NC somehow convinced him to buy 1.1 for FE purpose but Ishan has indeed something up his sleeve. He says this is just a city car and thats why 1.1 is more than enough but actually something else, something big and more powerful is replacing Dhanno.

So just keep your congrats limited to 1.1 instead start bugging him for whats this next big thing!

Guys, I'm sure Ishan had a tough decision to make. Sometimes one has to let the head rule over the heart. Let's try not to rub it in now...

Daal mein kucch to kala hai!

Congratulations, anyhow! And the Prime 1.1 is the best of "Tax benefit" big hatches. Better tyres required, if course, but then that's not a problem with you.

Now, we are expecting something more interesting soon!

Unbelievable.

Like everyone else - why?

Now if the next meat, you turn up - heck we wouldn't know you are there till you walk over - that's not the tyrewala everyone knows

jokes apart, Congrats. A "sensible" buy, I must say. The Getz is a sheer joy of a car, though I honestly won't say that for the 1.1 engine!

Kudos for taking another wise decision. My belief in you as a sensible chap is proved again. Congrats !!

She looks beauty in the color, would love to see this space filled up by a same color "Honda Civic" in near future. Best of Luck !!

Congrats Ishan!! A real nice looking 1.1. So, what upgrades have you planned? Since its the 1.1, I guess you'll get A. Drives or XM1s....

Congrats Ishan. This still is a downgrade from your upper C segment OHC. But makes a lot of sense with a crdi for your kind of running. And a beautiful colour too. Looks like everyone is buying a new car these days.
