Congrats on the new car but it sure was a shocker It's good that you kept mum about the plans to buy the Hatch back, going by the response of the forum... I'm sure you would have ended with a front Patch for 'upgrading' from the OHC. I was in splits reading this thread...
All the best!

Hey, Congrats Ishan for the fantastic decision. You will not be dissapointed

I got the verna running on stock tyres without alloys and no ICE for the last 7 months / 11000 kms. Never felt the need for ICE or fatter rubber.

The car is THAT good.

Looking forward to more updates. Cheers !!

Is it time we can officially shout: Kitne aadmi thhe?
This should be a car which has taken so much anticipation in it's naming ceremony after JBL Firestarter. Ain't it?

Now, after a few twists and turns worthy of a Himalayan Rally, the 1.1 petro duckling turns into a 1.5 torquey beast!

Time to pop that corkscrew Bhaiyyaji Munshi !! Congrats!
