yea I m definitely gonna do it again. but this time, I m gonna make it shiny and sparkly like urs... Plus, I have to restore the small chrome bit on the handle...
also, I've came across a city having METALLIC GREY panels... the one for sale on PW. u also commented in the thread. the colour is black may be but the reflection looks pretty awesome.
Should I try the colour this time.?
also, the compound u mentioned id the same. but can it be used to buff plastic surfaces, e.g headlights???
Oh yes... completely agree... i can do the job with just one AAMIR shot...
However, DIY ka apna thread hona chahie... thats the best option.
taa ke is page ke start me index hojaye...
hahaha! I get it... lets see what i can do... I am planning to sound deaden the trunk by using foam underlay first. If not satisfactory, then dyanamat.
the underlay will do the job for me I think, i.e the job of the carpet.
yaar, when I changed the tyres of the red city, the shop waala offered a michelien tyre for rs 9400. when I inquired abt manufacture, He said it was RUSSIAN... maine kaha yaar ager england, japan, thailand ya kaheen b aur ka hota to main le leta. But, ye RUSSIAN, sorry.
after hearing it was russian, i didn't bother to check the model. however, I have heard pretty good feelings about the energy saver. as brother salman has suggested...
hmmm, bro, for ur mileage, I won't say that its bad, but its not satisfactory at all either. the tank capacity of ur city is 42L.
now that u've averaged 443 kms, lets presume at the time of the yellow light, you had consumed 38 liters. (assuming there were 4 liters back there)
this comes out to be around 11.4 kPL.
We have instances of a 1.5L steermatic being driven around 507 kms in one full tank with full intercity, AC, and occasional over speeding to 130, 140kmh.
urs being an idsi should get more than 550kms in one tank with the drive u've mentioned. Could u please share the mileage of ur car?
the periodic maintenance u've done so far? The engine oil u use? I presume the model of ur car is around 2004 from the fact that u have an "EPS" light in the fuel gauge cluster. later models came with the universal Electric power steering symbol.
To have better mileage, u can try the following:
-change the air filter
-change the spark plugs and use good quality ones.
-change the fuel filter and clean the fuel lines.
-get ur engine tuned up a bit e.g throttle body service, tappets adjustment etc.
wow bro... u got awesome mileage. but as I don't care about the mileage so much so i get around 150 km per cylinder, maximum filled with 8.6 kg gas at 200 bar pressure (the max allowed these days). Total intercity driving with the maximum gear being deployed the 3rd forward, occasionally, the 4th.
