Wink Phew !! Finally got a peppy car !

Well,
Its not like I have been roaming around in diesel padminis or anything, which struggle to go past 80 kmph or so but then the hunger for more power never ends

I have been using a Swift VDi for more than a year now as my daily drive and I must say i am quite content with it.
Some time back we thought that another hatch is a must for easy commuting in the city and hence the search for a good hatch began.

My dad started giving me nightmares by pushing for Indica Vista and Alto and such stuff.That freaked me out,i knew if i didnt do anything soon, we would end up buying a Vista which i didn't want. ( No offense meant to Vista and Alto owners, I have used Indica for a long time, didnt want another one)

So i suggested the Getz,initially both mom n dad were not convinced about it but a bit of arguing and convincing got the job done......lol

So it was decided, Getz CRDi it would be.

Accordingly formalities were completed and got the delivery yesterday.
As soon as i got delivery, got some basic things done,
1) Alloys and Tyres - Konig 15" Alloys + Michelin Pilot Preceda 2 195/50/R15 tyres.
2) Filming
3) Seat Covers
4) Horn,perfume,steering grip,headlamp bulbs etc...

Audio will happen a bit later. once i manage to gather finances for it.

Some pics,

Congrats on your new ride mate.

I think peppy is a too soft to describe it. Call it a monster or something
