IIRC somebody was mentioning "Diesels having an initial surge which makes them painful to drive in city traffic" or words to that effect on the Petrol vs Diesel FTD thread.

And then he goes and buys the car with the maximum "initial surge". Blame it on the recession!

भैय्याजी, dunno much about small cars and don't generally keep a track of them too. But yes, did like the Dhanno and its rear boom. Sad, you had to let go of her. Must've had compelling reasons.

This Getz CRDi that you tried to masquerade as a petrol has one little brute of a powerplant sitting inside. I know it. Had to draw on all my driving experience and skill to keep this young lad at bay on NH8 while the Bull was screaming at 130+ and smoking from the rear.

KP was heard cruising at 150+ on Rajasthan roads very recently. Gives a decent mileage too. An outside box should boost it to 135BHP. My advice - do it only after 20K kms. The diesel will comfortably settle by then. If possible use Mobil Delvac MX or Delo 400 from day one. You'll be a happy diesel head.

More advice once you take this Brahmin to a watering hole... You better do that fast if you want the "1.1" to be blessed...

Ishaan wake up the dream is over - you are actually driving an insane diesel. "Ab aaya oonth pahaad ke neeche"

May we have you surface with some comments on it's monstrous capabilities !!

He's gone wild somewhere in Wynad. Northern Bhaiyya is getting a good dhulaai there.

Hope his Gabbar is hidden somewhere neat!

I think Gabbar is asking Holi kab hai, kab hai Holi and will only come out then.

Abhik, I think you're at work. Kaam kar le

@GTO trust me we are trying our best as we are all inqusitive about how its doing etc but the absence of the owner and his car is making us lose focus. And its frustrating.
