Somehow, it doesn't exactly look like a compliment to me. You should be more careful with all that power under the hood.

RX 135 the compliment here is actually in a sarcastic way. If you see what I mean. He was scared to sit beside me. So now he sits at the rear behind the driver seat.

Meremortal. Nice and crisp review. However, you didn't lay any emphasize on its performance ( which it is popularly known for)

Good to see that you are enjoying your car (1.6) I am too having fun with The Black Beast (Palio1.3 MJD).
I have completed 766 kms till now & I am getting above 18.5 kmpl here in Bangalore with 50 % of A.c On in the day
Is there a Problem in all "combination switch" ???That Palios left indictaor does not self-cancel unless one turns a tight turn.Help Needed??

you are absolutely right. the left indicator does not self cancel unless you turn the wheel at least 3/4 screw. you know I feel this is not a bug but a handy feature. India has more left turns than right. Simple because we are RHD.
so in an event where you have to maneuver to the right before taking the left turn, happens in our cities!, the indicator is still on. Other cars would have auto canceled the indication requiring you to engage it again. This is my understanding based on experience. However it might actually turn out to be a bug! Likewise try switching of your headlights while on high beam, you can't.

Let me share my way of playing tricks on Bangy cabbies. If you live and motor in blore you know what kinda of a breed these blokes are. Pure desi touring car races on city streets! (minus safety)

As usual I drive at about 45-50 Kmph listening to Floyd numbers, then all that peace is gone with constant honking. So what to do, leave way. The cabbie gives a look as you as though you are some 'L' board in a new car. Live with it. Signal is Red.I park right behind the cabbie. Green GO! He does notice me and revs the Indica and guns it. Well, the 1.6 is by his flank in no time and past him in a flash and he gets to see it only at the next signal 2 kms away. This time the look is of sheer envy.

Similar situation a qualis honking away at my back side drives me crazy and I gun the 1.6 after which he sees me at a signal 3 minutes late.

Well I suppose I have written enough about the power you asked for

Cheers !
