Thank you swiftnfurious. The yellow sticker on the bottom right corner of the windshield is the vehicle sticker for the company I work for.

I too loved the Panorama shot. Required lots of patience and steady hands to click this one. I have to buy a tripod for the new camera so I can start taking more panorama shots in my future roadtrips. The season at Ooty is going to start by April. Thats when the place gets really crowded and accomodation is pretty expensive. Plan a trip before April or sometime after June.

Yet to get the 3M Exterior detailing done for my Swift. Will get it done within a months time. The job takes about 3-4 hrs. Its recommended for cars above 2 years when the paint gets to become dull (looses the wet look) and lots of swirl/minor scratches appear on the paint. There is a 3M direct shop near the Indiranagar BDA complex. Somewhere near the Goodyear showroom there. Around 3k for the treatment. Many Car manufacturer service centers also do this.
