Sam, Gautam, belated Congrats on a historic road trip! Logged in after 5 days & read this in one go (I'd missed the build up prior to the drive). Well done guys! And Congrats to the little reliable yellow wonder as well!

We were surprised and touched. You packed and brought us those burgers from McDees at the time when we were most hungry. Just want to thank you and say that we really enjoyed meeting you.
And that, in a nutshell is Deky for you. I think back to the GQ drive & I remembering hearing how he was there with his wife carrying Coffee & Sandwiches late at night

Lol, Thanks Suman Bhai. And long distance driving is all about Team spirit isnt it? So I am glad to be a part, however small maybe, of the team.

But seriously I wish I could have done more if then, the GQ guys had decided to break at Jaipur instead of Behror and this time Sam & NC were not in such a hurry to meet the deadline.

Neverthless, it was great meeting both the teams.

Default Nano it is...

Congratulations.. it is a matter of pride for every indian, that a small car designed, developed n produced in india could undergo this strenuous test, without any major issues on the release.

Please share more about the experiance of the car and it's performance. I remember being so proud spotting out some 800's around munich way back in 2000. At this rate, it is not far many a indian cars will be seen around the world.

3.What is the average fuel efficiency kmpl you got? ( can be calculated from 1 & 2) - ABout 21kmpl
4.What was total expenditure on fuel & toll ? - We spent about 3600 on petrol. Even though we started maintaining a toll log, we lost count - it is my estimation that the toll came up to about Rs. 1200/-

Congratulations Sam and NC!
I had a few questions about your experience with Nano on Highway:
1. Did Rear seat get very hot after having covered close to 600-700 KM at one stretch ? Had there been a passenger seating on Rear seats; would he have started feeling uncomfortable due to the same?
2. How was the stability in cross winds at the speed of 80 ? Especially, when a big vehicle would have crossed from opposite side?

Spirited narration and excellent comments to the thread are much lesser words for Sam and NC, it is much more. As AVR mentioned, what got me glued to the thread ( apart from the trademark of Yetiblog and Sam) was the team spirit of Team Bhp. Kudos to you guys for keeping bright the essence and spirit of Team BHP!

I read a review on mouthshut saying that rear seat got really hot even after a small journey of 15- 20 KM making it uncomfortable for the passenger in the rear seat.Did anyone of you experience that too?
