That's an amazing FE you have achieved dezpo . Just check once under the hood if they have fitted DDiS by mistake .

Also, put up a detailed Travelogue of your trip. Just one wonderful photo won't satisfy us.

Hi Dezpo,

Bikers are great to make injury in the front and back bumpers. It happened to me too. But decided to repaint once in a year after having all the bang of the bikers. Mine VDI ABS is getting 5 months old with 12800kms.

I own a Ritz Zxi and it has covered 15K+ Kms. The Engine is absolutely silent and many a times I absent mindedly re-crank the motor not knowing that its already running. The only way you can make out whether the engine is running by looking at the RPM meter. I think the K-Series Engines are super smooth.

God bless.....

You can feel the engine by touching the gear knob. If it is running it will give vibration and you can shift the gear.

Only on the DDIS and not on the K-Series.

Yup, it's holding up around 12kmpl for city and 19kmpl on highways.
Considering new soft tyres and a todler in the back seat, driving mode has been changed to ultra smooth. I think it's doing just great!


Will be completing 7 years this september.

Some updates:
- Done around ~55k on odo.
- Have upgraded to Bridgestone AR20 185/70 R14.
- Front suspension link rod changed twice.
- Rear right door glass pane vibrates only if it's moved down.
- Had to refill AC gas, haven't done leak check yet.
- Upgraded to Philips xtreme vision

For a tall boy I'm surprised with it's handling, it's fun around the corners for sure
