  1. Sad to see petrol prices increasing, they went down when this was initially launched.

    Hyderabad to Bhutan RoadTrip

    This is my dream trip, even I am thinking of doing this for the past 1 year. Again getting leave for 15 days is a big challenge at my work place.
  3. Hey Guys, I am confused! How are 12 points calculated, different sources show different information. Is it like accumulating 12 in a year(1-Aug-17 to 1-Aug-18) or is it like accumulating at any point of time in any time period and licence stands canceled for 1 year

    Car painting DIY tips & tricks

    Thanks @Ranger, After watching the video I feel black and white are the best colors for DYI work. Lower tank bund is too far for me, any shops around Kukatpalli to Miyapur are fine with me. BTW I am planning to use this on metal panels

    Car painting DIY tips & tricks

    I am considering the one in this. http://www.com-paint.com/scratch-solutions/com-paint-value-pack-kit/com-paint-value-pack-kit-for-cars-880.html Car is Baleno - Ray Blue
  6. Need some expert advise on paint jobs & DYI tricks. Driving in bumper to bumper traffic with careless drivers leaves some serious scratches on the car, my car is no exception here. I tried checking with local painters & MASS, they are quoting exorbitant prices which I am not comfortable. I started searching for alternatives online, came across this "Value Pack Kit for Cars" from www.com-paint.com. Wanted to check if it is worth giving a try. Did anyone use it? Is it so difficult to use? Does it require any additional equipment?
  7. Nope we don't require licence to buy a car. Vehicle can even be registered on business names as well. There should be very strict laws to monitor for people who drive with suspended licence.
  8. It is a welcome move by Hyderabad Police. But how would they manage this, for example one licence is suspended, how would they ensure that the same person is not driving. Whats are the charges if a person with suspended licence is found driving. This is well tested and successfull formula on foreign lands, hope it works in India as well

    Hyderabad Road accidents

    Volvo will release a investigation report for every major accident reported. May be this time it is big people so that is keeping Mercedes from making the report public. I am sure they might have done the analysis.

    Hyderabad ORR

    Yesterday one of my colleague sparked a discussion on the similar topic He says speedometer of the vehicle measures the speed of the wheel not speed of the vehicle, this means vehicles with bigger wheels(Volvo bus for example) at 100kmph on speedometer can over take a small car which is doing 140kmph on speedometer. Is that true? Or it is just a blind assumption he is making?

    Hyderabad Road accidents

    Surprisingly there is no comment from the car Manufacturer. Do they accept the failure of safety equipment in the car or they just don't want to comment.

    Hyderabad Road accidents

    Video is a clear indicator, car's back wheel went up to 60 degrees high. We can imagine the intensity of the hit(it is a 2.8 ton vehicle). From the day one my question about Hyderabad metro remains intact: Does Hyderabad really need a metro? With strict rules and better roads one can easily solve city's traffic issues. Even if metro come into operational government has to push on using public transport, but it is doing in the other way. SRDP project encourages use of private vehicles making a way for more such accidents during construction phase. Ultimate lesson learnt: When there is poor visibility be ultra careful, don't underestimate anything. L&T has to install LED bulbs for better visibility of pillars during night times.

    Hyderabad ORR

    I would love to join, we will plan a exploration drive if possible Even I am curious on this, but I don't think that is possible. We will be entering the first toll gate on the left side where started but we will never reach the same toll gate on the right. Just a wild assumption correct me if I am wrong!
