      I reside in Sithalapakkam and I have seen your palio a few times en route. Your car is very impressive.

      April 2016

      The Odo had crossed the 95k mark. Got the fuel tank and pump replaced. Murugan helped to source used ones from Pudhupet. Few months back the tank developed minor hairline cracks and had used temp fix of m-seal to arrest the same. Then was in the hunt for a tank with a proper working pump (read working float ) and finally after a couple of lost attempts got one in fairly good condition.

      Now the fuel gauge finally works Dance



      TODAY's update:

      363 is now back to Coimbatore. Drove down this morning.

      The Odo now stands a little over 96,500. After a lot of deliberation got the alloys changed.

      As mentioned in previous posts all 4 wheels have bends. Off late the impact of the wheel bends increased and hence took a call and changed them.

      Was contemplating various options from getting used or on buying from kava and so on.

      Finally right in time came the offer from FIAT for the graphite grey gp alloys and ordered them right away at marvel FIAT in erode.

      The wheels arrived within 4 days and picked them up from erode during one of my weekend home runs with Dhans.

      Then came the dilemma of tyres. Right from sizes to brands and finally went in for 195/55/R15 alnac4g primarily due to budget constraints.

      Now let the pictures do some talking

      Alloys stacked in linea


      Odo hit 96 mark


      The Apollo Alnac4G


      Got the tyres at Raja tyres Royapettah. Deal was 4100 per tyre.

      That's how the drive was today! This was captured from Salem to Perundurai

      It's a little over 96,900 on the odo now. Got the oil, oil filter and spark plugs changed when the odo stood at 96,811. Got the job done at Marvel Erode. Extremely happy with the workmanship. Plonked in the NGK Iridium plugs which I got from Dhans. Car runs smooth as always. Whatever little mis-firing was present so long has now vanished.

      Unfortunately, Marvel did not have the Selena K in stock, but they had the Petronas Syntium 5w40 and went in for the same.

      Cooling off for the works to begin. It was a 100kms one-way drive from home to Marvel.

      Driving through Perundurai during meal time and not visiting Lakshmi Vilas? Well that is a crime which I do not want to commit
      It was 12 noon when I got back to Perundurai after works and headed straight to Lakshmi Vilas. This place is very famous for the Kongu Parota's. Never had Biriyani here before and hence tried it and they did not disappoint me. The Mutton Kheema too was lip-smacking. Sorry to kindle your taste buds here, but it is a must visit place for foodies! (Vegans, please excuse!)

      The Odo is now at 97,213. Car has been in a rather long hibernation since the battery is doing duty in my amby

      Got 363 stamped with the signature of the great Giorgetto Giugiaro.

      It's 97,455 on the Odo and completed a drive to ooty last weekend.


      Half tank fuel for 222kms which averages to about 9.25kmpl for the round trip.

      Some pics en route. Pics courtesy TurboCharged




      Special thanks to Krish for the wonderful clicks.
