Is it possible to fill ordinary air in a nitrogen-filled tyre?
Yes why not. it is the same tyre with same pin for air intake. Even ordinary air has 79% nitrogen. so no problem at all in emergency.

Mine is the same as well. Actually i found that ouit accidentally while cleaning the car. Gosh we have to include that under PDiI checklist as well now

Man, i really love this quality of yours, clicking pics and making videos wherever possible. Thats quite unique car wash system, have never seen it before. Used to give my car for pressure washes at petrol pumps but thats quite normal.
Anything like this in Delhi, wanna try badly.
I have a N82 which has a 8Mp camera. so it has indeed become very useful to me.

As for the automated car wash in delhi

if yes, then great.
Yes, one can top up with normal air and then whenever gets the chance to visit the N2 Tyre Inflation System Center, replace with N2.

The alloys have come atlast. Got a call from the dealer yesterday.

Only that a single alloy oem cost rs.10.500. The dealer had told me that it would cost only 6000 by now

so i am in 2 minds now. shall i go for it or just live with the old slightly bent alloy?

Seems 10.5k is the price to go with. I have no other choice. i have told them that i will come on monday to make the change .

I have not informed them of the seatbelt issue which also will be taken up.

Post nitrogen fill, the handling has increased leaps and bounds. and it is like as if the car is floating on the road. the tyre noise have definitely decreased ( i have asessed it in smooth and rough roads).

The seat coming down issue is still there. I have to pressurise them this time for it.

Yesterday i deleted my user data from Blue and Me and connected my Sony erricsson W800i. It works like charm. Lucky that it reads message, Though it was super fast and funny in accent.

If not for the alloy expenditure i would have bought a SE phone. Now that have to wait as i have to make up money for the alloys

@ geessh,

You mentioned that you have N82. Were you able to download the phonebook into blue & me. I have N95 and i am having problems with downloading the phonebook. It pairs with blue & me but when i choose to download the phonebook it says i have to choose the options from the phone to copy the phonebook. Then i tried to synchronize the phonebook from the phone with blue & me , as soon as i do that the connections gets disconnected.

Yes no problems at all. The problem occur as nokia n series is a push type of bluetooth phone so you need to push your phonebook into the car and not like SE phones where the car itself pulls the phone book

Do as i say.

1.first go to Settings-> userdata-> delete all and delete everything there
2. now go to settings-> pairing and wait for it to give a number
3. In phone search for blue and me and pair it with phone and authorise it to connect automatically.
4. the car will say welcome and display the name of the phone bluetooth in MID
5. now it will ask whether it wants to copy the phone book yes/no. press ok button now. the blue tooth will get disconnected in phone now.
6. Go to phone contacts -> mark all-> send business card-> via bluetooth.
7. wait for it to convert it into business card and then ask for bluetoth name in which you select blue and me .
8. You will see the contacts getting copied in car MID with tick sound.
9. on finishing press the Phone button on the car to connect the phone with the car.

Just do this and it will work like charm

@geeash,

Thanks a lot. I am able to make calls using blue & me now. Another question. How do i end the call that i made through blue & me. Do i need to use the phone for ending the call. Is there any other mechanism or button. Sorry for lot of questions. My dealer told me that it is not possible to use N95 with blue & me. Is there any additional software required for message reader. Or once the pairing has been done will i be able to read the sms as well through blue & me.

- To end the call, press the phone button on steering & hold it for more than 2 seconds.

- Message reader works only in Pull type phones. Most of Nokia phones are not pull type & hence msg reader won;t work. Sony Errickson phones are most compatible with B&M & msg reader would work with most of sony errickson phones

Aswin,
Have you changed your Alloys.
yesterday in DLF premises,Punto was displayed by Concorde Motors.
I just had a chat with the sales guy.while speaking about alloy wheels.
He told me one customer is ready to exchange his punto Alloys with Linea ones.
He is searching for Linea Alloys to be added in his punto.
If you are interested,i'll PM his number.
