One time I had to brake fast after doing that so highspeed downshifts + Braking did unsettle her thats why I had decided to change my footwear as soon as possible to S drives and when it comes to braking this car is really something.

I now need to plan a trip to pune express way to try the speeds
Dont try on stock tyres.

Donnow about that but I sure have noticed slight difference in braking .

All-black looks killer. Cannot see the calipers too well, but am sure they are looking nice too.
Do post some good pics!

Default 16000 Km sevice done today.

SERVICE KM :16000

After having used for 5000 Kms personally (bought the car with 11K on odo), I had given the car for service yesterday. The car was having minor problems
  • Squeaky sound while braking the car when going in reverse
  • Low 'thud-thud' sound coming from the front
Today in the morning I recieved a call from the service centre informing me that the car is ready for delivery.

The queaky sound was due to a small coat of paint residue lying on the disc. They rectified the problem.

The other noise has gone down but its still there.

Bill Amount : 2821

Labour : 1500
Industrial Charge : 250 ????

Parts
Engine oil : 672
Oil Filter : 145
Wind Screen Wash Liquid : 20
Bolt with nut : 18
Tax amount 95


Present Mileage : 10.4 Kmpl

Am also posting some snaps taken soon after get it serviced

If you did 210 with those tyres then your true speed should have been more than 210

Awesome car. Looks killer in all black suit. The thud thud sound could be originating from the suspension. Get it checked out.
