Sorry! It is so clear! Darn! What the hell was I looking at!

Guess 5 days of waking up at 2am is taking its toll! Getting squeaky eyed!

What really matters is the comfort and space it offers and innova offers that a lot.
Yup they have stopped, Black, earlier silver, Red and pista green. And introduced, 4 new colors, Grey, Bright Silver, Sky blue, Dark Red.

Anyway I did not take mine above 2k rpm in the initial 1000, slowly raised it to 2.5k by 2000 km mark.
Didn't find anything specific though in manuals, but trying my best to keep it under 2k rpm. Next week planning to go to jaipur, will see the performance there on NH8.

Yup Dash is more attractive with steering mounted controls MID etc. Just got Seat cover done had some Leather touch on it. will post pics tomorrow. Great Help from nitin Elec who are the distributor of Dolphin Seat Covers. This is 4th car with Dolphin, but this one is kind of fix one, it doesn't looks like I got seat covers.

under 2k? man thats like just about the time the turbo starts spooling. i suggest you stick to a max of 2750-3000rpm for the first 2k kms.

Sure, will try, as didn't drove much, as tyre change was in mind. But unable to take a call whether stick to stock one and wait till it ask herself to change her shoes. Or just go for it after reading your comments. So just gave a call to one dealer and he ask me to come tomorrow for C drive 225*60*15. Was worried about a bit heavy steering after I go for this size.

Thank you

i cant make out any difference in the steering after the upgrade. it is as light/heavy as earlier. id highly recommend you change from the stock to c-drives. at least now you will be able to make out the improvement since you have used the stock tyres for a few days.
