Thats surprising. As far as i know, all wagonRs have rear windows that down go down fully.

Yes, thats the case with my car too, before and after window film installation.

I dont think the rear window goes down completely in the Wagon R. In quite a few cars it doesnot.

AFAIK, for the new Palio - Stile - the OEM alloys are AURA.

Well, the odo stands at 1290 kms as of this morning.

With the first full tank, I got 8.44 kmpl. Thought "well, I guess I'll have to start looking for an Sheik's daughter to marry!" .

And I got totally impatient with the slow odo movement, and took it to Chennai this weekend. I ensured that the car didn't rev past 3k rpm. It hits a steady 100 kmph at about 1 point less than that mark. Lots of fun driving it. Could feel a lil "newness" of the car till about half point. But with 32 litres of fuel, I got 390kms on the onward journey, so a F.E of ~12kmpl. The engine has become noticeably smoother, but I am worried that I need to get a service done asap now. I am scheduling one today.

Anything else I need to get done when I am in for my first service? I'll have to take pics this week sometime and post it.

Thanks guys for all the good wishes.
