Congrats dude! Gabbar the mini beast Nice choice. Probably the best combination of mile muncher and road burner we have.
I somehow stumbled onto this thread while searching for something else. Didn't know you had changed your ride. Sad to see Dhanno go.... but, head over heart I guess, and yes, I do know all about those niggling issues in an old car!
Haven't spoken to you in a while. Let's catch up sometime soon.

P.S. I have to admit that the early morning clatter & the diesel stink are still a problem for me to accept! And cooling the turbo down after a hard run is another pain in the rear end! I think a Turbo Timer would be a good addition!
Those who complain about high speed stability need to do check the speed now and then as pointed out by you.

Waiting for 120 sec after each drive us a pain. Once loses precious time.

Do post regarding the Turbo Timer if you come across one.

So are the rims and rubber here?

No, the rims are not here yet though the tyres have been spoken for. Will write a detailed update later tonight or tomorrow, as of today in her first month, she's done approximately 3k kms.

Yup, took her to Manali after the first service, was fun! She returned about 15.9 kmpl on the plains (Delhi - Chandigarh) with 3 people + luggage & about 13 kmpl on the hills with 4 people + luggage.

Getz has got one of the most comfortable seats among all the hatchbacks available in its segment.
