Drifter,

I had 1 alloy wheel repaired on my Accord after encountering a terrible pothole. The wheel was totally out. It was done by professionals in boston and the job was really good. No worries about the wheel being out or anything...it was repaired as good as new.

I have heard a lot about International Tyres and have no doubt that their service will be equally pro-grade.

hey guys,

drove drifter's crdi accent a short distance..and the car has me impressed ...loads of torque from low down..the car pulls away from standstill as if there are ants in its pants.....and i was like [img]http://www.team-bhp.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/***.gif[/img] *..is this a diesel ??

the suspension feels better than any other accent.....and the only worry i had was abt the bent alloys...drifter pal get it done asap..

amazing and the car was pretty silent too....we had a small drag too ..hehe *

hey drifter / rj ,

how abt letting me carry a proper road test on the crdi ??

cheers

Haha, we have yet another CRDi convert. Join the club NC, I was blown away when I drove an Accent CRDi for the first time in 2003. Diesels have so much more character than petrols....CRDi rocks!!

Hey NC,
well man..thats CRDi tech for you..absolutely mindblowing. I'll tell you something..a few days back I drove my Indica (after many days) & it felt so horribly slow I mean not that I was flooring the CRDi or anything but just that damn thing is fast even in regular driving! Like I always say if only noise in the car was dampened then one would absolutely have no idea that its a diesel. And yes the suspension is better than the petrol Accent & so are the brakes..the ride is also better since the car weighs around 1150kgs.

My car is just 10days old now..i'll surely let you drive it when we meet the next time.

NC,
no man...my Indica hasn't gone yet. If you do have any one who might want it then let me know. Yes, it does make sense to have a diesel car in the family if you travel long & with CRDi you also get the fun & not just a boring diesel engine.
Getz CRDi expected by March..
