I really liked the car pics. Very nice!

Don't feel too bad that HMP probably knows who the errant salesman is. He should be given a chance to learn from his mistakes. Nice to know that HMP monitors online feedback.

Mustang29, this is worth a concern. I never thought of it, in fact. we will have to get some expert openion on this.I dont know the real cause of damage the sunfilm brings in there though. hmm, but i did not want to have max transperancy over there that enable tailing dudes to peep in, as well.

blackasta, thanks for your comments on photos

RamSagar, mileage is not yet assessed properly..my assumption is that it is ~15 in highway and ~(8-12) in city with AC on all the time (based on refuelling frequencies). will update the exact figures here asap.

Hey Congrats Kiran on your new buy. Great Pics.
Regarding mileage i just came back after a 600 K.m run(in this 50 Km city run). The FE measured was 12.21 (Full time AC). Given it for 1st service today. Do inform us what FE you have got

Your views please.
i've had sunfilm, 3M RE70 on the Baleno Vxi for last four years. not a problem at all. Mind I must have used the de-fogger not more than a dozen times throughout, last time was two days back. no problemo!

thanks, wildon I may need your help regarding FE. what is the best/practical method to measure FE accurately ? one of my friends explained a cumbersome method-filling tank full of fuel, shake the car and fill it again to make sure it is topped up..then drive till it goes empty !!! how accurate are i20 fuel gauge to rely upon for the purpose?

friends, any suggestions? (something as easy as reserve to reserve in bikes)

The best way to find the mileage IMHO, would be to fill the tank to the max ( without shaking) and then probably travel for 100 - 125 kms and then again fill the tank. Measure the amount of fuel and distance covered, you will get your fuel efficiency for highway driving. For city conditions drive for 4-5 days in all situations like with ac / w/o ac. slow speeds, avg speeds, etc.

hi wildon

blackasta is right, those are parking sensors.
chose the body coloured among many

I was on a pondicherry trip last week and checked FE.
it was 12.4. (distance traveled: 120KM).
I was mostly driving at 80-100 kmph;highway driving.
now measuring FE in city...

12.4 is low for the 1.2 i 20. On highways I consistently get better than 15, from day 1. Of course this can vary dramatically if the filling method is not consistent. That's why it is best to see this on a longer basis, after 3 to 4 top ups, because the effect of measurement errors get reduced considerably in that case. Top up to auto cut off, and then after about 500 kms, do just that again, having noted any quantity filled between the two top ups. Distance by total fuel filled after the first top up ought to give you a more accurate result.
I also think that topping up past the auto shut off drains your pocket more than it ought to.

Hm.. Well my chennai trip is due this month, and my 1st service is over. Let me see whether the FE improved this time.
