Talking My new car.........Finally!! (Whew!!) GETZ Crdi

So as many of you know, I had been looking to replace Dhanno for a while now but for multiple reasons, it could never really work out. But today I finally got a new car as it is the Getz Prime!

I know, I know it's like blasphemy but to be honest in the short distance that I've driven the car, it feels pretty good to drive & the engine is pretty torquey too.

Here are some pics of the car:

The thing I don't like about it is that the non-body colour door handles which I intend to get painted pretty soon:

Now I know a lot of you will go after me for the choice of car but unfortunately due to limited finances this is all I could afford at this point of time. And the Honda was eating up too much money in maintenance etc. so I wanted to change her asap.

More about the sale process, future mods etc. later!

Ishan, congrats on the new car. I see you have picked a similar shade, you should be in love with that colour

Thinking about it, it does make practical sense and looks like you have let your head rule your heart with the buy. It sure is one peppy lil monster with lots of mod potentials for later on.

Sad that the OHC clan is slowly reducing in numbers.
