I have not faced any issues with files not geting recongnised. But I have noticed that it is not taking the directory structure I have created and taking them all in a sequence with just one level up.

I drove mainly in D mode but using the paddles to shift early with the first tankful. Now I am driving in S mode using the paddles. This should give a FE identical to a manual version.

Hey Guna - congratulations and brochure-quality pics you have there! What camera you using? Just one thing - too much contrast!

I agree with your assessment on the handling, steering and interiors and on the interiors somewhat. Hope you get a chance for trying out the car on a highway soon (suggest a trip to Nagarhole!). The road/tire noise is quite significant though - I can't feel the bumps too much but I can definitely hear them.

So Fusion would have a firmer low speed ride compared to the City. I find the City low speed ride very firm.

I love a pliant ride, but most cars these days give a firm ride.

I checked and the protection is there. But it is not a complete protection as there is a big opening in the middle.

thanks folks.
@Vikster, yes the contrast is too much as it was shot in the daylight (not a diffused light). I have a Canon 5D

Thanks Glifford. I am enjoying it and always find an excuse to drive it to office instead of taking the company bus . But still it is not as much fun to drive as Fusion!

You can't open the boot lid with the remote which is another feature I was used to in my previous car (Fusion)
Hi Guna,

Congrats on the new city.
Car and color looks Sweet!

Regarding the top two points you mentioned. Are they particular to this model, or is it just absent on the New Honda City? Noticed in the photographs that the front bumper does not have provisions for Fogs either, again, is that available in other models?

Planning on a new car after the FF and choices are very limited in the range I must say.

Even I was thinking exactly the same when I first saw the pics!

Doubt that they would be different bumpers for different variants. It would defeat the economy in numbers production advantage!

Just checked the website: :: Honda City ::

Seems like fog lamps are "cut into" the standard bumper. Or you have an option of fitting an "under spoiler" with fog lamps.
