Thanks Bro. The interiors are squeaky clean. The white carpet is very very scary though. I only allow people with clean footwear in my car.

The diesel octy's readings are not very accurate ( should be the same here too) . Why dont you check the FE with the tank to tank method ?
Waiting eagerly for better pictures.

Lol
I thought you'd never drive another car when this is with you.
Getting good efficiency is not that tough. Give it a cruise control shot at 120kmph also for some time and you'll easily get around 13kmpl

+1. I dont drive my vTec these days. Mostly Driver does that.
Its difficult as you dont feel the adrenaline rush in the other cars once you drive this

God even after driving a c230 avantegarde, i so felt like going back to my vRs as soon as possible.

Congrats Red for your Yellow

You just bought yourself my dream car and that too in my dream color. If in a year or two if i still feel like a teenager, i may too go for the same car

Congrats and drive safe!
