From authorized pioneer shops, you get 2 yr warranty and one yr theft insurance. Did you get the same deal?

never felt any problem with tyres except when they once got overheated on a slope down from ooty(those haairpin bends.. and i thought my braking is making the tyres heated up

I drove my 1.3 (5 months old then) from bangalore to himachal, and on many part's did around 140kmph with the tyres that the car came with. but never felt any lack of confidence or any vibrations (actually one person slept on backseat while on 130-140 on baroda ahemdabad stretch).

Well I have got the 2 yr warranty (correction for my previous message where I had mentioned 1 yr warranty), not sure about the theft insurance though. Anyways, as I had ensured that the music system was included in my Car Insurance cover, so maybe I didn't care to ask either.
