Ofcourse, that would be a very apt name for you knowing your passionate..errr adventoures escapades ( dont let your better half read this).

Congratulations!
Recently one of our family friends bought SX4 ZXi for around 7.15 Lakhs. I think that the difference is because of Octroi not being present in our state.
The positives of this car outweigh the negatives. Specially GC. We have Baleno that has sagged down after around 30K kms. may be due to strut suspension all round. But SX4 is not known to give such problems and once monsoon arrives ( it is yet to arrive in Gujarat ) this one single feature will prove very useful.
Moreover the seating position is also very good. Headlights from two wheelers or other cars will not hit you straight in the eye, another factor that affects safety. High speed stability is good too.

About the rims, think more before going in for 17 inch IMHO. As you will have to maintain OD, definitely the aspect ratio of tyre will go down. This, coupled with stiff suspension of the car, will give you a not so good ride quality atleast at slow speeds ( read city driving ).

Boss, Congrats once again on your new acquisition. Now, when are you gonna get those trigger happy Nikon folks, mobile, absynth and pulsar to do some wonders?

I would like to keep you posted that your baby is doing great! The last time I took the car for a long drive, I was amazed at how it became smoother and more powerful after 120kph..and stays planted too with not much body roll in very fast turns.

cheers

Thanks Badri....It is always nice to hear that your loved (ex) car is in good hands. That baby is amazing at high speeds which i experienced when I drove it from Blr to Hyd. In hindsight, it was a good decision of mine to upgrade the tyres at the beginning itself and they dramatically altered the behaviour of the car.

Cheers!

Congrats Himanshu on the great buy! Definitely a great buy . Changes in the new model are sweets.. think they are listening to complains from owners.. I like the new single key combination.. wish you a good ownership!

btw, what mods have you done so far? I too have a white SX4 for more than 2 years and it still looks and behaves as a new car, out of the showroom.. cheers

You bet...thank you for doing this wise upgrade..I just wonder how a light bodied car like Baleno stays so planted at high cruising speeds. Any way, welcome back to Suzuki family and with it, to peace of mind. Enjoy your new ride.

Wonder why Tata's do not take heed of the customer problems and work on reliability.

@mobike008

Sure, will post both the pics shortly. 'am also due for a the long term ownership report for Baleno..
