In diesel engined cars you have to tev the engine a bit to get it going unlike petrol vehicles. Having said that, in case you have a Quadrajet, the car should be accelrating pretty decently as it does not have the turbolag before 2000 rpm like the Tdi.
Keep the AC on recycle mode as far as possible. It will result in better cooling, the interiors will be smoke and pollution free and moreover your blower wouldn't suck up dust and muck as is the case when you are using the fresh air mode.

Thanks for the reply...
I own a CAVERN GRAY QUADRAJET AURA - a diesel!
Yeah - i understand the reference to the car that you are making and in my apartment where I stay - there is only one indica vista owned by me (amongst about 100+ cars). Thats a good feeling!
In terms of the deal I got a 10K discount from Tatas and a 3K discount from dealer making it abt 512K on road (insurance was very expensive and I realized it later)
I got Sunfilm, mat set, mudflaps and a 3M wax finish from dealer
Planning to get the white transparent corrosion paint from the dealer and change in tyres to Michelin XM1+. I might get a tuning box from colleagues who may travel to US
No ice upgrades, the existing music system works for me.
In terms of other requests -
I have driven my Dad's wagon-R for about 5000 Kms and find it extremely good in terms of driveability in city. The turning radius is very short and the visibility from driver's seat is simply awesome. I find Wagon-R much more [FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3]maneuverable in crowded/narrow places. Spark comes a distant second. [/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3]Having said so, vista is not bad. Its good in terms of stability but if an Auto stops right in front of you in a crowded place dont expect the go-carting like feel of an Maruti 800 of yore days wherein one can simply steer to the left overtake and steer to the right in one go! Vista -you can do that in 5th gear at 60+![/SIZE][/FONT]
I had driven petrol cars mostly earlier and hence it will certainly take a while to get used to a diesel car.
