congrats karan,

my brother in law also picked up a ANHC about 2 months ago and loves the car. silver looks pretty cool and is a doddle to maintain. he has the dark grey.

enjoy your ride and stay sane. THATS what keeps you safe.

cheers

Thanks Raul.

Well yeah Guna's car & rims look neat. But i dont have the budget right now. Maybe in few months upgrade the tyres and new bling bling rims. Some Lenso alloys look awesome. Have kept them in the mind only as of now.

Did you mean it jerks while you release the clutch or it jerks in reverse all the time?
Well i mainly have problem all the time when i release the clutch and when i shift 1st gear too. Sending the car today to the dealer. Will keep you updated. I dont think it has anything to do with the way i handle the clutch as i drive the Petra and Swift too. Dad too had complained about this.

Well, i am saying in comparison with NHC!!

Many people have an impression, that, ANHC has as magical FE as NHC. but they have to disappoint with actual figures.

Well for the power its got ,Anything in range of 11-12km/l to me is brilliant for city driving 100 % A/c.

Thanks Sathee. Why not?? Because it costs a bomb -Rs57,000!!! for a set of 5. I think Lenso & HR offer better looking alloys at 25-25k range.

57K, I never knew that. It's better to get aftermarket alloys and also a tyre upgrade along with it. ANHC looks real cool with alloys, get them soon.

Cool! Me too getting 11.3 kmpl with 100% Ac, 100% city. Hopefully it will only go up after 1st service. Impressive for a car with 118ps.

Thats quite close. Initial figures of FE shown were quite less for me as my driver kinda revs . Now mostly me , dad drive it . Atleast till 1st service.
