more likely karthik 1100 is postponing his munnar trip, he is not feeling well from 2 days, but not sure of cancelling also, as soon as he get well, he will run

I am happy!

Karthik1100 has told me that he would give me the 1.6 for a few days. I just returned Sujith's Punto yesterday and got back my 118 NE. I dont yet know which car of mine Karthik1100 would take away from me when he leaves the 1.6 with me.

I think I saw the car @ Gowri Automobiles last Saturday. I was told by Venkatesh that it is undergoing Gasket repair/replacement along with a host of other jobs. Never knew it was this car.

How is the performance now after the repairs?

we took back the car on the sunday afernoon and couldnt drive much. ya the car is smoother than before. venkatesh is well experienced mechanic, still a problem is left out unidentified. when karthik 1100 was driving 3times brake failed, luckily he escaped all the 3 brake failures. brake pedals gets too hard to press. and this problem was not occurred when mechanic was driving.

I assume that the Palio would have some sort of a brake booster. Could it be an issue with it? Please do get it checked thoroughly before using the car. You can drive the 1.6 with any issues, but not braking issues

Simply superb Ram!!
So cute and very properly decorated with Italian stickers. All stickers related to FIAT. Why did you sold yar? Now very difficult to get back such a beautiful piece again . Anyway , the buyer must also be a true FIAT fan.
