That's a temporary number. In Delhi, the DL-xx-TC-xxxx is a temporary number allotted by the RTO. Atleast that was the case in 2002 and I am not aware of any changes in the policy.

Nice pictures. Btw, do you need the 0 in front of 439? I think it's ok to write your number as 439.
I too love yellow but had no option. But now, Red Looks Fabulous and I love it. ( vRs Rox)

Its a temporary no, will get a no. by the next week i suppose ( usually 7 days )

0-100 in 8.4 secs! for a 150bhp turbo charged petrol car!, it is quick but not very impressive. I am sure the european spec will be slightly quicker.

But whatever said and done, the car is awesome. Congrats!

The Euro Spec version is 180 bhp stock.
8.4 is quite impressive considering a 1.8 Engine, a hard skoda body and then it beats the Accord v6 hands down.
