      Have a different set of requirements for the next few years. The regular quick darting around can be handled admirably well by the GT TDI. The Laura was wasted on me as without mods it wasn't fun(not engine wise but otherwise) and I was in no mood to spend a fortune on it to get it to my liking.

      I've read that men can never know what a woman is thinking or why she makes some decisions they do, same would apply to Hari. None of us have really figured out how he decides on what car to buy next

      One year he wants a Veyron beater with tarmac hugging, speed breaker bending ground clearance. Next year he goes and buys a Thar. Then he realises he can't turn up at work with mud all over his face. So goes and exchanges a Laura diesel for a Laura Petrol and sells the Thar because losing money on one vehicle isn't Nambi's cup of tea

      Then realises the Laura is too big for city use, so buys a Polo Diesel which he usually brings to most drives (so much for Laura being a weekend car). Then Polo turns out to return excellent FE, carries good speeds, but lacks cornering ability. So goes and lowers the Polo with Bilsteins so that now each time the Polo faces a speed breaker, the only passenger allowed in the car has to get out, so that the Polo can make it thru while Nambi slowly sits on the window ledge and tries to steer the car ever so slightly trying hard to levitate to prevent his side from touching the speed breaker.

      Then one night, many Gods appear in his dream and promise him salvation if he turns up at Tawang. So in search of eternal peace, he sells the Laura and buys a Duster. The Gods are angry seeing him drive down in a frog, so they banish him back into the city life, one famous for floods at that, hoping that a shoe (anyone read that blog?) is not all he'd lose.

      In two months from now, the frog will be lowered to 0.987234mm off the ground, the elusive hunt to make it a Veyron beater will start again, until the God's appear in his dreams again

      Congrats Megazoid!! A Polo GT with lowered sport suspension for quick darts and a Duster AWD for the mountain drives is a very good combo.

      Well that is one bit that is fixed now, at least on the power output front. You should drive that thing now!

      I am sure you have made a mad car out of it. My poor pure stock Laura! Yes would like to see it bristle with anger and thunder down tree lined roads. Put up some tacho/speedo videos for us to share the happiness.
