TheBeast, thanks for correcting. The Civics and Citys with same colour names and models confused me. Silver colour has been chosen and the dealership has been requested to hold a car with stock Michelins.

I have to say that this colour is classy, but I have seen very few takers for this shade in east Delhi.
Thanks a lot!!! you hold very high regards in my heart and I guess it is same for all TBHPians.

The color was my wife's choice, she advised her brother to buy same color in his indica vista as well.

My favorite was 'Bold Beige Metallic', but now I have started loving this color more, specially in night it gives a bluish look which looks very classy.

Thanks buddy, I wont go for a new handle I am more than happy with the current one and moreover the short name 'TBF' given by many members .

Fiesta still and will always hold a special place in my heart.

Just cross check with dealership for the stock tyres, In my case Jan'10 models were having Michlean but the dealership couldn't hold one for 20+ days and then I had seen around 7-8 Feb'10 models, all with MRF as stock.

There is a difference of around INR1000/- per tyres for exchange.

Free Bees:
  • Honda Cushions
  • Neck Pillows (AutoForm)

Unfortunately no, I don't know you. But yes I would love to meet you and obviously I am at same company and location (I'm in Tower E 5th Floor).

I made calculated guess because I saw your city at the parking and knowing the trends about people leaving from here and going in next lane to join XBX (Only they have recruitment going on for Bangalore and Noida locations for PM group). (I can apply for Sherlock Holmes role )

Sent you PM with my id if wanna meet sometime.

Default First Tank To Tank Average

I know all of us are always interested in knowing the average of any car, here comes my first using Tank to Tank method:

KMs : 310
Fuel : 29.8
Avg : 10.4 KM / Ltr.
Car's Meter showing avg as : 12.5

Difference between car's method and manual method = 2.1 KM.

We know the car's meter is showing around 1 KM difference in average, another 1 could be due to upgrade to wider tyres? Experts can comment on that part.

I will update more on this with future tank to tank method.

Note: This average includes a traffic jam of 300mtr. consuming more than 75 min. during which car's meter decreased from 13.6 to 12.8

I do similar calculations on my ANHC and have got mileage figures ranging between 11.1 and 11.7 kmpl by tank to tank method.

I observed that the car's meter shows somewhat realistic(or close to real) figures when one runs the car till the 'Low Fuel' indicator glows(in yellow) before re-filling the tank.

I agree with Kalyan, I have also noticed this several times.

it is simply fill it, shut it, forget it, drive it gets empty.

Thanks Guys, next time I will wait till 'Low Fuel' indicator glows and will update.

I know this excitement will be over once it clock 1000/2000 KMs.

Thanks a lot buddy!

I think that the city is quite a photogenic car, with a right background, it looks very stunning in polished metal, like some pics below, courtesy paultan.org.

And some more pics of your new ride with wider tyres?

But destiny, it always has its share; the very same company offered the Noida location on 12th Feb which I grabbed with both hands. I will be joining them by mid of Apr’10.
Lucky car eh?
Congrats on your car man. You have grabbed a very special set of wheels.
BTW, now you have to take care of your wife and GF both at the same time.

Thanks for the update TBF. We're also thinking of getting the Modulo Grill, but I found some nice looking Mugen grills on the net. Lets see.

Last but not the least are the initial owners of ANHC who are still sharing their rich experience.

The reviews and experiences from the oldies (i mean by owning ANHC) like 'Guna', 'Netarchi', 'Skywalker', 'Starvega' to new ones like 'kalyan_hyd' are just too great.
Congrats friend for the new car.Excellent write up.Please continue to update.

I am also thankful to Team Bhp for helping me to make the right decision.The frequent updates on team Bhp helped me to buy the car before the price rise in April 2009.

Bit disappointed that you didnot find my thread on ANHC.May be the name of the thread was not striking.

No way, how one can miss your thread, actually I named just few whose threads I saw in the very beginning and if I am not wrong they were the early owners as well.

But each and every thread of TBHP contributes and helps other.
