Congrats on your car, Toyota, well name says it all. Altis -- well for the next few years you need not be bothered of even a facelift. Amazing car.

Congrats Harish, As they say, you can never go wrong with a Toyota. And Altis is a wonderful car(we have one in our house) with excelent service support. And then I owe you a big one for saving me from Skoda. We were also planning to go for a Laura and then I read your experience with skoda.

Compress (resample) the pics to a lower size using any free software available (I use Irfanview). If you have already done that and the filesize was below 1 MB in the first place, then I guess some other members will be able to help.

Wonder why Toyota called it 'Sports'?

Congrats on the new buy, Harish and good luck with the Skoda issue. I know it is a pain and I also understand the meaning of a long unending dispute in court (we have one going on for seven years). Keep your faith. You have done nothing wrong and nothing wrong will come to you.

First of all Congratulations from my side.

Is this the " Sports " limited edition that Toyota recently came up with ?

This is the best buy in that segment that is not very costly to maintain, very reliable and does not face issues that others face like low slung nature ( Civic ), A.S & S. availability ( Optra, Cedia ) or skoda ( you know more than me about this ).

Great practical buy.

Harshji, though I am a bit late, please accept my congratulations. Thats a fantastic car you have got and hopefully she'll help you get over the trauma of the past fifteen months.

OT: Respect sir, deep respect, for the way you have gone about the entire saga in an extremely dignified manner.

Congratulations on your new Altis from another very satisfied owner of Altis. Though my Altis is only 3 months and 2300 kms old., but the ownership experience has been very satisfying till now. Hopefully after the nighmarish experience with Skoda, you will now enjoy a long & trouble free drive with Toyota.

And please keep on fighting Skoda till they loose the fight. All of us on this forum are with you.
