      Wow, straight out of some dream sequence with respect to the way Skoda FASS handled it! Great to know that you and your family were unhurt.

      Yeah , but my expriance is skoda rapid parts are very easily available , i think it has to do with massive localisation they had , unlike superb which is mostly import .

      True but my SIL had similar instances with her Polo
      So I dont think the issue is entirely due to imported

      Not so bad but expect bad traffic clogs and slow moving traffic everywhere. Which part of the City you will be in ? And where all you plan to travel ?

      No issues there. Mahabs is technically not Chennai Its 45 kms from the Chennai border. Recently they've cleaned and beautified the place so there should be no issues. Except that plan for a couple of hours extra cos of the rains.

      You can exclude Guindy National park from the list. Arignar Anna Zoological park will be a big daddy of Guindy National park and will have a lot more animals which you cannot find in Guindy National Park.

      If you're interested to watch Reptiles like Snake and Crocodiles, then visit the Snake park in the same Guindy National Park.

      Fort Museum last I remember was under renovation couple of months back. Not sure if its completed and open again for Public. Do have a check on that.

      Mahabalipuram, yes a must watch now, especially after Modi visit, its glittering & do visit before it dulls down

      Other amusement / historical places if you would like to visit, Chokhi Dhani, Santhome Basilica Church (one of the 3 Apostles in the World), Dakshin Chitra, Matsya Narayana Temple

      pushkaraj - Are you travelling in the weekend of 26th & 27th ? If yes, let me remind you its Diwali weekend, most of the places might be hell crowded and crackers bursting and stopping you when you're moving around residential areas. Highways will not be an issue. Most of the places might be closed due to Diwali on Sunday.
