I did not see much of FE increase after 10000 km service with mine.

130kmph will be super steady on good roads. I have done 160kmph on the L&T road Coimbatore. Did not want to push further on Indian roads!

Same with me. I use normal petrol often.
Next time on highway I plan to use SHELL premium just for the smoothness and pickup. I haven't seen much variation in FE with premium petrol.

I've always used shell premium other than when it touched 70 bucks. The engine feels a lot smoother and I get 1-1.5km/l higher fuel efficiency than normal/speed/xtrapremium/power from BP/IOC/HP.

One day trip from Chennai - Kumbakonam- Srimushnam - Chennai.

Total km: 647

while going went thru ECR, Chidambaram, Mayavaram, Kumbakonam and coming back from Srimushnam - Virudachalam - Ullundurpet - NH 45 - Chennai.

Overall trip was good. Road between Srimushnam to Ullundurpet not good; took about 1.30 Hrs to cover around 45km. lot of potholes; but Cedia managed well.

given the car for service ; bill amount is 3311/-; Cedia crossed 15000 km now.
